American Idol: Top 9 Week – 4/1/2008

Last night, Simon was in quite a funk and dissing everyone left and right. You could visibly see the stab to Carly Smithson’s heart as he made a rude remark about her clothing style.

I was pretty tired and didn’t take notes, so I’ll just tell you how things were.

The bottom 3 will be Ramiele Malubay, Brooke White, and Jason Castro.

The best of the night were Carly (9.2), David Cook (9.4), Michael Johns (9.6), David Archuleta (9.9), and Sayesha Mercado (10.0).

I don’t give a darn that her song was different from Whitney’s (Whip Me Houston) version. I liked it because, while the notes were different from what I expected, they were very pleasing. Given enough time, I could forget Whip Me’s version. It was HAWT!

Ramiele looked like a scared little girl who wants her mommy, and I think that’s how her performance came across. She seemed to be channeling Jason Castro’s mannerisms when Ryan came over and she answered his questions. Brooke is downright pissing me off with her agreeability and interrupting the judges with her agreements to their criticism! Shut up and listen and try to look pretty, not pitiful. Jason is just cruising… coasting, really. He needs to step it up.

My prediction: Ramiele Malubay
