A good song choice ("If You Don't Know Me By Now" by Simply Red), and Stefano delivered the notes and emotion perfectly. Like Randy would say, "THIS is what's it all about babeee!". Stefano is really a contender and the best part is, he's still a long way from peaking. And hugging his mom at the end of the performance? Genuis! That's worth a few hundred thousand votes at the very least.
It wasn't a perfect rendition of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" but it was genuine with a huge dash of crazy. And dude played the bass! Not a really frontman thing to do, but the risk really paid off.
The arrangement in this case really helped the girl out. Just when I thougt, "aiya, another ballad is it?", the tempo was switched up and Pia got to showcase a slightly different side of her. Didn't like the baju though.
Least Favourite 3
I personally love the song ("Love Will Lead You Back") but again, Miss Congeniality was boring with a capital B. And what the hell was she wearing?
Oh man, sexy's not your game, girl, and the more you pout and gyrate, the more painful it became to watch. Seriously, her voice is not bad at all, but the lack of that crucial X factor would mean not many will find enough reasons to vote for her
Pitchy lah. Didn't like the arrangement as well.
Karen, Haley and Naima to be in the bottom three. Haley to go home.
