American Idol 12: Top 6 Studio Versions Part 1

Since our Top 6 performed two songs this week, which they surprisingly recorded both, I've decided to split them into two. So, who managed to pull off something as old as this songbook?

[REVIEW] American Idol 12: Top 6 Performances

RANDOM THOUGHTS: Not sure what to think of these recordings. I think I enjoyed Candice Glover and Amber Holcomb's recordings the most. Candice manages to make the song sound relatively current if not for the inorganic sounding backing vocals. Amber, on the other hand, gives the song a fresh interpretation with some of her vocal choices. Her phrasing sounds fantastic here. Kree Harrison also has a nice recording if a little dated for my taste. Same with Angie Miller minus the emotional connection. Janelle Arthur just picked the wrong cheesy song. And yes, even this recording didn't work for Lazaro Arbos. Listen for yourself.

Amber Holcomb: I Say A Little Prayer
Angie Miller: Anyone Who Had A Heart
Candice Glover: Don't Make Me Over
Janelle Arthur: I'll Never Fall In Love Again
Kree Harrison: What The World Needs Now
Lazaro Arbos: (They Long To Be) Close To You
