    Skylar's choice turning "Fortunate Son" into a country ditty was quite lame. The meaning of the song was completely lost on her.

    So how does changing the music change the meaning exactly?

    Phil has got to go. He sounds the same on everything he sings. He had a really hard time hitting the high notes on his song choice last night.
    Joshua is really going down hill for me but they keep saying he is so great. half the time it sounds like he's eaither screaming into the might or screeching. I would never listen to a whole album of him singing.He also seemed homophobic in the way he pushed Philip away when he tried to put his arm around him.
    Hollie to me is the one who is showing the most improvement and I hope she makes it to the finials.
    Jessica is hard to watch at times. I think its because of her age.

    I think that her tone, phrasing and overall 'nice' country-fying of the song detracted from what the song really means. It's not a stupid Kelly Pickler song. The lyrics, intent and delivery mean something and the way she did it was more "flag waving" than the anti-war anthem it really is.

    I thought it was a weird choice for her, too.

    I wonder if she really understood the lyrics she was singing. I think not. It is not a "proud to be an American" song that Country music is known for. It is a very anti-establishment anthem.

    These standing O's for Joshua are getting out of hand. Also JLo calling Joshua the best singer in 50 years is just plain silly.

    I'm willing to bet that Joshua sounds a million times better live. He has that kind of voice and that would explain the judges gushing over him. It's also the case that Jimmy has commented on how he has differed from the judges on Joshua. Problem for
    Joshua is that the voters are watching on TV - and it really doesn't translate.

    Edit: watching results. Jimmy liked him this time. So who knows...

    I can't even find any current deals or codes for All Saints. That shop is nice but yeah, it's pretty pricey.

    FYI for those that don't like Phillip live, you should go to iTunes and listen to the samples of his songs. His recording voice is awesome. He sounded REALLY good on Time of the Season recording. I like it about 10000x more than his actual performance.
