A girl just butchered Don't Stop Believin on Idol and Steve was sitting with her parents in the audience. He got up and talked with everybody and said he loved her performance.

Gabby Barrett Sang 'Don't Stop Believin'' in Front of Journey's Steve Perry — and He Loved It

http://people.com/music/american-idol-g ... y-journey/

Gabby Barrett sang Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin'” in front of millions — but there was one unexpected (and legendary!) guest in the crowd that took her breath away.

During Sunday’s episode of American Idol, the Pittsburgh native took on the fan-favorite tune for her last performance of the night. Little did she know, she was singing in front of the iconic rock band’s former lead singer, Steve Perry.

“That was insane,” Barrett, 18, told PEOPLE after the show. “I’m actually surprised I knew who it was at first because he’s older now, but I looked over and I knew his face. I was like, ‘Oh my gosh.’ I had no idea he was coming. That was such an honor.”

She added, “He said that my version was the best version that he ever heard. That’s so crazy. My dad would always play Journey in the car and I remember watching him perform on the television. I remember him wearing a yellow t-shirt and some tight skinny jeans and just seeing him here and being able to sing his song in front of him was such an honor. Holy monkeys!”

After Barrett completed her song for the evening, she noticed Perry standing near her parents and quickly said, “Oh my gosh, I know who that is!”

Instead of the judges critiquing her performance, Katy Perry suggested that Journey star do the honors.

“She was amazing, that’s my critique,” he said.'

Nice to see Steve get out and have some fun, he looks great and was very gracious to the young singer.

I was watching and loved seeing Steve make an appearance like that and I hope he's doing it for a reason, but I hope it doesn't unfairly influence people to vote for this girl. She's good but another girl on there is my favorite.

The Sky Is The Limit For American Idol Finalist Gabby Barrett
The Munhall native is just getting startedThe Sky Is The Limit For American Idol Finalist Gabby Barrett –

The KDKA Radio Morning News with Larry Richert and John Shumway
June 04, 2018

- read full article and listen to audio interview
...
During an American Idol performance she wanted to represent Pittsburgh by signing “Renegade” by Stix or Pittsburgh rock icon Donnie Iris’ “Ah! Leah!”

However, Journey’s own Steve Perry had different plans in mind.

“We submitted both of those songs and the story about Steve Perry was he didn’t allow anybody in the show to sing a Journey song. He contacted American Idol and said Gabby Barrett was the only one, and he wanted to meet her.”
Gabby then brought the house down with her version of “Don’t Stop Believin’.” ...

Perry can refuse someone to sing DSB on a contest show?
Is this true for all writers?

I had heard before the show aired that they had to get permission from Journey to sing DSB. Surprised me too.

I'd imagine that you would need permission for all of the songs performed. That's probably why the first season of AI had the same dozen or so songs featured…seemed like every other person was singing Son of a Preacher Man!

Copyrights after 1978 runs lifetime of author plus 70 years...

Don't suppose even the tiny subway singer would be exempt.

I'm still taken aback & somewhat mortified that they would want that nasal chipmunk on steroids to butcher DSB or maybe blondes with long legs have a way of deadening the auditory faculties.

Perhaps they prescribe to the any publicity even the butcheress is "good" publicity theory!

WTH???? :twisted:

Yep.

When Sammy Hagar did Live From Daryl's House with Daryl Hall, Eddie VH wouldn't allow them to play any Van Halen tunes, even though Sammy co-wrote them.
