The American Idol semi-finalists each sang three songs tonight. David Cook did a great job on all three of his. David Archuletta did his first song well, he did sorta so-so on his second, and while the judges didn't like his third choice, I did--"Longer Than" has always been one of my favorites, gooey or not. Syesha did well on her first song, I liked "Fever," (but then, I've always wanted to be a torch singer and do that song) but I really disliked her third song.
After hemming and hawing about it for a while, I've decided that the two Davids are going through and Syesha will be going home. The judges did give David A. a harder time than they did Syesha for the third song, but she's been in trouble before and David A. never, ever has been in the bottom three. I think he's safe.
So them's my predictions.
As far as Dancing with the Stars goes, Marissa went home tonight. I think that's how it should be. I've loved seeing her dance and cheered her on (us plus-sized women need to stick together) but the other dancers do have an edge on her and deserve to be in the finals more than she does.
And . . . as a fun treat, head over to Girl in a Whirl. She's holding a contest. I would also like to remind you to be sure to visit the blogs involved in my virtual book tour, listed just to the right here. Show them some love and appreciation!
After the results:
Wow -- I actually called one right. I'm sure I did another time, too, but it's been so long, it's all starting to fade from my memory. So we will be having a battle of the Davids. This is going to be interesting. I like David A, but David C is more of an Idol. You bet I'll be watching next week, like, way.
Fantasia's performance tonight was just beyond anything we should have been forced to endure. I even would have taken that awful rendition of "This Little Light of Mine" we were subjected to a while back over what we saw tonight. I have to say, when they showed Simon's face and he was sitting there with that look of shock, I laughed right out loud. He was demonstrating what I know I was thinking. I don't think he'd be a very good poker player, with facial expressions like that.
