Anyway, sittin' here on the couch with my sweetie again, this time folding laundry and waiting for Idol to start. Watched the last 3 minutes of "Two and a Half Men" and am reminded again why that show is banned in our house. I can't believe that smut is allowed on tv at 7pm!
Ok, here we gooooo!!!
Haeley Vaugh - Ok, I'm sorry, I just have to say it. She has a lisp. Has no one noticed this? She is really sweet and cute and everything, but I'm very surprised that she has made it this far. Vocals were really bad. She's my vote-off prediction for this week.
Lacey Brown - I'm trying really, really hard to find something about her that doesn't completely and utterly annoy me. Nasally, whiney voice? nope. Finger in the light socket hairdo? um, no. Poofy zebra shirt with eighty necklaces? Fake fake fake.
Katie Stevens - She's cute and funny and weird and she laughs at herself, and I love that. She has a pretty voice, but it's not nearly powerful enough. Just eh for me.
Commercial break....and I'm kinda bored so far. Crystal was the only one that I've enjoyed tonight. However, I have been utterly entertained by our children - Hope and Kyle - who called me outside to watch them rollerblading down the driveway, bent over with their hands behind their backs like olympic speed skaters. That was so immensely cute that I didn't have the heart to yell at Kyle for being outside in shorts - even though it is like 29 degrees out.
Didi Benami - Oh my, I love her! She prays and meows - how many people can say that? She has a fantastic voice and I know she's going to be awesome......YEP, she is!!! LOVE love love what she's doing with this song! She is unique, and totally my fav so far (for the girls). Really surprised at Randy, Kara and Simon's criticism. They can just shut it, she did good.
Michelle Delamor - Ok, weird song choice for a girl?? Weak voice, not impressed. She does look good tho, so I agree with the judges on that one.
Time to tuck the kids in bed! They just finished their showers and Kyle made himself a Jimmy Neutron/Ace Ventura mowhawk. Ok then. His hair should look quite interesting in the morning.
Lilly Scott - One word. Ick.
Commercial break again...time for a brownie :)
Katelyn Epperly - WOW! She was awesome! Loooove the piano (white baby grand.....mhm), and I thought she did fantastic. I love how she played the piano so simply. And if they ever decide to turn this into a gong show, they wouldn't have to purchase a gong, they could just use one of her earrings. Bonus.
Paige Miles - Likes to....color? Hmmph. Not sure I would have chosen that to tell America about myself. Well, guess what....the girl can sing!!! AWESOME song choice. She's not my favorite, but she's good and I think she has a chance at being in the top few.
Victoria Secret girls again? Seriously, those commercials are one step away from pornography.
Siobhan Magnus - Great song and she can sing, but she can't pull off Aretha. Vince disagrees with me, tho, after that high note - he loved it! That was brave of her, so I'll give her that. I have to agree with Simon, parts of the song were bad and parts were amazing, so we'll see how she does after tonight.
Overall......bring on the guys!
