Ho-hum.Â Thatâ€™s the best way I can describe last nightâ€™s performances by the Top 12 girls on American Idol.Â As usual, I agreed with just about every one of Simonâ€™s assessments.Â These included â€śboring,â€ť â€śbland,â€ť and â€śdreary.â€ťÂ I took copious notes last night, and I neednâ€™t have bothered.Â There was not one memorable performance, though I think a couple of contestants crashed and burned.
Haeley Vaughnâ€”Donâ€™t know how this annoying screecher made it in the first place.Â Her ghastly performance of â€śI Want To Hold Your Handâ€ť should put us out of our misery.Â
Lacey Brownâ€”Iâ€™m really bummed about this one.Â I really thought Lacey was a sleeper to win this whole thing, but that desecration of â€śLandslideâ€ť was unbearable.
Best of the Rest (and that ainâ€™t sayinâ€™ much)
Paige Milesâ€”She was the first performer, and who knew sheâ€™d be the nightâ€™s one bright spot.Â I think sheâ€™s now the frontrunner.
Michelle Delamorâ€”At least she stayed on key (pardon the pun) through Alicia Keyâ€™s â€śFallinâ€™â€ť.Â Solid, but not stellar.
Siobhan MagnusÂâ€”Not the brightest bulb on the billboard.Â Simon called her a â€śdark horseâ€ť in the competition, andÂ she asked â€śWhatâ€™s a â€śdark horseâ€ť?Â (Maybe sheâ€™s just sheltered, cuz she is kinda weird.)Â I liked her version of Chris Isaakâ€™s â€śWicked Gameâ€ť.Â Her voice is pure gold.
Coulda, Shoulda Woulda
Janell Wheelerâ€”Heartâ€™s â€śWhat About Loveâ€ť was absolutely the wrong song for her.Â Anybody who does that song is gonna sound lame compared to Ann Wilson.
Katie Stevensâ€”Sheâ€™s still one of my favorites, but that mom-ish version of Michael Bubleâ€™s â€śFeelinâ€™ Goodâ€ť was painful.Â Ellen was exactly rightâ€”sheâ€™s got to â€śyoung it upâ€ť or sheâ€™ll be out.
Â Letâ€™s hope the guys put on a better show tonight.
I heard a re-cap this morning and Kidd Kraddick in the Morning and wow! The talent, from a person who has not been watching regularly, is not nearly what it has been in the past. I hope it gets better. Maybe I will watch tonight...blah.
