Elevensies

By Stacy

What shall the theme be tonight...

Man, Seacrest needs some damned pants that fit. He looks like a hobo.

Theme - Billboard #1's. *yawn*

Anthony (I Knew You Were Waiting, George Michael) - Oh no... Well, at least it isn't a ballad. Kind of a bad sign when you blow the fourth note, eh son. Awful. Simon is going to shred him.

Paula and Randy are HIGH, that's the only explanation.

Carrie (Alone, Heart) - Woo...doing Heart, show me!! Oh damn, I don't care how it sounds now, she looks (and sounds) like Ru Paul! Someone needs to help her with that terrified look.

I see it's Tout My Previous Successes Night for Randy and Paula. We do all remember she couldn't sing worth a damn, right? Damn, Simon, talk about laying on the pressure. Mean man.

Scott (Against All Odds, Phil Collins) - Ok, that was good. That's a hard song, and he did a very good job.

Bo (Time in Bottle, Jim Croce) - Time in a Bottle, eh. I *really* hate that song. However. I think this guy is the SMARTEST of the lot. He had to know everyone was going to go a bit faster tempo this week, after being harped on about it. So he does something that makes him stand out. Nice work.

Nikko (Incomplete, Sisqo) - You make me laugh, son. You should have gone with something with a bit more...class.

Vonzell (Best of My Love, The Emotions) - I like this song, but eh, whatever. She's just too sweet looking, I think. They do need to STOP with the culottes, though. Seriously.

Constantine (I Think I Love You, David Cassidy) - My five year old daughter says, "He doesn't have the talent". Indeed, honey.

Nadia (Time after Time, Cyndi Lauper) - Oh, nice choice. Bad start, thought. Good job with the hair...and VERY good job ramping up the chorus like that. Nice!

Mikalah (Love Will Lead You Back, Taylor Dane) - I now officially hate her. Hated Taylor Dane, when she was recording, too. Bleh, BLEH.

Anwar (Ain't Nobody, Chaka Khan) - Jeebus, this song sucks. And he now sounds female. That's really not a good thing. See? He sounds just like the backup singers.

Yay, No-Neck is next.

Jessica (Total Eclipse of the Heart, Bonnie Tyler) - This will either be a triumph for her or embarrassing as hell. Ok, was that a massive line blowage? Randy is squicking me with his fawning. I'm sorry, she blew a line there, dammit.

Well, not as bad a show as Michele seems to think, but not exactly exciting either.

The hair was scary.

So I'm the only one who wasn't thrilled with Bo, then.

All the contestant hairstyles scares me tonight.

Riiight..good one...submit without proofreading.

michele, I'm not sure what I think of Bo. I think he should have gone with something different. But he succeeded at what he set out to do, which was impress the judges and therefore impress all the little morons out there who don't know anything about music and just listen to what the judges have to say.

Mikalah made my ears bleed.

Mikalah made everyone's ears bleed.

It's a talent of hers.

I'm in on the Bo thing - I really, really like him - this guy is a star, he has "it" - but I just didn't think tonight's was his best performance. He took a risk slowing it down, and that was good, and I actually tolerate "Time in a Bottle" pretty well...I don't know. The whole thing was just too quavery or something.

My bottom two? Mikhala and Mikhala.

Anyway...thanks to you both for liveblogging, and for giving us a place to vent our most venal thoughts on the Idol. Woot!

What was up with Paula tonight? All of the hugging and kissing of Simon? She seriously was high or drunk or something...even Simon was getting really annoyed. He said to her under his breath at one point, "We'll talk after the show". Anyone else notice this?

I thought Paula looked like Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm.

The worst ones were Mikalah, Scott and Jessica. Am I the only one who noticed that she completely screwed up the song and because there is a time limit and verses have to be changed, her song sounded like one big muddled mess? The fact that she has no neck is really starting to piss me off too. Everyone else was cool. I liked Bo's performance, it was different and pretty and the guitar dude sitting on the floor was a good touch.
