"Week Two": July 18-20, 2005

Before we start with this recap we're going to discuss all of the ways to be voted in the bottom three in a competition.

Sounding like garbage
Sounding just OK, and not doing anything to warrant people voting for you.
Not being charismatic enough to get votes
Insulting Dave Navarro
Insulting INXS
Insulting the other contestants
Stepping on toes and being TOO competitive (JD)

All of these things have been done by at least one person in the group. Which violation will be the deadliest?

The show is starting up. We say hi to Brooke, hi to INXS and hi to Dave Navarro, but we'll be saying good-bye to one of the 13 people left.

We come over to last night's highlights and relive the night that JD put his foot in his mouth. We also get to see the rest of the competitors (sans JD) eating dinner. The contestants, as could be expected, weren't thrilled with JD's 'While everyone else is learning the INXS songs, I know them all and I love them' comment. Mig talks about how he can't eat and everyone else in the room started trashing JD, who happens to came in as the group descends on him like a hungry pack of wolves. JD, on the other hand, says that he meant no ill will, BUT he did mean what he said. People are just learning about the song, and JD says that he knows all of them by heart, and he wanted to explain to INXS how serious he is to win this. You have to admire JD's passion, but tit's not going to get him many votes to place himself over everyone else.

Dave, however, sees it a different way. Dave is asked about it, and he says that in defense of JD, that some of them are trying to audition for A band, while JD is trying to audition for THIS band. We go over to INXS, who says that they only care about what goes on stage, and not the backstage shenanigans. That being said, they have praise for three performers - Suzie, Mig and... JD (using his voice to fit the song).

Well, we hear who INXS is happy with. We'll now find out who the audience is unhappy with. I will laugh if Suzie, Mig and JD are the three. They aren't - Tara, Jessica and Neal are. Well, they weren't wonderful last night and even Dave said that none of the results surprised him. Neal's guitar playing took away from his vocals, Tara was once again flat, and Jessica was all over the place, pitch-wise.

INXS wants Neal to improve his melody and attitude. Hence his assignment is Suicide Blonde. The tone was still all over the place and Neal better hope that one of the women screws up worse than he did.

Tara is next up - and she continues to say 'yes' and 'absolutely' like a good yes-woman. Her song is 'Mystify' and she sounds very good singing it. It's neither country nor rock and roll, and she blows Neal out of the water.

It's Jessica's turn to sing. They want her to get into rock, so she gets 'Don't Change'. It's 'alright', but she's not sounding like she's singing this like someone who is singing for their existence on a singing show should be singing. She's all over the place like Neal, and this could be a very close race between her and Neal to go bye-bye.

Gary says that Tara sang well, but she could have used the stage well. Neal used he used the stage well, but his voice was rough. Jessica had an awful starts but she improved greatly during the song. The person who is the first to be safe? Tara (duh), as she gets to be safe. The person who isn't safe - Neal. He's not right for INXS and he's leaving. Ty and Tara, who both thought that Jessica is going bye-bye, are both aghast in shock.

Neal thanks the band and he goes over to give them a hug. Jessica looks stunned to still be in the running. JD looks like he wants to hide behind a speaker. Join us in 5 days to see if JD even makes it to next week's Monday show without getting a group beatdown.
