And Karin is tired. Life interrupted me up until just about ten minutes ago. I wrote zero today. A very bad thing. Tomorrow I’m going under for a writing marathon.
Watching Idol tonight was almost an exercise in futility. My kids were constantly interrupting me. Then there was my daughter’s dog, Chopper, who is part Rhodesian Ridgeback and staying with his gran for a while. He is a happy 70 pound camper who wants nothing more than to make friends with the girls (Coco and Zoe my two little shih-tzus) and who were having none of it. So he processed to annihilate there squeaky toys. He pulled the stuffing out, and the squeakers all while Zoe barked her freakin’ head off at him. Needless to say, AI did not have my undivided attention this evening. But, I did manage a few notes.
So here goes.
Carly: I love Heart. I have a bunch of Heart on my iPod. I liked her performance. I liked it a lot. Disagreed with Randy and as usual agreed with Simon.
Syesha: I was on the phone with my aunt. How did she do?
Brooke: Love Carly Simon. I thought it was a good solid performance. I’m glad Simon liked it.
Raniele: Adorable. I thought she did fantastic. I can see her as the next American Idol. Totally disagree with Randy, that chick, and Simon.
Kristy: Looked great. But her performance came across as kind of overdone. I thought she did a solid job.
Amanda: Wow, that hair and those pants. Boston? I was so anticipating her nailing it. Yowch! I was cringing when she started. Paula actually got it right, and when Simon spoke I felt really bad for Amanda. I’m pretty sure she’s gone. But, I kind of hope she doesn’t go.
Alaina: Hopelessly Devoted to You, was hopelessly booooring. I’d really like to see her belt one out. Simon nailed it. He is so good.
Alexandrea: Hated the get up. Okay here’s my take on this girl: She is above average in vocals. Has lots of personality, but, she doesn’t enunciate the ending of her words properly. It’s annoying. I didn’t care for her performance.
Kady: More Heart! I love Magic Man. But alas, Kady doesn’t have the vocals to carry off this classic rock and roll hit of the 70’s. Too bad. That said, I thought she did one sexy good job at the attempt. She’s the Haley of this year.
Asia’h: All By Myself, Eric Carmon. I knew she wouldn’t be able to hit those up front high notes. To me it began as a disaster, until she nailed that big high note and held it. Good job.
My picks for going home: Amanda and maybe Kady. Whatcha think?
