My Night, My Shows

I really like Tuesday nights because I get to watch the performances on American Idol and see the results of Dancing with the Stars. On Stars this week, Priscilla went home, like I thought she should, so all's right there.

However, my world was crushed a little last week when I got word that Michael Johns had been sent home. He's been my #1 fav since day one, and I wasn't even home to see him leave. I had two friends e-mail me and fill me in. Can I just say, if I'd been home, he wouldn't have left. Yes, I am that powerful.

Now, for tonight.

David Archuletta definitely won some hearts out there. I think he also got a sympathy boost when Ryan commented that he's often so nervous on performance day, he can't eat. As if the kid wasn't cute enough already, they had to go and make us feel sorry for him.

I enjoyed Carly tonight, even though the judges didn't. I thought her performance was gutsy and awesome.

David Cook did a really good job. I personally didn't think it was as awesome as the judges did, but it was good.

I also enjoyed Syesha's performance, even though I was unfamiliar with the song and wasn't sure if it was really going how it should -- it was one of those songs with lots of sharps and flats and unexpected notes.

Brooke was terrified tonight. The close-ups of her showed that she was shaking. I enjoyed her rendition, though.

Kristy Lee still just bugs me. I don't know why. I haven't stopped to analyze it. But she does. She did a tolerable job tonight, but that's as far as it went for me.

Jason also did a decent job, but I didn't agree with the judges. They were all over it, but I didn't think it was his best.

So, top to bottom, that's how I personally enjoyed the evening. Now, on to my predictions.

I think Carly, Kristy Lee and Brooke are the bottom three, and Brooke is going home.

After the results:

Wow! I didn't think Kristy Lee was going home. I mean, I was hoping, but I've been hoping for a long time now. I did get it right that Brooke and Kristy Lee would be in the bottom three, but I didn't see tonight's result coming at all. It's all good. I'm glad Brooke has a chance to redeem herself and I really hope she can start pulling it out of the fire. I like that girl.

I completely agree with your assessment. I was rooting for Brooke, having the whole Phoenix connection thing going on, but she didn't have her best performance tonight.

OK, so I'm confessing that my family is addicted to idol too. Our thing is all about growth. Carly and Brooke haven't really made use of all the resources around them. Why doesn't Brooke use the band- all she did was vamp on the piano. It wasn't great. Carly also hasn't gotten much better and I was disappointed with how small her range was.

We love David Cook, put up with David A. and think that Dregman is getting better (we like him)- I guess that is to say, you are right again Tristi.

P.S. Thanx for the review. I appreciated your kind words.

This is my order:
Carly--loved the song and the performance

Syesha--didn't like the song but thought she was great

David C--so, so song but love the way he makes all the songs his own

David A--great voice but really boring song choices; you know it's going to be sappy and sweet :(

Brooke--she should have dumped the piano and concentrated on the vocal. Loved the song, love her but it could have been so much better

Jason--okay but boring

Kristy Lee--she is like fingernails on a chalboard to me

Unfortunately, I'm afraid Brooke might go, but I'd rather see Jason or Kristy Lee leave

Yep, I'm with you. I was surprised Jason wasn't in the bottom (I thought Syesha did well enough to be safe) and I really don't think that much of his, umm, talent, but otherwise, I think it was probably right for KLC to go home.

Poor Brooke. I hope she does a lot better next week.

And you know I love David C. but he hasn't been thrilling me the last two weeks. He needs to hit it out of the park next week or I think he could be at risk.

I was kind of underwhelmed by the whole thing on Tuesday. I don't think anybody did awesome. It was just 'eh'.
