Marty is by far the best.

He is electric,
he nailed the INXS song.


JD keeps reverting to his last gig.
an Elvis impersonator. you can hear it when he says "thank you" and when he snarls his upper lip.


mig is second best



Ty this is not your gig.
Jordis, you are boring.
Susan, you should already be gone.

JD can be an ass but almost every performance of his is riveting. Need to see him peform an INXS song. Ultimately one of the guys will win, but not Ty.

Hard to say until I see JD and Mig play INXS songs, but Marty gave an outstanding rendition of Don't Change.

I agree, Marty ruled that INXS song - I`m so used to hearing him "scream" that it was a pleasant surprise to hear that he has a nice voice underneath.

I think it`s between Marty & Mig...

There`s no way JD will take it - riveting or not, he`s the most controversial by far and for every person that loves him, someone can`t stand him. INXS will def. take that into consideration.

Oh, so I'm the only one who doesn't like Marty? He's too intense and does rely too much on screaming. And I didn't like his version of "Don't Change."

JD is an ass, and I can't imagine the band would want to work with someone they don't like. But who knows, maybe they like him. He's a strong performer, and very consistent, but never bowls anyone over.

Jordis is very talented, but needs a lot more experience. I like Suzie quite a bit, and think Ty is the best singer on the show ... I'd put him in second place in the running, behind Mig.

Marty was excellent with Don't Change, however it's all about Mig IMO!

the band loved what he did with "Don't Change" if that matters

yes he screams, the vocal trainer could help with more range

isn't he the guy who went acoustic?

there are cover bands that do better Beatles and Zeppelin than the remaining members

all they need is someone than can hit 5 or 6 of the back catalogue and take this into the present and future

mig is good

marty is better

Navarro
said he would pay to see Marty
and would be in a band with him

There are FAR better singers out there than ANY of these people... It's a shame the INXS fans have to rely on a glorified hack reality/game show to pick a singer for such a great band.

i don't like him either, and i agree with you. as i was telling someone else, he's too intense, in a bad way. he tends to look possessed at times and makes these freakish movements.

my top three would be jordis, mig, and suzie. why jd has yet to have to go onstage and have to sing for his supper is beyond me. i wasn't a fan of deanna either but i think jd should've gone home before her. he's now definitely the worst of who's left. his voice is too grating and he doesn't have enough talent to back up his massive ego.

I'm with you on that whole last paragraph, Khanada. Although I still quite like Ty.

Disagree on both counts. Marty and JD are both great performers. JD seems as if he could be fronting The Killers. Now, maybe that explains why some do not like his voice, some definite Killers-haters around here.

JD's problem is he may be too much of an ass for INXS to pick him. However, it could be argued that he is the only one who realizes that this is a competition. The other contestants are all that is standing in his way. He doesn't want to have a sing-along with them, he wants to beat them. Just because he does not get along with his competition, does not mean he won't be able to get along with the band. It is kind of stupid the way everyone else gets upset when someone is kicked off. How else are you going to win?

Does everyone agree that Mig is great?

I agree about JD and his thoughts on it being a competition. It's kind of refreshing in the performance-based reality TV shows, actually.

However - if he ends up showing INXS that he's difficult to work with, or that people don't end up liking him, why would they want to work with him?

Granted, once he won he might be just fine and easy to work with. But you wouldn't go to a group job interview and act overly competitively and difficult to work with; no one would hire you.

see, that's the thing. i don't know if he could work in a group. when they had to split into teams and write a song, he decided he wasn't "feeling" the song his team was writing so he went off and did his own thing. oh, that'd go over REALLY well with inxs. "oh sorry, i'm not feeling this song. i'm going to write something else." it's a group, you're supposed to work together. at that time he wasn't supposed to be competing with the people in his team, but working with them, and he couldn't even do that!!

Exactly. That was the moment where I looked at the TV and said, "Dude. You're a dick."

When he was talking about all that, the other singers looked either really uncomfortable or pissed off.

yeah. i mean i don't expect or necessarily want everyone to be sitting by a campfire holding hands. it does bother me to an extent the way suzie just bawls every time anyone leaves. i mean, it's like you kinda wanna take her aside and say "suzie, you do realize this is a competition, right? every week someone is going to go home. i understand you may have made friends with some of these people and you may be sad that they're going, you need to realize first and foremost that it's not you going home."

there needs to be a balance between suzie's attitude and jd's attitude. not quite so "oh everyone let's be best friends forever" but quite not so "outta my way fuckers, i gotta win this thing!"

I agree on Garry. Because I'm such a squeeing fan girl, I looked up Garry's b-day on the INXS website. His b-day is June 22, 1957. He's the oldest member of INXS. Damn, he looks ten years younger than the rest of the guys.

Right now I'm jonesing for Mig, but Marty does something for me, too. I like Jordis, but she's more of a solo act. JD is a massive tool. Suzie is too cutesy, though her "Start Me Up" was awesome. And Ty is too much of a jazz hands theater type.

And I got a bit teary eyed when Deanna got cut.
