I do not understand how so many of you are ranking Lee high this week. Last week, he was awesome...this week, however, he was terrible. I don't think he sang one note in key...the beginning was so badly off, I actually thought he might pull a Brooke White, stop, and start over again.
Casey - hit it out of the park, his best performance so far
Crystal - Damn great arrangement and a perfect vocal, as always
Siobhan - Loved it. When she slows it down her voice is captivating
Katie - I was surprised how well she sang this - very good
Tim - yup, Tim
Andrew - I kinda liked it....gave it a swing/rockabilly feel that was cool
Michael - horrible arrangement, very weird vocal for this song
Aaron - the song just swallowed him up
Lee - Awful all around, not sure what happened
ppl just listen to watch simon says.
oh Megan Joy is original and awesome, she's awesome.
Lee has the best vocals for any male (said in like week 2, when there were 4 guys singing that night that have better vocals than Lee...Alex, Aaron, Mike, and Casey)
I think Lee's getting better, but if he was on during a season that held Cook or Daughtry, he'd be going home 10th like Didi did this season. If there was no crystal or Katie, Didi would be 4th like Brooke White
all this doesn't matter, Lee's not winning. It's Crystal or Siobhan, or maaaaybe Big Mike or Casey.
Mike is just plain awful. Worse than Tim. I have never experienced a bigger disconnect watching this show between what I think of a contestant and what others seem to think.
Me neither. I just don't understand it at all. He just screams cruise ship singer to me and it blows my mind that anyone sees him as an actual recording artist when everything is so corny and overdone.
far from horrendous singing, i thought it was great. To each his own though
but the thing about singing, it's not "to each his own"
I agree you can like one person's tone more than the next. You can hate Dave Matthews but love Geddy Lee for the tone they create. However, from a singing ability standpoint, Lee wasn't good last night.
He's not awful, he's just not good. His voice is all over the place. I really believe that if David Cook was on Idol 9, Simon would not be all up on Lee's nuts. He would be saying, watch DC, that's how you do it.
Kind of like, if Crystal had been season 8, Lilly would be around still, and probably make the top 5, and everyone would be saying, omg, so original and awesome, but since Crystal is here, she looks 2nd rate and goes home 13th
Mostly, I think people just hate when such a great song like Hey Jude gets "ruined" in a different style. I liked what he did with it, though.
i actually liked what he did with it, he just didn't sing it great. Lee does what he has been doing. Sing a song average, and move on to the next round. He is just not capable of having a huge moment.
he can't sing as well as Bo, and he's not as creative as Blake. I think Blake and Lee have similar vocal ability, ie, not great, but Blake was so inventive that you wanted to watch him every week. Are people really tuning in to see what Lee does each week?
I doubt it
Also, any one else feel that Andrew was going to break into Straight Up in the middle of I Want to Hold Your Hand? Seemed like the same tempo and groove
