First of all, let’s say that the show-the-end-at-the-beginnging flashback format was just exhausting. How many times did I have to look at the judges saying they were done sorting the photos? Boring! And why did they put through SO MANY who clearly didn’t deserve to survive the day!?! And Ryan talked way too much! I guess he has to earn his paycheck some how.
Someone get Simon on the phone for me! These things must be addressed!
That being said, this was the first time we got to see actual singing for a LONG time on this show. So I was able to pick out some of my favorites going into the next round.
The Bar Pianist Guy – Awesome voice
Anoop – Totally unexpected
Norman Gentle – I like Norman, hate Nick. See below…
Michael Sarver – Oil Rig Man
Ariana – we didn’t actually see her sing today, but she is really good. Trust me.
Oh, and the two guys who are friends, I like the white guy best. What’s his name? Like “Dorkey” or something like that.
Serious “Mahhh Wooman” Candidate
Lil Rounds – Serious Contender!
Jasmine Murray – Close second place! (She had a rough night tonight)
Totally Better Not Make It
Adam Lambert (the totally pretentious guy who was in Wicked in LA – he bugs!)
Tatiana – who BTW wore a moo moo sewed onto a halter top and totally is a drama victim!
Really Shouldn’t Go Through But Will
The Blind Dude – his vocals really aren’t that good
Nick Mitchell (aka Norman Gentle)
Nathanial (mr gay boy voice – WHY WHY WHY?!)
My Tribute to Norman Gentle
All I can say is this dude better get a commercial, and maybe a movie deal. Norman Gentle is the new Napoleon Dynamite. Norman is my hero and exists deep within the hearts of all decent folk.
On the preview of tomorrow’s episode… THE JUDGES MANSION?!?!? FOR REALS?!?!?! UGH!
I feel like this is the first step to undoing of American Idol. You don’t go to a “mansion”, sit in front of four judges in overstuffed velvet chairs and ‘sing for your life.’ Sick! They have obviously been watching too much of ‘The Bachelor.’
