This Heather’s got a new candy store! Alice Lee, who recently departed the hit off-Broadway production of Heathers at New World Stages, has just competed on the new ABC series Rising Star. The singing competition show takes place live as viewers vote in real time during performances. In this clip, Lee chats with host Josh Groban about her musical theater journey, and then knocks Lady Gaga’s “You and I” out of the park. And even though judge Ludacris voted yes, he admitted some skepticism that obviously rubbed us the wrong way: “You brought a little too much of the Broadway and the musical theatre aspect here.” Come on, Ludacris. Theatricality (and a healthy vibrato) is what makes great singing. We wonder what Betty Buckley would have to say about that. Tune in to Rising Star to keep hearing Lee sing, and check out her awesome vocals on the Heathers cast recording!
