I agree... I do think that was his best song in about 5 weeks. But I wouldn’t buy it. I would love to hear Simon’s take on this guy...
Randy stole some Horses cool down Blanket , and is wearing it as a Jacket.
Shankman has been a judge on Nigel’s other show.
Round #2 finally begins.
P2's choice is "Volcano" by Damien Rice. Not familiar with this song, but he's doing a good job with it. The lights are dimmed. A cellist plays to his left. A single back-up singer on his right. Perfect.
The Ferlies listen in rapt silence.
That was really excellent.
Steven: I heard the musician that time, man. I never heard you sing like that before. I could listen to that before. Bee--u--tee--full.
J-Lo: Very few people could have pulled that off. A real testament to you. One of the most beautiful poignant moments ever on this show. Really lovely.
Randy: That's what's up right there. You are your own guy. That's one of your best performances of the whole season. Sometimes a simple statement has the most volumn.
I’m in the minority here but I like P2. I thought he did a great job with this song!
He is my favorite judge on So You Think You Can Dance!
I have a hard time listening to a 16 yr old (Jessica) and Hollie (whatever age she is)...singing about deep emotional love and hurt...........hell, when I was their age, the only hurt I knew was when dad wouldnt give me the keys to the car! I just do not buy “teenagers” singing torch songs.
I echo what someone else said last week, he is good at what he does, as is Joshua. But forcing them into these theme or genre nights isn’t good for them. P2’s second song was worlds better tonight, IMO, because it was more “him.”
Randy Jackson prediction of winner
Wasn't Shankman the Buddhist monk in Anger Management?
“I can’t make you love me if you don’t”....now there is an Obama campaign slogan!
Yet again...they build up P2 and well....ANYONE but Hollie......hell, she wasnt that bad! They just want “their” pics.......(screw em! LOl)
Oh I so agree! And Skylar, after being eliminated, said as much...that she was only going to sing country on the tour because that’s who she is and she doesn’t do pop!
Tell me they aren’t trying to steer the votes. Kisses for the others, and critiques for Hollie.
No, that guy is the dude from the Will Ferrell nascar movie ...I think he talked about Little Baby Jesus but I cant remember .
I quite liked it, and I actually do like P2. I think that this show was just a way for him to get noticed, and I have no doubt that he will be signed regardless of what happens on Idol.
My SIL said she would buy his music, so I personally know at least one person who will. :^D
They totally threw her under the bus. They know she's out performing bebechez tonight and are trying to sway the vote.
Tell me they arent trying to steer the votes. Kisses for the others, and critiques for Hollie.
So true. Win, lose, or Draw Hollie is our favorite.
She sings Bonnie Raitt's "I Can't Make You Love Me". Great, but she might be trying too hard again. Over thinking. But it's still good.
STanding-o from the audience, but not the judges.
I won't bother transcribing their comments. They're throwing her under the bus.
Nah, I know. I heard the name Shankman and thought of the character Arnie Shankman from the movie.
Hi, Shelayne! :)
James Brown? Joshua?
Where is that enema again? *bleeeech*
Dontcha just want to pat Joshua on the head and say “Trust me Sweetums, you arent that cool”
Jennifer’s reaction to the announcement of her singing tomorrow night reminded me of Miss Piggy.
JLo really has a huge ego. And I thought that Kara Dioguardi had an ego.
It’s weird seeing the same songs being sung on The Voice and American Idol. Of all the songs available...maybe there is a narrow selection that are cheap enough to use.
I might have to vote tonight. I think Hollie is going to need help getting the tire tracks off her back.
It’s a Man’s World sung on The Voice
Let’s hear the judges critique Joshua’s lack of dynamics. From a screech to a scream.
I agree....she may not be the “best” BUT hOLY cRAP, THEY TREAT HER LIKE CHIT EVERY DAMNED WEEK!
Umm yeah. Pat on the head. Yep. You betcha.
So a standing O for Joshua......and I thought that was horrid!
I’d love to hear what the other three are saying right now about the judges after orgasming over Joshua.
These judges have NO credibility whatsoever...NONE
Jennifer’s hair is so 80’s tonight. It’s like she’s out of a Patrick Nagel print or American Psycho.
How can anyone listen to Joshua’s yelling without developing ear fatigue?
The judges are making fools of themselves.
Lets hear the judges critique Joshuas lack of dynamics. From a screech to a scream.
Judges are in the tank for Joshua. Randy hyping a screamer as the next
Coming of the messiah.
J Lo just proved it with her random babbling....
Ear fatigue?? Im calling the ASPCA! There are dogs in PAIN right now!
His choice is James Brown's "It's a Man's World". Mantasia is back, screeching and screaming his way into the judges' hearts.
They'll fall all over this.
I just want it to end.
Yep, judges give a standing-o. J-Lo even adds a "we're not worth" bow.
Steven: Neither man nor woman has ever sang that good or with much compassion (?) on this show before. I could go home right now! I never heard anything that before in my life.
J-Lo: (rambles in Spanish) You're making me speak different languages now!
Randy: The greatest song for you. One of the best performances ... yada yada Woo-woo yo-yo what up dog. He loved it.
Either that, or trying out for the part of Joan, after they kick her arse off AI, for being a judge that is dumb as a brick
She just needs some big ole shoulder pads, and she is good to go!
Joshua. You don’t qualify to be in a mans world......
I noticed a couple of times when JHo was talking that Steven and Randy at times will relax in their chairs and you can see them, then suddenly like a bolt of lightning they are out of the picture. I winder if she has scolded them about being in her space when the camera in on HER.
Wow, just checking in to see if I had lost my mind. These judges are ridiculous. Good to see I’m not the only one.Think I just might vote for Hollie tonight.
