    That would be AWESOME! But if we're try to look at the bright side, anybody who chooses ballads every week is shooting themselves in the foot as the Mariah/Celine/Whitney era is over and choosing ballads shows there is no place for them in the current music industry.

    The producers should have never put him into the top 40. I think they never felt he would be a successful musical artist, so they used his story to make a TV show. Lazaro is being used.

    Umm...no. Wait a minute, are you thinking that Lazaro watches soap operas all day rather than being petrified beyond belief while on stage to the point that he can't remember the words he has been studying for fourteen hours a day over the last six consecutive days??
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    This, I totally agree with.

    I doubt he watches soap operas, but I also doubt that he's been studying fourteen hours a day for six consecutive days. It's pretty obvious that it isn't simple fear that causes him not to know the lyrics. He said at one point last month that he didn't even know the end of the song. He also has said that he hasn't had enough time to learn them. Lots of excuses -- not just by Lazaro, but by his defenders.

    But it sounds like Lazaro ISNT studying words 14 hours a day over 6 consecutive days. Jimmy Iovine made it clear and Devin himself made it clear on live television. Not only are two people involved with the show giving us gigantic hints but Lazaro is proving it by not knowing words OR dance moves that are as basic as they come. He's no victim and he shouldn't make excuses when it seems clear he has a very poor work ethic.

    I'd be willing to defend Lazaro if he din't make so many excuses. I've forgotten dance chroeography that I've practiced for months every single day out of nerves. But aside from Lazaro forgetting the words to the group performance, he's had quite a few poor solo performances that didn't invlove forgetting lyrics, and he still tried to make excuses for those.

    Song spoilers for tonight:

    http://www.mjsbigblog.com/american-i...g-spoilers.htm

    Some of these people clearly have no desire to really rock out. I'm going to go out on a limb and predict that Candice and Kree will be my favorites tonight.

    Have the producers lost their love for Angie?

    I'm really curious as to what Burnell will do with his song. With his voice, it should be interesting.

    Candice always picks the most overused songs & tonight isn't an exception. Kree picks a lot of tired songs too.

    All the voting shows I watch with my mom and she can't believe So-and-So got voted out I keep saying that exact same thing ... its not a singing (or dancing or talent) competition ... its a popularity contest!

    uhm ... Burnell's choice (if accurate). No. Just no. I just don't see how he can do that song well. Totally not the right kind of voice, but I guess we shall see.

    Well there's no weird lyric endings, but this seems kind of karaoke to me. Not bad though.

    If Burnell's performance is any indication, we are in for a looong night.

    it may not have been great but at least burnell's song didnt force me to check out survivor like it has every other week so far
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    It's good to see that Mariah is continuing to give out effort comments.

    I missed the performance and judging. Did I miss anything important?

    the best part was seeing the backup singer in my shirt if that helps
