"Inspirational songs," let's go.
What in the Huey Lewis? I feel we are growing apart. I'm not willing to kick him to the curb just yet but, dude. Go back to the Pearl Jam vibe. Quick.
Chills. This reminded me of Kris Allen's performance of Once. The song choice? Perfect. The execution of said song choice? Fabulous. I loved it. I love him. He's definitely in the front of the pack now. Not even close.
I'm not a fan of French Onion soup. So I guess Timmy is my French Onion soup this week, as per Ellen. He sounded OH KAY but I wasn't into it. It was like he was fake connecting to the song. I think someone told him that if he tipped his head back a little and closed his eyes that we'd think he was feelin' the song. I'm not falling for it. But yes, he did look good in that henley. Like, super good.
"I Believe I Can Fly"
Oh GAG. Is there a worst song than this out there? Huh? HUH? I couldn't even stand to listen to this crap. He's soooooo cliche and lame. Elvis week=Blue Suede Shoes. Inspirational Song=this. Can you imagine the ridiculous music he'd try to put out later if he won this thing? I shudder at the thought.
"When You Believe"
"It sounded like a musical," said Kara. I totally agree.
"The leaves distracted me," stated Simon. I couldn't agree more.
"She speaks at half the speed of a normal person," said I. And then had to remember Lee to think of why I still watch this show.
Lemme get this straight, out of the 200 songs he had written in his little dream journal, he chose this one? Hmmmm...o.....kay? I'm so glad they replaced his normal sized guitar (which looked like a ukulele next to his hulking mass of a body) with one made for a half-giant. Proportions are key. As for the singing...eh. Who cares?
"People Get Ready"
I think someone read my post last week about how all her performances were the same. Cuz this one was very different from her other performances. I liked the acapella stuff at the beginning. So I'm going along, kinda enjoying myself, moving my head a little with the beat...then what in the ugly cry?? Choking sobs! Yuck! So embarrassing! I physically cringed. Plus, just because someone cries does not automatically make their performance brilliant. Fhs. It was good but standing ovation? Tears shmears. Did you just think pap? Yer gross. ::EDIT::: Tooootally forgot to mention the no cry in the recap!!! They must have used the footage from the dress rehearsal?? I call foul! That's cheating! We needed to see the hideousness again at the very end to make sure no one voted for her. I think the AI Execs have a favorite ::singsongy::
