American Idol Winners – Performances

Entre junho e janeiro, as notícias se voltam para a vida pós-Idol dos candidatos da oitava edição. A única coisa que a gente sabe é, claro, o winner single. “No Boundaries” foi co-escrita pela quarta jurada do programa, Kara DioGuardi, juntamente com os compositores Cathy Dennis e Mitch Allen. A canção provavelmente estará no álbum do ganhador desta temporada, dependendo da aceitação da música pelos fãs.
Aproveitando o tema, que tal fazer uma recapitulação sobre todos os winner singles, desde o AI1 até a canção desse ano?

Curiosidades:

- O único winner single a não entrar na tracklist do cd oficial de um Idol foi “Do I Make You Proud” do Taylor Hicks;
- “This Is My Now” é uma faixa bonus do cd de estreia da Jordin Sparks, assim como “Time Of My Life” no álbum de David Cook. Ambos foram músicas escolhidas pelo público em votação no site do programa;
- No American Idol 2 e 5, os winner singles foram diferentes para os finalistas do Top 2;
- O winner single do Ruben Studdard, “Flying Without Wings”, é uma regravação do grupo irlandês Westlife;

Season 8: Kris Allen “No Boundaries”

Seconds, hours, so many days
You know what you want but how long can you wait?
Every moment last forever
When you feel you’ve lost your way
What if my chances were already gone
I started believing that I could be wrong
But you gave me one good reason
To fight and never walk away

So here I am, still holding on!

CHORUS
With every step you climb another mountain
Every breath, it’s harder to believe
You’ll make it through the pain
Weather the hurricanes
To get to that one thing

Just when you think the road is going nowhere
Just when you almost gave up on your dreams
They take you by the hand and show you that you can
There are no boundaries
There are no boundaries

I fought to the limit to stand on the edge
What if today is as good as it gets
Don’t know where the future’s heading
Nothing’s gonna bring me down
I’ve jumped every bridge and I’ve run every lie
I risked being safe but I always knew why
I always knew why

So here I am, still holding on

CHORUS

You can go higher
You can go deeper
There are no boundaries
Above and beneath you
Break every rule ’cause there’s nothing between you
and your dreams
