Congratulations go out to David… Continue reading Season 7 Finale
Well, my dear American Idol fans, the season is coming swiftly to a close, and here we are at what might be one of the most exciting finale’s of AI history. The two boys go head to head in what might have been a knock down drag out, but what ended up as a good old fashioned butt whoopin’, complete with the out of control judges totally taking sides.
Let’s start by talking theme. Is it just me or did they take the boxing metaphor just a little too far??? Oh, but I’m glad they got this one right… yes, David Archuleta is “…weighing in at around 100 lbs.”
But lets look past the stupid intro, and to things that really matter, like our Judges… Paula is bedazzled tonight (like Monday’s microphone), and Simon is (yet again) baring a bit too much chest… just slightly inappropriate for a man his age.
Now to some reviews of actual singing… Continue reading Top 2 Reviewed
I have a problem with this…
Microphones have no business being bedazzled with all sorts of fake jewels. Are the artists who use them trying to distract you from their face or their terrible voices?
I’ve never played on a football team, but I remember hearing once about about “two-a-days”, where the team would practice twice a day and put in some long, grueling hours. Well, we are into two-a-days with American Idol blogs..
Ok. First order of business… Mayor Snar from Murray City, UT, what is up with the circa 1923 moustache? Second, way too cheesy product placement with the iPhones getting TXT messages from the judges.
And now to the reviews:
This is an open invitation/opportunity for you (you know who you are) to react and pay tribute to Jason Castro’s EXPULSION from American Idol last night.
I will just say with 58.67% certainty that he is on drugs. He openly admitted his brain was fried [by drugs] on national television. Didn’t he ever see the commercial with the egg and the frying pan?
Then he made up completely different words to the song he was supposed to sing on the play out. He didn’t even want to sing it – he wanted to run off the stage like the little girl he is.
Jason was unique and showed promise early, but in the end I don’t think he ever really wanted it.
Good bye our pointy eared Legolas friend. We’ll see you back in Rowlett soon!
In other news, AI will be returning David Archuleta to his hometown, Murray Utah, this week. My mom (and aunts and uncles) went to David A’s high school back when they were the Murray High “Smelterites” rather than the “Spartans”. That was because there used to be a huge brick smelter in Murray.
I just can’t wait!
Paula seems to be trying extra hard tonight to not make stupid comments. Did she get writers? Perhaps she’s been coached this week. Was that an ear piece I saw in her ear? Maybe someone just swapped out her Coke cup right before taping… yeah, that’s it.
But she was still up and dancing like a drunken… la dee da dee da.
Also, was it just me or was the audio mix totally off? I couldn’t hear the band at all…
To the reviews…
SAVE THE DATE for the much anticipated American Idol Season 7 Finale Party. The party will be Wednesday, May 21st.
It is a DRESS UP LIKE YOUR FAVORITE CONTESTANT OR JUDGE FROM AMERICAN IDOL party. There will be prizes for the most creative and/or unexpected costumes. (you don’t have to come dressed up if you don’t want to)
For all of you closeted AI fans, now is the time to show your true colors and make yourself known to society at large!
If you have any ideas for things we should/could/would do to make this party awesome, let me know.
During this season of American Idol, the most googled search terms that landed people on my blog were “brooke white mormon girl”. So I thought it was fitting to do a little post on her kick off day.
