On American Idol tonight, Lakisha Jones chose to sing Diamonds Are Forever. Surprisingly, she didn't get raves.
Who would choose to sing Diamonds Are Forever?
...and yes, I watch American Idol.

Take yourself outside and have a word with yourself.

I thought she did better than the judges gave her credit for.

Yeah, I watch it too. I rather appreciate the charms of Haley Scarnato - she of the long, luscious legs.
And I'm not surprised at the reaction Lakisha got. There is nowhere to go with that song in terms of making it your own - that is, you can't really alter the arrangement to suit a different vocal style. You just end up sounding like a Shirley Bassey impersonator - which, as wonderful a singer as Lakisha is, is all she came off as. Even the version on David Arnold's James Bond tribute album - performed by a guy of all things - sounds like a Shirley Bassey impersonation.
