Damn wanted disco, guess it could have meant an original song (no reason why not) or that Jay would f*c* it up so Cowell changed

oh :/

in that case, obvious song choices:

Ben - Somebody to Love
Stereo Kicks - Under Pressure
Only the Young - something lame af like Heal the World
Fleur - idk
Jay - Man in the Mirror
Stevi - BoRhap
Lauren - idk probably some quirky take on Beat It or something
Andrea - We Are the Champions
Paul - Don't Stop Me Now

Song choices I'd make:

Ben - Dirty Diana
Stereo Kicks - Radio Ga Ga
Only the Young - They Don't Care About Us
Fleur - Blood on the Dance Floor / Scream
Jay - Stranger in Moscow (or something else a bit slow and forgettable)
Stevi - Bicycle Race (featuring Stevi dressed for the Tour de France and bursting into song after being knocked off of it by another 'racer')
Lauren - Love Never Felt so Good
Andrea - You are Not Alone
Paul - might as well do Another One Bites the Dust, he's going home either way

They Don't Care About Us certainly won't ever be covered. Far too controversial. Bit personal. And Stranger In Moscow is far too personal.

Also doubt

'I am the victim of police brutality, now
I'm tired of bein' the victim of hate
You're rapin' me off my pride
Oh, for God's sake'

Would go down well on prime time Saturday night.

Personally would go...

Ben - Come Together. Would love to see him do Hammer To Fall, though. Dirty Diana would also actually be a good choice.
Fleur - Black or White (Due to the rapping).
Stevi - Fat Bottomed Girls would be a dream. or The Invisible Man rofl.
Jay - Who Wants To Live Forever (His type of slow paced song).
Only The Young - We Will Rock You.
Andrea - Yeah, You Are Not Alone would suit him. Would be able to hit the high note(s).
Stereo Kicks - Radio Ga Ga sounds alright for them. Just let the black haired kid sing throughout.
Lauren - Somebody To Love.
Paul - (Whatever). Laugh if he did actually do Another One Bites The Dust, then went home.

Decent replacement and I was gonna tweet Mark saying 'Queen plz' just before this was announced but Disco was one of the best weeks last year with Chic's performance so I'm disappointed

The good news though is he confirmed the classic Big Band Week to someone else as being the week after next so

I swear if Andrea gets 'you are not alone' - one of my favorite songs of all time he would butcher it so much

Somebody could sing 'There Must Be More To Life Than This' seeing as though it's MJ vs Queen and that song featured/will be featuring MJ and Freddie Mercury. Which I assume is why this whole thing came about.

The Supremes also had Diana Ross. It's just no contest. She alone is better than all members of The Spice Girls and Girls Aloud put together. That is no exaggeration either.
