All Together Now judges go goo goo over Gaga mashup
It was a night of colossal scores on ALL TOGETHER NOW as the acts raised the roof with electrifying performances last night.
Melbourne opera singer Jessica Boyd dazzled the 100 judges with her vocal gymnastics scoring 98 points. She left them gobsmacked after an awesome mashup of Mozart’s Queen of the Night and Lady Gaga’s Poker Face.
The 100 captain Ronan Keating was full of praise saying: “We’re ready for a voice like that!”
Her performance put her in the sing-off against Melbourne corporate singer Pam Wachira, who was only one point short of a perfect score with her rendition of Come Together by The Beatles.
The divas sung their hearts out in an epic battle with Jessica triumphant, 89 points to 73, with her moving version of All I Ask Of You from The Phantom of the Opera.
Ronan said: “You brought something different and exciting. You have talent; serious ability. I can’t wait to see what’s next!”
Jessica is hoping her unique opera pop spin will bring the genre to the masses. “I want to show that classical singers are not boring or antiquated! We are current, we are versatile, and the genre has so much to offer to a young, modern audience.”
She goes straight through to the Grand Final alongside previous heat winners - Mapoon’s Royston Sagigi-Baira and Brisbane’s Lai Utovou. Four more heats remain before our finalists battle it out for $100,000 prizemoney.
