American Idol: Top 7 Week – 4/15/2008

Ladies and gentlemen, Randy Jackson is in the house and has given his first standing O of the season! I thought it was an overall good show, for the guys, but the girls needed to step it up. They sang ‘alright,’ but it wasn’t hot when you compare it with the guys. With Michael Johns gone, the dudes stepped it up to show what they can do.

I thought… wait a second… let’s just get on with the reviews:

Leading off, David Archuleta did a dang good job with his song. We heard his falsetto for the first time, and I’ve gotta say, it was well-placed. You could say he brought down the house, but he was the first singer. All of the judges thought that he just threw down the gauntlets for the other contestants. I gave him a 9.9 for the night.

American Idol: Top 8 Week – 4/8/2008

This week’s performance show can be summed up with this question:

What is Randy Jackson smoking nowadays?

Usually the nice guy who usually agrees with Paula, but liked to mention being pitchy in parts, he has been downright grumpy on some hawt performances the last two weeks. What gives, Randy? He’s been no harsh, he’s making Simon look like a doll.

First off for the night, Michael Johns rocked the joint and it was HAWT, I don’t give a darn what Randy had to say about the singing, the performance, or anything. I’m downloading that song on iTunes ASAP. I give him a 10.0 for the night. [Read more…]

American Idol Top 9 Results Show

Yesterday’s prediction:

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

What can I say? When you’re right, you’re right. I don’t think that Kristy Lee Cook was in the bottom for any reason other than how bad she’s sucked in the past, but her last two weeks were better than Jason Castro, IMHO.

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
