Was it just me or was tonight all discombobulated? I felt like my frontrunners weren’t the frontrunners and I liked people I don’t normally like.
Scotty – I think it was clear this was one of Scotty’s weaker moments. But come on, that verse he sang waaayy doowwn there was amazing and to borrow a phrase from JLo tonight, he just has so much character to his voice. He truly is a storyteller I can visualize what he sings. I think the weak part was more the song choice than the vocals or performance. And I have to say after my tweet about it last week, I was CRACKING UP about them giving him a hard time about the flute holding.
James – I’m not sure it will be fair for me to judge this. I’m not a Muse fan. I mean, it’s not that I dislike them. I just am not that familiar with them. But whatever I heard tonight was pretty amazing. That part he sang waayy up there was craziness. Also, thank you for addressing the tail/scarf thing.
Hailey – Hold the phone, I loved Hailey tonight. And that’s saying a lot because I puffy heart that song and Adele and JLo was right, at some parts, I would say she topped Adele. Or at least gave a respectable spin on it.
Jac0b – I wish Simon was around for this. I thought it was a disaster. Even vocally I couldn’t respect what he was doing. I could barely understand the words and almost had no idea what the song was about for all his jibberish.
Casey – I love Maroon 5. I’m not sure how that’s really going to affect my opinion here except to say that was no Maroon 5. Parts of it I enjoyed but give me the original any day.
Stefano – Dude is starting to gross me out. I’m seeing now what I didn’t like is what I never liked in Adam Lambert. He’s so full of himself! Vocally, it may have been one of my favorites of his but ugh, I just can’t watch him or listen to him talk.
Lauren – Lauren is a sweetheart. I think she has the full package as far as looks, personality and voice. And that will take her far. I wasn’t giving any standing ovation for that performance but it certainly was pleasant to listen to.
Favorites: James and holy cow, I think I’m going to say Hailey
Going home: Oh please be Stefano. Since I still didn’t get that right last week (but did pick James correctly as my back up since someone is clearly voting for Stefano to save him) I’m going to go with a second again and say Jac0b.
