Janis Joplin wanna-be Amanda Overmyer is singing a powerful version of Kansas' '70s classic, "Carry On, Wayward Son." When she hits the notes, she's great, but she has missed a few. This is a song that works well for her, however.
The lady has energy to spare and she is ending the song with a flourish.
Now for the judges:
Randy Jackson did not like it. "Way too much melody for a bluesy girl."
Paula Abdul enjoyed Amanda's dancing, but did not like the song.
Simon Cowell thought it was contrived.
Again, though it wasn't great, I believe the audience will like it better than the judges. That being said, it will likely fall short of the top two or three tonight.
