I hope this is OK. Husband and I always banter on about "well, I would audition with _____" or, "I can't stand how many people sing ____" "Can't they be more origional" etc.. I know they have a list of songs to choose from once they make it to Hollywood.. But I also know the list is Hundreds of songs! And if they wanted to do something badly enough that was not on the list, it could be possible for AI to get the rights to use it.. Plus, when you first audition you can do anything you want.
I was thinking it would be fun to post what we would sing each week, if we were on the show... Especially in the upcoming Theme weeks.
If I had auditioned: I would have sung the Arnold Mcculler version of Freebird. I would definately use a week to do "Into the West" By Annie Lennox. That's one of my dreams. To someday have the guts to sing that song publicly.
