American Idol This Week

I enjoyed tonight's show so much more than last week!

David Cook, you ROCK and I am going to buy your album someday. The judges were right about his bravery. He completely changed Billie Jean by Michael Jackson into a cool rock song. I was totally impressed.

I also loved:

Carly Smithson--The judges were out to lunch with that one! I love "Total Eclipse of the Heart". It is an incredible song and she sang it perfectly. She is going to be a star.

Michael Johns--Wow, he finally did it! Queen songs are sooooo hard to sing and he nailed it! He has such a big voice.

Kristy Lee Cook--I can't believe I'm saying this but I really liked "country girl" this week. Last week I was saying "off with her head" and this week I think she deserves to stay. She sang "God Bless the USA" very convincingly. Her voice was very sweet and pretty.

Brooke White-- I still love her, mistakes and all. She must get really nervous up there and she sabotages herself. I think she's great though not to mention the fact that she looks and sings like an angel. She is luminous.

Who I did not like this week:

David Archuleta-- He has the most incredible voice and he wasted it on a cheesy, weird song that no one had ever heard before. I think I understand his heart in singing it though because he has sung several other songs about peace and making a difference in the world. I really admire that but there must have been a better song in 1990 to express it. Maybe not. I don't remember 1990 being the year of the deep and thoughtful song. I remember the Pretty Woman soundtrack and not much else. Here is a list of the top 100 songs of 1990. What song do you think he should have chosen? (Check it out! My link button actually worked!!!). Perhaps "Unskinny Bop" by Poison or "Ice Ice Baby" by Vanilla Ice. Those are deep songs, like for sure, right? Just so I maintain some shred of credibility here, I always hated those songs. Well, to be perfectly honest, Ice Ice Baby had it's moment in the sun for me but it was very short lived, I promise.

Jason Castro--like they said, good but not great.

Who will be voted off the show? It's a toss up between Chickezie, Ramiele and Syesha.

I wish I could voice my opinion as freely about the important things in life as I do about a TV show! Somehow I find it very difficult to express the things close to my heart.

Ah well! C'est la vie. I guess I'll save the depths of my soul for another day. ;)

I'm DEVASTATED right now. I'm on vacation and I FORGOT to watch AI last night. How did I do this!!!!?????

Thank goodness it is recorded at home....I'll just have to be patient until I get back to watch it.

Great summary. It almost feels like I watched it.

I'm glad you had a happy Easter. The house in the background is looking different. I'm excited to see how it has changed.
