Donny Osmond won the ninth season Dancing with the Stars
in 2009 and responded in time-honored Osmond fashion: he gave us what we wanted with the eager-to-please The Entertainer
. You want acoustic re-recordings of hits? The Entertainer'
s got 'em, with a version of "Puppy Love." Is that too quiet a stroll down memory lane? He tears up "Crazy Horses." You want to hear Donny singing Hall & Oates
? The Entertainer's
got that too! You want to hear Donny do Broadway? He'll sing "Seasons of Love" for you! What about Nat King Cole's "When I Fall Love" or Dan Hill's too-sensitive classic "Sometimes When We Touch?" How about Neil Finn's "Don't Dream It's Over," or a new song you'll never remember no matter how many times you hear it? Donny will sing it for you -- he'll sing whatever you want, he's "the Entertainer," he's just here to make you smile. Donny's crowd-pleasing retains charm, particularly when when he's singing soft rock oldies like Neil Sedaka's "Laughter in the Rain."
