Joss Stone could make a better Janis . . .

Posted by Fara Kearnes on February 15, 2005 2:36 PM |

I hope you caught Joss Stone singing "Cry Baby" and "Piece of my Heart" with Melissa Etheridge the other night. They rocked on the Grammy Awards in their dual tribute to the late, great Janis Joplin who you'll be hearing more about in 2005.


Joss Stone

It seems that the Janis Joplin's estate has announced a new reality TV show "Search for the Pearl" will be produced this year. Joplin wannabes from around the country will be invited to audition, and five finalists will be flown to San Francisco to perform for a panel of judges. The winner who can look and sound most like Janis will then headline a world concert tour, performing with bands that played with Joplin including Big Brother & The Holding Company, the Kozmic Blues Band and Full Tilt Boogie Band. "We are excited about bringing Janis and her music to her fans and introduce her style and spirit to future fans as well," said Michael Joplin, the singer's brother, in a statement. The tour will culminate in a star-studded tribute concert in 2006.

Why not just have Joss Stone do the tour and cover all Janis songs?

Oh, well. There's money in reality TV contests but let's hope the singers are more talented than those seen on American Ido1.

In addition to the TV show and tour, the estate also announced that Janis' life will be the subject of a new film to star singer Pink and be directed by Penelope Spheeris.
