Relive the best (Big Mike, Lee) and worst (Jermaine, Tim) of Tuesday's 'Idol' performances from the Top 10 Men
Tim Urban of 'American Idol' performs
Singer: Tim Urban
Song: "Whenever You Breathe Out, I Breathe In"
Monkeys As Critics' Take: Tim loves to pray before performances. Last week, though, God didn't listen to those prayers, at least not musically. This week? Well, it may not matter. Tim Urban just doesn't have a very good voice. With a guitar he's improved the very slightest bit from last week, but that's only because he doesn't do any of the dreadful falsetto. He just has no tone, minimal pitch and no warmth to his voice. He's just not in the league that this show requires. Not in any way. I can't be bothered to critique him. If you leave out singing, stage presence, charisma and intangibles, Tim Urban is a star.
Randy, Ellen Kara and Simon Say: Randy didn't really get it, calling it "very karaoke." "If you were on 'Glee' and all of a sudden we heard you sing as well as act..." Ellen says, before telling him that he has no charisma or stage presence. Kara liked the song choice and gets cheers. "But you didn't make it your own and it's just frustrating with you, because you look the part and you play the part, but it's just not all there yet," Kara says. Kara still wants to see Tim next week. Simon calls it a marked improvement on last week. You know what? Because Tim listened to the criticism. Simon is impressed by Tim's attitude and work ethnic.
