The remaining 4 will perform the songs of Anne Murray…

Jordin Sparks performs on the Results show tomorrow night!

I didn’t realize that Anne Murray performed many covers during her career. That fact made it a snap for the boys to pick gender-appropriate songs. Murray’s advice was good, her ability to hone in on each contestants most glaring weakness was canny, and the advice she gave out was useful.

Earl Stevenson decides to take a vacation–in the middle of his performance. I’m a little afraid for him this week. I’m thinking a Drew/Theo final two at this point. I wouldn’t be completely surprised at a Drew/Mitch final. How dull would that be?

  • Mitch MacDonald“Cotton Jenny” by Anne Murray – Mitch’s interpretation of “Cotton Jenny is flat, whiny, nasally and boring. Jake calls him out on the flat singing. Sass has a thing for Mitch for some reason I can’t figure out. I laughed out loud at Zack’s SCTV shout out “Perry Como lying on a couch in a sweater”.
  • Earl Stevenson – I love me some Earl, but I have to agree with Zack’s criticism of his performance. His wandering around the stage is a little distracting, and I didn’t feel like he connected to the song.“Killing Me Softly” by Anne Murray
  • Drew Wright – Drew looks fantastic clean shaven. The latest look should get him a at least a few more votes. Not crazy about this song choice, but I have to agree with the judges–one of Drew’s better vocals.“Hey Daddy” by Anne Murray
  • Theo Tams – “You Don’t Know Me” – Whoa, Theo! His performance is gorgeous, heartbreaking. When he stops oversinging, he’s a knockout! Just fantastic. Zack said it was flavorless. WTF? More astute is Jake, who says he thought Theo put his heart and soul in the song.
  • Mitch MacDonald“Between the Bars” by Elliott Smith – Has Mitch read the lyrics to this song? It’s full of angst and pain. You’d never know it from his bland interpretation. Mitch HAS to go this week.
  • Earl Stevenson“The Joker” by the Steve Miller Band – What is up with Earl this week? The lights are on, but nobody’s home. Where’s the fun, the playfulness? Earl’s just going through the motions. Jake says it looked like, at one point, that Earl didn’t want to be there. Maybe he doesn’t…
  • Drew Wright“Gravity” by John Mayer – Drew is bringing it this week–another good performance. Farley calls it “blues lite”, nevertheless I there are some nice vocal flourishes here, particularly when Drew slides up into his falsetto. Very nice. At this point, between his pretty boy looks and improved vocals, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Drew in the Top 2.
  • Theo Tams“Chariot” by Gavin DeGraw – The judges are wetting themselves over this, but I think Theo’s first song was better. His vocal is a bit out of breath. And hello! The extraneous runs are back! But it’s a very energized performance, the judges seem to like that. Zack said it was the performance of the night. I’d say it was his first.
