We’ve passed the point, really, where too much is too much. Idol is going to be the show that marks the day the music died.
This is not anywhere near the most talented season of Idol. Quite the contrary, actually. And yet, this year is the year of the absolute BIGGEST stars. (Remember, they’ve done the Beatles, Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey, Andrew Lloyd Webber, and Dolly Parton.) Basically, most of these people have butchered some of the best songs in recent history.
And tonight, it’s Neil Diamond’s turn to …turn the other cheek.
Jason Castro – keeps embarrassing himself. Not having the words? Come on. After last week’s atrocity? (People are still talking about his idiotic choice to sing ‘Memory’. When even ALW wondered why.)
David C – this song is one nobody knows. When he finished, nobody cared.
David A – coasting, like he’s got it in the bag. He chose ‘Sweet Caroline’ and ‘America’. [David C should have chosen ‘America’.]
And even, Neil’s ready to say goodbye to B. He said he was “pleasantly surprised” that she could pull off one of his songs.
Syesha, Syesha, Syesha – The more I see and hear, the more I love her. I think she’s benefiting from the comparison to the awfulness that is the competition. I really liked ‘Hello Again, Hello’.
I like the speedy feel of the show, tonight. I’m still fast forwarding through all the Ryan-crap.
Jason – awful. nervous. poor guy. he could go home. David A should’ve done ‘September Morn’.
David C – really good song choice. delivered well, nicely done.
B – I kinda feel sorry for her having to be on the show anymore. She should not be there. (Simon was whispering to Paula. I think they’re gonna be nice to her so she will get kicked off.)
David A – no no no no no no no no. NO. NO. NO! NO! NO! AHHHHHHHH! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Awful. I’d send him home over this. I’m not sure why they’re saying this is good. Well. Apparently, he’s selling kool-aid, and the judges are buying.
S – not super. not super-sucky. maybe not sung the best, but performed well.
Alright everybody, say it with me: Paula, be quiet. Please.
