Another Tuesday. Another American Idol. We're getting closer and closer to the winner being announced. Ho-hum. I'm rooting for Crystal, but I can't claim to be too worked up about the results, no matter who wins. Just not that invested.
The theme tonight is music from movies. Here we go.
Lee (Kiss From a Rose): No wow factor here. Judges didn't care for it either. Just okay, as Randy said, is how I felt. He won't get better than a 3.5 out of 5 from me.
Michael (Will You Be There): Nice but not great. Simon felt he gave it 100%. I guess. If you say so. (Out of all the awesome movie songs to choose from, I'm not getting the choices.) I'll give him a 3.8 out of 5.
Crystal and Lee duet (Falling Slowly): I liked this. Both of them on their guitars. Their voices were well-suited to the song and to each other. Judges loved it. Randy said it could be a hit on the radio right now. Simon called it, "Fantastic." Although you can't vote for a duet on the show, I'll still give it a rating. Hmm. How about a 4.7 out of 5.
Casey (Mrs. Robinson): Well, well, well. Another just okay song. I liked the sound of his voice with the ukulele, but again, it didn't blow me away. I want to be blown away and it just ain't happenin'. I'll give him a 3.6 out of 5.
Crystal (I'm Alright): Best single performance of the night by far. The judges put her "back in the game," per Simon. I didn't think she was ever out of it, but okay. Still no wow factor for me. I'll give her a 4.5 out of 5.
Casey and Michael duet (Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman): Once again, both of them on their guitars. They're voices meshed well, too. The song suited them. Very romantic. "Sultry and sexy," Randy said. I think I'll give them a tie with the other duet, 4.7 out of 5.
The two duets were the highlights of the night's performances. It'll be interesting to see who makes it through to next week. Crystal should be in the top two for sure. Of the guys? Probably Lee will hang in there, even though I gave him the lowest of the scores. Don't think he's ever been in the bottom three, has he? My guess is that Michael is in the most danger.
