Haven't read the thread yet, but here are my notes.
Nicholas-I thought he was a bit flat a few times. Too subdued. Too safe, but a bad song choice even so. No wow moments at all. I'm surprised by this performance and disappointed.
Cassadee-Excellent. Lots of wow moments. Loved it. She was terrific.
Amanda-She looks great tonight. This was actually my favorite performance by her, so far.
Terry-I don't like the song. The words I like, but not the tune. Never liked it. I didn't think it was as good as the judges thought it was. Some of it sounded like yelling. Not his best for me.
Trevin- Sheesh. He sounded awful practicing this. WTH on the song choice. I think CeeLo threw him under the bus with this song. I really like this kid, but he didn't have any big moments like he's capable of. Probably in danger.
Melanie-Is she wearing a wig? I keep thinking of Alice in Wonderland when I look at her. I do think she's crazy like she said in the song. Not a good performance. Flat and pitchy. Same ole thing.
Terry-Love the song and loved the performance. Much better than the first one.
Trevin-Finally the right song! The boy knows what he can do. Too bad CeeLo didn't let him do it earlier. Loved this!!! Favorite of the night, so far. Damn, he can sing and I felt it. I don't think he can or will win, but I want this kid to be successful. First time I agreed with what Christina said because she made some sense and spoke the truth.
Amanda-The tumblers were cheesy. Again, she looks terrific. Great job with some wow moments, but it didn't quite go the top for me especially after Trevin. I liked her first performance better.
Melanie-Are you kidding me with this song and this set? It's just plain silly. This time she reminds me of that clown on Comfy Couch or maybe this is an SNL skit. I was bored and felt sorry for her. Adam shouldn't have let that one go on or allowed that stupid set. Christina was outrageous with that singing. So unnecessary. Someone should have clocked her.
Cassadee-Loved it. Enough said. She's a star.
Nicholas-I love this song and I enjoyed his rendition. He's got nothing on Carly Rose. Not the best night for him at all, overall. The hands and the bowing are really annoying and getting very old.
Actually, I liked Trevin so much that the one song puts him at the top of my list this week.
Next, Cassadee, Amanda, Terry, Nicholas and way down there is Melanie.
