Anytime I can use a John Byrne comic book piece to promote a story, I am all about it. This time, it is for Christian Bail's "Dark Knight" audition!
Bale is in Val Kilmer's batman suit for the audition. It doesn't look right on Christian does it?
This will be released as a bonus on the upcoming “The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector’s Edition” box set.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Affleck will be just fine....
I kind of cringed when I heard the opening words to "No Diggity" by Blackstreet on X Factor by Tiah Tolliver.
Her vocal delivery at the end may have saved her and proved Simon Cowell right for fighting the other judged to keep her.
I think Simon is going to keep her into the next round. The reason? Pride. he fought for this girl and if he eliminates her now, it proves the other judged right for now keeping her.
So for now, it is "diggity" for Tiah we think. Agree?-DocFB
Diagnosis: Didn't like the way she worked it til the end....
Melanie Amaro covered "Will You Be There" by Michael Jackson on X Factor.
I was not sure about the song selection by Simon Cowell at first, but again, he chose the right song and she nailed it.
Simon I think has the hardest decisions to make as his group appears to be the most talented.
So far, Simon and Nicole are picking the best songs for their groups. Tuesday night is gonna be crazy with eliminations coming up.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Simon Says......
Marcus Canty was not given exactly a great song by L.A. Reid on X Factor, but he did the best with what he had.
The song "All My Life" by K.C. & JoJo (Note to X Factor site, it is NOT Casey & Jojo) was performed by Marcus in front of Rihanna and L.A. Reid.
He sang it better than K.C. & Jojo could and did. Marcus seemed more intimidated by Reid than Rihanna. Interesting.
We liked it but still did not like song choice.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Wonder if Reid will pick "Freak n u" next by Jodeci
Chris Rene performed "Everyday People" on x Factor last night.
Now, although credited to Sly & The Family Stone on the X Factor site, but it is closer to the version by Arrested Development back in the 90's.
L.A. Reid made a good song selection for Chris and it seemed to impress Rihanna.
I loved how Rihanna clowned Reid's dress attire. Back to the performance, I think it was good enough to make it to the next round.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Speach more than Sly
10 members equals ten times the InTENsity, right? Maybe, but not sure for X Factor.
The performance of "That's Not My Name" by The Ting Tings is good but with 10 members, I am not really sure how far they are going to get when it is everyone competiting and not just bands.
Right now, this performance is one of the most watched auditions but just because it is the most popular, does not mean it is the best.
Paula Abdul and Pharrell have a big decision to make and although it might be inTENse, I am not sure the group is going to like her answer.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Yes, actually, that is my name....
Leroy Bell covered Adele's version of "Make You Feel My Love" written by Bob Dylan on X Factor.
Bell is 60 years old and it is hard to believe he has yet to ever be signed to a label with a voice as soulful as his.
It's pure. It's soulful. It's beautiful. He looks good for 60 I must say.
Nicole Sherzinger is really picking the right songs. L.A. Reid could learn something from her. Just saying.-DocFB
Diagnosis: We feel it.....
Jazzlyn Little did not blow me away with her version of "I Will Survive" on X Factor last night.
I'm not sure if it was a bad song choice by Simon. He felt that she had the powerful voice for that song, and this time....it was just average.
What do you think of Jazzlyn's performance?
Diagnosis: We Hope She Does Survive To The Next Round
Nicole Sherzinger again impressed me with her song choice for Josh Krajcik on X Factor.
Krajcik performed "First Time I Ever Saw Your Face" by Roberta Flack with Nicole and Enrique Iglesias watching on.
He still reminds me of Joe Cocker with his vocal delivery and power. One of our favorite auditions so far.
What do you think?-DocFB
Diagnosis: Making His Daughter Proud
