Naima Adedapo – Summertime – American Idol Top 24 – Video MP3
Naima Adedapo sings Summertime on the American Idol Top 24
Naima designed her dress. She chose Summertime because it was like home to her.
Rickey: To be fair, it’s a different version from Fantasia. It was OK for me. I love her personality though. I hope she goes far! Go Naima!
Steven Tyler: I take you personally. It was like early Ella Fitzgerald.
Jennifer Lopez: You bring color. You are like an exotic flower.
Randy Jackson: It was a little bit lounge acty. You made it interesting for yourself.

Naima Adedapo may not have been chosen since the American voters are a bunch of kids voting, but the fact is, she is an awesome jazz singer. You know, Ella Fitzgerald wouldn't appeal to a bunch of teenagers now either, but she is a legend. Naima don't give up. As a fan of some of the greatest Jazz legends we've ever had; Billy Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Anita O'Day, I think you are more talented than any of those singers on stage at American Idol. They are pop star material. You are a jazz singer, and that's a real singer! I have the feeling this isn't going to be the last America hears from you!
One of the worst performances ever, on Idol. The nightmare she called a dress, the cheesy overacting and the horrid oversinging made this a joke of a performance. I want that 1.5 minutes of my life back and that whole image blipped from my memory.
Im really tired of this song on Idol. Tho I did like it better then the slower versions I heard, Im still not a fan.
It was good. Hopefully Thia megia makes it too!!!! Naima was kind of in comparison to Leona Lewis' version. It was decent,though.
