My kind of night... Let's ROCK!

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.

Loved tonight!

Bottom two? Chris and Blake.... Buh bye, Chris.

I'm not feeling on any of the songs because I don't know half of them, although the Bon Jovi dude himself seems very nice and appealing (I was never into the band, though). I like his teeth.

I also really like how Blake looks with the dark hair (he reminds me of Jason Bateman).

And what the hell with Lakisha and Simon?! He's got the hugest hard on for her, it's hilarious!

So, tomorrow, Jordin and Chris are gone! (do I win anything if I predict correctly?) ;)

I predicted Chris and Phil.

I loves me some Bon Jovi too. I was always a Richie girl, but Jon has certainly out-foxed him over the years.

Chris and somebody else. I predict I'm correct!

blake beatboxes to cover the fact he actually doesn't sing very well or memorably at all. unfortunately people are easily fooled by this and that makes me sad. his time will come ah ha!

You're right Anonymous. He'd never have been able to sustain the singing so it was a shrewd move. Who said you had to be able to sing? I don't recall that being in the rules.

In the world according to Simon "this is a singing competition"... if that's the case then we need some singers! (Melinda, Lakisha and Jordin are not included in that sentence)
