I know, it's been back for awhile now, but that's not what I mean.
I took the last year off after watching the first three years because I thought the talent was declining with each passing year. In fact, I even began to wonder if they had already flushed out the best nobodies.
But this year, is an outstanding showcase of some real good talent. From my standpoint, it is the best group ever. And, if you haven't seen it this year because you were beginning to feel the way I did, you owe it to yourself to check it out. These kids are great.
Last night, all but one was worthy of moving on to the next round. And two really stood out. One was Mandisa and the other was Chris Daughtry. It was 50s Night and Chris took a huge risk in taking Johnny Cash's, "I Walk The Line" and molded into an alternative song. And, he did it masterfully. I am not a big altenative fan as a rule, but he did it so well, I think he could release the song tomorrow and be a hit. As for Mandisa? She's awesome, both with vocals, performance, and appeal.
The rest are pretty darned good too. You have to be to get to this level. But someone has to go tonight, I predict it will be Bucky.
