Got Something to Add?
We thought that Casey, Crystal, Lee and Katie were the best of the night. We actually think that Michael is overrated. Last night turned out (sans the save) exactly as we had hoped. :)
Crystal and Lee have always been my personal favorites. Of course, I don't vote. ;)
check this out everyone!!!
you can all listen to his songs on his albums
lee was such a good singer!!!
i would love to buy his album!!
Go LEE DEWYZE!!
I think people are distracted by the raspiness and the cool tone of his voice.
He actually is pretty pitchy at times.
I think the bagpipes were a smart move because America will remember that no matter how ridiculous/unneccessary they are.
I really hate Lee Dewyizhestill here, ugh. I just don't get why people like this hack so much...he's awful!
Having the bagpipe accompaniment was brilliant. Not to mention, he's one of the top ranked bagpipers in the world and deserved a little more respect from the judges. They should feel honored to have the privilege, as should the rest of us.
his looks like he is someone from "family guy"... i mean, his face... :P
anyways, his performance was ok... we've heard better cover... i agree with rickey, What's up with the bagpipe...
wow!! sorry Lee fans, this was just awful, it started awful, and ended even worse, i have seen to many Lee's on AI, and i dont get that he is a front-runner? IMO everyweek he sounds the same, its like the same song everyweek to me, maybe it's b/cuz i really love real rock music, again JMO Lee isnt even close to some of the idols that have hit that stage, to be honest, i think he should be in the bottom 3, that was plain werid, and [not ] werid in a good way! this dude is so overrated, everyweek he is all over the place, and i just dont get all the Lee love.
Regardless of technical singing an average fan will listen to someone who has a distinctive voice and can perform. Do you think having the best technical voice means anything in the music business. I mean artists like Kesha , T-pain, etc., obviously show it's not that important. Lee can perform and has a voice you can easily identify. It felt like you were watching a live show. I'd rather what his off key singing any day then to be sung to sleep by a karaoke Aaron Kelly performance that looks like just another sea world competition.
Not the BIGGEST Lee fan but I really do like him. I thought it was great until the bagpipes. I thought people were getting too distracted from his vocals and I forgot about the first part of the song that I loved.
unlike some of the other contestants, this guy can actually perform. he makes you want to WATCH his performance, not just listen. Katie Stevens? Beautiful voice, a much better singer than Lee (he has an interesting, gravelly voice, but he can't use it that well), and a snoozefest to watch.
Casey, Crystal Bowersox and Siobhan had THE performance tonight - excellent singing, excellent performance.
This was half the performance of last week. Take away the bagpipes and it would have been forgettable. Worse part was the director panned the crowd in the last part and they looked bored and disinterested.
rickey, can we please download the mp3 performances of tonight please....thanks, god bless you always
Didn't get the bagpipes and thought it was distracting, tho it was almost worth it to hear Ellen's witty comment. I thought Lee sounded very pitchy in the beginning, but loved how he engaged the crowd in a very "Springsteen-ish" kind of way. He really loosened up; go Lee!
I like Lee's voice, didn't mind/even liked the bagpipes and want him to do well, but some of his pitch choices/misses literally make me cringe... Because of that, his was a bottom- half performance for me tonight.
I thought it was a very unique way to bring everyone singing the nanana parts. The bagpipes are amazing :) Thought it brought something totally new and unique and his riffs or runns when he is singing hey jude amazing :)
the Beattles are def not Scottish, they are all from Liverpool so the bagpipe are not really appropriate here... the American maybe don't know but Scottish and English are really in good terms
but quite like the performance
This guy is way overrated.
off key, pitchy all over the place & the whole performance was a real mess
and still got overpimped by the judges and his tone deaf fans !
This is sad !
Gaaaah! I love love LOVE Lee DeDewyze! Look at him getting all loose and down with it. And he's totally feeling the sexy the last couple of weeks. Can we say he might even pull off a win? :-O
Lee Dewyze bagpipes = David Cook vocoder (both on Beatles night, btw). The piper was about as goofy as the Framptonator, but it didn't hurt Cook, and it won't hurt sexyLee.
Vocals shmocals. Lee is HOT.
Even though Lee was off on a couple of high notes, I thought the overall performance was very entertaining. I really like what he did with the song. I wish he had more time to sing the whole song. I also liked the bagpipes. You really couldn't hear them all that much and he waited till the end to bring them in. Very entertaining and original on Lee's part! Still think he has a great, sexy voice that will carry him to the finals. He's super talented and can sing just about anything and make it sound good.
I really liked this performance. I thought the bagpipes dude was actually really smart because it entertained everyone and it could have won him votes. I thought it was sneaky-smart... if that makes sense... lol.
little danny goleky babies lol. i can't wait to hear the studio version of the song , he has a perfect studio voice which is why i think he'll do very good off of idol following daughtry and cook , in the pop rock. but its not like it wasn't even a singing show , it was like he was putting on a concert.
I like Lee, but I didn't like his singing tonight...
But the attempt to interact with the audience was nice =)
his not a darkhorse please? His another 2nd overrated version of david cook, annoys me. Casey 2nd overrated version of Bo Bice.
preaching to the choir, laff!
the vocal and arrangement wasn't the best but he showed mad personality tonight. can't you just imagine him being all "dude i'm totally going home". plus the yoda-speak clip??? a very good night for some quality lee footage.
i'm sure the studio recording will be much better. he seemed like he couldn't commit to his rasp tonight.
whatever, GO DARK HORSE!!!
To bad the audience wasn't that responsive. I thought the director goofed in showing how lifeless the audience was during the last half of Lee's performance.
