American Idol Instant Recap: La’Porsha Renae, “Battles”
Really thought this was gonna be a smash hit. Had that nice, slow build up and I was waiting for some monster note to come along, La’Porsha to crush it and me to run a victory lap around my house for calling her title.
The song was either poorly written or poorly arranged, because that big note didn’t happen. La’Porsha sang the shit out of it, because that’s what she does, but it wasn’t that Idol moment that “A Moment Like This,” “Home” or what “Beautiful Life” was.
Maybe it was done on purpose. I mean, if La’Porsha murders her first song on stage, there ain’t much drama going into tomorrow night. Even with that performance, there might not be much drama, unless you count whether or not her daughter wearing a diamond-studden headband is drama. That kid is so balled out it makes me feel bad about my own family.
