Idol Blogging – da Guyz

February 21st, 2007

12 sing, 2 will go home Thursday.  I’ll keep it short, because really… we don’t have much to go on with these guys.  My top two:

Chris Sligh – total geek, to know enough about Simon to string together El Divo and the Teletubbies in a off-the-cuff remark back to Simon, too funny.  plus he sang well too, his odd mix of John Popper/Jack Osborne looks will keep him interesting too.

Blake Lewis – though I was put off with the beat-boxing as nothing but a gimmick, I was impressed with his singing last night, and picking a Travis song to cover, bold move that paid off with the judges.  I’m gonna go against Randy and say, the beat-boxing should not be his ‘thang’.. don’t make that part of your normal act kid, just sing.  Keep it in your back pocket and play it when it counts.

Two people that should be going home:

Sundance Head – all we know is that his first audition in front of the panel rocked.  After that its been a downhill slide, and Simon’s comment about Dad singing at a wedding – – – OUCH.  He’ll get offed because people resent that he got to the final 24 because of his one audition.

The second one is a bit more tough to gauge.  Idol has now become a popularity contest, and not pure talent, and though I’d love to see Chris (keep me because I look like Justin, without the talent) Richardson and Sanjaya Malakar be given the ‘bad day’ bus ticket home.  I, like Jen, fear the teeny-bopper demographic, so instead we’ll probably see a middle of the road performer that has potential but no flair get the boot.  My pick, for no particular reason, Jared Cotter.

    My thoughts on “Idol”…

    A few bright lights in an otherwise VERY ordinary, VERY plain opening night. Simon was cranky, Randy was crotchety, Paula was annoying. I disagreed with Simon (and, after watching the whole episode, he probably would, too) that Rudy’s performance wasn’t energized enough. Gosh if it wasn’t for him, there wouldn’t have been any show.

    And now, an unprecedented first in AI history, I will now call the final 6 guys. Let’s just skip over the next 2 weeks and get right to the good stuff:
    Rudy, Brandon, Jared, Blake, Chris, and A.J. The finals will be 2 girls.

    Deboobily out.

    REaaaaaly… Though there was a greater pool to weed through on the girls side in hollywood, so far none have wowed me… I reserve further comment for tonight.

    I really liked Blake because he was very…contemporary. The hair, the attitude, the clothes. I like him…but I’m gunning for Chris Sligh.

    And really…”Careless Whisper”? Urgh.
