Vital Idol - Inspirational Songs
It’s inspirational song week, making me wish I would have conned Kris into doing this recap. Joy.
Michael Johns – “Dream On.” What’s with the ascots? And the man vests? And the Chinos? Bad, bad fashion aside, it’s a pretty decent of a very difficult song. Nothing groundbreaking here, but he should be safe.
Syesha – “I Believe.” She’s chosen to sing a non-hit of past winner, Fantasia. She’s not a really powerful singer, so this is an odd choice. It’s OK, but she’s not taking me to church. I think this could land her in the bottom 3 this week for sure.
Jason Castro – “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” I think this is the Sandals vacation commercial version. Needless to say, Jason’s frat-party performances have left me bored with him and firmly out of his corner. Nice vocals, but the song choice is so lame, I can’t praise him any more.
Kristy Lee Cook – “Anyway.” Well, the genius that she is, she’s chosen to sing a Martina McBride song. Martina is one of the finest country singers in the world, ever. Kristy, not. On a positive note, I like her top and hair. On a negative note, she’s still on the show and she sucks horribly.
David Cook – “Innocent.” Terrrible song choice, execution and jacket. I was hoping maybe for “More Than a Feeling” by Boston or anything recognizable as being remotely good.
Carly Smithson – “Show Must Go On.” Why people insist on ruining Queen, I’ll never know. She’s wearing a crazy Pat Benetar outfit and has a crazy look in her eyes. She also totally loses the pitch in the middle. This is awful and may send her rightly to the bottom 3 this week and hopefully home.
David Archuletta – “Through it All” Terrible and boring.
Brooke White - “You’ve Got a Friend.” It was OK.

|Michael Johns - great. I have no idea what Randy has against him.
Syesha - snooze, she's gone.
Castro - pleasantly mellow
KLC - good, if you like that sort of thing
Cook - predictable, but for the first time in weeks, crappy.
Smithson - screechy and completely lacking melody.
Archuletta - hopelessly wussy
Brooke - I think it was actually pitchy
Boot guess - Syesha
Boot wish - anyone but Michael Johns
What an uninspiring season.

|i've given up on idol. i started watching last night, but skipped over so much that it probably took me no more than 3 minutes to watch the whole thing. each time the next singer came on, i thought, "ooh, i had forgotten all about that person..."
boring. forgettable. dreadful.

|Michael Johns: meh, Wasn't great, wasn't bad.
Syesha: How the heck is she still in this. AI stands for American Idol, not Affirmative actIon...
Castro: Sang the version that you saw in a movie like 50 first dates. Terrible. Creepy.
Kristy: Very well done. Top 3.
Cook: putting it nicely, WEAK!
psychochick (aka Carly): PMW, she always has an angry look. It's why we call her psychochick on the bamapachyderm chat. The woman is crazy. Look at that freaking spooky tattoo... Anyway, I thought it was one of her better tries. or maybe I'm looking for another wierd one to crush on now that Amanda is gone.
David A: I can't stand the kid. He always sings these preachy, lefty songs. As much as I hated him, he did ok.
Brooke: meh. When you have the pimp spot, you have to home run it. She didn't.
First to worst:
3. David A
8. Syesha (chikeze was robbed)
