Vital Idol - White Chicks
Tonight I watched the show live. I guess it turns out I’m quite mean in real time. Even meaner when I haven’t has a bellyful of Cajun food and copious amounts of wine. Plus, girls are dumb. On with the show:
Stephanie Edwards – Bad hair. Nice cleavage. Great teeth. I like her tone. It’s nice and warm, but I’ve never heard of the song. As she drops to her knees to testify she draws in the crowd. But with her high church factor, she’ll need to do mix it up and do some contemporary hits ASAP.
Amy Krebs – What is with all the jacked up skin? Just because Kelly Clarkson did a Pro-Active commercial, doesn’t mean you have to be a before-Pro-Active commercial. Other than that, she’s OK, not too pretty and definitely no style. And she looks like she shops at Wal-Mart. She tackles “I Can’t Make You Love Me” by Bonnie Raitt. She’s singing it in a higher country-type key and breaks in certain places, which can be cool, but not here. I don’t like it, and I think if she sings a song where she needs to show vocal range, she is waaaaaaaaaay out of it.
Leslie Hunt - I’m only gonna say this once (OK, so maybe a hundred times throughout the competition). DO NOT TOUCH ARETHA, WHITE GIRL. DON’T DO IT. She is dead to me. And oh my God, are these boots back in style, or did she steal them out of my stripper friend’s closet? On a more positive note - nice legs, hair and dress.
Sabrina Sloan – Wow. She’s lovely and distinctive looking with curly locks to boot. BUT SHE PICKED AN ARETHA SONG TOO. WTF, GIRL? I love, love, love this song and she sounds pretty good. But she’s not ARETHA and halfway through she got all Christina Aguilera on me. Nevertheless, she looks hot and has a good voice, very Mya; I think she’ll be around for while.
Barbarella – Her and her buddy were such bitches during Hollywood Weak, I’m not sure what it’s gonna take for me to get behind her. And she kind of looks like Denise Richards, who is a heinous bitch. She’s also no Steven Tyler. I can best compare her to Diana LaGarmo. I think the Guidos and Guidas will like her and keep her around, but eventually they’ll realize she’s not that good and can’t sing with accompaniment.
Jordin Sparks - Also really cute. But she looks retarded in the skirt/jeans outfit. And the song sucks and she sounds bad singing it. It’s very shrill and it’s making me cringe a bit. Her movements also look forced and Tracey Chapman is BORING. I don’t think there’s any way she can win this.
Nicole Tranquillo – I’m feeling déjà vu. I’m only gonna say this once (or maybe a hundred times). OH NO YOU DIDN’T, WHITE VOICE MAJOR GIRL. WHO TOLD YOU YOU COULD ROCK LIKE CHAKA? PUT DOWN THE MIC. You are dead to me. She also makes really ugly faces and is very shiny. I think she’s going home very soon. From the looks of the crowd, everyone is too distracted by her shininess to realize she’s not very good.
Hayley Scarnato – She’s very pretty and dresses a little slutty, I had high hopes for her. I could even ignore the fact that she’s wearing a sweetheart neckline with pants – until she opens her mouth. I will not by any means support someone who sings Celine Dion. It sounds like a bad high school musical. I think she’ll absolutely be in the bottom this week.
Melinda Doolittle – She totally looks like Jackee Harry. She sounds fantastic, and can actually pull off an ARETHA song. Hear that, whitey? Stay away from ARETHA. I like her. But does the world really need another Fantasia? I think she breeze through the first few rounds while the sucky girls drop, but leave a la Kimberly Locke and J-Hud.
Alaina Alexander – Meh. All style no substance.
Gina Glocksen – She sounds good, but damn what a stupid song choice. I think she’s pulling off a Kelly Clarkson vibe, and will easily cruise to the top 5 with her pipes.
LaKisha Jones – What can I say, she’s from Flint, Mich, where pets are meat. Great song choice, great voice. I’ll forgive the outfit because of the nice shoes. She is by far the best singer of anyone I’ve seen. Let’s hope her personality keeps the votes coming in as much as her voice should.
LaKisha gets my vote for the night. Until next time, PMW.

|You know, I'm absolutely bored to death with all of these "divas". Women like Lakisha and Stephanie and Melinda don't sing songs, they perform vocal exercises. I don't want to watch or listen to that anymore. I want to listen to songs. The only people that performed songs decently tonight were Sabrina & Jordin. The only girls I'm at all interested in seeing again are those two, Gina and maybe Alaina, who I think Simon was a complete asshole to ("you'll have to get by on your looks" - she should have told Simon to f*ck off when he said that to her).
Leslie Hunt and Hayley Scarnato are probably the two worst singers I've ever heard at this stage in the show. The only nice thing I can say about either of them is that Leslie had nice boots.

|Oh, and the most entertaining thing tonight was watching Amy Krebs "dance" in the backround during the other girls' performances. I have more moves than she does. And, to put it politely, I ain't winning any dance offs. |

|I kinda agree withe kris. LaKisha, Stephanie and Melinda are essentially the same singer. Also, they will not get by just singing Aretha songs for two months. The one that will win is the one who can pull off something different. Having said that, I thought Stephanie was best tonight. And the women are far better than the men. Antonella and Alaina can go now, they have no chance of winning. |

|Alaina will be around for a while unfortunately. She's looking more and more like a Paris Hilton wannabe. That will stop her from winning, but it will also carry her for a while until the sensible people get enough votes consolidated to bounce her.
Now lay off Leslie. Dang I voted her third just because of those boots. Nothing better than a hot red head in hot boots. Sorry, I know that's no reason to give a vote, but at least I didn't give her first place. :)
Aside from Melinda and LaKisha, no one else stood out. However, all of them were better than most of the guys.
Stephanie and Amy are in the worst position having gone first, few will remember them. Dial Idol has Alaina and Amy going home as well as Nick and Paul.
I really miss last season. No Chris, no Taylor, no Katherine, no Pickler. No personality. The only standouts are the Paris wannabe and the comedian. Neither of those will win. Sigh.
Have a good night.
