Mika is preparing a surprise for Jacob.

He asks if Jacob know the song "Heros". Then when the boy goes to find a paper to take notes Mika explains to others (in secret)

that he will create a huge organ ( the instrument) on the stage and Jacob will play on it.

The others plus a a 12 person gospel choir will surround him and sing together. All dressed in black caps with hoods on their heads.

 

 

So there will be at least one Mika song!!!!! Or it'a about David Bowie's "Heroes"?

 

The way he asks in the beginning "Who knows Heroes?", I'd think he talks about Bowie's song. Also the picture of Jacob, if that's his performance for the song, that doesn't fit to Mika's Heroes. Anyway, we'll see... Mika likes to surprise everyone, lol! :teehee:

Deb and me speculating it will be Heroes by Mika, but you’re right, it might as well be the Bowie song. Also, I don’t think Mika expects the candidates to know “his” Heroes songs, since the Bowie song kind of is a classic. But like you said: who knows! He likes to surprise! 
 

Going to throw it out there: what if he makes a medley of both!?

I was rewatching on YouTube Bowie's song and Mika's symphonic version.

Actually in both songs the gospel choir can make a nice background.

I agree, that’s why I was throwing crazy things out there ☺️ But it’s also my wishful thinking

Debate is over: it’s Bowie 😉he almost has a fit when no one knew the song at all 😂


The whole concept is about freedom!

 

they will also sing:

Born this way from Gaga

Heroes from Bowie

à cause des garçons de Yelle

Djadja from Ana Nakamura

small town boy from Bronski Beat

can’t help falling in love from Elvis

 

it’s fascinating all he got to see all of the students for who they really are...

 

gonna be another great moment!

Oh yes, that's made my day! Ok now I really can't wait!

Really, none of them knew it? Poor Mika! Having just rewatched the clip of XFactor with Luca claiming he didn't know who Elvis was, I can imagine how that went down. 😂

Thanks, Cath! The '80s girl in me is so happy -- can't tell you how much I love Bronski Beat and the memories it evokes!

 

And of course Bowie is one of my Big 3. :thumb_yello:

 

Anything by Elvis is always welcome and same for Gaga. The only thing I don't know is Djadja? But in Mika's capable hands I'm sure it's going to be amazing!

Saw some bits on Twitter, can’t wait to watch the whole episode. But I thought it was going to be flamboyant and extravagant and well, I don’t think we’ll be disappointed 😆

By the way the candidates have incredible voices! They will really shine on Sunday. Hopefully Mika will join them in a song or two.

OMG! What they are preparing!!!!!

And I love watching them all working, co-working, inventing themselves and really having fun!!!!!

And Mika admiring their talents - I think it's a wonderful power for the students.

 

I must say that this program is so different to what I've seen on TV.

It's not a competition it's a wonderful school - of singing, acting but of life as well.

 

Yesterday I'va watch the class with Laura Fabien. And it was so spiritual. She cares about these young guys.

And they are so open for changes.

I am so happy that Mika is in this show too. Because we can learn as well.

:fangurl: Love this song! Definitely my fave Gaga song.

Elvis. :wub2: I hope Mika sings that one. I loved it when he sang Wooden Heart at the Xmas gig!

The song by Yelle, I probably heard it when she was Mika's support act in 2007, but can't remember. Generally her music is too electronic for my liking, but she has a few fun ones.

 

Smalltown Boy, of course I know it, it's an 80s classic that gets still played at clubs - but I just looked up the lyrics for the first time, never realized their meaning before. Most of the English songs I liked as a kid/teen, I only liked for the music, because I didn't understand the lyrics - and still it sometimes happens to me now that I hear an old song that I can sing along to but suddenly realize the meaning of the text. I think that's only partly because of the foreign language though, but same as with 'Lollipop', as a kid you just don't realize what it means, and if you never look it up / get told, it might take a long time til you do.

 

I also knew Bowie's Heroes, but more like "ah yes, I've heard that before, and I suppose it's Bowie, sounds like it...", but tbh Bowie never was one of my faves, so I'm not too familiar with his discography. I also just looked up the meaning of this song, and it's connected with the fall of the Berlin wall, that's quite interesting. Makes a lot of sense connected with the topic of "freedom".

 

Djadja also is the only song in this list that I never heard... and I'm not too convinced of it, but anyway t4p Anna! :lol:

Same for me. I liked his personality but never been a fan of his songs.

We used to get this one playing on radios non stop for months, over and over again, such an annoying song :aah:

After we have seen the show, I am sure Mika will have shown us a different side of the song that will speak more to us - or not, can go both ways 🤣

But that is Mika’s magic! I’m looking forward to it very much.

Me too! I'm sure that no matter how this new version will be, it can't be more annoying that the original one :teehee:
