Do you remember the amazing rendition of The Jackson Five’s "I Want You Back" by Miss South Carolina, Ali Rogers, at Miss America? Amazing, right? I couldn’t help but tap my foot and wiggle to the beat. She had so much fun with it, and that was the key to her success in Talent. Although she did not walk away with the crown, she left an incredible impression on the crowd and the judges. On the other hand, Lexie Madden, Miss Wyoming, performed a much more serious composition. It too was beautiful, but it has been suggested by pianoworld.com, that more upbeat tunes are more likely to be crowd pleasers when it comes to piano talent. By providing you with some winning pageant song ideas, we hope you win your next talent competition. I myself am not a piano player, but I have always admired those who are able to lure those beautiful notes out of the grand instrument. It is truly an art. If you are gifted with the ability to play the piano, then you know that it is important to entertain the audience while displaying your technical ability. The following songs enable you to do just that. • Let it Be by The Beatles- This is not necessarily upbeat, but the tune will most likely be fairly familiar to audience members. • Clocks by Coldplay- This song has a lot of repetition. It is an oldie but goody. • Walking in Memphis by Marc Cohn- This has an almost nostalgic sound to it and tends to entrance the audience when played with passion. • Fantasie Impromptu by Chopin- This is extremely advanced, but is also extremely impressive when executed properly. •Fallin’ by Alicia Keys- This is a popular and more modern piano piece that can be mastered fairly quickly. It requires a certain level of attitude when played, however. The pageant talent of piano playing is often overlooked and underrated, but by adding your own flare and engaging the audience, this talent can easily take you to the top! Again, I am not an expert on the piano, so let me know your thoughts on the list and feel free to add to it! And remember friends, always B#!
