Seeing it again, I thought Blake was great... better than I thought he was on Tuesday night. That was a great version of a very fun song.
I like that he's not afraid to play with stuff. And not just, "I'm going to country up this R&B song cause that's who I am." Yeah, his version of "Imagine" last week was pretty standard, but we've all heard that song a million times and there's no way to make it mean anything anymore.
I'm not sure why the judges were calling Blake's performance a 'risk'. It was fun and somewhat innovative. Good energy. Sure, people love the song, but it's a party song by a Jersey hair band, not The Gospel of John. So playing with it isn't that big of a deal. And it was a great performance from him. He kept the energy going, so really there was no way he was going to mess it up.
I like that Blake really takes the time to think about what he's doing. And you can tell that he's happy to be there. Some contestants, *cough* LaKisha *cough*, don't look like they're having fun. Great job, Blake.
