Have Mercy, this is Virtual Insanity! That's a Crazy shade of Yellow. Musta been Touched By An Angel. LOL. Have you figured out all the songs yet?
Sorry, sleep deprivation makes me extra corny.
Ok, here is the song list for the Grand Finals Performance Show. Sylvia won the coin-toss, but we have no idea what the song order is for the night, so this is listed in no particular order.
Sylvia's songs :
1. Best song from the season - Mercy by Duffy
2. Any choice of song - Yellow by Coldplay
Sylvia's version is gonna be like a mash up of the Coldplay version and the Tanya Chua version, and of course she will be making it her own :) I heard her sing it during keycheck, her way, and its wow lemmetellyou!
3. Idol Winner's Single
Sezairi's Songs :
1. Best song of the season : Virtual Insanity by Jamiroquai
2. Any choice of song : Crazy by Aerosmith
Airi will be doing his own version of this song, giving it a more bluesy feel rather than pure rock. Its a great song choice, and from what I've heard, the new arrangement sounds promising.
3. Idol Winner's single.
'Something different from 'I Dream' and 'You Give Me Wings'.
And now, on to the Winner's Single. It's called "Touched By An Angel" and its written by Idol Judge Ken Lim. We all know he's a producer and songwriter. The judges are all away right now on a short break before the Finals, but I managed to get this quote from Uncle Ken via text - he had just flown off to Europe the night before and had penned the lyrics to this song just before the flight. The song is about "the (idol) journey and the realisation of your dreams unfolding".
When I told him there was an old tv show by the same name, he said he "wasn't aware, just wanted something different from 'I Dream' and 'You Give Me Wings'."
Both Sylvia and Sezairi seem to like it. Sylvia says its "inspirational" and Airi thought it was an "awesome" song and is "very reflective of the journey". I told Uncle Ken as much, and his very humble reply was simply "Hope it works....". Aww. Guess all songwriters hope their audience will like their song. :)
Ok, thats all for the performance show. I have no idea what the opening number is yet, I saw some scribbles on the preliminary rundown that had a Bad Romance-Boom Boom Pow etc medley (that would be cool!!).
I shall be back with group songs and a rundown of the show as soon as I hear :) Whoa, 8pm now, gotta run - time to feed the kiddos, then pack for KL! Will be outta town for a week and back for the weekend roadshows, but not to worry, will still blog!
