I can't believe Dim beat me to Idol thoughts this week! I'm still watching the show, but I'm basically watching 2 hours in 20 minutes thanks to my DVR. Because I have some school work to do, I'll make this very brief:
First of all, let me say that I loooove Michael Jackson, although I don't think he's the best theme for AI due to his unique vocal tics. I was very disappointed that someone didn't do "Smooth Criminal."
Lil Rounds: Damn, that girl's got an ass on her! And that's coming from someone with an ample ass herself. I don't dislike Lil, but I don't seem to think she's as good as everyone else thinks she is.
Scott: I loved Simon's comment about AI not being the venue for being artistic. Again, I think this guy is decent, but (non-PC alert) wonder if he would be on the show if he weren't blind. I was glad to see they didn't make an ass out of him during the group sing.
Danny: Hate the fact that he's pimping his dead wife, but I have to begrudgingly admit that he did pretty well.
Michael: I fast forwarded through this. Nothing against Michael, but "You Are Not Alone" is one of my least favorite songs in the history of songs.
Jasmine: This was boring to me.
Kris: Mmmm...hot... It doesn't hurt that I love "Remember the Time." I thought this was pretty good (although I admit I'm biased by his looks), but the guitar was sort of pointless.
Allison: I really like this chick, as much as I wanted to hate her after she dared to sing "Alone." I thought she was off-key, but that doesn't matter so much in a "rock" (that's about as rock as MJ gets) song.
Anoop: I love him (for an embarrassing reason) and I love "Beat It." I don't know what the judges were talking about because this was one of the few performances of the night that I enjoyed. You can't choose a MJ theme and they say "Beat It" is untouchable.
Jorge: Awww, I really liked Jorge. I hate "Never Can Say Good-bye" though. I guess you can say good-bye *rimshot*.
Megan: In the context of this show, I hate her. I might like her if she were on the radio or something. But, really? "Rockin' Robin"?
Adam: Everything says I should find this guy insanely hot (oh how I love the gays), but there's some kind of a disconnect. I thought he did well, but I'm going to reserve judgement for now.
Matt: Considering I had to think for a while to remember who Matt was... I love "Human Nature," and he did a fine job, but he's like Elliott Yamin to me. I recognize his talent, but it's not my taste.
Alexis: Very interesting song choice! I thought she did well and actually agreed with Paula (WTF?) about the oversinging.
My favorites of the night: Anoop, Kris, Alexis, Allison
Least favorites: Jorge, Megan, Jasmine, Michael (again, on principle, since I didn't watch it)
And, because it can't be said enough, shut up, Randy.
