Every one's favorite performance is finally here and it doesn't disappoint in the slightest. It's the most popular Maria performance watched online, and there's a good reason for it. It's just the way she sings the words. If any of the other girls sang it, it just wouldn't be the same. Her voice has such a beautiful tone to it that it's hard to compare it to anything. All I can think of is as church bell; it has that beautiful harmonious charm to it and it never wavers.

It's also this unexplained emotion she puts into her voice when she sings. I can't put my finger on it but it's almost depressing. Which I mean in the best way; I love my ballads very emotional.

Songbird starts off with a practice with Andrew where she sings a lyric to him. That line is amazing! I rewind it so many times it's embarrassing to say. "Cause I feel that when I'm with you!" I love the way she sings "that," she sounds even better without a band to back her also.

But with the band, the performance is stunning. All she needs is her voice, no male dancers, and no choreography is needed. Some points of the song to watch out for that I like myself are "I'd never be cold," and the ending is my favorite part of the song. The bands stops and it's just her voice singing "like never before." It's just unbelievably beautiful, there's really no more that I can say. Beautiful really does say it all.

Even Andrew could hardly breathe after it! I think she was purposely put last to end the show, and the panel had comments I actually wish were better; as funny as that sounds. She got great praise but it still felt like a slap in the face. "You could be my mar-...leading lady any day baby, you so could." What's that John? Huh? ....No I'm just kidding, no hard feelings John! She got great comments, even from Andrew! "This is the night that the porcelain doll becomes flesh and blood." Even though she's always been human and he was too daft to notice until this episode, I still loved that line!

Her constant "Thank yous" were so cute as well, I don't even blame her for giving a mountain full of grins. The whole thing seemed kind of overwhelming for her, or maybe she was giving that great sigh of relief that it went so well. It really was her night after all, she also was chosen to sing with the children and during So Long, Farewell, her voice was heard above all the others easily.

Watch Songbird!


PS: Awww bless her for thinking of her Grandma:)))
