More than halfway through this season of All Together Now Australia, and tonight on episode 5, rock ‘n’ roll music played all night long!
We started out with kind of a bang bang with Emma who had a great attitude, but got a bit tongue-tied in the rap. We quickly moved on to Greg, a fitness musician who had the look, but didn’t make me wake up for his song. He was very nervous, and you could hear the tremble in his voice.
Moving on to the first big performance of the night, Harmony in Three, three pitch-perfect divas singing an even bigger diva – Tina Turner and Proud Mary! They made almost all of us get up and dance!
I loved James the truckie singing Jimmy Barnes’ Working Class Man. I could tell he loved sharing his voice with the crowd and he was one of my standout performances of the episode.
Then we had Dean, or Feminem (great name!) performing We Are The Champions. Dean looked fantastic, but the song didn’t quite make it.
Hanna sang Florence and the Machine’s You’ve Got The Love which really worked well with her unique and beautiful voice and sent her through to the top 2 of the episode along with Harmony in Three.
The final two performers were Mivon and Afrotanium, and Mark singing Kesha’s Praying. Mark was a beautiful singer and gave a great performance of a fantastic song, and it’s a shame he didn’t quite make it through to the finals.
The final sing-off between Hanna and Harmony in Three didn’t start well, with Hanna choosing Rather Be, but she stumbled a bit and ended up with a very disappointing 25 points. This paved the way for Harmony in Three to move on to the grand final, but they not only did that, but performed One Night Only (from Dreamgirls, which I’ve also been privileged to perform in a stage adaptation) and got every single judge to stand up, giving them a perfect 100!
What a night! Check out previous recaps here.
