Hello Housemates,

As many of you maybe aware, the "Idol" phenomenon has swept the world. And this week, the Big Brother house will be having it's own Idol contest. This means, yes, each housemate will have to get up and take the stage to perform a song. The song has to be a previously published piece of music, so I can judge how the housemate will perform it. But remember it's not just about the singing or music, your overall performance will be judged, meaning your look, personality etc...

Here's how you compete:

Name:
Song:
(A copy of the lyrics MUST be posted with it)
Genre:
(The genre can be changed, if the housemate wishes to sing another version of the song.)
Original performer of the song:
(I may need to download and listen to the original song, so this will help. If I can't find it on Kazaa, for example, you may need to help me find this.)
Costumes:
(This can be a description or photos)
Why you think this housemate will perform this song well:
(Since I can't actually see the performance, this is where you impress, you need to say how they perform, and how they will get the audience involved etc...)

Song: S.O.B.
you say i was so (giving)?
darling do you forgive me
i went out on a limb
cause i needed to be

near the fireflies flying high above me
then i hit the sky and it fell down on me

you said it wasn't sharp but i cut my finger
you said it just wouldn't burn and i scarred my face

you know i bite my nails my skin and my fingers
and i've heard that's my liver my nerves and my brain
i said i just like to bite on my f**in fingers
do you have another intelligent answer for me today

you said it wasn't sharp but i cut my finger
you said it just wouldn't burn and i scarred my face
you said it just wasn't? when it fell down on me
well i'm just a son of a b*tch no matter what you say

i lost my trust in you
you were dangerous and scary
and you poisoned me with the fruits everyone was intrigued by
and i finally got buried

you said i won't forget and i don't remember and
you said i'm something i'm not and i fell on my face
you said i wouldn't rot but worms are crawling on me
i'm just a son of a b*tch no matter what you say
i'm just a son of a b*tch no matter what you say

Genre: Same as original

Real Singer: Lisa Marie Presley

Coustom: All American Eagle Clothing

Why did he sing this song: Really I think it is self explanitory (lol) but he loves Elvis and Lisa Marie

Song: Bring Me to Life
Genre:Rock
Original performer of the song:Evanescence
Costumes:Goth clothes
Lyrics:
how can you see into my eyes like open doors
leading you down into my core
where I’ve become so numb without a soul my spirit sleeping somewhere cold
until you find it there and lead it back home

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
bid my blood to run
(I can’t wake up)
before I come undone
(Save me)
save me from the nothing I’ve become

now that I know what I’m without
you can't just leave me
breathe into me and make me real
bring me to life

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
bid my blood to run
(I can’t wake up)
before I come undone
(Save me)
save me from the nothing I’ve become

frozen inside without your touch without your love darling only you are the life among the dead

all this time I can't believe I couldn't see
kept in the dark but you were there in front of me
I’ve been sleeping a thousand years it seems
got to open my eyes to everything
without a thought without a voice without a soul
don't let me die here
there must be something more
bring me to life

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
bid my blood to run
(I can’t wake up)
before I come undone
(Save me)
save me from the nothing I’ve become

(Bring me to life)
I’ve been living a lie, there’s nothing inside
(Bring me to life)

Name: Jelena Dokic
Song: Papa Don't Preach
Genre: Rock
Original Performer of the Song: Madonna
Lyrics:

Papa I know you're going to be upset
'Cause I was always your little girl
But you should know by now
I'm not a baby

You always taught me right from wrong
I need your help, daddy please be strong
I may be young at heart
But I know what I'm saying

The one you warned me all about
The one you said I could do without
We're in an awful mess, and I don't mean maybe - please

Chorus:

Papa don't preach, I'm in trouble deep
Papa don't preach, I've been losing sleep
But I made up my mind, I'm keeping my baby, oh
I'm gonna keep my baby, mmm...

He says that he's going to marry me
We can raise a little family
Maybe we'll be all right
It's a sacrifice

But my friends keep telling me to give it up
Saying I'm too young, I ought to live it up
What I need right now is some good advice, please

(chorus)

Daddy, daddy if you could only see
Just how good he's been treating me
You'd give us your blessing right now
'Cause we are in love, we are in love, so please

(chorus)

Papa don't preach, I'm in trouble deep
Papa don't preach, I've been losing sleep
(repeat)

Oh, I'm gonna keep my baby, ooh
Don't you stop loving me daddy
I know, I'm keeping my baby

Costume:

A stunning, Roberto Cavalli dress which Jelena describes as encapsulation "the hard edge of rock and still a feminine elegance"



Her necklace/choker



Her earrings



Why you think this housemate will perform this song well/Performance Run-Down:

Jelena walked out on stage, stunning in a Roberto Cavalli creation matched with stunning jewellery. The housemates all hushed and the lights dimmed, waiting in anticipation for Jelena to begin. Jelena began slowly, softly but soon as the song progressed picked it up in intensity. She sang with her heart, and entertained the housemates. Showing that she can dance, as well as play tennis Jelena shook her booty all around the floor and continued to sing with all she had. The final chorus was the pinnacle of the song, as Jelena belted it out as loud as she could reducing herself and the housemates to tears.
Asked afterwards to explain her choice of song and her performance, Jelena had this to say:

I chose this song because I can relate to it. Everyone knows about my father and the strains in our relationships, but what they don't see outside of what he does is that there is a real emotional attachment that I hold for my father. I mean people don't seemo understand the strong bond between a father and a daughter and I chose this song because it most aptly described what has been going on in my life the past year or so. I think that if you're going to perform, it's integral to be able to feel and udnerstand the song. You have to mean what you're singing, otherwise the crowd can see that it isn't sincere and honest. I value those qualities above all else and I think that my choice of this song stayed true to those qualities, as well as to myself. I think I performed well and entertained everyone, I mean it got really emotional at the end and I think that its a tremendous sort of reward when you know you've moved your audience. I think it's important not to be stagnant and sort of just stand lifeless on the stage, so I just tried to go out there, sing from my heart and perform as best as I could. I wouldn't change that performance for the world"

Name: Martina Hingis
Song: "Bathwater"
Genre: Alternative
Original performer of the song: No Doubt
Lyrics:

Oh yes I'm guilty
You and your museum of lovers
The precious collection you've housed in your covers
My simpleness threatened by my own admission

And the bags are much too heavy
In my insecure condition
My pregnant mind is fat full with envy again

But I still love to wash in your old bathwater
Love to think that you couldn't love another
I can't help it...you're my kind of man

Wanted and adored by attractive women
Bountiful selection at your discretion
I know I'm diving into my own destruction

So why do we choose the boys that are naughty?
I don't fit in so why do you want me?
And I know I can't tame you...but I just keep trying

'Cause I love to wash in your old bathwater
Love to think that you couldn't love another
I'm on your list with all your other women
But I still love to wash in your old bathwater
You make me feel like I couldn't love another
I can't help it...you're my kind of man

Why do the good girls always want the bad boys?

So I pacify problems with kisses and cuddles
Diligently doubtful through all kinds of trouble
Then I find myself choking on all my contradictions

'Cause I still love to wash in your old bathwater
Love to think that you couldn't love another
Share a toothbrush...you're my kind of man
I still love to wash in your old bathwater
Make me feel like I couldn't love another
I can't help it...you're my kind of man

No I can't help myself
I can't help myself
I still love to wash in your old bathwater



Costume:

Tight pink mini skirt, complete with equally tight white strapless tube top. Black high heels.
Why you think this housemate will perform this song well:

Martina walked out onto stage in her tight white and pink outfit, strutting her stuff. Her hair was crimped and frizzy, giving her a Courtney Love, sheek look. When the band started to play, the tv-like stage tiles turned on and showed picturesque blue rippling water. Pink and Red spotlights turned on and focused on the stage, as the other lights faded. Martina grabbed the microphone and sang in a sultry seductive voice as the music played behind her. The singing was amazing, but Martina's attitude was even better. She strutted around the stage in her heels and sung the lyrics perfectly. The spotlights and screens around her made the atmosphere complete, and put all the house guests in a great mood.


"I really love this song. The lyrics are sincere but almost cynical at the same time. It's just a lot of fun, and I had a blast performing it on stage. The house guests seemed like they enjoyed it, so I'm happy. I'm a bug No Doubt fan so I knew I wanted to sing this song right away. Hopefully it'll be enough to let me knab HOH this week."

Name:

Marat Safin

Song:

Boys Of Summer

Genre:

Rock Ballad

Original performer of the song:

Don Henley

Costumes:

Surfboard, boardies (no undies!), sunnies, tanning oil, but otherwise topless.

Why you think this housemate will perform this song well:

Because Marat is a boy and he plays six months of year in summer weather. The song is about summer love. It does not last a long time. Marat meets lots of beautiful women but cannot date them for a long time. He knows about missed opportunities but cannot help it because he has to go away again. He knows all too well about summer love.

Boys Of Summer

Nobody on the road
Nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air
The summer's out of reach
Empty lake, empty streets
The sun goes down alone
I'm drivin' by your house
Though I know you're not home

But I can see you
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
You got your hair combed back
And sunglasses on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you
Will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I never will forget those nights
I wonder if it was a dream
Remember how you made me crazy
Remember how I made you scream
Now I don't understand what
Happened to our love
But babe, I'm gonna get you back
I'm gonna show you what I'm made of

I can see you
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
I see you walkin' real slow and
You're smilin' at everyone
I can tell you my love for you
Will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

Out on the road today
I saw a Dead Head sticker on a cadillac
A little voice inside my head said
"Don't look back. You can never look back"
I thought I knew what love was
What did I know?
Those days are gone forever
I should just let them go but

I can see you
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
You got your hair slicked back
And sunglasses on, baby
I can tell you my love for you
Will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone
I can see you
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
I see you walkin' real slow and
You're smilin' at everyone
I can tell you my love for you
Will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

Song Title: Hollywood
Genre: Pop
Original Performer: Madonna
Costume:red tank, white jean shorts, black sunglasses

Lyrics:

Everybody comes to Hollywood
They wanna make it in the neighborhood
They like the smell of it in Hollywood
How could it hurt you when it looks so good?

Chorus:

Shine your light now
This time it's got to be good
You get it right now, yeah
'Cause you're in Hollywood

There's something in the air in Hollywood
The sun is shining like you knew it would
You're riding in your car in Hollywood
You got the top down and it feels so good

Everybody comes to Hollywood
They wanna make it in the neighborhood
They like the smell of it in Hollywood
How could it hurt you when it looks so good?

I lost my memory in Hollywood
I've had a million visions, bad and good
There's something in the air in Hollywood
I tried to leave it but I never could

(chorus)

There's something in the air in Hollywood
I've lost my reputation, bad and good
You're riding in your car in Hollywood
You got the top down and it feels so good

Music stations always play the same songs
I'm bored with the concept of right and wrong

Everybody comes to Hollywood
They wanna make it in the neighborhood
They like the smell of it in Hollywood
How could it hurt you when it looks so good?

(chorus)

'Cause you're in Hollywood
'Cause you're in Hollywood
In Hollywood (repeat twice)

(Spoken)
Check it out, this bird has flown

(chorus)

'Cause you're in Hollywood
'Cause you're in Hollywood
In Hollywood (repeat twice)

Push the button
Don't push the button
Trip the station
Change the channel
(repeat three times)


Why Laura Chose this song:

Face it, Laura isn't the most glamours player on tour....she isn't the most outspoken player, nor is she in the top 10. In fact, many tennis fans despise Laura---she's too boring, non expressive etc.

Laura chose this song, because it represents her attitude of the wta tour and her place in it. Her childhood dreams were to attend Stanford University, and eventually become a professional tennis player. All of her dreams have come true. She is the only player on Big Brother who has attended college, and one of only a few talented college females to reach the top 30 on tour!

So what's the statement? She may not have glamour, she may not be the most expressive...but this girl's got what many of you don't have...a college education. She's also got a heck of a lot of talent, and although she may be boring to many, she's still makin lots of money. Forget the glamour, forget the hollywood crap..."I am who I am, and lovin' it" so shut the hell up ;)

Sincerely, Laura :p

Song: HER sEYI YAPARIM (= Every Way That I Can)

Baska bir seyin pesinde oldugunu hissediyorum
Kendine uzakta bir yol açiyorsun
Beni sevdigini söylüyorsun ama gözlerini çeviriyorsun
Bos gökyüzüne bakiyorsun
Oysa bunlari geride biraktik, bitti saniyordum, yine en basa döndük
Haydi gel,
Neler olacagini sana göstereyim
Seni sevmeme izin ver
Her seyi yaparim
Beni tekrar sevmeni saglamak için
Her seyi yaparim, tüm sevgimi veririm
Her seyi yaparim, aglarim, ölürüm ve sen tekrar benim olursun
Sikica saril bana, çok güzel
Olmam gerektigi gibi iyi hissediyorum
Ne düsündügünü biliyorum,
Tüm dünya artik hükümsüz
Bana öteki kizlarda ne buldugunu söyle, yanima gel ve bende neyi bulamadigini anlat
Haydi gel, sana özlemini çektigin seyleri vermek istiyorum
Seni sevmeme izin ver
Her seyi yaparim
Beni yeniden sevmen için her yola basvururum
Her seyi yaparim, tüm sevgimi veririm
Her seyi yaparim, aglarim, ölürüm ve yeniden benim olursun
Seni seviyorum
Her dedigini yaparim
Seni arzulamami sagla
Dünyada hiçbir sey
Beni durduramaz hayir efendim
Hayir, hayir, hayir
Her seyi yaparim
Seni yeniden kendime asik edecegim
Her seyi yaparim
Askimi verecegim
Her seyi yaparim, aglarim ölürüm ve seni benim yaparim...

Alexandra Stevenson

Song : "Haunted"
Original Performer : "Poe"
Genre : "Rock"

Costume :


Lyrics :

Ba da pa pa ba da pa pa...
Come here
Pretty please
Can you tell me where I am
You won't you say something
I need to get my bearings
I'm lost
And the shadows keep on changing

And I'm haunted
By the lives that I have loved
And actions I have hated
I'm haunted
By the lives that wove the web
Inside my haunted head

Ba da pa pa ba da pa pa..

Don't cry,
There's always a way
Here in November in this house of leaves
We'll pray
Please, I know it's hard to believe
To see a perfect forest
Through so many splintered trees
You and me
And these shadows keep on changing

And I'm haunted
By the lives that I have loved
And actions I have hated
I'm haunted
By the promises I've made
And others I have broken

I'm haunted
By the lives that wove the web
Inside my haunted head

Hallways... always
I'll always love you
I'll always need you
I'll always want you

And I will always miss you

Ba da pa pa ba da pa pa...

Come here
No I won't say please
One more look at the ghost
Before I'm gonna make it leave
Come here
I've got the pieces here
Time to gather up the splinters
Build a casket for my tears

I'm haunted
(By the lives that I have loved)
I'm haunted
(By the promises I've made)
I'm haunted
By the hallways in this tiny room
The echos there of me and you
The voices that are carrying this tune

Ba da pa pa...



Why you think I will perform this song well:

Alex was shown with a guitar, looking up. She also had a band following during the song. The stage that included a creepy background with dark trees and some dry leaves on the ground, and a weak yellow light giving the impression they were performing at night in a haunted forest. At the start of the song, the "ba da pa pa.." Alex was the only thing on the stage. Behind her, nothing had a light. Everything dark and black. No one knew how well done was the whole scenario. As she really started to sang the first words of the song and the drums got heavier, the whole band was shown with the yellow light, for a few seconds then it faded to a deep purple, but the weak yellow light was there. Alex was singing the song, and the leaves were floating in the stage by the help of some ventilators installed at some strategical places on stage, and it gave the song and the performance a great reaction by the others housemates. They were all impressed by the quality of the show and the special effects. At 2nd chorus, the whole lights were shining the stage, and a ray of light fell down in the middle of the stage, scaring the housemates (but everything was part of the show) and the tree intentionally caught fire, and the purple light faded into a deep red/orange illumination. And Alex giving and singin all that she could for the song. They were all impressed by the quality of her voice, and how focused she was at the song. The band also were a great show. In the last part of the song, Alex stopped playing the guitars and then she really got all mad and crazy, jumping and hitting the floor, really acting, making a sad/angry looking face showing all her emotions as the song got faster and more aggressive, and also the fake wind gave an incredible sensation here. And the band also were excited really inspired. In the last 'ba da pa pa's" the band slowly stop from playing all the instruments, and only a dishevelled and wet Alex, who lied down, crawled and everything, were on her knees and sang the last "ba da pa pa's" of the song.. like it was some sort of a prayer... and the red light shining her, faded to black putting an end at this incredible presentation...

(eer.. sorry about my poor english.. i've tried my hard tho' :p )
