It’s here. Tryouts are over, and Hollywood week is a thing of the past. So now it is time to settle in, get to know the contestants, and vote for the favorites.
Now, I had a very thorough post going right down to the last two, and you know what happened. My software program shut down. (I don’t think ecto is playing nice with Leopard.) Bang. All the good stuff gone. So now I’m not sure I can recall the order they performed or what songs they sang. Maybe that’s all for the best as now I will just recall the stand-outs.
First the bad. Chikezie argued back, and even if his performance hadn’t been less than great (which it was), that scores him down in my book. Several had bad song choices. Luke (who reminds me of Hugh Jackman) was off-key the whole way through.
Now the good. David A. was a favorite of mine in both try-outs and Hollywood week, and he came through again tonight. This kid has a great voice and a double dose of charisma. He is just too cute. Robbie rocked out on stage, and I really liked him. Jason C. surprised me with his guitar song; the judges really liked him, too. Michael ended the night by lighting it on fire.
So there you go. What were your favorites of the night? Mine are shown below.
Here’s my stand-out choices from the first night:
David A. – Robbie – Jason C. – Michael
