It’s Diana Ross Week this week. Hmm…

Blake Lewis - You Keep Me Hanging On

 BLAKE LEWIS -YOU KEEP ME HANGING ON 

Am not sure if it’s just me or what, but Blake sounded like Boy George on this one. I don’t agree with the judges’ comments on the arrangements though. The modern sound was cool.

 

Jordin sparks

JORDIN SPARKS – IF WE HOLD ON TOGETHER

 Ok version. Don’t like the note segways. But she has a good vocal range. 

Listen to the mp3. 

sanjaya

    SANJAYA MALAKAR – AIN’T NO MOUNTAIN HIGH ENOUGH

This is not Sanjaya’s best performance.  He lacks power here, as all his other performances. He must still be taking the wrath for not being voted off in lieu of AJ and Sundance.

Listen to the mp3. 

CHRIS R.

 CHRIS ROBERTSON – THE BOSS

He did well with his version, but not too great.  His curse is he is another Justin-wannabe that his every performance gets compared to how Justin would have sounded had he sang it.

Listen to the mp3.

LAKISHA JONES – GOD BLESS THE CHILD

I don’t know that this song is a Diana Ross song. I don’t even know this song! Bwaha.

But good vocals here. Lakisha’s not my favorite though.

Listen to the mp3.

STEPHANIE EDWARDS – LOVE HANGOVER

Whoa. I love this!

Listen to the mp3. 

phil-stacey-01-2007-03-131.jpg

PHIL STACEY – I’M GONNA MAKE YOU LOVE ME

 Not as strong as Stephanie’s performance but it’s good.  Smooth and he’s feeling it to the bones. Whatever that meant, hehe.

Listen to the mp3.

HALEY SCARNATO – MISSING YOU

Sexy. Like it! Dunno why people think she’s a weak contender.

Listen to the mp3.  

 gina-glocksen-01-2007-03-13.jpg

 GINA GLOCKSEN – LOVE CHILD

No power. So-so. She isn’t too charismatic on stage. She even struggled on the almost end part.

Listen to the mp3.  

chris-sligh-01-2007-03-131.jpg

CHRIS SLIGH – ENDLESS LOVE

Guy Sebastian hair-alike, you rock. Lovet! Very different and simple.  I think this is the best this week.

Did the intro feature a sample of that Coldplay song, uhm, I forgot the title. Or is it Coldplay? Argh.

Listen to the mp3.  

brandon-rogers-01-2007-03-13.jpg

BRANDON ROGERS – CAN’T HURRY LOVE

 He almost sounded like Phil Collins with his intro. And that squeak.

Shame for forgetting his lyrics. Pfft.

Listen to the mp3.   

melinda-doolittle-01-2007-03-13.jpg

MELINDA DOOLITTLE – HOME

Very good vocals but that was expected that Melinda will deliver that kind of diva-ish renditoin.

Listen to the mp3.
