Here we go!
A new format, as the top 3 in each group each week get to stay on, with a wild card round for the last 3 contestants.
Here are my 3 to go on:
Danny Gokey, by a country mile. This man is going to win the whole enchilada, IMHO!
Alexis Grace, because she was the best of the female vocalists
Anoop Desai, because he has the talent, even if he didn't show it tonight.
Here's what I thought of tonight:
Jackie Tone ~ not, not, not!
I totally agree with Simon...clownish.
Didn't like her look with the painted-on pants, and I really disliked her over-the-top performance.
Ricky Braddy ~ ok, just ok.
I don't agree with Randy, I thought he was screechy,and his tonal value was not good.
Again, I agree with Simon. He is a shy guy with a nice voice.
*Alexis Grace ~ I think she's good, I'm not fond of the voice, though.
Maybe, it's the style...I'm not a R & B fan nor a jazz fan, so that might be it.
Still, she did good.
Brent Keith ~ Hmmmm, not a strong voice, just ordinary for me.
Millions of better songs to choose than this one...yikes! Poor choice for this one-shot opportunity.
Nice guy, looks great!
Stevie Wright ~ Oh, dear. Not a great beginning to the song.
She'll go home early. Disastrous, actually. Pitchy all over the map.
How did she slip into this group? I agree with Randy...how on earth did she get here?
Anoop Desai ~ Finally.
Here's a guy who can deliver a song...but, wait!
He was off-key!
NOTE: Isn't anyone going to sing well tonight?
Casey Carlson ~ Aaaarggggghhhhh.
Too much facial commotion going on, makes me not want to watch her.
Off-key, off-key, off-key.
Can I go to bed, now?
Unbelievably bad night.
Michael Sarver, please sing a great song!
Danny Gokey, please bring on Danny Gokey. PLEASE!
Michael Sarver ~ ummmm, not great.
Sad, because he has a great voice.
Anne Marie Boskovich ~ Yawn...bad song choice. Bad.
Steven Fowler ~ This was just awful, and he really had only one great note.
Too bad, because I think he can really sing.
Tonight was not his night.
Tatiana Nicole Del Toro ~
She's singing Whitney.
Good for Simon!
Finally, he called it as he saw it!
The world's #1 Drama Queen.
*Danny Gokey ~ He reminds me of Robert Downey, Jr.
I rest my case.
He is fantastic.
And, what was with the disjointed programming tonight?
Video clips that wouldn't run on cue for the contestants, people talking over top of Ryan's commentary...it really felt like a dress rehearsal to me, very poorly edited.
Chats with all those parents felt just plain uncomfortable to me.
They were clearly out of their element.
This felt like amateur night at the local pub with the karaoke machine.
