Idol grand dame Kelly Clarkson can belt it out, and her hit single, A Moment Like This, is one of the best Kodak jingles ever to masquerade as a pop song. Tamyra Gray’s take on A House Is Not a Home is respectable, but the rest of the singers on this instant piece of pop nostalgia really do deserve the withering insults to which they were subjected. The song selection (lots of Stevie Wonder) is repetitive, and the performances have the spooky, hyperemotive quality of a Six Flags revue. That trait may come in handy in the performers’ inevitable search for future employment. –BY JOSH TYRANGIEL
