This week country artist, Shania Twain, will mentor the six remaining singers of American Idol Season 9.
The singers will be performing numbers selected from Shania’s catalogue of music.
As I have previously stated, this will be no easy task as Shania’s music contains a multitude of pitfalls.
You rarely hear singers performing covers of her music and for good reason.
Many of the upbeat numbers are scaled perfectly for Shania’s voice and performing style.
Nevertheless, the ballads should work fine for all the singers – the lyrics and the music are memorably cohesive and will strongly resonate with the listeners.
Although I am tentative about the show’s format, I still sense we are in for some great surprises this evening. Sometimes a ton of good escalates from the unlikeliest sources. Time will tell!
And Shania will, undoubtedly, be a very supportive and knowledgeable mentor to these singers and will impart some stellar performance hints that should aid them in tonight’s showcase.
Best of luck to the Top 6 Finalists and feel welcome to add your comments before, during and after the live telecast on Tuesday, April 20th.
