Before Empire’s greatness with Timbaland and before Glee there was ‘Instant Star’.
I used to love this show. I don’t know what it was about Jude Harrison’s story, but I couldn’t get enough of it. There was plenty of drama, with the music industry and with her love life and I was hooked! There were only 4 seasons and it came on what was then ‘The-N’ (now TeenNick) so I had to have cable or watch it online at the time.
The storyline was simple: Jude (the blonde in the front) won a singing contest (like American Idol) and wins a recording contract. The show goes through the trials and tribulations of that, and on top of that Jude does a new every week. Some of my favorite songs ever came from that show, and I wanted to share some of them with y’all. Jude Harrison (Alexz Johnson) has a power ballad-y type voice so most of these are power ballads.
Take a listen and let me know what you think! What about y’all? Any “musical” shows you like?
