You can't tell me these to aren't related!!!
But on to more important issues. . . . . . . I can think of four stand out performances from American Idol that have made me say "Now that's a star performance!" I wish I could post the videos, so you could see for yourself, but look it up on YouTube, and tell me your feelings!
1st- Carrie Underwood "Alone"
I mean she was just this quite girl from Oklahoma, but when she took the stage with her huge country hair and belted that song like she was packing major DIVA attitude! (which is super hard, I mean it's Heart!), I think all of America knew she was the one to beat! And they where right!!!
2nd- Katherine McPhee "Somewhere over the Rainbow"
I like Katherine, but I will say I did vote for Taylor, and I have since seen the error of my ways. . . . .so get off my back, but the performance that gave me chills was Katherine's rendition of "Over The Rainbow", I mean normally that song is pageanty and a song not suited for Idol, but i liked it even better then the original, Katherine's beautiful clear voice, and amazing range, literally wowed me! And the second time she did that song she sat down the whole time!!!!! How did she do that?
3rd- Jordin Sparks "I Who Have Nothing"
While Simon said it was depressing, I said it was touching, the perfect song for any scorned lover, this song gave me chills once more, and I believe we rewound it and watched it over again! Jordin can also be added to the list of powerhouse voices and she really showcased her skills on this song. I would also mention she blew me away with her rendition of "Broken Wing" by Martina McBride.
And 4th- David Archuleta "Imagine"
If you didn't see this performance last night you are missing out, because it was sooooooooo amazing, and if this kid doesn't win something from this show, then people are a lot dumber then I thought, some people are show stoppers and some are not. . . . .but this kid is undeniable awesome, and has that star quality that everyone else can only fake! sign me up for The Arch Angel club!!!!
That's all she wrote. . . . Peace Out!
