I watched James Durbin do "Maybe I'm Amazed" (he was my favorite). I watched Haley Reinhart do "Blue" and I only had to hold my ears for about 30 seconds. Then, there was Jacob Lusk doing "I Believe I Can Fly". If I could find a video, I'd post it. He actually inspired this post. Here's what the judges said:
Here's what I say. "The song is not 'I Believe I Can Cry'. It's 'I Believe I Can Fly'. Hitting the notes is only half the battle. Attitude has a large role in presenting a song and this song should be about pride. You made me want to huddle up in a corner and weep. It'd be like Aerosmith doing 'Limp This Way' which is how Steven is making me feel. Come back after you've grown a pair. And get these wussy smoke blowing losers off my podium."
And that, my friends, is why I don't watch these types of shows.
