LaPorsha Renae – Creep by Radiohead – Kris Allen is out in the holding room, holding LaPorsha’s baby, and comparing parenthood notes. They talk about how having kids changed their lives. Sweet. Her backstory involves domestic abuse. She had to move into a shelter with her 7 month old baby daughter. She tells her life story through songwriting. Her baby makes her strong, she says. Jlo holds the little one while LaPorsha belts out a powerful version of “Creep.” The baby coos while she sings. She’s got a big big voice, but she knows how to sing tenderly and with subtlety too. Big growls from LaPorsha. But just when you think it might be too much, she pulls it back. Keith called her version a “fresh take.” He loved it. “You are an assassin with runs,” says Harry, meaning it as a compliment. 3 yesses “She’s going to give some singers a run for their money,” says Keith.
