Re: American Idol 4/18 and 4/25
I also thought Katherine did a great job with that song. I do not think that the standard of "you're no Whitney Houston" is quite fair. Judge her on whether or not she belted out the song, not whether or not she measures up to someone as great as Whitney Houston. I thought that she did a great job with a great song. No, she's not Whitney Houston, but then if a person trying to break into the industry has to measure up to the superstar that sung the song originally, they're all screwed.
Chris, I do not listen to much popular music these days, that was a great song, all I know it is by Bryan Adams according to McConnell on the radio this AM. What is the name of that song and when did he do it? But I agree, that was a memorable song and performance.
I'd vote off Kelly, that was pitiful, and from what I hear, that's two straight stinkers (I missed last week). Taylor stays because that is really the first time I've seen him not do well, although he did not completely butcher it, that was only average at best. I thought it rose about the level of hotel lounge karioke though. I think Simon has it in his contract to say that at least once per program.
