Matt Giraud (My Funny Valentine). I love this song, but oh Matt. I know it's an unfair (and unofficial) rule that you shouldn't try to perform a song that's still memorable from seasons past. Melinda Doolittle killed this song two seasons ago, and any attempt at a remake is sure to be compared

Matt Giraud "My Funny Valentine" The beginning was awful and the whole thing was nowhere near as good as Melinda Doolittle's superb rendition on season 6.

It is great to hear that so many are referencing Melinda's killer performance of this song.  I was hoping hoping hoping that Simon would tell Matt that his rendition was "hideous, sorry" and that no one should do it since Melinda Doolittle did it to perfection in Season 6 . .or "if you really want to hear how that song was sung, listen to Melinda Doolittle", but then it was like the twilight zone and Simon said he was "brilliant".   Unbelievable Unbelievable Unbelievable Unbelievable Unbelievable

And I am P*$$#@ that the Judges didn't mention Melinda's version last night!  That's unforgivable.  Enraged

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.

I'm with you all.  I was absolutely expecting a mention, especially since they do it so often with others.  Sometimes I just really, really, REALLY do not understand them  Dunno

I don't even know who that Adam is because I'm not watching AI this year, but that comment made me laugh so hard.  Rolling On Floor Laughing Rolling On Floor Laughing Rolling On Floor Laughing Rolling On Floor Laughing Rolling On Floor Laughing

The number of views on Melinda's MFV video on our You Tube Channel has increased considerably since tuesday.

Cool, there's the silver lining I was looking for.  Turns out Matt has brought the spotlight back to Melinda - where it should be anytime MFVis even thought about.  Now all I need is to see his no-singing behind cast out of the competition tonight.  Then I'll be completely satisfied.

Yes; the other silver lining is that it has helped Allison, for which I already thanked Melinda here!

Thanks, Louise, for summarizing all the commentaries.  I just about fell over when I heard Matt was going to sing MFV.  I knew he would not do it justice and fall in comparision with Melinda's version.  He should have stuck with Mac the Knife or something.

I've never figured out why AI is averse to Melinda.  She got as far as she did for being supremely talented, not from any favors from AI.
