Bellas, set Your DVR. Tell the boss you’re taking a personal day! If you’re a big fan of the original female singing group, big fabulous hair, and icons who have earned the title with sweat and talent…you need to see Diana Ross on Oprah this Friday.
And it won’t just be Miss Ross. According to Detroit News, it’s gonna be the whole Ross family including even Diana’s first grandson. The Oprah appearance will launch Diana’s Spring tour, and Diana will be doing her first television performance in four years.
Anyone who has been reading this here blog since day one KNOWS what I’m gonna be doing on Friday! Paying homage to the woman who ignited a love of big hair in this Trini girl’s heart.
Which song will Diana do on Oprah? I can only imagine! But here are my top five hopes.
I’m Coming Out
This would be a no brainer. Diana doing I’m Coming Out on Oprah would shut it DOWN. It’s more than a song, it’s an anthem. And as you can see from this performance, Diana loves singing it and can tell the effect it has on the audience.
Do You Know?
OMG. If Diana blesses the microphone with those seven magical words, please know there will be tears a-flowing here in Chicago. Do You Know Where You’re Going To is the quintessential Diana Ross solo song, the theme from Mahogany, everything.com.
Diana’s version of the Charlie Chaplin classic is tender and lovely, and seeing as it was Michael Jackson’s favorite song, Diana singing this would be incredibly poignant and special. An unlikely choice, but one can wish.
Maybe Diana will switch it up and take us back to those Studio 54 days. Upside Down will get Oprah’s audience up and smiling, and who doesn’t love watching Oprah dance and sing along in the crowd?
If Diana reaches back into The Supremes material, I hope she sings Reflections. The lyrics speak to so many, and it’d make for a truly majestic return to the televised stage.
Those are my top 5 picks for songs I wish Diana would do on Friday’s Oprah. No matter WHAT she does, I know I’m gonna love it. What are you hoping to hear?
