Unless it improves quickly, Syesha Mercado's performance of "Me and Mr. Jones," the old Billy Paul song (done with a sex change) appears primed to be one of the worst performances of the evening.
Ms. Mercado is all over the chart on the song. Let's hear what the judges think:
Randy Jackson criticized the song choice. "It goes nowhere for me."
Paula Abdul said Syesha missed her soft notes, but as usual, said she liked it.
Simon Cowell called it indulgent. "The song wasn't written for a girl, so it was a bit indulgent for you to do it."
