You must go back to my home page and click on the SKIN trailer link.
Do it now before you read further. Go on…I’ll wait.
🙂 Now tell me, whatcha’ think? Justin my web guy is awesome, yes?
Hubby had to record the show for me tonight. I spent the better part of the day and evening down at my other office. By the time I got home it was long over. So because I am crazy and it’s after 4 a.m. Wednesday morning, here we go.
First of all, are any of you boo-hooing over Miss America or whoever the beauty queen was getting booted from Stars? I’m not, but did anyone see how boring Leeza Gibbons was? I really didn’t think Paulina deserved to get booted last week. Again, did anyone see how boring Leeza Gibbons was? Or how cute Apolo was? Just my thoughts on that.
Now on to AI.
I love Tony Bennett, but um, he was about as useful as the dust bunny in my office.
Blake: I only caught the very end of his performance. The ‘er um person in charge of recording wasn’t quite Johnny-on-the-spot. What I saw of Blake’s rendition of Mack the Knife was good. But Bobbie Darin does it best.
Phil: Needs hair. BUT! He has great blue eyes and a killer smile. I enjoyed his performance. I thought he really hung on to that last note. I didn’t agree with Simon at all.
Melinda: Seriously, the woman can just sing. There was absolutely no comparison between her and the two guys before her. Like frozen Sara Lee cheesecake versus Junior’s cheesecake. No comparison. Now, my only critique with Melinda is to stop acting all gooey-eyed surprised when she is praised. It’s time she stood up straight and proud and let a smattering of diva shine through-she’s earned it for God’s sake.
Chris: After Melinda, does Chris’ performance even matter? Okay, for those who do care. For me his performance was—meh. I was surprised by the judge’s comments. Maybe I just didn’t get it.
Jordin: I think her voice is really clear, and energetic. She has control of it. She has improved every week. Not in little steps but by leaps and bounds. I think she will make it to the final 3. Hubby loved her performance.
Gina: Okay, as you all know, I am not a big Gina fan. But I do try to be objective. So, I will say I thought she looked great, but her performance for me was meh. I agree with Simon. And I hate it when the contestants argue. Shut up already and get off the stage.
Sanjaya: Dares to be different. True. Now go home. Here is a newsflash: If you are going to set yourself apart by being different, talent is crucial to success. That said, while I personally found his performance a 3 on a scale of 1-10, I was happy it wasn’t his usual -2. and the hair? No comment. In fact, like the judges, I am beyond comment. And unfortunately, we’ll see the boy and his hair back next week. When do you suppose America will tire of the kid?
Haley: She looked gorgeous and her voice has gotten stronger—but she doesn’t have the range she needs to win or even make it to the top 3. Although for her, I thought she sounded great tonight. Hubby just got all giddy during her performance. Men.
LaKisha: Hubby didn’t like it. I thought it was a strong performance—the woman can sing—but right now if we were to down to LaKisha and Melinda, M would get my vote.
My prediction: the worst performance was you-know-who. I mean he doesn’t come close to any of the other idols in talent–however we have seen that really doesn’t matter. He’ll be around next week. I predict we’ll lose Phil but won’t be surprised if we see Gina or Chris hit the road.
Thoughts? Predictions and wasn’t that trailer hot?
