A rather benign night. Let’s see, Jennifer Lopez is cute but not much help. She did look fab, and so did Paula btw. I much prefer her hair long. Yes, I know she was wearing extensions, most of the girls were, and if they didn’t break the hell out of your hair I just may consider them myself. But wait, I sit up in my office all day is sweats and fuzzy slippers fighting the cat over my chair and write. I guess it would be for naught.
Melinda: She looked the best she has looked all season, and while her performance was a bit forced (she was right, she does not do sexy) I enjoyed it. Some gals are comfy in sexy. Melinda ain’t one of them. But that’s ok, she has the voice.
LaKisha: Holy Moly! She was jiggling all over that stage! Whew, I was sitting way back in my seat. Um, I did not care for the performance. It was—I can’t quite explain it—would someone like to take a stab at it? —-Hold the phone! Simon just did.
Chris: He started out very nervous. For me it didn’t get much better. I didn’t like the rendition. He still comes across to me as someone trying to imitate someone else. When he finds his true voice he will soar.
Haley: We should just call her gams. Wow, talk about playing to your strengths. Hubby couldn’t wait to start voting for her. Men. My biggest complaint with her performance was I couldn’t hear her. She really needs to belt it out, to project, she doesn’t do that. Oh, and I did not like her makeup, too loud for her face. She had fun with the song and hubby just grinned, then when he could, voted for her 9 times. (I know Cele, Cali was supposed to vote for Melinda and we did…but those hot legs deserved some recognition).
Phil: bored me.
Jordin: We got us a dark horse here. She looked the classic Latina part and sounded great. That said I know what Simon meant. Midway through her performance I found myself picking up the book I started earlier (it is very very good btw, TAKE ME TONIGHT by Rocki St.Claire).
Blake: Sounded good-solid-I think up to him we were coasting, he raised the bar. I really enjoyed him. He just might surprise us and finish in the top two. Marc Antony eat your heart out.
Sanjaya: I’m cringing and he hasn’t stepped on stage yet. Ewwwww. Besame mucho? How about besame butt!
ARGH!!!!! It happened!!! O. M. G!! I. CAN. NOT. BELIEVE. I. AM. GOING. TO. WRITE. THIS!!!!! SOMEONE. PLEASE. SMACK. ME! The little turd actually looked good and he sang halfway decently! Holy cow! And he gets my vote to stay on the island! There, I said it. I can’t believe it. Never say never, huh? Okay now before anyone says I told you so, he was still in the bottom three of performances tonight, but barely. Good job.
Phil gets my boot tomorrow night. Whatcha think?
Oh, and on Dancing? Drew Lachey
Thoughts and/or predictions regarding Idol? I think it’s a foregone conclusion Phil is toast.
And once again, congrats to my five finalist in the First Line Contest. The entries are tops and so are the gals who wrote them. When I find a way to get all of the contestants under and editor’s nose y’all will be the first to know.
