those of you who dont like lazaro must not get non threatening boys magazine
They're blinded by her beautiful long legs? Honestly, I do think that a big reason they like Amber is because they think she's got a marketable look.
every week im completely surprised her name is amber, i find her very competent but totally forgettable
She's so low key, but I just love Kree's voice. It's beautiful.
kree has the ability to make me love songs i have always hated
This Garth Brooks song always makes me
This song is a heart-tugger.. The Dance by Garth Brooks
i dont know this song either mimi. but i'm glad it's over.
Okay not so when Janelle sings it.
Garth Brooks' video to it, makes me
It's a beautiful song, you should listen to it and the lyrics are just so good.
god damn it candice you just kicked that song in the ass, grabbed it by the throat and strangled the life out of it
I'm bowing at home.
Candace did a freaking Cure Song and TORE IT UP!!!!
Candice blew them all away.. Can't believe that Lazarro guy is still in it.. like a different class to the girls singing abilities.. in general all the girls are very good and I wouldn't go nuts as long as one of the women win.. talent wise it should be Candice hands down.. but it American 'idol' not American 'talent'.. either way even if she doesn't win she is going to have an amazing career.. and I love her lipstick.. just had to add that
Mariah showered her with glitter and Candace deserved it.
I don't think I"ve ever heard a Cure song on the AI.
Candace is an ARTIST.
Candice's style of singing is not my thing, not by a long shot, but ho-lee sheeeyett, she blew the goddamn roof off with that rendition of Lovesong.
If there is some sort of merciful deity out there, Lazaro will be riding home on the bus that ran repeatedly (and deservedly) over him tonight. He was just dreadful .
Angie/Amber/Janelle are all pretty much "interchangeable meh" at this point.
Candice was supernatural.
I'm hoping Lazaro would be in the bottom just to see if the judges would use the 'save' on him, since this is the last week to use the save.
Candice and Kree are way above the others, IMO. Add me to the list of those who doesn't get the OTT praise that Amber receives. She's good and all but I thought her first performance was only ok, not anything to deserve Nicki's "you are my favorite girl!"
Lazaro needs to go. It is painful to watch him while the judges tear his performances apart (deservedly so). I just get really bad second hand embarrassment.
I'm not really a country fan but Kree is my favorite. I just love the low-key way she sings. She's not bombastic or diva-like in the least. Her first song was miles better than Jackie DeShannon's version. When that song came out I thought it was kind of boring and sing-songy but Kree made it beautiful. And her 2nd song brought tears to my eyes. I've never heard it sung with so much longing.
Candice was phenomenal in her 2nd song. I thought Kree took the 1st round & Candice took the 2nd. I actually like Amber a lot, in fact, much better than Angie. I really liked her 1st song although she's had better nights. My favorite of her performances are "She's Leaving Home" & "Lately".
CANDICE!!! She is a goddess. What an amazing rendition of "Love Song"!!! Far and away my favorite contestant.
You know what, I think Lazaro was SO BAD that the judges wouldn't even use the save on him during the final week of its use. How in the world they would work that out, I have no idea (it would cause the show to finish a week early so they would have to plan something for a week - Idol Gives Back? - not that you can plan that in a matter of 2 weeks, though), but I am telling you, there will be absolute hell to pay if they use it on him. I bet it is a much smaller percentage of the viewers voting for him, it's just that the ones who are happen to be 12 year old girls who power dial the entire time.
I know Idol likes to brag about their 56 million votes cast but should the object be to receive the most number of votes or just to receive the highest percentage of approval from viewers? They need to seriously consider limiting the voting amounts.
Candice ... there are no words to describe how unbelievable that last song was.
And, if anyone other than Lazaro goes home this week, it's just WRONG!!! There ... I said it.
I bet Lazaro not only stays but I bet he is still top 3. Amber and Janelle will be bottom 2, is my guess, with Janelle going home. The judges might use the save on anyone but Lazaro this week just to assure themselves that he can't be saved next week if that is the final week. The judges, however, can probably find out vote totals and if they see that Lazaro is so far ahead of Amber and Janelle then they may wait to use the save next week when the other one of them two gets eliminated. I would only do that if I knew Laz was a sure thing for the top 4, otherwise it is too risky.
I don't think they would use the save on Lazaro. Unfortunately, I don't think they'll have that decision to make. I don't think Lazaro will get the least votes. Nicki is a wimp. She just refused to critique Lazaro. Mariah might try that approach.
I agree that it will be either Janelle or Amber going home. Part of me would like to see it be Amber just to see Nicki's head explode.
To me, a Candice/Kree finale is the ideal result. I like that Kree chose slightly more restrained songs this time. I hope she does that more. I think that, last week, Candice heard three of the judges give top threes that did not include her and she decided to spend this week making them loook like total morons.
I can't help but think Lazaro was saying in his head, "watch THIS, Sanjaya!!!"
Why didn't anyone do Sybil's version of Walk On By? Bacharach songs can actually have a pulse, you know!
I actually like Candice's version of Love Song better than Adele's or The Cure's.
This is the last week that The Save can be used, so it's now or never.
DialIdol currently has Lazaro in the second spot , behind Candice and in front of Kree, followed by Angie, Amber, and Janelle (in that order). Granted, DI is not quite as relevant and reliable as it has been in previous seasons, but still, the thought of having to endure yet another week of his "singing," his dorktrocious outfits, and his overall obnoxious demeanor is enough to put me off my food .
Watched PVR'd show this morning. Candice, there are no words. Kree was amazing. I'd be happy to see either of them win. The rest .. meh .. they could all go home today.
Angie is not better behind the piano -- she's better when she has a lyric she can connect to. Her niche is Christian music -- and that just happens to be what she sings from behind the piano (probably because that's how she leads worship at home). Not a lot of Christian music on the AI approved song list -- but she tapped into a new well with Kari Jobe last night. The judges can bite me - she made me cry. Sing what you know, girl, sing what you know....
I predict Candice and Kree will be all over the charts a year from now -- and Kree will rival Carrie Underwood's success. Candice is my choice for the win.
You spoke for me.
Angie may be better with Christian music but that is not a good enough reason why she can't connect with any other type of music when she is not behind the piano. "Anyone Who Had a Heart" may be dated but it was a pretty great song when Dionne Warwick sang it. Any girl who has been treated badly by a guy (probably 99% of the population) should be able to feel those lyrics. It's like there is no Angie behind the eyes & that's pretty off-putting.
Angie may not allow herself to "engage"/feel any music outside the Christian genre.
Just finished reading Idol Chatter over on USAToday. Interesting about the save. They HAVE to use it. The schedule is based on them using it. So, if a girl is in the bottom this week, they will use it tonight, if it's Lazaro, they won't and it'll carry over to next week.
I think a lot of it is youth and lack of performing experience. In my experience, younger performers are obsessed with getting it "right." Connection to the lyrics and going off melody require a degree of risk taking that makes many young performers uncomfortable.
There were enough good performances last night to make how badly Lazaro sang even more apparent..
Good point about how the save is in its final week. However, that can probably be changed. If I were TPTB I would tell them not to save Lazaro and we would just use the save next week. Who cares if this is supposed to be the final week for it, rules were meant to be broken, no?
Is it just me who finds Kree to be going off-pitch a little more each week? I love her voice and don't want her gone, but she's missing notes more and more often. I think the judges like her too much to state that. And I'm okay with that because I want her in the finale even if she's making more and more mistakes every week.
i agree they would prefer not to use the save on lazaro. but id hate to see them use it on janelle just to use it. i think using it on the other girls would be valid.
I thought I have a pretty good ear but I don't hear it. Lyndsey Parker has the videos from last night up on her website so I'll listen to both of Kree's songs to see if I can hear what you're talking about.
THIS. Also -- for a singer (actor, dancer - figure skating, even, I would imagine) life experience is as much a part of the instrument as the voice/body. I don't think ANY 18 year old has the emotional IQ to connect to some of this material - but I suspect that the choices are limited. This is why Kree and Candice are light years ahead of the others -- they bring life to the table.
*I* would coach the younger ones to stick to what they *could* connect to -- for Angie that connection appears to be CCM music, which I can totally understand, as a former sheltered Christian teenager. I listen to some of the material I sang in my twenties and just cringe. I may have had the vocal chops, but I just.didn't.get.it.
PS -- this is why Broadway sucks today. Young whippersnappers fresh out of musical theatre conservatory who can fill the track and not ask questions get snapped up and burned out...who have no life experience to color the product. Sigh. That's another soapbox, I guess....
