    Little Pia could have sung Rachel Berry's "Headband." :lol:

    Pia says's she is showing growth -- with a Whitney Houston song? The outfit is awful. I know they're singing songs from the year they were born, but surely they can choose better fashion. She's a good singer, but I'm not a fan of her glory notes.

    Aggh. I'm on another planet tonight and will shut up and slink away.

    Love the outfit, think she has a fabulous voice and will probably be the last girl standing, but the song is sorta meh.

    AND I like JLo's hair too, looks like mine when it's raining but it's better on her.

    Ooh. Scotty is doing Travis Tritt. Some outlaw country. He should do some Montgomery Gentry.

    Stefano and Pia - easily the best of the night so far.

    I started to type something about country music giving me an arrhythmia but I think we have hurt PRLady's feelings enough for one night

    I guess Scotty's not going to veer from his country range until he makes the tour. They've probably destroyed the tape of him singing Johm Mayer and Frank Sinatra during his auditions. :lol:

    I'd like him to sing some younger songs. I never get the impression that he is connecting with the lyrics. It's like he's playing grown up. I kind of wish they had kept John Wayne Shulz and waited on Scotty a few years.

    His voice is good, but I'm not a fan of his facial expressions and stage presence.

    Scotty was quite good, I am so impressed with how refined he is at just 17.

    Okay, Karen is another 1989 baby.

    WON'T SOMEONE THINK OF THE HAIR METAL FANS???

    (Bon Jovi are not metal. And that song was lame. It doesn't count. :p)

    Please don't let "Blue Crew" turn into "Soul Patrol" ...we don't need to hear it every week lol.

    Scotty is from Garner which is about 20 minutes from me.

    :confused: Who? Never heard of him. He looks pretty good, though.

    Now Scotty did another of my favorite aging guys, Travis Tritt. His politics suck but he had some good songs. And he did it pretty well, too.

    The thing is, there's a huge variety in country. He just needs to do something other than ballads. He needs to do some outlaw country. Travis Tritt certainly has some. He can really change up the tempos. Clearly, his career will be in country, but he can vary the type of songs he's doing.

    Baby Lock Them Doors sang well, but I agree he doesn't seem to connect with the lyrics.

    "She's only seventeen (seventeen). Daddy says she's too young, but she's old enough for me."

    Creepy lyrics. Awesome song. :D

    Name of group? C'mon, I had a hard life and missed a lot of good music. I bought a Duran Duran song last night because Lanna referred to it in a non-music thread!

    And agreed that Scotty should do some rocking country. T-R-O-U-B-L-E would be a lot of fun.
