Here’s Janell on last night’s Idol:
Things are getting real, y’all. It’s the final day of Hollywood week, and all 100 remaining contestants get one final solo, with a band, backup singers, instruments, the works. Or not.
We start with Haley Reinhart, who forgot the lyrics in her group performance and was scolded by Jennifer Lopez. She has a big growl, and the judges like her again.
Then there’s “new face” Ashthon Jones, who was in the group with emotional drama queen Ashley Sullivan. Ashthon does a fine job, and Ryan Seacrest’s voiceover says that the female talent is impressive.
Thia Megia continues the female streak, she’s got a lower voice and good control, Jennifer calls her amazing. She doesn’t sing like a 15-year-old, but she wears the colorful sweater of one.
Adrian Michael, Caleb Johnson, and Frances Coontz restart a few times. Ryan Seacrest takes a moment with the keyboardist, who admits that he’s not enjoying the day so much.
