Relive all of Wednesday night's dreadful performances for the 'Idol' men in gallery form
Tim Urban of 'American Idol' performs
Singer: Tim Urban
Monkeys As Critics' Take: If this were 1976, Tim Urban would be the man to beat in this competition. He's like the popular kid from the old "Hardy Boys" series. Early in the song, when it's all the same note, he isn't too too bad, but his falsetto is AWFUL. Like "Who the heck would tell you you were capable of doing that?" bad. Like "Worse than Matt Giraud's horrible falsetto" bad. So either the teenage girls are gonna swoon over this guy, or he's done. That made Jermaine look good. That was brutally bad.
Ellen, Randy, Kara and Simon Say: Simon congratulates Tim for coming back, but tells Tim that they made the right decision in booting him in the first place. Simon says he looks good, but he'll only make it through because people feel sorry for him. Kara says the music overpowered him, but that he's "likable, cute and current." Kara hopes he goes forward. Randy points out that Tim doesn't have the falsetto he tried, but that it was all wrong. Ellen says he's adorable and that people will vote for him because he's adorable. Tim looks as chagrined as I've ever seen an "Idol" contestant know. Ryan asks Tim to defend himself. Tim protests that the song was a last-minute switch and that it was probably the wrong song.
