    I guess I don't hate Cats in the Cradle as much as the rest of you because I grew up in the same town as Harry Chapin and he was an absolutely incredible human being and activist ... fighting to make sure children didn't go hungry. The very last time I saw him, was at a Bruce Springsteen concert. We were both leaning up against the stage (back in the days they allowed you to do that) and he had his little boy on his shoulders and told me he wanted his son to know what rock 'n roll was all about .... RIP Harry ... and I'm glad Dilana did you justice!
    Harry Chapin is probably my all time favorite singer / songwriter. I'm withholding judgment on whether or not Dilana does Cat's in the Cradle justice, because I just don't like her voice.
    He was showing them contingencies when they showed him to the street - Harry Chapin

    Thanks for the recaps everybody, we are still 2 days away from getting the show.

    Why do they pick on selection when there is hardly any choice? Does anyone know why we havent seen any MC, Gnf'nR, or Metallica songs?????

    I dout Axl Rose would give permission to use vintage Guns 'n Roses... Not sure how it works and who owns the rights to the songs, but Jason and Gilby aren't the primary songwriters in their respective bands. Not sure if Tommy co-wrote/wrote any of the MC songs...

    Yeah, that's a good point. We always try to vote for the person we think did the best job, but I know my gut reaction when I read this was "hmm, if Storm did 'ok' we better vote for her" - falling into the trap of fandom.

    Thanks for the realitic check - we'll vote for the person most deserving!

    And thanks again LAGuy - your precaps are excellent. And Blues Songstres, your back up comments are helpful too.

    In fairness, when Jordis got the boot there weren't any really weak people left. I think these judges are dumb sometimes, but I can't see them booting Storm over Patrice or Zayra or Ryan. Ryan has come on strong so he may out last Storm, but Storm has been pretty consistant thru out, so unless there are personal issues, I can't see them booting Storm.

    LOL, that could spell her doom tho.

    With Jordis, I think that she was ready to go. She just lost her fight to win the competition, even though the guys seemed to really like her.

    I don't really think Storm is in any danger of going anywhere yet, especially with Patrice and Zayra still in the picture. Everyone's entitled to an "off" week - and most everybody has had them. Lukas with "Celebrity Skin", Ryan with everything before "Losing My Religion", Magni's first performance which was so unmemorable I can't tell you what it was, Patrice with just about everything and Zayra (do I have to name one?). Dilana is the only one in my eyes who hasn't had an "off" performance.

    If you don't like her voice to that extent, then I doubt there's anything she can sing that's going to significantly change your mind. She's just not your taste, I get that.

    Its kind of the same way I think that Patrice's singing is flat out boring no matter what she does. Patrice has the basic skills, but whatever it is which makes me enjoy someone's voice just isn't present in her.
