There is a lot of energy on the stage! The top three: Chris, Josh and Melanie sing three times. The first time they get to duet with a superstar and then they have one more performance. That’s it and a winner will be picked tomorrow!
Josh draws the first spot and starts singing and introduces…Alanis Morissette as his partner. They sang pretty good, but will it be enough? Alanis says Josh is a soulful man when Steve asks her how it went rehearsing this week. LA said it was surreal and he seemed a perfect fit with her. Paula said he held his own with the song. Simon said he felt he was intimidated and then he heard the old Josh through the middle of the song. Nicole says he is giving as an artist and it was beautiful.
Chris got the second draw. Chris looks confident on stage but is a bit pitchy. Who will he call out? Avril Lavigne! They sing Complicated together and it is a pretty good mix. Not sure if their dance moves are so hot, but that’s secondary to singing right? Avril said he was a dude and kicked a$$ during practice this week. Nicole says it was shaky in the takeoff but he came out on top. Paula liked it of course. Simon said he thinks he was nervous, but when it came down to it, he turned it on. LA said he looked like he was comfortable and it could be a #1 hit if they sold it together.
Who will Melanie sing with? Her dress is sparkly and she looks nervous. She brings out R. Kelly to sing her duet. They sing I Believe I Can Fly and I think of the three, there’s was probably the best. Tough competition tonight, that’s for sure. LA thinks she might have been overshadowed and he didn’t think it was her best. Nicole says it was great and she soared with that song. Paula said it was uplifting and prolific. Simon said it was incredible and she looked like she could be an established act.
Another promo for Michael Jackson’s show. How much time are we going to waste? Ummm, all three come out and sing…? And do a crazy side step dance to it. Strange.
Josh’s turn to go solo comes up. He sings and plays the guitar this week. He sings At Last and rocks it in his own way. LA says he is proud and looks at home on stage. He calls him a rock star. Paula says he is wonderful and owns the stage. Simon says he took a massive risk with a guitar and it was everything they liked about him in the first place. Nicole gushed, of course.
Chris takes his turn and sings a rap sang with his own version of words. Nicole and Paula are dancing. Actually, the words were just different as Chris sang a revised version of the song that got him in the competition in the first place. Risky. Worth it? Chris is moved to tears when the crowd chants his name and he is finished. Nicole says he is serving his purpose. Paula jumps up and says he is magic. Simon says it was his $5 million dollar song. LA says he poured himself in to that song.
Melanie has to give it all she’s got. Chris and Josh both sang their hearts out and did awesome. She gets on stage and sings great. Was it the best song choice for her? Paula is up and dancing. Does she ever sit or is it because the pressure is off since she has no contestants left? Anyway, Melanie wails on it and proves she has a set of pipes, even at 19. LA says it was the Melanie he loves and a $50 million dollar performance. Nicole says they connected and the music empowered her. Paula said she delivered a stellar performance that was gorgeous. Simon said he was so proud of her and she wasn’t ever going to get teased again. He thinks she could represent this show all over the country.
Tomorrow, we find out who wins! How long will they take to announce the winner?
