Adam: It’s hard to believe it has been a year since Philip Philips rocked our pajamas off with “Home,” but it has. It feels like it’s been almost that long since our last Idol Chat. Are you ready for this business, baby? I mean Beth?
I think I’m ready. I’ve got my pajamas buttoned up tight and a nice tall drink. Let’s do this.
Adam: Okay, so Kree started it off with a little Sarah McLachlan, minus the sad images of abandoned puppies. More like Sarah McROCKlan, because Kree rocked that puppy. Understated, for once. That really kind of kicked ass. Great way to start for Kree, I say.
It’s interesting to me that you liked it because I felt it was a bit boring and by a bit I mean A LOT. I’m also interested in what the judges have to say about it except not really. Adam, don’t tell anyone I said this but I think Nikki looks pretty tonight. shhh….
Candice is singing “Chasing Pavement.” I love that she has that Jill Scott vibe when she sings, her voice is just incredible but I was not blown away, by any means. Although, her boots? THEY FANCY.
Adam: But I’m not sure they were made for walking. Anyway, I’m just so disappointed that we’re at my floor. I hate to step off this elevator. Its music is oh so pretty. Oh, wait . . . that was Candice? Oh. Hmm. Okay. Also, Mariah. Beyond what, you raving pile of done?
Adam: In the second round, Kree hit us with “All Cried Out,” which I believe is an original song. I won’t comment on the song itself other than to say that it seemed to expose the weaknesses in Kree’s voice, even though I actually liked the way she expressed herself vocally. Other than the whole, you know, pitch thing.
You are a smart, smart fellow. I could not agree more. Maybe her ears were broken? Or maybe OUR ears are broken? Either way. I need ice cream.
Candice is singing “I am beautiful.” I think it’s so unfair to Kree and Candice that the best original song EVER went to Phillip Phillips last year. Too bad for them. I didn’t hate that song but I did not fall in love with it.
Adam: I agree, and I kind of think they should have abandoned the original song category this time based on that premise. Too much to live up to. This was a complete yawner. I guess the performance was fine. I’ve already forgotten it.
On to Kree III. She’s singing a Patty Griffin song, which is always a good choice, even when not in the shower. It was good. Not great. I really really really love the song, and I only really really liked the performance. Still. Very nice. I don’t know if it’s championship-quality, but it was nice.
I agree with you AND Randy. It was very nice and definitely her best performance of the night. But I’m not sure that’s saying too much.
Candice is performing “I Have Nothing,”now here’s a performance that actually grabbed my attention. Even the Coke-inspired stage graphics didn’t annoy me because I enjoyed this performance so much. Well done. Great way to end the show.
Adam: That? Was the sound of winning.
