Casey, your rendition of Shania Twain’s “Don’t” was so impressive that Blake says it sounded like it had been written specifically for you!
Hot damn! HollywoodLife.com’s very own American Idol judge, Blake Lewis, has some high praise for sexy rocker Casey James this week! “This song sounded like it was written just for him!” the 28-year-old season six runner-up says. “He should look into recording this for his album!”
We totally agree! Check out what else Blake had to say about the April 27 episode here!
Highlight #1: Shania Twain! This woman is beautiful, intelligent and a passionate performer/songwriter. I was really surprised at how many amazing songs she has written, and also that it would make such a great night for American Idol. Nice!
Highlight #2: Michael Lynche sang “It Only Hurts When I’m Breathing.” Though a little dramatic, he is really the pro on this show, and every week I look forward to what he is going to do. He has such a great range! He can pretty much do anything. I was in the audience this time, and I gave him a standing O. I think I was more excited to be there in person though.
Highlight #3: Crystal Bowersox did a nice bluegrass version of “No One Needs To Know.” She brought the band down to the stage, and the arrangement was sweet and simple. The dual harmonies were perfect, and I felt once again that this girl consistently knows what to do every week to stay true to herself.
Highlight 4: Casey James got my vote tonight for his version of “Don’t.” I was sitting right in front of him when he sang, and this song sounded like it was written just for him. He should look into recording it for his album.
Lowlight: I’m over the hype about Siobahn Magnus. In all her performances there is a highlight, but the performance as a whole is never outstanding. For example, the ending of “Any Man of Mine” tonight was amazing, but the start of the song wasn’t. Since she killed it in the end though, that’s what America will respond to.
I think this was one of the best shows this season. What do you guys think?
