I don't usually live-blog the Idols, but I'm making an exception tonight. I mean, come on, it's Bee Gees night! And I'm Granny!
Okay, first round...
Melinda--the judges were right. Spot-on vocals, as ALWAYS...but the rendition was just okay. She'd better be more impressive on the second one.
Blake--It was silly! Come on! Is that the best he could do with THE BEE GEES???
Lakisha--I missed most of it, but what I heard didn't impress me.
Jordin--Judges right again--the best of the evening, by a mile! Such an incredible voice...
I'll admit, I thought the music of the Brothers Gibb would translate better than it has, because I'm rabidly crazy about them. But maybe their stuff still just works best for THEM, huh?
Melinda--Simon nailed it. The second half of the song puts her in the top two. WOW.
Blake--Remind me again how he got here? Not with THESE performances! Oh, that was too sad.
Lakisha--I don't think this was good enough to keep her in the competition. No question that she has a great voice...these songs just didn't prove it.
Jordin--Another good performance...I hope I'm not the only one, though, that heard several flat notes. And no, as it turns out, the judges heard it too. It wasn't great, but she'll be in the final.
I must say that seeing Barry Gibb looking like he does makes me feel very old indeed LOL
Prediction: Blake goes home. Lakisha would be going home except for the efforts of votefortheworst.com (to which I will not link due to some vulgarity on the site) who will keep her in the game one more week.
