I think another reason the Amber promotion isn't working better is that the audience can tell it's coming at the expense of other contestants. Amber struggles with some of the notes while doing a very karaoke version of a Celine Dion song standing still throughout the song and she's called current and perfect Then Candice sings a current song, shows her musicality, creativity, and vocal prowess and the tell her she's old-fashioned and that she doesn't have to have runs and go to church. Candice didn't go to church with her singing. Plus, in the past they've raved for contestants who really did go to church with their singing, but Candice didn't do that.
Then, they criticize Kree for a song choice that I'm betting a lot of her fans loved. "It Hurts So Bad" was my favorite vocal of the night and I thought the song choice was great for her voice. They criticize her for not laying it out there, but Candice oversang and Amber had just stood still and was totally unconnected to her Celine Dion song.
I've never understood Angie's big appeal and I give up on trying. But, I don't think she deserves to go home next.
