I don't know about you, but Ace Young has been one of my favorites this year on American Idol. His abilities with falsetto set him apart, and when I heard that this week was going to be the music of Queen, not only was I excited, but I thought - wow - Ace will surely pick a great song for his voice.
Then I tuned in to Tuesday night's broadcast (actually via my DVR'd version, where I can fast forward and rewind as needed - ah - such a lovely luxury!) and heard him give a so-so rocker version (so not his style) of We Will Rock You. I was SO DISAPPOINTED.
Now, I am afraid that my sweet, handsome, talented Ace may have signed his ticket home! I hope I am wrong! I really thought he should have chosen the song Kellie Pickler chose - Bohemian Rhapsody (which she totally did awesome on!). It would have been more fitting to his voice and style, in my opinion. Perhaps it was already taken, however, there are dozens of other options that would have fit more than We Will Rock You.
What do you think? Do you think Ace chose poorly? What about everyone else? My guess for bottom three would be Bucky, Ace, and Katharine. I don't think Katharine was bad, but I think people may be thinking she is a bit too theatrical.
I think the bottom two will be Ace and Bucky, and I would prefer to see Bucky go (though he is a NC boy). I like Bucky's sound, but he does not know how to enunciate. I have tried to understand the lyrics when he sings, but his accent comes through too much. It is something he can learn to overcome.
Both Kellie and Bucky totally sound like the people I grew up with! LOL - I never had that thick of an accent - I swear! I about threw myself off the couch when Kellie said she did not have an accent! But seriously, for me, I worked in call centers. People would ask where we were located, and when I would say where, they would ask where my southern accent was. But then again, my husband fell in love with me for my accent (well other things too, lol).
But I digress - on with your opinions! What did you think about Ace and the other contestants for the Queen Music week?
