Joshua up with an Etta James that is right in his wheelhouse, expect tongue bathing from the judges.
We'll use Kyle's thread since he knows these songs.
I have no idea was song Jessica is singing. Maybe Kyle does.
jessica cant sing w/o belting, she sounds like she's dying
I'll be watching, but I'm behind the live show, so I won't be on this thread until after the show is over. Have fun discussing!
Is Jennifer trying to sabotage Jess, or is she just totally clueless. What a ridiculous choice (My All by Mariah.)
Completely unreal tongue bath from the stooges. Funny that despite their over the top comments, they can't really make their voices sound enthusiastic while delivering them.
ETA: I missed Josh. What was his song?
I didn't think she did it "beautifully." I thought it was sort of flat.
I thought that was lovely, soft and enjoyed it.. can't believe she is 16
My All by Mariah Carey was what that was, but it's just kinda meh.
Totally agree. Why would Jennifer pick that? Jessica loses power when she goes into her lower register.
I don't know P2's song, either. But I kinda like it. Probably because it's not a drippy ballad.
Phil singing "Beggin'" by Madcon, and it's kind of awesome. I'm scared...And Jessica should be too.
ETA: Anyone remember who did this song originally?
ETA: My mom tells me it was The Four Seasons.
I hope Phillip wins for no other reason than it'll piss off the judges.
p2 has no range but he's the most interesting of the 3 to me
They might have been trying to give Jessica something that wasn't just loud and powerful, but that was painful in parts.
I hate Josh's singing style, but he seems really nice. And like he would be hilarious to hang out with.
I just wouldn't let him sing.
The judges gave their best choice to Philip...he was really good with a song that suited him perfectly.
I know they were trying to show Jessica's softer side but it was a bit bland .. well sung though.
Joshua killed the Etta James song but, really, they should have given him something more current. No favors to Josh when he is presented as a "throwback" to yesteryear.
I think round one went to Philip.
I actually really like what he's doing with it. Managed to be himself without going too OTT.
So far of the three, I find myself really liking what P2 did with that Madcon song .
Not sure what the judges were smoking, but JeZzzzica sounded really flat on her song.
This rendition of Imagine from Josh went pretty well. I like him a lot better when he just sings. I also liked it better than Archie's version.
With all the covers of this song, I still think the best cover on this show was the version David Archie did (as much as I didn't like him)
i have never liked imagine (except that once when jordis sang it)
Joshua's rendition of Imagine ....
Oh gods, I just saw the song list posted over at Reality TV Games, and some poor soul is being saddled with Aerosmith's 'I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing" .
Didn't somebody do that last season, or on some other singing competition show recently? Awful choice in general, but might be OK for Phil, who I bet will be the one.
ETA: OMG, it's Jessica!!
ETA: It's actually not bad. Better than her 1st round effort. And better than Steven....
OMG! Is there a season where this song hasn't been performed? It is one of the most horrible pieces of dreck but someone always has to perform it.
jessica's choice is sort of anemic in parts
I really like all three finalists.. they each have something special .. will be a tough choice for me..
I wanted to miss Jessica singing that song
Whoever wins is ok with me..hope they each achieve certain amount of success in the music biz....
As usual song choices all suck so far....
