Last week, after Bridget Carrington and John Legend sang Nat King Cole’s classic, “Unforgettable” on Duets, we predicted that it would be the Virginia native’s final performance on the ABC reality show. Unfortunately for Bridget, we were right. (Sorry B!) Tonight, with the competition down to J Rome, John Glosson, and Jason Farol, superstars Jennifer Nettles and Kelly Clarkson are left to represent for the ladies. Which one will walk away with the win? That, of course, is up to your vote, which will (hopefully) be based partly on tonight’s duets. PLUS, for the first time, the amateurs are hitting the stage to prove that they have what it takes to hold their own as solo artists. How’d they do?Looking mighty fine following his fender bender earlier this week, Robin Thicke and the rest of the superstars kicked off the show with a performance of “Get Ready,” which admittedly had us wishing that at least one of Robin’s amateurs were still in the competition, just so we could see more of him.
On the other hand, Alexis Foster and Olivia Chisholm may have been what was fueling all of the pelvic thrusts and big-headedness, so maybe it’s better that they’re gone.
(Note to Robin Thicke: You’re just as sexy fully clothed!)
With both of her contenders still going strong, Jennifer Nettles returns to the stage with J Rome to sing “Break Even,” which surprisingly, actually works with his voice.
It’s a good performance, but not good enough for Kelly to throw anything at him this time.
Hoping for a little luck, Jason Farol is singing “Me and Mrs. Jones” with Clarkson. Yes, the same song that saved him from elimination a few weeks back.
Jennifer is loving the “yummy little soul singer” in his “skinny Filipino body” that Jason has become throughout the competition (well, we’re pretty sure he was always Filipino), but Robin, not surprisingly, thought the performance was lacking in “naughtiness.” Just when we were starting to
love like him again.
Like a musical Wonder Woman, Jennifer Nettles is back AGAIN with her homeboy, John Glosson, singing “The Prayer.” It was an amazing performance from “Georgia Bocelli,” even if he was slightly off for just one note. (We noticed too, Robin.)
Out to prove that they’ve got what it takes to be solo artists – because no, they can’t perform with their superstars forever – J Rome hits the stage with Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered,” followed by John’s “Bless the Broken Road.”
Jennifer is a proud stage mama watching her guys OWN the stage. But it’s Jason Farol’s “electrifying” version of “Runaway Baby” that brings the house down.
Could he actually win this thing?
