Matt Breitzke of 'American Idol'
Singer: MATT BREITZKE
Song: "If You Could Only See"
Monkeys as Critics Take: Matt is a welder like Michael Sarver is an oilrigger, which is to say that it's a personal narrative that we're never going to hear the end of. Matt's a bar band singer and he has a certain control and confidence on the stage. He connects with the camera and with his environment. Vocally, it's OK at best. Nothing in Matt's voice is rock-y or blues-y or soulful. It just hits the notes.
John, Paul, George and Simon Say: Simon likes Matt, but he "absolutely hated that song." He'd have advised a different song choice. Matt disagrees, and not in nice way. Randy also wanted something more exciting, more edge and energy. Can we stop saying we like Matt? What difference does that make? Kara thought it was flat. Paula says every note was in key. Simon asks him if Matt if he still disagrees after hearing the criticism. He does. He's becoming less likable by the second.
