What a difference a week makes...
As anyone who has been following these boards knows, I like the unique, the quirky, the oddball out, when it comes to Idol contestants. We are drowning in quirky this season!
I have sort of a tie for my top two tonight, and both are unique and quirky.
Crystal Bowersox - Pure Brilliance! To come back after reportedly having a diabetic attack, and get on stage with such presence and do what you did...Amazing. You are what this show is about. I was thinking to myself as you were finishing as to how i remember Kelly the first season, then Simon quotes me...
Lilly - Another piece of brilliance. So totally Lilly. Two weeks going and you interpret songs like nobody else. I loved it. I give Crystal the edge with her Americana vibe, but you are equally as brilliant.
Siobhan - The song has been done over and over, and you make it special again with (again) your quirky vibe. You are a dark horse.
Didi - I actually liked your interpretation, but it appears nobody else did. Your voice is so unique, I hope you bring more next week.
Paige - Like Didi, perhpas not the best song choice, but it definately showed off your voice. Not sure where you fit in genre wise.. .and i don't think you know either.
Lacey - I liked it. Again, your voice won me over, along wiht the fact that you were leaps and bounds better than last week's trainwreck.
Katie - You haven't wowed me yet, but I think you have it in you. Song choice. Song choice. Song choice.
Katelyn - Man, that was some sloooooooooooow Coldplay. To me, the song lost its edge due to how slow you sang it.
Bottom O' The Barrel
Michelle - That simply did NOT work. Creed??!! What???
Haeley - Wow, that was bad. Incredibly bad. Whatever happened to Haeley from auditions who wanted to be a black female country singer???
