So I missed the first ten minutes……sigh……Curse you Central Time! Oh, and for my “friend” who deleted me from FB, funny that you still come to this page!
Michael – I missed his song, but I bet it sounded great!
Didi Benami (02) – I really REALLY liked her song! She sounded on key to me and had a depth to her song. Cheers for this.
Casey James (03) – at first I was like, this song is too big for him. But when he went full voice, I was like…..Yeah, sing it brother! I love the blues feel to it and his hair looks MUCH better down than in a pony tail! 🙂 Slide guitar wasn’t that bad, either. Can I add that Ellen is HILARIOUS?
Lacey Brown (04) – so she is a church girl, huh? That’s kinda cool, actually! She has that hip hair AND can be a Christian, you know? Anyway, her singing didn’t impress me nearly as much as her story and the way she looks. She sounded……scared. But I think she has potential…..though she may have tried a bit too hard……
Andrew Garcia (05) – no guitar tonight man? But boy, do I love this man’s voice! Nice use of the voice – soft one moment, rough and full the next. The song itself…..not so much…..but I liked him very much.
Katie Stevens (06) – the story of her Grandma and her love for her touched me during the audition phase of this season. Her voice, especially for her age, impresses me. I think she did “okay” tonight….I liked her voice, but I am not sure I would sit and listen again. Maybe it was the song, I don’t know.
Tim Urban (07) – a raggae version of “Under my Thumb?” Seriously? NOT…..A……FAN. Oh, and the singing? SUCKED. Sorry. Rediculous.
Siobhan Magnus (08) – word of advice from a woman with a big nose like myself – not a good idea to put a piercing to emphasize! I have to admit, though, her voice was pretty good. Much better at the higher notes. A few pitch problems. Oh wait, I was gonna say something nice, but that screaming at the end scared the crap out of me. What the hell was THAT about?!?!!?!
Lee DeWyze (09) – I will be straight with you, this guy is not my fav. I see him, and I start by not liking him. He has a steep road to climb to impress me. But I have to tell you – I loved his song! His raspy voice was……NICE! He seemed so WITH the song, comfortable, and I really enjoyed listening to him! This was the first song I really thought “I need to vote for him” tonight!
Paige Miles (10) – another church girl – right on! I don’t have strong feelings for Paige, but I have to say, I love that she always sings songs that don’t necessarily fit the stereotype for a young black woman. And this song seemed so effortless for her. And dang it girl, she was in tune for the whole song and dammit, I think I will buy her freaking iTune song for that performance! What?!!?!!? She was struggling with her voice this week? NO WAY! Amazing. She gets my vote for SURE!
Aaron Kelly (11) – again, sorry, I can’t get past his eyebrows. When he was younger, they looked FINE! His hair looked cool tonight, though. And I resent this, but I can’t say one bad thing about his singing tonight, either. He even sounded…….gulp…….GOOD. I agree with Randy, those “tender moments” were very good. And, have I mentioned that ELLEN IS HILARIOUS?
Crystal Bowersox (12) – Another transparent moment – I love her. She is one of my favs, if not my very favorite. Her voice is so…..timeless. She could be in the 60’s a la Janice Joplin. She can be in the 90’s a la Melissa Ethridge. I could sit for hours and just listen to her. She is naturally talented and so entertaining. HER VOICE IS AMAZING. Freak. I think I want her to win, seriously. VOTE FOR HER WOULDYA? Oh, and she made the song her own, you know? I love her.
