So the “theme” tonight is judge’s (judges’?) Pick, Scott Borchetta’s pick, and hometown pick. And there are four of them. And one will be voted off. Yay.
I’m amazingly uninvested in what happens. I might be upset if Jax is eliminated, but that’s about it.
I would be least angry if Jax wins, followed by Nick, then Rayvon, then Clark. So Clark will win, obviously.
WGWG + Southern
Rayvon is Rayvonning a Jason Derulo song and it’s very Rayvonny
Anybody else get an “air being let out of a balloon” thing from those high notes?
Scott is having Clark sing U2’s Beautiful day and yaaaaawn
This is a pretty weak opening
Scott is actually a boring person who makes boring choices. Also, watching that nice interaction was like seeing Sercei talk to Margery.
Now Clark is hollering
Kinda horrible tonight, Clark.
I think I saw Lee Dewyze busking in a subway recently.
Here are all the (African American) people you’ve eliminated.
Nick is doing Because the Night, which I think of as a 10,000 Maniacs song
Nick is a hotter chick than Patti Smith
But as Reuben informs me, Springsteen did write it
Oh gawd they have Jax singing The Who
This is a song about being promiscuous.
I give round 1 to Jax, as I’m wont to do.
What is Andy Grammer?
I don’t like this. It’s like Idol Going Home Sad But Not That Sad Music.
I’ll admit that was pretty good.
To be fair I hate everything
The Dock of the Bay is Reuben’s favorite song
Pretty good outing by Clark that time. Not bad at all.
Very confused about next week being the finale
Oh good, we definitely don’t hear enough Stevie Wonder songs on Idol
This episode is never really going to end, is it?
Oh goody an Evanescence song
Not a barnstormer, but damn good.
Clark is shouting something or other
Rayvon is singing us a lullaby. Or maybe it just feels that way.
Whoever arranged this is dumb.
“I know what will help, we’ll change the entire song and remove the parts people like”
I don’t feel that was a singer’s song that Jax did.
If Nick is anything like most musicians, he seriously resents having to sing this.
Nick is safe.
Clark is safe.
Jax is safe. Rayvon eliminated.
