May 8 & 9
Who knows what will happen!
We're going to sum up the night's performances with one word:  YIKES!  Not very impressive.  Granted, the Bee Gees songs are in fact, difficult to perform.  Each contestant seemed to be clearly better with one song of the two they performed.  As Simon Cowell said many times during the night, "It's a good thing you've got another song to sing".  So while Lakisha Jones is "vulnerable" as Simon put it, we can only ask one question:  "What was Blake thinking???".  Clearly his beat boxing and falsetto strategy backfired since working so brilliantly during Bon Jovi week.  But the decision to make his second song one that nobody outside of the Gibb household has ever heard of, may just seal his fate.  Come on Blake!  Year after year after year we see various finalists, good or bad, say goodbye after performing little-known or rarely (if ever) heard songs.  Blake followed suit tonight, and while we like him immensely, we're expecting him to say "buh bye".

And what was with Jordin's second performance.  After Barry Gibb's interview proclaiming that Jordin will be a recording star for years to come, she proceeded to foul up her vocals, lose pitch and plain out fall apart.  Even Lakisha's second performance was solid until the final note when it sounded as if she had a frog in her throat. 

Not playing favorites here AT ALL, when all was said and done, it was Melinda Doolittle who may not have been overwhelming, but as always, was consistently and cumulatively better than the rest.  She wasn't off key.  Her vocals were - as Paula Abdul stated - "spot on".  So while Melinda may not necessarily have thrilled everyone tonight, she was consistent and better than everyone else.  It was a crazy week, so we're anxious to see how America voted.  Anything can happen, and in a world full of Sanjaya and William Hung fans, it usually does!
