LEE: “The Letter” – great pick for his voice fo sho. Love having the horn section up there. I can’t tell if he’s going to turn into Taylor Hicks or Jay Leno. Looks a little bored, and he’s just telling everyone that this is the top of his range.
PAIGE: “Against All Odds” – If you have problems with pitch, don’t start sitting down! Seriously, if she doesn’t go home tomorrow night I’ll eat my hat. I understand why Simon thinks she has so much potential, but it just isn’t showing up.
TIM: “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” – is the name of the Disney movie he’ll be starring in later next year. I mean Paige was worse, but this was hardly singing. He was just placing his voice at the note. And his elbow never unlocked.
AARON: “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing” – Again, I think he’s getting better and better. Give him some pitch problems due to illness, and he’s still miles ahead of the previous two. I’d like to hear him “bubblegum-ify” other Aerosmith tunes.
CRYSTAL: “Me & Bobby McGee” – Finally, a Janis song! The last half of this song was awesome.
MICHAEL: “When a Man Loves a Woman” – good, predictable a bit, but he was the most polished he has been so far.
ANDREW: “I Heard it Through the Grapevine” – Hey, remember when he sang “straight up?” Seriously, what is this guy doing here. I think he sold me a cell phone accessory last week.
KATIE: “Big Girls Don’t Cry” – I want to like her, but this is Karoake. Didn’t like it.
CASEY: “Power of Love” – I’m digging this. It’s not a vocal prowess song, but he nailed it, and took some risks to go this arena pop with his selection. I approve.
DIDI: “You’re No Good” – She’s ready for her Desperate Housewives cameo… Smokin’ hot. Loved it.
SIOBHAN: “Superstition” – Best quote of the night: “I think it’s so wicked cool that she said that my voice had swagger.” Holy crap it’s 1983. She’s still got the pipes but she is bringing an unwanted comparison to Sheena Easton with that hair and outfit.
There are probably three different people who should go home and who I would prefer not to see anymore, but if it isn’t Paige I’ll be so surprised. But then I said that a couple weeks ago.
