Hey… My name is Samantha and I’m Eddie Davenport’s daughter. The performance on Monday evening was amazing. From The MC Jill Wagner (who is wonderful and down to earth) to Richard Marx giving an impromptu performance with the acoustic guitar. Each finalist did an amazing job and they all should be VERY proud of themselves!
