OK, so AI was interesting tonight. I’ve been a bit under the weather lately and watching tonight really took my mind off not feeling well. So, first of all: Mandisa. she looked gorgeous and sang as good as she looked.
Buckey: I was with Simon 100% tonight (not that I’m usually not), but Buckey Boy is going home.
Paris: Thumbs down for her rendition of FEVER. FEVER one of my favs and she’s too young to carry off such a sultry tune. That said, her vocals were excellent.
Chris: WALK THE LINE, another one of my favs, I love Johnny Cash, grew up to my daddy playing the guitar and singing IF I WERE A CARPENDER. I loved Chris’s soulful rendition.
Katharine: Looked good, sang good, performance was, eh. She’s going to have to crank it up real high to be in the final three.
Taylor: Love this guy. I’m so glad he finally let someone clean up that mop, and his suit was perfect. Barry labeled him a ‘whiskey tenor’, a most befitting tag. I expect to see Taylor in the final three.
Lisa: Lousy outfit, but, she is adorable. Her performance was solid and boring.
Kevin: CL redeemed himself tonight. He done good, for him. He’ll be back next week, unfortunately.
Elliot: not feeling the look, didn’t like the song or the performance. For me his least impressive performance thus far. I totally disagreed with all three judges regarding his performance tonight.
Kelli:First impression, wipe off that heavy makeup. She looked like a little girl gone wild in mommy’s makeup bag. Loved the outfit. I thought she sounded better with Barry-but-she was pretty gutsy to go up to the judges and sing. I thought she finished strongly, and also, sigh, showed her lack of brain matter there in the end during discussion time. I WANT HER TO BE SMARTER!
Ace: Finally! a button up shirt. His singing was a bit pitchy. Ya know, I find myself every time he gets ready to perform, tensing up. I’m afraid he’s going to make a fool out of himself somehow. I can’t really explain it. I don’t want him to look foolish. He was definitely stronger this week. Not, amazing as Paula said. God I just want to smack her sometimes. Ace will be back next week.
So there it is. I’m dying to hear your take.
