The first boys out of the starting gate this week gave us some rather tepid performances. Not anything that made me want to cover my ears, but nothing that got me excited either.
The first good performance was David H. with Papa Was A Rolling Stone. I like this guy a lot.
The judges really liked Chikeze. I wasn’t crazy about the song (I Believe to My Soul), but his vocals were good. I would have sent him home last week. He redeemed himself somewhat with this performance, although I don’t think he’ll become a favorite.
David C. rocked it with All Right Now. He sounded good, and I liked the guitar. He looked very comfortable on the stage, too.
David A. brought the show to a close with Imagine. Wow. Take on John Lennon, why dontcha? This kid has so much talent. He made this song his own. Loved it! (Simon just said it was "risky" to do that song, so I guess he agreed with me about taking on Lennon.)
My top two: David A and David H. Off to text my votes on my iPhone.
