    Angie is going to be a pop star. She just has it, IMO. Not the best vocals in the world but certainly a competent singer. Not that A+ vocals are required to be on radio these days.

    I did have to giggle when she said she thinks she could sing this song as well as Kelly. Maybe she had a shed of hope but only because Kelly was deathly ill and had almost no voice during that show and she STILL sounded amazing.

    Wow, Candice! Killing it. A little shouty but that's how the song is. Amazing, she just topped Jordin, easily.

    Weee, another Kelly song! I am trying to think what Lazaro would pick. Hmmm, a classic probably is something from the show? This is tough. If it was from her catalogue I would guess something like Already Gone but from the show I am having a hard time thinking of something, maybe Stuff Like That There?

    ETA: Oh...Breakaway. It is easy to sound really off on this song...

    He is messing up the lyrics for sure but nothing noticeable unless you're a Kelly freak.

    Lazaro can't help the stutter but I feel so bad for him when they make him speak live on the air. Hopefully he doesn't care anymore but I would hate for him to dread having to speak every time he is on air.

    If Kree did "I Know You Wont" then I would just die but I think, from the way Ryan worded it, she is doing a song from Carrie's Idol days.

    Lazaro is a handsome lad. I can really see that this evening.
    But his singing is not up to the standard of the other finalists...I'm sorry.

    OMG, Kree, that tone is beautiful. She would have killed during the 80s and 90s on country radio. Not her best but still easily one of the best singers in this competition.

    Angie just lost my vote. I was already thinking she is a tad arrogant but saying you can sing Kelly's signature song as good as Kelly was completely OTT.

    I didn't really like her version at all. It was one of Jordin's better performances but I think Haley Reinhart topped Jordin by a mile. Candice was a distant 3rd IMO - I usually like Candice much better than I did tonight.

    Of the guys I like Devin the most. The song was a little dreary but he sang it well or maybe it's just that I love his voice.

    Yeah, very dumb thing of Angie to say. Whatever she thinks about her ability, she needs to keep it to herself.

    I still don't get the judges' big love for Angie. I also think that Nicki is smoking something.

    I also didn't understand why it was Kree and Paul that Jimmy picked to talk to about oversinging. Neither one of them would be the first contestant I'd think of when I thought of oversinging.

    The great:

    Candice, I Have Nothing - Wow...just WOW!

    Devin, Temporary Home - so many of the singers this year have such wonderful control (Burnell, Amber, Kree)...it seems like they've had many, many years of vocal training. Such flawless vocals. (Well, except for that last note for Devin, but it wasn't awful.)

    The good:

    Kree, Crying - Wish she had done a different song. Sounded a little strained at time, but she really does have a great voice.

    Amber, A Moment Like This - Also a bit strained at time, but she certainly has the chops!

    Burnell, Flying Without Wings - Only a great vocalist can make me enjoy listening to pablum like this dreck. He really is an artist...but about two-thirds of the way through it was too high or something for him and it sounded a bit rough.

    Paul, Amazed - Boy, do they ever sh** all over this guy. Too theatrical? Like Adam Lambert was Mr. Subtlety?? Pop music has always had over-the-top performers, going all the way back to Elvis. Lady Gaga is a current example of somebody who is very theatrical and all her tour dates are SRO.

    The okay:

    Angie, I Surrender - :huh: Did the judges hear something different that I did? This one was way beyond her reach. Girl needs to be more aware of her limitations!

    The bad:

    Janelle, Gone - Hope she is...soon. There were a few good moments, but more bad ones. Wonder how long the country voters will keep her around... :(

    Lazaro, Breakway - Some decent moments, but he's surrounded by some amazing vocalists, so he really pales in comparison.

    Curtis, I Believe - :eek: Whu huppuned?? As much as I dislike him as a person, he really is a very good vocalist. It's like they changed the key on him at the last moment and he had to wing it in a key that did not work for him at all. It was almost painful to listen to at times although he did everything he could to sell it. I just can't imagine anyone buying, though!

    I do think Paul is usually too theatrical but I don't know why they never mention that about Curtis. Paul reined it in last night during the first half of the song but towards the end I thought he got too theatrical again. Also, I thought Jimmy had lost his mind when he implied that KREE can be too theatrical. WTF???

    Lyndsey Parker (Reality Rocks) mentioned in her column today the Curtis has a police record - she said the news broke yesterday before the show. (http://www.mjsbigblog.com/american-idol-12-curtis-finch-jr-has-an-arrest-record.htm) Did any of you know this? It was news to me.

    Maybe on AI, theatrical is a synonym for "with pulse"? :p

    As for Curtis, I also just found out. This was posted at votefortheworst.com:

    Someone posted this in response:

    Sad, but true and :lol: all at the same time....!

    I'm not watching right now, but if I had to wager a guess, it would be Jimmy Iovine, head of Interscope. Unless they've brought on another middle-aged douchenozzle who has a surgically attached baseball cap :p.

    If Devin goes home I swear I'm done with this show for LIFE... I know Devin's song choice was bad but if he's out first I'm done... and I will encourage everyone else to boycott it

    Let Curtis go. If he had chosen a different song, perhaps I might be more sympathetic, but if he's going to torture me with R. Kelly again, he doesn't deserve to be saved. :scream:

    I'm glad Devin is safe, but I'd much rather see Lazaro go than Curtis...Curtis was not my favorite per se, but a much better singer than Lazaro.
