I'm not sure why I watched initially. Possibly this.
Ben Folds was a judge. I really dig Ben. He was a great judge. But Jewel was the shit* as a judge! While Ben and the third judge (oh, he's a Boyz to Men dude) and hunky Nick Lachey would talk about the overall sound or harmony in general terms, Jewel was dropping terms like "recitative" and "transitional bridge" and, as far as I know, she used them correctly.
* A good thing.
So I'm excited that she dueted with Dolly and the song, while abundantly sentimental, is also not entirely awful. Thanks to Dolly.
Song: "My Father's Daughter"
Artist: Jewel/Dolly Parton
