And it really wasn’t the idols. I’m in a meh mood and well, it carried on into my notes. My fil is having a risky procedure tomorrow and well, AI was not really a priority for me tonight. Oh, and I won’t be around to comment tomorrow until later. I’d really appreciate anyone who believes in the power of prayer to say a bunch for Larry tonight. And thanks in advance.
So here is my half-assed recap.
It was sing a song in the year you were born night.
Ramiele started off with, hell, I didn’t write it down, sorry, but I thought finally she belted something out. It was okay, but I’m not sure it was okay enough to get her to the next round. Randy has the creeping crude and mentioned Rami did as well. Paula sounded like a frog for a minute. And does anyone think a lowly germ can infect Simon the Great? Hell no! The man is bullet proof, and on that note, I was too reoccupied to jot down notes on this performance.
Jason sang? Never heard of the song, and while he needs to stretch musically and vocally, I enjoyed the performance. I just like his laid back goofy style. He isn’t in your face, he’s comfortable, a bit complex and enjoyable. Randy agreed. Paula Poo La La, said the same and, Yikes! Simon was right. Despite his right on comments, I still enjoyed it. Ding dong Jason didn’t get it. He thinks he needs to perfect the song not branch out.
Syesha: That baby cry thing was annoying! She sang, If I Was Your Woman? Okay, so I thought for her she sounded great, but the performance didn’t wow me. For me, kind of like that technically perfect contest entry. Perfect but not memorable. Randy agreed. Paula, blah blah blah. Simon, agreed 100%!
Chikezie sang, If Only For One Night. I liked his breakout stuff much better. But this wasn’t awful, just meh. Kind of like my mood tonight. That said, the performance had its moments. Randy asked, “Where’s the vibe, man?” I wondered too. Paula blah x 3. Simon, was right on.
Brooke sang, Every Breath You Take. I don’t care that she screwed up in the beginning. In fact it made her more adorable. I love this girl. She is my favorite. Randy wasn’t sure. Paula, blah, she enjoyed it, blah some more. Simon said the band screwed her. Hmm. Maybe. I liked it.
Michael sang, We Are Champions. Loved it. Love him. He perked me up. Well, actually Brooke did. Randy loved it. Paula blah x 3 but I agreed. Simon said Michael has star potential. Whoo hoo!
Carly sang, Bright Eyes. Good song choice. I liked the performance, but I’m thinking the judges may not be all warm and fuzzy about Carly. She isn’t my favorite as far as personalities go. Not sure why. But, I totally disagreed with Randy. More blah x 3 from Paula, but I did agree with some of the blahs. Simon wanted her to lighten up? I thought she looked fairly comfy up there. But what did I know?
David A sang? I wasn’t paying attention. But the voice for me in the beginning was off. Too low. But it picked up. He’s peaked. Others are passing him by. Not saying he isn’t good, he is, but he needs to streeeeetch. Overall, meh for me. I totally understood where Randy was coming from. Paula? Check. Simon? A theme park with little animated animals? How funny, but sadly, true. I liked it better then that but totally got his POV.
Kristy Lee. Surprise surprise surprise. Why you sly little minx you. Play to your strengths. Appeal to the heart of America then belt out their song. Wise choice. Her best performance so far. Randy said, “Very nice performance.” And he meant it. Paula said, “Your voice is sounding stronger.” Wow, what an observation. Simon said, “Your best performance by a mile.”
David Cook. David David David. What an intelligent performer you are. See? The man takes risks, breaks the rules, and breaks them right. Better then right, he blows them away. He has no freakin’ rules! I love Billie Jean. It’s one of my all time faves. He made it sound so damn soulful, gritty, and full of emotion, I forgot who Michael Jackson was. I was completely wowed by his performance. Once again I want his rendition.
Randy said, “Dude, you might be the one!” Paula, blown away, blah blah now shut up. Simon said, “That was a brave performance. Amazing.” I think he said amazing. Did he say amazing? I must have. He should have.
So there you have it. My half-assed version. I think it’s Ramiele or Syesha. Kristi has the heart of America vote this week.
And don’t forget to say a prayer for my fil.
