Top-04 Performance "The Music of Elvis
This week we have the fine music of
none other than the KING of Rock n’ Roll: Elvis Presley. We’re in for a
treat because the Idols will sing 2 songs each this week. Double the
pleasure, double the fun I say. (A quick word about Casey LeBlanc
leaving last week, we will all miss her but we know she will go on to do
other things. She is a great talent and in a few years to come will
maybe #1 on the charts.) Well the lucky Idols got to go visit Graceland
this week and see where The King lived and played. I think it would have
been nice to take all the Top-10 there because they all did such a great
job. Maybe next time. Nice mirror Zack!
01. Aaron Walpole
This is one of
Elvis’s great songs and I think everyone will know it. I first thought
what a great choice for Aaron but now that it is done I think not. It
was a little harsh on the low notes but as it went on it did get
somewhat better, Aaron has wowed us with so many good tunes that I am a
little disappointed this week. Overall it was just ok for me. I give him
7 out of 10 for this. I agree with Zack on this one. Maybe the next song
will be better for Aaron.
02. Suzi Rawn (1)
I believe Suzi should
rock with this song as it suits her voice. She looked great but I will
agree with Zack again that Suzi looks tired and doesn’t have that zap,
that energy that she usually has. In parts it was really weak and vocals
were slightly off but it was not bad. Maybe the trip to Graceland tired
our Idols out. 7 out of 10.
03. Melissa O'Neil
I guess that Melissa
isn’t reading my reviews because she has the same dresser that she has
had all season. Please Melissa dress your age and get a little funky and
up to date. You’re only young so get with it. Now, the performance was a
little low and slow to start with. Overall it was pretty good but to me
it’s really hard to sing Elvis and do it right. She always looks like
she is having a great time and I like that. 7 out of 10 for this one and
a 5 for the dress.
04. Rex Goudie (1)
I can totally see Rex
with this song and when I saw the songlist I knew it would be his. It's
an upbeat tune and kind of suits his personality. He tried to dance but
we know that Rex is a little stiff and doesn’t seem flexible, but he is
trying so points for that. The vocals weren’t his best but were a lot
better then anyone else so far. I give him 8 out of 10. Nice remark from
Farley about the “Elvis Pretzel”.
05. Aaron Walpole
I really am at a loss
for words with Aaron tonight. It was a bit of a sleeper song to me. It
was pitchy and out of tune quite a bit and just didn’t do anything for
me. I am sorry Aaron but tonight just wasn’t your night. 8 out of 10. He
looked great in that suit so points go to him for that and he does play
with the camera and I believe he is better than he was this week.
06. Suzi Rawn (2)
Well Suzi this week
was not a great one for any of the idols but this was a bad time for
you. The singing was really off in a lot of it. Your dress was just NOT
you at all and I think was terrible. I wish you had chosen a different
song but you didn’t so I think 7 out of 10 is all I can give for that. I
hope to see you next week but have my doubts.
07. Melissa O'Neil
Well Melissa somewhat
redeemed herself in this song. The vocals were great and I think she did
a good job. Dress has to go of course. The performance was one of the
best so far: 8 out of 10. See you next week, Melissa.
08. Rex Goudie (2)
Well of all the Idols
tonight it’s a tie between him and Melissa’s last song. It was a good
performance and I am sure Rex will be here next week. It's getting down
to the final 3 and I believe Rex is still my choice to win. He’s got it
all, so way to go Rex! Next week I hope all the Idols get back into
shape and kick some A$$.
