So who does everyone think is going tonight? Dial Idol has Rachael at the bottom but I think she has fans who will keep her in.
I like the format of this better than AI but I find myself not caring who wins on either of them. I am saturated with singing competitions, I guess.
That said, Josh stands apart from the others for me.
I re-watched Rachel's performances and I don't think she will be in the bottom 2. Just don't like her lower register. Marcus is the one definitely going home. I think that Melanie and Josh are safe, so the fans will have to get their fave into the semi finals.
I also thought Chris was quite good. He must have a good fan base too.
Rachel, I love as always, however, it is now very clear just how much younger she is than the others. I fear she will be passed over for a more mature artist.
Josh, I didn't care for the songs, but loved him. I love him as a person and the voice. His second song was too much Joe Cocker. Didn't he do that song too?
Melanie talked too much and it turned me off. It seemed fake and I wonder if it will lose her votes. I'm not feeling that spirit that she seemed to take on in her little speech. Too fake.
I take back my prediction. I'm not so sure it will be between Josh and Melanie. It could go down any way at this point.
I feel the same Debb70 .I think Chris might be in the F2.
I think someone upthead commented on this, but I would like to hear what Clive Davis thought of the performers. I trust his opinion more than any of the judges. I'm sure he would be kind in his words, but I wonder who he was really impressed with, if anyone.
I am not sure if the judges still decide who leaves between the B2 this week, and then it's all up to the votes next week, or if we start with the lowest vote-getter leaving this week. I think the judges still decide. If that's the case, I think it will be between Marcus and Rachel, and even though he did very well last night, and IMO, better than Rachel, I think the judges would be hard-pressed to keep him if he's indeed in the B2/B3 for a 3rd week in a row.
Also, I'm pretty sure the finale has a final 3. They only cut one person this week and the next, and then it's finale time, which leaves us with 3. It's how the UK version does it - or at least how they did it this year.
The trouble with this show is too many dancers, and too much lighting. Josh's 2nd performance was just him and some background lighting - thats what i want to see.
