I was wondering what people thought of the theme for the last week being 2003.
To me, it has its ups and downs. Its positives are that the kids know the songs, and therefore are familiar and might've already used the song in an audition or just sang the song to themselves at one point.
The definite downside is that it might be hard to prevent kids from (intentionally or not) "borrowing" the voices and dance steps of their favorite stars. Since they're so familiar with modern songs, they've probably seen the videos 50+ times and heard the audio hundreds more, and the "right" way to do the song is probably stuck in their brain. Thus, it could weaken the contest.
What do you think?
