Let's Get Loud

"Your Face Sounds Familiar" is truly a global phenomenon. This video is from the Mongolian version of the show:

 

I believe Temuujin was the runner-up in the series.

There are other femulation videos for this performer, including Cher, TKA, and Sarah Brightman

I liked this J-Lo performance the best.

After watching several other videos from this program, I wonder if they allowed the performers to record their singing and then lipsynch to it? At least one singer was not matching lip movements to the lyrics and others were changing vocal range quite readily. Were they allowed to use electronic assistance?

Courtney Act

Courtney is a natural Cover Gurl. She's gorgeous:



I've seen a number of performers wear that red suit for various singing television shows. None look as feminine as Courtney Act.

This reel features Courtney in some dresses:

Ada Vox American Idol

I don't watch American Idol, but the most recent season featured a drag queen named Ada Vox. There are numerous videos on youtube featuring her covering various pop songs. This one is good:



The voice is excellent.

Singer: Lorelei Lee

This is very good -- a duet featuring a single artist! Lorelei is singing Two Little Girls from Little Rock from the classic film Gentleman Prefer Blondes.



For a lot more of artist Topher Yandell, check out this 75 minute live performance video.

Lorelei was previously featured here in August 2010.

More Janek

A little over a month ago, I drew your attention to Janek Traczyk of Twoja Twarz Brzmi Znajomo.

This post includes two newer videos. In the first, Janek performs as Gloria Gaynor. As I've said before, the blackface seems inappropriate. Still, the singing is in English.

 

 In this clip, he performs as Sława Przybylska.

Singer: Ziandzha – 'Smashed into you' –

This video is from a recent Blind Audition on The Voice of Ukraine. Ziandzha/Sianga is a singer formerly known as Boris April. She's now apparently Ann (Anya?) April. Did I first blog about her in September 2012?

 

 Frankly, the voice seems dubbed in that video -- not live.

This is Sianga performing a duet -- or perhaps it is a singing duel. Both songs are in English, which I like. Some of her recent performance videos are not in English.

 

 Great legs!

And  Mamma Mia!

I'm not sure if any of the Instagram accounts are really hers. But you can find new and old pictures there.

Singer: Leona Winter

Leona Winter is a lovely and talented entertainer. Enjoy some new video footage of the singer performing old standards:

 




She's on the latest version of The Switch.

In 2017, she represented Europe in the Miss Continental pageants. YouTube has videos of the gowns, swimwear, etc.

At this show last December, James performed "Proud Mary." I cannot find video, just these pictures:
