La’Porsha Renae Steals the Show With ‘Proud Mary’ on American Idol 2016 (VIDEO)

La’Porsha Renae stole the show with her rendition of “Proud Mary” by Tina Turner on American Idol 2016 Top 24 Semi-Final on Wednesday, February 10, 2016!

Before the performance, La’Porsha says she doesn’t listen to pop, hip hop, or even R&B in her regular life: she’s all about film scores, baby! (A woman after my own heart!) In particular, she loves the score from the Karate Kid remake starring Jaden Smith, because it makes her feel like she’s in a movie. La’Porsha hits the stage, and she’s even wearing the Tina Turner dress. Hell, she gives us the Tina dance moves! This was easily the performance of the night, between her vocal, stage presence, and just the attitude and fire she brought to the song. She earns a standing ovation from Keith, and deservedly so. Harry thinks either La’Porsha will make the other contestants get better or she’s going to make them want to quit, because she’s so captivating and smart that he’d be foolish to critique that in any way, shape or form. Keith loves how she connects and communicates a song in her performance, while J-Lo says she’s been dreaming of a voice like La’Porsha’s. Watch the video below:
