This week “Duets” aired on a special date and time to make room for the basketball championship games. The theme for this week is “Party Songs”.
First up is last week’s survivor Jason Farol. Jason is hoping to avoid being put in the bottom two for the third week in a row. Jason and Kelly performed the Rolling Stones hit “Satisfaction”. Jennifer and Robin said it was Jason’s best performance and John said it was Jason’s most effective performance vocally; adding that he could see progress from last week.
Bridgette Carrington andperformed a tribute to the late Donna summer with “Last Dance”. Kelly loved the ending; adding Bridgette made it fun. Jennifer loved where Bridgette took the song. Robin noted that Bridgette had passion when she sang but wanted to see more fun from her.
The leader for the first two weeks J Rome andperformed the hit “PYT” – Pretty Young Thing. Kelly said J Rome is her favourite singer in the competition but felt J Rome channeled a little too much of Jackson in his performance. Robin said that J Rome belongs on the stage; adding the show is just a stepping stone for J Rome. John called J Rome awesome; adding that J Rome will continue to be awesome. After the performance J Rome again found himself at the top of the leader board. Would he remain there when the night’s performances were over?
After the elimination last week, Robin’s only remaining singer Olivia Chisholm performed thehit “Let’s Stay Together” with Robin. John said Olivia sounded smooth but needed to show more strength in her performance. Kelly noted Olivia’s amazing breath control and Jennifer noted that Olivia has shown diversity but wanted to see more energy.
Jordan Meredith andperformed the hit “I Love Rock and Roll”. Jennifer said that she could feel the reserve and nervousness in Jordan’s performance but loved the arrangement of the song. Robin didn’t feel the angst of rock and missed the sultriness from Jordan. John said the chorus felt a little weird being sung in harmony.
Meleana Brown and John had a surprise for one of his fellow stars – they were going to perform one of the superstars’ songs. Meleana and John took on Kelly’s “Since You’ve Been Gone”. Kelly loved it. Jennifer noted the performance had energy and thought it was great. Robin said he was, “swimming in a barrel of emotion;” adding that Meleana came out of her shell and was impressed.
The last solo performance of the night was from John Glosson and Jennifer with “Life is a Highway”. Kelly thought it was a perfect song choice. Robin noted that with a voice like John’s he didn’t need to worry about dancing and moving around the stage. John calling himself the mic police cautioned John on pulling the mic away from his face.
With Meleana and Olvia as the two singers in the bottom, the pair would have to perform a solo a’ cappella in the final showdown before one of them would be eliminated. Robin saw one of his singers be the first one eliminated and risked losing the second one when Olivia found herself in the bottom two. Meleana performed first singing “Saving All My Love” by Whitney Houston. Olivia performed thehit “I Can’t Make You Love Me”.
After marking their scores the singer eliminated from the competition was…
