This was an AMAZING night! WOW! The performances just blew me away. I thought that all of them were really, really good. Well maybe other than just a few, but almost everyone was GREAT. I seriously wonder how America will vote tonight, and I wonder who's going home out of that lot. Wow!
Casey - It was a great start to the show. He's just a really passionate, intense performer. Although I doubt I'll ever become a fan of his because of his genre of music (and sometimes he's just too aggressive), it's undeniable that this guy has mad talent.
Thia - It was nice seeing her step out of her comfort zone tonight, seeing her move and groove. But in light of the other fantastic performances, I'm not sure if this performance is enough to see her to the next round.
Jacob - The best performance of the night in my opinion. I liked it that he toned down and only let it out when he ought to.
Lauren - Yay that she's picked herself up after that so-so performance in the Top 13! I love her voice and her attitude!
Stefano - I loved the song, loved the performance, loved the vocal. But I do agree with the judges that there wasn't much connection. It was just an awesome vocal performance, but I didn't really GET it. I hope he survives, I really do, 'cos I'm just a HUGE fan of his.
Haley - Haley's back!!!!! The middle of the song just BLEW me away when she had those growls. And her voice... She can REALLY sing! Why didn't that come out earlier! I'm so glad she started to show the talent that she has. But as mentioned, in light of the other performances... Will this be enough, or too late for her? In my opinion, the middle part onwards was awesome but the whole performance wasn't like WOW.
Scotty - It was just an okay performance for me. Granted, he wasn't in his comfort zone. But he'll get through anyway.
Pia - One of my top performances of the night. She sang it with so much conviction! Not to mention those stellar vocals and the notes she hit... Wow! But yes, I can't wait for her to start moving around and really perform. Own the stage!
Paul - I personally think that it was the worst performance of the night. Not that it was bad, but it just didn't match up to the other great performances. And I couldn't help but compare it to Adam Lambert's so... You know. But once again, I doubt he's going anywhere tonight.
Naima - I was thinking that she'd probably deliver a lackluster performance as usual (oops) but she proved me wrong! She came out strong tonight, and the dancing was fabulous. It was a great performance overall and just based on that, I think she'll be safe tonight.
James - It was a great close to the show, but I thought that the beginning of the song was a bit stiff. It felt a little draggy for me. But the middle onwards was great. I think it's a tendency to compare him to Adam Lambert. However, I doubt we'll actually see a soft, tender side to him as we did with the latter hmm.
I really can't guess who'll be going home tonight. It could well be someone unexpected. But based on previous weeks and all, my guess for the bottom three would be Haley, Thia and Stefano/Paul. I'm going with Stefano 'cos it can be dangerous just delivering a good performance without much connection. Ah but I really hope not...
