Thia Megia Brings the Heat Wave

by at . Comments

Only 16 years old, Thia Megia was born a full generation after the end of Motown.

But that didn't stop this talented crooner from showing off a bit of rhythm and belting out Martha and the Vandellas' "(Love Is Like A) Heat Wave" on last night's American Idol performance show.

What is the best audition of the evening? No, we'd give that honor to Jacob Lusk or James Durbin. But it was a different type of song for Thia, who proved her versatility a bit, as Jennifer Lopez said: "I feel like we're scratching the surface with you a little bit."
