Jeanine Vailes of 'American Idol'
Singer: JEANINE VAILES
Song: "This Love"
Monkeys as Critics Take: I have no memory at all of Jeanine. None. That means I don't have any expectations for her and that she can't let me down. And that's the nicest thing I have to say about her performance. She stumbles over the Maroon Five rhythms and basically lets the background singers handle the chorus for her. Perhaps to compensate, she oversings every other bit of the song. She shouts. She inserts runs. She shrieks. She does her own thing to avoid the melody. She nails the last note, but the performance is all gimmick.
John, Paul, George and Simon Say: Paula begins by raving about Jeanine's legs. That's it. Nothing else. Then she passes the baton to Simon, who calls it "terrible." This is the third straight wrong song for the night. He also likes her likes. The camera pans up. Randy throws in his one cent on the legs. At Simon's suggestion, Kara praises her lips, then calls it overdone. Jeanine protests that because she's been under-the-radar, she had to come out big. Kara quickly responds, "That's over-compensating." Ryan continues the talk about her legs.
