Lee Dewyze – ‘Kiss From A Rose’ by Seal, from Batman Forever
That was honestly quite boring. Other than the raspy voice which I fancied at the start, his performance started to lose my attention, mostly because so many people have done this number before and he was not very original with the arrangement. That was an absolute waste of opportunity for a week where people could choose songs from the movies.
Michael Lynche – ‘Will You Be There’ by Michael Jackson, from Free Willy
This was a very boring gospel-like rendition of MJ’s song. His proclaimed goal of making it to the Top Three totally ruined his chances of even making it into the Top Three.
Casey James – ‘Mrs. Robinson’ by Simon and Garfunkel, from The Graduate
Well, at least he tried to switch the arrangement up a bit. He probably chose this song for Kara LOL. The performance didn’t really maximize his talent very effectively.
Crystal Bowersox – ‘I’m Alright’ by Kenny Loggins, from Caddyshack
She certainly crystallized it into a song of her own. A true artist. I like her boyfriend’s pants.
Crystal Bowersox and Lee Dewyze –‘Falling Slowly’ by Glen Hasnard and Markéta Irglová, from Once
This was easily the best performance of the entire season. They were like true blue veterans.
Casey James and Michael Lynche – ‘Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman?’ by Bryan Adams, from Don Juan DeMarco
I liked the blend of their sultry voices. Interestingly, the duets were way more outstanding than the solo performances! Ellen’s comment was just the epic bomb.
Bottom 2: Crystal Bowersox (lol?) and Michael Lynche
Eliminated: Michael Lynche
