Men do Stevie and Women do Whitney
1. Joshua Ledet
Interesting sound. More gravel and soul. The dancing looks awkward to me though. Nice scat.
2. Elise Testone
Glad she changed her song but sounds like it was too last minute. The performance is so so. Some of the lower notes are too breathy and she's trying too hard.
3. Erika Van Pelt
Hmm, a couple flat notes to me. Nice build up. Controlled, though might be overly so.
4. Colton Dixon
Nice and sensitive performance. Sounds more on tune when he's not going reedy. Great finish.
5. Shannon Mcgrane
Was sounding ok, but an important note was very icky. Pretty lightweight to me.
6. Deandre Brackensick
His sound isn't my favorite, but he was good. I liked his rhythm and tempo for the piece.
Good ramp up from a weak start. A strong finish. She impressed
He's a pretty funny guy. Surprisingly tender tone. Couple odd notes and too safe, but good.
I like her tone but she seemed tentative in the middle. Nice money note with a lovely turn to tender.
10. Jeremy Rosado
It was awkward to me. It didn't feel quite there.
This is a very risky song. Lovely control. A bit much on some vibrato tricks and too fast on them, but money notes are pretty darned good.
12. Philip Phillips
Great sound for this piece. Good interpretation and entertaining.
