Well irregardless, like Hollie last season, she sure is getting the shaft as of late. I am not usually on the country bandwagon, but I do like this young lady very much. She brings strong musical skills to this competition and really challenges herself week after week.
So, what is up with the judges? They were very lukewarm in their reviews of her performance last week and over praising a couple of other singers that clearly don’t deserve it.
Such a strange show this season. I can barely keep my eyes open watching it.
This week, the Top 6 will be performing numbers from the Burt Bacharach/Hal David catalogue of music.
They will also select a second number from some list that will magically contain songs that they wish they wrote. I am assuming that they had very little say in this list and would be surprised if any of them like any song on this list.
Idol has all their money tied up in he judges’ salaries so I can’t see them springing some more dollars to obtain copyright for songs never performed on American Idol. It will be a very pleasant surprise if I am proven wrong.
At any rate, tune in to Fox at 8:00 P.M. eastern on Wednesday night to catch the two-hour performance show. I will be writing my Vocal Masterclass article and hope to have it online 24 hours later.
