Ok, I raced home after worship team practice at church tonight to get home in time for Idol...I'm not sure where my theology is on that, but I didn't speed so I think that makes it ok, right? Anyway, I missed Casey's first performance. Sigh.
Crystal Bowersox "Come To My Window" - loved what she did with the song...after the initial harmonica, which seemed kind of strange to me. Not a big fan of the harmonica unless you are Billy Joel.
Lee Dwyze "Simple Man" - I thought he did fantastic with this! Love that he picked a not-so-popular song, because it showed originality and confidence that has been building in him. I think the originality has always been there, but just recently he's really letting loose and showing who he really is and what he can do. Well done!
Casey James "Daughters" - One word...beautiful. This type of music is SO meant for Casey, even though I wouldn't put him in the same genre as John Mayer. He added his own acoustic style to it, which I (of course) loved. I kind of agree with Simon in that the song didn't have a "climactic moment" so I'm not sure how that will be received, but based on artistic talent, he nailed it.
Crystal Bowersox "Maybe I'm Amazed" - I'm kinda running out of words for how awesome Crystal is. She really is. She's got serious talent. That is all.
Lee DeWyze "Hallelujia" - Oh, I'm excited. I love this song........
Sorry for the long pause, but I was having a moment. OH. MY. WORD. I am speechless. I have chills and tears in my eyes. I am literally crying now. And I hear Mr. Wonderful sniffling too! All I can say is wow. There are no other words. Absolutely, incredible and amazing beyond belief. That boy has just secured himself a career in music no matter what the outcome of Idol.
Best of the night: Lee, by far
Probably going: Casey....but for the record, I'm still a huge fan!
