Well, tonight we saw some fabulous performances, and the heir apparent, crash and burn. But before the show really got underway, I was thinking how nice it was not to have to see Danny’s nasty eye-rolls and sneers. Good riddance. Again. I did find Ryan’s baiting of Simon tiresome, and quite frankly, Simon should have told Paula to shut up four years ago. He doesn’t interrupt them, why do they feel they cannot let the man has his say?
Tonight’s theme was McCartney & Lennon songs. There were a few stellar performances.
Syesha was not one of them. She sang, Got To Get You Out of My Life. She needed to get off the stage. I was yawning. Really. Randy agreed, Paula used way too many words to say, meh, and Simon? I was surprised he liked it as much as he did.
Chikezie: Best performance of the night. He sang, She’s a Woman. I totally dug his performance. I sat on the edge of my seat and rocked along with him. He was having too much fun, and I smiled the entire time. I really loved the way Ryan kept it going. And like the Dawg said, “Who knew?” Chick smashed it! I was happy Simon agreed. But seriously, how could he not? I forget what Paula mumbled.
Ramiele: Man is she petite or what? In My Life. I love that song, and I thought she did okay. She has a good voice. Solid, but well, booorrrrriiiing. Randy agreed, Paula Poo-La-La said her requisite, “You look really pretty.” And what else I don’t remember, and of course, the Simonizer was brutally honest.
Jason: If I Feel. LOVED IT!! Not as much as last week, but I’m sorry this kid has got it! I totally one thousand percent disagreed with Randy. Paula Poo-Poo agreed with Karin, and Simon? Dude, did we watch and hear the same performance?
Carly: Come Together: and oh baby did she. Wow wee. I totally dug it. She really has a strong, vibrant voice. She was kind of shouting a little bit there at the end but I didn’t mind. Randy said: confident. Stellar. The chick next to him agreed, and Yay! So did the Simonizer.
David C: Eleanor Rigby. I have never liked this song. It depresses me, but I have to say David rocked it out. (I did have an ewww moment though when they showed him working at the bar and he was wearing that ugly metallic nail polish on chewed down nails. Gross. Gross. Gross.) So back to his performance: I thought he sounded great. I really like his gravely voice. Randy agreed. As did PP, and Simon used the B word again. It’s like getting a 10 in the Olympics.
Brooke: Let it Be. I thought she was going to just come across boring. But the girl has heart. It showed. I loved the last part where she got jiggy with it. Good job. The Dawg is a fan, Paula? Shaking my head. And Go Simon!
David H: I Saw Her Standing There: I see you standing toplees behind a bar. Buh-bye. All three judges agreed with moi. Ciao, David H, it was nice while it lasted.
Amanda: Looked really cool. She sang, You Can’t Do That, a song I love. But quite frankly, as I sat there and watched and listened, I wasn’t sure how I felt. Her performance came across discombobulated to me. My son said she was annoying. I really tried to listen. But at the end, I just didn’t care for it. Randy and Paula dug it, and I have to agree with Simon, especially about the word slurring.
Michael: Across the Universe. Started a wee bit slow for me, bit I really enjoyed it. I really enjoy him. Good job! I thought it was much better than what the Dawg said, Paula agreed with Karin, and while Simon did make sense, I really liked it.
Kristi: 8 Days a Week: Yowch! Did. Not. Like. It. I just wanted to her to stop! Buh-bye. Randy? Was too nice. Paula took more time and more stutters to get out, “I didn’t like it.” then anyone else on the planet would have. Simon? Horrendous? Dolly Parton on helium? Cringe. Truth hurts.
David A: We Can Work It Out. Honey you need to work it out all right. I now pronounce the David Archuletta Idol Show officially over! First of all, the boy needs to man up. Is it me or are the Idols this year a bunch of girls? So, bad song, bad performance, and he flubbed his lines repeatedly. What a mess. The kid cracked. He sounded like a wounded animal. The Dawg says, “Not on point.” Karin says, “That’s an understatement.” Paula Poo-Poo said, blah blah blah, and Simon? Used my words, “A mess.” I felt bad for the kid. But he needed some humble pie. Better luck next week, coz as bad as it was, he will be around.
So, I am totally sure David H and Kristi are his-tor-ee.
