Well we knew there was a reason not to believe the Spoilers coming out the woodwork's from the LIVE taping of American Idol. That episode just aired today and gloomsayers are all wrong about Thia's rendition of MJ's cover of Nat king Cole's SMILE.
Granted that Thia did not receive critiques that are high flying as last week, her rendition is something that takes you from the classy suburban of heaven to the jassy finesse of eternity. The transition is the most troublesome for her, and that's just the take of the producer not the singer.
She will definetely sail through this one, though not as high as her prior performance.
