It would be one thing if the judges, accurately critiqued all of them but they don't. They gushed over James singing journey and it was flat out horrible. You could see JLo's face while he was singing it and she wasn't enjoying it. And Lauren's 2nd song was totally wrong. To me it, it seemed completely obvious that Jimmy I picked that song for her. She didn't want to sing the word evil??.. yet she picked the song?! Somethings wrong in Dodge!

I really don't think that Adam and James are the same nor do I think he is trying to copy him. But that's just me. I enjoyed the song but it brought nothing new to the table. I like him. I like rock and metal and punk. I like soft rock. I like opera. I like music. Taste in music is like taste in art and such. Individual. No one is right or wrong. I DO not like the Disney-electronic altered/packaged music though ;-)
The montage of past seasons Top 3 contestants going back for their home visits really got me thinking about Elliott and his home visit to Richmond... best home town visit ever... just had to look it up on you tube... now I'm all teary eyed. I miss Elliott... and Lauren Alaina singing "Trouble"? Not even close, my dear.
Scotty knows who his audience is and sings to them, that's for sure... some may call it pandering and others may say he's playing a smart game... I didn't know the first song but I enjoyed it... the second, not so much... again with the strange faces and eyebrows.
Lauren really tried with the Martina McBride song but just fell short, imo.... as a totally biased Elliott Yamin fanATIC you don't even want to know what I think she did with the song "Trouble"
James- I like him when he sings softly b/c he really does have a nice voice in there but the Journey song was not good, imo, and I didn't even recognize Love Potion No. 9 the way he sang it.
Haley- I like her the best of the bunch but missed the into and had no idea whose song she was singing... it was a bit monotonous at the end... I don't really think she was screaming but she was pushing it a bit... will have to rewatch again... but the bus was heading straight for her. Poor kid. I don't mind critique but when others have stunk up the stage far worse and get nothing but puppies and rainbows, it does seem a bit unfair what they sling at Haley, time after time. I don't normally like when contestants give lip to the judges, but I could feel Haley's frustration. Her second song, "I Who Have Nothing", was a slam dunk... for me, for you, either Lauren or James can go home.
What a great final four! Haley's "I Who Have Nothing" was my favorite. I've never really enjoyed Lauren before, but loved her 2nd performance. I liked both of Scotty's songs. I enjoyed both of James' performances - he's a delight to watch, but when I close my eyes, I don't enjoy his singing as much as his performance.
I was listening to Lambert's CD today, he's wonderful so, imnsho is James! rock on James, Rock on!!
