I have to join y'all late since Earl will NOT watch Idol, and he gets dibs on the computer room TV...
Um, Chris needs to go. He massacred a classic song.
Melinda is really good, and she really did take the song and make it hers, not just a rehash of the original artist.
Blake was OK, but I think that the song wasn't a great song to show off vocally. I think he did a good job with it, though.
LaKisha...well, I was really looking forward to seeing her since I've heard so many good things about her, but I have to agree with the judges. It wasn't a very good performance, and she was shouting it as much as singing it.
Phil, well, I think Chris should be the VFTW candidate, but he's a close second. And if this is an improvement??? :shock:
Jordin was very good. I could have sworn I heard a bad note in there, but since no one else mentioned it, I may have been hearing things.
It was a really good performance, especially since you could tell that she was choking back the tears through most of the song.
