Real quick, I wanted to let y’all know I’m chattin’ over at Hooked on Romance today. C’mon over and say hello.
Now onto last night!
I love the Motown sound! And who doesn’t love Smokey? I met him once, yanno. In Reno at the MGM Grand, he was eating apple pie with his wife. He’s tall, and gracious.
Ok, so, my notes are sketchy, I was being lazy, but here goes!
Matt: This music genre was perfect for him. He sang Let’s Get It On, and he got it on! I really enjoyed his sound and his vibe. The judges agreed. But dayum, Paula is long winded!
Then there was Kris or Chris: He sang How Sweet It Is. It wasn’t. Sorry was not impressed. I took a pee break. I was not nearly as impressed as the judges.
Scotty: he is such a nice guy, but as he sang You Can’t Hurry Love, I realized what his predominate problem is. He has no range. Must. Have. Range. He should have gone last week and Alexis should have been singing last night. Leave it to Simon to strike swift and deadly at the heart of the matter.
Megan: poor, dear. She sang, or attempted to sing, For Once In My Life. I saw that train wreck coming when she was practicing with Smokey. I had to leave the room it sounded so horrible. If she could get votes for looking incredible she’s be the front runner, but alas she cannot. She will be eliminated tonight.
Anoop Dawg! I love this guy. He sang one of my fave Smokey songs, Ooo, Baby, baby! And oh baby baby did he nail it! One of the best last night, but not the best.
Michael should not be on the stage. But he was, and he sang…hell if I remember.
Lil Rounds sang Heat Wave, and I think she could have nailed it if she wasn’t so nervous. You could hear it in her voice. And she seemed to rush the song. She has chops as Kara likes to say and she did okay. PS, I thought she looked great!
Adam. Hot freakin’ damn! He looked incredible, and sounded, well, he is a star. I know I haven’t; had his back much, not because he can’t sing, but his look, his vibe irritates me. Last night we saw him as god created him, and wow. I. LOVED. IT! And his interpretation of Tracks Of My Tears. Holy shit! I sat there slack jawed. He is my new fave, so long as he leaves the paint off his face and fingernails.
Danny sang Get Ready. It seemed like it started too fast for me, and frankly, I was still giddy over Adam’s performance. But I did enjoy Danny’s performance.
And last but certainly not least, Allison. Boy can this girl sing. She comes alive on that stage. LOVED! Papa Was A Rolling Stone. Perfect song choice. Best female performance of the night by miles.
How’d you all like last night?
