Paul will get a free pass....
Why is Randy comparing Paul to Ray L in terms of making a song his own? Ray records original material.
Randy is clueless as usual. You still have to sing the damn song on key and on the beat while "making it your own."
Thia was a little doll.
Oooh, Colors of the Wind will be perfect for her.
I was going to say, I have actually been rather enjoying how the lack of instruments has been putting the focus back onto the vocals. As much as I loved Crystal and other who used instruments very effectively in the past, I think too many people used it as a crutch to hide behind and it made a lot of the shows a bit boring and one-dimensional. Although maybe they could let them use instruments a few weeks every now and then, if they feel it will showcase them in a better light.
Did she just forget the lyrics in one part? Either that or she needs to enunciate better.
And she was just flat on the high note.
Ok scratch the perfect for her part
I love thia's voice so much, I will put up with the GFBs
Can someone tell Thia that "I Will Always Love You" is a Dolly Parton song? Thanks.
Also, "Colors of the Wind." Nice, but zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
I don't think Paul's pitch problems were as big as Naima's.
Thia definitely was better in terms of pitch. But, dang, she's going to bore me to tears by the time she gets the boot. I don't like the pageant style dress either.
Thia looks beautiful....these types of songs leave me cold.
Randy said pageant.
Apparently, someone passed Randy a clue.
Did Jennifer get a finger stuck in a socket or something?
She also thought that Smile was a Michael Jackson song.
I think Tim Urban may have hid behind the guitar a little, but I don't think Crystal used it as a crutch. You can both play well and sing well. I think the solution to the problem of singers possibly using instruments as crutches is to call them out on it when they aren't doing much other than strumming a few chords. And it's kind of a handicap for singers who are used to playing an instrument on stage to suddenly be up there without one. It's a totally different way of handling the stage.
how many FSUers thought that Landslide was a Dixie Chicks song when it was on Glee? whippersnappers
A kind request of all East Coast-er's...please avoid pronouns. (And song titles instead of "that song" would be great, too.)
I actually didn't know that the Dixie Chicks had covered Landslide, but I don't follow country music. I also didn't associate Smile with MJ at all. At least with I Will Always Love You, there is a strong association with Whitney that I was aware of.
I hate that Thia's talent is being wasted by the song choices...
Geez. The whiny West Coasters who have no patience have shown up.
James up next. He was born 1989. Lots of good music that year. Don't pick some shitty song, James.
ZOMG two year old James looks exactly like current James.
Really? I'll be there for You by Bon Jovi? Meh.
Naima, all over the place...
Paul... again, what the hell was that?
Thia... Please darling go compete in Miss America, this is a singing competition...
James... Controlled, holding it back, but again for me just not as good as I remember him being...
They've had some weird back-up singer arrangements, or they have them too loud or something, but they're practically drowning out the singer at times. Annoying.
In my defense, I've barely paid attention to this season, so I don't know their names. And in that case, I was on the phone while she was performing badly. But yes, I understand how that can get obnoxious!
gosh there is a lot of material in j lo's skirt, she looks like miss beadle on little house gone wild
James grew his tail back. I think he's been drinking some of what Paul's drinking. Staggering a bit. Sounded fine. Nothing great.
I don't like Adam Lambert v2.0
Peter, please check your PMs.
Did Steven just get bleeped?
I thought James sang the song well. I just don't like that song. Or Bon Jovi, much, if I'm being honest.
Clearly, I know bugger all about music. I thought that sounded horrible.
There are lot of bar band lead singers as good as James. I haven't seen anything that prompts me to want to vote.
