About Clark Beckham
From our live blog:
J-Lo said that the key to being onstage, according to Aretha, is not to think so much and just feel. She feels Clark is getting there, but she wants to feel more. However, she notes that he’s so amazing, she feels he really can go all the way. Harry concurs, saying Clark is an amazing talent, but the song was missing a proper beginning, middle, and end. He felt it would have been better if Clark had another minute and a half. Keith then serves up the best critique of the night by saying Clark should have ditched the band and just played the song with his guitar. I agree. Sure, you’d be moving in on the sacred territory of Adam Lambert’s version in Season 8, but I think he’s got the talent to pull it off. I mean, really, did you hear that falsetto? Backstage, Clark says he was happy with the performance, since he got to chill with his guitar in the beginning and rock out at the end. But wait, I thought Harry said it didn’t have a beginning or end?!?!
