IF she sings another Whitney standard this week, I will be throwing all my votes to Candice.

This. Stale, uninspired song choices and expected performances. I've never seen her emote appropriately, I look at her and she just seems to be thinking "woohoo, I'm on American Idol!", which they're ALL thinking but I like a bit of depth with those vocal chops.
I'm completely bored by her. I find her really snotty as well. I think that Amber has a good voice, but nothing special to go along with it. She's a pageant/competition type singer.

And Amber did the song no favors. It was a bad base to build on, but she didn't erect anything all that great upon it. The crowd standing O/judge acclaim to me all came off as the typical "Big Sounding Song Gets An Overreaction" thing. Whereas the bones of it, if looked at dispassionately, were weak and uninspired.

"Moooooooment Like Theeeeeese"
I find Amber to be a decent singer (enunciation issues aside), but I agree that something is missing. Perhaps it's a richness that may come with more experience. Maybe her experience on the show and the mentoring will help her to develop her talent a bit.
I agree that the judges over-reacted to that performance - their reaction didn't even seem to match that of the audience.

She looked absolutely gorgeous last night too. She has now become my favorite singer from this season; and I would love to have an album from her the most.
I also thought her "She's Leaving Home" from last week was exceptional.
I don't think she has a chance of winning, as she doesn't seem to have as many fans. Is it because she is so beautiful, slim, tall...plus she has that voice? I believe there is a jealousy factor sometimes when someone seems to have it all; and that is why she doesn't have as many fans. Just my opinion.

I thought she had a beautiful vocal performance in this song and agreed with Keith Urban that she was like a summer breeze in this song. She looked so pretty too in her ice blue jumpsuit.
I also loved her "Love On Top" performance and thought she showed a lot of pizazz, although her vocals were the best on the first performance. I love her ballads the best, but found both of her performances last night delightful.

The raw shrimp confession didn't do her any favors though. Just ugh.

My only thoughts on Amber's cute and silly little opening segment about eating frozen shrimp was that it was sort of cute and silly.

Her stunning vocals and her aura of beautiful elegance made this a wow moment for me. She looked like she could be performing for the First Family at the White House.

For all their fawning over the years for a "package artist," few have possessed both the looks and the talent to pull that off. (Carrie Underwood is the only one I can recall at this point.) I don't think Amber will win, but I can see why Jimmy Iovine is so high on her.
