All review of yesterday ! all articles talk about Melinda performance My funny Valentine. Like Bernie say no one can't touch that song. It belong to Melinda! My Funny Valentine is untouchable after Melinda sing it!

Melinda Doolittle did a BRILLIANT version of this song Joe's Place Blog - http://www.joesplaceblog.com/

You sang Melinda Doolittle's signature Idol song! Twenty-Eight Something - http://twentyeightsomething.blogspot.com

“My Funny Valentine”- Oh man, I remember when Melinda Doolittle did this one and I LOVED it. He has BIG shoes to fill. A Day With Jake - http://adaywithjake.blogspot.com/

I thought back to when Melinda Doolittle sang this song. The praises she received after her performances was something I'll never forget (because I think it was the first ... DeeJay's Ebenezer Stone - http://deejay471970.blogspot.com/

And I remember Melinda Doolittle's version well - she's amazing Entertainment Weekly's PopWatch - http://popwatch.ew.com/popwatch/

...all i can think of, though, is Melinda Doolittle's incredible Season 6 performance of this song. the Good, the Bad, and the Pitchy - http://nicole-jeffersai.blogspot.com/

No way will any Idol be able to sing "My Funny Valentine" as good as Melinda Doolittle.Oh No They Didn't! - http://ohnotheydidnt.livejournal.com/


Didn't Melinda Doolittle do this song a few seasons ago? It is reserved and I like it very much. Great job! - From Inmates to Playdates - http://www.frominmatestoplaydates.com/

My Funny Valentine, which should have been retired after Melinda Doolittle killed it. Kathleen Taylor's Dakota Dreams - http://kathleen-dakotadreams.blogspot.com/


The husband just said that Matt's version didn't come anywhere close to Melinda Doolittle's version of this song a couple of years ago, BooMama - http://boomama.net/

My Funny Valentine” At this point in the show we got to the “good, but past Idols have done it better” portion. With this song, Melinda Doolittle's rendition was a hell of a lot better

No one in the history of IDOL will ever perform this song better than Melinda Doolittle did a few seasons back.http://www.givememyremote.com/remote/


the song "My Funny Valentine" belongs to Season 6 finalist Melinda Doolittle, in my mind detnews.com | American Idol Blog - http://apps.detnews.com/apps/blogs/idolblog/index.php

Oh my! Melinda Doolittle owns this song on Idol (I miss her on the Idol stage!). http://acanofcoke.wordpress.com/

I can go on and on! about it!!

My Funny Valentine: Totally just remembered that Melinda Doolittle sang the pants off this song   - http://footballisforgirls.wordpress.com/

He was fine, but Melinda Doolittle's version of this song from two seasons back is untouchable. http://foryourspeculation.blogspot.com/

I was thoroughly ticked off with Matt for daring to sing that song on AI.  He was off key half the time, those runs were so weak I thought he needed oxygen and there was no flow to it.  Worse that than, I don't think he has any idea what that song is about.  Is that his idea of telling a story?  To tell you the truth, I'm still pi$$ed about it.  Hopefully, some of his voters remembered Melinda's performance and were as offended as I was.

I'm sayin... I was expecting at least one of them to mention that Melinda had killed that song.  They do it all the time with other former contestants, why not last night?   

I dunno, I guess I just have absolutely no objectivity when it comes to Melinda.

ITA, Vick.  What is wrong with them?  All the bloggers that Louise listed are talking about Mel's performance TWO SEASONS LATER!  C'mon.  And Simon!  I usually agree with him but he was totally drinking "Paula juice" last night.  Indy, Matt stunk up the room with that rendition.  Melinda wrung every ounce of meaning out of that song and made every person who heard it melt.  You should hear her sing it on this AI stars tour she's been on.  The woman is flawless.

I agree SOOOOOO much with you and Vicki on this.... I was mortified when they didn't mention Melinda.  This is a beautiful post, Cathy.

OMG, I'm dying to see Melinda sing MFV in person.  I don't understand why she's not touring in this area. 

I don't think Matt's version of that song stands up to anybody's let alone Melinda's.  It was just weird!!  And this is somebody who studied jazz in college?  Who was the instructor, Wierd Al Yankovic? 

My workmate called me from the office this a.m. to say that people are huddled around raising cane about what Matt did and Simon's reaction to it.  I'll bet that's going on all over the place.

Slezak (EW) has it all right, including appropriate comparison and veneration of Melinda's MFV, the warmest adulation for Allison and anger at Simon for being a "little garden snake"....

I love Sleazy -- sometimes.  He does manage to cough up certain words of wisdom.  He also said this:  Adam looked like Liberace's pool boy.

Oh, my!
