    I'm assuming the fact that Glee isn't back until two weeks from now means next week is going to be two hours too?

    God help us.

    Too bad they can't move up Glee's return. I wanna hear some Lea Michele and Amber Riley.

    We were just talking about that today, saying the AI contestants aren't even close to being in the same league.

    Seriously. I watched the promo with the little clip of Lea's Like a Prayer like a billion times just to get my fix. I need to hear the whole thing, and soon.

    Casey has permanently lost me-all I hear now is Huey Lewis's doppleganger. He was on key and performed it competently though.

    I've always thought of Ready for Love as kind of Alt/R&B and as far from generic as it gets. Michael was the only good one so far.

    Props for Didi for not giving in to Ryan's prying. Too bad she had to sing though.

    LOOK INTO THE CAMERA!

    Who told him that was a good idea.

    He is so high school. It's hard to believe this was one of the better vocals of the night.

    Completely clueless. Anita Baker's Sweet Love is one of the all-time great vocals and Tim Urban attempts to destroy it for all time. Must listen to her version immediately after the show.

    well, he is doubling over and looking pained. Too bad the voice just makes me think about how light and soft the original is.

    Is that a tip jar on the piano in this bar?

    Simon hits the nail on the head: It doesn't make any difference what he sings. Tim got himself a sweet ride.

    I love the song Andrew is singing, but I think it needs to be sped up....
  28. soxxy

    Andrew sings Forever, which I've never heard of (Does it contain the lyrics Double your pleasure, double your fun?). I don't like his high voice but he's better by far than Didi and Tim, so he should be safe.

    Whoa, I actually kind of enjoyed that.

    Still haven't forgiven him for Gimme Shelter though.

    Andrew joins the ranks of the not-horrible tonight. I don't think it was as good as the judges are saying, but in comparison to what he did last week, I guess it was really nice to hear.

    If Andrew threw in a bit of espanol, it would really get him the Jose Feliciano award. I'd like to see him do an album like this...

    I actually thought it was an old song because of that. Hardly.

    They cut off Simon. What was Simon going to say about the guy before?

    Oh my god, what was that with Andrew's mom? I thought I was watching Maury for a second.
