Finally, we get to the singing!
Finally, it's time for the singing on Idol. Tonight the first 12 sang and these are my thoughts...

Jackie Tohn--"A Little Less Conversation" I didn't like her spandex and I didn't like her rendition of this song. She is, however, very comfortable on stage. I think she was trying to have fun, but it just came off weird. 5/10

Ricky Braddy--"A Song For You" I really do like this guy's voice. I admit to not remembering him before tonight., but that's OK. He has some trouble with the high notes but overall I liked it a lot. I would like to hear something a little more upbeat from him. I don't think he'll make it past tonight. 7/10

Alexis Grace--"Never Loved A Man" Wow! Alexis was really good! Also, I think she looked great! I would really like her to stay because I think she could do some really awesome songs later in the show. 8 & 1/2 out of 10

Brent Keith--"Hicktown" I didn't like the song choice at all. I won't remember his performance tomorrow. Or in 5 minutes. I think other guys will outshine him. PS he sasses back to Simon. Even if I loved him, I could never vote for him. 5/10

Stevie Wright--"You Belong to me" Really bad song choice and wow was she ever out of tune. Poor Stevie. I wanted her to be good. She just wasn't. 3/10

Anoop Desai--"Angel of Mine" Like Simon said, he has a huge likability.factor. He could have picked a better song. Pleasant voice, but nothing that stood out, though, I do like him. 7/10

Casey Carlson--"Every Little Thing She(he) Does is Magic" Nope. Bad song choice. (Though I love The Police's version.) Flat. Off key. Just not good. 4/10

Michael Sarver--"I Don't Wanna Be" One of my very favorite songs. He did a pretty decent job but what I loved was that he showed LOTS of personality! 7/10

Anne-Marie Boskavich--"Natural Woman" Eh. While she was better than Stevie and Casey, she still wasn't that great. 6/10

Stephen Fowler--"Rock With You" I didn't think it was as bad as the judges made it out to be. I kinda liked it. 6 1/2 out of 10

Tatiana Del Toro--"Saving All My Love For You." Doesn't much matter because I loathe her. 5 to 6 out of 10

Danny Gokey--"Hero" Love. Amen. 9/10

Alexis and Danny are my two favorites. If I had to pick a third it would be Michael Sarver.

I'm a little bit bummed because so many of these people were disappointing.

I didn't like the 'parents-in-the-red room' thing. CAR-uh was a little annoying. And my Simon spoke the truth as always.

A sort of disappointing start to the singing this year. I hope it gets better!!

Stimulating the economy
Meet my new baby...

This is Balki.


Also, how about this for new comfy seating?

There's a matching loveseat, too. Suddenly, the whole family hangs out together in the living room. It's funny how new furniture and some simple throw pillows and curtains make such a big difference in one room!

Bubba and I also got a much-needed new bed.

How's that for economy stimulation?

The big O would be so proud, don't ya think??
