Matt Goes With Coldplay

Matt Giraud, “Vida la Vida”: 13
So remember what I told you about contestants ruining their chances by picking a current song? Wow, that was a huge risk and it did not pay off at all. I understand that he was trying to do something different, but that song is not meant to be sung that way. And since it’s a familiar song to people, they know that. I think we may have just crossed one of the favorite guys off the list.

Kudos, though, to Coldplay for clearing the song.

And is this what Simon meant by “fairness”? They’re going to take turns? BOO HISS! Simon should always go last…
