Can I tell you how much I LOVE Bon Jovi? They were one of my first favorite hair bands. I actually saw them open for Ratt -- before they were infamous. Oh the nights I've spent listening to their songs, drinking with my friends and chilling. They just flat out rock.
I'm just going to make a blanket statement... I LOVE this song... I would wind up saying that for all the songs we hear tonight.
Let's see what happens...
Phil: Blaze of Glory -- WOW! That has to be his best performance ever. He's no Chris Daughtery or Jon Bon Jovi for that matter, but he did great! I even liked the get up he had on. He hung up the muppet look for the night.
Jordin: Livin' on a Prayer -- Not her best. I think she picked something too big for her. Shakey at the beginning but she did a great job with the chorus. I didn't like the Diana Ross hair either. Probably her weakest performance in a while. She's probably safe... but it may put her in the bottom.
LaKisha: This Ain't a Love Song -- Not a "known" song, so it sounded original. She sounded great. It was a good choice for her. She could release that one and it would be at the top of the charts. She looked freakin' ANGRY. But it was a great performance. She's safe.
Blake: You Give Love a Bad Name -- God I hope he doesn't beat box to this song! And what's up with the dark hair? I understand wanting to be original and wanting to make it your own -- BUT -- don't ruin it by spitting in the microphone. I agree with Jon... this is a singing competition... not beat box. I KNOW that is what he is all about, but come on! When he sang, he sang well -- I just can't stand the other stuff he did. The judges loved it... I didn't. I guess I'm a purist and very protective of the songs I love.
Chris: Wanted Dead or Alive -- Such a tough song. He doesn't have the gravelly sound you need for this song. I don't see Chris driving a Harley and being a bad guy... he's more of a souped up, rice burner type of kid... know what I mean? I didn't like it. He needs to be the next to go. I agree with Simon - he did the best he could possibly do.
Melinda: Have a Nice Day -- For someone that isn't a rocker she did a great job. You can tell she wasn't too comfortable with it, but I think she was awesome! LaKisha beat her in this round, but she will still be safe.
Bottom two? Chris and Blake.... Buh bye, Chris.
