And here is what I thought of last night’s performances:
Side Bar: Um… Is it just me or has Mariah Carey turned into what appears to be a full-fledged ‘Ho-Bag’?
Anyway. On to the contestants….(in no particular order.)
She sang, Vanishing (which I have never heard by Mariah) so I didn’t really have something to compare it to. First of all, she looked Fan-Fucking-Tastic. Secondly, I thought she sang her little heart out. She ran with those notes. She worked that stage. And did done good.
He sang, another Mariah song that I did not know. However, he also managed to pull off a pretty decent performance. I mean, no, he is not as talented as some of the other contestants, but he wasn’t awful. But if he would just cut that damn hair he would be absolutely stunning.
Kristy Lee Cook:
Country Chick gave Mariah Carey goose bumps? I think Mariah needs to start getting drug tested. She must be drinking out of the same cup as Paula. While I loved her hair, I thought her performance was flat. Flat. Dull. Blah. Boring. Big deal, she hit One Good Note all the way at the end. The rest, ‘forgettable’.
Hm…. Always Be My Baby. Well, I know that song very well. It is one of my all time favorite Maraiah songs. Like Ever. I could never imagine a man singing this version, and I have to say……..
I am ‘In Love’ with his version. I can not get over what he did to the end of that song. Holy Fucking Amazing. That is ready to be in a movie sound track. He was absolutely brilliant. That is the David Cook I have come to love this season. He has transformed every single song and made it his own.
She sang, Without You, and she redeemed herself from last weeks disaster. I loved her version of that song, and I loved her dress. (It was almost shocking to see her look like a lady last night.) Well Done. For ONCE I disagreed with Simon.
Aw. He was so overwhelmed when he met Mariah Carey. That was adorable. As for his singing, he was amazing. There is no question in my mind this kid is going to be around for a Long Ass Time. Simply Terrific. What a perfect way to start the evening.
Yep. Still Crazy. There is something in her eyes…that freaks me out
a little. A Lot. As for her singing, Hero, I was unimpressed. She sang way too fast, way too raspy, way too rushed. It was a very forced, rather pitchy and an off key effort. And now I am done with her. (PS: I am cringing at the thought/idea of a ‘card-board-cut-out’ of her sitting at any wedding reception.)
I think Syesha, KLC, and Brooke might be in The Bottom Three. Who are your guesses for going home this week?
