Travis Tucker – “All Night Long”
Randy – “Big props for at least coming back to us… song wasn’t the most challenging, but you worked it out… 100 percent improvement.”
Paula – “Ditto. I’m proud of you.”
Simon – “This is why we put you through… you’re a born performer.” Simon actually apologizes to Travis for his comments last week, and tells him that he thought it was much better when he watched the replay.
Donna - Travis was on fire tonight. I love, love, love his dance moves, and that he didn’t lose his groove. Is this guy cute, or what? Look at you Travis, up there dancing like Usher. His vocals weren’t quite as amazing as his dancing, but who cares!
Nikko Smith – “Let’s Get it On”
Randy – “It doesn’t matter what song you sing, you gotta sing it. You worked it out baby.”
Paula – Can’t even speak.
Simon – “1000 percent improvement. My only downside is that you’re looking like Bobby Brown!”
Donna - Oh, yes, yes, yes. Vocally, he was a little disjointed, but he was so into this song and sang it so convincingly that any blips were easy to forgive.
Anthony Fedorov – “I Want to Know What Love Is”
Randy – “In the end, you brought it home.”
Paula – “Towards the end, you kicked into a different gear.”
Simon – “I think you did a fantastic job.”
Donna – This was a solid performance and certainly Idol worthy. After a bit of a tight start, he burst out with an amazing choral run. Anthony has a great tone to his voice and modulates beautifully. I liked it, and so did the girls!
Bo Bice – “Whipping Post”
Randy – “Love the outfit, love the song, I love you, I love you singing the Allman Brothers. Dude, that was the bomb.”
Paula – “Everything that comes out of your pores is authentic. You are the real deal, Bo. I am so proud to be a part of this show.”
Simon – “Every year at this stage of the competition, we had it last year with Fantasia and LaToya, somebody comes on the stage and does something so fantastic that it just blows you away. Tonight was the first time that’s happened (this season).”
Donna – When Bo started singing, I shouted out, “Yeah.” I whooped and wooo hooooed, and then I began to wonder if somehow, the channel had mysteriously changed by itself, and I was watching something other than American Idol. I still can’t believe what I just saw. This was one of the most amazing Idol performances I have ever seen. Bo Bice, you just bought yourself a ticket to the top 12. No doubt.
No matter who is voted off this week, it is going to be heartbreaking. These guys absorbed what they learned last week and brought it tonight, big time. Not only that, they picked some of my personal favorites to sing tonight. Wow! I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that, overall, this was the bestAmerican Idol performance show I have ever seen, especially at this stage of the game.
For me, the big winner tonight was Bo, followed by Scott and Anwar. Anthony and Mario tied for fourth, with Joseph in fifth place. Then it gets tricky. So, twist my arm, and force me to choose. I really don’t want to. But two guys have to go, and on the basis of tonight alone, I would say those two should be David and Constantine. Joseph, Nikko, and Travis were better overall.
The girls are going to have to really go the distance to top this show. Can they do it? We’ll see tomorrow.
