It’s Latin night on Idol and Jenny from the Block is the “mentor” this week. This should be fun.
Melinda – “Sway” – Sounds perfecto. She looks a bit less terrible this week, although she really reminds me of Gladys Knight.
Lakisha – “Conga” – Cone-ga, it’s conga ho, and don’t you forget it. Back-fat aside, (and after trying on my wedding gown I know a thing or two about back-fat) I like the dress and flat iron hair. It’s a bit more modern, which is good. I think she’s safe.
Chris – “Smooth” – He sounds like a poor man’s Rob Thomas and he didn’t quite get the pronunciation of munequita correct. I hate him this week. I think he’ll be in the bottom this week.
Scrubnato – “Turn the Beat Around” – Well, she looks fantastic again, despite the formal shorts, again. The sound is not so good and she really starts to caterwaul midway through. Man, she is really not a singer. I feel as though she should have tried out for “Grease: You’re the One That I Want” instead of Idol.
Phil – “Maria, Maria” – I love the hat Phil! He sounds OK, not great, but good. Whoa, he actually has a pretty authentic-sounding voice lately. Could I be a Phil convert? I think so. He’s by far the best of the night so far, until he hits a baaaaaaaaaaaad note. Dammit Phil, I was starting to like you.
Jordin – “Rhythm is Gonna Get You” – Meh. It’s a bit boring, but still by far one of the better performances of the night.
Blake – “I Need to Know” – J-Lo says: Oh no, cholo, you did not just try to do my Marc Antonio’s song. I will cast my Santeria powers over you and vote you off! I mean it. The Simon Le Bon hat. The pretty man mullet. The nose like a baked potato. I think he’s gonna land at the bottom of the pile.
Sanjaya – “Besame Mucho” – Wow. Actually singing in Spanish. Tall props. He’s the best supergay Indian Leif Garrett-alike ever!
Dream Boot: Haley

|I actually thought Blake was the best of the night, followed by Sanjaya.
I may have fallen asleep during Jordin's song. Boring. I was shocked by how genuinely helpful J Lo was. I misunderestimated her.

|Melinda is better looking than she thinks. Too bad her singing wasn't as good as the outfit.
LaKisha was average too. The dress just screamed hey kool aid. Still, you're correct, she's safe.
Chris sucked as much as Santana. So I guess he sang it right.
Legs McBoobs (haley) went all out for the drool vote. I thought the table dancing was rather appropriate since she will make more money doing that than she can singing.
Phil sucked Santana as well.
I know I am in the minority, but age aside, I think Jordin is every bit as pretty as Haley. She's absolutely drop dead. Song was so so.
Blake, and you know I don't like Blake, absolutely nailed the Marc Anthony song. Fantastic. Best of the night and it's not even close.
Freakshow: believe it or not, I didn't think it was so bad. Maybe his best performance so far.
My worst to first:
B3 will be Chris, Haley and Phil. All 3 have dodged the bullets up to this week, but Haley goes down tomorrow.

|I agree Kris. J-Lo was very down to Earth. Of course, that was before the Idols turned the latin invasion night into pig latin night.
She will show them how it is done tomorrow.
