Anoop Desai Covers Jay Sean

American Idol Season 8 finalist Anoop Desai is now on the country fair circuit while he waits to get signed. Here he performs the Number 1 song in America, Jay Sean’s Down.

He also debuted an original song that he co-wrote entitled Give In To Her Love.

Anoop seems much more relaxed and his vocals sound much stronger than they did on Idol. Much of the criticism the judges heaped on Desai centered on the fact that Simon and Co. were not convinced that he could be a successful R&B artist. Now that there is a precedent for successful South Asian R&B singers in Jay Sean, hopefully Anoop can create the kind of music that he’s said he’s always wanted to do.

For the record, Anoop’s studio version of Caught Up by Usher is fantastic.
