And, finally, the judgesí choices!
Vonzell Solomon, "On the Radio"
Clive - "You were totally in your element, you gave a very strong performance, Simon picked a real good song for you and you delivered big time!"
Randy - "You are throwing all cares to the wind, youíre having a good time... that was great man, I enjoyed it!
Paula - "I second that Vonzell, way to go Vonzell, keep on having fun!"
Simon - "I echo every word of Clive Davis."
Sting7 - I love the key she started in for this song, and it just floated on from there. Nice number from Vonzell, at times she sounded eerily like Donna Summer! I have no complaints at all.
Bo Bice, "(I Canít Get No) Satisfaction"
Clive - "You really nailed it, you have the right spirit, the right attitude, you have taken three entirely different songs and made them your own. This has been your night."
Randy - "I feel like I been at the Bo concert tonight Ė the albumís already out, itís already triple platinum, Iím at the show! No matter what happens, you rocked the house tonight!"
Paula - "One more week, everybody gets one more week to watch this for free, and then youíre gonna have to pay!"
Simon - "Youíve had a very strong night tonight. For me, Iíve heard all this before at weddings. Loved the first two songs, this was just a bunch of light fluff."
Sting7 - Iím having a hard time tonight, because Bo so clearly reduced Carrie and Vonzell to also-rans! This was unquestionably the Bo Show tonight! I donít remember any contestant since Kelly Clarkson who wrested the show from anyone else on it and dominated it. Just with my half brain, I can tell you every song Bo sang tonight. I have to think a little to remember Carrie and Vonzell. That says something! What a night. I think Bo may have had the greatest night of any Idol contestant Iíve ever seen. Is it too soon to crown a winner? I donít think so. Carrie Underwood, "Man, I Feel Like A Woman"
Clive - "Country pop is your element, it just radiates from you, not only in your voice, but in your face, in your body. You really nailed it, congratulations."
Randy - "Iím just happy to see you have some fun up there... you did your thing! Carrie!"
Paula - "I love when you have fun, I love when youíre smiling, itís going to be tough between the girls! Bo did great tonight." (Paula just plunked Carrie right in the hot seat! Sheís probably right!)
Simon - "First part of the song didnít sound anything like you. The second part, the song worked. I think that was enough to get you into the final."
Sting7 - Iím not so sure, Simon. This was a song right up Carrieís alley, but the low parts in the beginning were scary-bad! She brought it home, but if I had to compare Carrieís excellent start to her stumbling finishes, to Vonzellís stumbling start to her excellent finishes, I would have to give the edge to Vonzell! Itís that last song we all remember, history shows. Iím getting ahead of myself.
Letís get the business out of the way. Bo is back next week and fighting for the title. Who is joining him? My gut is telling me that Vonzell may just narrowly edge Carrie out of that final spot. And what a final it will be! Bo may not want to take that victory lap just yet. Vonzell pushes herself vocally every week. Weíve seen Bo coast from time to time, and it always shows. If Bo is willing to step up his game one more time, he may just walk out of this your new American Idol.
As for Carrie, she is beautiful, she is talented. Her future is secure no matter what. But, I think her Idol campaign is going to come to a close-voted end.
Am I right? Letís see!
