Another 4 Go Home

So now we are down to 16, and next week the top 12 will be revealed. I have to say that I am really sorry to see Alexandrea go, and I feel bad for Jason Y. having to put up with all the harsh criticism just to be knocked out of the running while Danny is still in. Well, we can always hope for next week. I am pleased that the girls got Alaina to sing, now she knows she can do it and she will be able to look back and be proud of herself. Robbie could have been interesting but there are still good guys left. That's all for now, looking forward to next week.

Top 10 Girls Do The 70's

So, it wasn't a great night; but as a long time Idol fan I have heard worse. There's seems to be an almost universal problem with singing softly, and pitchy was the word of the night. The only performance that was utterly and horribly awful was Amanda, just a nightmare, she really is so much better than that. And Kady came close with a song she had no business singing. My only other biggie is that Brooke and "You're So Vain" are NOT meant to be together. She may have the right voice, but no one singing that song should be bouncing, smiling, and annoyingly happy! I really liked Kristie, she surprised me with how well she did tonight.

Top 3: Alexandrea, Kristie, Ramiele
Bottom 3: Alaina, Kady, Amanda

Top 10 Guys Do The 70's

I'm not sure that the 70's were any kinder to the guys than the 60's were. Some were good, one was great, the rest were somewhere in the middle except of course for Danny. Admittedly Danny's vocals were much better this week; but the overly dramatic gestures, dancing, and expressions just ruin it for me. David A. won the night with a stunning version of Imagine for the show's final performance.

Top 3: David A., David H., Luke
Bottom 3: Michael, Jason Y., Danny

The Lost Addiction

So I just finished watching Season 2 of Lost. I will have to watch the 1st episode of season 3 by tomorrow, I am such an addict now. I think the good thing about watching it this way is that you really get to see how all the little clues fit together, how everyone is connected somehow. Well, it's bedtime now, bye-bye!

The First 4 Farwells

So tonight we said goodbye to Garrett, Amy, Joanne, and Colton. I have to admit the only one I am sad about is Joanne, I liked her and she had a nice voice. Danny is still with us and has the full support of VFTW, so I am afraid it will take quite a bit to get rid of him. Wonder who they will latch onto for girls next week? May their servers keep bombing. Looking forward to next week.

Top 12 Girls Do the 60's

So they weren't as spectacular as the guys but all in all it was definately a better show than say last year. I really enjoyed alot of the performances and feel that we are on our way to a fantastic season.

Carly and Ramiele were both a little more restrained than I expected but they were still very good.

Top 3: Ramiele, Asia'h, Carly
Bottom 3: Amanda, Kristie, Amy

Top 12 Guys Do The 60's

So I have to admit that I was pleased, and even a little surprised by how the night went. Danny came the closest to sucking and even his performance was livable. No one just totally fell apart and did the deer in the headlights screech and wail.

I'm not going to go through every performance, but I will say that David A. is just amazing, and I like Robbie more than I thought I would, and like Michael less. Who knows.

So tonight it will be the ladies, let's hope they are as good, or better than, the guys.

top 3: David A., Robbie, Michael
bottom 3: Garrett, Colton, Danny

American Idol Season 7

Well, I can't say I was anymore thrilled with the audition process this year; but I really did like Hollywood Week more. And even though there were people I would have liked to see in the Top 24, I'm not disappointed in any of the judges choices.

So far I think my top 3 girls are Carly, Ramiele, and Amanda. Top 3 guys are Michael, David H., and tied at third David A. & Robbie. I reserve the right to change my mind at anytime, the semi-finals always bring out the best and worst of the group.

I don't even care too much that Carly has already had a contract. Let's be real if it had gone well for her she would already be a household name and not subjecting herself to the rigors of AI. Check out her video...

Looking forward to Tuesday and some great performances.
