Perhaps he could test your theory from last night ...
You're right full of ideas.i would love to get rid of scotty but i dont see that happening, even if he refused to sing and pooped on the stage
Crystal is performing next week on the results show. She just posted it on Facebook!! Yay!
What happened to getting all the winners back since it is the 10th season?
We've had Kelly and David. Who else did I miss? I haven't watched other results shows. Maybe they will try something for the finale but it will be a little repetitive since they did that last year for Simon's goodbye and had all the winners except David.

Lee was on a few weeks ago. Easy to forget.
I honestly think Matt Bellamy was punking James when he told him to go an octave higher. I also think Muse will do anything to get their music more exposure in the US, such as agreeing to be on the Twilight soundtrack.
Regarding Kelly's songs, are ALL of her songs on the album like that though or just her singles? I can't believe RCA wouldn't want her to release a "Waking Up in Vegas" type song, as long as it's catchy and sounds good.
I was kidding with that comment actually. I know Muse is already huge in the US. They don't really need to be played on the radio, make music for Twilight, email James Durbin, etc. for them to sell well here.
I didn't see these posted anywhere in the thread, but Haley's and James' studio versions from last night are
James Durbin - Uprising (Studio Recording)
Haley Reinhart - Rollin' in the Deep (Studio Recording)
I didn't watch Casey's performance, so I have no idea how the live rendition compares, but here's the studio version of it:
Casey Abrams - Harder to Breathe (Studio Recording)
Lauren Alaina's studio version of learning to fly is miles better than the live performance - she has a lot more confidence to her voice (though it still sounds very young)
Lauren Alaina - Born to Fly (Studio Recording)
As for the other three, I couldn't be bothered to look them up .

Everyone's such a big fan of Haley, but I'm not really feeling her. She looks and sounds like a 12-year-old girl to me. It's her thin frame and just something about how she pronounces her words when she sings.
I could see Scotty doing something from the earlier stuff: Child of Mine, Way Over Yonder, and Peace in the Valley come to mind. The problem with her stuff is the arrangement of consonants in the lyrics as well as the rhythms that may not sound good to younger ears. It's hard to wail with a Carole King song. I think Scotty may actually have the easier time. James and especially Jacob may struggle.

Scotty auditioned with Frank Sinatra. I think he can sing anything he wants. He's either being told to stick to the same type of material or he's acting like a 17 yo and thinking he knows better than wiser heads, or some combination of the two.

If James is going to struggle artistically, my guess is that it will be this week.
He was really upset at Stefano's departure. From the Stefano's journey clips, it looks like they were roomates from day 1.
ETA: if this includes songs Carole King co-wrote for other people, there might be something there for him to rock up? Like Loco-Motion? In fact, I Feel the Earth Move has some range to it that Jacob or James could work/shriek.
Could be interesting.

I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.
I disagree with the above post that she comes off as a 12 year old. I think she has a very mature voice and style. But, as I said, I don't think the Idol audience necessarily appreciates (likes) it.
At least the show gave Casey the opportunity to work with her. He may be a good musician but he doesn't have 1/2 the voice she does.Originally Posted by Aceon
My comment had nothing to do with Haley outside her performance time, and I'll take your word for it that she's very mature. How old is she? Because I think her face looks really young, and with all her growling, it's like a high schooler pretending to act/perform like a grown-up. It's the opposite reaction I had with Allison Iraheta, who showed her age off the stage but her thick, husky voice made me think she was way older than she was.
I also missed it on AI.I didn't watch Casey's performance, so I have no idea how the live rendition compares, but here's the studio version of it:
Casey Abrams - Harder to Breathe (Studio Recording)
However, I liked the recording very much.
Haley is 20. The same age Kelly and Carrie were when they were on the show.
