Sophia James sang 'In My Room' from her home on this week's American Idol. I didn't love the the changes she made to it, turning it into more of a show tune. I get that she was attempting to inject some more dynamics and drama into  it to make it more up-to-date which might work for a larger audience. At least I appreciate the good taste she showed in her song selection. The young lady has shown she has a charming voice on previous installments.

I liked both versions, especially the instrumental.  I agree with krabklaw about the embellishments in the Idol version... but "less is more" probably isn't a winning strategy on those types of shows...
