Alexandrea Lushington’s If You Leave Me Now

Alexandrea LushingtonI’ve been watching American Idol on QTV 11 these past few weeks. One of my favorites, Alexandrea (Alex-andre-a) Lushington, has been voted off last week. The judges didn’t like her version of If You Leave Me Now (Chicago). But honestly, I think it was good. I really liked it. If it hadn’t been for her nice low-register voice, it would have sounded acoustic or ballad, which I think won’t sound any different from the original. I have nothing against those type of songs. I just like the way she turned it into a nice soothing soulful song. It sounded sweet. I love it!

But then again, the judges were not impressed, and so were the viewers. She sang the same song during the vote-off episode and her close friend, David Archuleta, was crying the whole time.

As soon as she finished singing, she went out and gave him a hug. Watching them like that made my heart melt. To describe it in Tagalog, it was like “tagos sa puso” (bigat no?). Well, maybe its just me.
