Does this sound like the worst idea ever for creating a "hit" record.

"Hey every bozo in your basement send me lines I can use, 'cause they sure ain't workin for you."

Hi Jonny,

I’m not sure what to think of the show so far. The first guy sounded the same, Holly did fine, but I will be just fine not hearing her sing that song again, ditto that for what Joshua is doing.

Yeah, it’s jut okay for me. Very theatrical, but it doesn’t have that nice warmth that Josh Groban has.

How is this song about California?? I think I am missing the connection.

Joshua is lacking emotion, this song is all about the emotions and he just feels flat to me.

Haha! I’m the opposite. When it’s a good version that makes me want to hear the original. When it’s a bad version I want to completely erase the song from my memory.

Im guessing Joshua (in his infinite wisdome) Figured since Josh Groban is from California...this is a California song...as opposed to an old English hymn SHEESH!

Joshua Ledet
(1st Song)

His pick is Josh Groban's "You Raise Me Up". Zzzzzzz. Predictably, a choir materializes for the big finish. And a raising platform--"you raise me up". Subtle. I'm not a Groban fan, but this doesn't compare to the original.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

J-Lo: I think the whole world knows what I think of Joshua already. Such amazing singers. You last four, I kinda thought that's who would be here. I liked the "dramma". Keep it consistent to the end. You could end up right there.

Steven: You sang you're little tush off. The world is accepting you like .... uh ... nobodies business.

Randy: Brought it to "chuch". I'm so excited to see what you do. Giant career ahead of you.

I listen to “meh” performances, and the judges act like three cheerleaders. What they have to say is boring. How many synonyms of “Wow!” can they lather over a contestant?

It cracks me up, but does not surprise me, that J-LO can not complete a single sentence without refering to her note cards a minimum of 3 times.

Someone should have kept track this season, because I’m sure it’s into the thousands by now. They hardly criticize anyone.

I totally didn't buy Jessica's version of that song.

They reminded us she is 16 and then sings that tune about what, cheating? sex?

I have a hunch that Stevie and Randy are suffering form a LOT of hearing loss after their years in front of AMPS...because what they are “hearing” and saying is akin to the second coming of Frank Sinatra, in my estimation...sucks worse than a bad Cher impersonation!

Jessica Sanchez
(1st Song)

She makes a bold choice: Etta James' "Steal Away". I actually like this. Her growling works for this song. Very good.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

J-Lo: I'm happy to see the growl was there from the beginning. Is that something that came natural? Crazy, crazy, crazy. You're just one of the best.

Steven: I loved it. I'm currently doing an Etta James song myself, "Shakey Ground".

Randy: (Blues and Soul has so much pain) For you to be able to tap into that ... That girl right there can sing the phonebook! Amazing!

As tired as I am of P Squared....I would crack up if the finals were P2 and Hollie...particularly after the grovelling and bowing down and drooling praise of Jessica and Joshua by the judges all season.......

What in the wild wild world of sports uis up with this CONTINUAL pairing up of Joshua and P2? Havent we suffered from enough gay agenda in the news today without them trying to make these 2 a couple? SHEESH! Give it a rest already!! (at least this song sounds better than the last one they did together...but that is small consolation)

Duet #1: Forehead Vein and Mantasia again, singing Maroon 5's "This Love". This is much better (and much less gay) than their duet last week.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Steven: Best song, best vocal, best duet. Everything was perfect. Whoever picked that song, it was perfect. Thanks, Nigel (Lythgoe, in the front row, takes credit)

J-Lo: An unexpected treat.

Randy: You guys brought a little something else to it. You had fun with it.
