I thought that this was just an okay night for me... I wasn't too impressed with anyone. And seeing that this is the Top 7, I'm actually pretty disappointed. Hmm.
Scotty - I was bored by his performance. It was alright, but it felt lethargic to me. His mood didn't match up to the song, he could have owned the stage more. I thought that the judges would give him swell comments anyway, but yay for JLo and Randy saying what I thought!
James - I didn't believe it when the judges thought it was gonna be the best performance of the night. I thought it was a great performance, but it didn't have me jumping out of my seats. But after watching the rest of the performances that didn't impress me too much either, in my opinion, his was the best performance of the night.
Haley - I thought that the song suited her, but I'm not sure if it's enough for her this week. It's almost forgettable, IMO. I think she's gonna be in danger again this week...
Jacob - It was an emotional performance, but once again I wasn't impressed. Apparently DialIdol has put him one of the top for the voting, which surprised me. I thought that he could be going this week but seeing that he delivered such a heartfelt performance and looking at the votes... Maybe not. Unless it's another surprise elimination.
Casey - It was a good performance, but I'm not sure if it fitted him. He left me a little confused at the end. I was like, so what kinda musician is he really? Casey doesn't strike me as a rocker, but more of a bluesy, jazzy kinda guy. I felt that he could have leaned towards that, personally.
Stefano - I don't know if it was as great as the judges made it out to be, 'cos to be honest, I felt a little weird. His outfit was weird, he seemed a little awkward, and to me he didn't have the swagger that was needed to carry out the song. So even though he shook things up this week, I feel that he's the most likely candidate to go home, sadly.
Lauren - I would say that this was the second best performance of the night. It was a little safe for me, but it was very Lauren. And that last part where Ryan asked if she believed that she could win it, she reminded me of Lee DeWyze, how the judges kept asking him to be more confident and believe in himself. They're doing the same to Lauren this time! And I really, really hope that she goes all the way and wins it.
You know, I can actually picture a Lauren-James final two, with Lauren ultimately winning. It'd be a Carrie-Bo Bice all over again! How cool is that. We'll see if it comes to pass! Lol.
DialIdol has already given us the bottom three - Haley, Stefano, Casey. But I just might switch Casey with Jacob, I'm not too sure about that. But I feel that it's game over for Stefano... =/
