Well, I'm not really a fan of Quentin Tarantino. How could I be? I don't watch his movies. So, I guess I have neither fan-ness or un-fan-ness. I'm a Tarantino Neutral. Like Switzerland.
Allison: Besides the fact I always thought the lyrics of this song was lame (who in the world would give up sleep just to hear someone breathing!? Get him a breathe-right-strip, already!), I think this song is kind of too low for her --which makes it kind boring, at least at the beginning. But then it got pretty cool at the end; and it just got better and better and better. Dude, she can rock!
Great job, Allison!
Anoop: Ooh! Bryan Adams! 8th grade, man, 8th grade! Those were the days...Anyway, I'm liking the different way he's taking the melody on this. Interesting how he's not taking Tarantino's advice on how to sing the song. It was kind of safe, you know? But it was in tune, it was romantic, and it was sweet! I was lookin' in your eyes, Anoop...
Ha! How hilarious that Randy just said "he was in tune" because I just said that, too! I rock, yo! I rock!
Adam: Oh, Adam. You were definitely born to be wild (*shameless giggle)! I just realized he has really white teeth. I need whiter teeth. Huh.
I'm sorry --but he is just the coolest thing ever. I would pay to go to one of his concerts just to see what he would do and I can see myself as an Adam Groupie. What is it about him that I love so much? I was so creeped out originally, and now I'm so in love with him. It's trippin' me out, this 180 degree turn of mine...
Paula's an idiot. Where does she come up with these quotes? "Look at me! I'm so poetic!"
Simon has a point.
Matt: I LOVE this song --the lyrics are amazing. I hope Matt does it justice --he's back at the piano, so it's possible, you know? Oh, crap. He went out of tune there for a second...okay...chorus coming...good! Good! The chorus is good so far --OH, NO! His voice cracked so bad and then it got worse and worse...crap! Voice cracking is NOT good.
Sigh. I've never been that impressed with Matt, and it's not working anymore, either. Poor guy.
And they are being WAY too nice to him right now. Oh, well.
Danny: Okay, people. What bugs me is that just like Scott, Danny is getting a sympathy vote. He is! He's the widower, so we're supposed to like him. I didn't say it was right --it's just what it is --and the whole love song thing, you know? Sigh.
A Harp? Okay. Oops! Didn't hit "my" on the second phrase. It's getting better...and better...ooh! Keep going, Danny! I can feel your endless love!
Oh, I got kind of teary there. I get the whole sympathy for the widower, now. Darn it.
Kris: I don't recognize this song --I'm gonna have to google it afterwards. It's kind of low...oh, it gets higher. That's good --he's better in the upper register. Oh, it's beautiful!
Not bad, Kris, not bad! I just wish it was a little bit longer --because it didn't get going enough before it ended, you know?
Lil: Oh, blah, blah, blah. This is one of my all-time favorite songs, and it sounds better sung straight. But Lil can't sing straight, you know? I mean, the Gospel turn on it isn't a bad thing --it's what she does best. But not WITH THIS SONG. It makes no sense to me. Maybe it's just my Lil prejudice comin' out? Maybe. However, she was all over the place. Nothing made sense. There was no uniformity to it and I didn't like it.
Paula, just be quiet!
Simon rocks the world. He got it right, you know? He always gets it right.
Soooooo glad my TiVo cut off in the middle of Lil's ranting...
Who will go home:
Matt or Lil
Who's the most obnoxious:
What did you think?
