On Wednesday's American Idol, the final six sang the music of Queen. To me, Queen's music is some of the most difficult music you could possibly sing. Freddie Mercury had one of the most incredible voices. He had tremendous range and was a brilliant songwriter. So to try and sing these complex songs is a huge challenge...for anyone.
I thought the final six did an amazing job. If you've watched Idol much this year, you know this year's crop of talent is probably the best they've ever had on the show. Last night, they proved that once again. Original Queen members Roger Taylor and Brian May were on stage with the contestants rocking to Queen's music.
My favorites remain Joshua Ledet and Jessica Sanchez. Those two are a level above the rest in my opinion. There is a dark horse...and I think it's Skylar Laine. She has the appeal to pull an upset and win it all with her "down home country approach" and talent.
We'll see tonight who gets eliminated. It's going to be a tough choice.
