I could talk about AI all day but I'm going to see if I can keep it to one word for each contestant's performance this week. You know, to make it interesting...unlike last night's show:
David Cook-- cool
David Archuleta-- soothing
It really was a snoozer of a show. I am not a Beatles fan, y'all. I don't NOT like them, that's just never been music that I've listened to on purpose. So, I was mighty disappointed when I heard we were being treated to a SECOND week of Beatles songs.
And, as much as I do not care for her style, I agree wholeheartedly with Amanda when she responded to Paula's suggestion of doing a ballad. She said she wants people to get a taste of what she would be like in concert. I couldn't agree more. Ruben Studdard was a big, cute teddy bear of a guy but when his album came out there was nothing on there I was happy about spending money on. Sure I'd love to see John Denver week on Idol... but that's just not ever going to be the style of most of the folks on there.
Bottom line: Lots o' talent this year... but no one is blowing me away yet. We shall see....
