They each had to sing 2 this week: a song from the sixties and then a Neil Sedaka tune.
Ruben : Ain't Too Proud to Beg. Good and different. Can't say Barry White/Luthor Vandross. Good energy and nice smile as always. Breaking Up is Hard to Do. Used a bit more range than usual. I loved what Simon said about Ruben smiling versus serious - it reminds me of my 3 yr old nephew.
Trenyce Proud Mary. Great look for a 60's song. IMO, her best. 1st time she looked like she was enjoying herself. Love Will Keep Us Together. Still some pitch problems. Enjoyed herself again. Another good performance for her.
Joshua Kiss Me Each Morning. Back to country. A few bad notes. Good song for him - ok performance. Bad Blood. Sounded like he was out of breath. Really should be on Nashville Star. Better than the 1st performance. Too country.
Kimberly Heard it Through the Grape Vine. Good energy. Thought she yelled instead of sang parts of it.
Where the Boys Are. A couple of sharp notes. I think she's trying to 'belt' it out too much this week.
Clay Build Me Up Buttercup. Reminded me of Tom Jones tonight instead of Barry Manilow. Good energy. Not standard Broadway, but still 'Time Life Collection of Hits'
Solitaire. Very good. Still too many head movements for my taste, but glad he got rid of the facial exaggerations.
judge Neil Sedaka Another guy that's too nice to be a good judge. So far, Lionel Richie was the best guest judge.
Bottom 3: Joshua, Trenyce, Kimberly. Joshua will be eliminated. FYI - I chose Kim because I thought she had some pitch problems as compared to Clay and Ruben.
