    So my schools talent show is in 18~ days and it's a pretty big deal this year, they're doing loads of decorating stuff and hyping it up loads. I am singing for it, but the songs I had planned i sort of got bored of / went off of.

    1. Ne yo - so sick - kind of old, although it's a classic
    2. Queen - somebody to love (i went off this one partly because hitting the end notes in falsetto is uh a pain)
    3. John Lennon - Imagine - not up beat enough

    so I was looking for song suggestions from you guys, I know Smogon is full of people who love music, heh. Please keep the reccomendations on rnb, pop, light rock (stuff that appeals to a teenage audience). I need the song to be relatively up beat and not too vocally acrobatic. Preferably well known stuff since that way people can get into it more or whatever.

    thanks~

    Whatever the circumstances, DO NOT perform a Justin Bieber song.

    Anything by Akon would be good.

    I can check my play list I'm listening too right now.

    Alright. The Promise is upbeat, not verbally acrobatic, was in a popular movie in the last ten years, made in England, and anyone who doesn't know it is a soulless douche anyway.

    EDIT: FUCK THAT SHIT sing Maniac. Do it.

    EDIT MORE: If you're not verbally acrobatic enough to do Queen, do David Bowie. Then it's a win win, because he's better anyway.
    Teenagers who don't know shit about real music tend to like Journey as well, at least in America.

    i dont really like akon and his voice is pretty much fake and synthed like hell.

    The only ones I can think of atm are Breakeven by The Script which has tons of falsetto if you don't mind that, but from the OP I'm guessing you do xD.

    Also, And I am telling you I'm not going by Jennifer Hudson, well Jennifer Holliday, but whatever. It's a big diva song, but changing a few words and pulling that off is really nice. It has really nice vocals to it.

    I really like Wait for you by Elliot Yamin too. It's a nice song and the vocals are pretty easy too...for me anyway. Good luck!

    I actually auditioned for my school talent show this past year, but unfortunately I got strep throat the day after so I couldn't participate. -.-

    I suggest you sing 'Never Gonna Give You Up' by Rick Astley.

    oh good idea the script :] i like a lot of their stuff so i'll re download a couple albums and look from there. i'll look into elliot yamin, but i'm not sure about and i'm telling you, since i wanted to do something by a male artist.

    and lol last year i got tonsolitis two days before and couldn't sing either heh. i hope i never get that strep throat thing though, i heard it's really bad for your vocal chords.

    I don't like that many upbeat songs, but since ur looking for one i'll suggest "All Star" by Smash Mouth. I doubt it's the kind of song u r looking for though.

    lol nope =(

    so far i've got these three down as potential songs:
    chris brown - with you (looking most likely)
    the script - man who can't be moved

    i ruled out billie jean after i decided learning to moon dance was too hard :x

    I think 'Rock With You' would be a great song to perform at a talent show. Better if you can dance with it.

    Sing beautiful by Christina Aguilera.

    It's very uplifting and is a great song to demonstrate your vocal talents.

    Man in the mirror by Michael Jackson is such a good song. Kinda uplifting, a little up tempo. Maybe?

    Also, with you by chris brown is a good choice, but the chorus can get hella annoying, so take that as you will. I like superhuman and so cold, both by chris brown. =)

    And the strep throat, I'm not sure if it really affects your vocal chords because I haven't noticed a differnce...thank god!

    Lol at JB wannabe...dude looks like a ladeh?

    If you want to do something by Ne Yo, IMO "Miss Independent" is superior to "So Sick", and it's probably easier to sing.

    this has my vote!

    what makes you think you wouldn't enjoy singing it?

    edit: how's about a medley?

    Personally I would suggest something like Wonderwall by Oasis. Everyone knows that song, and a lot of people like it. (And it doesn't suck like their new stuff). Maybe some Arctic Monkeys.

    The Scripst is alright, but it was a little overplayed. And the message is a little stalkerish.

    If you want an upbeat song I would suggest Hey Soul Sister by Train. Or you can do And Your Bird Can Sing by The Beatles. Both of them cheer up my day and the lyrics aren't very hard.

    I HIGHLY recommend this one:
    Led Zeppelin - Ramble On
    How can you not want to sing about "Gollum, the evil one?" The vocals might be hard though, but you can change up the melody a bit.
