Favorite Performances from Hawaii?

Recommended Posts

While the Hawaii round has sort of lost it's full magic at this point since this will be the 5th year of performances there, I do find that the beautiful setting allows some performances to shine more than they usually would. Whether it be intimate ballads cast along the fading sunset, or uptempo performances that light up the coast. What are some of your favorites from over the years? 

 

My Top 10 (in order of season)

- Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon's "Landslide" 

- Laci Kaye Booth's "Georgia On My Mind" 

- Uche's "Play That Funky Music" 

- Just Sam's "Como La Flor" (probably my favorite on this list - the best example of a contestant using Hawaii to their full advantage) 

- Emyrson's "Angels Like You" 

- Kenedi Anderson's "Human" 

- Nicolina's "Elastic Heart" 

- Olivia Soli's "Emotions" 

- Nutsa's "Paris (Ooh La La)" 

- Nailyah's "Lovin' You"

My favorite from Hawaii was Just Sam’s “Como La Flor”.  I had a Selena record and that song was on it.  That’s why I loved seeing Just Sam sing it.
