Episode One was very very strong vocally I felt and whilst I have already blogged about Empire State Of Mind, stalwart Lea Michelle deserves a big up for her version of the broadway classic, ‘What I Did For Love’ – proving that, despite all the excitement focused on the amazing newbies, she’s an absolutely phenomenal performer herself, and definitely is not to be written off!
