I am not going to bash Carrie for being a robot. I don't see the same kind of emotion from her that I do from the other contestants, but what I do hear is a beautiful voice and she is trying to do what the judges and others have asked of her. Where some of the other contestants need help with their voices, she just needs a little help with her performance. With some coaching on how bring it out, I can definitely see her "connecting" much better.
I was not totally loving last night's performance, but was rather impressed with it after hearing she was sick and hearing her talk all stuffed up. I kind of digged the vibratto. How many people could sound even that good when they are sick? Her dance was total Pat Benatar!
