The final four. Do you think Jordin and Lakisha know that they are fighting for their life this week? The thing is, the winner of that battle may just shock the world and go to the finale with Blake instead of Melinda. Could be an interesting couple weeks, can’t wait. On to the show.
Melinda Doolittle – “Love You Inside And Out” (B+)
Blah. It was fine, just boring. You have to expect more from Melinda.
Blake Lewis – “You Should Be Dancing” (B+)
It had to be a let down after last week. I was hoping that he would do a song without any beat boxing tonight, just to keep mixing it up. But it was still pretty good.
Lakisha Jones – “Stayin’ Alive” (B)
Everyone seems a bit timid tonight. Another so-so performance, which is too bad, cause she needed a big one to survive.
Jordin Sparks – “To Love Somebody” (A-)
Finally, someone came to play. Very nicely done, if round two goes like round one, Jordin is heading to the final three.
Melinda Doolittle – “How Can You Mend A Broken Heart” (A)
Much better. She didn’t necessarily need that to get to the next round, but she needed it to pick back up the momentum she has lost recently.
Blake Lewis – “This Is Where I Came In” (B-)
Not a great night for Blake, thankfully for him there isn’t a shot he goes home. He’s through no matter what.
Lakisha Jones – “Run To Me” (A-)
A little better, but not enough. She needed a home run on that to get through and unfortunately I think that was just a ground rule double.
Jordin Sparks – “Woman In Love” (B-)
OK, just when I think Lakisha is heading home. Jordin decides to end the night on a sour note. Still I think that first performance should put her over the top.
