As the Rottweiler, Chris delivered a show-stopping rendition of the song. The singer’s energetic and engaging performance instantly lit up the stage as his powerhouse voice carried the hook, “I’m alive,” to towering heights. Watch the performance HERE and reveal HERE.  

About the track, he commented, “I’ve always loved ‘Alive’ by Sia and have always wanted to cover it in some capacity. When I was trying to figure out what song I would do if I ever made it to the finale, I remember saying something about how ‘alive’ I felt when I was in the costume, and it hit me like a bolt of lightning, ‘Alive!’ That’s exactly what I feel. It says it all. That’s the song!’ There was no question. It really summed up my entire experience on the show.”

The studio version of “Alive” begins with sparse piano as Daughtry’s vocals immediately take hold on the opening line, “I was born in a thunderstorm.” The track builds into a stadium-size rock anthem upheld by a steady beat and thick guitars which adds another dimension to the original, amplifying its emotion and energy all around. “Alive” marks the first release under the band’s recently signed artist as label deal with ADA
