American Idol Top 7

(Can you tell that I'm all out of catchy post titles? I really tried but all that I could come up with was 'Scary Carey.' I know, so I stuck with the generic.)

It's Mariah Carey week and I started out a little scared. I'm not a huge fan of hers (possibly because of the tabloid stuff about her personal life?) but I can appreciate her vocal and song-writing talent, as well as her achievements. I also agree with Randy (?) that it could be a tough night for the girls because of the comparison factor. Anyway, tonight is about the Idols, right?

Archie- He did a fine job tonight but I still think it sounded like the perfect song for a Disney movie. Better than recent weeks for me though.

Carly- SHE WORE SLEEVES!!!!! Can I get a 'Hallelujah'?! She was just ok again tonight. I did like it better than past weeks, but she still looked angry through most of the song. Is she trying too hard? Is she scared? Relax girl!

Syesha- I love the soul-y sound tonight from her-her best of the last few weeks, also.

Brooke- I really thought it was pitchy all throughout. The judges thought she did ok. Hmmm. I don't know...

Kristy- Of the girls I thought her vocal was the best tonight, and the country infusion was good. That said, the facial expressions, or lack-there-of, still really bothers me.

David Cook- DC is BACK! I loved the string arrangement and the haunting quality he brought to the song. The only criticism that I have would be that he was at the very low end of his range and he cut it close, but pulled it off.

Jason of the Dreads- Breathy, emotional, great arrangement with the bongos. Awesome!!! I would buy his album yesterday.

All in all, the guys did better than the girls and Mariah Carey week was WAY better than I thought it would be. Top 2- DC and Jason. Bottom 4-all of the girls. My guess to go home? Carly or Brooke.

Thanks for hangin' with me and the Idols tonight. Go check out what everyone else thought over at Boo's Place!

I agree with your with your predictions! Hallelujah for the sleeves!! But the husband was extra scary for me tonight!!

Mamacita said...

I agree with you DC and Jason were the best. I am with you on the sleeves! :)

Suzie said...

From this day forth, I, too, will refer to David Archeletta as Archie. It's much better than having two Davids. You've started a trend.

Enjoyed your review.

I had many of the same thoughts as you did. Hooray for sleeves and I'd buy Jason's album the day before yesterday.

You should have went for "Scarey Carey" for the post title. :)

Uh...Hallelujah was a few weeks ago...you know, Jason...?

;) Kidding.

I really wish I had time to watch these on the nights they air. But even if I had time, last night was all about the Biggest Loser finale in our house.

I'll comment sometime later....

I'm so on the same page! Archie...cute nickname for him!

I'm still in mourning over Michael Johns.

But I would buy David Cook's album today!!!

I don't want Brooke to go home but I agree that it will probably be a girl saying goodbye this week.
