So, dog, the girls really didn’t do it for me tonight. And Paula still annoys the hell out of me.
So, let us begin with Miss Kristi Lee Cook: She sang Rescue Me. Hmm, I thought she had a more powerful voice then what she showed tonight. It felt to me like she sang too fast. I get that she had the flu, and I give her props for pushing through. Hubby said she played it too safe, I say she played it too boring. But I think she’ll be back next week. Maybe.
Joanne Borgetta: I like this girl, and I like her voice, but she seemed pitchy and spotty to me. I know she was nervous—but—well, you gotta shine, nerves and all.
Alaina Whitaker: I thought her performance was better then the first two. I liked it. I like her.
Amanda Overmeyer: The rock and roll nurse. She seems older than 23 to me. An old soul I guess. So to start off with, I really wish she’d ditch the Mrs. Frankenstein look. It really detracts from her. But hey, I’m all about staying true to yourself, I just don’t care for her hair. I have to give Amanda huge props for going out on that stage and doing her thang! She lets it all hang out, she is who she is. That said, I didn’t care for her performance at all. But like Simon, I like her.
Amy Davis: Before we discuss her performance let me just say, it was Connie Francis who sang Where the Boys Are, NOT Patsy Cline! Okay, so, I really wanted this girl to belt out that song, but she didn’t. Her voice was too pitchy to carry it. Too bad, because Amy has presence. That said, hubby loved the performance. It was, meh for me. I actually agreed with Paula I’m-a-Ding-Dong Abdul.
Brooke White: I like this girl, mostly because she reminds me so much of my eldest daughter. So Happy Together. I liked her performance, but I think she could have dug deeper and really done something with it. Maybe she doesn’t have the rage. Hubby didn’t care for it at all.
BTW, I hate when Paula opens her mouth. Can she not just say a complete sentence that makes sense?
Alexandrea Lushington: Whew that’s a mouthful to say and write. So, she was cute and she can sing, but she was a wee bit annoying with her gushy gush. BUT! The girl came out to win, and her performance jolted me out of my nap. BTW, I agreed with the Simonizer regarding her vocals. Always room for improvement!
Kady Malloy: I like her voice. It’s strong and vibrant. But, I’d like to see her get all wild on that stage. I didn’t think her performance was as bad as the judges did. Safe, yes, Bad? Nah.
Asia’h Epperson: What a cutie. I loved the way she sang the Janis Joplin song. She made me forget it was Janis’. Methinks she will be around for a while to come.
Remiele Malubay: Love this girl! Her hair, and her voice!
Syesha Mercado: My daughter called right when she opened her mouth! But I think I loved it. Did you?
Carly Smithson: She has a great voice. Lot’s of control. But I was bored. And it bugs the crap out of me that when Simon makes a negative comment the other two plus Seacrest, who is also beginning get on my nerves, pounce on the poor guy. Maybe they should all listen to him for a change?
So, whatcha think? An overall yawner? Who do you think will get the boot tomorrow night? I’m guessing the first two: Kristi and Joanne. The sad thing is, I don’t care who goes at this stage.
