Seven last night half dozen tonight!
Casey Abrams sang “Harder to Breathe” by Maroon 5 and at the end he stole a kiss from Jennifer Lopez. Doing something Tyler says he as been trying to do for the last 4 months.
James Durbin sang “Uprising” by Muse. If you are like me you never heard of this song, but I googled it and the lead singer of Muse, Matthew Bellamy, is having a baby with Kate Hudson. Aside for that, this was an excellent performance by James. I still predict him as the winner. Steven Tyler appearing a little disheveled made some accolades that had to be censored. After the commercial break they had taped his mouth shut.
Lauren Alaina sang “Born to Fly” by Sarah Evans. She has been one of my favorites. I don’t think she can beat James, but for the sweet and innocent 16-year-old this was an excellent performance.
As for the rest, Scott went down “Swingin” and mugging. Stefano had an inproved stage perfomance with “Closer”, but the backstory of him being a “ladies man” kills it for me. Jacob Lusk attempted “Dance with my Father” by Luther Vandross prompting the nickname “Luther Lusk”. Here again the backstory may have killed him being refered to as Diva-ish. Haley Reinhart may have found her stride with, “Rolling In The Deep”, but it is probably too late for her to garner any new fans.
That’s it! Who do I think will go home? The bottom will be Haley, Jacob, and Stefano. I hope that Stefano goes but it maybe Jacob.
