American Idol Season 8 Top 10 Post-Show

picture-29Wow, what a suckfest of a start to the show last night. We ended up going to bed last night after the 6th performance and watching the rest this morning. The difference between the two sets of singers was striking because when they showed the recap at the end of the show, we didn’t really have any recollection of them as we were watching the last 4: Lil, Adam, Danny, and Allison.

I had some major disappointments with some styles and the execution of some of them, namely Megan Joy’s “who the heck possessed her body for those 2 minutes?” and Michael Sarver’s shaky-quaky hand and body movements inside every beat of the song making it look like he was having a seizure. I won’t even go into how Lil Round was supposed to dominate because that would be racist to expect a black person to blow it outta da box on Motown night, wouldn’t it? Yeah. Didn’t stop them from saying it, though. Racists. 😀

Adam, Danny, and Allison are for sure Top 3 material, and the rest can try to duke it out for #4, but it doesn’t matter, because no one else will win it with those 3 in the running. Kris and Matt, “dude” you guys blew, and not outta da box. Scott wasn’t far behind in the “wanna go home” category and Megan completely self-destructed by tossing her unique voice in the garbage and shouting the whole thing at 120 beats per minute. Her rehearsal with Smoky got me looking forward to hers and she figuratively jumped off a bridge.

I’m going with Megan going home, with Michael in a close second. It is all up to sex appeal and fanbase at this point for those two. Kris could go at any time, but I think those two might have saved him this week unless they have more fans than I’m accounting for.
