Last up, it's Alexis Grace, who talks about her musician dad and her daughter.
She goes for "Dirty Diana" and immediately I am psyched because this is the first -- and only song prediction of the night I got right. Alexis has kept the "bad girl" image she acquired during semifinals, and she floods this version with soul and big notes. Skeptics might call some of the notes too exaggerated, but Alexis has serious power to her voice and brings a consistent element of personality to the stage. One of my favorites of the night.
Never miss a local story.
Kara: "You're a naughty girl and I liked it."
Paula: "Watch your over-singing."
Simon: "Very over-the-top and probably not as good as you thought it was."
Randy: "I like your attitude."
