Wow! Super awesome night for the Idol contestants. Overall, I though they all had pretty strong showings.
My favorites on the night (this week, it's hard to narrow them down this week):
1. Pia: Again, she is unbelievable. I had goosebumps listening to her sing All In Love Is Fair. Two of the judges got on her a little bit for singing too many ballads. While I totally understand where they are coming from, the big three they always refer to--Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, and Whitney Houston--have attained musical brilliance singing mainly power ballads. Just a thought I had when I heard the critiques.
2. Scotty: Have I mentioned how much I LOVE his voice? It's SO country! Love it! Tonight, he really did a fantastic job turning a classic Motown song into his genre, country. Great job.
3. Lauren: I think this was her strongest showing to date. Last week, she was sick, and you could tell her voice just wouldn't let her hit those big notes. Tonight, she did it.
4. James: Rocked it again. I thought he was actually better this week than last. He did a great job.
So, fellow Idol watchers, what did you think? Favorites? Who do you think will be in the bottom three?
