    Girl sang mama's song on Idol (she got through)

    When she told the judges her song choice Keith said "good song" They liked it but asked for a 2nd song and she sang Superbass by Nikki..the girl is versatile lol. I'm glad she got through

    I honestly don't think she was very good. I was shocked they let her through. Her and one other guy (who had a good voice, but looked like he was going to pee himself). Those two were SO not ready for this. But then they didn't let through the guy who had lost a leg, who I thought was WAY better than either of the other two.

    This girl, IMO, sounded much better rapping than she did singing.

    This girl wasn't very good, IMO. I was expecting a lot better, based on the hype I saw on Twitter. LOL.

    Mariah and Keith seem to have potential as judges; Nicki is annoying as hell, and Randy is useless.

    Yeah, I agree. The amputee had a far superior voice to this girl.

    When a certain style of music is so far out of someone's wheelhouse -- like country is for Mariah, Randy and Nicki -- they think they're hearing better work than they really are. They weren't qualified to tell this girl that she would be a big hit in country. Keith was trying to offer up some reality but their enthusiasm squashed him down. I wish he had stood his ground because I don't want to see a pile of mediocre country singers put through because the other three know @#$% all about country music. And she was that -- mediocre. Painfully so.

    Eh.. she wasn't very good. Her Mama's Song sounded off. She sounded so much better rapping Superbass.

    Thank God for Keith Urban. I thought I was alone lol.

    You know what's really funny? The opening "Mama" lyric was in the melody and phrasing of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody. That was Freddie Mercury's "Mamaaaa...", not Carrie Underwood's.

    Oh thank god we agree. I thought I was going to come to this thread and be a total downer.
    That was not "Carrie Good". She has tone, yes, but boy does she wander off pitch.
    The chorus of MS went completely out of key but none of the judges knew it well enough (except Keith and he was trying to be nice) to even recognize it.
    She does have tone though. But I agree with those who feel, if you didn't lt the guy through with the amputated leg, than this girl surely should not have gone through.
    And if she made it to Hollywood (which is not that big a deal) than the guy should have easily.
    He made a mistake with his first song, yes, but saved himself with "Wanted......".
    Oh well. This is what the judges do. Tehy lead us along like cattle who are too tone deaf to recognize anything but what they say. Wrong!

    Wow... sorry... but that was off...
    It's true that Keith was the only one who knew the song and knows that...
    Or probably Randy too... He did ask her to sing another song which means he didn't buy her Mama's Song...
    Oh well... they would probably be more strict in the other rounds..
    But you got to give it to the girl, she does have some tone... But she shouldn't have chosen MS for the auditions...
    Also, this goes to show how difficult of a song MS is...

    BTW... she sang wrong lyrics in the second line

    She's a good rapper, singer, not so much. She sang Mama's Song in at least 3 different keys.

    Maybe someone else will sing Carrie tonight..I remember that Randy went to one of Carrie's concerts to tell a girl she could audition, so we have that to look forward to eventually during the auditions. I would also really love if she was a mentor this season.
