@AndyShore I think it’s about time someone stepped up and separated themselves from the pack. Lee Dewyze started to do that last week, but it still wasn’t a performance I’ll remember forever. I don’t even remember what song he sang. Lilly Allen is my favorite from the girls. She’s the most unique Idol contestant (with talent) they’ve had in a long while. Maybe ever. I actually look forward to her performances. I also look forward to not hearing Haeley Vaughn. Siobhan Magnus is also a force to be reckoned with. That performance of “Think” was ridiculous.
8:02 Perhaps in an overdone attempt to show they don’t hate one another, Ellen is nuzzling up to Simon during the introductions.
8:03 I’m so used to each contestant being introduced with a montage, that I was taken about when Katie Stevens just started singing. I had to rewind, because I wasn’t even ready. I would have been better off missing it. This is her worst performance to date. She sounds terrible. The other girls should thank her for setting the bar so low.
8:12 Siobhan Magnus is singing “House of the Rising Sun.” I honestly can’t tell you why, but this is one of my favorite songs. I hope she lives up to the hype she created for herself. Singing the first few lines a capella was awesomely haunting. I dug what she did with it. I’ll still take the Animals version, but I’m a Siobhan Magnus fan. Ellen called her performance captivating and moving. Kara said she loved the a capella vibe. I’m so replacing Simon next season.
8:18 Lacey Brown is singing “The Story” by Brandi Carlisle. What a boring performance that was. The judges ripped her for not doing enough with the song last week, but I don’t they meant she should put people to sleep.
8:26 Kately Epperly is tickling the ivories and playing Carole King “I Feel the Earth Move.” What a vanilla cover. She did nothing with that song. She would have been better without the keys. She looks so awkward up there and her vocal performance is suffering because of it. Who says Simon is always negative. He said he liked her hair.
8:36 Didi Benami is singing “Rhiannon.” I’ve always liked her voice, but this is another boring performance. These girl don’t even sound like they want to be here. The judges may appreciate an excellent vocal performance, but the voting public isn’t going to get behind that song.
8:40 Paige Miles is yet to impress me. Tonight she’s singing “Smile” by Charlin Chaplin. Forgive me for being confused, but wasn’t he a SILENT film star? I spaced on her whole performance, just thinking about silent film stars being credited for songs. The judges shredded her.
8:49 Crystal Bowersox is singing “Give Me One Reason” by Tracy Chapman. This competition doesn’t faze her. She does her thing week in and week out. She’s got the right amount of soul, right amout of grit and hits enough of her notes. You know it’s good, when Randy repeats the same words over and over again. That was hot. That was hot. That was hot. I’m a fan. I’m a fan. That was hot.
8:56 Lilly Scott is singing “I Fall to Pieces.” She’s playing the mandolin too. She’s still par for the course. One of the top females, no doubt. She’s been so consistent, she’s gonna need to push herself to stand out.
Top 3: Siobhan Magnus, Crystal Bowersox, Lilly Scott
Bottom 2: Paige Miles, Katie Stevens
