It’s time for the girls to show their stuff again. Will they blow away the boys like they did last week? Read on.
Gina Glocksen sang “Alone” by Heart. And we’re back with the dedications, of course. She sent out her song to her boyfriend. Oh this is good. Ann and Nancy Wilson would be proud – this girl’s got some pipes!! Really enjoyed it. Did not enjoy the dress, however. When do these people get stylists? Not soon enough. They should just hire me.
Alaina Alexander sang “Not Ready to Make Nice” by the Dixie Chicks and dedicated it to her mom. I’m confused why she would dedicate this song to her mom, maybe it doesn’t mean what she thinks it does. Whatever, it doesn’t matte. Her singing, not her lack of comprehension, is going to get her booted out of here. That sucked. I love it when they say, “You look amazing.” Translation – girl, you can’t sing, hope your good looks get you by.
LaKisha Jones sang “Midnight Train” to Georgia Gladys Knight and dedicated it to her grandmother, who seems like a little firecracker. Okay, is that a wig? And were her boobs this big last week? Whoa. Okay, she redeems herself with the singing, at least. She’s got an old school style and soul. I like her. I agree with Simon about her attitude and outfit – she needs to act more sure of herself and get a stylist!
Singing “My Funny Valentine” by Frank Sinatra was Melinda Doolittle who dedicated her song to her two best friends. And one of those friends is a stylist. Let’s see if she’s any good. She is! I like her outfit, nicely done. Ooh, she’s got some real old world jazzy, soulful smoothness going on with her voice. Mega talented, this one! Wow. Chills for sure with this performance. Her singing made me forget all about her lack of a neck. “Breath of fresh air”, indeed.
Oooh! Nude pictures on the internet chick, Antonella Barba, is up next in a fugly dress! She’s dedicating her song to her brother. Awww. Antonella sang “Because You Loved Me” by Celine Dion. She did a lot better this week than last, but she’s got some really strong competition, I’m not sure this will measure up. She’s got an attitude, too, and doesn’t like the judges criticizing her. Gotten toughen up, girlie!
Jordin Sparks also dedicated her song to her brother. She sang “Reflection” by Christina Aguilera. I loved this girl last week, but this week I’m not feeling it as much. She did an okay job, but I didn’t love it. I still really like her, though, because she’s so sweet.
Stephanie Edwards sang “Dangerously in Love” by Beyonce and dedicated the song to her parents. Amazing that she had no desire to audition for this show until they pushed her. The beginning was a bit of a mess, but man, what an ending on that one! WOW!
Leslie Hunt dedicated her song to her belated grandfather. She sang “Feeling Good” by Nina Simone. There were some nice moments in there, but this was one of my least favorites of the night. I like the husky tones to her voice, but her voice is just not very big. I think she’s in danger tonight.
Haley Scarnato sang “The Queen of the Night” by Whitney Houston and dedicated to it her fiancee. Another one in danger, I think. I agree with the judges – the background vocals drowned her out and she definitely didn’t like hearing she sucked. The truth hurts, honey!
Sabrina Sloan dedicated her song to her grandmother. Can I just say how much I hate these dedications? Because I do. She sang “All The Man That I Need” by Whitney Houston. That wasn’t a great song choice for her, there was too much yelling going on, but she did do a nice job.
Overall, there wasn’t too much yelling like we had last week, so that was refreshing. I think the guys out-performed the girls this week, but it was close.
My favorites: Melinda, LaKisha, & Gina, In danger of going home: Leslie, Alaina, and Haley.
And tomorrow we get the treat of having Kellie Pickler performing!! Ha!
