Top 24--Guys' Night

Woo hoo! Finally! Let the singing begin! If you want to talk Idol with a bunch of Idol-aholics, drop by Slim's Place AKA Idolbloglive.com. Slim blogs the shows live and I blog results night live. It's kinda fun. Come on over.

I'll be back here later to leave a few thoughts.

Ok, so here are my Idol thoughts.

Paula was coherent though someone took a weed-whacker to her head. I noticed that all contestants (even the girls sitting on the sidelines) were wearing DULL colors. Why does that matter? It doesn't. But I'm not me unless I am commenting on hair or clothes or facial expressions or something other than the singing.

Not much has changed as the same old things annoy me. Mainly, Paula and Randy. Simon, as always, continues to be spot on with his assessments.

David Hernandez--In The Midnight Hour. Great sound to his voice. He needs a little more stage presence. As Simon said, he was a little stiff. 8 of 10

Chikezie--I didn't know the song he sang. I wanted to like him after seeing him in auditions, but I just didn't. The performance was quite boring and just eh. What killed it for me was that he talked back to Simon and I HATE that. I won't be voting for him, ever, unless he blows me away. 4 1/2 of 10

David Cook--So Happy Together. Much better than I thought it was going to be. I like him. I am not, however, loving his hair. 7 1/2 of 10

Jason Yeager--Kind of a snoozy choice of song in Moon River. *yawn* He did well, but I think song choice will kill him. That and lack of camera time overall. Quite forgettable. 6 of 10

Robbie Carrico--One. TOTAL rocker wannabe. I don't like him as much as he likes himself. But, you know, the whole long hair thing will get him votes. His vocals are ok, but he sounded better in auditions. I wasn't blown away, but he wasn't boring. 6 1/2 to 7 of 10

David Archuleta--You Better Shop Around. He's cute, young and has a great personality. He'll get the young votes, I think. He's a great performer with a good stage presence. A couple of off notes but nothing major. One thing, his loud intakes of breath drive me crazy! 9 of 10

Danny Noriega--JailHouse Rock. I hated the entire thing. I hate his skinny jeans! He, too, is a talk-backer. 4 1/2 of 10

Luke Menard--Everybody's Talking At Me. He's an Indiana boy and I was hoping he'd do well. He didn't. Bad song choice..boring..mediocre vocals...forgettable. But, he looks like JACK! Jack! From Lost. 4 1/2 of 10

Colton Berry--Suspicious Minds. Ick. Do not like. 4 of 10

Garrett Haley--Breaking Up is Hard To Do. Boring, slow, bad. 4 of 10

Jason Castro--Daydream. I don't know how to describe him, but I am now a huge fan. He played his guitar too, which is a plus for me. I do not like the dreads. I REALLY like him. There is something about him. I hope he continues to do well. 9 of 10

Michael Johns--Light My Fire. I really like him. Though it wasn't fabulous, there is something about him. Could be the Aussie factor. 8 1/2 of 10

Overall, a good night. I am just glad we are into the singing now.

    I could understand the girls dressing in drab colors tonignt. They were supposed to be in the background so no one's outfit would distract for the guys performances.
    I mostly agree with you on the performances. Danny Noriega can't get voted off too fast for me. I don't like anything about him.
    I think David Cook will get better, but the hair thing is the result of male pattern baldness. He's just decited to do a "comb to the front" instead of a "comb over".
    Guess I'll see ya at Slim's place tonight.
