American Idol Anyone?
I know, I know, I said I wasn’t going to watch this year, call me fickle, but I changed my mind. And glad I did!
It has been the one indulgence I have allowed myself during yet another deadline show down. AI, oh and Castle.
While I have very personal reasons for not liking Jennifer Lopez, I think she has fit right in. Steven Tyler? Love him! What I love most about him is that he gets right in there with the talent, sings with them, pushes them, and isn’t afraid to laugh at himself. Randy has slipped into the senior sage role and it suits him. That said, I’d give anything to have Simon back. I really miss him.
So, for those of you following, as you know, last night was the 12 men. Right off the bat, I can tell you I do not like Clint. At. All. Not after what he did to Jaycee during Hollywood week. I was really bummed when Clint did so well last night. Based on performance, he deserves to stay, based on his personality he should have gone Hollywood week. But that’s just me.
I thought James was good, and you gotta love Scotty’s voice, but for me this year, it’s all about Paul. I love his quirky rough voice. He’s animated and just has fun with it.
I was confused by some of the judges’ reactions to a few of the performances. I know Simon would have lit them up, but all of the judges seemed to pretty much like all of it last night while I found several performances hard on the ears.
I’m looking forward to the ladies tonight. A few of my faves didn’t make it, but there is enough talent to make up for it. And I have to agree with what everyone is saying, this year the talent pool is tops. Amazingly good.
Who are your faves this year?
