It’s Sia Week on ‘American Idol’ and we spoke to frontrunner La’Porsha Renae, who tells us that she can’t wait for the Australian superstar to take the stage! Check out our EXCLUSIVE interview right here.
La’Porsha Renae, 22, has wowed us week after week during the final season of American Idol, and we’re sure to see more powerhouse performances from her on the upcoming March 24 episode. There are also performances from Sia, 40, in store, and La’Porsha opened up to us about how she looks up to her fellow musician, as well as what’s next for her if she doesn’t win the competition (though she just might)!
La’Porsha told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that she can’t wait to perform a cover of Sia’s on Thursday! “I am so excited to meet Sia and get the chance to do one of her songs. All of us are excited to meet her,” La’Porsha gushed. “I hope that she allows me to see her face — I need to see the behind the scenes. I won’t take pictures, I promise! I am really excited to meet her and be around her.” Seeing Sia’s face is like a unicorn sighting, as we all know, so we don’t blame La’Porsha for having that dream.
Though La’Porsha is a frontrunner, there are several episodes left before the winner is crowned, and anything can happen by then. If she doesn’t win, La’Porsha is still confident about her future! “Just to make it as far as I have so far is a blessing. I don’t think many of us will be upset if we lose from this point,” La’Porsha admitted. “Obviously, only one person can win, but Idol is such a great platform that even being in the Top 24, there are doors that open for you from all the exposure and networking that you do…you don’t have to win the show to be successful,” she said. So true — we see that success with Adam Lambert, after all! Anyway, we’re positive La’Porsha will make it to the Top 3 at least, and we can’t wait to see her take on Sia’s songs this week!
