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."

Agree completely @JordanS. Thia is a breath of fresh air in the music industry that is flooded with autotunes. She has shown that she's versatile and she can songs effortlessly, not trying so hard! It's just sad that I can't vote for her because I'm here in Canada, not in the United States :(

Great for a teenage star to be like this for a change. Understated elegance on stage, beautiful voice that doesn't have to show off with unnecessary runs and belting, respectful to adults and people around her, and just pure abundance of stage presence. Good luck, Thia! America sure needs more teenage stars like you with no auto tuning (kinda reminds me of an Asian Hillary Duff - but even with better vocals)...

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
