These girls sure know how to put their own spin on stuff. They followed up their first round acoustic cover of Party Rock Anthem with an equally creative mash-up of Want U Back and What Makes You Beautiful in the finals.
“I’m on the edge of my seat wondering what these three will come up with. Creativity catches my ears so I’m definitely amused. Well executed as well.” – Darren Ashley

Comments poured in on YouTube in response to Natallie’s original composition, June 18, dedicated to her late father. Many were moved not only by the meaning of the song, but by her soul-baring delivery as well.
“What a heartfelt rendition of a beautiful song. Great vocals. Thanks for sharing something so special with us. Not sure if such a vulnerable act would be appreciated on the Urbanscapes stage as a standalone song, though.” – Juwita Suwito

“(Lead vocalist) Jared’s chilled out, beachy, Jason Mraz-ish vibe is cool. I wanna see Jared work more on his vocals and diction and hit the right notes so when he harmonizes with Ryan, it will sound even more sweet! Good luck guys!” – Nadhira Nishaa
