Nashville Star – We’re down to nine . . . Who is staying and who is going home?
Tonight is family night on Nashville Star . . . do we have a theme?
Who’s first to go through?
Ashlee Hewitt is the first to be safe . . . .
Ashlee wants to sing “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey. She and John Rich are talking to her about playing piano and guitar for this number. Sounds like a tall order, but I bet this one can figure it out.
Here she goes on the piano . . . and she’s off the piano and onto the guitar . . . Huge points to Ms. Hewitt for her multiple instrumentation . . . . her voice is still not winning me over, but there’s no denying the girls gives great stage . . .
Jewel – Liked the instruments and the singing, but thinks that she is still way too clinical. Needs to stop thinking.
Jeff – Compares her to Barbara Mandrell . . . I think he was positive . . . not really clear on what else he is saying (channeling his inner Paula Abdul)
John – Thinks she did great and that she is on a slow steady climb to the top of this competition.
Next up, Ashlee croons "Help Me Make it Through the Night" – Much more purely country performance . . . very good steady vocal. Shortened version – perhaps giving them a blip to perform actual country music.
Here’s a thought . . . why don’t they have them sing actual country music during the show . . . . just a thought . . .
