Tuesday night was another disappointing showing by the guys. Even worse than week 1, in my opinion. It was blah. No excitement. Nothing that made me want to ask, "Did you hear _______ last night?" Anybody could go home, if based only on this week’s performances. I think my four picks for the final six will be safe, although Phil could be in danger (not a good song choice at all). Chris S. continues to charm me with his humor. Chris R. went country, which I’m partial to; he did okay but not as good as last week. Blake did his boppin’ rappin’ whatever, and I grow tired of it. He has a good voice and I would love to hear him use it more. Sanjaya should go home, but who knows what the voters will do? Too many vote for reasons other than singing. I would choose to send either Jared or Sundance home with Sanjaya.
I approached Wednesday’s performances with anticipation. I was not disappointed. Jordin kicked it off with a lot of power. It wasn’t my favorite vocal of hers, but it beat the guys by a mile. Sabrina was great; I agree with Simon that she needs to choose songs that let her personality comes through, but what a voice! Antonella was off-key as often as she was on. (Please, America, send her home. She is way out of her depth here and doesn’t even realize it.) Hayley was wobbly and I think in danger of going home; rightly so, I think. Stephanie didn’t impress me as much tonight, but even so, she was good. Lakisha took on a Whitney tune (from The Bodyguard movie), and I’ve got to say, she was up to it. Gina? Well, she mostly shouted her song, but at least she brought lots of energy. Melinda finished out the hour and did a F-I-N-E job with I’m a Woman. I do love this gal. Simon said, "You’re a tiger. I thought we had a pussycat." LOL! After tonight, I would choose to send home Antonella and Hayley.
So we shall see what happens tomorrow night.
