Thank God that’s over

What the hell? Tonight was the worst night so far. :puking:
Let’s begin with Lisa: She went for it, and lost.
Kelli: I though she did a cute job-that said, I think she needed to pick a stronger song, looks like the judges agreed.
Ace: DROPS OF JUPITER, sorry, but I liked it, and the scar. I would have liked to have heard him sing something that showed off his range a bit more.
Taylor: Hubby and I both thought it was good. Solid. But, I’m bias when it comes to that whiskey tenor. Also the band/orchestra rocked to that song.
Mandisa: She can sing, but I didn’t care at all for her song choice or the performance.
Chris: WHAT IF. What if he wakes up with a sore throat for screaming that one out and can’t perform next week? And, is it me or is he getting a bit elitist? Big no no in my book. Methinks someone needs to smack the boy down a notch. Oh, wait a minute, Simon did that. Good Simon.
Katharine: Loved the look from the shirt up. Personally I didn’t think it was that great of a performance, sounded to me as if she were yelling the song out and getting pitchy on the high notes. But, what do I know?
Buckey: Loved the song, but not Buckey’s rendition. If he doesn’t go this week, I’m not so sure I can stomach another performance. I know that’s harsh, especially since I think he’s a great guy, just a lousy performer.
Paris: Looked good. I felt like she tried too hard. Hubby liked it, Simon agreed with me.
Elliott: OK, someone needs to tell this guy not to dance. He has no rhythm. I didn’t feel the performance. And if I’m going to be honest, I think I just don’t care much for Elliott.
Thank god it’s over.
OK, opinions? Who hits the road tomorrow night? My prediction: just about any of them.

BTW did I mention my book THE HARD STUFF has officially gone into a second printing? :woot:
Write on,

    “Buckey: Loved the song, but not Buckey’s rendition. If he doesn’t go this week, I’m not so sure I can stomach another performance.”

    Really? I thought he was decent for the first time this week. Lisa’s gone. She’s been in the bottom three over and over and this was probably her worst performance, although I don’t think she’s the worst singer.

    What bugged me about Buckey’s performance and has bugged me for awhile is his lack of diction. He slurs his words. Tonight both Paula and Simon keyed in on it.
    Not to be nit picky,the boy’s mouth needs the TLC of a good orthodontist. Once corrected his speech and singing will be hugely improved.

    First let me say CONGRATS to my sis-in-law, you go girl.

    As for AI I totally agree with everything you had to say. I loved Ace’s rendition of Drops of Jupiter (of course I love the orig.) that probably helps. I do think that either Lisa or Buckey has got to go tonight. Taylor well he is just the man (sooooo cool) and of course my fav Mandisa, didn’t care for the song choice but as the judges said the girl can sing.

    You did mention before that THS is in the second printing, but I’d say it often too. Congrats!!!!!

    Paris was fabulous!!! I think she knocked it out. I think Kellie did a great job with a not so great choice. I agree with you about Buckey’s diction, but more than that, he pretty much did a Tim McGraw imitation. As always, Taylor was wonderful.
