La’Porsha Renae Stuns With ‘Diamonds’ on American Idol 2016 (VIDEO)

La’Porsha Renae brought the judges to their feet with her performance of “Diamonds” by Rihanna on the American Idol 2016 Top 10 show on Thursday, February 25, 2016!

Keith Urban, Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Lopez give La’Porsha a standing ovation at the end while her fellow contestants, particularly Lee and Avalon, flip out on the couch. It’s a great moment, as La’Porsha fights back tears, with the crowd going positively nuclear for her. Even her family is struggling not to cry. Harry says the crowd response is her critique. Kelly says she loves everyone here, but states that if La’Porsha doesn’t win, she just doesn’t know. Jennifer praises La’Porsha’s incredible control as Kelly continues to freak out, prompting the crowd to go crazy again. Keith says there’s an old quote that goes, “I judge myself not by what I have, but what I’m willing to give.” He says La’Porsha just gave pure humanity. La’Porsha thanks the judges and the crowd for everything. As Ryan prepares to throw to break, he asks if Kelly is crying. And she just reiterates that she loves La’Porsha. Could La’Porsha have just jumped to frontrunner status? I mean, I’m sure some would argue she was always there, so maybe not much has changed.
