That would make sense, because the song is from the movie Maleficent. I really enjoyed that movie. I did think that bird-man was much more appealing than the One Direction-esque prince charming. LOL I was actually glad he didn't wake her up; I wouldn't have woken up, either! LOL!!
Oh, I hope they're better soon! Is it this coming Sat., or is it the next that they perform?
Oh yes, these live action fairytale stories tend to be a bit different, more dark, than the cartoons we grew up with. I actually like it that way! I enjoyed the Snow White and the Huntsman, too, but I especially liked Maleficent. This movie shows her story from the beginning, when she started out as a good and powerful fairy, and how the king betrayed her years ago by taking away her wings, her source of power. That's the reason she becomes evil and curses his daughter. But when she gets to know Aurora, she regrets it. I really liked the ending, too... I think it's the only Angelina Jolie movie I've ever seen! LOL Here's the trailer with Once Upon a Dream. I actually find it more effective in that lower voice, because it sounds like Maleficent herself singing it (it might really be the actress singing it). I saw the trailer for Cinderella, and it looks nice, but so far it doesn't look dark enough for my liking! LOL I still want to see it, though. Cate Blanchett is playing the evil stepmother! And I'm hoping Beauty and the Beast isn't a musical.
Here's the trailer set to Once Upon a Dream.. not as lovely as the twins', but the words are easier to hear:
I don't think the twins will be on this Saturday but two opera singers will be. Karl Loxley and Lucy O'Byrne. IMHO Lucy is a far better singer but after what happened to Annelies, anything is possible ! In next week's Radio Times Will.I.am (or however he spells his name!) says he's pitted them against each other. He thinks it will be "the best battle ever!" We'll see. It means of course that one will be out of the show, unless another judge steals the loser. This of course doesn't affect CR since they are on Ricky's team. No news yet on who they will have to face.
Karly Loxley was recommended to me to follow on twitter, so I checked out his audition. I'm sorry, but I was less than impressed. He sang it well, but the voice was just not up to par with greats who've done it before him. These days, I listen to Sarah Brightman's version, anyway, but obviously Pavorotti's voice is far, far superior, not to mention Andrea Bocelli (but I prefer Pavorotti).
I'll have to check out Lucy O'Byrne.
Here's the music video for Once Upon a Dream, by Lana Del Rey. It's easy to imagine it's Maleficent singing it though.
