I remember thinking George Huff's song for Barry Manilow Night (title escapes me) was like watching a train wreck
And Charles Grigs' "You Can't Win" was abominable-- as was Lisa Wilson's "Come to My Window"
I'm with you, Jacee. I loved all of those performances. Heck, "Tiny Dancer" really made me sit up and notice JPL.

Wow -- just reading these posts made me relive some really bad moments in AI history ! My thoughts:
Josh Gracin: Celebration, That's when I'll stop loving you
Carmen: And So it goes
Corey Clark: Against All Odds
Juanita Barber: What about the Children?
the Roman brothers: their top 32 performances (honestly, I didn't even recognize the songs they sang until I saw them listed elsewhere)
John Stevens: Crocodile Rock (still can't figure out why he picked this...)
Leah LaBelle: Keep me Hangin' on
Matt Rogers: Amazed
(no order, all bad and not even amusing)
-Croc Rock and My Girl (John Stevens)
-It's Raining Men (Jasmine)
-Carmen (in general, sorry pumpkin)
-Josh Gracin (Celebration, for starters...and nearly everything after that...but not entirely everything)
-Kim Locke (Heat Wave...took her weeks and weeks to come out from under that wet blanket of a song)
- Clay Aiken (Grease. This coming from a Clay fanatic, mind you. I was so blinded with love that I never could accept that this performance... was scary)
-Corey Clark (Against All Odds. "Refreshing upper register"...WTF?)
I don't know...that "muppety" voice was one of many voices JPL channels in his songs. I don't think it is an imitation.

I don't think he was imitating Elton John, but I do think it may have come off that way...just because JP has the oddest voice of all the contestents (even over Fantasia).
Lisa Wilson-'Come to my window'
Whatever the two Noel brothers sang.
Don't Leave Me This Way!
New Attitude-Tamyra Gray
I Won't Dance- R.J. Helton
Celebration- Josh Gracin
Ryan Starr's "You Really Got Me" was a train wreck. It was on 60's night, and I could tell everyone was just blown away (in a bad way). Jim's "Easy" was so bad that even he knew he didn't belong there, and Carmen's "And So It Goes" was a cringe fest. Ouch, and John Stevens's "My Girl".
Oh yeah...Ryan Starr...the massacre of the Kinks' song. Hated Ryan Starr. Terrible performance. And what arrogance for that performance! She thought she was good!
Anything from Camile or JPL.
