American Idol Season 11 Episode 19 Review
Why is that we become nostalgic, when we hear songs from earlier days of our life? It is simply because we miss those days, and during those days we used to hear lyrically perfect songs, as compared to today. Well, that is what is happening this week in American idol. They have decided to plan a new session, where singers have to sing songs from the year they were born.
There is news that after long, we will get to hear why Jermaine Jones was kicked out of the show. The trailer shows Ryan leading the pack, and also the elimination highlights. We will get to know who all are going to board their flights back home soon.
Well, reviewing each song and contestant is never easy; still, let us take a look at those who walked away with accolades, and who had to suffice with fewer points. Starting off from the low scorer:
DeAndre Brackensick, born in 1994, Song: “can you feel the love tonight,” by the legendary Elton John. Every judge highlighted the fact that the song wasn’t good enough for him, and he had made a mess of it. As for points, he ended with a 1 out of 5. Buck up kid.
Heejun Han, born in 1989, Song: “Right Here Waiting for You”, a song by Richard Marx. Though, the singing was quite OK, but the judges didn’t seem too impressed, and rated it 2 out of five. They found the song boring, and were unanimous on their advice that he should stick to his R&B’s. Though JLo appreciated his song, but it was negated by Steven’s comments.
Jessica Sanchez, born in 1995, Song: “Turn the Beat Around,” by Gloria Estefan. One of the best singers of the lot decides to give her worst performance; she starts the practice rounds well, but ends up with a 2 out of 5. As for comments, she was advised to stick to the rhythm of the song.
Phillip Phillips, born in 1990, Song: “Hard to Handle,” by Black Crowes. He tries to influence the judges with his sad story, but the verdict comes out solely on his performance basis, and his commitment for the show. He gets 4 out of 5.
Shannon Magrane’s “One Sweet Day,” Erika Van Pelt’s “Heaven” all end in 2 out of 5 with similar comments. The show stoppers were not to be inhibited by these performances, and contestants like Josh Ledet, Hollie Cavanagh, Skylar Laine, etc., stole the show completely with their superb performances. See the episode, to know about Jermaine’s relegation, and some exceptional performances.
