The Best American Idol “Up to the Mountain” Performances

In a recent episode of American Idol, Megan Danielle chose “Up to the Mountain” for her individual Hollywood audition. She has the voice of a singer three times her age and I love it. It’s like she smokes a pack of cigarettes before each performance, a quality hard to match. Here’s her performance and then a few other past contestants singing the same song. Chime in with a comment on which is your favorite, although it’s hard to pick!

Megan Danielle (season 21)…

Crystal Bowersox (season 9)…

Jessica Cabral (season 15)…

Kree Harrison (season 12)…

Kelly Clarkson (“Idol Gives Back,” 2007)…

Honestly, it’s hard to decide my favorite between the legend Kelly Clarkson and newcomer Megan Danielle. Megan makes me think of what Brandi Carlile must’ve sounded like at 20 years old and Kelly Clarkson, well, she’s Kelly freaking Clarkson.
