So, tonight was interesting, mostly boring…but thankfully sprinkled with a few rays of sunshine.
It was sing a Michael Jackson song tonight. I love the old MJ. But tonight? Yikes, there were some bad renditions.
Lil Rounds sang The Way You Make Me Feel. You could tell she was nervous. I didn’t care for the way she dressed, it, um really accentuated her round. Okay, so the performance didn’t make me feel too good, but, she was nervous and I know she can do better. I hope she makes it through. I’m sure she will. I totally disagreed with Randy. It wasn’t that good. Kara too. And then there is Paula. Did she rip that shirt off from Bjork? And Simon of course hated what she was wearing too!
Scott MacIntyre sang Keep the Faith: Started out strong. He’s much better sitting at the piano. But, his voice just seems to have weakened since Hollywood week. My sil said, “I think someone should help him out with his hair.” I think someone needs to help him with his vocals. It was ho-hum to me. Is it me, or does Kara have on a lot of makeup tonight? Kara and Paula are on crack. Simon is right, “Don’t be artistic on this show.” And Dawg was in the right corner. Frankly, Scotty hasn’t really impressed me with this performance or the one that got him there.
Danny Gokey sang PYT. Finally, something good. He really does have a good voice. Like Daughtry, even a bad night is a good one. And this was not a bad night. Great vocals. God, Paula is annoying and wearing too much makeup. lol what Simon said about Danny’s hideous dancing. I thought his jacket was hideous. So, it’s unanimous. All the judges loved him. Gotta go with the flow.
Michael Sarver sang You Are Not Alone. I love this song! I think he picked a good song for his voice. But he seemed to over sing it. Doesn’t matter, he’ll go through to next week. I figure he’ll be gone in a few weeks though. He doesn’t have the chops to hang in. And he kind of sorta fell apart. That music sounded like racket in the background. Sigh. Okay he’s wrapping up, it was pretty bad imho. I knew Simon wouldn’t like it, but he was right on about Mike giving it 110%. My question is, since when does Simon score points for that? I’m glad Randy liked it even though I disagree. And the girls? Gah, Kara. and I am officially sick of Paula.
Jasmine Murray sang I’ll Be There, another fave of mine. She is so pretty. So is her family. I’d have liked to see her sing something more contemporary, she always picks mature songs. She was pitchy but it wasn’t bad. Enough to get her though, I think. Kara was too generous, and so was Randy. Paula’s babbling actually made some sense. Simon wasn’t excited, and I totally agree with little girl wanting to be grown up. Sigh. Didn’t we all when we were 17?
Chris Allen sang Remember the Time. Ouch. But he’s cute. I don’t like this at all. What’s up with the sound tonight? It sounded like it was fading in and out. I’m bored, and so too will be Simon. Coz, I really don’t care what the other judges think. Ok, Kara is becoming Paula’s mini me. And Paula is on drugs. Her voice was shaky all night, and then of course her rambling, blah blah blah. Hmm, Simon was pretty mild in his criticism. And I agree, Chris should have left the wife in the closet. He could have garnered a few more votes.
Allison Iraheta sang, I forgot the title, but she did a fabulous job! She is most def in the hunt! Love her sound and vibe. She’s very defined in herself. My fave so far. Good job. Oh, and I love her humility. All the judges agreed, the girl has natural talent.
Anoop Dawg Desai! sang Beat It. LOL, I would not have picked it for him. As Simon would say, and prolly will say, “A rather karaoke performance.” Ok, so not the best, but I like this guy. Wow, Paula said she didn’t like something. Simon was correct about Anoop not being aggressive.
Jorge Nunez sang Never Can Say Goodbye. Not bad. He wasn’t pitchy. I agree with Kara, She’s Out of My Life would have been a good choice. Yowch, what Simon said.
Megan Corkrey sang Rockin’ Robin. She looks too damn cute in her little red dress. Ok, so there were some problems but her personality dominated. Bad song choice, and not the best performance, but I really like her voice and what she did with it. Paula is annoying as usual. And Simon, double yowch. I mean I know where he’s coming from, but I think Chef Ramsey was great
Adam Lambert sang Black or White (is that correct?). Ok, so ever since I saw the twitter pic of Adam sticking his tongue down another guy’s throat, I can’t take him seriously. Not thrilled with the performance but I guess it was a hit with the audience and dumb dumb Paula. Is she trying to take over the judging table? Egads! She stuttered and stammered all over him. Simon, do something please. Please. Triple Egads, he liked him too! Banging head on laptop.
Matt Giraud sang Human Nature. I liked it. A lot. See? He stuck with what he does best. Sigh. 🙂 We all loved it! The judges better too. Ok, whew, Dawg, Kara, and of course Paula, who doesn’t she like? Simon liked it too.
Alexis Grace sang Dirty Diana. She is too damn cute! And wow. What a performer. Looks great, struts the stage great and has a voice all wrapped into a to-die-for package. Ok that very last note was bad but she did great! I did not agree with Simon. My daughter thought she, ‘killed it’ in a good way, so did I. That’s why they pay me the big bucks!
New rules tomorrow night? Maybe no more Vote For the Worst having a say? I want the judges to have a say!
Okay, so thoughts?
