Sunday Night Spoilers.
What songs will the kids be singing this week? I do have a little inside information to share with ya all. OK. I know it ain’t much. But it’s somethin’. And I’m ever so grateful to my sources. Thank You.
Nothing cast in stone, of course, but here’s what I got:
Ayla Brown is working on a Sarah MacLachlan song. Supposedly, she has approved a preliminary arrangement and has rehearsed it with the band.
Will Makar will be singing a ballad this week. Nothing more specific on that, yet.
ETA: Ok, I’ve received more information from a reliable source. Thank You. Spoiling songs is difficult, because song selections ARE subject to change. Ayla may have been rehearsing a Sarah McLachlan song, but for various reasons, her selection could have changed. And I have more information on Will’s selection. Again, nothing cast in stone, yada yada yada…
Ayla Brown – a Celine Dion song
Will Makar – “Lady” – by Lionel Richie
Ace – “If You’re Not the One” – by Daniel Bedingfield
David Radford – “The Way You Look Tonight” – Standard, by Frank Sinatra and others, recently done by Rod Stewart
Taylor Hicks – “Easy” – by The Commodores, I believe
Before They Were Idols
I thought it would be cool to feature music made by the Top 24 before they auditioned for Idol. Some of these clips were emailed to me, left in my comments section, or found on message boards (particular thanks to the HH).
Here is an original tune performed by Bucky Covington posted on Bucky Covington Online.com
Jose “Sway” Penala’s fansite has an entire page devoted to Sway’s music and tunes recorded with his band, 6th Day.
Here is a song recorded by Paris Bennett.
From the CBS StarSearch Page, Lisa Tucker competing in Star Search – Junior Division when she was 13.
A snippet of Ace Young’s song on the “Little Vampire” soundtrack.
Music and more music from Chris Daughtry’s band, Absent Element
Taylor Hicks, who’s been gigging for 10 years, has a ton of stuff out there. Here are four mp3s to down load: Georgia on My Mind (this is a gem, highly recommended), Heart and Soul, Hell of a Day and Soul Thing. Also, mp3s Taylor’s college band recorded, posted by Taylor’s friend, Steven Jackson.
Ayla Brown’s fansite Ayla-Brown.org has posted mp3s and video from a benefit she performed.
Will Makar’s band, Last Born. And, a home video.
Any other Idol hidden gems out there? Either shoot me an email, or post in my comment section. Thanks.
I’ve updated and added website links for Bucky Covington, Will Makar, David Radford and Taylor Hicks, here. And I’ve re-written and added pictures to the guys’ performance recap from Wednesday. I re-posted the guys’ recap here–with the girls’ recap posted right below.
