Lilly Scott of 'American Idol' preforms
Singer: Lilly Scott
Song: "I Fall to Pieces"
Monkeys As Critics' Take: I've had Lilly and Crystal in their own tier for the first two weeks, with Siobhan getting closer and now joining them. I'm not exactly sure that Lilly's whole ensemble comes together here. There's a mixture of cutesy and attempted emotionality that doesn't gel. It comes surprisingly close. And the vocal, while interestingly and affectedly nasally, doesn't quite reach high enough. I think the problem here is just Lilly going right after Crystal on this particular night. One looked like a polished pro, ever improving. The other continues to be a watchable, sometimes excellent enigma. I dig the cute little mandolin.
Randy, Ellen, Karen and Simon Say: Randy and Ellen love it. KAra praises Lilly for making Patsy Cline feel current. Since when has Patsy Cline had problems for current audiences. Simon thinks Lilly is brave and warns her that while it was good and quirky, it lacked the "Wow" factor.
