Dedication rounds continued last night with big voices, little skirts, and enough Whitney and Celine worship to maketh us puke. But these chicks mean business. With their breathy and booming display of vocal control they overpowered and outsang the boys for a second straight week.

Gina Glocksen (Dedicated to: Her Boif)
Punky hair stripe, tattoos, big heels and a fancy, red satin dress. Simon is confused about her image. We approve of her rocking Heart’s “Alone,” however “Barracuda” would have been cooler.

Alaina Alexander (Dedicated to: Her Moms)
The Cali Redlands native “ran out of steam” during a blah Dixie Chicks offering. She’s a cute girl with an ok voice, but she moves kind of like a ragdoll and looks like she might cry at any moment.

LaKisha Jones (Dedicated to: Her 90 year old Grandma who has a crush on Seacrest)
Simon thought her choice of an Orange shirt was distracting, but LAist believes the shirt was Salmon, and flattering. LaKisha sang “Midnight Train To Georgia” and possibly did so better than Gladys. She continues to belt it out with poise and sincerity.

Melinda Doolittle
(Dedicated to: Her Stylist and Vocal Coach)
The smiling back-up-singer-that-could did a killer rendition of “My Funny Valentine” -- perhaps the worst song ever next to the entire Rush catalog -- which makes our girl a top contender for turd polishing. And she might win this competition too.
