Top, um, 8 men liveblog

I think. This year is confusing. They’re performing Motown? Yay.

Jessica March 4, 20158:58 pm

Quentin, never sing this kind of thing again please kthx

Reuben March 4, 20158:58 pm

This is the number in the Marley concert that you go out to find a weed dealer.

Reuben March 4, 20158:57 pm

Reggae: still the worst.

Jessica March 4, 20158:57 pm

This… isn’t so good?

Reuben March 4, 20158:56 pm

Quentin is singing Master Blaster

Reuben March 4, 20158:56 pm

This is why we have confidence intervals, people.

Reuben March 4, 20158:56 pm

I had Quentin ranked 1st, and obviously safe.

Reuben March 4, 20158:53 pm

Just want to note that if the last one through is not Quentin, that’s historic.

Reuben March 4, 20158:50 pm

I don’t know how it sounded in the room, but no. HCJr is wrong about the pitch.

Reuben March 4, 20158:48 pm

This is kind of a nightmare for me.

Jessica March 4, 20158:48 pm

His dancing is good but this is not a dancing thing

Jessica March 4, 20158:48 pm

Maybe he should dance less and sing better

Reuben March 4, 20158:48 pm

This is really flat, very off pitch.

Reuben March 4, 20158:47 pm

Qaasim is singing I Wish

Reuben March 4, 20158:47 pm

I had Qaasim ranked 4th, called safe.

Jessica March 4, 20158:45 pm

That was fine.

Reuben March 4, 20158:45 pm

I thought it was good. Not great, good.

Jessica March 4, 20158:44 pm

Are they mic’ing this kid correctly?

Reuben March 4, 20158:43 pm

Nick is singing Signed Sealed Delivered.

Reuben March 4, 20158:43 pm

I had Nick ranked 3rd, called safe.

Jessica March 4, 20158:36 pm

Good ending for sure

Reuben March 4, 20158:36 pm

I thought that was really good.

Jessica March 4, 20158:36 pm

This is cute

Reuben March 4, 20158:35 pm

I’m diggin it.

Jessica March 4, 20158:35 pm

Clark is no Smokey Robinson, but this is …ok…

Reuben March 4, 20158:34 pm

Clark is singing The Tracks of My Tears

Reuben March 4, 20158:34 pm

I had Clark ranked 2nd, called safe.

Jessica March 4, 20158:33 pm

This new white guy mentor is trying to bring back the Jheri curl

Reuben March 4, 20158:27 pm

That was certainly an interesting mess.

Jessica March 4, 20158:26 pm

He seems like a fun guy and all, but like, no.

Reuben March 4, 20158:26 pm

Note that I had Adam rated much higher than WhatNotToSing. I’m starting to think they aren’t good at polling rockers.

Jessica March 4, 20158:25 pm

I could do without Adam

Reuben March 4, 20158:25 pm

Adam is singing I Want You Back.

Reuben March 4, 20158:25 pm

Adam I had ranked 11th, rated too close to call.

Jessica March 4, 20158:19 pm

Yeah they don’t seem interested in doing that so far this year, and it kinda sucks

Reuben March 4, 20158:18 pm

Think of how cool that would have been if they’d just stuck with a minimal arrangement.

Jessica March 4, 20158:18 pm

This might be one of the best Motown performances we’ve heard in Idol memory; it helps that this theme is in Rayvon’s wheelhouse

Reuben March 4, 20158:18 pm

I agree that that started really strong. Then it went into well-above-average karaoke. Best of the night so far, but that’s a bar I’d have to crawl under.

Reuben March 4, 20158:17 pm

Rayvon is singing My Girl

Jessica March 4, 20158:17 pm

Lovely start by Rayvon

Reuben March 4, 20158:16 pm

Rayvon I had called safe, ranked 5th.

Jessica March 4, 20158:15 pm

Oh he was? Eew.

Reuben March 4, 20158:14 pm

This is also karaoke. Mark was a cast-off from The Voice, so screw him anyway. That sucked and I hope he goes home.

Jessica March 4, 20158:14 pm

Low bar: it’s better than Daniel!

Jessica March 4, 20158:14 pm

This is ok I guess

Reuben March 4, 20158:13 pm

Mark is singing Papa was a Rollin Stone

Reuben March 4, 20158:13 pm

I had Mark ranked 8th, but rated too close to call.

Reuben March 4, 20158:10 pm

That song has been sung 4 times before. AJ Gil and Will Makar were eliminated with it. Charles Grigsby and Kris Allen were safe.

Jessica March 4, 20158:07 pm

…is it supposed to be?

Reuben March 4, 20158:06 pm

I had no idea this song was this tuneless.

Reuben March 4, 20158:05 pm

This is not only karaoke, it’s not particularly good karaoke.

Jessica March 4, 20158:05 pm

Wow this is awful. Kid has no charisma and he is not singing well.

Reuben March 4, 20158:05 pm

Daniel is singing How Sweet It Is

Jessica March 4, 20158:04 pm

Super ugh

Reuben March 4, 20158:04 pm

I had Daniel as called safe. Correct but ugh.

Reuben March 4, 20158:00 pm

This is weird. Aretha Franklin != Gloria Gaynor.

Jessica March 4, 20158:00 pm

I thought Aretha Franklin was past the age cutoff, and also that it was men tonight
