Candice VS Kree
Last night was the top two performances and some people might have said it was boring but i think i was actually a pretty good night of fantastic singing from these two females.
Coming into the night we all knew that Candice was the frontrunner and Kree was the underdog but honestly i think their body of work from the season is equal, in their own ways. Candice is a freak of nature with amazing vocals and kree has this smooth tone that can melt your heart. So lets see how each girl did last night
Simon Fullers Choice
On paper this song just seems so overdone and it actually is but it fit kree perfectly. She sang the song with very light and tender vocals. I actually really enjoyed the performance simply because i love Krees voice. could they had picked a better song for her? well yes because while it was a gorgeous vocal, it was also a bit sleepy and that's something kree had been suffering with all season.
Another Adele song? i honestly thought at first that this was a bad song choice because there really isn't much you can do to this song. but Candice changed up the tempo and took some liberties with her vocals so it actually turned out to be a pretty good performance, not her best but it was good.
For this round id say it was a tie but i will give Candice a slight edge just for changing up her song choice
All Cried Out
This was no "Home" But i think kree had the advantage on this round because she has experience in writing songs and what not. I actually really liked her song, it wasn't the greatest coronation song ever but i think its radio ready and i think she really gave it her all on this performance
To Be honest Candice sounded great and the song it very "2013" but i didn't like the lyrics of the song. It just sounded like an updated version of Jessica Sanchez song from last season. Not something that id really give a second listen to.
This round ill give it to kree, I think her song was just plain better
Up To The Mountain
I'm so glad that she picked this song, this was really the only song she could have picked to really have a "moment", she sang it so well and with the choir in the back it was the only time i had goosebumps throughout the whole night. The only problem is that kree decided to go first instead of last which was a bad idea
I Who Have Nothing
It was a bad idea because Candice came out last and completely stole the night with this performance. The way she started off accapella was really nice and then by the end she just sang the heck out if it. This one performance might have won Candice the night.
This round, technically Candice won this round but i preferred Krees up to the mountain, maybe I'm biased but i just really loved it.
My prediction is that Candice Glover will be crowned tonight, first she closed the show with one heck of a performance and second DialIdol says she will win and dialidol has never been wrong for a finale. SO yea i still want Kree to win because shes my favorite but she probably wont and I'm not mad at all i think both these ladies are great singers with big futures.
