Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

'Nuff said. The Final Four have great material to choose from- let's hope that they choose wisely! (I'm not going into too much detail because most likely you have watched the show if you are reading this. Hope you're ok with that.)

DC- Song 1- He didn't change much from the Duran Duran version (go '80's music!) but I liked the rocker feel. Song 2- Still didn't change much, but as Simon said, good enough to get him into next week.

Syesha- Song 1- I didn't think that this was a home run vocal, but is was a great performance. Song 2- She looks great- the dress is amazing! I really liked this- her vocal was full and emotional (witness the tears after she was done...), and I believe that she will go to the top 3 with what she brought tonight.

Jason-of-the-Dreads- Song 1- I think that I may be the only person that liked this version of 'I shot the sheriff'. (It has never been one of my favorite songs.) I would buy it. Song 2- Ooh, the words! I love me some tasty Jason, but I think that based on his performances tonight he'll be going tomorrow.

Archie- Song 1- This was an obvious choice for him- wins the first round. Song 2- OK, y'all know how I feel about Archie in general but I have to say he was the best of the night. This is the only cover of Love Me Tender that I've ever liked. You just don't mess with the King and he did good.

OK, to recap: David, Syesha, and Archie will be the top three. I will still, however, buy Jason's album- I just love his voice; smooth and creamy.

What'd you think? I'm hoppin' over to Boo's Place to see what everyone else is saying- Join me!

I completely agree with your thoughts on Jason. He is the only one that I can say for sure that I'm going to be waiting for his first album. I was sad to see him do so poorly tonight.

I totally would buy Jason's cd and so would the rest of my family. I think the Davids and Syesha are all great singers, but I can't see buying one of their cds...
enjoyed your review! :)

I'm with you 100%. Good review. So sorry to say goodbye to Jason, but it's time.

Yeah, I'm thinking Jason may be headed home. But, he still rocks, and I'd buy his album too. :)
