>>Ryan is rying to be the next Dick Clak...and Im guessing at some level, he is telling himself to SUCK IT UP!<<

You could do worse than model yourself after the late Mr. Clark. And I agree: Dick Clark was also very relentless — not a lazy bone in his body.

Not her night. My bet is she will go home (dang it!)


The judges want her out.

Hollie Cavanagh
(1st Song)

Her Queen song is "Save Me". Never heard this one before, but she's doing a great job with it. Awesome!

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Steven: A good old-fashioned song with a melody, something I miss nowadays. (Liked it)

J-Lo: I really felt you get emotional in the middle of it. When you did do that if did go off a little bit. I want to see you enjoy it more. I still feel like you're thinking. (she jabbers on about how to have a good time on stage)

Randy: You've been having a lot of good performances. This was pretty solid for you. You can take more chances. Everyone needs to have a moment. That song didn't quite have that for me.

Steven adds (after being asked by Seacrest) that he doesn't need all the vocal gymnastics that current singers do and appreciates that Hollie stayed with the simple melody of the song.

The judges have BLATANTLY shown that they have wanted her out for at least the past 3 weeks, which is precisely why I hope the lass stays!

To be quite honest, so far, this is the best AI group number in probably forever.

Yep!

Joshua paired with Hollie for their part...sucked! he was WAY too loud and too DIVA...

I agree and he sounded the same during his solo performance. But the judges seem to like oversinging.

I am sorry Jonny, I disagree — she was pitchy and didn’t really give the song a home.

Unless she rescues herself in the next hour, Hollie is on the bubble.

Auto tune J Lo should not be critiquing her singing capability.

As odd as Steven can be at least he can sing.

BEST group number in my Fantasy American Idol game...is...Oh....let’s just say a bunch of us get together...and we have a “Jonny and the Vandellas” (Retrokitten and I will be playing the part of said Vandellas-—and no offense to you Jonny for asking you to be Martha Reeves ;-)
But hey...top billing, is top billing!

For the record...Jessica just LIED on National TV! The United States Navy does not “Deploy to Singapore!”
I do not care if she wins or losers, but do NOT lie about military, princess! (spit)

Joshua is definitely out of his element here!

I usually like him all right, but he's been annoying tonight. He and Queen songs don't mix, lol.

OK, P2 is cracking me up talking about Jessica.

She IS an amazing singer, and she is singing for her daddy. *sniff*

She is 16! She probably doesn’t know all the military terms.

My complaint is she is pushing this song really hard like a sofa cushion from her diaphragm.

Martha was on Dancing with the Stars this week for Motown Week. Not sure if her voice is mostly gone or maybe it was bad sound .

Oh, and Smokey Robinson just looked creepy singing since he had so much plastic surgery.

Yep ... I hope she wins just because of that. Jessica bombed that opening song and they praised her. Hollie did a great job on her first song and they threw her under the bus.

Sorry...she is playing up the fact that her daddy is in the military and was in Iraq and Afghanistan...that kid KNOWS the difference! ANY military brat KNOWS the difference. It pisses me off when the military is used! and that kid just used the military to HER advantage

Jessica Sanchez
(2nd Song)

Second round is Singer's Choice. And Jessica's choice is dedicated to her dad: "Dance With My Father" by Luther Vandross.

This is very good. She's actually singing instead of screaming.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

J-Lo: That may have been the best I've ever heard that song sang. The tenderness, the feeling, your vocal ability--that was the most beautiful I've ever heard it.

Steven: Your voice kind of touches on Whitney, but you've got your own thing. (Loved it)

Randy: I'm so amazed by the talent this year. You are truly amazing to me. Now you've got the feeling in there. Now you're making that connection. You know what was wrong with it? Absolutely nothing!

And on the other side, Skylar is so comfortable on stage.

It doesn’t matter whether she wins or not — she has a HUGE C/W career ahead of her!

Smokey Robinson’s face looks so plastic that it looks like his eyes can’t close. His face looks stiff.

I really like Holly. These judges have been working overtime trying to destroy her for some reason. Makes me wonder if something is going on behind the scenes. I think Holly has a lot of potential.

Skylar Laine
(2nd Song)

Her choice is "Tattoos On This Town" by Jason Aldean. The Country-twang is back and it sounds great. This could be her song. Very natural. Skylar for the win!

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Randy: I am a gi-normous fan! That range! You are fearless. You have a good time and it pours out to us.

J-Lo: You are so comfortable up there! You've hit your stride. You sleighed it.

Steven: You can do no wrong. Just be careful. Gotta find songs that take your voice to that place. But I enjoyed it.

Seacrest asks Skylar if she has any tattoos. She says yes, a small feather on her right wrist. What's the meaning behind that?

Skylar: That's to remind me that my problems are light as a feather because God is watching out for me.

If he just wouldn’t eat the freaking mike this would be a great number for Josh.

He needs training, but as much as I don’t want to like him, I do.

That down-step run at the end of the song was magnificent.
