Here’s a fact that shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone who has watched this season — even in the recorded group medley of top Bacharach/David hits Lazaro is flat. But one pleasant surprise is how good Candice and Amber sounded together—wow!
I am no longer covering the Ford commercials. This week’s mission was outright silly, with the contestants playing soccer – with their cars! Seriously? What happened to helping underprivileged kids learn to sing?
ACCORDING TO JIMMY:
Kree did a great job, but if she wants to win, she’ll have to show more personality.
Angie did a competent job, but not enough to win.
Lazaro did well in the overall competition for someone with little experience, but his performance Wednesday was a boring Ambien milkshake. Jimmy ranked him 10 out of six.
Janelle has been making songs her own, but this week she did literal interpretations. She needs to make them her own because she doesn’t have the vocal power of some of the others.
He gave Candice a 10 out of 10 and said she’s leading now. He thinks she has a great voice and a great sense of what to sing.
He didn’t understand why people don’t get Amber. She’s everything he looks for in an artist — the total package.
Scotty McCreery: He is no longer the teen that won S10. He now attends North Carolina University and definitely has a little more muscle in those arms. “See You Tonight” an OK song, not great – a little too repetitive. But he’s so likeable and talented, how can you not love him?
S1 winner Kelly Clarkson debuts her new single “People Like Us” in black light. Yuck. The light makes her look terrible, really terrible and quite pudgy. The fingernail of blue eye shadow on raccoon eyes makes her look like an alien. Who talked her into this? But it’s a good song and should be a hit for her.
Finally, Ryan divides the singers into three groups:
Candice and Kree: Top 2
Janelle and Angie: safe
Lazaro and Amber: Bottom 2
Lazaro is in danger and can’t even keep in tune with his “save me” song, “Feeling Good.” Luckily, the judges decide not to use their save. Can it be? Really? Ding dong, the Lazaro is… well, gone.
For the first time in Idol history, the top 5 is made up of women. Next week is the final chance for the judges to use their save and I’m guessing they will (they like flexing their muscles, just like Scotty).
Were you sad to see Lazaro go? How did you feel seeing Amber in the Bottom 2 (and seeing her face as she was put in the same group as the final man)? Who do you think will be in the bottom next week? Give us your TwoCents…
