My quick, honest, as-it-went take….
Hollie- Rolling in the Deep——- Her best effort in weeks- but her time is still running out.
Colton- Bad Romance—— I liked the verse- hated the chorus- the key was too low (Randy was right)— but he sure is playing the game!
Elise- No One——— I really like No One—- but this was just kinda weird. Her body movement and the wind and stuff. It was sleepy and kinda loungy. She’ll be in the bottom three, again.
Phillip- U Got It Bad——- The lyric is “Been there, done it, HUMPED AROUND.” Sing it right, punk. J But really, this was my favorite thing he has done- but I’m still not rooting for him.
Jessica- Fallin’——- She’s the best in the competition, for sure. Loved her look tonight- and of course, she’s great on Fallin’.
Skylar- Born this Way—- I like her lot— Though I don’t dig country, I’m really rooting for her to go as far as she can. If Lauren Alaina can, golly she can too.
Joshua- I Believe- I like him as a singing competition contestant, but he really won’t have a chance in today’s marketplace. Tis a conundrum. Oh yeah- and he needs to exude more personality when he’s not singing.
Hollie- Son of a Preacher’s Man—— LOVE that pink dress look. Stylists really rocked it tonight. She’s really coming out swinging with some personality, tonight! Good to see- again, might be too late.
Colton- September——- Eh—this just kinda reminds me that I don’t intentionally listen toColton’s genre of angsty, whiny alt-rock. This just underwhelmed. Uh oh- and some criticism.
Elise- Let’s Get It On——- Again, she’s reallllly loungy tonight. Like- she’s not really focused or something. If Simon were here, he’d say we’d hear her in a hotel bar. Annnnd she’s getting Haley’d.
Phillip- In the Midnight Hour——— I’m just so over this kid….
Jessica- Try A Little Tenderness—— I liked this a lot- This reminded me of her bestHollywoodperformance with Deandre- love that growl….
Skylar- Heard it Through the Grapevine——- Not as strong as Born this Way. But her energy is infectious.
Joshua- A Change is Gonna Come- I know he will always be good—I’m kinda getting bored- wish he did more Bruno Mars type stuff that stretched him. Like, I know this song has been in his repertoire forever—which is fine—but he’s not coming with the fire in his eyes. He won’t win just doing this over and over….
My prediction for bottom 3?- Hollie, Elise, and I would be GLEEFUL if Colton or Phillip got a taste of the bottom 3— but it could be Joshua or Skylar. I do hope Jessica is far away from it this week.
