Can't we just skip the next two weeks and name Melinda the next America Idol?
Now, I love Jordin, and after last week there was much speculation that she could go all the way now that Lakisha went home. I was disappointed she recycled a number. (Yes, I know Melinda did too, but hers was back before the big stage, and the band.) But as good as Jordin is at 17, homegirl can't hold a candle to Melinda. No if's ands, or buts. When they announced Randy picked Whitney Houston for her to sing, I was like, "It's about time, 'cause if anyone can step up to the mike and handle Whitney, it's her." And she rocked on the Tina Turner, as if that was a surprise. Loved her.
Blake surprised me. Well, that's not true, I know he can sing, but he really was comfortable and performed his numbers well.
It's really close to call tonight, but I think Blake's fan base is going to pull him through. It's him and Melinda in the Finals.
