    Someone should've done "I Touch Myself" by the Divinyls.

    Someone doesn't know what one-hit wonder means. Loved Keith's comments.

    Wait, I agree with Keith that we need more current songs. But good heavens, MacArthur Park is a thousand times worse than Emotion.

    I hate to say it, but I'm agreeing with Jimmy.

    The thing about one hit wonders from the last 8 years; most of the songs are hip hip, techno or dance pop.

    I do not want to hear anyone sing "Barbie Girl".

    I am not understanding this game of one hit wonder. The song should not be considered a one hit wonder if it was a hit for another group/band/performer.

    I do like that song, it's very campy. But I can't see it being song on serious singing competition show.

    can we have a definition of one-hit wonders? I might define it by some of these

    I wish Kree would have chosen a country song to sing.

    aqua also had a minor hit with "back from mars" that i think could be slowed down a touch and work in this format

    Is Angie going to sing the Final Countdown by Europe. Or maybe Round and Round by Ratt.

    Yes, please! I can't believe I liked at her at the start of the season. Her blatant bias is so irritating. Simon was biased as well, but at least it was humorous when coming from him.

    I can't get over how defensive the judges were when Jimmy disagreed with them.

    And now for the most current song: "Cry Me A River". Isn't this song from the 50's?

    Angie does not have the voice/passion to sing this song.

    This is a torch song, not a cotton candy so about teenage love lost.

    It was a little Beyonceish. What a boring night.

    Going through that list, Kree could have killed "Sunny Came Home."


    Not surprisingly, they loved Angie.

    I thought Angie was the weakest of all 4.

    Yep, I don't know what the judges are watching. Candice and Kree all the way for me, although I liked Angie's first song. And singing Adele with Kree just highlights all of Amber's flaws.

    ETA: the drums win the night.
