|Aaron finally went home last week. Tonight: Jamie Foxx mentors the singers through movie songs. Also: duets. |
Lee: "Kiss From a Rose"; Seal, from "Batman Forever". It's not bad, but not all that original; it's a bit of a coffee-house cover. Along with one or two bum notes, I'm thinking that this clearly isn't his best performance. It's hard to see him going home, though.
Michael: "Will You Be There"; Michael Jackson, from "Free Willy". He's clearly into it, and the gospel vibe works here. It's vocally pretty good, but the song choice may not connect with people; it's kind of a Disney-esque arrangement. And at this point, I think he's just running out of fans.
Crystal and Lee: "Falling Slowly"; Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, from "Once". I don't really know what to make of these duets. The judges absolutely love it; I wasn't all that inspired.
Casey: "Mrs. Robinson"; Simon and Garfunkel, from "The Graduate". He's still got that over-vibrato problem. And it's a little bit simple. But the arrangement is original, and it suits him. This will connect with his fans, I think.
Crystal: "I'm Alright"; Kenny Loggins, from "Caddyshack". (Kenny Loggins: Danja zone!) The arrangement is cool at the beginning, but it gets less interesting in the chorus. It's a little bit shouty; I thought she could have made it more musical. She should still be safe.
Michael and Casey: "Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman"; Bryan Adams, from "Don Juan De Marco". Possibly the sappiest song ever written. Really. Really really really. Michael is singing okay, but there's no way I can possibly like this.
Best performance: Tough call; I wasn't impressed by anyone tonight. Crystal?
Bottom two: Michael, Casey.
Going home: Michael.
