Well the girls were just ok again last night so lets see if the guys can get things rolling tonight and get this season of Idol on the right track.
Lee Dewyze: To me Lee is always a bit pitchy but it seems tonight that he has corrected those issues and he really looks comfortable with this song. I think Lee is Top 10 bound for sure but not sure he can go Top 5 if he doesnt improve a bit more. Judges were just ok with the performance. Id say it was a little better than average. Grade: B-
Alex Lambert: WOW great song selection. Love this song. Please dont butcher it Alex. Alex's smokey voice is a great fit for this song but I dont like his little Jason Mrzaisms he throws into all his songs. I thought his performance was better than that of Lee's and so far the guys are way out performing the girls. Grade: B
Tim Urban: Ok dream boat please suck again this week so you can get voted off. Tim has skated by the last 2 weeks and Im ready for him to be gone. Unfortunately he really isnt doing bad at all tonight. No pitch problems and a good song selection in my opinion. Maybe Ill get lucky and the judges will hate it and make people not vote for him. Nope not lucky they like it. Grade: B-
Andrew Garcia: So far easily my favorite performer of this season. He was a little off last week so I hope he can get it back going tonight. Interesting version of this song thats for sure. I really loved the end of the song when he really started to get into it. I would agree with Randy that it seemed like there was only like 3 notes to the song until like I said the end. Judges were a little overly harsh just because he has been so good in the past. They think he is going backwards rather than forward. Grade: B
Casey James: Casey is the female favorite and that will take him a long way in this competition but besides to that he has really impressed me with his voice. He is impressing me again tonight and this was a very good song choice for him. I think the ending was a little off but again I thought he performed well. I dont know if Randy likes to name drop or whatever but he said Casey James needs to go back to his Stevie Ray vibe which he has none of. He is no Stevie Ray Vaughan but needless to say he is a force to be reckoned with in this competition. Judges say it was a safe song but he sounded great. Grade: B-
Aaron Kelly: I think Aaron is another kid that is on the chopping block. He has a strong voice but he is very countryish and like in years past those male country singers dont make it a long way in this competition. Very bad vocals in a lot of spots tonight. And it seems as if he knows it. Worst performance of the night so far. Randy likes it for some reason, Ellen wasnt a fan, and neither was Kara. I liked how Simon slammed Kara for saying she didnt like the song because it wasnt relatable to a 16 year old kid cause it was about a married man etc. Thats just a weak response to a performance. Who cares about it its relatable or not its how the song is sung. Grade: C-
Todrick Hall: Lets hope this isnt the opposite of the girls night and have the last few guys stink it up. I really like Todrick and think he has the best stage presence of all the guys. Very strong vocals tonight once again for Todrick. The ending was a little bad as he seemed to struggle a bit on the last note but its a hard note to hit. Very good performance. Now Kara is slamming Todrick for being over dramatic singing a Queen song fronted by Freddie Mercury one of the most dramatic lead singers there has ever been. Normally I like Kara but not tonight. Simon thinks Todrick saved himself tonight and I would have to agree. Grade: B
Mike Lynche: Mike might be in some trouble tonight. I think the newborn baby vote is going to start to wear off. Wow very strong vocal from Mike tonight. I would say his best so far. Not sure of the dance moves but a great vocal. I might even say the best of the night, in fact I will. In fact Im calling this the performance of the night. Man the guys really came with it tonight. The judges love it. And Kara gets back into my good graces with her tears. Man a crying hot chick is pretty hot right? Grade: A
It is too bad that we cant get rid of 4 girls tomorrow night cause they deserve to lose 4 as the guys just kicked their vagina's right off stage tonight. Its hard to pick a loser tonight but Id have to say that Aaron Kelly and Tim Urban are still in trouble as well as Alex and Todrick but none of that is based on this weeks performance as they all did well minus Aaron.
