American Idol – Guys turn
*Before you read much further, I figured I’d mention that BlogMad opened up yesterday. I have done some surfing over there and so far I like it. I’ve also noticed that they are throwing and incredible amount of traffic my way….
OK… Since I did the girls yesterday, I’ll do the guys today…..
Easy – Commodores
I like Taylor. He’s different. He’s good. I’d even root for him to win this thing… BUT- I started thinking about it- can you see hearing this guy on the radio after this is all over with? I need to hear him do some more modern stuff to know…..
Moody’s Mood for Love – James Moody
I can’t stand this guy… it’s probably mostly his looks (he looks like somebody beat Eminem with an ugly stick)… Not bad if you close your eyes, but not real impressive either.
If You’re Not the One – David Bedingfield
Just a quick word to all you girls who are so hot after Ace… Ryan has a much better shot at him than you do. Boring performance.
Sam Cooke – A Change is Gonna Come
Gedeon reminds me of Michael Evans from Good Times… He sounded good last night, but I have a feeling he’ll crash and burn the day they step outside his style…
I Heard it Through the Grapevine – Marvin Gaye
Deer in the headlights. That geeky kid they dared to get up and sing karaoke at the dance. America’s newest sex symbol. Going home.
Jose “Sway” Penala
Overjoyed – Stevie Wonder
Yawn. Why is this guy on the show? At least he didn’t try the falsetto thing again.
Lady – Kenny Rogers
He did ok. He’s a local kid, but he just doesn’t say ‘star’ to me.
Thunder Rolls – Garth Brooks
I thought this was the best Bucky has done. It was funny, I was telling my wife that he’d sound great singing something like “Turn the Page” and right after, Randy says he’d sound great singing Seiger…
Frank Sinatra – The Way You Look Tonight
Crooners croon, but they can’t do anything else.
Fuel – Hemorrhage
FINALLY! Somebody who understands how this show works! Chris took a song that the people who vote actually know, and then he nailed it. If he keeps it up, he’s easily the choice to win it all. The judges were right- he is the guy that all the others need to look to on how to win the show.
