Tonight is “threes” night. Three contestants, three songs, three judges. The judges get to pick round one, the contestants chose their own fate in round two, and Jimmy picks round three.
After Miss Skylar’s untimely ouster last week, each of these kids needs to prove they deserve to be here.
Tonight’s theme is California and Songs You Wish You’d Written. Didn’t they already do inspirational songs week. Running out of themes, Uncle Nigel?
Tonight is essentially a throwback night. Round 1 is the 60s then round two is Brit Pop. Which considering that British Invasion happened in the 60s there will be some serious overlap. Mentors? Steven Van Zandt, aka Little Stevie from the E Street Band. Rockin!
We kick off the night with a Wednesday night medley! A Queen medley with Roger Taylor and Brian May … Sah-weet! This was pretty awesome and definitely one of my fave medleys of the season.
Holy crap, everyone is singing twice! That is 14 performances in a two-hour episode. Man, Nigel is taking notes finally, huh? I think it is making up for the season with Kara and Ellen where there were 14 minutes of singing in two hours.
Anyway, the theme for tonight is “Then and Now” – The first song will be post 2000, and the second is…Soul Train? Should be interesting.
The theme is: Songs from the last 2.4 years, a.k.a. the covert mission to prevent Hollie from singing any Celine Dion this week. Nice work on that Uncle Nigel! The kids are singing their performance, plus doing either a duet or trio. Gotta fill this two-hour time slot with something, huh? I can’t complain, at least they are filling it with more singing rather than product placement for something.
It’s 80’s night! I have been waiting for this for a long time…great decade for music (although Steven acknowledged he wasn’t very present during that decade!)
