BLOGGING LIVE, DURING AMERICAN IDOL: Everyone seems more relaxed tonight. The vocals are better and no one is frantic.
- Big Mike Lynche was really good , solid, really nice. He is the one to beat. Singing It’s A Man’s, Man’s, Man’s World (James Brown), Mike let it fly.
- John Park was my least favorite tonight, just average, at best. I cringed when he he went flat.
- Casey James played a great guitar, but it’s a singing competition. He could get a recording contract like Daughtry. He needs to up his vocals, to be more of a rocker.
- Alex Lambert was SO much better, relaxed, nice song, nice vocal. What a difference. So, the first few were so much better than last week, that each week they are going to get even better still.
- Having been a ballet dancer, the judges really ripped him as a dancer who was singing. He started this nice groove on Tina Turners’s “What’s love got to do with it”. Really nice R&b version, this worked for me. Not a strong singer though. Randy is just confusing the hell out of me and the contestants. Don’t change the arrangements, do change the arrangements.yes, but you changed it to much! I am so sick of these judges. The only thing I agree with is his vocals are just not good. I loved the new spin on this song. I would consider doing this arrangement myself.
- Jermaine Sellers started smooth groovin with Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Goin On”..He is not the American Idol, but it was nice. Then again, What do I know about who the public is going to vote for! His vocals were just ok.
- Andrew Garcia is a pretty good singer, I like him. The thing is, I don’t hear any exceptional spark like with Adam Lambert, or Ruben Studdard, or even Clay Aiken.
- Aaron Kelly is a good stylist. Has a nice timber, but did “my Girl” He has a lot of riff’s happening, his vibrato makes me crazy. The best thing about his voice is the raspy part of it.
- Tim Urban reminded me of a night club singer, or folk singer. he is so cute, the girls could keep him on. However, Big Mike took the show tonight.
- Lee Dewyze is a rocker; nice gruff voice. Best rocker this season, but again… nothing amazing. He may have a career as a rocker. But he won’t win this competition.
