Default As Long As You Follow on American Idol

One of the contestants on the April 15 episode of American Idol, Laci Kaye Booth, sang As Long As You Follow.

First, I was shocked when the song began and I realized what song it was. Second, it was awful, as she incorporated what I can only describe as yodeling in the performance. I have no idea if it's on YouTube but nonetheless, it is worth checking out.

In respect to the contestant, it is a hard song to sing.

Thought it was okay. She has an interesting voice- though I want her to have a good cough. I don't think she's learnt to properly harness her unique singing voice yet.
Is ALAYF really difficult to sing????

Thanks for posting the link, FuzzyPlum.

I don't know that the song is complex, but it has a lot of harmony, which would certainly make it more challenging for one person to sing. Even though I didn't care for the performance, I was thrilled to see this gem get some airplay.

LMAO
You must have jumped out of your seat.

I don't think she did such a bad job. It was pretty good

I hope someone sent it to Christine

The performance is meh but Iím loving that this song is getting any notice after all of these years. Christine was absolutely on fire in the late 80ís.

Ditto to that. I love this song and always thought what it would have been if it was produced by Lindsey and was performed with the 5. With that said I love the 1988 version.

This was definitely Laci's weakest performance....and the arrangement just didn't work.
The original is the one great FM that got away.....should have been a HUGE hit in '88!

Just watched. I thought she did a fine job. I mean, NO ONE sounds like Christine, so you couldn't expect that.

I also missed Rick's guitar playing and solo.
