For their second song, we asked them to pick a song they wish they had written!

I'd do this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZshZp-cxKg (no rolls!)

I love that song. :fyi:

Maybe Philip can rework it, and really put is stamp on it!

I would have put him on the etta james song. That CCR song in particular has too much of a melodic line for someone like him to pull off, and you can't fiddle around with it. Although I'd have said you can't fiddle around with The Letter, either, and for some reason he got away with that. So who knows.

But if phillip does do the etta james, that certainly raises the question of what Joshua's going to do. That's the natural song for him from that list. I dunno. I could see joshua doing Josh Groban, definitely. But would either of those girls do the CCR? Probably not.

So you're probably right. Phillip's going to ruin a CCR song, and I'll be even more ticked at him than I was last week.

I've got no views about the other set of songs. You're probably right about Joshua doing James Brown, though.

I trust it'll be the girls doing the Bangles, huh? I don't know the Maroon 5 song.

BTW, how accurate have these set lists been? I guess I could page back through this thread and look, but I'm too lazy.

Ok, here goes...

ROUND ONE
Philip - Chump spot? Are they producers trying to get him out or is he so far ahead it doesn't matter? Sounds ok, but he needs backup vocals. The sax player smoked him - is that why she was closer to the front of the stage than him? This was a pretty good song for him, but blah.

Holly - I never like it when the contestants sing the Judge's songs. She should've raised the key up by a few steps - the whole song was too low. I thought she sacrificed the whole thing for those last couple of notes, which were good, but which she could've done a little higher too. I guess the judges and I don't agree.

Joshua - For the first time in a while, I didn't like it that much. First, I thought the tempo was too fast. Second, they shouldn't have perched him up there like that. What I like to about watching him is that he moves around so naturally, and he couldn't do that on top of the stairs.

Jessica - best of round one. guess that's why they put her 4th? Don't love that song on her - it is too mature, but still she did it really well. What I don't know is how she can growl like that and not hurt her voice.

Philip & Joshua - why oh why did they put these two together? Every time I hear Philip sing a note that isn't growly, I like it - maybe just because it's different. So I liked that about this song. Otherwise, I guess it was fine, but it didn't really do anything special for either of their voices

You know what I've missed? The "on the scene" recaps from EW. Are they there somewhere or have they ended?

They waited for Phillip - he didn't fall down, so they are telling America who to send home.

It's staged again

I'm inclined to agree. Although I think they're talking Philip up because they know that he's going to win, and they don't want to look like idiots.

2 hours is too long for 4 people. I'm tapping my feet waiting for it to be over. Next week is going to be awful.

I wouldn't buy her record!
