Ramiele: Snooze. But at least your hair didn't confuse me (although your outfit did). I think (hope?) we'll be saying goodbye to you this week.
Syesha: You keep getting better and better, and your elegant performance this week surprised me. Nice work! And I love your hair.
Chikeze: You've got charm, but frankly I think you're the weakest singer among the men. You're in danger. I predict the bottom three for you tonight.
Brooke: I thought the song was great for you, and you are just so genuine. And pretty! I feel like we could be BFF. Shoot me an e-mail and I'll tell you how to find me on Facebook.
Michael: Your performance made me forget the performances that had come before you. And dude, you are just so HOT.
Jason: The pants, the pants, the pants! They are still too tight! You are the male version of Brooke, though, with your honesty, charm, and genuine-ness. Was it just me or was there something weird going at the the beginning of your song, though? Until you started grooving with the Spanish, I had a hard time hearing your vocals.
Carly: You appeared to have a stick up your ass during that entire performance. I'm sorry; that must have been very uncomfortable.
David A.: I love you, I really do. But your youth is starting to show and dude, you need to drop the goody-two-shoes routine. Let your hair down! Do something crazy! Drop an f-bomb! (OK, maybe not the last one, but you get the idea.)
Kristy: That song makes me feel a little ill, and I think it was manipulative of you to choose it. It was a fine performance, but as boring as usual.
David C.: They saved the best for last this week. You were amazing. You were so amazing that anyone reading this who did not see it needs to check it out. Thank you, YouTube:
EDITED: I was so curious about this version of "Billie Jean" that it finally occurred to me to do some sleuthing about Chris Cornell. You all probably know this already, but Chris Cornell was the lead singer of Soundgarden and Audioslave. His June 2007 solo album includes his acoustic cover of "Billie Jean." Here's a version from YouTube:
