Scott MacIntyre of 'American Idol'
Singer: SCOTT MACINTYRE
Song: "The Search Is Over"
Monkeys As Critics' Take: Uh-oh. Somebody punked Scott and sent him out on the stage with a guitar instead of a piano. For a while, he stands confused, arms limply at his side. Then, when the music gets very loud, he moves his fingers around the guitar either pretending to play it, or at least confident that if he's playing badly, nobody will notice. Nobody notices anything that Scott actually does in this competition. He doesn't have nearly the voice to pull off this sort of guitar rock ballad. He doesn't come close to hitting the high notes. Any of them.
Harpo, Chico, Zeppo and Simon Say: Kara commends Scott for playing his guitar, saying he had good moments and bad moments. Ah, the coddling. Paula also gives him credit for leaving the piano aside and gives him a "bravo," even though she says some of the high notes sounded screechy. Simon says the song was atrocious and the guitar playing wasn't better. Randy says it was all just OK.
