IDOL VIRGIN | Shania’s six

In Idol Virgin on April 28, 2010 at 7:27 am

Another night of mediocre performances levels the playing field and raises serious question about who this week’s bottom three might be.

  • Lee (“Still the One”) was a little uneven vocally, but his performance worked overall and was coming from a strong place. A-
  • Mike (“It Only Hurts When I’m Breathing”) did fine, I’m just terminally bored with him. Maybe it’s the theatricality Simon’s always complaining about. I can’t quite put my finger on why he doesn’t work for me. B
  • Casey (“Don’t”), aside from venturing into new vocal territory, isn’t bringing much to this, other than a reminder that he’s a little bit country. B-
  • Crystal (“No One”) could have done without the backup singers in what was her worst performance of the season. She made the stage her home, though, with that mic stand and rug. B
  • Aaron (“You Got a Way”) also leans country like Casey, but was boring like Mike. B
  • Siobhan (“Any Man of Mine”): I’ve stopped asking what she’s wearing, though she had one of the night’s better vocals before her lame, overdone “I can hold a note” stunt. B+

If this is supposed to be judged based on whose album we’d buy, there’s got to be another metric that can be factored in, like making performances free and measuring the number of downloads a certain performer gets. There was so much to be unimpressed with that I have no idea who to expect will go home this week. My bottom three predictions are Aaron, Casey, and Mike or Siobhan.
