I was already broken hearted last week when we lost my favourite, Drew Ryniewicz. This is a video of her first audition, when she won my heart and that of many others, I'm sure:
Tonight, in the bottom two, were Marcus Canty and Rachel Crow. Now I like Marcus Canty well enough. He has a good voice and smile. But he doesn't move me, you know?
Now Rachel, well Rachel Crow is 12 years old. This girl doesn't just sing, she sangs! She was gracious and lovely, and when she was in the bottom two tonight, she did her very best to keep her chin up and swallow her tears.
The two of them had to sing for survival, and while Marcus' performance was good, hers was phenomenal... as you can see for yourself by watching this video of Rachel's save me song "I'd rather be blind". Notice how moved Paula and Nicole seem to be.
There was an article somewhere showing her facebook page, and all of the incredibly hateful messages she was receiving. Apparently there were death threats last week with Drew, I imagine there will be more this week with Rachel. It's all a bit too extreme for my liking.
