Scott MacIntyre of 'American Idol'
Singer: SCOTT MACINTYRE
Song: "Keep the Faith"
Monkeys As Critics' Take: God, I would have loved for a Scott clip package that never mentioned his blindness. If he's trying not to be defined by his handicap, he's doing it wrong. Now this is a safe song choice. Sitting behind his piano, Scott starts off warbling and unsteady, looking for the melody. He does get better in the middle, as the background music nearly overwhelms him and drowns out the piano entirely, until a shrill falsetto that did little for me. Behind him, the crowd is waving their arms and swaying along. The crowd is enthusiastic far out of proportion to the performance.
Bob & Carol & Ted & Simon Say: Kara's glad we've gotten to see him with the piano and she likes that he stayed on message. This is pathetic. She admits it wasn't a dynamic performance, but she loved it anyway (because he's blind). Paula thought it was beautiful and magical and lovely (because he's blind). Simon hated the song because nobody knows it. "He's fine being artistic, just not on this show," Simon proclaims. Here's the deal for Randy... He thought the performance was good (because he's blind), but he thought it was safe.
