E! News: How do you say your tastes differ?
AL: I’m kind of partial to the divas. I think that’s sort of my soft spot. I actually think Meghan and Ester might agree. We had a Britney, a J.Lo, we had a Celine, we had Tina, we had Dolly. These are these iconic women. I have to say, I really enjoyed the bands too that came on the show. We had Depeche Mode, Bon Jovi, Ozzy. That was a lot of fun too. It’s interesting because those artists are from a specific time. It was funny. We even got to the point where it was so specific—I know a lot of the bands but I don’t know if they were as well known to the other judges. I had like an inside track during these performances, I think.
ED: I think that’s what’s so cool about it because we were able to tell them what would make a better version of their cover band, so if it was hair, if it was an outfit or if it was dancing, we have Kurt Korrell who also tells how they should sing more like that artist. So it was a lot of expertise that went into it as well, like, how would J.Lo sing it? How would U2 perform? They all have different mannerisms in their voice and in their performance style.
Look out for the COCB truck this Friday, Oct. 15 in L.A. and NYC followed by a special Clash of the Cover Bands concert at CityWalk Universal Studios Hollywood this Saturday, Oct. 16 at 3 p.m. PT.
