Got Something to Add?
Not good at all. I love Creed and this is my favorite Creed song. To change it to a pop ballad was just a mistake and I hated it. The judges are so inconsistent too. They liked how she changed it up and made it her own yet when Todrick sang this week, they again blasted him for doing the same thing. If I were Todrick, I'd be saying "what?!?!?!?".
I am loving me some Michelle right now! This young lady has such a soulful quality to her voice and she has amazing stage presence as well. The camera absolutely loves her. She is definitely the dark horse in this competition. I pray that she will be here for a while. I think she will get better and better every week and suprise a few people before it is over. Do not under estimate her- she is definitely the real deal!
Michelle has an awesome voice and she is absolutely stunning! If this year's competition is based on talent, she should be at the top of the list right now with Big Mike close behind her. However, if history holds true with American Idol (Putting less talented singers above talented singers), she might not get her props. For once- I would like to see American Idol judge these contestants fairly! I am sick of the games.!
Once again I have to speak my peace. Michelle is just like Syesha this season. Syesha was at the bottom of mostly every dial idol score and she made to the top3. Plus even during the semi-finals peopled did not think she could make the top 12 or go pass top 10 and she did. So If I play it by idol history and factoring diversity there is no way she going home yet. It will be ridiculous for idol to have all the top 6 girls be mostly blonde with a brunette or two. Because the way I see she is the fits the diva spot and not paige.
Nick, I have to say that i disagree. Michelle has a better tonal quality to her voice than paige. Plus I do not know what kind of artist paige or lacey wants to be. At least i have a sense of what kind of artist Michelle wants to be. Michelle is not going home, you just watch and see.
It wasn't awful, but not great either. I do like that she picked that song though. Something unexpected which I do really like.
I just don't think she sang it all that well though.
Totally agree Gleekester Michelle is definitely becoming more and more relevant in this competition. I think that Didi and Lacey are by far the weakest performers but it's funny to me how people are blasting Paige and Michelle on these comments. The latter two are far and away stronger in voice and personality but yet everybody seems to just LOVE Didi and Lacey after two underwhelming performances they are the cannon fodder.
To respond to the negative feedback that Michelle is getting I think you guys are just not getting it. This is one her best performances despite the pitch problems she had. Michelle is getting better week after week. Michelle will not go home. The positive response she got from the judges was justified she took a risk and most of it paid off. It just irks me people are underestimating her idol potential on the show. Michelle is a great singer and i am sorry she has not wowed you yet. But she will wowed me and is will wow America
again with the wonky judging...this was terrible. she was so off vocally that i'm not sure how she got such positive feedback. i think her and lacey ought to go home this week. they're both dreadfully out of their league when it comes to vocals. as a sidenote...she really looks like mya.
I hate the song but it was a bold way to go. Good for that. For me she needed to bring more power to the vocal and pitch was off. Maybe she needed to take the key down slightly.
She's beautiful. The dress was awkward. I know it's a style but it just reminds me of someone who pulled the wrong thread and caused the fabric to bunch up.
I loved her rendition of the song. She has a very pleasant voice. I think the first half of the performance was really good. Vote for Michelle! :)
