Blah Blah Blah.... just filling in space.
This is about the live show for Tuesday. But it was taped Sunday.
I was not at the taping but have read several accounts from people who did make the taping. And they are fans of various singers so you get a pretty open opinion.
First all the fans at the taping were shown the VH1 ep before the singers come into the room. So the fans are up to date on what happened. It was said that after the photographer told MiG and JD that they were being too sexy in their shoots. That they showed the part where Suzie asked if she was too sexy and the photographer said NO. The entire audience laughed. But Suzie and the rockers were not there yet to hear her being mocked.
Brooke is wearing a pink silky negligee thingy. I just heard she was worst dressed of the night. And the Rockers were all dressed in some sort of Levi outfit. The commercial goes on.
Since the singers were all doing 2 songs each they did not do the Q&A at the beginning this time.
JD opens the show and the audience was all loving him since they had just watched the VH1 show. He is wearing a black open shirt and just sitting there singing. He starts with his Nirvana song and it is very scaled back and everyone loved it. He also went straight from that right into his original song. The only singer that did this. And he was just lovin' his song and the crowd was going wild and even singing along with the chorus. He had posted the lyrics to this song on his blog after the song writing clinic and the fans knew the words. So it must have blown him away to have the fans sing along on a song he had never performed before. He was really into it and (this I will have to see) but they say he was even singing thru a megaphone at one point. But he brought the house down. He got two standing O's from INXS and Dave. And they were yelling "JD is back". All favourable remarks from INXS. He was told it was his best performance on the shot yet. Dave said he felt like he had just watched a stadium show. And JD was thanking Andrew for letting him use the INXS track for this song. Andrew was sitting there like the proud papa.
Suzie followed JD. She was fairly good. I heard she didn't really bring the sexy that her song needed. She got remarks for sounding great. She kept thanking Ty for helping her write the song. But the band didn't seem that excited about her original. I heard that it was okay but she had a tough act to follow because JD's ovation had gone on and on. The audience wasn't that into Suzie's performance.
Can't remember who went next, Jordis or MiG.
Jordis did slightly better than JD did on "We Are the Champions" but still was off at times. And her original wasn't that great - she had written it with Marty. She was asked by Dave or INXS some questions about if she was feeling down, ready to go home, etc. Sounded like how they questioned Tara back before they booted her. Everyone seems to think she has given up and will be the next one booted.
MiG did a usual MiG performance. The people at the show said most of them are just getting bored with MiG and the same moves, etc. He sang his original which INXS told him wasn't really an INXS type song. MiG had written it before he came in the mansion. Then they asked him some uncomfortable questions because MiG's song was about a bandmate dying and INXS didn't seem to like the way he expressed it.
Marty was last. Marty brings alot of fans to the show with him so he can do horrible and still have the crowd loud. He was said to be a bit pitchy during his first song. Then he explained a little about his original before he sang it. Now this is where some were upset. Marty's song is one that he has performed with his band The Lovehammers. So his fans were all familiar with the song and some of the people at the show thought it just wasn't fair that he was singing a song he has performed before and alot of his fans had heard him perform it before. So obviously he got a huge ovation from the audience. INXS and Dave loved his performance. Dave made a comment about the great bookends this week with JD opening the show and Marty closing it.
Everyone that was at the show seemed to think that Suzie, MiG and Jordis are the ones that deserve to be in the bottom 3 this week. But of course votes don't always go with the performance.
After the performance all the people in attendance get a ballot and can vote. But alot of people save them because they have the photos on them. So they don't vote at all.
And this was something I thought was kind of funny and sad. After the show some of INXS were seen leaving in a minivan.
If I remember more details I will add them.
