Okay, so Bo is pretty much the American Idol this year, you all know that, right?
I was worried when he had to sing “Don’t Let The Sun” because that song is hard to ‘make your own’, but he did a great job with it. His Badlands song was brilliant – to sing acapella was a fabulous idea. And lastly, his Rolling Stones cover was perfect for him.
I loved Carrie’s version of “Crying” – I thought I heard some genuine emotion in there and it helped that the lights were kept off her face so her dead eyes weren’t visible. But I hated her Air Supply cover and even more hated her Shania Twain cover. But that’s that last one was the judges’ fault for picking it.
But, I think Carrie is safe because Vonzell just flat out sucked last night. Seriously. She massacred “On The Radio” which should NOT be that hard to sing. And Fantasia was much better with “Chain of Fools” because Vonzell doesn’t have soul – she’s too perky to have soul. As for that Dionne Warwick song, well, suffice to say that if Cheryl “Charlie’s Angel” Ladd can cover that song, anyone can. But Vonzell didn’t do as well as Cheryl Ladd (I should know – I have the 1978 album to prove it).
Bo and Carrie in the finals, handsdown. Bo is our winner. :up: No need for a finale, although I’m really looking forward to it.
