Are you guys watching the final season of American Idol? If not, you’re definitely missing out. The top 8 are undoubtedly some of the best talent to ever grace an American Idol stage. Don’t believe me? I’ll prove it by highlighting my top two:
1. La’Porsha Renae
Talk about a powerhouse voice! She is a currently going through a divorce from an abusive marriage and she is also raising a young daughter. Her struggle, yet desire to triumph, becomes very apparent when she sings.
I’m not sure if she is, and it doesn’t matter if she is or isn’t, but I really want her to be a lesbian. For my own personal reasons, lol. However, none of that adds or takes away from her beautiful voice and intriguing demeanor. I do believe we have a young star in the making.
Since it is the last season let’s take a moment to honor some of the talent of Idol past with one of my favorite songs right now:
Right Here, Right Now by Jordin Sparks
I hate when I discover good music late, but I guess that’s better than never having discovered it at all!
