It’s Bid-ness Time

You know, I’m really starting to think that the guys on AI got it goin’ on this year. I think there are some girls with great talent, but I feel quite certain that a guy will be the next American Idol. Oh, and please go back and say American Idol again with the emphasis on MER just like Ryan Seacrest. You know that’s some good fun. The Guys! Overall, we were fairly pleased with the performances. How could we not be? Hello? 1980’s? That’s what I thought. I loved the 80’s. Absolutely loved them. Except for the puffed up bangs I used to sport with my bright blue eye liner accompanied with white eye shadow. Oh yes I did. We really loved the performance by David Cook. Lionel Richie would be proud. What a terrific arrangement. Michael Johns picked a really great song and let’s face it, we’ll be watching him on stage some day. He’s just good and looks like a natural up there. Jason Castro seems to have the judges favor. He’s a little on the dreamy side if you can get past his dreads. Unless you are a dreads kind of gal. AND he’s from Rockwall, Texas. Who doesn’t love Rockwall, Texas?! David Hernandez is a standout to me. I really like his voice. Not sure if he can win the whole thing, but I think he’ll go far. Our sweet, little David Archuleta did a good job but was actually having a few pitch problems. Do my ears deceive me? I didn’t think that child could hit a wrong note. But, all in all, he’s still a remarkable performer and singer. He could sing the yellow pages and probably make it to the finale. Danny Noriega. What in the world can I say about him? Dare I tell you that he is starting to grow on me? Just a little, but hopefully I’ll get over that 🙂 His performance was not amazing, not awful. Just alright. Chikezie is NOT giving up, is he? Does anyone else think he sounds like Luther Vandross? Of course we cannot forget Luke Menard. Even though the judges weren’t too keen on his rendition of Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go, Chris and I thought it was a perfect song choice for him. The Girls! Overall the girls were better than last week. Best performances of the night goes to Brooke White and Ramiele Malubay. Both chose great songs. Brooke doesn’t have a powerhouse of a voice, but she’ll sell some CD’s with it. I’d buy one. Ramiele couldn’t have chosen a better song. Love me some Phil Collins. My two least favorite contestants are Amanda Overmeyer and Carly Smithson. I guess everyone truly does have their opinion. The judges think Carly is all that and quite frankly, I’m kinda bored with her. Amanda actually did good by choosing a Joan Jett song but Chris and I are just over that whole rock ‘n roll gig she’s got goin’ on. But that’s just us. I’m a big fan of Syesha Mercado. Not saying she’ll win the whole thing but I just like her. I also felt this way about Jennifer Hudson. Remember her? Yeah, she’s at home watching AI with her Oscar. Poor thang. Kristy Lee Cook’s little country spin on Journey’s hit might have secured her a spot in the Top 12. Kady Malloy just doesn’t have favor with the judges. She’s not my favorite either but she can sing. Asia’h Epperson seemed a little on the nasal side tonight. And the outfit? Hmmm. The Beall’s prediction? The top six guys will be: David Cook, Jason Castro, Michael Johns, David Archuleta, Danny Noriega and David Hernandez. We think we’ll say goodbye to Chikezie and Luke Menard. The top six girls will be: Syesha Mercado, Carly Smithson, Amanda Overmeyer, Ramiele Malubay, Brooke White and Kristy Lee Cook. We’ve probably heard Asia’h Epperson and Kady Malloy for the last time. But who really ever knows, right?

  1. Although I agree that the public is not too keen with Chekezie, I just can’t stand Danny – yes decent voice, but I feel like I’m watching a girl (why am I the only one saying this on your site?). I think Asia’h is staying tonight and Kristi is going. Just sayin’. As for Luke’s song being perfect for him, that’s exactly why he’s going, too.

  2. David was apparently sick with strep and could hardly speak after the show. Notice the thick scarf around his neck on girls’ night?

    He’s still perfect–! just not, you know, with a virus…

  3. I’m soooo addicted to AI. Just so you know, Mr. David Cook actually worked in Tulsa, OK… yep Tulsa before going on AI. If you watched some the auditions, it actually said OK. I really like the guys and I’m not so fond of the girls. It just seems the guys have a much stronger voices and more talent…. as Cindy’s sez… I’m just sayin!

  4. Okay, Raf. You get the props for Danny’s boot. I was actually surprised to see him go. I figured he had a lot of voters out there.

    But, YOU have to give me props for getting 3 out of 4 right. I know, I know. It’s a gift 🙂

  5. 3 out of 4 is very good! I only got 2 out of 4 in our work game. I think Danny was a surprise for a lot of people since he kind of has the Sanjaya look going on. I figured he’d grab some votes because of that and hang in at least a couple weeks more.

  6. You mentioned about Jason Castro’s dreads. I didn’t know if you knew or not, but Eric got this idea and decided to grow his hair out so he could have dreads. He ended up doing them and had them for about 2 years. You know Eric!

    He cut them off just this past winter and he looks “normal” again! 🙂

    If you want to see what he looked like with them let me know and I will email you a pic.
