January 25, 2007: "Where Do I Sign?" Season 5, Episode 3

Blake, put your hat back on. Welcome to Week 3, where the judges are a little rougher around the edges and the favorite is clearly Angela Hacker. She chose another good song for her style. Her voice sounded a little strained this week, almost like it needed a rest, but somehow it still rose to the top. She's basically the only one who got a positive word out of Anastasia, so that says something tonight. But the truth is, I just wanted her to keep singing. As for the others, congrats to Meg Allison for being called back. I'm sure she was happy being the first announced, since she had to wait the entire show to be called to the mic last week. Her song selection bored me tonight - I know she has this tender voice, but she needs to rock out once in a while. Randy talked about her smile and her outfit, so what does that say about her performance? It's "just about as alive as overcooked pasta." Uh, OK, Anastasia. What was weirder? Blake mumbled something about being a proud father and being turned on. Easy there, judges. Now, talk about rockin' out... David St. Romain really let it fly. The beginning was a little slow, but it was fun in the end. Even so, I think I might start favoring Joshua - he's growing on me a little, even though he hasn't taken my advice and fixed his hair at all. Still, his voice was so steady and clear tonight. In fact, I might have believed for a second that he was singing to me. Blake said it gave him chills. Jewel was arguing (nicely) with Anastasia. All in all, a good night for Joshua. Zac's throaty love for Memphis was down-home, fried-chicken tasty. He's definitely himself up there, and I've said that from the beginning. The teddy bear has a bite in his growl, and I like it. I'm not sure he can take on his sister, though. Now, I know these singers are nervous, and waiting to be called must seem like an eternity. But Kacey Musgraves looked like she didn't care the entire time she stood on that stage. She had dead eyes, a fake smile, a defeated stance. It's almost as if she knew. And then she blamed Blake! I was ready to see her go last week. But Whitney did not sound good to me. At first, I thought, "Is that the right key?" In fact, my roommate came out from the other room and said, "Painful!" Not that we're country experts by any means, but it was pretty obvious that something was not right about that performance. It's too bad she didn't get to sing what she really intended to, but that doesn't make up for her sour pitch. I can't believe how fast this competition goes by. I appreciate the brevity of it - it doesn't have a lot of extra fluff wasting our time and prolonging each episode. Jewel's one-on-one time was a good way to get a recap of the contestants' feelings about last week - their little coffee talk did seem obviously staged and a little forced, but Jewel brought an ease to the table, and it was short and sweet. I actually like the twist of having the judges choose the songs next week, too. It'll be a big test for the remaining contestants, and at this point, they're ready for meatier challenges to really weed out the weak. My money's still on Angela, but I guess anyone can surprise us at this point and throw some fuel on the fire. show less
