Have you seen Bolt yet? Nominated for an Academy award, this film is about a Hollywood action star dog who believes he has super powers! But does he? If you haven’t found out whether or not Bolt’s true super powers lie in his paws or in his heart, you’ll definitely want to rent this heart-warming tale about man’s best friend voiced by John Travolta.
Miley Cyrus lends her voice-acting and singing talents to the other main character in the film, Penny. Miley sings the song I Thought I Lost You, a song featured on the Bolt soundtrack and in the movie.
Now you can sing right along with Miley, or play sheet music from the movie Bolt. We have a number of songs from the film, including many selections from the musical score composed by John Powell. We hope you enjoy playing Bolt sheet music, and encourage you to write a sheet music review if you get the chance.

This Week on American Idol
Now in its eighth season, American Idol has moved past the audition phase and into the top 36. Performing in batches of twelve, there were some interesting song choices from the first American Idol group. Performances from the first group on American Idol included:
- + Alexis Grace‘s soulful rendition of I Never Loved a Man by Aretha Franklin earned her a spot as an American Idol finalist.
+ A show-stopping version of Hero by Mariah Carey was sung by Danny Gokey. Danny was the clear favorite and it’s no surprise he’s also an American Idol finalist.
+ Ricky Braddy‘s high tenor voice breathed new life into the pop song A Song For You by Leon Russell. He didn’t make the finals, which was a bit surprising because Ricky has an amazing voice.
+ Sung by American Idol finalist Michael Carver, I Don’t Want To Be by Gavin DeGraw was an interesting choice for the audition. This is a pretty complicated song to sing, because of its frequent pitch changes and fast tempo.
+ Casey Carlson didn’t make it in the finals with her rendition of Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic by The Police. Would she have made it if she picked a different song? Maybe. Her performance is a good example of how the right song choice is extremely important for any audition.
For more American Idol sheet music and recaps, stay tuned until next week when more finalists are announced. Until then, we hope you practice your singing all week long. Maybe one of you will consider trying out for next year’s American Idol!
