Mike Lynche- "When A Man Loves A Woman" by Michael Bolton
Commercial Break Photo Caption Challenge: What is Going On Here?
She's Just Being Miley: Miley
says she's falling in love with Big Mike and that his voice is
ballad will not keep Big Mike away from the stage antics. Nope, he's
still "leading the band" like an air traffic controller, pointing at
the camera and making love to the audience. Sure, it's cheesy as all
get out, but Big Mike backs up that cheddar with vocals that get better
every week (even if they still tend towards nasal) and charisma the camera
captures. However, it's time for Big Mike to do something
contemporary that doesn't sound like it would be performed during a
slow dance on a cruise ship.
Simon Says: Kara says it was kind of loungey and over-indulgent. Simon says "it's like you wanted one scoop of ice cream and you got eleven." So we're in agreement judges? Big Mike is still over-the-top.
Safe, Shaky, Should Be Going Home: Safe
we're half way through with the Top 11 and I am somewhat shocked to
say, that Miley Cyrus has been by no means the worst part of the show.
Nope, the Top 11 (cough cough Paige Miles) has taken care of that all
Andrew Garcia - "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" by Marvin Gaye
She's Just Being Miley: Andrew
gets star struck and forgets the words to one of the world's catchiest
(most annoyingly so) songs. Miley makes Andrew drop the guitar and says
she "thinks the ladies will dig it." Miley, Miley, Miley. You are
young, but let me tell you this, the ladies always dig the guitar. Always.
does not have the vocal range to pull of Motown and he sounds like he
is smooth talking through the beginning of the song rather than
singing. Then, to make matters way worse, he does a combo moonwalk and chicken dance. This seems like the kind of
performance that a drunk best man does at the end of a wedding when
he's had an affair with the new bride. It's unhinged, uncomfortable,
and would be so much better if I could blame it on booze.
Simon Says: All
the judges say it was a terrible song choice and we agree. Simon says
maybe that they over rated Andrew at the beginning, "It was a cute
rendition of a Paula song. Full Stop." He then says that Andrew sucked
the soul of that song "and then tortured and ruined it." Tell us what you really think Simon.
Safe, Shaky, Should Be Going Home: Shaky (if it weren't for Paige and YouTube, he would be heading home.)
Katie Stevens - "Big Girls Don't Cry" by Fergie
She's Just Being Miley:
The two 17-year-olds have a heart-to-heart about being 17 year olds in
the music industry. Miley tells Katie to "edge it up a bit," which is
like recommending the tooth fairy gets a tattoo. Maybe it'll work
though...Katie does take the stage in skinny jeans instead of a prom dress.
Big girls might not cry, but I will. Want to know
what makes a Fergie song even worse than it was to begin with? A
17-year-old pitchy pageant queen singing it. It's nowhere near as bad
as much of what we've seen tonight, but its still boring, off key,
super sharp and corny. Can we just fast forward to the Siobhan versus
Crystal finale? Because none of these other kids are going to win it.
Simon Says: Kara
says "you still have mad pitch issues, but this is where you belong."
And by that, I assume she means on a cruise ship or casino somewhere.
Safe, Shaky, Should Be Going Home: Shaky
