Check out Alex Lambert's version from the If I Can Dream house on Youtube! It kicks Katie's version's a-s-s!!!
I really liked her performance, and I love this song. This was the first time I liked her singing since Hollywood week. But I still feel she shouldn't be around much longer. Tim should go first, then maybe Andrew or Katie. Then Big Mike.
Now THAT's the Katie I know and love. I knew she had it in her and I hope she brings it next week too!
I think Katie, not Siobhan, is the dark horse this season. She's getting better and better every week. And this song just moved me. This performance, for me is the best for the night meaning even better that Simon's best, Casey James. I started to love her after singing "big girls don't cry" and the rendition od "chainss of love" last week was vocally GREAT! Now this version of this song is better than I think Brooke White. I'm still waiting for the studio version in itunes because up to this time it's still unavailable.
Aretha Franklin did this exact arrangement. So definitely no "artistic integrity" or anything original on Katie's part.
Katie along with Lee were my two favorites of the night. I hope everyone votes for Katie. She doesn't have a huge fanbase and she needs every vote she can get. So pick up the phone and vote 1866-43657-02. She was fantastic tonight!
Way to go Katie ! Fabulous performance. Such a good voice,.... and such a sweet and talented, deserving girl. Please vote for her...... 1-866-436-5702
was it me or this version sounds like the version Jennifer hudson did for the haiti show??
I thought it was a wonderful performance.
Very smooth and suitable for Kathy.
Just hope American votes for her tonight :).
This was really good! Much more emotion than last week! Better vocals than last week as well! GO KATIE! PLEASE VOTE FOR HER! <3 1-866-436-5702!
Just accept that she did great on this one so no need to say "blah blah did these arrangement.. blah blah version is the same as hers".
As I said above - no need for boy/girl comparison. Katie did fine job. Kris' version was more creative and he always shows so much emotion in his voice and uses phrasing so well.
Kris also did a good job with it but I wouldn't say better. Brooke has a very emotional performance with it but vocally she just doesn't compare with Katie in my opinion.
Never mind about Lee. Listened to it again... there were a few OUCH notes.. lol. But, it wasn't horrible. It was kind of cool.
Girl vs boy - I don't think there needs to be a comparison. Though I do agree that Kris' version was incredible. The listener can always hear the angst and emotion in Kris' voice in all his songs. Katie did a fine job, but Kris' arrangement was more creative.
Lessons on how to be a boring pageant queen??
She sang well, no doubt about that.....but she dressed as if she was the first lady! Siobhan has BRILLIANT artistic integrity and a presence that Katie will never achieve.
i think katie stevens should of won american idol.i voted for her 5 or 600 times a night. but with 35 million votes its very hard for my votes to count. she has a awesome voice.very pretty and great personality. now thats shes gone i dont see me watching the rest of the season.she is realy the reason i stayed glued to american idol this season. thank you and i wish the best of luck to her. thank you
