Scotty was first with “Country Comfort”. He is gonna sail right through this competition if he keeps doing what he is doing: making any song he sings into a country song. I agree with Randy when he said that the song sounded like it could be on his record. He is great and there is no doubt about it that he is safe this week.
I do have to agree with Randy about Naima’s performance of “I’m Still Standing”. It did kinda seem corny. I thought it was gonna be alright at the beginning, but then I just didn’t like it. I just didn’t like it at all. I think she could be in danger. It’s only the second performance though, so I may be speaking too soon.
Next was Paul with “Rocket Man”. Now if you read my blog, you know how I feel about Paul, I’m not really a fan. But he has been growing on me. And I think tonight he was pretty good. I agree with Jennifer though when she said she thinks he’s holding back. He could have done better, but he will be safe.
Pia sang “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down On Me” and she did a wonderful job! She is definitely safe!!!
Up next was Stefano singing “Tiny Dancer”. I really liked his performance, too. His stage presence was great!! That was awesome at the end when he went down to Jennifer and held her hand.
Lauren sang “Candle In the Wind”. We will definitely be seeing her in the finale! She is a breath of fresh air. She was born to be singing!!
James sounded great singing “Saturday Night’s Alright”. I loved how he started up in the audience! He has great stage presence and you can tell he loves being up there!! That was awesome when he jumped up and did a split in the air! Another no brainer here…he’s gonna be safe!
Thia was next singing “Daniel”. I didn’t see much wrong with it, other than a few pitch issues like Randy pointed it out. I think based on that, and how well the other ones have been so far, that she may be in danger.
Casey sang “Your Song”. I liked it better than last week and can kind of understand why they saved him.
Next was Jacob singing “Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word”. You know, he is kind of growing on me as well. I haven’t liked him in the past but I thought he did a good job tonight and I kind of liked it.
Wait, the song is “Bennie and the Jets”??? I always thought it was “Betty”!! Wow, I can’t believe when I hear it on the radio at work that I’ve been singing it wrong, haha. And you know what? I actually enjoyed Haley’s performance of it. And this may be the first week that I think she’s safe.
I almost forgot that 2 people leave tonight. Alright, then I think it will be Thia and Naima. I don’t know if they are going to do two bottom 3’s or just one, so I won’t bother choosing a bottom 3. What do you think? Which two contestants do you think are leaving?
