So this morning’s FOX press release reveals some interesting information about next week’s show…
Harry Connick Jr. will not only mentor the contestants, he will also “arrange the songs, write the orchestrations” and perform on the results show. He will be the first mentor to do all of those things.
I have to say that I don’t like that since it probably means the contestants will have to stick close to the original instead of making the songs their own.
And what will the judges say when they can’t criticize them for not making it their own? Just criticize Harry?
One other thing from the release. Lady Gaga will perform during next week’s show. She’ll be doing her new single, “Alejandro.” But that performance will be on tape (The press release doesn’t say that. I just know that.).
Sinatra and Gaga. Interesting combo, no?
