OK, I was expecting another bad week (although it would be hard to top "Latin Night" for worst AI themes ever) but I was very pleasantly surprised. I thought everyone had great night.
Best in my opinion was Latoya. Worst was easily Jasmine. I was a little shocked that the judges were hard on George - I thought his performances were great! After he sang "What a Wonderful World" I thought that he could release that song as a single right now and sell a million copies.
So what do you think about what the judges said about Latoya and Fantasia being in their own league? In one way I agree and in another I don't. Those two by far have the strongest voices and the most control over how they sound. On the other hand, just because their voices are strong doesn't mean you want to listen to them - of course if you have read any of my posts recently you know that I am talking about Fantasia here. I thought the first song she did last night showcased exactly what I don't like about here. The second song was better, but still nothing I would choose to listen to.
Although I don't think she is quite as strong as the others, I am usually pretty impressed with Diana. It is hard to believe that she is only 16 - she is just so comfortable up there.
Here are my pics this week:
Best - Latoya, then
and finally Jasmine. I think she will be packing her bags tonight.
OK, now what do you think?
