KRIS FOR THE FINAL! I'm so impressed with him tonight.
I agree with this article.'One' is a song with beautiful sad lyrics & tune. I wanted Adam to sing it simply and with his heart like he did with Tracks of my Tears. Should I be blaming Simon, not Adam? It did not engage the audience enough. Maybe the studio version will be okay. I do love the lyrics to that song.
The other two had bad songs for the judges' choices. Kris' song 'Apologize' was a bit out of his range although not a terrible choice. I liked his version, I liked it with less instrumentation than the original, just the piano. You are right that he should have looked at the camera more. And the camera should have done more close-ups on Kris' face instead of doing long-shots of his back (we don't care about his back!). The piano sounded great but perhaps it hindered Kris' ability to engage with the audience emotionally.
Kris nailed a brave song choice,'Heartless'. It was a bit desperate, a bit depressed, a bit broken, a bit sexy, a bit dark, a bit assertive. I was a bit confused when nice-guy Kris sang the line, "you need to watch the way you talking to me, yo".
