Any Early Idol Predictions?


Now that we have "cut the fat" with the likes of Tatiana "I only made it to the WildCard round for entertainment value" Del'Toro as well as Casey "There's no way in hell I made it through Hollywood week on my Stellar Vocal Ability" Carlson, I would like to hear of any Idol predictions you may have before we get any deeper into this thing.

Danny Gokey is of course a judge's favorite . . but is he yours? Has his two-week hiatus from too much face time and when his friend's held up the picture of his late wife been enough time to cool you down and warm you back up to him?
Matt Giraud was one of my early favs, but he is turning me off with the whole I wanna be a pop star, donning the fedora and the scarf trend at the same time . . gasp!
So, I have found myself wondering, who do I want to see win this thing?

Attitudes or "Simon back-talk" can get on my nerves, and if these contestants can sway away from that, I think these might have to be my picks: Allison Iraheta (the red head with that amazing voice but weird facials); Megan Corkrey (yeah she looks like she's dancing on a mounted swivel, but i am more intrigued by her, than let's say um, Michael Sarver. Michael who? exactly); and lastly, I'm keeping the faith in my boy, Matt Giraud. So long as he stops trying to be a Justin-Timberlake wannabe and return to those piano-playing roots.

So where do you all weigh in? They sing Michael Jackson tonight. Will Matt do a recreation of "I Want You Back" like he did when he wowed the judges in Hollywood Week? What will Noop Dog sing? And finally, is Alexis Grace possibly the reincarnate of a female Michael Jackson? She is the whitest girl with the most soul I have ever seen!

American Idol Inspirational Song Night: Crystal Bowersox Cries. I Finally Feel Something. (Recap)

Considering I kept busy on my computer all the while Idol played out tonight on my TV screen, only giving the occasional glance up to notice that Lee Dewyze got his hairs cut, Kara got her hairs styled in a flattering manner that I can't quite put my finger on as to why they were so flattering and Simon's buzz cut looked especially unflattering ... I guess you could say it was all one big unnoticeable snooze fest until Crystal "Mamasox" Bowersox took the stage. So really, all I care about commenting on is her for now.

Wicked Mic Stands and Wet Eyes: Now I don't know if Crystal got overly wrapped up in the spirit of today's date, but someone should have told her pot paraphernalia is not allowed on the Idol stage. Oh, I keed. I keed. Crystal's extraordinary mic stand was made from an old lamp with which she always used to perform in her pre-Idol days. Could that sentimentality be what brought on her sudden outburst of tears at the end of her emotional "…

American Idol: Rat Pack Night "Sways" My Opinions

Well our Top 5 performed the Rat Pack Standards last night, and when it was all said and done, I must say . . . I felt a little swayed. I have to use the word "swayed," first of all, because it's my clever pun on a popular song during the Rat Pack era; and secondly, because the night didn't make me into a full-blown convert -- it simply swayed me, like a gentle yet confused little branch blowing in the wind, unsure if it wants to waver on back to the safe side of "Adam & Simon," or dare to venture and possibly snap on over to the unfamiliar side of "Danny & Kara."

Sway Factor #1: Jamie Foxx is a rockin' mentor! Who ever would have thought that Mr. Foxx would mentor Rat Pack night?! Turns out, he did a kick ass job! Getting all up in Danny Gokey's grill, refusing to let "D" (nickname compliments of Mr. Foxx) detour from his emotions. Channeling "Field of Dreams" and telling Matt Giraud, "if you change the ke…

American Idol Top 9 Perform: Casey James, BagPipes and Didgeridoos Make For One Good Night! (Recap)

Well hot dog, hot dog, hot diggity dog, folks, do we finally have a competition on our hands?  Maybe I am just a little excited about my tax refund or am perhaps silly over this ga-or-geous weather we are having, but dare I say, that in last night's Idol, I saw shades of Idol season 8!?!  Yes, from the humorous moments (one word: bagpipe) to some mad awesome vocals (two words: Casey James), I finally recognized a competitive momentum taking place, which left no alternative but to bring me to a rolling boil of excitement!

I will break it down with the highlights of the night:

These Intro Packages Are Workin' For Me!:  Question for you, Mr. Idol Producer:  Why couldn't we have used these endearing little intro packages wherein Idols comment on other Idols, showing us the viewer some real personality, earlier?  I mean, how much did I love learning that Lee Dewyze and Andrew Garcia have been in a bro-mance since Hollywood Week?!  It brought me back to the big bro/lil sis days o…
