Scott MacIntyre of 'American Idol'
Singer: SCOTT MACINTYRE
Song: "Mandolin Rain"
Monkeys As Critics' Take: A Bruce Hornsby song? Interesting. Scott is a great story, but his voice is a bit too slight and unsteady for me. I like him more without the piano than what we saw from Hollywood. He's better on the big notes than the little notes. Y'all don't know this, but if you'd seen the Bobcat Goldthwait-directed Sundance film "World's Worst Dad," this is absolutely hilarious.
Pestilence, Famine, War and Simon Say: Check it out... You know what's amazing about Scott? This wasn't the most perfect vocal for Randy, but the parts that were great were great for Randy. You know what he loves? He loves that he can pretend to feel Scott's emotion (because he's blind). Kara says Scott moves mountains and he's passionate and it comes from his heart (because he's blind). Paula also celebrates him as a blessing (because he's blind). Good gracious, y'all. None of this has a thing to do with his freaking voice. Simon wasn't crazy about the song, but Scott is growing on him. Simon says he's memorable in a sea of forgettable people and that he'll be amazed if Scott doesn't sail through (because he's blind). Ryan and Scott reprise their blind high-five. Me, I'm feeling bad for Ju'Not, who's a far superior singer to Scott, but all he's got going for him is his cute son and he had to go and leave the kid at home. Darnit, Ju'Not, next time bring a prop!
