Seattle's Pride Idol: Round Three

Seattle's Pride Idol: Round Three by Shaun Knittel - SGN Staff Writer

2010 SOAP PRIDE IDOL
RPLACE
SUNDAYS THROUGH JUNE 20


Welcome back, Seattle Out and Proud (SOaP) Pride Idol fans. Week three was, by far, packed with the most diverse and talented bunch yet. Seven contestants sang, danced, and charmed their way onto the R Place stage to compete for a spot in the Wild Card and Finals round to become Seattle's next Pride Idol.

The show got off to a great start as drag queen Tory Marchella entertained the audience was some serious sass as she worked it - not once, but twice - in order to warm the audience up for the night's competition.

This week, the usual suspects - Andrew Miller, Sister Domine Trix, and yours truly - returned to offer constructive criticism. We were joined by a very special guest judge - the incomparable Alice Stuart, a blues legend in the Pacific Northwest - for a memorable night of laughter, vocal talent, and Pride!

It's not easy to go first, but contestant number one, Ului Teulilo, made it appear so as he belted Billy Paul's "Me and Mrs. Jones." Ului clearly set the tone for the evening as a hush fell over the audience; the whole of R Place was hanging on his every word.

Yee-Shin Huang, contestant number two, sang "Down" by Jay Sean (featuring Lil Wayne) in true pop music fashion. Yee-Shin had great energy as he stripped himself of the blazer he was wearing and began rapping.

Ryan McCabe, the night's Wild Card Round winner, performed George Michael's "Freedom 90" while wearing a Bette Midler T-shirt. He went out into the audience sang his heart out.

Jacquelynne Rose turned R Place into a teen pop music set as she sang Miley Cyrus' "Party in the USA." Contestant number five, Raymond (last name withheld), also offered a pop tart, as he used every inch of R Place's dance floor (and stripper pole) to perform Britney Spears' "I'm a Slave for You."

Contestant number seven, Cassidy Katims, brought the mood down for the lovers in the house as he crooned to the audience with Michael Bubble's "Home."

The highlight of the night (other than Sister Domine Trix's India-inspired outfit with glitter - lots and lots of glitter) was contestant number six. Returning from week two's shocking upset (where the instantly popular Pablo took first place), I am happy to report that Elisha Anderson won ... At Last!

Singing the hell out of the famous Etta James ballad, Elisha brought the capacity crowd to their feet as she nailed each and every note and finished as strong as she started. Elisha won over even the toughest of critics (cue Andrew Miller, "You'd better impress me!") by flawlessly covering one of the greatest songs ever penned. Make no mistake, Seattle: Elisha is, thus far, the one to beat.
