By this time, you probably know that Curtis Finch Jr. was voted off American Idol last week. I have to admit, I was very surprised and very disappointed. I loved him and I was looking forward to hearing him sing the different themes put before him. There is a “save” this season, but as usual, all four judges have to agree and they didn’t so bye, bye Curtis.
This week the remaining nine contestants sing John Lennon/Paul McCartney songs. I’m betting that many of my young bloggers don’t know very many of those songs! This was also true for some of the young contestants, making it harder for them.
Standing out this week for me was Candice Glover. I like that she can sing whatever is put before her. She has great range and is very professional.
Having a very bad week was my darling Lazaro Arbos. I love this guy, but me thinks he’s in over his head! Communication has to be a big issue for him. He always seems extremely nervous on stage–notice the sweat? I want him to succeed so much, but…
I’m sitting here and it’s Thursday morning. I write the blog in the morning after watching the show the night before. I like to do it this way because then I can let my mind tell me who stood out and who didn’t. If I don’t remember the performance then I know it wasn’t memorable, right?
I remember the judges loved Kree and Janelle. I’ve said this all along, they don’t do anything for me. I know they are both very talented women, but I don’t see me buying their music or attending their concert. To each his own…as they say!
I still love Burnell Taylor, but I really wish he’d stop with the hands. Would I buy his music? I’m not sure yet.
Of all the contestants, I think Amber Holcomb has the best chance of success. She’s young, pretty and talented. I do look forward to hearing her sing each week.
Everyone loves Angie Miller right? Why? What does she have that we haven’t seen a hundred other times on American Idol? Please, tell me because I don’t know if I just have a personal thing about this girl or what.
I was all excited about hearing Paul Jolley sing last night after seeing his time with Jimmy Iovine. I was surprised that it wasn’t as good as I thought it would be. Paul Jolley is in trouble IMO, but of course what the heck do I know? They sent home Curtis last week and I didn’t see that coming!
I gave my 50 votes to Devin Velez. I want to do everything in my power to keep this guy in the competition. I like his versatility. I sure hope he doesn’t get lost in the shuffle!
So, that’s it for this week. I’m going to just write one blog a week, so you have to Google who goes home tonight. I’m off to check out last week’s comments. Keep ‘em coming! Bloggergal
