Tonight, the Top 6 sang songs from, Andrew Lloyd Webber. Webber is most noticed for his masterpiece broadway musicals, including “The Phantom of the Opera,” and “Cats” along with many others.
First up was Syesha Mercado singing “One Rock & Roll too many.” Andrew Lloyd Webber thought she would bring the house down with the song. Randy said tonight, Syesha was in her element. Paula said she agreed with Webber, and she brought the house down. Simon said she was sexy tonight, and agreed with Randy, she was in her element. I thought it was better than her previous songs. 4/5
Jason Castro was up next, singing “Memory” Webber thought that Castro “Kind of” understood it, Randy said the vocals were a trainwreck, later saying Castro is a beautiful guy. Paula said its usually a girl song, so thats why it didn’t work with him. Simon said it was like a young guy was forced by his parents to sing it at a wedding. I was a little iffy about the whole thing. 3/5. This “Memory” will easily be forgotten
Up third was Brooke White with “You Must Love Me.” Webber said she had no clue what she was singing, but after he tought her what the song was about, he was pleased with how realistic she made it look. She screwed up really bad when she begun, and had to start over. Randy liked the fact that she believed what she was singing, but didn’t really like the song. Paula said very firmly with a quiet crowd behind her to never start, then stop. What Paula liked about the performance is that Brooke did not overact the part. Simon said the performance was unconfortable. I agree. I gave it 2/5. The worst performance of the night.
David Archuleta took the stage next with “Think of Me.” Andrew Lloyd Webber told Archuleta to keep his eyes open in the song. Randy loved it and said it was the bomb, that Archie is the “one-to-be.” Paula said it was “Perfect” Simon said it was pleasant, and one of David’s weakest performances. I give it 3.5/5.
Carly Smithson came on stage next singing “Superstar.” Webber said she looked like a “happy girl” Randy said it wasn’t the best from her, but definetly good. Paula loved what she did with the song. Simon said it was one of his favorite performances of the night. I gave it 5/5. It was good.
The last one on stage was David Cook singing “Music of the Night.” Webber said he wished he was a 17 year old girl. Randy said it was an amazing vocal, Paula said it was fantastic, and Simon said, its not the side of him he likes, but he made the most out of the song. 5/5, my favorite of the night.
Here are my predictions:
- David Cook
- Carly Smithson
- Syesha Mercado
- David Archuleta
- Jason Castro
- Brooke White
