American idol contestants took on Detroit’s Motown this week. Smoky Robinson was on hand to mentor. There are eight remaining contestants after last week we waved good-bye to Paul Jolley.
All the performances were good, but none stand out in my mind as great. The judges loved Amber, Candice and Kree. Lazaro redeemed himself with a decent performance. I think that Devin is always consistent, however the judges didn’t. I thought that Burnell should have had a stellar performance, but he didn’t. Janelle turned a Motown hit into a country ballad and held her own. In the preview, they built up Angela’s performance, but I didn’t think it lived up to the hype.
The contestants were separated into three groups to perform an extra number. Janelle and Kree performed together and the judges felt that Kree outshone her–big time! Then Amber, Candice and Angie sang together and did a great job–according to the judges. The guys sang together and Nicki told them they wouldn’t have made it past Hollywood week with their performance. I was like “what”? Anyway, at least once a season, I have to rant about how I think its ridiculous for the contestants to perform together since they are all so vastly different. There, I’m done for this season.
Can you tell I’m so-so about this week’s show? To be honest, I don’t even know if I’d still be watching if I didn’t blog it. If I had voted I would have given all my votes to Amber. I don’t think she belonged in the bottom three last week. Who do I think should be leaving tonight? I’d have to sadly say my Lazaro. I love him, but he’s in over his head.
Next week, I’ll be in California attending Reality Rally, so I won’t be back here until April 10th. Have a great holiday and spring break all! Bloggergal
