    American Idol Top 3 Night

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Josh's choice-"Imagine."

    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)
