Majesty Rose performs

'Idol' kicked off its first "Rush Week" last night with several cool twists on the normal girls' night/boys' night format.

More on that tomorrow, right now, let's just rush to the recap.

Majesty Rose sang "Happy" by Pharrell

Keith Said: There were moments of your vocal range. That was great.

J-Lo Said: That's the way to come out here. Your voice sounds amazing.

Harry Said: You did a fantastic job.

The Verdict:

Fun and spunky little girl with a great personality. Enough to make you wish she could actually sing.

Majesty just doesn't have the voice. She got absolutely lost in the gym and had no quality to her vocals beyond somebody singing along to the radio in their car. She just isn't going to blow anybody away, and this is a show where blowaway vocals are necessary.

She's great on stage though. She absolutely rocked the crowd and could not have been more naturally fun with a great little pop song. It's too bad her singing can't match her presence.


Kristen O'Connor sang "Turning Tables" by Adele

Keith Said: You got in the zone half-way through.

J-Lo Said: You locked in half-way through.

Harry Said: A really powerful performance.

The Verdict:

Taking on Adele should be just forbidden on these shows: Nobody is going to do these songs justice and they're just so unique to the original artist.

Kristen tries her best here, but she just doesn't have the pipes. She finds her vocal footing about half-way through after a rough and flat beginning, but never really connected totally with this song with too much effort in her voice and not much going on in the quality department.
