I’m not a huge fan of the PCD’s but I do like this version of ‘Jai Ho’ from the movie ‘Slumdog Millionaire’. The PCD’s did an amazing rendition of the song.
(March 13) – When Pussycat Dolls‘ Nicole Scherzinger first saw the Oscar-winning movie ‘Slumdog Millionaire,’ she felt two things: awe and a desire to meet the challenge of creating the group’s own version of ‘Jai Ho,’ the film’s Best Song Oscar win.
“I thought the movie was unbelievably powerful and life changing,” Scherzinger tells PopEater. “The story was unlike any other story I’d ever seen before. I felt it could touch and make an impact on anyone no matter who you are or where you are from. The characters and the heart and soul of the movie and the music truly inspired me. It was such a great honor to be able to re-write my own version of the lyrics to ‘Jai Ho’ — ‘You are my Destiny.'” The Dolls recently shot the video for the tune in an abandoned train station museum in Vienna, Austria in the middle of a blizzard. “Somehow the energy and love of the songs shined through and it was as if we were just an extension of where the movie took off at the end,” Sherzinger says. As for which ‘Millionaire’ lifeline Scherzinger considers her favorite, well, the movie settled that. “After watching that movie, phone a friend for sure,” she says. “‘Cause in the end, if you have love, then that’s all that matters — you win. Love always wins in the end.”
