    Ta-Tynisa. Dreadful. I'm with Randy, who used to be the nice one.

    :lol: I feel like it's mean, really hate her name. I would like to hear Randy express an opinion or give a criticism without Jennifer shrieking that she disagrees. We already heard what you think. Shut up and let other people talk.:rolleyes:

    I wasn't impressed either. She wasn't even close to being in tune with the band.

    Naima sang the first half of Summertime very well. Major props for not going anywhere near Fantasia's version.

    This is my first time watching any of these singers, so I know nothing about them.

    First girl - thought she sucked.

    Naima - great - I can almost forgive her having the same name as the worst winner of ANTM ever :p

    Kendra - she was good, but seems like yet another typical generic blonde singer.

    Wow. A Fiona song! Is this a first? I'm not sure how well it's working though, but an interesting effort.

    The problem with throwing parts of your clothing on the floor is there is no graceful way to pick it up.

    Did Rachael forget a lyric? I didn't like it, at any rate.

    I love Criminal but this arrangement reminds me of Jessica Rabbit and I don't really like it

    I think a better singer could have pulled it off.

    How could the audience possibly boo Randy in this instance?

    ETA: Hero, ugh. I don't even like it when Mariah sings it.

    It is the kiss of death to sing this song.. Hero by Mariah Carey.

    But the girl worked it out. Very good job with a difficult song.

    Karen sings Hero in a very average way. Will Randy note comparisons with Mariah?

    if this song must be sung, it should be reserved for telethons and beauty pageants

    She looked like she was dressed for a beauty pageant. :lol: At least she was in tune - especially as compared to the first and fourth competitor.

    I just realized Jacob Lusk = George Huff, looks-wise anyway. I much prefer George's singing tho...

    I wish there were an internet stream where I could watch this - since the digital change-over, there's no way to watch TV in the office where my computer is :fragile: :wall: :mad: .

    Lauren Turner should come back next week. This is the first performance I'd vote for.

    Is Lauren Turner the blonde or brunette one? The blonde one is from Atlanta, and our local Fox affiliate has been pimping her all over the place here.

    LOL She's recovering and attempting a comeback.

    I really hope she does get it together cuz I think Amy is stupid talented and Back to Black is a classic CD. I still play this CD, years later.

    Lauren Turner turnered it out!!! :p Love those big voices. Hot outfit too. :cheer:

    I loooove Rachel Z. but that version of Criminal was crazy. I still hope she makes it. Her version of Speechless makes my life. You can see that and all the other top 24 vids here:

    http://www.americanidol.com/videos/season_10/top_24/

    Kendra was nice but she is no Xtina. Karen was nice but she is no Mariah. Naima is no Fantasia. And Taty is no Rihanna. So, blah to them all.

    honestly, the girls are singing CIRCLES over the guys, IMO.

    some will be accused of being pageanty or whatever, but give me that over dudes who perform like they're drunk at their uncle's wedding and then get a pass for being "quirky".

    :rofl: I make no claims on any of these singers (especially if there's the potential for suckage :p ).

    My mom (who is an AI junkie) just called me, absolutely raving about Lauren Turner's performance.
