They came to sing and some did, some didn't. At this point in American Idol we are starting to weed out the singers from the performers from the artists and last night's show proved that some are not ready for stardom.
And I must say that i think Steven Tyler and J Lo must man up and be more honest with the contestants at this point. Randy is speaking the truth, now you two need to stop telling everyone how organic everyone is and offer some reality to this reality show. Don't get me wrong, I love this panel of judges and don't miss the stupid flirting between Paula and Simon one iota. This combination of judges is the bomb. BTW, Randy laughs just before he's going to say something negative in direct contrast to what JLo and Steven said. It's funny. Watch for this.
As for the singers, one will be eliminated tonight and that person should be.....Karen Rodriguez. She's the weakest singer but Golly, she looked like a superstar last night. If that counted, I'd say Casey should go, but it doesn't. And what's up with Paul MacDonald? He looks great onstage, has the whole image thing down but can't sing his way out of a wet paper bag. Or should i say he sings very off key. I like to watch him though. And Ryan, trying to dance like Paul.
James Durbin and Pia Toscano are still favorites and in my humble opinion, Jacob Lusk can go straight to Broadway now. He has amazing heart but sings very sharp as do alot of artists who are immensely invested emotionally. The kid with the low country voice can go straight to Nashvile now, Ashton has gone as far as she deserves, Thia megia ( i love saying her name) can go straight to Disneyland recording studio, Casey is ready to record a CD then tour and Lauren Alena should finish high school first. She's cute, has tons of talent but do you think she's ready for idolness? I worry. I love the guy from Seattle too. Stefano? He's got great chops, cute to watch with that never-ending smile and worry that America might not love him enough to take him to the top 5. Watch tonight when my boy, Adam Lambert performs. Love this guy but i hope he doesn't lick his guitar players face. Uck, Adam!
There you have it. My morning spew about American Idol. I'd love to hear what you think.
