Alright, so far I’ve watched three girls give amazing performances and each girl I thought “wow, such beautiful, unique voices. Who the crap are these girls?” I can’t decide if it’s a good thing or a bad thing that Idol only focuses on a select group from the very beginning.
Clint is back, his white glasses are off and he’s back to the whole Where’s Waldo look which is interesting to me because who wants to look like Where’s Waldo? Well, Clint, that’s who! And he sounded good which is annoying because he dissed on my boy Jacee. But that’s okay because Jacee was all like “What? I don’t neeeed you, fool.“
Carson Higgins – singing My Perogative he’s a crazy guy, I like his energy and stage presence but does he have a really good voice? I don’t think he does. Does he? He does? Does he? Adam, help me with this? At least agree with me that you don’t like his hair, okay?
Chris Medina – singing My Perogative. We all know and love Chris and will do anything to make sure he gets through, he sang an acoustic version of the same song, his clip was very short, I did notice some hand motions and drum tapping that would probably be cool but they looked awkward and his hair desperately needs to be thinned out and toned down. Am I right, Adam? His hair is like “WHOA.HAIR.”
Just so you know, hair is really important and what America is really thinking about, this is why I keep talking about hair.
Tonight I am particularly grateful that they allow contestants to play instruments. Last night, the show was soooooo slow and it seemed to take forever for anything to happen and tonight’s show is much faster paced and I can’t keep up so if it seems like I’m jumping all over the place, please forgive, it’s Idol’s fault. And the half gallon of Thin Mint ice cream I just ate.
Casey is going to be playing the stand up bass. Is there a real name for this? Like the Bassibone. The Gigantibass. The Trombass. Oh wait. It IS just called the stand up bass. Really, I quit band in eighth grade which was probably not a good idea. Adam, can you guess what instrument I played? Hint: it was NOT the Trombass.
Oh man. CASEY ABRAMS and his dog-gone voice. He just sounds amazing. AMAZING. UUUHHHHMMAAAAAYYYZING. Standing ovation from me. You know, if I were to get up off my couch.
Lauren from Georgia is singing “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” and here’s what I have to say about her performance. I love her hair and her eyes. The end.
And now Jacob Lusk is on stage. We remember him from last night, Adam predicted big things from him and I, being the connoisseur of music wondered if he was having a stroke. Well, I do agree with Adam, his voice is sick. But can’t.watch.him.perform. Ears say “oh, yeah, babe.” Eyes says “OHMYGODNO.” He hurriedly leaves the stage, emotionally spent.
John Wayne Schulz proves something very important. Most men are seriously SEXY with a cowboy hat on. I mean, c’mon now, cowboy. You WEAR that hat. (sorry, Adam. Needed to be said.)
And look! The train is stopping at Crazy Town, the birth place of Ashley, the crazy-eyed girl. You guys, I kid you not, Anna was watching this last night and said “what? I can’t believe she has a boyfriend.” Oh man, she is forgetting the lyrics and yep, she’s crying again and yep, she’s still crazy!
And now Scotty is up. I realized today that Scotty is the perfect mixture of the Mad guy and Clay Aiken. That doesn’t mean I don’t like him because I do, but seriously. It’s Mad Aiken. Oh my gosh, I am dying at the lyrics that the contestants are making up. I hate the way Scotty is beating himself up. It’s okay Scotty, don’t beat yourself up. You’ve done tried yer hardest.
Also? Do you know long it takes me to learn lyrics to a song? Five years. I tell you no lies.
The excitement is building. All I know is that whoever is in the same room as Crazy Eyes, they may as well pack their bags there is no way she is going to go through. Adam, please tell me the judges won’t put her through.
And they put her through. Why. Adam? Why would they do that?
Room two is bad news. I wonder if the guy with the coat over his head is going to be pissed when he realizes that was J-Lo trying to hug on him.
And Room three is not good news, either. Poor room three.
Room Four is going through! (yay, Scotty, I mean, Mad Aiken!)
Next week: The Beatles and the Final 24.
Adam: 24? That’s too many! Can’t they cut more? I like 12. A dozen is nice.
See you next week.
