In a Word . . . American Idol

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:

Amanda-- predictable

Brooke-- awkward

Syesha-- cleavage!

Ramiele-- yawn

David Cook-- cool

David Archuleta-- soothing

Jason-- boring

Chikezie-- delightful

Kristy Lee--inconsistent

Michael-- lackluster

Carly-- capable

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....

I think we should start a petition demanding the judges keep THEIR observations to just one word, too! :) But then there would probably be 28 more minutes of commercials! (yikes)

Love your efficient recap of this week's AI.

agree 100% with your review. and i also agree with stacey...the judges need to wrap it up! (especially paula "blah, blah, blah, blah) :-)

LOVE your recap, girl! :)
I really, really like Kristy and I want her to stay and blow us away. I actually loved her song last night but, to fit the theme apparently, her performance was boring.

I agree!! LOL about the definitely was over the top-no pun intended! hahahaha

I too was disappointed about another week of about a little variety!?

You got it right on the cleavage! Unfortunately, there seems to be a pattern with the girls, if your voice isn't cutting it, show a little cleavage. I bet Brooke will never stoop to that!!

I'm finding your review a little late, but I still haveh to say - I totally agree with you on the Beatles! There may be one or two songs that I like, but I don't get all the hullaballoo, seriously.

I'll be sure to check in on you for your comments about next week.

I watched just to see David Archuleta. Wouldn't a John Denver week be cool? WE could hear Annie's song and Calypso and even Grandma's feather bed!
