Lil Rounds: I love her. The only problem with this song, though is that she sang it at the same dynamic marking (loud) throughout the whole thing. Which kind of made it boring after a while. However, she still rocks! As I said, I love her.
Scott MacIntyre: I love piano + singing. And he did pretty good! I didn't like his middle high note, though --it was a tad...screechy. But it wasn't bad. Wasn't bad. Holy crap!? He just learned that on the piano!?
Yeah, he's got talent.
Danny Gokey: I'm feeling stupid because this is now the second Michael Jackson song I don't know. Sigh. But Danny sounds fabulous! He's awesome on stage and he makes me smile. I love Danny! He's just great. Really, really great --and I agree with Paula; he will probably be in the Final Three.
Michael Sarver: I didn't really like him in the middle rounds, and I feel the same way. I think he's a little too affected when he sings --but it could just be difference in taste. I mean, he sang it in tune and had good big notes, but for some reason I'm just not impressed. So it could just be me. Yeah, it probably is...
Jasmine Murray: Why is she wearing a nightgown? Hmmm...but anyway, she picked a song that was way to big for her. Because although this is a Michael Jackson song, we think of Mariah, right? She was flat on two of the really big notes --but her ending note was really pretty. So...I would say she was...okay. But I don't do well with big songs that are flat. Sorry, Jasmine.
Kris Allen: I like his voice --but I'm thinking his guitar is not exactly in tune with the rest of the band. Seriously, something is off --but his singing is pretty good. I like his energy --but it still wasn't my favorite. Meh. It was okay.
Allison Iraheta: I love this girl --and I have from the moment I heard her. Maybe it is her rocker voice? I mean, she's got this husky thing going on and I love it! And it's CRAZY that she's only 16, because unlike Jasmine, she's not "trying" to act older --she just is who she is and there's nothing precocious about it. I really like her! She's fabulous!
Until the cutting remark...whoah! Yeah, follow Paula's advice, Allison, and Be Quiet. Oops!
Anoop Desai: Ooh, Anoop! Okay...He's doing pretty good! Except...he's running out of breath a little bit. Maybe he should do some cardio, eh? But I liked it! Because I love Anoop. I'm loyal! And I it was pretty good --not bad. I wish he could have been a bit louder at parts, though --and I'm thinking he could have if he didn't move around so much. But I love you, Anoop!
Jorge Nunez: I really like his voice --it's very smooth, and I think he did a great job! It started off kind of creepy-sexy-I'm-undressing-you-with-my-eyes, but it got better as it went on. I liked the end a lot. Not bad, eh? Not bad.
Megan Corkrey: I still hate those hips, but man, I love her voice. Very interesting song choice --and you can tell what kind of artist she'll be. And I love the variations she puts on songs --she's so unique! And I LOVE it. The caw-caw at the end was kind of trippy, but man, that last big note was awesome. Loved it. Love her. Even with all the wiggling!
Adam Lambert: Eh. I don't know. I still think he's kind of creepy-weird. But hey, he's got passion and inflection and the rockin' down. He also definitely knows who he is. But I just don't get it --or him. I feel like there's way too much contradiction about him, like he can't make up his mind whether he wants to be all theater-crazy or rocker-mosh-pit. Like he was schizophrenic or something. Does that even make sense? Probably not. I guess I'm in the minority that finds him kind of annoying. Is that wrong? If so, then I don't wanna be right.
Matt Giraud: Okay, now I remember that I HATED his first song, but I LOVED his second. And holy crap! He plays the piano?! Awesome! Okay, now this performance reminds me of his...second performance. As in, I didn't hate it! In fact, it wasn't bad --although that falsetto ending was not my favorite. Meh. But he did well! Two good performances in a row have made me forgive him for that Coldplay one...
Alexis Grace: The beginning tempo was kind of off --the verse was slightly behind the band, but man, this girl can blow! I've loved her since I first heard her, too, though --and she's really good. However, that guitar solo really overshadowed her at the end and kind of screwed her over, and the ending note was kind of...meh. But overall, I think she did a great job!
Who's going home:
Michael, Jasmine, or Jorge
Will I be right?
