Friday Five: American Idol Edition

Songbird of RevGalBlogPals writes:

Yes, it's true. I've been watching Season Six of American Idol with my daughter, our first time dipping into this particular well of pop culture. In the spirit of believing you can do anything, as the auditioners so clearly do, please fill in the following five blanks.

1) If I could sing like anyone, it would be ________.
This is a hard one. I've been told I sound like Stevie Nix (formerly of Fleetwood Mac fame, if you are old enough to remember...) Personally, I'd rather sing like Sarah McLachlan ("In the Arms of an Angel"). But hey, since we're going for all-out fantasy here, let's just be brave and say Denyce Graves!

2) I would love to sing the song _________________.

Going with my last fantasy and if I were singing like Denyce, I'll say "L'amour est un oiseau rebelle " from Carmen. But just for fun, I'd love to sing "Lovin' You" like Minnie Riperton!

3) It would be really cool to sing at ____________.
Well, let's go all out. Sing in the warm-up band for the Stones next concert tour. Hey, I'd even sing back-up.

4) If I could sing a dream duet it would be with ___________.
Hands down. Bono!

5) If I could sing on a TV or radio show, it would be __________________.
Must I? Well, fame has its price... I guess I'd sing on the Grammys. Care to join me?

DOOOooo-wah.... DOOOooo-wah!

Deb said...

ROFL... well, not doing Carmen. But yeah, Bono and I would be up for that. ;)

how cool to actually sound like stevie!

sarah is AMAZING!

awesome play!

Sarah MacLachlan and Minnie Riperton were both invoked in this year's auditions for AI. (I can't believe I know that.)

Deb said...

"I've been told" vs. what I really sound like... yeah. Reality is always 90% perception. I prolly didn't do Stevie any favors on that one!

As long as I don't sound like Patrick or Sponge Bob, I'm happy. ;)

Oh, yeah, Bono too. Love Bono!

Sally said...

Ooh I went for Carmen too!!! excellent play!

Oh wow, Deb--I LOVE both Fleetwood Mac and Sarah Mac. Thanks for the awesome play to make my day!

Iris said...

Fun list, Deb! Sarah's on my list, too.

I'd be too awed by Bono to actually sing with him...does it count to just gaze adoringly at him?!

Your list rocks. For real yo. *guitar riff by Keith Richards goes here*

I have heard Denyce Graves live - good choice! She also sang at President Ford's funeral. GREAT voice!
