Ju'Not Joyner of 'American Idol'
Singer: JU'NOT JOYNER
Song: "Hey There, Delilah"
Monkeys As Critics' Take: There's a difference between Taylor repeating a Hollywood performance we didn't see and Ju'Not repeating a Hollywood performance we actually heard. There's also a difference between being really good and being so-so. Ju'Not is really good, but I hope viewers don't penalize him for having heard a variation on the performance previously. It's controlled, nuanced, connected and given the night's first four singers, it's quite excellent. It's also a reminder that the Judges sent Jamar Rogers, another Plain White Ts performer in Hollywood, packing. Bring him back for the Wild Card, judges!
Pestilence, Famine, War and Simon Say: Ju'not what's really cool about what he just did? Randy appreciated that Ju'Not pulled back. Kara thought it was smooth and fluid, but she wants to see him bust it out next time. Paula thinks that Ju'Not changed the song up after hearing her complaints about Taylor. It was better than Simon thought it would be. Ju'Not's banter with the judges, largely about the cortisone shot he got in his rear, is candid and funny and I'm really liking him right now.
