    I enjoyed so much more the performance of that song on a Glee Season 2 episode called "Duets", when the Mercedes and Santana characters sang it. YouTube - GLEE 2x04 - River deep / Mountain high (Ike & Tina Turner) (Ignore Italian subtitles Ha Ha)

    Now that had soul!
    Excellent post, I totally agree!

    There is no denying the girl has talent, she's a great singer, but I haven't really enjoyed any of her performances. I think it's her stiffness mixed with her lack of connection to the song and the audience. (for me, anyway)

    And my boyfriend and I were talking about Santana and Mercedes' performance of the song last night, too. lol That is one of my favorite season 2 performances and she didn't hold a candle to either girl imo.

    I'd like to see her land in the bottom 2 so she can get a much-needed wake-up call. Every week she's been saying that if she sticks around she'll "change it up" or whatever and every week it's still the same old thing! She needs to get outside her comfort zone if she wants to deliver that "WOW!" performance.

    I haven't liked Pia's performing style much--too robotic. But I think she did inject tons more personality into her singing last night. Some of us have been so bored with her for so long, it's hard to give her any credit for improvement.

    There has been so much hype about Pia, but honestly this was the first time I could remember what she sang. I thought she was fantastic! I could see what the hullaballoo was finally about. She's beautiful, and she came through.
    My daughter did not like the outfit, but even that wasn't bad.
    I thought the overall image was WOW!

    I also think she has a very sweet, approachable, attitude about her. That tells me that with the right breaks and coaching, she might well get some where whatever the field.

    No, its not that. I will concede she has talent, and I wanted to be impressed with an uptempo number. I just was still bored with her, and didn't really see all that much more personality than when she stands in one spot.

    Me either. I honestly think she doesn't understand what it means to losen up. It's like she's a robot.

    I felt like she had directions, walk 6 ft., pause, turn, walk 5 feet, pause, tilt head this way, look downward, etc..... I just can't take it anymore. It's too formal.

    I would like to see her slur the words a little, get into some relaxed current clothes, move with the music, and really let her hair down. IMO she seems to be competing as you would in a beauty contest. Somehow they turned Carrie Underwood around. Maybe they can help her too, but if those coaches keep rewarding her conduct, I don't think she will do it on her own.

    But she has been given criticism/advise about her stage performance, the last 2 weeks by both Jennifer and Randy, hasn't she?

    Despite all the negative criticism about Pia she hasn't been in the bottom three yet. I think she has a good chance of making it to the finals.

    I don't know. On the prediction thread I listed her in the bottom 3 tonight! Maybe I'm crazy, but you never know.

    Steffano is popular as the one to go, but he now seems to have a good base of support. That leaves the others. Hmmmmmm. We'll see.

    I don't want Pia to go. I would like to see her grow as a performer. That's what the show is supposed to be about, right. But if she could get in the bottom 3 maybe she would take the advice more seriously. It seems to me that she is comfortable and is just coasting to the finals because she has the dynamic voice.

    I favored Pia the most. I thought she would def be in the top 2. Her voice is amazing. I looked forward to hearing her sing every week. I'm bummed that she was voted off.

    She didn't even get the chance for a do-over. It was straight to the bottom three for the first time and that was all she wrote.

    I know she lacked stage presence and was boring at times, but she could sing. I never remember her ever having an off night. In terms of singing. She had some of the best vocals, but it wasn't meant to be.
