My Idol watching was delayed while I drove my granddaughter and three of her volleyball team members home. I live on the west side of Boise and they all live on the east side. My granddaughter took my iPhone and they watched some funny YouTube videos during the drive. Lots of giggling (they’re 14/15 year olds). Always an experience.
About an hour and a half later, I was home and able to play the recorded show. Here we go, the 80’s for the girls.
Asia’h took on a Whitney song, and I thought she did a pretty good job of it. Simon didn’t like it. Again, why criticize using Whitney as a comparison?
Kady was only so-so in my book. Not terrible but not a standout. I don’t think she will make another week.
Amanda, who earlier this week made some internet list as one of the ten worst performances in Idol history, actually did a pretty good job tonight. But I still view her voice as very limited. She can do this type of rock song and nothing else. Judges love it and say this is her niche. But I want more from an Idol winner. I want great vocals week after week, not one good week with one type of song. However this may have saved her bacon for another week or two.
I liked Carly tonight. Great vocals, and she looked good, too. Simon didn’t like the song choice, because he felt she was so much better than the song, so it was somewhat of a compliment.
Kristy gave a country touch to a Journey tune. Enjoyable but not a Wow! performance.
Ramiele went the ballad route. Not a great performance in my book. She could be in danger.
Brooke put a folksy spin on her song choice, Love is a Battlefield. I liked it lot. Simple with only a guitar backing her up. Good job.
Syesha brought the night to a close with another Whitney tune. I so want this girl to do well. I love her voice, her looks. She has an “it” factor going. I thought she handled this admirably enough, although it wasn’t a blow-out performance. Should get in her in the top 12 however. Judges are out of time and say almost nothing.
Last night I listed only my top two guys, so I will do the same tonight. Syesha is edging out Carly by a hair as a favorite. Brooke gets the other slot.
