American Idol Recap: Lakisha Jones, Melinda Doolittle Lead the Way

by at . Comments

Before we get to the actual talent behind this season's American Idol, let us say this: Antonella Barba did not suck last night.

And that's not even a reference to her infamous blowjob pictures. Seriously, it's not.

The New Jersey native sang a decent rendition on last night's show - but she's simply surrounded by too many talented artists to remain past this evening's vote off. At least that's what we assume. And it's what Simon Cowell pointedly said. But you never know.

Anyway, the two best women didn't disappoint - although one of them may have increased her lead by a sizeable margin. Melinda Doolittle was downright amazing as she sung "I'm a Woman" by Peggy Lee. The only thing more impressive than her vocal ability is her constantly grateful, embarrassed expression every time the judges throw a compliment her way.

Meanwhile, Lakisha Jones sang perfectly well. She chose a Whitney Houston song and actually sounded just like the diva on stage. The only drawback in that?

Somewhere, Bobby Brown is thinking about breaking parole in order to meet Lakisha. Look out, woman!

"The Voice" I'm a middle aged engineer who doesn't get into this stuff. Ever. But I am so smitten with her singing that I am going to push for her to be known by a new name: "The Voice".

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
