According to “Keithy”, she sounds like a mix of Carrie Underwood and Gwen Stefani (both of them are vomiting a little in their mouths a little with that comparison). Steph makes it through as well, over Nicki’s objections.
Montage of people used to highlight Nicki’s and Mariah’s “feud”. Please, the only thing these two actually fight over is the last slice of cheesecake on the craft table. If you read between the lines, you see that these two ladies actually respect each other, but I assume they both had “required to provide drama at the judges’ table in order to keep ratings high” clauses in their multi-million dollar contracts. Keith’s version of “Stuck in the Middle with You” plays annoyingly in the background.
Melissa Bush, a massage therapist/student from Michigan, sings worse than she is dressed. It’s a pity party up in here.
BTW, Mariah’s high as well as drunk. She slurs her words, her eyes wander to her cue cards, even her nose can’t stay on her face straight.
Luckily, the next guy brings in delicious treats for them since he and his mom are bakers. Gabe Brown impresses them with his pipe strength on “Gimme Shelter”. Nicki even opens her eyes all the way. He grabs a ticket after screaming his way through “We All Die Young.”
Kevin Nabity, Napoleon Dynamite’s half-brother, sucks at singing and is not much better at ninja-ing.
and leads into a montage of suckage … with lots of tears and judge hugs.
The next contestant, Isabel Perrell, is a fifteen-year-old who is dressed like Cody Brown’s fifth wife but has the best voice so far. She’s a little too precocious for my taste — asking Keith to duet with her, displaying too much confidence for a young insecure female, “handling the judges”, etc. — but she is amazingly talented.
Keith has to leave for the rest of the day for some
Brazilian botox Vegas concert, but Nicki and her hormones steal the show throughout a flirt-laced montage. Then we get to see Griffin, who is easy on Nicki’s eyes and is even easier on her ears. “G” gets through.
Curtis Finch, Jr., from St. Louis, is 24, and a nicely-grounded, young, black, gay man who sings a gospel song so well, he does something no one else has this whole episode can. He makes the judges SHUT UP!
