ETA: Leona Lewis to appear on American Idol on April 23, 2008.
“X Factor winner Leona Lewis is flying home from Los Angeles after falling ill while recording her debut album.”
So does this mean Leona won’t appear on this week’s American Idol semifinal? Well just in case, here’s a comparison of Leona and past American Idol contestants singing the same songs. You decide. Is Leona really a better singer? I think she is good, but in my opinion several AI contestants are at least her equal. I think Leona wins on Over the Rainbow, Fantasia wins on Summertime, Kelly wins on A Moment Like This, and Leona and Clay tie on Bridge. Leona might be the best singer, but not necessarily the best song performer. What do you think?
Bridge Over Troubled Waters
Somewhere Over the Rainbow
A Moment Like This
