If there was any proof that Tina Turner was an imitable force of nature unto herself, just take a look at Paloma Faith attempting to sing the Diva's iconic River Deep, Mountain High.
Recorded for Jools' Annual Hootenanny, the performance really did not play to Paloma's strengths. Despite a concerted effort from the singer, which I applaud, the song swallowed her whole, chewed her up a little, and then spat her back out. It's a shame because this Diva does have a pair of lungs on her.
Perhaps if she'd stayed away from trying to imitate Ms. Turner it may have worked.. Still, there's a lesson here for everyone- bar Beyonce, obviously: Never try to imitate Tina Turner. You will fail.
