Thia Megia Sings ‘Heatwave’ — This Song Must Die

When Thia Megia sang Heatwave on tonight’s American Idol, I got the strange feeling that I’d heard it before. After doing my research, I realized the cause of my deja vu. I have heard it before! I’ve heard it sung by three other contestants, and it was once even performed as a group medley. I understand that these songs get repeated, but this isn’t a Karaoke bar with a one page song list.  Do the producers limit the contestants’ choices?  You would think with all that money they could get more songs cleared.   Watch Thia’s performance below, along with the slew of other contestants who sang the same song.
