All I have to say for now is that Alex and Mikalah should both be voted off at the same time. Honestly, terrible!

I agree with Bill G.! My wife watches AI and I so I catch bits and pieces. There are sooo many great songs from the 60's and early 70's. The panelists are always bitchin' about the performers "playing it safe", so why don't they wise up and knock off the Neil Sedaka/Dionne Warwick/crap. There are plenty songs by the legends of rock. How about belting out "Gimme Shelter, or a good Allman Bros. blues song. Give "Layla" a shot! The girls need to let loose with some Janice Joplin or Chrissy Hynde and stop trying to sound like Aretha or Whitney Houston...

I was thinking about all the great 60s songs too and wondering why more interesting songs weren't picked. Things like Aaron Neville's "Tell It Like It Is" or Lesley Gore's "You Don't Own Me" -- both of those songs sound just as fresh today as they did 40 years ago.

I like the show, and I've watched from the begining, but I've always found song selection odd. The cynic in me thinks it has to do with the producers relationship with BMG.

There is an approved songlist that the singers must pick from. It only has the songs that the producers are licensed to use, and from what I understand, it's rather limited. That's why, if you've watched from the beginning, you hear the same songs over and over - there's only so many songs on the list that can really show off what a singer can do, and they tend to get picked over and over...and over....
