    I thought it was ok...but not a great song choice for him. So far, no one has wowed me tonight.

    Is it their music you like or Jon Bon Jovi?

    I have no TV in the office any longer :drama: so I can't do PBP :fragile:, so I'm here during the commercials.

    Naima - Awful

    Paul - can't even call it awful because that wasn't singing. It was a feline castration while on helium

    Thia - Total snooze. When did Randy start making sense?

    James - I wanted to like it. I really did. But it was not up to par with his ability. Plus I find Bon Jovi to be the epitome of Pop Rock and about as rock and roll as a Marshmallow Peep :yawn: . If only he'd been born in 1987 - he could have sung something from Def Leppard's Hysteria album.

    Love that Steven Tyler got majorly bleeped - what did he say?

    Haley... somewhere a drag queen is offended... and elsewhere a goat and a gerbil on helium is howling at a moon!

    Why does Haley grunt when she sings?

    And how did she get lipstick on her chin?

    Haley - "I'm Your Baby Tonight". Bad song choice, IMO. I do not like what she's trying to do with this. I don't like her phrasing or what she does to the songs she chooses. Lyrics seem irrelevant to her.

    there is an amazing voice deep deep deep down inside of hayley that can't crawl out from behind this dull demeanor, it is like she isnt being herself and so it doesnt work

    (peter - that's about hayley)

    I disagree with Randy because, even though the originals of these songs may have come from different genres, Haley generally sings (or mumbles) them the same way.

    Hate that Whitney Houston song but that was a strong performance by Hailey..at least she's getting out of her comfort zone.

    I would prefer Stefano try out Funky Cold Medina rather than caterwauling to Simply Red.

    Stefano -- "If You Don't Know Me By Now" - He's still closing his eyes too much. He's kind of acquiring a lounge singer vibe. Meh.

    Ok Stefano had the best performance so far, now. Last note he ran out of air on a bit, but otherwise really good.

    And I agree, Allskate...don't care for the faces he was making.

    What a dumb question. :p

    Both, actually. But Jon is aging better than any rock star I can think of...and he's age appropriate for :grope:

    It's not an avocado, it's a bronze n' green tank, Princess, and don't you forget it.

    Stefano was the best of the night for sure, so far! Nice job for him.

    I'm losing friends fast here on FSU tonight.

    (Well, Southerners and Midwesteners, what do they know.)

    Stefano was pretty good.

    :lol: He's aged better than Steven. I think Steven used Pricilla's plastic guy.

    I'm starting to think that Jimmy Iovine isnt much of a mentor, he's mentoring them all straight to the Jerry Lewis telethon

    Ok Pia just blew them all out of the water. She's so far above most of the other singers.

    And yeah, her outfit looked 80's too.
