and it was Broadway week,what would you sing?

I'd do "Gimme, Gimme". And I'd just blow the audience away!!!

Or I'd do "Out Tonight", and, even though I would do a GREAT job (of course), the judges would say that it wasn't a good choice, because I'm going against the wholesome, good-girl image I've painted for myself.

I would save "My Strongest Suit" for a possible Elton John week.

Anyone????

(let me add that I can't sing to save my life, so this is pure, pure, pure fantasy)

Hummm...I've already said I wouldn't even want to do this show but if this IS a fantasy and all things being equal I know I couldn't do, "Half a Moment" like I'd like to and I couldn't do anything from Broadway because they don't seem to like it soooo I'd hit'em with a Meat Loaf song--"Wasted Youth" or "Objects in the Rearview Mirror (Appear Closer Than They Are)" or "I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)" and let her rip!

I'd say What I Did For Love...
I had a dream... I dreamed it for you June... It wasn't for me Herbie... And if it wasn't for me, then where would you be, Miss. Gypsy Rose Lee?

Hmm...that's an interesting question. I would probably do my rendition of "Some People". It would be a very good song for a competition like that.

Cheers,

I would go with "The Impossible Dream". That would definitely win them over- hehe.

I'd wanna give a shot at Gimme Gimme, cause if you can nail that song, you've won them over. (Not that I could sing that song, haha)
