Evanescence lead singer Amy Lee and Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale shared a video on Evanescence’s official YouTube channel in which they answered random questions before their upcoming tour together. Their answers showed that the two successful rockers have a lot in common, except for their first celebrity crush.
For those of you who may not know, Amy Lee and Lzzy Hale have been working together for quite some time now. From guest starring during each other’s live performances to supporting gender equality in the rock music industry, the duo breaks the stigma surrounding the rivalry between women musicians.
The two lead vocalists even collaborated on a track named ‘Break In,’ which was originally a track from Halestorm’s second studio album. Hale and Lee performed the song while the entire world was in lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, and their harmony was a match made in heaven.
In addition to their duet for ‘Break In,’ Lzzy Hale joined Amy Lee for the vocals of Evanescence’s third single ‘Use My Voice’ from the band’s fifth studio album, ‘The Bitter Truth,’ released in March 2021. Theyb even announced a couple of months ago that Halestorm and Evanescence will go on tour together in the Fall of 2021.
Recently, both Amy Lee and Lzzy Hale played a game called the ‘Tour Game,’ which required them to blindly pick a question from a hat and answer it without showing each other. The questions were pretty much focused on their daily life as well as touring in general. Surprisingly, the duo gave pretty close answers to each question.
At some point during the game, the musicians were asked about their first celebrity crush, which is a matter that every fan is curious about. Since they were expected to give a musician’s name, Lzzy Hale satisfied her fans’ expectations while Amy Lee gave the ‘Lord of the Rings’ star’s name.
According to Evanescence singer, she fell for Elijah Wood when she first saw him in his movies, ‘The Good Son,’ and ‘The Bodyguard’ thanks to his dove blue eyes. Being a little girl back then, Wood’s cute appearance instantly affected Lee just like many other young girls. As for Halestorm vocalist, she saw Michael W. Smith when a person gave her his CD, and she found the musician pretty charming.
Amy Lee said her choice is Elijah Wood:
“Elijah Wood but like in ‘The Good Son’ and ‘The Bodyguard.’ I remember within the same time period, I was allowed to see a rated R movie and he had these big giant blue eyes. Of course, he was 10, I was too.”
Lzzy Hale’s answer follows:
“Michael W. Smith. Somebody gave me a Michael Lovey Smith CD and there was a DVD for ‘Change Your World Live.’ I just thought he was so charming and the songs are really good.”
