I had to leave the house during the show and haven't had time to watch the tape, yet.
I thought Ruben had a good performance. I think his song choice was a 'how can I not sing this song' pick. It did help energize the audience and you could tell he was having fun. He was moving a bit to it, too.
Corey. Yeah, Paula (abdul) - his upper register was good, but he couldn't handle the song at the lower end. Decent energy, but don't think he's the Idol.
Julia She still can't move. She adjusted the song to her range which did not do the song justice. At least she appeared to enjoy the song more this week. As Simon said, Ruben makes it look effortless while she makes it look like hard work. I would really like to see her eliminated tommorrow.
Carmen: I thought she would do better this week since she's a country kind of gal. Wasn't impressed, but she wasn't the worst this week IMO.
Blond Kim She does have presence. Voice doesn't particularly stand out. Didn't like the skirt. Did you notice her scratch her butt when the camera was behind her?
Clay I agree with Simon - sounded the same as last week - which isn't a bad thing since he did well last week, but not a compliment either. At one point, it really seemed as though he was singing 'somewhere out there' again. Definitely should not be eliminated.
Ricky Nice. I think he's done better - perhaps it's just not his element. Was it Glady's who said his voice was pure? It is, but he needs to show some variation at this point.
Gotta go to the tape for big Kim, Josh and Trenyce.
I was so glad that they didn't show those little personality clips this week. I'm also glad that AI Reveal show won't start til 8:30 which means that I can just watch the last 1/2 hour after Survivor is over.
