Which artist would you most want to see perform at prom?
Frank Sinatra could easily perform at a high school prom. Once the announcement comes on for the “last song”, he could slide in with the good o’l classic “The Way You Look Tonight”. It would be the subtle, yet perfect, transition from some upbeat dance music, to some slow smooth dance.
Oh for sure the Jonas Brothers, who wouldn’t want to see the band get back together at prom? Yeah I know this sounds silly but you can’t go wrong with the Jonas Brothers. The best boy band everyone grew up with, and how amazing would it to see them perform in a tiny town like Ketchikan? Having the Jonas Brothers perform would be lit.
I was probably born in the wrong generation music-wise, but I have to go with the best live performer of all time. As soon as he goes on stage and his first song comes on, everyone would know who entered the room. Starting off with “Wanted Dead or Alive”, my choice is the man, the myth, the legend, Jon Bon Jovi. Not only would he out perform all of the rap genre artists combined, he has the perfect playlist to go along with it too.
I hate following the large amount of basic teenage girls screaming for this man to come on stage and perform, but I have to say the 6 God himself, Drake. Drake has the largest variety of music, ranging from traditional rap to his sad R&B songs, he would fit perfectly in today’s prom.
There’s only one song that gets everyone at once lit at any dance ever “Crank That” by Soulja Boy. Soulja Boy is possibly the greatest rapper of all time, and has the best dance moves of any artist ever; rumor has it that “Crank That” was originally written for Michael Jackson, but he insisted Soulja kept it because it was “too emotional”. Big Soulja would perform his one hit, and then get off the stage, which is all we need.
If I had to choose one person to play live at prom I personally would like to have Queen there performing. My taste in music is very diverse but I think Queen has most of the bases covered. You have the heavy bass line that young folk crave in songs like “Another One Bites the Dust”, you have your soulful slow songs like “Somebody to Love”, and you have your uptempo groove songs with songs like “Don’t Stop Me Now”, and “I Want to Break Free”. Not to mention that lead singer Freddie Mercury is a total babe, just saying.
