Ooo, Jamie Foxx as the mentor, love him. I didn't know he was so successful as a singer, by the way. I thought acting was his huge claim to fame. Man, I am almost criminally unhip. Kris: Kind of cheesy sounding. Hey, did anyone else think he looked a little Fred Flintstoney there in the beginning when they did the close-up? Hm, not his best performance if you ask me. Can't believe those judges are just raving about him. (TubaDad said "That was really good" at the end of his performance. So there you have it, a divided house...) Allison: Aw, she looks cute. Wow, she's not very good at public speaking, is she? That birthday story she told Ryan seemed forced, like she remembered that the judges told her to be more likable and was trying too hard. Woooo, that was some great singing though, I really liked it. And I was ready to give up on her last week, now she's back in my top two. (TubaDad said "Eh, wrong voice for that style.") Matt: I'm not a Matt fan but I really liked this one. I thought the restraint and control during the song sounded so nice. It could have been shrieky but wasn't at all, it was just a very pleasant-sounding song. (TubaDad said "That was ok.") Danny: Great job! Liked the vocals, liked the expressions on his face, liked the tempo, liked it all. I think this was my favorite Danny performance. (TubaDad said "It was surprisingly better than I thought it would be.") Adam: Laughing out loud about Jamie's comments to Adam in the coaching session. The timing seemed a little off during the beginning of this song. Ok, I am Adam's #1 fan, but this one seemed soooo showboaty to me for some reason. Yikes. Didn't love it, and I love everything he does. Actually liked the song better when he sang it in rehearsal (with Jamie). I think this week was a miss. (TubaDad said "It's kinda too theatrical, it doesn't fit the genre. He overdid it and the end was weak.") Ok, my ranking for this week: 1. Danny 2. Allison 3. Matt 4. Adam 5. Kris TubaDad's ranking for this week: 1. Danny 2. Adam 3. Kris 4. Matt 5. Allison What are your thoughts on the show? TubaDad and I are staying up LATE to watch this show tonight, it's almost midnight. The girls are having a sleepover at Wela and BobBob's and we are practically giddy at the thought that we get to sleep in tomorrow. Shoot, I might get all wild and crazy and stay up for another hour!
