I just wanna say I am VERY happy to see some of the people who made it through but the "Top 21" is a crap idea, I call total BS on AI! Both Grace Leer and Lauren Mascitti gave outstanding efforts and should both move on. When you have people like Cyniah Elise and Faith Becnel or even, Louis Knight (who I do like) were by far not their best it makes me mad that America has to vote between Lauren and Grace. If you wanna make us vote, give us the whole field. And with Olivia doing Proud Mary she did sing it well enough but I think Tina had that choreography down before Olivia thought to do the song..
They didn’t say other than the next two weeks are getting to know the top 20. And before you correct me, my understanding is the two country girls at the end will be voted down to one. There seems to be some confusion about that but it seemed pretty clear to me. Speculation is that there will be remote performances for the first little while at least.
I am glad that they didn't just curl up and kill the season but are looking at creative ways to continue the season. I wonder if Ryan being on LIVE helped them see that it could be done. They worked through a lot of kinks to present LIVE over the weeks....and it is working.
I watched the whole part 2 last night on its repeat and thought the two young women both should have made it as they were better than some that did. I am guessing that they were looking for a variety of musical styles . I was sorry to see that Robert went with the overkill even though he was warned about it. As soon as I saw the new hair style and the shiny jacket, I knew he was off to the races. It is sad because when they showed clips of his audition, he had a sweetness about him that has been replaced with something less endearing.
I also thought that the young girl who did PROUD MARY merely did a copy of Tina. There was not one original thing about her act.
