|American Idol Update- Season Two, Episode Seven|
|Focus on the commentators: Cathy in Purple, Deb in Red, Tim in Blue|
Clay (Open Arms) - Wow, he looks so diff! I didn't even recognize him. I liked him better before though. I really liked him in the glasses. That song was nice. I think he has a diff voice and I really kinda like it. Also, I think that he plays to the audience really well. The funny thing is that he has a little spark of Barry Manilow about him.
He has a nice strong voice but I wasnt crazy about his singing style. He has a weird Irish accent when he sings. I did like him, but not as much as I did before. I am however interested in seeing what else he can do. He kind of intrigues me, the whole Rick Astley vibe (that voice from that person?) So, hes good.I like him well enough, not sure if he'll make it to the top 10. I would guess not.
Candice (A Little Piece of my Heart) - Ok, now no one could possibly match Janis, but that was the best try I've heard so far. I really agree with Randy! Great voice, but not the right song. I think she definately has potential.
I agree, she has a great voice but that was totally the wrong song. Shes so cute though!
She's cute, has a strong voice, and while it wasn't the ideal song, I agree with Cathy, best job with Janis thus far. But her fashion sense is dipping dangerously into Ryan Starr territory.
Rebecca (Beats the Hell out of me (Here by me?)) - Weird and nothing special. Seriously. What a weird song. I think she'd have potential if she had a diff song. Girlfriend just proved Simon's point. This is not an Ella/Atretha type competition. I mean, she does have a nice voice and it's older and more developed, but not american idol. I agreed with Randy again.Good strong voice but a little nasal. Not surprising, have you seen the nose on her? OK, Im being mean. Bad Debbie! Also, what was up with that song? It would have been nice if she did a song that was more familiar. O.K. voice, bad song, not right for AI. See you in the night clubs, Rebecca!
Oh, btw, I would like to hear that Really real song.You got it. I will warn you, it's quite a bit different. But a good song, though.
Real real real, lets make it really real. Real real real
|Jacob (Do I ever cross your mind) - Cute
little guy. Definately looks like an American Idol. Ok, I've decided that my opinion is
tainted because I really don't like the way guys sing. (ooh, he just missed a high note)
Anyway, in general, I don't like guys' voices. Oh well. I didn't like this one at all. I
disagree with Paula. I agree totally with Randy! Randy said that he was singing flat, and
that's what guys do. They always sound like they're singing flat. Ok, kiss a$$. I hate
that he does that bull. I also (I can't believe I'm saying this) totally agreed with simon
about the fact that they're not singing as awsom as they can. NO! He kisses tush WAY too
much! I hate that!
His performance in 1 word: WEAK.He was flat, tried to hard to be like Justin. He's gone. He BETTER be gone!
Hadas (You light up my life) - Wow, she does look like Sandra Bullock. I liked it. I think that simon will like it better. She sang out really well. I wouldn't pick her though. I love how Paula said "YO!" That was funny. Anyway, I'm surprised by simon's comment, but I do agree with it. Uh oh, is hell freezing over? I agreed with simon twice?The name Hadas makes me think of Haggis. (Tim, can you find a picture for that? Wait, Im not sure I want to see it). Anyway, she has a very pretty voice but it was a little overdone. And cant she find a newer song? That song was such a "moment in time" and then you never heard it again. I dont think it was the best song for her to sing. It makes me think that shes been singing that song in auditions since it was popular (when I was like 10). Yikes! Yeah, pretty girl, bad song. Star Search films down the road, honey. I chose this pic because it looks like she's sticking her chest out... BTW. Haggis looks a lot like the dress on the left.
Ruben (Superstar) - Ooh ooh ooh, I can't wait. I'm gonna like this, I think. He's a fun looking guy. A teddy bear. Holy crap! I loved that. She how he changed it a little bit. That is how you take a great song that would be hard to beat, and really do it justice. If america doesn't vote him in, I'm gonna pull a postal worker. Seriously! Btw, I love the Ruben Kevin sandwich with a side of Seacrest!
Pha-nominal! I totally love Ruben! (but what was up with the outstretched arm, picky picky I know). His voice is so so pretty and smooooth. Im so looking forward to seeing more of him in the competition! He does have a great personality too. The Ryan sandwich was HILARIOUS! Tim said, "Suddenly Im in the mood for an Oreo." Too funny!Sing with me "Seacrest...in the middle". Ruben is the best. That's your American Idol right there. Oh, and what a fantastic song selection! I love that song anyway and it was just such a cool choice. He has a great personality.
|Kimberly (Somewhere over the rainbow) - Ok,
here comes our other finalist. I'm sure of it. I liked it all three times, but I'd like to
hear her sing something new. Ya know? See, again. Who could possibly sing that better than
the original. She didn't but she did it justice by changing it.
OK, she had me and then she lost me. She was really great and I enjoyed her performance but then Simon dissed her and she totally stooped to his level except she was a total jerk. I didnt like her personality, she was very defensive and too bitchy. I had her at #2 tonight but then when she acted like an ass I moved her to #3. The way she acted is not like how an American Idol should act. Coming down from the soapbox now .
I agree with Deb. She sang really well (albeit a little Broadway, again, she's probably beeen auditioning with that for years) but then she turned into an idiot. Pack your things, sweetheart.
Jennifer () - Woo hoo! Up tempo. I'm glad she did a fun song. She started off crazy nervous, but then she got a lot better. I still thought it was awkward and nothing special compared to the last two. I mean, we all know this already, but Frenchy, Kimberly, and Ruben are gonna dominate this competition. Simon was wrong in what he said, but he made a point. Nothing compares to those two. It sucked for her to go last. Also, she doesn't seem to have it in her heart. I don't think she'd make a good finalist at all.
She was very stiff and didnt have much passion. I disliked her performance so much. She was like #9 or 10 tonight.
Not very good. I like that Deb said she was 9 or 10 when only 8 people sang :) The up tempo songs are hard with just the piano, I agree. She doesn't match up. She should've been in last weeks group. Only Jacob was worse.
My #1 is Ruben (duh) and my #2 is Clay. Kimberly is still #3 even though she was dumb (talent is talent after all). Well see if America got as pissed off at her as I did.
#1 Ruben, #2 Candice. Clay # 3. Kimberly is an idiot. I'm very diappointed, as I like her a lot. I thought she was going to be a low-key Frenchie.Oh well, I could go on forever. We'll find out tomorrow. Ahhhh, I can't wait!
