I think I had those same pants Jessica is wearing in 7th grade.
I finally figured out what Jessica reminds me of....the Phillipino Karaoke babes in the bars overseas....they were fantastic at mimicing...(and evidently judging by Jessicas performance here....SCREAMING too....I am not liking this screaming version of Try a Little Tenderness
I’m not even sure WHAT that was!
OK, I was wrong. But she still needs an upper molar.
I think Miss Sanchez just screamed at me.
Should I be scared?
That was awful. She just screamed the whole song. Her first song was great, this was just all around bad.
ONly if she also has a Fiddle ;-) LMAO
I think Ryan does that because he is flashing back to the days when he was either picked last or not picked at all for Dodge-ball...
Great armchair psychoanalysis. I agree that Ryan has some deep need to lord all the judgments over the contestants. What about the wishing them “luck” right before he tells them what has already been cast, what he already knows,and is on the card in his hand??
If I wasn’t watching... I’m not sure I could have known if it was her or Joshua...
She can certainly sing. But I’m tired of the screaming. That seems to be her way of hitting the upper register.
She's back with Otis Redding's "Try A Little Tenderness". More growl-singing. Her "tenderness" sounds very angry.
Steven: You've done it again. Love that you're stepping out. It's about winning these peoples' heart. Come on.
J-Lo: America has got to start connecting with you here. Just the voice ain't gonna do it, but because when it comes to voice, you it!
Randy: People respond to the emotion. You can sing like nobodies buisness.
I know several hispanics who look asian. It confuses me.
I didn’t like either song she sang tonight. And I don’t care how much the judges carried on like silly fools over her, I GOT EARS!
What’s kind of sad, Jessica does have a nice powerful voice, but that growling and screaming and the judges obvious favoritism doesn’t do well for her.
Oh no the stalking fiddler is back.
She's 15 and 36 pounds. I think you'll be okay. :-D
LOL I was going to say that MC Hammer wanted his pants back!
Skylar doing a nice job on "grapevine" -- she is the one to beat.
I can see a lot of people line dancing to that version of “heard it through the grapevine”
They probably had to glue Obama’s hand to his chest.
Rofl! And only because it was an election year!
LMAO He was lurking at stalker distance behind her, too (about 15 feet).
Can you imagine him pep talking himself in the dressing room before the show? “Okay, this is it, Stalker Fiddler. My time to shine. Drink me in America. Drink. Me. In.”
>>I finally figured out what Jessica reminds me of....the Phillipino Karaoke babes in the bars overseas..<<
No think more dan
And the Ferlies are thinking she is singing a song made popular by the California Raisins LOL
She sings "Heard It Through The Grapevine". Now I'm awake again :) This is great.
Randy: Tonight has shown me something very interesting. You and Phillip have no problem connecting with the audience. Every time you come out it's a Skylar Laine Party. That's how you sell records. She wants it, Jennifer.
J-Lo: We love your spunkiness. I loved the first song, this was good too. You should feel proud of yourself!
Steven: You're like a wild horse that refuses to be tamed.
Seacrest: You're singing like you have plans for May 23rd, which is our finale.
Skylar: Oh I hope so!
The question is.......How many illegal aliens is he trying to smuggle into the country in those pants.
OMG I just spit out my root beer. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Well, that could also describe a rabid raccoon. ;^)
I repeat: Skylar is the one to beat. She is consistent and has that “wow” factor...
RIP dick Clark. I really didn’t see American bandstand much. But I remember him emceeing the Miss America pageants when I was little. Didn’t he? I do remember him doing the new year count down and always looking young. The only other celebrity who does not age is John Stamos.
Or the “dont put your cup on my furniture” version.......”Tea rings...no ting more den Tea rings......
Ryan before the plastic surgery
Time to vote out Joshua and his growling Change song
Hey, Josh sent out for some soul...
This is pretty good for an almost white dude from the ‘burbs.
Joshua makes Geraldine from X-Factor seem almost masculine!
Parts of that I liked really well... other parts not so much? The kid can sing though... no doubt.
He finishes the show with Sam Cooke's "A Change Is Gonna Come". Yet, more growl-singing. But from Mantasia, it's not as annoying.
Steven: You have stretched your voice to the limits of soul. Everybody heard that! Your voice just climbs inside you.
J-Lo: I still want more at the end. Please, America don't send this boy home!
Randy: This song was perfect for you. You took your time. You let it marinate. The talent on Idol this season is better than any show on TV. Period!
Missed last week and might miss tonight though I hope not to. We are on vacation in Lake Tahoe. Last week we were in a hotel and watching my son’s gymnastics meet, so no chance to watch Idol, and now we are in a condo with great tv but no DVR and we still need to go out to dinner. Hoping to get back before 8 to watch the show.
I loved reading through the thread of last week’s shows. I really felt like I was there for the cheesy save of Jessica.
Thanks, Jonny, for this wonderful thread. I love escaping to it.
We are loving winter and snow!! It’s so exciting to us Angelinos! I was in full ski gear today and back home it was supposed to be near 90! This place is gorgeous.
Elise is probably going home :-\
Best of the night is a toss up for me between Hollie and Skylar.
IT’S TIME FOR “REVENGE”!!!!!
Deck the harrs with barrs of horry
Fa ra ra ra ra- ra ra ra ra!
Once again, I agree with you. We are mind melding tonight. LOL
My bottom 3:
Elise- going home
Colton- the Ferlie’s will never let Colton Cullen go
Jessica - as good as the first song was good, the second was bad, but she’ll probably be safe.
Deck the harrs with barrs of horry
Fa ra ra ra ra- ra ra ra ra!
I tend to agree with you...but give Skylar the top spot
