I’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![audio:http://www.icezorg.com/soundtemp/Alexandrea%20-%20If%20You%20Leave%20Me%20Now.mp3]
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.
Can’t attach the video, watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwO2x5KzqdQ
Watch Alex as she sings her own version of Jamaican Funk. This is another side of her that we haven’t seen on the show.
