There must be something in the stars with the year 2008. Not just Cyndi Lauper, Paula Abdul and SMiLe.dk, but Lara Fabian has decided it’s time to sing again. New classical-inspired pop album is to be released by the end of the year. The album is recorded entirely in Qubec and as for song choice, quoting Fabian; “ I’ve never sung these kinds of songs, certainly not in an entire album and not in this kind of arrangement…” I pray that it won’t be one of those techno-disco albums… We already have Madonna, Kylie and Britney.
A fan meet & greet is set to be held in Belgium in October and then Paris.
Below is a clip of Fabian performing Je Suis Malade live
I’m not saying that Paula Abdul’s come back song/video is bad. Yet a judge on American Idol would say, “Dance like there’s no tomorrow” lacks a certain WOW factor. The singing is alright, the choreography is good, but it’s not sizzling hot. It probably gonna do alright in terms of record sales and charts but I don’t see this going to the top. And Randy? Oh please, he just didn’t fit. I’m sure this would have done a lot better if it’s released in the 90’s though.
To be brief, it’s not bad. But one would expect a lot more as she’s now a judge on American Idol. This classic Paula Abdul is not bad, but she’s just giving us what she has been offering since the 90’s.
