James gets a pass, Lauren gets a rewrite, Haley gets SQUAT

OK, this time I agree with them about James' pitch issues and lower notes getting drowned out. He does not support his notes correctly. And this is working when he's supposed to be a little sweet, but when he's supposed to be intense, the intensity is not there.

How can you be low, soft, and intense at the same time? For a non-singing example, look at Alan Rickman in pretty much anything he's done. He's mastered "quietly intense." Seriously, that's how you do it musically, too. It's in using your diaphragm to support your voice and using your acting to sell it.

If James doesn't figure this out, his voice will be trashed by the time he's 25.

Lauren has basically gotten the wrong advice from Jimmy all along, and she's gone along with it, because she's not a strong enough person to buck what he's doing to her. He's groomed her into a great karaoke singer. It's too bad, really.

Scotty has done his own thing, with results ranging from really good to good karaoke country.

I have enjoyed watching Haley grow, despite getting literally NO HELP from anyone, save probably Casey. I always liked her voice and what she could do with it (although, like Casey, a little less growling would be an improvement), but at first, she didn't know what to do with herself on stage, and she didn't interpret the lyrics she was singing. Now, she's the best thing they've got.

I hope the fans are smarter than the judges and producers, and can get past who they're pimping to see who's really worth going to see in concert and who's album will be worth buying.

SAVE THE GROWLER!!

We are in accord. Go figure!

I've been thinking of you as I work through a number of Julien/Gerard passages. ;-)

Looks like she survived one more week AND there WILL be a woman in the finale!
