of 4 Redux: Hits from Today and Yesterday
Last week, a
twist in the tale as no singer was eliminated. Last
night, the past became the present. Tonight, the future
grows dim for one contestant, as we choose the three who
will be given trips to a hero's welcome next week. All
this, and Season 7 winner David Cook, last night's
mentor Harry Connick Jr., and some guy named Will.I.Am,
you may have heard of him, rock out. It's results time!
First, a salute to the
upcoming release of "The Great Gatsby", the top 4 sing "Crazy in
Love"... 20s style. My advice: read the book.
FORD FIESTA MOVEMENT
MISSION: design Fiestas inspired by the music you love. Kree and Angie
are in a country pop car. Amber and Candice have a rock & soul car.
Now we go to the Jimmy
ANGIE: Had the opprortunity
to shut down the competition. "Diamonds" wasn't the song it needed to
be. "Someone to Watch Over Me" wasn't "special enough."
AMBER: Last night, Amber
sounded karaoke, a great singer with the wrong song (on "Just Give Me A
Reason"). "My Funny Valentine" was crushed. A lot of ground to make up
in the voting, though.
CANDICE: She did a
magnificent job on BOTH songs, standing head and shoulders above the
KREE: Hasn't lived up to her
full potential. Did well, but the others redeemed themselves.
Let's go back to Season 7,
when it went down to the battle of the Davids... the David with the
Stratocaster prevailed. He ended up cutting two albums. In between gigs,
he's racing for Race for Hope to benefit brain cancer awareness.
Tonight, he sings the first single from his third album, "Laying Me
Low".... IT'S DAVID COOK!
Next up, another tune from
the soundtrack of "The Great Gatsby".... and his new album "#willpower".
Singing "Bang Bang", here's The Voice UK coach WILL.I.AM! Even when
you're watching Idol, you can't escape "The Voice".
Constantine Maroulis parlayed his time on Idol into acting, appearing in
"Rock of Ages" and "Jekyll & Hyde" (C-Note: SAW IT.)
Next up, "Every Man Should
Know"... that HARRY CONNICK JR. has a new album out by that name. Here's
the title track.
Okay, time to go home.
SERIOUS LIGHTS, SERIOUS MUSIC!
The three people who will
return for the Wheel of Death next week...
.... ANGIE MILLER....
Beverly, Massachusetts is waiting for you!
... CANDICE GLOVER!... Going
to Carolina in her mind!
That means Kree Harrison and
Amber Holcomb are your bottom two tonight. Both are heading home, but
only one will come back to compete.
KREE HARRISON.... You're
going to Texas!
... so is Amber, But she's
staying there. She sings us out with "I Believe In You and Me".
Next week... We spin the
Wheel of Death... and we will have your FINAL TWO.
