Overall the quality of singing this week was FAR better, on average, than the previous weeks. Six of the eight contestants were better than anyone in Week 1.
Good stage presence, nice voice, and she looks great. I don’t LIKE her voice though - it sounds juvenile, like she’s a really talented 12-year-old.
Good look, great voice. Poor song choice. He was good, but not quite good enough, IMHO.
Great voice, great song choice, great look. Despite Simon’s comments, 100 million North American men and millions more women would jump her bones in a New York minute. IMHO, the best of the night, which I find surprising - I hadn’t thought she was that good. Far better than I expected.
The “Hercules! Hercules!” guy. I expected him to blow the field away, and he didn’t, but he was still better than anyone else except Olivarez. AWESOME voice. Like a lot of them, he chose an awful song. He should sing Michael Jackson or Stevie Wonder.
Pretty weak by comparison to the others. Technically good but her voice isn’t that powerful. Her Mom has obviously been pushing her and living vicariously through her since she was about two years old.
Simon was right; he belongs in a boy band. Amazingly powerful voice but just a so-so presentation, and another poor song choice.
I got the sense the judges liked her the best going in and were disappointed in her. Her cold might have held her back a little. ANOTHER bad song choice; I’m starting to really wonder about that vocal coach. The judges may hand her a wild card just because she still has potential.
Worst. Singer. Ofthenight. Has a nice voice but he spent three quarters of the song doing vocal tricks. It was a bad presentation.
My choices: I would pick Vanessa Olivarez and Rickey Smith. They had the best voices, by far, and the most personality, and Olivarez has the best look. Honorable mention to Jordan Segundo.
Who I Think They’ll Pick: This group was the closest by far, so it’s hard to say, but the public has gone for talent over traditional “pop star” looks in three out of four picks so far, and the talentless Julie DeMato was kind of a special case. So I’ll predict the public will go with talent and pick Olivarez and Smith.
