Just a few who stood out.
Michael Lynche - I couldn't even remember who he was last week, but he totally blew me away with his performance this week. It was soulful and totally showed his personality. It was an awesome opening to the show, best, if not one of the best of the night, in my opinion.
Alex Lambert - Wow! That was a tremendous improvement from last week. I remember him looking awkward and terrified last week but this week, even though the nerves still showed, he was way better. You know, I really, really LOVE his voice! But much as it was a smooth performance, it wasn't really impressive, guess he has to work on that.
Tim Urban - I actually enjoyed his performance, and I was cheering when Simon disagreed with the other judges! Again, nothing too impressive about it but like Alex, he improved leaps and bounds from last week and that's important. And I thought that the song really suited him, laidback and easy.
Lee Dewyze - Definitely very competent vocally. I wasn't sure if it was a great song choice though, he sounded kinda like Hinder's lead singer to me. But I'm really liking this guy now, I think he's got an awesome character and an awesome voice. He just needs to loosen up on stage!
So based on the past two weeks' performances, I really think that these are the 6 guys who should make it through to the top 12 - Andrew, Aaron, Lee, Alex, Casey and Michael. But of course, Idol never ever goes as planned, there're bound to be "injustice" eliminations along the way. And of course, we've still got a third week!
Based on last night, I think that John and Jermaine might be the ones eliminated.
