Ummm.

Did Lee actually just sing that? And it's his single? What is this fuckery?

 
God, that really wasn't very good. He took an already sort of Dad rock song (albeit a fucking awesome one, and one of my favorite songs of all-time) and made it even more light and...just...boring. I don't know. Not that the song is boring in the first place, just, I don't know.

He flubbed the words around, too, and didn't hit the climax of the song well at all.

He should have gone for the "Re-he-he-heeech me" note!

Anyway. Somewhere in Munich, Bono is drugged up and drinking a Guinness in a hospital bed saying "What was that weak shit?"

I cannot believe they picked that song for Lee to release. Oh and no way should he have attempted that Reach me note, don't you remember Apologize?

That was Tim Urban that sang Apologize.

I was going to vote for Crystal anyway, but now I've got extra motivation.

I don't know, he was really missing the edge (no pun intended) in his voice tonight. He sounded smoother, more polished, and it didn't really work for him. I think he could have done better with that song. I also hated their arrangement, but virtually all of the songs tonight were overproduced IMO.

Holy crap, you're right. This is how much attention I've paid this year.

wtf?? Karaoke Idol? Talk about murdering a song. I guess he'd have to pay royalties if it gets released.

Crystal kicked his ass anyway.

Yeah, Crystal straight up brought it more tonight, and was the better of the two. She deserves to win, in my opinion.

I almost feel like it was setup for Crystal to outshine Lee tonight.

I think the most annoying part for me is all the teenyboppers who will now think that Lee wrote that song, and when they hear the original on the radio, they'll think, "Oh, that's a cover of Lee's song". I got enough of that from casual concert goers last tour.

I agree that the Producer's pick was better for Crystal than for Lee, however, apparently Lee picked his single. Which means at least he has good taste.

I thought their single was supposed to be an original.
