Lady Marmalade by Patti Labelle – STILL BITTER THAT SHE KNOCKED ALI OUT OF THE RUNNING. She had to learn THREE songs she never performed before. Also, she’s having vocal issues. Oh. Sis. Taking on a pretty big song there. The song does compliment her stage style, which involves strutting all over the stage, with a squat thrown in here and there for good measure.Meghan loved her sassy style. Diddy says, “You’ve really really grown.” He admires the way she came back last week. “You found your bag,” he says.
Whitney Reign Lady Marmalade Round 1 Performance The Four Season 2 FINALE
Results! The winner of Round One is….Sharaya J Sharaya challenges Whitney Reigns. Smart.She’ll be super easy to pick off. The next battle will be a re-match between James Graham and Leah Jeneah.
Diddy asks Whitney if he smells feel. “Not at all!” she insists. Diddy declares a fear-free zone. Oh boy.
Whitney Reign – Million Reasons by Lady Gaga – After losing her record deal, she was relegated to cleaning rooms for 10 dollars an hour. She’s hungry! “I fought so hard to get here,” she says, “This is the biggest moment of my life.” Oh. This performance highlights all of her vocal weaknesses. Really, she’s better singing upbeat songs that allow her to work the stage. This performance is a yelly, pitchy mess.
Sharaya J vs Whitney Reign Challenge Round 2
Results. The judges decide this round. And the winner is Sharaya J. Whitney Reign is ELIMINATED. Well. That was inevitable. With the judges choosing the winner now, it’s pretty easy to predict the results.
Whitney Reign IS BACK in the COMEBACK episode and sings Mama Knows Best.
Whitney Reign Performs "Issues"
Get your: Here
The eight contenders will be paired up into duos. The winners of the matchups will have the opportunity to challenge one of the four. Audience determines the Comeback battles. The judges determine The Four battles.
Stephanie Zelaya vs Whitney Reign – Latin singer Stephanie was one of the original four. Until R&B singer Whitney took her out! Then Whitney lost her seat to Ali.
Whitney Reign – Mama Knows Best by Jessie J – Whitney has a solid R&B voice, even if her presentation is kind of corny.
Stephanie Zelaya – Bailamos by Enrique Iglesias – Stephanie lost to Whitney for a reason! She’s not as good a vocalist. But I would say her stage presence is equally corny. These performances are ridiculously short.
Diddy says he didn’t “smell any fear tonight.” Meghan compliments Stephanie’s supposed “stank face.” Khaled “You did an amazing job.” TIME TO VOTE. Whitney Wins the Challenge Stephanie is Eliminated. Whitney Challenges Ali
Ali Caldwell – My All by Mariah Carey – Ugh on this old fashioned song choice. I suppose it gives Ali the opportunity to show off her incredible pipes. But does it show the panel that she has what it takes to be a viable artist in today’s music scene?
Whitney Reign – Don’t Let Go by En Vogue – Welp. Whitney chooses an equally old fashioned song. Hands down, Ali is the better singer and she doesn’t need the over the top stage moves. Whitney is pouring everything she’s go into her performance. I’ll give her that.
Meghan says Ali gave her chills. She sees a touring star in Whitney. Diddy says it’s a tough decision. “I saw your swag tonight,” he says to Whitney. He compliments Ali’s voice. “I’m here to decide who will Diddy sign.” The panels go into a confab where they argue back and forth. Whitney Wins the Challenge. Ali is Eliminated. SERIOUSLY I OBJECT ALI WAS ROBBED. Ali is crying her eyes out. Says they aren’t sad tears. She’s grateful. Diddy says, “My heart was with Whitney.” Hm.
Shirelda Velitz In my Simon Cowell voice..”Yeeeeeeeeeah, that’s gonna be a NO for me. All that gyrating for nothing. The boots were nice though. Goodbye and go home.
ShayShay Saluria You guys forget they are looking for performers, not just singers. You can sing like Jennifer Hudson but if you are boring as shit, it won't even matter. You have to light up that stage boo, whether it be nice boots and poppin and moderate singing. She lit up that stage
Sharon Young I don't think they should have brought her back because she wasn't impressive before. She would try to perform too hard to cover that her voice is just ok.
Tanja Rondo I’m sorry but I do not think she’s a good singer!! She’s doing too much. I pick James over Whitney
Alex Harvin She can sing but as I said before Ali and the 17 year old contestant i forgot name are on a different level vocally. Whenever she tries to hit them big notes they seem to always fall flat in my opinion. This wasn't her best performance but good luck to her and the other returning contestants trying to unseat the 4
