iTunes are available! I just downloaded mine, and I’m listening now. You can purchase by clicking the the banner here –>. You help support the site too if you click, so thanks in advance! My take:

  • Michael Johns – …Dream On by Aerosmith – I love the texture of Michaels voice. It’s like a gravel road, it’s got tons of character. I liked his performance Tuesday night, and I like this even more.
  • Syesha Mercado – …I Believe by Fantasia – Eh. I’m just not digging this. The song is drivel and Syesha doesn’t bring anything new here.
  • Jason Castro – “Over the Rainbow” by Israel Kamakawiwo – Lovely, lovely, lovely, even though I could have done without the background vocals. Jason’s voice records so well. It’s your loss, Randy.
  • Kristy Lee Cook – …Anyway by Martina McBride – She records well. Her best performance
  • David Cook – …Innocent by Our Lady Peace – If you didn’t care for his performance, listen to this download. The song didn’t lend itself very well to the Idol edit. There’s a world of difference in the studio version. Me likey!
  • Carly Smithson – …The Show Must Go On by Queen – Hm. She really should have picked another song. She can’t bring this song to life in the studio either.
  • David Archuleta – …Angels by Robbie Williams – Nice vocals from Archie. Not digging the song, though
  • Brooke White – …Youve Got A Friend by James Taylor/Carole King – I can hear Brooke on the radio right now. She’s got a slightly raspy quality to her vocal that sounds great recorded.
