Then there was Brooke. Who doesn't like Brooke?! I mean she's sweet, she's pretty, she has a pleasant voice and is a musician as well. Of course there's no way in heck she's going to win! I almost dropped my Magic Shell last night when she told the band she needed to start the song over! I could not believe it. Trent and I have watched this show most seasons, and I have NEVER seen any contestant do that during a live performance. I felt so bad for her. But (for ONCE) I think I agreed with Paula--I don't think she should have done that. (Simon and Randy said it was the right thing to do.) You just make it up, hum, or let the band vamp--whatever you have to do to Get. It. Together. Unfortunately, there are times when it is unavoidable and not your decision. Maybe that's why I was so sad for her--I was having flashbacks! My freshman year in college I was starting a song for our big choir while out on tour. The solo led to a trio of tight harmony--I think it was with JJ and Ember. Well, I started the song out on the wrong notes..I was singing the harmonies not the melodies. Our director stopped the band and said quietly to me "Let's try it again, Jen." (Yes, BTW, this is with an audience, and 80 pairs of eyes boring into the back of my head thinking: I should have had that solo!) Then I did it--AGAIN!! She stopped again and looked at JJ, who hummed the right note in my ear. Third time's a charm! Still one of the top 3 (no-4) embarassing moments on stage. Someday I'll elaborate on the other three.
PS: Does anyone know what it up with the spacing on the new blogger template? Double spaced or crammed together--and I don't remember choosing either?
