The final episode of American Idol is upon us, and to be quite honest, I wasn’t having a lot of feelings about the show ending until La’Porsha Renae and Trent Harmon began their vocal showdown last night. I’m only going to talk about my two favorite performances of the night, being La’Porsha’s “A House Is Not A Home” and Trent’s reprise performance of “Chandelier.” (FYI: This really isn’t a review, it’s more of a lovefest for our Top 2 <3)
First off, they both slayed. Vocals were on point, as far as my ears could tell, and I was living for every second of their performances last night. I have wanted this Top 2 since they teamed up for a duet earlier in the season, and they both proved that “the house the Kelly Clarkson built” legit can’t go wrong with whoever takes the final Idol crown.
This performance was completely stunning. STUNNING, I TELL YOU. Like, I was just sitting on my couch at home just blown away. There’s no denying that La’Porsha is talented, and I am so happy that she auditioned for Idol this season, so we all could be blessed by her brilliant vocals.
TBH, I wasn’t quite over Trent’s first performance of “Chandelier,” because it’s already become one of my all-time favorite Idol moments. I thought last night’s reprise was just an absolutely gorgeous vocal. I still remember my reaction to his audition and just being floored by his talent. It kind of made me remember why I love this show and music, in general.
Again, we really can’t go wrong with either of these two phenomenal talents being named the season 15 and final American Idol.
