The story behind the song:
Each time we write/arrange a tune we take a journey. We have to admitâ€”this journey took us a lot further than we expected. Retracing our steps reveals several factors that made this a reality. As we started arranging it we had serious writer’s block. Perhaps some of the worst we’ve ever had. In fact, one day instead of writing we went around the entire studio with a can of WD-40 and coated every piece of metal to ensure that we were a squeak-free studio. Then on a whim we decided to back away and take an entirely new approach to the songâ€”an African approach. It may seem random in retrospect, but at the time it was an exciting way to restart the arrangement. It was working, but our journey still was on foot until we called in Alex Boye, one of the most talented people we’ve ever met. Alex has this contagious energy that gave new life to the song and to us. He sings the tune in 4 different languages: Swahili, English, Yoruba (his mother’s native language), and Alex’s own African “scat” (we’ll call it…Scafrican) =) Most of the words you hear are translated from the lyrics in the original Coldplay Tune. We’re huge fans of Alex — We bet you are now too!

When we had finished the arrangement we all agreed that listening to it was like taking a journey to somewhere remote and ruggedly beautiful. How were we to depict this with a cello, African percussion and, most difficult of all, a grand piano? We took a risky, but oh-so-valuable turn when we called in helicopters to air-lift us and our instruments where none had gone before! (Please excuse the Trek reference). Since no one had ever done this before where were we to go for advice? Well, we can tell you that Home Depot didn’t have a lot of answers (how disappointing) but we did clean them out of their strongest cable they had. We don’t mind telling you that when that helicopter began lifting our brand new-never-before-played grand piano into the air we couldn’t help close our eyes and cross our fingers. We consider a blessing of Heaven that it worked. I guess we figured that if it didn’t, maybe it could still be a viral video — “PIANO MOVE FAIL” =)
We’d like to thank from the bottom of our hearts, Duane Fielding who offered the helicopters and SkyHawk http://www.skyhawkhelicopters.com for not dropping the piano…:-) Half-way through the first day of shooting we discovered that, as typical guys, we had forgotten to bring ANY food or water to this remote location. We had two options: one, wrestle a mountain rodent and harvest cacti or two, starve. Duane, our head pilot, took pity on us. He took off (literally) and moments later landed in a Wendy’s parking lot, ordered 5 of everything (sadly, he couldn’t use the drive through)…took off again and brought us chicken sandwiches and hamburgers via airmail. Thank you Duane! Flying in your helicopter was a dream come true for us despite the lack of doors. =)

www.American-Idol-HD.com Usher tells Mike to project to the back of the room. He demonstrates how to look through the camera to connect to the audience. Its a little creepy! Big Mike gets his guitar back, sits on a stool and sings. No big stage moves this week. A very quiet performancefor the most part, Mike has extraordinary vocal control. Very pretty. This is very different from what hes been doing in the live shows. Will the judges find it boring? Randy says, Very sensitive song, you are in the zone, Im loving every performance, it wasnt as exciting, but its good to pull back once in a while Ellen says, That was beautiful. She also makes a joke about Michael performing with his back to the judges (they had to watch it on a monitor) Kara says, I never heard that song before you picked it, you did an incredible job with it, you got to the true emotion of the song, tasteful, lovely. Simon says, This is probably the first time that I can actually take you seriously as an artist, although it was a little gloomy, you were being original, having a moment, instead of singing silly karaoke, I believed that performance, I thought it was terrific. Usher says, You did it man.

Alex Harvey (February 5, 1935 – February 4, 1982) was a Scottish rock and roll performer. With his Sensational Alex Harvey Band, he built a strong reputation as a live performer during the 1970s glam rock era.
Harvey was born in Glasgow. His musical roots were in Dixieland jazz and skiffle music, which enjoyed considerable popularity in England and Scotland during the late 1950s. During this period, he won a competition that sought “Scotland’s answer to Tommy Steele”. Alex Harvey was literally the “last of the teenage idols,” a distinction he made much of during his subsequent career – practically worshipped by his fans.
In 1959, Harvey formed “Alex Harvey’s Soul Band,” and recorded blues and rock and roll material, to modest success. In 1966, Harvey found more success as a member of the cast in London production of the musical Hair.
In 1972, Harvey formed the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, composed of himself, guitarist Zal Cleminson, Bassist Chris Glen, and cousins Ted and Hugh McKenna on Drums and Keyboards respectively. All four were former members of a progressive rock band called Tear Gas. The Sensational Alex Harvey Band or SAHB as they were often known gave Harvey his greatest successes, both musical and sales. Harvey’s skiffle background led him to include unusual material for the period in his sets, including old pop songs and Broadway musical material. His live act also usually featured a tale of “Vambo”, an urban superhero who was the subject of some of his more energetic numbers. His performances were more substantial than the usual rock musicians of the time combining a musical and verbal flare with both humour and sincerity and his songs often contained messages and morals. The concept albums “The Impossible Dream” and “Tomorrow Belongs To Me” rival even the Beatles and The Rolling Stones late 60s albums for richness of texture.
The Sensational Alex Harvey Band scored chart hits in Britain with the single Delilah, a remake of the Tom Jones hit, and also with “The Boston Tea Party”.
Harvey died of a heart attack in Zeebrugge, Belgium, the day before his 47th birthday.
