Tonight, the girls sing!
Crystal is up first after going to the hospital last night. I am digging this girl's groove! Very nice!
Haeley - Ah, for me, it sounds like she tried to go R&B with it, but was stuck somewhere between country and R&B or something. And, I'm sorry, but the lisp just rubs me sideways. Should it? Of course not. But in a singer/performer, it does. Emily loved it.
Lacey - Hmm. Well, I'm not sure she sounds much different than the original version of the song. The high-pitched "cutesy voice" annoys me. Emily, on the other hand, just said she loves her voice. There ya go.
Katie - Emily is dancing up a storm to this girl and her records on. LOL. I think she's doing a very good job with the song. Not bad. Shan just said, "I think the girls are doing much better than the boys." I agree!
Didi - Ouch, a little flat there in spots (re, well, to my ears anyway). I tried REALLY hard to like this, but… no. I just couldn't get passed something in her voice.
Michelle - Whoa, okay, not thinking so here. Can you say nightclub? We like her, but this was way, way wrong.
Lilly - Man, I like her, but I do not like her version of 'change gonna come.' Man, what a bummer. Emily likes her name. And that she plays different instruments.
Katelyn - I don't know why, but I like her singing and playing the piano. She seems to be singing this from the heart, really into it. Emily liked her piano playing too.
Paige - Wow, "Walk Away" with a weird R&B twist. Well, until the chorus. Why change up the whole song and then fall back on the standard chorus for the most part!? I don't think this works. I'm sure the judges will disagree.
Siobhan - Wow, Aretha. Okay, so let's see. She's got some soul in there for sure. Man, I really like her voice. Not too crazy about the look, but she's got skillz.
Okay, let's see who gets the boot:
Wow, okay, I actually liked "I gotta feeling" very well done!
