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.....
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
I needed to hear more. James Kenney performed "Russian Roulette" by Rihanna on X Factor last night.
Nicole Sherzinger picked a hard song but James was killing it...but to only hear a minute of it? Hard to judge.
I think he made it but I needed more. Way too short.
What do you think of his version of the Rihanna jam?-DocFB
Diagnosis: Shorter than roulette in Vegas
Covering Prince is not the easiest thing to do, but Stacy Francis covered "Purple Rain" on X Factor pleasantly last night.
Nicole Sherzinger picked this song for Stacy, which was a ballsy call because, as I said, it is hard to cover Prince. She brought it. She has the vocals and in some places, she used her voice where it wasn't exactly needed, but it was great.
Many have tried to cover "Purple Rain" and failed. Badly. Yes, Leann Rimes, I'm talking about you. Stacy is on to the next round. No. Doubt. About. It.
Stacy Francis gets the funk pass.
Let's see; A Prince wannabe in the first few rounds of X Factor. A former protegé auditioned. Now, Stacy Francis covers "Purple Rain" by Prince. 3 Princely things in 4 weeks. I am saying it again. I will be surprised if we do not see Prince on X Factor sometime during this season. & he knows it, I don't know Y.-DocFB
Diagnosis: She Can Guide Me Anywhere...For A Few Hours....
Dexter Haywood channeled his inner Mick Jagger instead of James Brown this time for "Crazy In Love" by Beyonce on X Factor.
Nicole Sherzinger picked "Crazy In Love" by Beyonce for Dexter and I think it was not the best choice. Enrique Iglesias seemed confused by it.
Man, to see Dexter cry at the end was hard and heartbreaking. I really felt that Nicole did not pick the best song for him and on that, I hope he passes to the next round.
What did you think of Dexter's perfomance?-DocFB
Diagnosis: Not Crazy In Love With Performance But Deserves 1 More Chance
Here is "Dirty Dancer", the latest video from Enrique Iglesias featuring Usher & Lil Wayne.
whomever the dancer is in the video, she is quite flexible. Enrique's reactions are priceless.
Credit expired? Ahh. Another reason I don't go to strip clubs.-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: He Needs To Get Some Mo' Credit
It's taking a woman to fill Enrique Igelsias's shoes. Nicki Minaj is in serious talks to be the opening act for Britney Spear's upcoming tour.
A tour called the "Femme Fatale" tour should have an opening act be a woman, don't you think?
Minaj is currently opening up for Lil Wayne on his "I Am Still Music" tour, which closes May 1st.
Look for an official announcement around that time.-DrFB
Diagnosis: Too Much Booty On This Tour
Enrique Iglesias was announced yesterday as the opening act for Britney Spears upcoming tour.....and today...he backed out. The reason? His ego couldn't handle being her opening act.
Enrique wanted equal billing with Britney as to be co-headliners. My understanding of a co-headliner is sometimes Britney would be the first act. That would not be happening. The agreement was being worked on for weeks with the understanding of the co-headliner.
When it was announced on Good Morning America yesterday, it was made obvious to everyone that Enrique was the supporting act. So, he dropped out. Big mistake.
Britney's last tour in 2009 generated $131 million dollars in revenue and we also heard that Enriwue was going to be paid quite a pretty penny....not pesos.
Plus, Enrique could have been upstaging her every night as he actually sings. Britney does something..not sure how live it is though.
The Britney tour will kick off in Sacramento, California June 17th. No replacement act has been named for Enrique yet.-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: Not Britney's Hero
