American Idol Instant Recap: La’Porsha Renae, “Hello”
I love the idea of the judges/producers sitting around, befuddled why they can’t find a song La’Porsha doesn’t make sound good, when one of them comes up with a great idea.
“Let’s make her sing Adele. She’ll do it the same as it’s on the radio and no way she can sing that good.”
After that performance, Harry should have tipped his cap – shocked he wasn’t wearing some sort of chapeaux – and said “touche La’Porsha. Touche.”
Covering an artist the same way the original is done isn’t a great strategy unless you nail the fuck out of it. I hate to curse (false) but that’s really the only way to get this point across. You have to be so good people don’t care about how great the original is. When the song is done by one of the legends, that task is even tougher.
Tougher for normal people. Not for La’Porsha. She won Idol y’all. She won it in a big way tonight.
