As you may know by now Colton Dixion was sent home from American Idol, his rendition of “Bad Romance” by Lady Gaga and “September” by Earth Wind and Fire did not sizzle with his fans, at least he was in the top ten, and that’s okay with him. He may not be a winner, but he made it this far in the competition. So far, he may get a record deal and performance in the future.
Kept behind was Elise Testone, the rockin’ 28-year-old teacherCharleston,S.C., who fizzled with Alicia Keys “No One” Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get it On.” Hollie Cavanagh from McKinney, Texas, who redeemed herself with Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” and Dusty Springfield’s “Son of a Preacher Man.”
This time Jessica Sanchez was saved by her fans, and Jimmy was right the whole time, if she sticks to songs that age appropriate to her, she could win the competition. She kept singing the songs that were older than, and her fans were confused of why she was singing an oldie rather than a new song that is playing on the radio. No matter what theme it is, the song should be appropriate and the song should be recognizable within five to ten years, not 30 years ago. I hope Jimmy steers her in the right direction, and Jimmy should select the songs for her, not Jessica, if she wants to win.
Ryan Seacrest did his impression of Dick Clark, who passed away this week, signing out at the end show. Could Ryan Seacrest be the next Dick Clark?
