My Fantasy Band: Jason Derülo
Friday 28 May 2010
Lead vocalist - Michael Jackson He has been such a big influence on me; he was the reason I got into music in the first place.
Female back-up dancers - Janet Jackson and Madonna I grew up watching them and they're really cool ladies. They can do everything – they're the best combination of singers and dancers.
Male back-up dancers - Justin Timberlake and Usher They are the two I watched the most closely when I was growing up.
Guitar Slash and Jimi Hendrix Slash is just one of the best guitarists of all time, and Jimi Hendrix is definitely one of the greatest guitarists of all time. He brought things to the guitar that people had never seen before. Drums Timbaland He has the most amazing drums in the tracks that he makes.
Piano - Stevie Wonder: He's just a great pianist and he knows how to really feel the keys. He has that emotional aspect when he plays the piano. There's no one like him.
