Lovin' Cup Idol's finale was incredible, with the red carpet hosted by Janet Zinck and Megan Carter to the group performance of a Bohemian Rhapsody. It was a night to be remembered. Joe and Kenny both poured their hearts out on that stage last night and showed that they both had what it took to become the Lovin' Cup Idol of 2013. I have a the video's of their performances as well as a great video of a Beatles Medley sung by 8 of the Top Contestants from this season!
Here is part of the Beatles Medley sung by some of our Top 9! It was fantastic to see all of these competitors together working to make music as one!
Kenny's first song was Heart Attack by Demi Lovato. He chose the song to show the judges something recent. Overall Kenny sang it much better than Demi (at least in my opinion).
Joe's first song was "Follow Through" by Gavin Degraw. A fantastic pick in my opinion, it's a mellow song that really fits Joe's vibe. (and his voice!)
This is an Original Song by Mr. Kenny James himself. This song was absolutely amazing I couldn't believe it when he said it was one of the first he had written. Definitely sounds like it could be on the radio.
For his second song Joe picked "The Only Living Boy in New York" by Simon & Garfunkel. A true hipster classic that Joe performed wonderfully. Definitely another solid choice, Joe really picked songs that complimented his voice as well as who he is.
For Kenny's third song he sang "Maria" by Carlos Santana. This I think was by far Kenny's best song vocally throughout the whole competition. It was humbly performed, and definitely showed just a great side to Kenny.
Joe's final song was "Geek in Pink" by Jason Mraz. This was one an absolutely amazing performance out of Joe. For a guy who forgot his lyrics every once in a while, he killed the rap sections of this. This song really made it seem like Joe came out of his shell. By far the best I had seen out of Joe in the competition.
I want to say thank you to all who helped make the Finale what it was, some of these people include Elvio Fernandes, Megan Carter, Thread, Amy & Angela from Gallery Salon, Leslie Ward, Janet Zinck, Erik Ward, Dem Jones, Willy O' Riley, Mark Bader, Matt Rammerman, Johnny Cummings, and MANY, MANY More. Thank you so much to you all for everything you put into this competition to make it exactly what it is. I have had a wonderful time working with you all and can not wait to do it again next year!
