From Nigel Lythgoe on Twitter: "Percy Sledge contacted IDOL and said how much he enjoyed Joshua singing his song!!! Thanks Percy, that means a great deal to a young artist."
Joshua managed to channel so much old school R and B into this performance...he is becoming a performer. Percy Sledge, James Brown, Wilson Pickett, Sam and Dave are flowing through his performances. You don't have to be new and original all the time, but be good at what you are doing. Josh gets it and this was a great performance to just sit back and watch and listen to. It may be his best for the season, but it is certainly a great one to have hanging out there.
The pimping of Joshua made me sick. OKAY we get it, you want to have at least one african american on tour. The second I saw the crawfish I knew it was coming. They did the same to Jacob last year. Oh and bye bye Erika. Shes toast.
Ok after watching this again, it was pretty darn good. He gave me a little of a James Brown feel to it which is sweet. One of his best performances.
He's way over the top. Is that the real emotion when a man loves a woman? Damn! He's angry I think. Is he gay? Can't he really relate to the song? And I felt, 'through out the performance that he's straining his voice too much. So it's a very uncomfortable performance for me.
From the first time I heard him sing, I thought he was brilliant. I agree with the idea that he's the most interesting male vocalist the show has ever had, including Lambert and David Cook. He has a classic soul voice the likes of which we haven't had in pop for a long time.
AMAZING!! If the competition is based strictly who is the most talented, Joshua should win this whole thing. Unfortunately it doesn't work that way, however. I just wish people would get behind him. There is no one even close to him in this competition. He is up there with such greats as Al Green and Aretha Franklin. I haven't seen this kind of talent on American Idol ever! Every song he has done, I have listened to over and over again. It takes me to another place. Please vote for him!
@henderking Why would it matter? And no, I don't think he is, but again it doesn't matter.
@Mikhail XO Joshua is talented, but was in overdrive the whole song. Too much.
@Mikhail XO Don't faint...but I totally agree. Was put-off by over-kill to the point that I couldn't enjoy the performance.at.all. Jennifer is on crack on this one.
@Mikhail XO No,
