The Passion's Jesus Tackles Creed's 'With Arms Wide Open' — Grade It

Scott Stapp may not have been present at the original Last Supper, but the Creed singer’s words rang strong during Fox’s live-ish retelling of Jesus’ final days on Earth.

A quarter of the way through Fox’s production of The Passion: New Orleans on Sunday, Jesus (played by Jencarlos Canela) assembled his apostles for one final meal — catered by The Chew‘s Carla Hall, apparently — during which he serenaded them with a lulled rendition of “With Arms Wide Open.”

Jesus’ pals appeared to enjoy the slowed-down version of the 2000 chart-topper, even that no-good Judas (played by that very-good Chris Daughtry).

Video of Canela’s performance will be posted when it becomes available. In the meantime, grade the song below and drop a comment with your thoughts on tonight’s production.
