But yeah, there were some bum notes in Somewhere and One as well. Not enough that to make me not like her performances, but enough to make me a little resentful of the overeffusive praise from the judges.
My husband wouldn't stop commenting during "One" about how awful he thought it was. I wasn't too impressed, either. As for "Somewhere", yeah, I heard the bad notes, too. She was obviously trying to do the Barbra version, in which she really belts out the end, but I found Candice to be a bit screechy. She has the potential to have a big, Barbra-type of voice--I've heard it from time to time during the competition, but I didn't hear it last night. MMV, of course.
I thought Kree showed the most emotion during her second song, but I also felt she hit the notes better on the other two. The second one seemed flat to me and I was surprised that the judges didn't say anything, but I suppose that could've been because of her home-coming package that they'd just watched. It was pretty emotional.
Angie was pretty good. I'd be satisfied with any of the girls winning, but there's something about Kree that I just like--and I can't explain it because I do understand the criticism from others. But, I do want to see her in the finals.
