Relive the best (Big Mike, Lee) and worst (Jermaine, Tim) of Tuesday's 'Idol' performances from the Top 10 Men
John Park of 'American Idol' performs
Singer: John Park
Monkeys As Critics' Take: English is John Park's second language. But how much can he bench? Too many John Mayer jokes to be made. John Park is making none of them. He is, in fact, almost life-suckingly serious. He's giving one of those performances where the singer perches on a stool and barely opens his eyes. John, John, John. You need to loosen up. Just a little? I mean, you have a good voice. But so very little personality.
Randy, Ellen Kara and Simon Say: Yo yo. Randy is disappointed John didn't bring anything new or spicy to the song. Like kim chi, Randy? Xenophobe. Ellen isn't feeling that John felt it enough. But Ellen, his EYES WERE CLOSED. What more do you want? Kara thought it was better than last week, but she still isn't believing him. She wants him to take some risks. "I think Purple Haze may get their lead singer back," Simon says, calling it a "So what?" performance, one that will be forgotten within 20 minutes. Because this show is two hours for 10 performances, that's plenty of time for the judges to blather. They make their comments. Then John gets to respond. Then they get to recomment.
