In the seventh season of Fox’s singing sensation American Idol, pop superstar Mariah Carey was a mentor.  She had warm and caring advice for the contestants that took on her songs and it brought up some of the most stirring and emotional performances that Idol has ever produced, including a slowed-down version, with a plethora of stringed instruments, of “Always Be My Baby” by winner David Cook.  When it was announced Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler would not be back to create television magic with Randy Jackson and Ryan Seacrest, the world was holding their breath and on pins and needles to see who would be joining them.

Its out the with the old and in with the new at American Idol.  The “diva” chair once held by Paula Abdul, Kara DioGuardi and most recently by Jennifer Lopez will be occupied by Mariah Carey.

The Borowski Spin

This week, our ever-ongoing quest for the best new and upcoming Dance songs yields four terrific new releases.

 

“Dance Again” – Jennifer Lopez feat. Pitbull

Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a Summer smash.  All of 2011, you couldn’t escape the collaboration of J-Lo and Pitbull on their insanely catchy “On The Floor.”  Now they’re back with a rematch that’s less a sequel to that hit and far more reminiscent of J-Lo’s jubilant  throw-down “Alive” from exactly a decade ago. Two quibbles: musically, the verse melody is so similar to Kylie’s “Disco Down” I’m tempted to label it “Reductive.”  And the opening “whooo”s are an almost exact replication of the Manhattan Clique mix of Gaga’s “Boys Boys Boys.” But none of this diminishes our enthusiasm. Or our prediction: get ready to hear this anthem all Summer long.  Now if she’d release the full version of her “I’ve Got The Music In Me” remake from her Kohl’s commercial…
