I missed week 2 due to migraine, so I didn’t know that Jessie Money was voted off last week.  I’m more than a little surprised by that.  I really thought Chloe or Landon would be gone.  So, this week’s victim was A’Kieba Burrell-Hammer.  I liked her but I saw this coming because she’s too unpolished and raw.  No one should have to tell her how to dress properly for the stage (I did see pics from last week).  Her voice is good, but she’s not close yet.

I see that Jesse Blaze Snyder is killing ’em right now, untouchable for the second straight week.  I did really like how he sang that song and his stage presence is unbelievable.  But he’s not my favorite.

I thought this the first week and my second show, third week, I’m convinced: Lil’ Al cannot sing.  He has a decent voice but he’s all over the place and can’t stay in key if someone threatened to beat him.  Al is not helping because he needs to let Lil’ Al find his own voice.  His voice is not as smooth as his father’s, so pretty songs like Night and Day don’t really work for him.  He should definitely be voted off in the double elimination.  All that said, with the right producers he could be HUGE!

I still can’t decide if I think Landon can sing.  Landon can work a crowd and he’s less porn than Lil’ Al (which also hurts Lil’ Al with the judges).  Long-term, I don’t see Landon being successful.  He’s missing something, but I can’t put my finger on what just yet.  If he makes it through, perhaps I’ll be able to figure it out.

Chloe will definitely have a career.  She’ll never be huge because her sound is too distinct and will only appeal to a few.  But her audience will be loyal and will love her.  And as she gets over her stage fright and gets more confidence on the stage, she sings better, puts more emotion into her voice.

I’m not liking Lucy Walsh anymore and I think she needs to go.  She has a great voice, but she’s bland and cookie cutter.

Since I’m sucker for a dude with a guitar, I love Crosby.

So, my four are: Jesse, Chloe, Crosby and Landon.  See you next week.
