I hope Aroha does well with

I hope Aroha does well with 'Circle of Life'. It's a chance to show off her voice, if anything.

interesting song choices!

interesting song choices!

Admin, you did exactly what

Admin, you did exactly what I did :D
Camille didnt have the voice for Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. I think this is the performance for Becks to show is she is capable of being the New Zealand Idol.  If she brings it, and performs well, she is set :D

I dont see how Aroha will match Jeniffer Hudson

I also think the group song will be Im still standing, as Becks said she couldnt choose this song for the week as it was unavailable as someone else had chosen it. 

Here's Fantasia singing

Here's Fantasia singing Something about the Way You Look Tonight.

Here's Jennifer Hudson

Here's Jennifer Hudson singing Circle of Life.

I didn't like that. Not

I didn't like that. Not necessarily her voice. I just didn't like it.

P.S. This song reminds me of Idolblog Idol now. XD

That was terrible. I'm

That was terrible. :|
I'm pretty sure Becks can do a lot better than that!

Becks will do much much much

Becks will do much much much better than that, and when she pulls it off, people will get why shes a big deal :D

I think Becks has chosen a

I think Becks has chosen a risky song, but the point is, she has made very safe choices so far, so I think it is great that she has chosen this song.  I think her voice will suit it and she will pull it off!

Good to see she is taking a risk - I think the safest choice is Indiras, what a lame-oh! Snooze fest

On further thought, even

On further thought, even though I love the song lol gosh its so safe.. anyone can sing can you feel the love tonight.. gahhhhh

There's two songs from The

There's two songs from The Lion King in there. That'll do for my Lion King theme I suggested. XD

ROAR!! :roar:

aren't they both like some

aren't they both like some of the most popular songs for auditions? mannn we soo need a musical theme!

Oh I'm not sure but I love

Oh I'm not sure but I love the songs and they're lion related so that makes me happy. :P lol

Mate Indira singing "Can you

Mate Indira singing "Can you feel the love tonight" I mean I love the song, thats because I can sing it lol.  Its a pretty easy song to get a grip on!  Yeh I think Beck's can handle the song Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.  She's just gonna have to perform her butt off :).  But I know she can!

I'm reeeeeeeeeeeally worried

I'm reeeeeeeeeeeally worried for Becks this week - it's a VERY risky song choice!!

Interesting song choices...

Interesting song choices... i thought someone would do "rocketman" or "sacrifice" I think Becks may struggle in the higher register of "yellow brick road"... Toni EXCELLENT song choice (once again), "your song" is one of my favourites from Elton...

Clinton was going to do

Clinton was going to do Rocketman if he had stayed on.

hmmm thats too bad... he may

hmmm thats too bad... he may have done that well

Toni - Your Song *raises

Toni - Your Song

I'm really looking forward to this performance as Steve did a great job of it last year. I hope she puts a really cool spin on it.

Awesome song TONI love YOUR

Awesome song TONI love YOUR SONG

I'm really worried about

I'm really worried about Yellow Brick Road - I didn't think anyone should pick that song.

I was talking to her on

I was talking to her on Friday and she said she'd thought about it but wasn't too happy or something. I can't quite remember. She hadn't decided on a song then. I hope she does really well then cos she seemed a bit worried.

I think Becks is the only

I think Becks is the only one who could pull it off.

Why are people worried about

Why are people worried about Yellow Brick Road? 

It's kind of a classic,

It's kind of a classic, untouchable song. Everyone's going to compare your version to Elton's, and it'll never come close. For that reason, its a dangerous song to pick.

However, when Jesse and Steve did classic U2 anthems for 80s week last year I thought the same thing and those perofrmances were two of their best from the whole season, so sometimes the risk pays off. If you stuff it up, you're almost inevitably gone.

It's kind of a classic,

It's kind of a classic, untouchable song.

It's not so much that, but more the range of the song. The whole appeal is the switch in the male voice during the chorus - it's not something that a woman's voice can do. The other problem is that the chorus is a myriad of backing vocals...not sure that Suzy and Sandy are up to it.

Suzanne and Yvonne

Suzanne and Yvonne :)

ah Yvonne lol....i've always

ah Yvonne lol....i've always wonderd what her name was :P

I look forward to her

I look forward to her version of it, you never know, she may change it ala guy sebastian and how he used to interpret his songs...she is a professional and will find her way to sing it...

If Kali ruins this one...

If Kali ruins this one... what am I saying? When Kali ruins this one, I'm going to cry.

I love "Your song" - and if

I love "Your song" - and if Toni's last it's probably going to be awesome :D

is that the confirmed order?

is that the confirmed order?

I don't know.

I dont think this is gonna

I dont think this is gonna be a good theme. Mainly because ive only ever heard of yellow brick road and circle of life. But i kinda hope indira doesnt do it- i dont know if shes vocally as strong as Jennifer Hudson from AI

What?! How can you not know

What?! How can you not know Circle of Life? Dude, it's only from like, the best movie ever!

They said it's one of the

They said it's one of the two they have heard. :P

And I don't know how you can judge it's not a good theme if you only know two songs. :|

I mean: in my opinion it

I mean: in my opinion it wont be a good night cause i wont be able to compare the contestant with the original song -and i cant sing along to it (remembering the Queen themed night on American Idol- argh)

But i guess your right. There are so many songs over the years on different idol shows that i never heard before but loved it after a few listens- eg. Australian band George- sung by Casey and Hayley in season 2 Australian Idol. I have never heard of George but the two songs i do know are great!

Nice to see you casting

Nice to see you casting doubts on how reliable I am... lol.

Matt and Ben are definite.

The others were recomendations or songs that the Idols had considered :-)

You're reliable - just heard

You're reliable :) just heard that some of the Idols are changing their minds (e.g. Becks).

I love Daniel - I would have

I love Daniel - I would have liked to see Clinton do it to it ;) umm anyway - I love Rocketman as well so yeeeeeh! GO CLINTON! I love IGTWTCI the blues as well so yay for Matt!

Becks isnt singing Daniel
