    I just remember the very last note from the Caitlin Michele's performance of this song. I actually watched it again and Angie can't even come close to that performance. =.=

    Burnell and Amber would kind of be like Whitney and Bobby, wouldn't they? Amber was good, but I need something more from her, performance-wise.

    Lazi's bf was in town last week so of course he didn't have time for lyrics.

    So Angie gets a more modern song and everyone else had to sing old fogey songs. lols

    Burnell/Candice duet was by and far the best thing we heard tonight.

    They make exceptions for the chosen one. Angie was ok.

    Best song choice by far, at least.

    @Klope62 im sorry but I hated it.....just saying and I do like Candice but not that

    @ArchieSue What are some obvious things that distinguish "modern" from "old fogey" besides that you know they were recorded a long time ago?  Not being sarcastic.  We all know it when we hear it...but objectively do you know what the qualities are?

    @Mikhail XO I hate the "only one day to prepare" excuse. Maybe if each contestant had ever heard more than three songs in their life, they wouldn't have to be flipping out the day of performances trying to learn a song that most people should probably come out of the womb knowing.


    Seriously, how do you make it through life with as shallow a music knowledge base as these finalists? Especially when you're trying to be a SINGER.

    @ArchieSue His attitude ruined the cute for me. Lol ; I'm sensitive to that junk.

    @doobeedoo @ArchieSue When I think of classic rock, I think of the 70's but of course there are some stuff in the 60's and 80's that could be classic rock. I just don't think that song is old enough to be consider classic rock. But what do I know, there may be a new definition for it.

    @NickRoman1 @Mikhail XO Totally agree. Where have these kids been?

    But I guess if they insist on themes from before these guys were born...

    That's no excuse, they should still know some of these songs though.
