Update: A picture of the song list can be seen at the bottom of this blog topic. The Queen numbers are very predictable and so are some of the personal choices, although for one of the latter numbers, you have to fill in the blanks! Ha!
In addition, the six vocalists will be singing a second song of their own choosing, which should be interesting and, perhaps, helpful. Hopefully, with a personal selection, each singer will have an opportunity to showcase their individual style, rendering a highly relaxed and believable performance.
Queen’s music is so difficult. How can you not compare it to the original – that iconic sound coming from the golden throat of the late and great Freddie Mercury?
I don’t have high hopes for this theme on Wednesday and, worse, I can visualize the decibels going up mucho notches during the performances. But, hey, that’s just me!
At the very least, they should be able to hit a vocal home run with their Personal Song Choice, give and take the red tape headaches they had to endure to obtain copyright for televised performance of their selected song.
You know, a few years ago on American Idol, the singers had to sing their two numbers back to back. I liked this approach. It gave me an idea of how the singers would fare during an actual performance.
It would be great to see this idea implemented once again. And, if the singers could add a short spoken intro. to each song, that would be bonus. Another way to attach themselves to the audience and give us a wider glimpse into their performing personality.
