Siobhan - oh, honey...not good. Really, really not good. She knows it too, you can see it in her eyes. Poor thing. The judges are trying to be nice about it (well, except for Simon of course. He's about as gentle as lemon juice in a papercut.) But do they have to go on and on? Really. Now she's ready to cry. I've never been much of a fan, but if she's still around next week I hope she comes back and blows them away.
Casey - I love the song, I love how he smiles and has fun when he performs, and it's no secret that I LOVE his raspy voice! Helloooo! He just pulls through week after week with excellence. He's this year's Chris Daughtry in my opinion (and of course, it's all about my opinion.) Phhht.
Michael - here comes the teddy bear! I've never heard this song before, but wow, I love it. That was beautiful!! (Ellen just stole my words). He sang with such passion and emotion, and that's what it's all about for me. Absolutely beautiful. Loved the guitar too.
Didi - oh, I love her so much, but this just isn't working for her tonight. It doesn't fit her style, doesn't showcase her voice, and even the look isn't really "her". I'm with Kara...I'm confused. This was way out of character for her. Even so, I'm still a fan and I hope she comes back next week....Ok, what's up with Ryan and wanting her to explain why she chose the song??? She obviously didn't want to talk about it and he just kept pushing it until she cried! Wow, Ryan, way to be a jerk - gosh!
Tim - oh no. Sitting on the stairs...way cheesey. And when he wasn't closing his eyes he looked a little bit Charlie Manson with his eyes all wide staring into the camera like that. Kinda creeped me out.
Velma - not bad, but he sounded better in practice. I know he's popular, but I've just never gotten it about him. There's just something weird going on there. (Maybe the bouffant hair?)
Katie - uh boy, she's going to try another Aretha song. Yep. It's just as bad as I thought it would be. It's hard to concentrate on her voice tho with those humungo hoop earrings flapping around and distracting me.
Lee - this is going to be good. Yep it's good. Amazing in fact. This is sooo his style of song. I can't believe I"m saying this but I think he's this year's Daughtry. Sorry, Casey, but I'm going out on you....Lee ROCKED IT TONIGHT!!! YEEESSSSSSSSSSSSS! BEST performance so far, by a mile!!! And he's so humble, love that.
I totally want to go out and buy some Degree Naturals deodorant and some Midol now, just because of their commercials. I could smell good while I sleep amongst beautiful flowers. Nice.
Crystal - let's go, girl. Bring it. Love the piano, and she's so into this song.......awe, now she got up and started "performing". Ugh. Not the style I love about her, but know what, she can sing and she's showing her versatility and true talent even outside of her norm. (Deep breath). I love what Ellen said "you're never not good!" So true - she's the strongest girl this year for sure. She might just win and if she does, I'll be happy! I do however completely agree with Simon...she should stay true to herself and her style.
Doogie Howser - I kind of forgot that he's still even in it. He's trying so hard and he's got a good voice, but oh, sweetie, please don't rock your head like that. I know I know I know the teenie boppers prolly really love you, but this may be your last week. But thank you anyway - the song reminded me of my Kris from last year, and that makes me smile!
Best of the night: Lee KNOCKED IT OUT!
Vote off prediction: I'm going with Siobhan.
