Congratulations go out to David… Continue reading Season 7 Finale
Well, my dear American Idol fans, the season is coming swiftly to a close, and here we are at what might be one of the most exciting finale’s of AI history. The two boys go head to head in what might have been a knock down drag out, but what ended up as a good old fashioned butt whoopin’, complete with the out of control judges totally taking sides.
Let’s start by talking theme. Is it just me or did they take the boxing metaphor just a little too far??? Oh, but I’m glad they got this one right… yes, David Archuleta is “…weighing in at around 100 lbs.”
But lets look past the stupid intro, and to things that really matter, like our Judges… Paula is bedazzled tonight (like Monday’s microphone), and Simon is (yet again) baring a bit too much chest… just slightly inappropriate for a man his age.
Now to some reviews of actual singing… Continue reading Top 2 Reviewed
Ok. First order of business… Mayor Snar from Murray City, UT, what is up with the circa 1923 moustache? Second, way too cheesy product placement with the iPhones getting TXT messages from the judges.
And now to the reviews:
This is an open invitation/opportunity for you (you know who you are) to react and pay tribute to Jason Castro’s EXPULSION from American Idol last night.
I will just say with 58.67% certainty that he is on drugs. He openly admitted his brain was fried [by drugs] on national television. Didn’t he ever see the commercial with the egg and the frying pan?
Then he made up completely different words to the song he was supposed to sing on the play out. He didn’t even want to sing it – he wanted to run off the stage like the little girl he is.
Jason was unique and showed promise early, but in the end I don’t think he ever really wanted it.
Good bye our pointy eared Legolas friend. We’ll see you back in Rowlett soon!
In other news, AI will be returning David Archuleta to his hometown, Murray Utah, this week. My mom (and aunts and uncles) went to David A’s high school back when they were the Murray High “Smelterites” rather than the “Spartans”. That was because there used to be a huge brick smelter in Murray.
I just can’t wait!
Paula seems to be trying extra hard tonight to not make stupid comments. Did she get writers? Perhaps she’s been coached this week. Was that an ear piece I saw in her ear? Maybe someone just swapped out her Coke cup right before taping… yeah, that’s it.
But she was still up and dancing like a drunken… la dee da dee da.
Also, was it just me or was the audio mix totally off? I couldn’t hear the band at all…
To the reviews…
I had to record American Idol last night and watched it super-late again. When I tried to pull up the recording, at first it didn’t appear. I about had a complete and total meltdown… a total fit. it’s been a rough little while in the WhiteEyebrows world, and this certainly didn’t help… at all!
Then, as if the heavens opened and someone smiled down upon me, the recording magically appeared and magically worked!
Can I just say that I am so incredibly excited for Neil Diamond night!! I think Neil Diamond is perhaps one of the most incredible singer/songwriter and all-around good guys who exist. Why are all of today’s super-talented people complete freaks? Why can’t they just be normal like Neil Diamond and Paul Simon? Sure his music can be a little one-dimensional and void of different flavors, but it is still classic.
Now to the review…
All I can say is, how did all these girls make it through to this round?!?! There are two girls still up there who do not belong at this stage of the competition. If a boy goes tonight, I will be truly shocked.
Into the breach…
Tonight was a slightly disappointing night given the complete liberty the contestants had. Perhaps this actually shows that either 1) they really don’t know who they are as artists yet (even though they are infinitely more talented than last year’s group), or 2) they are just total idiots.
Let’s dig in.
What can you say about Dolly Parton?
I think Brooke White summed it up: Dolly Parton is this “tiny woman” who is just… … … “huge.”
And she is. Every once in a while I had to pause it just to make sure she wasn’t ‘resting’ on the piano. (she must have the world’s strongest back)
In today’s reviews, I have taken the creative liberty of offering some book deals to the contestants. We’ll see if I am contacted about any of them.
And now for the reviews:
