Three Songs for the Price of One

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.

OK...so I saw your name on Queen of Chaos blog and decided to follow it to your blog. I chuckeled when I read this blog. I TOTALLY agree with you about Syesha going home. I love American Idol. And I had taped Dancing with the Stars, and hadn't had a chance to watch it yet, so I got a good laugh out of finding out who went home before I had a chance to watch it. Too funny! Who would have thought that I would have run into it on a blogsite. I purposefully steered clear of any newsie sights just in case. I love it. I'll be swinging by if that is OK every now and then. I am new to this whole bloggin thing, and it is nice to find other LDS bloggers out there.

I thought David Archuletta did a great job too. That boy sure can sing.

Our next Blogging Babe get together will be:

Saturday ∙ May 17, 2008
11:00 a.m.

Golden Corral
Orem

Sorry, I've been so preoccupied with Alvin's surgery and recovery I forgot to plan anything. So let's meet at Golden Corral at 11:00, rather than 10:00. We'll get our usual room and just get together and visit. It'll be great to see you all!

See you Saturday.

The judges on idol sure seemed to be pushing for a David vs. David finals. My rankings for last night's performances:

1. David A.
2. Syesha
3. David C.

I wasn't wowed by any of the songs that the contestants chose for themselves. If Syesha goes home (which is what will probably happen), I think that she can blame her second performance of the night for that.

Tristi Pinkston said...

Kristi, of course you can come back!

Candace, I'm not going to make it to the lunch (sniff) but I'm totally there next time!

Dan, last night was definitely interesting. I'll be curious as all get-out to see what the results are.

I'll admit--I've been hoping for a David vs. David showdown. That said, Syesha has done so well lately. I liked what she did last night and thought the judges were rather hard on her because they want to see the Davids in the final and they've already made up their minds (kinda like me).

I'm still rooting for cute little David A! I even voted a few times last night (which I never do). :)

Kristi said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. You'll be seeing me alot more on yours. This bloggin stuff is fun. It gives me a link to the outside world. Love it.

As much as I love both shows, I can't wait until they are over so I can focus more on other things that need to be done. I agree on the David vs David prediction.

On dancing, I thought Marissa went home at the right time although I did love watching her and her super positive attitude.

Tristi,
I finished reading your book and you did a wonderful job. The history was amazing and all NEWS to me. I had no idea this trek had even taken place. Thanks!

Okay, I'm going to have to disagree. I personally thought that Fantasia was the best performance we've seen all season on American Idol.

(I realize that I'm in the minority...)

Marsha Ward said...

I'm with you on the Fantasia thing. I believe I understood about two words of the entire song. I can forgive bright red hair, but screechiness? No way.

Jen said...

I've always thought Fantasia was awful, and I really hope Simon regrets ever telling people that they need to be more like Fantasia to win the competition.
