    I hope they don't pick a bunch of stoopid drippy ballads.

    A songlist was posted by Idol on FB but not who was singing what. I saw one or two horribly cliched ballads that I am sure Sanchez snapped up but also saw some fun and interesting choices.

    Deandre sounds very good, but he bores me. It's all hair flipping and weird dancing...

    Deandre getting the unneccessary tongue bathing from the judges. I don't get it. The tone was off to me. Didn't like it.

    I thought I knew every song ever from the 80s. I did not recognize Deandre's Debarge song.

    ETA: I hope Elise does Hot Blooded and not :yawn: I Wanna Know What Love Is.

    Elise is uncharacteristically, horribly off-pitch. Nothing like last week.

    You could, sadly, see that freight train coming from 100 miles away :scream:.

    And it was....awful :fragile: :yikes:. Painfully so. She better pray someone tanks epically, otherwise she's going to get the boot.

    Good god, why didn't she pull out the Alison Moyet (much like Adele, only better) songbook? She would have freaking killed "All Cried Out" or "Love Resurrection" :wall:

    Just tuning in to see Colton and Skylar doing "Islands in the Stream," originally by Kenny and Dolly, I think? Doing a decent job. Skylar sounds good, not a shouty as usual, and he's doing a great job of harmonizing with her.

    Filler. I prefer it to the types of filler they normally use. I'm all for seeing more of the contestants performing, rather than pointless fluff and miscellaneous BS.

    Couldn't they just go back to hour long shows?

    Nope. That would mean fewer ads and less cash.:p

    Phillip with Genesis' "That's All." Not a great vocal. He really doesn't have much range at all, as has been pointed out in previous weeks. This is his worst performance yet, IMO.

    Something seemed off about that entire performance...

    I usually like Phillip, but this song is not working for me. Not sure if it's him or if it's the fact that I hate Genesis and this song in particular.

    i thought this song was lame when it was new
    on the bright side, he sounds better than the original /faint praise]
