Fickle America

How quickly the tides change. One minute they love ya, the next they throw you to the lions. Mandisa, Paris and Elliott in the bottom three. Wow. I’m very disappointed that I have to look at Elliott for another week. I was really surprised to see Mandisa go. Did she deserve it? I don’t think so. What I can’t believe it that Bucky is still there! Who is voting for this guy? Ya know, I said I was going to vote last night, and I was, but I forgot. But, I was only going to vote for Taylor and Kelli. So I guess I’m off the hook.
OK, I’m getting a bit tired of these guys not going for broke, for playing it safe. In my most humble opinion, I think Taylor, Chris, and if she continues to grow, Kelli, could be the next AI. But they have to keep on track, pick songs that show off their range and talent. And as my editor at Kensington Hilary Sares says, “Be shameless.”

    What the HELL I am totally at a loss for words!! I just don’t understand. But as an avid AI watcher from day 1/season 1 I have to say I think that this is just about the worst group they have had I truly don’t know who will take it now. Look out america Bucky could be the next AI cause your certainly not voting for the best singer.

    I missed AI Tuesday night, but saw Mandisa sing “Any Man of Mine” last night. She was horrible. If she sang that badly on Tuesday, I can see why she’s gone. Simon’s right. It doesn’t matter how good she sang before, it matters how good they were the previous night.

    It was pretty horrible, Edie.
    I’m with Mar though, Bucky sucks the big one regularly, but Mandisa gets the boot. :shit:

    Personally I think your editor is brilliant. 😉

    You know I love country music, but Bucky squeaked by imo. No doubt bubba-central is busy keeping him where he is. Chris has the best vocals, imo. Kelli is very good, but something about her bugs me. Taylor is the diamond in the rough. This guy has got talent out the arse. Mandisa is a very talented singer–hated to see her go when others deserved the book much more.

    He has been squeaking by, Jan with no help from the others who have been tanking.
    I agree with you on the brilliant editor comment.

  6. Amy

    I agree on all points but one. I really didn’t think Mandisa did badly her last time out. I must be deaf because apparently everyone else disagrees.

    “I must be deaf because apparently everyone else disagrees.”

    clean your ears!

    Did anyone hear about Paula’s comments last night on the tonight show about Ryan? Should make for a tense/interesting show tonight.

    I’m all for the “Be Shameless” part.

  10. Karin

    I saw Leno last night, and Paula’s comments were rather instigative. I didn’t pay real close attention to the back and forth banter tonight as I was revisimg when there was no singing. Did I miss something?
    Crystal? Always be shameless. :evil2:
