I'm typing this as I watch it, so here we go!
1st Song: Boring. Booohhhhrrrriinnnnggg...Ooh! Funny thing. When Paula said "You left me with a big appetite!" hubby Brandon said "That's because it didn't leave you satisfied." Ha! I laughed. I really like the song (and Duran Duran), though, so it wasn't a total waste.
2nd Song: Weird ending; one not-so-good middle note, but other than that, I really liked it! David has a fab soft voice, and a fab loud voice. I like his "opposite" songs --where it goes soft and then loud. He's so good at dynamics! This, yes, I loved.
1st Song: Agreed with Simon. Sorry. When she was doing that hip dancing on the slow part, all I could think was "You're not Tina Turner. Stop trying to win these people over just because you have sex appeal." I was so annoyed. She sang it very well. But I was annoyed to the point of looking away.
2nd Song: Eh. She's pretty good. She really is! I know this, and yet I find myself not really liking her voice --the first song was actually better. When she hits those high and hard notes...yes! Like Randy just said! When she pushes out those notes, it feels forced. She needs to do Broadway, where she can sing belt. She's a belt singer, not a ballad singer. Ah, the tears are kind of sweet, though. Okay, now they are annoying. Stop crying! Next, please! (yeah, I'm heartless).
1st Song: Not sure. Good, but kind of "I'm trying to do Reggae, and I'm failing badly." Fun, though. Simon was too harsh; I liked Jason's enthusiasm.
2nd Song: Could have been great. Good song for him, but he screwed up. Bad. Bye, Jason!
1st Song: Dude, this guy is going to win this competition. And if he doesn't, then you can all call me a liar. And an idiot. I thought this one was kind of cheesy, but his voice is just so nice. As much as I want to be annoyed with him, I can't. He's just too consistently good. The last "Stand" note was a little pinched, but other than that, the whole thing was great.
2nd Song: Elvis, eh? Okay, let's see what he's got...Okay, good start and pretty smooth...oops! One sharp note there...recovered nicely. Loved the falsetto/cracking part at the end. Made him vulnerable. David. Is. Going. To. Win.
Who should go home?
Who will go home?
David A., David C., or Sayesha. Because, once again, the universe is against me.
