| 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!!
