Naima Adedapo: Dancing in the Street, On the Stage

by at . Comments

Make it your own. Do something unique. Put a fresh twist on it.

How often have we heard American Idol judges utter these words to contestants over the years? Considering such requests, Naima Adedapo put on one of the most impressive performance of last night with "Dancing in the Streets."

She incorporated horns and percussion instruments and broke it down at one point with her own style of moving and shaking. There was a tribal element to the rendition, helping it stand out and leading to the following critique from Randy:

"Finally, tonight, all of Naima showed up - the girl that loves all the African dance... the reggae girl... the singing. Everything was very smart that you did."

Do you agree?

I was under the impression this was a singing competition instead of dancing...silly me.
It seems she's trying so hard to bring diversity that she forgot to bring her best vocals. I think there were far surperior vocal performances in the night.

No! I didn't enjoy the performance at all. I thought her voice was off and the tribal dance just didn't fit. I like her, but feel she is not strong enough vocally compared to the others.
