How…can I say thanks….for the time all of you have spent with me this American Idol season. It has been so much fun. With three contestants left, I will only blog about American Idol ONE MORE TIME after this post.
Wipe the tears.
Let’s get started.
David A. – And So It Goes – Beautiful acapella. Not everyone can sing Acapella, or as we choral people like to call it, Acapulco. Yes, I’m giggling a tad as I reminisce about my days in the choir. Little David has done a tremendous job on this song. Paula did a great job choosing this song.
Syesha – If I Ain’t Got You – WHAT….A….DRESS. Glory. She’s gorgeous and has a stunning voice. Got me some goose bumps, y’all. Got me some goose bumps. Chris Beall got goose bumps and she’s never given him goose bumps.
David C. – First Time Ever I Saw Your Face – Dang. The boy can even sing Roberta Flack. Hello. And look. His momma is standing up in the crowd. She’s so proud of her baby boy. Holy cow. What a note at the end. More goose bumps, more goose bumps, we have more goose bumps, people. And even a teary eye from the Mr. in the house.
David A. – With You – He did a nice job and sounded really good. But he is definitely a ballad guy and will give give Josh Groban a run for his money one day.
Syesha – Fever – She sang well, but it was just ah’ight for me. However, methinks that Ricky Minor likes Syesha. Who wouldn’t. Look at those legs. She’s prih-tee sexy. (And I mean that in the most heterosexual way possible.) VERY nice ending to the song. Beautiful note.
David C. – Dare You To Move – First of all, the song choice is AWESOME. Now about the singing…it was great until he hit the chorus. He went up and stayed up and got a little pitchy. It wasn’t his best by any means.
David A. – Longer – Now Dan Fogelberg knew what he was doing when he wrote this song. The lyrics are just so sweet. David is doing a nice job because it is, after all, a ballad. And we know that David and the ballads are good friends. Pretty, pretty note at the end. Just loverly.
Chasing Rabbit #1 – Simon didn’t like the lyrics of the above song. I’d expect that. They are ooey and gooey and romantic and not to judge, but I think that Simon may not have experienced anything like this before. I’m just sayin’.
Syesha – Hit Me Up – She is cute and did an okay job. It seemed a little tough for her to sing since it’s such a fast song. She just didn’t seem like she was in her element with that song.
David C. – Don’t Wanna Close My Eyes – Oh my gosh! Y’all know I just blogged about this song this week. I’m getting all sappy thinking about the Hubby right now. Okay, back to David. Wow. I love the strings behind him. Nice touch. Okay, here comes the chorus. He’s building. Get ready. Here we go…………….I don’t wanna close my eyes, don’t wanna fall asleep cuz I’d miss ya baby, and I don’t wanna miss a thang. Ahh… And I’m singin’ right with him. uh-MAY-zing. Period. End of story. That’s all she wrote. And scene.
The Beall’s predict that the finale will be…
