EDIT: 

THE GALS… 

Sorry, no time to comment individually on the girls, but man there were some great performances… really impressed with Melinda, Lakisha, and Gina…

if i had to pick 2 to go, i’d pick Haley and Antonella as they are both kind of like skittish little chipmonks trying to keep up with lionesses…  unfortunately i think Antonella (geesh, how hard was it for her to come up with a secret talent that didn’t take place in the bedroom?) will stay and either Gina or Sabrina will hit the road…

as for the guys, since i didn’t pick yesterday, Sundance and Phil… Sanjaya should obviously, but i’m not holding my breath…

BREAKING NEWS ABOUT K-OS

– K-OS is featured in the latest issue of Relevant Magazine

– K-OS grew up as a Jehovah’s Witness, explored Eastern mysticism in college and then reverted to JW after exploring his faith.

– i’m probably not supposed to like him any more, but he’s still making some of the best music out there right now and i do still like him…

CALL NOW AND VOTE FOR IDOL ZERO-WHA?

haven’t commented much on AI yet this year, so here… i have a chance and i’m taking it…

  • Blake: clear favorite for me, dude brings energy and, yes, exactly a CURRENT sound… i love me some Motown, but come on yo, it’s 2007 and you’re supposed to be selling albums to us, not 8-tracks to them…of course it’s 311… how could the judges not know that
  • Sanjaya: ugh… please… John Mayer is NOT one of the origianl members of the Jackson 5, please don’t sing his songs in the key of the Bee Gees… darn vote for the worst and all the other sites that keep this guy afloat… HA… Paula hairstyle…
  • Sundance: a faux-hawk, really? good grief that is not a Pearl Jam song… this is another guy that has no business being in this competition still… i may be completely missing the boat, but i haven’t once been impressed with him… and tonight is no different… here’s the thing: Brad Stine is not funnier when he yells and Sundance isn’t a better singer when he yells…
  • Chris R: ok… not too bad… not the best, but well, actually… yeah, no, i liked Blake better, but clearly Chris belongs here… he’s doing his thing and it works… he makes som funny faces though…
  • Jared, Mistah Cah-tear!: the Jared Cotter/John Travolta Face-Off… anyone else remember that movie? Why do guys feel the need to ruin perfectly good Stevie Wonder songs? (on the flipside – Girls/Whitney)… i just wouldn’t do that… besides dating yourself… here’s the thing… i love listening to classic jams like this on vinyl (who doesn’t, right?)… but this is like listening to classic on vinyl that’s been sitting in the hot garage and is now warped and covered with chips and dust… pass…(ps. Cliff Huxtable called, he wants his sweater back)
  • Brandon: okay, i’ve totally been waiting for this dude to shine… i KNOW that he’s got some hot vocals in him somewhere… he just hasn’t shown ANY talent the previous weeks… not sure how he’s made it so far… i’d have taken AJ over him last week to be honest… today i’ll give him points for energy and his voice wasn’t too, too bad… but yeah, the end fell apart… that’s not a good place to fall apart… start strong, finish strong… if you’re going to blow it, blow it in the middle… (ps. did Simon call him Travis?)
  • Phil the Helmet: i’m supposed to like this guy because he went to Lee University… and up until now, i haven’t disliked him… he’s always seemed a bit on the showtunes side for my tastes… and i like showtunes… who’d have figured that a LeAnn Rimes song would be too low for him to register? he sounded like Cher hopped up on cough medicine… ps. Fieval called, he wants his hat back
  • Chris, Sloppy Fro: oh no he didn’t… ok, i love Toby, but no one’s ever accused him of being a good vocalist until Chris Sligh just sang this dcTalk song… that was a really bad song choice and that performance was not good either… ok, mushmouth, stop talking… this is why i really don’t like Chris as the next American Idol… do we really need someone who’s this much in love with himself making third rate records on the biggest stage?… Simon says, “you’ve done what you need to get to the finals” that’s right, you managed to compete the year that none of the guys are all that impressive…

    Bottom Line: not a big fan of too much that the guys bring to the table this year, with the exception of Blake and i’m sure that a large part of that is that he has flair…

    okay, back to work…

    peace… love… bdg…
