Breakaway by Kelly Clarkson
Speaking of widdle Alzy... major snoozer. She's so unlikable but don't ask me to explain why because I don't know. She just is. And I know it's not her fault but the split screens with her and the backup singers were ridiculous! They reminded me of these:
Oh my gosh, I just wanna pinch those widdle cheekers!! Sorry to distract you with Gty's adorableness.
House of the Rising Sun by The Animals
Holy cow... Stands nailed it last week in her assessment of Shiobhaaan. I had been trying to figure out who she reminded me of and I just couldn't put my finger on it. Then Stands' comment was like a revelation from heaven:
The Story by Brandi Carlisle
Never heard of Brandi Carlisle and have never heard the song. That doesn't do her any favors in my book. And then, in addition to that, it seems like she is "doing a voice." Like, that can't possibly be her normal singing voice. She's cartoony. If voting hadn't been closed by the time I watched this I wouldn't have voted for her.
I Feel The Earth Move by Carole King
Is it or is it not the lamest member of the band who is stuck over there behind the keyboard? Keyboards are inherently lame. Why did she do this?? She could have easily just stood there and let the lamest member of Ricky Miner and the Band take care of the keyboarding. And she was going for LESS CORNY?? L.E.S.S?? It musta been opposite day. Ungood.
Rhiannon by Fleetwood Mac
Oh how I love DD and her guitar. This is why I like her. I want her to take every song and "DDfy it" (I just made that term up, spread it around. But make sure you say it with jazz hands). I love her hair too. And she's gorge. Plus I always have a soft spot in my heart for any Fleetwood Mac song due to its association, in my heart, with my dear sweet Flemmy.
Smile by Charlie Chaplin
Following DD would have been hard for most of these girls but our little resident colorer really took it to an all time low. I blame nerves. She couldn't get them under control and it consumed her. Maybe she couldn't find her zoo animals coloring book before her performance? I don't even GET this song choice either. It's un-update-able. The best part was as she was explaining herself to Ryan they did a cut-away shot to Simon and he was over there feeling his own pec. You heard me, that was the best part.
Give Me One Reason by Tracy Chapman
Loved it. She's great. She did have another wayward dread though. She's the best girl, talent-wise, hands down. Her personality leaves something to be desired but that doesn't show on stage. Her sitting down after her performance indicated that maybe her diabetes is still causing some issues.
I Fall to Pieces by Patsy Cline
Another pair of atrocious earrings (crocheted?). Another week of distracting facial expressions. I don't like my singers to look like they're in pain when they're singing. I did not like the song choice. I did not like the midget electric guitar. I don't hate her tho. Must be our Colorado bond.
