Jessica Sanchez Sweet Dreams

Jessica Sanchez Sweet Dreams, The sing-off on this week’s “American Idol” doubled as a warning – to the viewers. On Wednesday’s show, contestants had to pick a song by the artist they’ve modeled themselves after. In other words, they showcased the style and sound they’ll most likely pursue on CD should they take the prize. Let’s just say, for the most part, it wasn’t a promising tease.
Many performances showed just how far these young singers fall into the shadow of their own idols – including some of the season’s most favored players. Jessica Sanchez owns one of the season’s burliest voices. But her take on a song by her clear role model, Beyonce, showed too much similarity in their timbres and phrasing, making Sanchez’s voice seem redundant. This, despite the fact she switched up the arrangement of the boot****ious song she chose, “Sweet Dreams.”
Likewise, judges’ pet Philip Phillips sounded like a frustrated understudy for Dave Matthews (despite singing a Johnny Lang song, “Still Raining”).
Jason Ledet, who owns the churchiest shout of the season, showed an unfortunate taste for sap by choosing to Mariah Carey kitschy version of “Without You.” It’s gooeyness undermined his gospel brilliance.
Other singers made choices that revealed similarly unfortunate taste. Colton Dixon selected Lifehouse’s sub-grunge ballad, which he murmured through, while Hollie Cavanagh offered a duller xerox of an earlier Idol champ, Carrie Underwood, on her “Jesus Take The Wheel.” Fellow country fan Skylar Laine showed more distinction on Miranda Lambert’s “Gunpowder and Lead,” but she still too closely recalled the original’s spunk.
