I'm still blown away by Crystal Bowersox, "Natural Woman", performer. She sounded like Janis Joplin covering Aretha Franklin. If that a was a real cover, I'd buy it. I really hope she, Andrew Garcia, and silver-haired Lily, all make the top 24. I forgot to mention that really cute, blonde guy with the blond hair in a pony-tail, the one who took his shirt off in his original audition. I didn't know the song he sang, but I thought he did well too. And he's eye candy.

Bowersox is a cool name.

Lily's vocal reminded me too much of Megan Joy Corkrey from last year, who I thought I liked for a minute, but who then swiftly became bat-shit insane.

I had no idea that was a Taylor Swift song.

I think Lily seemed more natural than Megan Joy from last year - she came across to me like she was forcing herself to sound all quirky and shit.

To be honest, I don't remember if I thought that all along, or if I started out liking her and then got annoyed along with the rest of the country.

In terms of who we've been talking about mainly here, Andrew did amazing again. They didn't show Lily or Crystal singing individually during group sing, but they both made it. So did Haeley.

It's hard to gauge these things when you only see them sing one little line or two, but there seem to be a lot of talented and likable people this year, probably more so than there have been the last couple seasons.

But Mary, the girl with short hair who desperately wants to be Pink, is annoying and can leave the show whenever she wants.

GAF so far I agree, especially on the female side. These are the strongest group of women since Season 5 and they aren't all belters.

I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at the song choice options for group round. They finally have some current stuff to choose from. Bad Romance! Although, why would anyone choose to sing Sweet Escape? It's an ok song but not a good choice to learn on the fly.

Oh and the group that destroyed Dreams? Grrrrr....don't screw with Fleetwood Mac dammit. Mary is annoying.

I dont get why a lot of them do the same songs / artists. There's like 7 million songs out there and everyone decides to sing Lady GaGa? () Do they only have a specific amount of songs to choose from?

Sicy, I'm pretty sure they get a list of songs since they have accompaniment and pre-cleared to make sure they can show all the performances. In previous years it was like 5 songs, now they have more to choose from.

Mary is annoying. I figured she would manage to get thru. And Big Mike had a baby girl


So I was re-watching the last half of last night's show with Maddy tonight, and I'm still wondering why they sent cancer boy home. I don't think he was bad, at least not from the little they showed. Could it have been the song choice? Randy's comment was "interesting". And I got to see Crystal again.
