I want Hollie's dress. And I like her version of River Deep, Mountain High.
See, I don't know, I adore Hollie, but I thought it fell a bit flat this time... Apparently I was wrong?
Are you going to add a poll, PL?
Sorry, I want the dress. We may have to fight for it. You can have the shoes though. Now that I think of it, the dress will be really short on me at 5'7". Oh well.
I'm not poll-proficient...
Wheee! Girl fight!
Not loving Philip. I don't even recognize the song. Is it "The Letter"?
Phillip Phillips singing "The Letter" by The Box Tops or Joe Cocker or Dionne Warwick or whoever the f***.
Pretty good, for him, I thought. JLo saying she doesn't know the song. Really?
Also says it lacked melody. Is she new here?
Who did this recently on AI? It was much better. I just can't recall who it was.
I hate Jennifer's stoopid laugh.
Skylar up with "Fortunate Son" by CCR. Judges talked her into changing from "Knock on Wood." I thought she sounded good on her first song, but it's been done way too many times on shows like this. I can't remember anyone doing "Fortunate Son."
Skylar doing "Fortunate Son" except it sounds like she changed it to "Fortunate One."
This song, if people really listen to the lyrics, isn't exactly all "GO AMERICA!" that is Skylar's target audience.
That said, I'm really enjoying her performance.
The Letter? Lee DeWyze but also Carly Smithson and Michael Johns duet.
Skylar is all wrong on Fortunate Son. She obviously has not a freaking clue what it's about. Not a happy bouncy song, the lyrics are so full of anger and bitterness that I hate hate hate her right now.
Carly and Michael was the one I was remembering. That was all kinds of awesome.
Josh and Phil dueting to "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" by the Righteous Brothers. Should be cute and entertaining and a hot mess.
Is Phillip in on a joke that the rest of us aren't, or is he just high?
This pairing is sorta kinda working in and odd way.
Phillip and Joshua?
My ears are bleeding. This is one of my favorite sixties songs. I'm ironing while watching AI and had to leave the room, I hope nothing burns.
Jessica doing "Proud Mary." Is this 60's night, or are we just playing Six Degrees of Fogerty?
Jessica singing Proud Mary well. But, meh.
eta: Jennifer was a fan of Elise my ass.
It was good, but yeah, it's been done just like that many times. For people who find her generally annoying, I doubt that did anything to change their minds.
Randy agrees with us.
i hate it when j lo speaks
To me it was like Jessica was singing a phonetic translation. Zero understanding of the song, and another one way way too mature for her.
Joshua doing "Ain't Too Proud To Beg" by The Temptations.
Steven Tyler.. STFU, top two ever?! Kelly Clarkson? Carrie Underwood? Pia Toscano? Not a chance...
I'm dying here. The music of my youth is being raped and pillaged.
Randy compares Joshua to Terrance Trent Darby. Um, no.
However, I did almost enjoy that from Joshua. I think they want him to win. Steven dubs him one of the "top two Idols of all time." Um, no.
Oh man, I would love to see Vikings perform on here.
To be fair, I don't think he meant that they were similarly vocally, but that both give a modern spin to classic R&B. That's sort of true...
I just get excited when anyone mentions Terrence Trent D'Arby. Talk about an underappreciated artist.
I hope the judges are on something because if this is them without any chemical assistance...
Hollie's 2nd number "Bleeding Love" by Leona Lewis. A slowed down version that I like better than the original.
Steven says he doesn't know the song. Apparently this crew thinks it's cool not to know songs that everybody else on the planet knows.
i wonder why this season they are selling each wks's songs in album format only. i have to think their sales are down.
