Here's Allison Iraheta, who says she went to Adam's hair stylist tonight. She's sporting some longer extensions with traces of purple. She's singing Janis Joplin's "Cry Baby," and Slash says the only thing she has to fear is fear itself.
Another solid vocal. It's one of my favorites from Allison. Why? Because it's the first time that her big, husky vocals actually seem to match the song she's chosen. I really see her potential as a viable rock artist, and she nails this one by giving us a commanding stage presence, lots of range, and no over-singing.
Randy: "I didn't love this."
Kara: "I think that you transform when you go on that stage."
Paula: "I thought you were downright fearless."
Simon: "I thought you had complete confidence up there. I thought it was a terrific vocal." But he tells her she should have gone with her other song choice: Jefferson Airplane's "Somebody to Love."
Allison fires back confronting the judges' criticism and, saying, "You're always saying I don't talk enough, so maybe I should just talk a lot."
