Why is Randy comparing Paul to Ray L in terms of making a song his own? Ray records original material.

Randy is clueless as usual. You still have to sing the damn song on key and on the beat while "making it your own."

I do wish they'd let the contestants play instruments. Then Paul could stop staggering around the stage.

I was going to say, I have actually been rather enjoying how the lack of instruments has been putting the focus back onto the vocals. As much as I loved Crystal and other who used instruments very effectively in the past, I think too many people used it as a crutch to hide behind and it made a lot of the shows a bit boring and one-dimensional. Although maybe they could let them use instruments a few weeks every now and then, if they feel it will showcase them in a better light.

Did she just forget the lyrics in one part? Either that or she needs to enunciate better.

And she was just flat on the high note.

Ok scratch the perfect for her part :P

Can someone tell Thia that "I Will Always Love You" is a Dolly Parton song? Thanks.

Also, "Colors of the Wind." Nice, but zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

I don't think Paul's pitch problems were as big as Naima's.

Thia definitely was better in terms of pitch. But, dang, she's going to bore me to tears by the time she gets the boot. I don't like the pageant style dress either.

Apparently, someone passed Randy a clue.

She also thought that Smile was a Michael Jackson song.

I think Tim Urban may have hid behind the guitar a little, but I don't think Crystal used it as a crutch. You can both play well and sing well. I think the solution to the problem of singers possibly using instruments as crutches is to call them out on it when they aren't doing much other than strumming a few chords. And it's kind of a handicap for singers who are used to playing an instrument on stage to suddenly be up there without one. It's a totally different way of handling the stage.
