my neighbor’s step-mother makes $82/hour on the computer. She has been fired from work for nine months but last month her paycheck was $12173 just working on the computer for a few hours. Read more here… http://www.Snap70.cℴm

Love Song by the Cure is one of my all-time favorite songs and I was so excited to hear that Candice would be singing it. I just knew that she would put her own twist on it but keep the original passion in the song. I was telling my co-workers that I could listen to her sing the song all day long because she evoked real emotion from the words. It carried through in her performance and I loved the song that much more. I can’t wait to see what song she’ll be singing next week.

Candice has an okay voice. Every year we have the Elle Fitzgerald/Thelma Houston token singer that can really belt – but so what? They are usually limited to an R&B style and that is it. Candice sucked on Beatles week and Classic rock week.

Even this performance is just ok. Nothing we haven’t seen before in previous years. Best on Idol ever?? Hardly…

For anyone who thought Candice’s performance was just okay and not something special here’s a suggestion. Go on craigslist and buy yourself a new set of ears.

Truly one of the great AI performances of all time. Right up there with Kelly Clarkson’s “can’t live”, Carrie Underwoods, “Alone,” Adam Lamberts “Mad world,” and David Cooks “Billy Jean.”

Pure electric, start to finish…she has this competition totally locked up.

@Don12:

I’m sorry but Candice is very different than the typical. She has such nuance and dimension. She can sing softly and loudly but doesn’t yell everything. Her note choices, range, and how she emotes is far better than any of the other contestants. I love the quirkiness and her interpretations. She has such a pleasing tone. Normally, I’m really an acoustic kind of girl but I could listen to Candice since all day long. So sorry, she is far better than most of the singers ever on idol.

@Don12:

If you knew anything about music theory, you would recognize that her intonation, control over her vibrato, her choice of notes that fit the chord changes perfectly and her overall phrasing, and dynamic ability in this tune made this perhaps one of the best performances published on national television. Its about the vocal ability, not the genre.
