Torrence’s Take on Sunday Best 5: Episode 9

Published by Torrence Glenn on Sunday, August 19, 2012 at 8:53 pm.


So folks, I’m not going to lie and not say that I’m not still a little numb. I have a hard time with eliminations in general even though I know they must be done, but by the time we get to this point, they become even harder. We know the contestants better than wse did at the beginning and then add to that, they’re all so excellent that it’s just hard. You don’t want anyone to leave even though you know someone’s got to. UGH! But anyway, before we get into that, let’s get into Sunday night’s episode, shall we?

Opening the show was the Clark Sisters performing a mini hits medley (they’ve got so many.) They started off with two recent hits “Living” and “Blessed & Highly Favored,” then officially took us back with “Is My Living In Vain” and “You Brought The Sunshine.” It was just a fantastic performance and those ladies can pretty much do no wrong by me. And I’m going to let you in on a little something, Karen that day wasn’t feeling well at all. She was quite ill but she loves y’all so much, she got up there and killed ANYWAY. Let’s get to competition portion of the show.

Danetra Moore opened up the competition portion of the show with Jesus Will Work It Out by Dr. Charles G. Hayes and the Cosmopolitan Church Choir. – She did a pretty good job but this wasn’t necessarily my favorite performance from her. She seemed a bit disconnected (like that telephone, *rimshot*)  from it and so did the music. I get that this wasn’t the typical arrangement of the song but I still felt like it could have been a bit more harmonious. All the elements were fighting with themselves. I just wanted her vocals, the arrangement, and the music to all come together and they kind of didn’t. Each part did it’s own thing good, just not together.

Michael Lampkin followed with “Awesome God” by Fred Hammond. I don’t know this for sure, but I felt that Michael was having some vocal issues and at times had to compensate for them, but I think it worked. Near the beginning of the song, he seemed to be struggling remembering the words, but by the middle of the song to the end, he started to really push that thing and it got really good, wrong words or not. Don’t get it twisted. Last week’s “Hello Fear” performance was the one to beat, but this one still turned out great too.

Next was Alexis Spight with “Calvary” by Kim Burrell.  I was very, very, very nervous for Alexis when I found out she was doing this song. Not just because she’d have to sing it front of the person who sang it originally, that’s happened every season. But because it was a KIM BURRELL song! And not just a Kim Burrell song, but one of her more complex and intricate songs that if you do it good, it’ll be amazing. But if you do it bad, it’ll be a disaster. There’s no middle to fall back on. Well, Alexis met the challenge and I think did a superb job. I’m thinking this may be my favorite performance from her so far.

Finally, we had Joshua Rogers with “Well Done” by Deitrick Haddon. This was excellent! His voice is made for songs like this because it allows the singer to do all the stuff that Joshua likes to do and is good at; stretch and belt notes for effect. Joshua didn’t do too much or too little with this which this song could have also forced him to do. Somewhere in the bridge, I felt something “shift.” (Church talk) and I was gone. It was alright with me! Ha!

Kierra Sheard clsoed the performance portion of the show with her new hit “Indescribable.” I LOVE this side of her. Its’ so sincere, so good, so sweet and so church all at the same time. She may come already come from a legendary family but she’s easily on her way to becoming a legend in her own right. Mark my words.

Well, we’re almost there. We’re down to the final two and it’s Alexis Spight and Joshua Rogers. What do you think? Did the judges get it right? But here’s the fun part. Tonight was the judges’ last night to make decisions. Next week after Alexis and Joshua battle it out, it will finally be up to you, the viewers to decide who will be Sunday Best.

So I’ll ask again, what did you think of this past episode? Did the judges get it right. Who would have been your final two?
