Top 7 - Prayers Finally Answered

Posted: Wednesday, April 21, 2010 by MiKey in Labels: ,

This week marks the half way point towards crowning this years Idol winner. Alicia Keys mentors the finalists this week as they all take on inspirational songs. First of the night was Casey James with Fleetwood Mac's Don't Stop. Overall I felt like this song had no melody. My initial reaction was that he was trying to imitate a Lee DeWyze performance. We obviously know that Casey is a great guitarist however, this is not guitar Idol it's American Idol therefore, he needs to step up his vocal. After Casey was Lee with his version of The Boxer. Throughout his performance you were able to tell that the song meant something to him. Ithink conveying that type of emotion is an incredible task which he was able to perform. Congrats Lee. Tim Urban took the stage with an odd choice of Goo Goo Dolls, Better Days. After this decent performance I was much confused like the judges as to what type of artist Tim was. I wouldn't be surprise if he is in the bottom three. Aaron Kelly tackled a big song; R. Kelly I Believe I Can Fly. This song was way to big for him. Felt very karaoke and I felt like I was watching a really good high school talent show contestant. First lady of the night Siobhan Magnus. First off WTF is she wearing-Did you get dressed in the dark again? The whole song was out of tune I felt you sang it all just above the actual notes. You also changed the duet When You Believe too much that there were sections where it was entirely unrecognizable. Will you ever sing in tune??? Note I said sing not yell cause apparently that's all you do. Yelling somewhat in tune must be your forte. Next was the incredible Michael Lynche with Hero. Horrible song choice for this evening. Yet, Big Mike's vocal was absolutely incredible. And last by least the most incredible performance of the night. Crystal Bowersox chose Everybody Get Ready. Which was so emotional she was moved almost to tears. Compared to everyone else Crystal makes her performances seem effortless. She is definitely a true artist and is going places. So I almost fell out of my chair when they announced the results. Tim is finally gone. My Idol dreams have come true -LOL
