Scotty’s Choice – I felt like this was a good pick for him since it was more current. However, it was good but didn’t blow me away.
Jimmy’s Choice – Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not– One of my favorite performances by him so far. He owned that song and I know his little girl fans are swooning in the chat rooms right now.
Judges Choice – She Believes In Me – This was just so beautiful and moving. His voice is so pure and beautiful. I’ve been to enough concerts to know that people just do not sound that good live sometimes. *cough* Taylor Swift *cough* He’s just a natural talent to me that is going to be a huge country star. I can not wait to see him follow Carrie’s footsteps with hit after hit.
Lauren’s Choice – Wild One – I thought this song moved way too fast for her. She was breathy and it seemed like she could never catch up with it.
Jimmy’s Choice – If I Die Young. She reminded me so much of Kelly Clarkson when she was singing this one. I thought it was gorgeous.
Judges Choice – I Hope You Dance – I felt a few rough spots during that but I think she pulled out some unique moments. I’m not sure I’m with Jennifer that it was her favorite tonight but it was a good note end on. Hardy har.
Haley’s Choice – What Is and What Should Never Be – I have to admit it was fun seeing Haley sing with her dad. I felt like she had a confidence that we haven’t seen before. She’s been confident before for sure but this one seemed a more humble one, born out of comfort of being with her dad. I thought she sounded great.
Jimmy’s Choice – Rhiannon by Fleetwood Mac – I think this is in my top songs for Haley for sure. I thought it was a perfect fit for her. In fact, I think Jimmy did a fantastic job picking songs for all three of them
Judges Choice – You Oughta Know by Alanis Morrisette – This was the old Haley I do not like. The verses were insanely bad and I hated the performance aspect. Not a good way to close out the show.
Favorites: Scotty’s Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not and Haley’s Rhiannon
In trouble: I really have no clue except to say one of the girls. I still think this is Scotty’s to lose and he had 3 good and 2 fantastic performances tonight. If I were to pick, I think Lauren SHOULD leave but I WANT Haley to leave. Basically I think technically Haley can out sing Lauren any day but I think Lauren’s personality and style will take her way farther.
