More Fun with American Idol

It was British Invasion Week on American Idol. Being somewhat of an Anglophile, I enjoyed the 60's Brit music. The vocal coaches were Lulu, and Peter Noone, who were just OK.

Its always tough for people in their late teens/early 20's to sing songs from over 40 years ago.
There were two songs by Dame Shirley Bassey...a classic British Songstress for sure. I was happy to hear Lakisha Jones sing my favorite Bond theme: "Diamonds Are Forever", even if her tempo seemed a little off. Blake Lewis did a great job...I think he has such potential. The biggest surprise for me, without a doubt was Jordin Sparks, who sang the other Shirley Bassey signature song: "I Who Have Nothing" It was Jordin's best performance yet. As usual, Melinda Doolittle kicked ass, so no surprise there at all. She definitely deserves to win this thing.

Hi Rick,

Great review. I agree that Melinda and Jordin are technically the best singers. There are a couple other "performers" that I like to watch too.
