Yeah, I agree......I get so aggravated...I was hoping they were going to fix it....they certainly get the money to do so.

She is cute as a bug’s ear, but she is missing the notes.

I think Whitney is one of our “do not try this at home” artists...

Yes.

What I want to know is why is she wearing a road worker safety vest under her jacket?

Jessica Sanchez

She has also picked up the habit of talking about herself in third person. "Baby Jess is gonna nail this!"

She attempts to nail Whitney Houston's "I Want To Know". Cruise ship. But it's good to see and hear her sing something upbeat.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

J-Lo: Two powerhouse vocals in a row. Such a natural peformer. I'm listening to you and I can't even believe that voice is coming out of you. Really good performance.

Steven: You're voice is so fantastic. Everything you do is beautiful.

Randy: I had the pleasure of working on that song. I can't believe the maturity in you. Ryan, she's gotta have it too!

Randy is trying desperately to be relevant...but has resorted to dressing like the center ring clown at Barnum and Baileys Circus...so it is only a matter of time before he coins a new word...since his DAWG died!

“worked with Whitney on this song” means he came in and played bass on the song while Whitney was out on the town doing coke....

They’re really phasing out the Hilfiger segments, aren’t they. He barely gets a nod in the audience.

This duet is a serviceable version of this song.

But whenever I hear it, I always harken to “Stop Draggin’ my Car Around” by Weird Al.

It is pretty good, but you can tell Phil is not comfortable performing without his guitar.

Duet #3

Elise & Phillips tackle "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around". I want to hear Elise, but Phillips--and the vein protruding from his forehead--keep drowning her out. But it's okay.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Randy: Elise, welcome back! I wanted to hear more of that!

J-Lo: (liked it)

Steven: A Tom Petty moment wrapped up in Elise and Phillip. (also liked it)

I really like the way this one is working the stage.

It is a little Broadway but heck, it is from “Fame!”

Thst song needed to be about 6 beats per minute faster. And a minor third higher... just didn’t get it...

This is from Flashdance.

Hollie Cavanagh

After some technical difficulties (a keyboard wasn't working), Hollie sings "What A Feeling". Maybe not the best choice, but I'm enjoying this. I like her voice no matter what she sings.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Steven: Your pitch was all over the place. (complains it took her too long to build up the song)

J-Lo: (urges her again to let go) You have to forget what they tell you when you get up there. Stop thinking and start feeling.

Randy: You have the talent. You're voice is amazing. Couple of pitchy kind of moments.

I want to hear one of em sing Tina Turners “Funkier than a Muskeeters Tweeter” ;-)

(I have no idea what made me think of that tune...but I did...and got a good chuckle out of it)

I agree. It struck me as slow and flat. dull

So far I like Joshua the best. There have been a few clunkers tonight. I didn’t care for Jessica tonight.

In high school choir, every year we would sing this medley of two songs from Fame and I still know every single word.

“And I’ll look back on Venus and I’ll look back on Mars and I’ll burn with the fire of ten thousand stars...”

Jessica and Joshua sound 10,000 times better in this duet then they did individually. IMO, singing it as a duet made them both reign it in and it was so much better.

Duet #4

Jessica and Joshua sing "I Knew You Were Waiting For Me". It's very good. But ... I'm waiting for it to end.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Randy: Two of the greatest singers we've ever had the pleasure of having in this competition. This is one of the greatest performances ever. (the audience doesn't seem quite as enthusiastic)

J-Lo: Amazing!

Steven: So over the top it defies judging. Only to be enjoyed.
