Jac0b – There’s not much about that that I enjoyed. I wish Simon were around because I think he’d say it was a mess.
Lauren – I wasn’t a big fan of that song but I loved those high(er) notes she was busting out. More! Give us more, Lauren! And can we all just remember she is only 16? It’s so crazy.
Haley and Casey – Brilliant. I’m shocking myself to say again that I enjoyed Haley on this.
Scotty – I disagree with what they did with Scotty on this song and I disagree with the judges. Instead of stepping it up I think it sounded like he was holding back. Even physically I kept wanting him to stand! up! I’m no professional singer but I just did not hear what they heard. I mean, it was good singing but not my favorite. What’s wrong with his baritone voice? That’s what we love. A few weeks ago I though Scotty had this competition but the way James has been coming out and Scotty holding back, I don’t know.
James – Now, THAT beginning was holding back but making it more. So gorgeous, I was hanging on every single note. And that last few notes? Holy cow. It made me laugh and clap. He actually reminded me of Jon Bon Jovi tonight. That rocker singing a love song. That needs to be recorded and put in some movie.
Lauren and Scotty – I love these two. They need to make a Garth and Trisha or Tim and Faith move and just get hitched. Maybe not my favorite song ever but I loved hearing their country voices together.
Casey – I was glued to Casey just to see what he was going to do. So entertaining. Am I going to rush to download that? No. Should it on the radio? I doubt it. But it does play well to the American Idol stage and that was FUN to watch and he sounded great.
Haley – OK so I’m not on the Haley train but I think after last week and this week I’m not begging Haley to get voted off. I thought she did great and thought her voice was perfect for it.
James and Jac0b – I totally wanted to throw a T-birds jacket on James and have him take off and rock it out. I don’t think Jac0b added too much to it.
