Over the Rainbow Wrap Up - Episode 7
Hello Over the Rainbow fans! Episode seven is all said and done and tensions are high as ever as our Top 4 went toe-to-toe last night to keep their hopes alive.
Our Dorothy hopefuls set the tone right at the outset with the opening group number - Journey's Don't Stop Believin' adapted for the musical Rock of Ages. The fans loved it, the judges loved it, and it was the perfect performance to show off just how far our Top 4 have come.
Stephanie La Rochelle was tasked with the night's first solo, singing the title song from the musical Cabaret. Officially dubbed the 'dark horse of the competition', Stephanie proved any doubters wrong with another display of her talent, versatility and presence. And the judging panel was quick to commend her for the progress she's made as a performer throughout the competition.
Next up was Winnipeg's Colleen Furlan, who gave a spellbinding performance of Somewhere from West Side Story. Colleen earned praises for her vocals - and Thom Allison went so far as to say she's got the best voice in the competition. But the panel also pushed her to continue finding more depth in her work.
Kitchener's AJ Bridel then took the stage with a high-powered performance of All That Jazz from Chicago. AJ has delivered strong showings since day one, getting top marks from the judges for her presence and confidence. Though Arlene commented that she'd like to see her find more subtlety in her performances, Louise countered by adding that AJ can captivate an audience right off the bat.
The final solo performer of the evening, Danielle Wade sang I Dreamed A Dream from the hit musical Les Misérables. The judges wanted to see Danielle show a little more vulnerability, and obliged by giving a (quite literally) chilling performance. Louise commented on Danielle's innate grace on stage, and Thom Allison called Danielle 'the real thing' and left it at that.
The Top 4 then closed the evening off with a sensational performance of the hit song Seasons of Love from the musical Rent.
