Know what I'm full of? Glee.
Ok, I know, lame joke, give me the 'L', but you know that expression, 'filled with glee'? That expression is so apt because thats exactly how I feel whenever I watch Glee. I've been meaning to share about this lil' gem of a show for ages, but keep getting sidetracked by the Idol stuff I have to share.
Anyway, I also wanna talk about Glee cos every time I watch it I find myself thinking hey these are great song choices for the Idols. I watched Episode 2 and the lead geek, I mean character, Rachel (dark haired girl below the cheerleader), covered Rihanna's 'Take A Bow' (see vid below) and OMG I could so see Tabby or Sylvia singing it. The minute I watched it, I wanted to show it to either girl so they could learn how to emote like her ....
So many good songs on Glee that the Idols can take a cue from in terms of song selection because the songs they normally do, especially the solos (with arrangements obviously tailored for solo performances), are poised to showcase the singer's vocals.
Here's the vid I mentioned above. Watch.
The character singing is Rachel Berry, played by the very talented Lea Michele. (Yes, they all really sing on the show. No voice stand-ins on this show, most of the actors have theatre backgrounds.)
If you haven't watched Glee, its about time you start ;)
There's just something so appealing about their Zero to Hero stories.
The tagline goes : "A Biting Comedy For The Underdog In All Of Us."
ps. You can catch Glee on mio Tv.
pps. Can you tell who're supposed to be the losers in the show? :P love their promo posters. Suddenly its cool to be a Loser ;)
