After Bruno called Bolton’s jive ‘the worst in eleven seasons’ of ‘DWTS,’ the Artist Formerly Known for His Mullet went off, calling him ‘disrespectful’ and demanding an apology.
But tonight, he’ll have his chance to hit back. So what should Michael Bolton sing tonight when he replaces Susan Boyle, who had to pull out with a “severe infection,” on Dancing with the Stars?
If he’s got revenge in his throat after being slammed by Bruno on last week’s show, may we suggest “Every Breath You Take” by the Police? And this is a little weird, but how about Alanis Morissette‘s “You Oughta Know?”
If Mike can reach back into the blues canon, I’d personally vote for JJ Cale’s “River Runs Deep,” with the following lyrics: The river runs deep and the water is cold as ice … Ain’t no woman going to make a fool out of me … She’s at the bottom of the river dead. Dark? Yes. Menacing? Oh, yeah.
Ultimately, though, maybe he’ll take the high road and go with his 1991 smash ballad “Time, Love, and Tenderness.”
What do you think he should sing?
