I'm not angry I'm disappointed  
I was worried when I herd this weeks theme was going to be The Rolling Stones as these people are young and ignorant, if you are one of those ignorant young people The Rolling Stones are a seminal rock band who made and continue to make some of histories greatest rock songs. They also look like Muppet's that are made of leather.

First cab off the rank is Wes, minus the stupid hat but wearing a very ill fitting brown leather jacket and a bandanna tied around he's neck making him look like a 1950's school girl who is hiding a hickey. I have to say I'm a bit disappointed in his song choice of Jumping Jack Flash, for a cool rock dude who knows all about music this choice seems a bit obvious. His performance was quite good. He used the stage well and his Mick Jagger style dance moves were entertaining but in giving a good physical performance his voice suffered and the final product was a bit irritating.

Roshani is next and to dust off an old chestnut "I'm not angry, I'm just disappointed" (now anyone who has been at the receiving end of this comment knows that this hurts way more than someone being mad at you.). She did Wild Horses possibly my favorite Stones song so it really pissed me off when Marsha said she didn't know this song and REALLY pissed me off when Kyle blamed the song and not her terrible singing. She just sucked all of the life and emotion out of this song, there were far too many vocal acrobatics for a song that is sung so straight forward. Contrary to what the judges said I think a lot of people know and love Wild Horses and it is a song that I think means a lot to a lot of people and her making it into a dogs breakfast was what got her eliminated. I had a lot of faith in Roshani and I'm too disappointed in her to be angry about her ruining on of my favorite songs. This was a real shame. *Shakes head in disappointment*

Luke's up and he's doing Honky Tonk Woman. I've grown to like Luke as a man but unfortunately not as a singer. I thought Honky Tonk Woman would have been a good choice to go with his slightly hillbilly nature. The opening is promising as my dad would say "The band is smoking". The good thing about this performance is that it clenched my "Fever for more cowbell", the bad thing about this performance is that it made me remember why I was so anti-Luke in the first place, but absolutely not his worst week.

Filthy Teale has gone too far this week. First he says how much he loves The Rolling Stones and then goes and picks You Can't Always Get What You Want like it's the ONLY Stones song he knows. Second you CAN NOT cut down 7:30 minute epic about how shitty life can be into a 1:44 minute piss weak acoustic wuss rock telling the audience to "sing it". FT needs to piss off.

Chrislyn is doing the perfect song for her. The rocking Get Off Of My Cloud, this is the prefect mix of rock and blues and she is strutting around like she is Mick Jagger. This was one of her best performances yet. You go girl, sista girlfriend moon!

Last is Mark going my least favorite Stones song Angie. Mark has annoyed me i saying that he is a bigger Beatles fan than he is a Rolling Stones fan like it's some kind of East Coast, West Coast rap battle between fans when everyone I know is an equal and huge fan of both. My annoyance at this comment aside Mark delivers the best performance of the night with a striped back acoustic, highly emotional performance with a sob story to boot.

The performances this week were that the ones who were good were really good, the ones who were shit were really shit and the rest were mediocre, so this grade evens out to a C.

See you next week for what should be at least an interesting show for Michael Jackson week.

Good review, I agree with you 100% about Roshani, but you already know that. Marcia not knowing Wild Horses made me want to throw stuff at the TV.

I still didn't mind teale, sorry.

Chrislyn should just win the thing now, girl is amazing.

You don't like Angie? Really? I do.

I agree that Jacko week should be interesting, my prediction is that someone will definitely do Billie Jean, maybe Teale or Wes.
