OK, literally no clue what some people are hearing here when it comes to Wade. His voice is transcendent - it has a massively unique quality and you'd know it on the radio after two notes. That's a fabulous intangible. And at least he can stay on pitch - more than I can say for many others, including Uche.
I like Uche - a lot. I love watching him. But that was a pitchy mess last night, and the tears didn't do it for me - I was a little put off that Lionel responded to it by handing him a spot in top 10. Did it make for good TV? Sure. And I would have put Uche there anyway, but I wouldn't have done it that way.
After weeks of annoyance, I finally figured out during the initial Sunday performance who Evelyn reminds me of - she is Jessica Pare. The 1970s garb showed me Megan Draper, and suddenly I understood why she made me twitch. Jessica Pare was a second-rate actress, Megan Draper was a second-rate Mrs. Draper, and Evelyn is a second-rate singer. Good riddance.
Nice job Bobby Bones on trying to get your country girl through but I'm glad the judges didn't take the bait. Riley's voice is too thin.
However, glad he put Dimitrius out there first. That guy is one of the best singers I've ever heard. Period. Who in the heck is voting for the likes of Walker and Laci over him?? I cannot fathom it. He's getting all my votes next week.
Madison's range is so incredible, and it's hard to pick up on because she makes it sound SO effortless. I sing You and I all the time - it's a HARD song. After midnight, I don't even bother because I can't hit all those crazy high notes. This bitch sang it an octave up!! INSANE!! I don't think I want to sing it ever again now. Her arrangement was fab.
Glad Alyssa made it. She needs to sing current pop that works for her age and emotional range - not that Waitress song which should never be sung by anyone under 25 years old. Also, that dress she wore the other night was a crime against humanity. She looked far more like a star tonight.
Bye Eddie. Ryan definitely deserved to be there over you. I am still mad about it and won't forgive the judges for that major misstep anytime soon.
If Laine keeps playing in this Elvis lane, I don't think anyone is going to beat him. The power of tweens cannot be denied.
My loves are Dimitrius, Alejandro, Wade, and Jeremiah. I would listen to anything they do. This was mostly the right top 10. Glad everyone woke up a little bit last night and cut the fat.
