Soooo Harry Connick Jr. is the mentor this week. Helping the contestants sing Sinatra. I kinda like Harry. For an old guy anyway.
Aaron is up first. He picked "Fly Me To The Moon." Gotta throw out - he looks a hundred times better than he normally does tonight. He sounded good too. I like the song, so that helps me like him a little more tonight. Randy said he did a really good job. Ellen said he had beautiful vocals. Kara thought it was good, but it wasn't as strong as last week. Simon was with Kara.
And now it's Casey's turn. And he's singing "Blue Skies." I love this song. LOVE it. And Casey sounds okay. It's not great, but I don't know that I expected it to be. It's totally NOT him. Randy said it was probably his worst performance. Ellen said it was stiff. Kara didn't love it. Simon said he wasn't fantastic and came over a little awkward.
Crystal picked "Summer Wind." Haha, I have to say it. Her hair is confusing me. It's pretty from the front. Looks clean and everything. Then you have those dreads in the back. *sigh* Oh well... she sounds good. It's finally something that doesn't sound like EVERYTHING else she's done. I can actually say I like it because of that. Randy said it was okay but a little sleepy. Ellen wanted her to loosen up a little. Kara "kind of liked it." Simon said it felt a little indulgent.
*side note* So now that Siobhan is gone, we're going to give Crystal time to justify her song choices?? This is why Idol goes over EVERY SINGLE WEEK.
Now it's Big Mike's turn. He picked my absolute favorite, "The Way You Look Tonight." I love it. He sounds great. Totally grabbed my attention. Randy gushed over him. Ellen loved him. Kara said he sounded great and still sounded like himself. Simon pretty much hinted that he blew everyone else out of the water.
And Lee gets to finish the night with "That's Life." Um, his voice is pretty much perfect for this music. Okay, he gets my votes again tonight. I'm seriously loving listening to him tonight. Randy loved it. Ellen said if this was the last night of performances he would have just won the whole thing. Kara told him he can win. Simon said it was by far the best performance of the night.
So obviously I'm going to put Aaron, Crystal and Casey in the bottom. Maybe with Casey going home. Or Aaron. I don't think Crystal will be out yet.
Alrighty, gotta go vote for Lee!
**Um, edit. HOW DOES LADY GAGA EVEN BELONG ON THE SAME STAGE AS HARRY CONNICK JR. AND WHY IS SHE GOING TO BE ON DURING SINATRA WEEK?!?!**
