Well, well, well.
The guys stepped it up this week. Good for them. For the first time since he auditioned, Sundance gave a good performance. I felt that he made it through Hollywood week and even week 1 based on his back story and not on any continued show of talent. Tuesday night gained him some points in my book. I still don’t have a real favorite among the guys, although I enjoyed a number of their performances. Sanjaya definitely needs to go home this week. He is way out of his league in this competition.
I still think my three picks from last week (Blake Lewis, Chris Sligh, and Phil Stacey) will be in the final six guys. And this week, I would add Chris Richardson as probably lasting to that final group.
As for the gals, Antonella needs to depart. She is out of her league as well. It’s possible her nude photos will gain her some votes that will keep her in a while longer, but she won’t stay because of her singing. It didn’t help that she tried to compare herself with Jennifer Hudson when she argued with Simon. She could take some lessons in humility from Melinda Doolittle. Speaking of Melinda, there is no doubt that she should go far in this contest. Farther than just the final six gals.
Like the guys, I’m sticking with last week’s picks (Lakisha Jones, Sabrina Sloan, and Stephanie Edwards) for who I expect to be among the final six gals. And from my comments above, I bet you knew I would be adding Melinda to this group.
I’ll be interested to see who goes home tomorrow. See you then.
