Naima Adedapo, Kendra Chantelle are slinky but forgettable on 'American Idol'

Naima Adedapo is next on "American Idol." She slinks out in a yellow dress with yet another rendition of "Summertime." She's totally over-the-top. It's all a bit too much and I feel jittery watching. It's not enjoyable since she's working every gesture and trying so hard.

Vocally she's just OK. Iif you're gonna sing this song, you gotta be amazing. She does go big on the last note, but I felt no connection.

Jennifer Lopez says "you're like an exotic flower," Randy Jackson calls it lounge acty, nothing as good as Fantasia but you made it interesting, he tells her, and he liked the last note. Steven Tyler crazily calls her like an early Ella Fitzgerald

Kendra Chantelle is up next, dressed in all black; doing "Impossible." She doesn't really have a huge voice here but a nice demeanor. Another forgettable performance for me.

Randy says not bad, liked her vibrato. Tyler calls her "hot" all around, and J.Lo likes her heart but wants to see more.
