American Idol~Top11
Sorry, guys. My blogging has been the suck lately. I have no reason...just apathy, I guess. For now, I'm putting you through yet another AI post. For that, I apologize.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Tonight determines who will be in the Top 10. (Duh! There are 11 people left. One gets voted off tomorrow. See how that works?)

Is it just me or does Ryan just look like a major pipsqueak in his suits?

Tonight's theme is songs from the British Invasion of the early 60s. I'm sure there will be some horrid song choices..and performances.

Haley Scarnato is first. Her song is, "Tell Him." Haley is bra-less and it's obvious. She's also wearing brown shorts. Weird. Cute shoes, though. I think she did fine on the song, but it certainly doesn't showcase her voice at all. She almost sounds out of breath.
6/10

Chris Richardson sings "Don't Let the Sun Catch You Crying." I don't think I've ever heard this song. He's singing it with a guitar player only. Chris is too whispery for my liking. I hate how he is dressed. Blah. Plus, I wish they'd make him grow his hair out like Elliott did last year. Boring song and performance. He sang it ok, though.
7/10

Stephanie Edwards goes third singing, "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me." Stephanie looks gorgeous in blue. Stephanie sort of has a weird way of breathing during her songs. She sounded a tad shaky and kind of looked scared for some reason. Stephanie has a really good voice. This may not have been her best performance ever, but by no means was it weak. Just on the boring side, like Chris R.
7/10

Blake Edwards sings "Time Of The Season." I HATE his hair almost as much as I HATE his plaid pants. This time, the beat-boxing actually goes with the song well, if you can believe that. A very cool performance. The high notes strained him a bit, but overall a really good performance. I'm scoring him fairly high because it wasn't boring! :)
8/10

Lakisha Jones is up next with "Diamonds Are Forever." Lakisha looks great in green, but I can't decide if I like the curly hair. She's wearing a million dollars worth of diamonds. Gorgeous! I don't like her song choice, but man, she can SANG!!
8/10

Phil Stacey sings "Tobacco Road." I can't hear this song and NOT picture the guys singing it on the finale last year. At least it wasn't a boring performance. He had lots of fun. It's just that his vocal wasn't that great. He also lacks the "cool" factor.
6/10

Jordin Sparks sings "I Who Have Nothing." Jordin looks gorgeous in black and straightened hair. AWESOME performance! She's right up there in the top! It was a slow song that didn't suck because of "boring-ness!" Nothing else to say.
9/10

Sanjaya Malakar is up next singing "You Really Got Me." Just...no.
4/10

Gina Glocksen sings "Paint It Black." Gina got her hair did. Looks better. Gina did better than last week, but I am not much of a Gina fan. She screeches. Blah. Oh, and I HATED her shirt.
6/10

Chris Sligh sings "She's Not There." I become less of a Chris Sligh fan every week. I did not like this one much. He doesn't sound very good if he moves and sings at the same time. It was just ok. Just eh.
5/10

Melinda Doolittle is up last singing "As Long As He Needs Me" Melinda got her hair did, too. Melinda is singing a slow one this week. I don't like the song choice, but yes, Melinda can sing. Not her best ever, but she did well. Kind of boring but that doesn't really matter.
9/10

A pretty good week as Idol goes. I can't help but miss last year. Anyway, until next time, I'm out.

The Top 12 Sing
Time for the Top 12 to sing. God, did it take FOREVER to get to this point??

Interesting that they didn't showcase Taylor in their opening sequence. Ah, well, I still loves my Taylor Hicks.

Ryan looks decent in his suit. He always looks too scruffy to me, though.

Diana Ross songs tonight. She met with the singers to help coach them. Her hair is HUGE!

First up is...

Brandon Rogers singing "Can't Hurry Love." Nervous around DR. I like his shirt. He has a pretty good stage presence. A couple of cracks of his voice and he forgot a couple of words, but I think he did decent. A tad on the blah side, but I like Brandon better than a few of the others. I say let him stay another week.
7/10

Ryan and Simon go at it...at one point, Ryan said, "Stay out of my closet!" and Simon said, "Come out!" HILARIOUS!

Melinda Doolittle singing "I'm Home." (I think?) Melinda is just such a good singer, but I don't always like her song choice. Tonight, she is awesome again. With a capital A. She just has an oddly large head and very little neck. It's strange.
9 1/2 out of 10

Chris Sligh sings "Endless Love." He lost me as a fan a while back. Oh, he's not wearing his glasses and I think he looks better WITH. He changed up the song and he rushed his lyrics. Some not so good moments during that song. I didn't like it much. (Randy was right when he said it sounded like a particular Coldplay song, I just can't remember which one.) They really have to do something with his helmet of hair.
4 1/2 out of 10

Gina Glocksen sings "Love Child." She has a screechy sound to her voice on the higher notes and when she tries to get louder. It was ok. Eh, not my favorite.
5/10

Sanjaya Malakar sings "Ain't No Mountain High Enough". Ok, they've kind of made Sanjaya look like...Shirley Temple tonight! Why??? It reminds me of the Sucky Bucky hair debacle of 2006! *sigh* Sanjaya needs to go. Even Chicken Little was able to project his decent voice last year. I just didn't like Sanjaya's performance. It was weak and soft and...uh..just...uh...And the discussion after was just uncomfortable. Let's move along now...
3/10

Haley Scarnato sings "Missing You." She starts out too whispery. She's holding the mic all up in her grill. (hee hee) A bad song choice for Haley. She sounded pretty bad through the entire song. She forgot her lyrics, too. She has an ugly dress on, too. The judges will rip her for this one. The song, not the dress. What??? Simon thought she did well and had a real presence. What?? I'm shocked. She must be doing him. What? Did I say that out loud?
3/10

Ryan's nana makes an appearance in the audience. She's cute.

Phil Stacey sings a song I didn't catch the title to. At least he doesn't have a dorky hat on tonight. Phil reminds me of the "bat boy" that used to be on the cover of that really bad tabloid magazine, "World News." (or something like that.) He just has a weird look about him. Ok, on to the singing. I guess I am just jaded this year. I didn't think it was that great, but at least it was better than most of the others. He hit a couple of bad notes, but it was ok. He did better than last week, for sure.
7/10

Lakisha Jones sings "God Bless the Child." Lakisha looks so very pretty tonight in her white gown and simple hair. An AWESOME performance! She didn't over sing at all. I think I even liked her a little more than Melinda.
9 3/4 out of 10

Blake Lewis sings "You Keep Me Hanging On." The worst Blake performance yet. I didn't like it.
5/10

Stephanie Edwards sings "Love Hangover." I love her dress. It looks great on her. I liked her performance, though judges were a little cool about it. Stephanie is one of the top in my opinion.
8/10

Chris Richardson sings "The Boss." I think he kind of gets worse every week. I didn't like it.
4/10

Jordin Sparks sings "If We Hold On Together." I just love Jordin. She is so darn cute! I think she did a great job on the song, though I think it wasn't the greatest choice of song. I love Jordin. Simon called it gooey. :) He's funny tonight.
8/10

Ok, my favorites for the night: Lakisha, Jordin, Melinda and Stephanie
The worst: Sanjaya and Haley followed by the Chrises.

See ya tomorrow for the results.

The burning question
I got asked a most profound question in my comments. (by someone anonymous, of course.) The question was, "Who cares who you like on idol?" Heh, NOBODY, that's who. I just love to bug the people who happen by here, that's all. :)

In other news...my Dell is dead. It is currently at the computer doctor being rescusitated. I hope. Because of that, I am reduced to having to use this old computer from....1998!! It is bang-my-head-against-the-keyboard frustrating. But, at least I am still connected.

Now, I have to go dry my hair. We are on our way to a winter guard competition about an hour and a half away.

Toodles.

GTHOTS #2
It's GTHOTS night number 2. Who will go home tonight? Let's see how it all goes down...

Group song time..."Joy To the World." Not quite the cheesy choreography as last week. The song was ok, but a couple of the solos were kinda..bad.

First guy to GTHOTS is Nick Pedro.

First girl to GTHOTS is Alaina Alexander. She didn't really handle the whole last song thing very well. Saying "oh god" and "sorry" into the mic when she messed up.

Kelly Pickler..blah blah blah..a set up conversation with Ryan about sushi. Then she sings and doesn't move. At. All. Her head and mouth moved, but her body...arms..legs..nothing..moved! That was odd.

2nd guy to GTHOTS is AJ Tabaldo. Should have been Sanjaya.

2nd girl to GTHOTS is Leslie Hunt. No surprise.

Ok, I promise, no more Idol until Tuesday.
