Top 12: Naima Blows a Hot Arrangement

The show begins with the judges and Ryan telling everyone how to contribute to relief efforts in Japan. It’s a nice touch. You can do so by downloading the studio recordings of the songs the contestants do tonight…

Which I would seriously recommend because those things are WAY better so far this year than in seasons past. More on that later…

And if you missed it, yes, the show is live tonight…

Naima Adedapo, “What’s Love Got to Do With It?”: 14
I was thinking that with all of the great songs from 1984, she picks that one that we’ve heard more than once for this theme? But the arrangement from Rodney Jerkins was hot (although the ending was a little weird). She just didn’t hit it. Kudos to JLo for acknowledging that. And now Randy is going back and watching the shows? What has happened to him?

#Tylerism Alert: “You opened up a can of whoop-di-do tonight.”
