She sounded really good with them.
Yes, I thought they were related. Sorry, if I offended any of their fans. It's not that I dislike them, it's just that I find their vocals very average. They have some good songs, but they never impress me. I think adding Janelle in the mix would help them, even if she isn't related. (All of the Allman Brothers Band were not related either. lol)
Jennifer Hudson just isn't my cup of tea. I think she is probably a very lovely woman. Lord knows her life has had some really high highs and some incredibly low lows since Idol. I admire all that she has accomplished. That being said, I much prefer the tone of Candace's voice much, much more. That isn't knocking JHud, it's strictly a preference thing.
I thought Angie and Janelle both were incredible last night. And I am excited for Angie! How cool is it to have that kind of opportunity offered. I too noticed Adam mouth "wow".
How desperate were the producers for Angie to not peform her original song? I liked the one she did with Adam and the one with Jessie J was okay, but it meant she couldn't do her own song....something the judges had begged her to do from day one. lol I wonder why they set it up that way.
I didn't watch the Finale because my favorite, Angie Miller went home. However, congrats to Candice. She deserved to win the Idol over Kree, IMO. I just watched the video of Angie/Adam and Angie/Jessie J performances. Amazing. What a great opportunity for her to tour with JJ in the UK. I do predict that among the top 5, Angie will be the one who will hit it big. She is a real artist, a singer and songwriter. She will sell more records than Candice and Kree, I am sure because there are many Candices and Krees out there already. I mean, Angie's new single has officially been released and doing very, very well.
I just watched the Red Carpet pre show at the AI site and Angie's original song was recorded and released yesterday, Thursday. She was supposed to debut it though surely she knew of the changes to the program an hour before the show started. I'm just glad she gets to make that debut in London.
When I watched Angie and Adam on you tube, I got chills.
Besides having duets with both Adam and Jessie J ... plus the offer from Jessie J .... it would have been just too much to start selling her single ... and would make Candice's single seem even more pale by comparison.
Angie was truly the star of the night ... and I think they didn't want to over do it since she wasn't the ,,, um ,,, legal winner.
