My American Idol Weekly Verdict
OK, here it is for all of you American Idol junkies like me. : ) My weekly verdict.
I thought the whole show was really entertaining last night. A few of the performers seem to be fizzling instead of improving, but the rest are just getting better and better every week. It is going to be tough to see any go.
The ones I think are vulnerable tonight are: Syesha, Ramiele, David Hernandez, and Kristy Lee Cook. If I had to pick just one, I'd predict David Hernandez is going home tonight. But it is a toss up for me between him and Ramiele.
Here's my picks:
Star of the night:
No doubt about it, Chikezie was the star. Who knew he could do that? His performance was a lot of fun and set the tone for the night. It was a hard act for Ramiele to follow.
Consistently bringing great performances week after week:
Still Need to Find a Great Song:
My original favorites coming 0ut of Hollywood week were Carly Smithson and Michael Johns, but both have disappointed me a little. They are really talented, but haven't had their moments of shining yet. Carly did better last night than she has in the past. She's improving every week, too.
Rising to the Top:
The one who is really beginning to win my heart is Brooke White. She gets better every week and I love her style.
Why I'm not an Amanda Fan:
I know there are a lot of Amanda Overmyer fans out there, but here's why she's not my favorite. Every song sounds the same to me. When I try to imagine her album, I can't see myself enjoying it because she doesn't have any variety. She's a rocker, but Christ Daughtry was too, and he showed he could sing anything. She hasn't proven that to me yet.
Things that made me laugh:
To Jason Castro:
"You sounded like a student in your room at midnight." Huh? If you DVR'd it last night, you should rewind it and look for the guy in the background trying to figure out what Simon is saying. He's semi bald with a navy and white Polo on. The look on his face is priceless. : )
Or how about to Kristy Lee Cook:
"You sounded like Dolly Parton on helium." You have to laugh at that one. : )
But nothing beats Paula a few weeks ago when she said to David Archuleta, "You're just so cute. I just want to squeeze you, and pop your head off, and hang you from my rear view mirror." (quoted from my memory) We had to rewind the DVR many times to hear that one over again. Run David, run! : )
Best News of All:
The results show has been moved to Wednesday instead of Thursday. Yippeee!!!! I hope that is a permanent change. We have Thursday night Bible Study homegroup to go to, and I always had to stay up really late to hear the results. I'm a happy girl!
Leave me a comment with your picks and reviews. : ) I'm just so glad there are other AI junkies out there with me.
