The Beall’s thoughts….LIVE! Theme: The Year They Were Born Ramiele Malubay (1987) – Alone? By Heart? Hmmm. Poor thing was extremely off pitch on a LOT of notes. She should have dropped the song a step and would have been better off. Jason Castro (1987) – He brought the guitar back. Good call. His performance was a bit boring for us, but we’d kinda like to listen to him on a beach in CancÃºn. Simon’s advice was right on. Even Noah thinks he needs more energy. His words exactly. Syesha Mercado (1987) – The girl can sing. I don’t know if she’s got the likability factor but she has some talent. Y’all know I’ve been a fan of hers all along. Chikezie (1985) – Okay, now that was sexy. Oh, stop it. Y’all know you were thinkin’ the same thing. He has a really nice voice whether it’s his upper or lower register. Watch out Peabo Bryson and Luther Vandross. Brooke White (1983) – Ah, she looks so pretty. Love her hair. I really like her. Her performance? Well, it’s was just alright for us. Michael Johns (1978) – That boy had the whole band clappin’! Even Ricky Minor! That’s just craziness. Okay, the boy finally found his song. That was hot. Smokin’. Carly Smithson (1983) – I think she’s mad at me. Did you see that face? Wow. I don’t know that I’d hold her tight if I was a guy. I’m just sayin’. I thought she did good until the very end. What kind of ending was that? David Archuleta (1990) – I can’t believe out of all the songs from 1990 that he chose that one. I mean, I KNOW George Strait recorded something that year. Please. David is adorable and can really sing, but he needs a little help in the song choice department. We didn’t like this performance at all. Kristy Lee Cook (1984) – SHO do like her shirt. I might get one. Wait, I can’t. Not sure if it’ll cover up my front butt. Okay, the song choice…choosing a patriotic song is what they tell you to do in pageants. This ain’t Miss America. Anyway, the girl was pitchy in a HUGE way. We disagree with the judges. We think it was a LIH-tle cheesy. But what do we know 🙂 David Cook (1982) – Holy cow. HE IS BRILLIANT. We’ve never seen a risk taker like him when it comes to arrangements. Holy cow. Holy cow. I voted for him eight times. Yes I did. BEST PERFORMANCE OF THE ENTIRE NIGHT! On a side note: Paula, what in the world are you trying to say? We’re thinkin’ that Ramiele will go home.
