I agree about the Norah Jones comparison. I see Theresa having this totally cool Norah Jones meets Joni Mitchell vibe.
Theresa looked good with the contacts, but Iíd like to see her go back to the thick frames next week. One thing that sickens me about AI is the progressive image makeovers that make the singers look less and less like themselves each week. It seems to me the essence of CI is to embrace an artist for who they are, not the slicked-up Hollywood version of who A&R execs want them to be.
I didnít think her performance was that bad. She got across that whimsical charm that I like about her. The problem was the song was just too simple to sing in a competition like this. There were about 3 notes in the entire minute and a half, not exactly the type of stuff to show off your vocal chops. But I appreciate that she picked a song Iíve never heard before, something Iím finding increasingly rare on idol shows (and I donít know that many songs).
