Taylor's "Dancing in the Dark"? I thought it was a decent Bruce tribute.
I'm a closet Journey fan and I'll say this: Elliott Yamin is certainly not uglier than Steve Perry. It takes a heapin' helping of cheesiness to match up to Mr. Journey, though, and Elliott couldn't muster the necessary sappiness.
I don't quite get the fuss over McPhee's "Over the Rainbow." Every time that girl falls on the floor, everybody gets all excited. She has legs people, deal with it.
Hick's "Try a Little Tenderness" was a mistake. If you're going to be the next Joe Cocker, be the next Joe Cocker. Go gravelly, go deep. Taylor was actually trying to sing, which didn't work.
Doesn't matter anyway. Time for Elliott's final bow. We'll see him someday on some cruise ship somewhere. Maybe over the rainbow. Maybe.
