But I Was Just Trying to Make It My Own

Dave and I are halfway through this week's American Idol, have you heard of it? Danny Gokey (I love to say his name, don't you?) is working on his tune right now but I still have creepy crawlies all over me after Adam's. What the heck?

He really could have done an awesome version of Ring of Fire without making it all squirmy and creepy, don't you think? Dave said it sounded like a 70's porno, I don't want to know how he came to that conclusion - what is his reference point? I love Johnny Cash, he is the bomb-diggidy. I could have heard that song with some changes and loved it, but seriously? Ok, stay true to yourself, but don't murder a song. It wasn't terrific, shut up Paula. It was awful. It sounded like... if there were a Johnny Cash psycho musical that was off, off, way around the corner Broadway. Adam is so self-indulgent, I can't stand when they do closeups on him when he is screeching because you have to see his tongue which looks like it is in the midst an epileptic seizure. I think Adam looks like a great guy, super nice, hot smile, but I can't stand his performances. I sound totally mean-spirited right now, crap.

On the other hand, I am interested to see what they have to say about Anoop, besides his hoodie. He did great. Lovely teeth, that kid. Just heard what they had to say, nice work.

Megan, I'm kind of mesmerized by her. Dave was kind of mesmerized by her two friends, if you know what I mean.

Here are a couple of other things I am laughing/cringing over :

Paula, get to the freaking point already AND let Simon talk!

When did the participants start feeling like they were there to explain how they were making the song there own instead of listening to the criticism? Just listen already!

What do you think? Who are you cheering for and who are you aching to be f.i.n.i.s.h.e.d.?

:) I love that you can blog AND watch American Idol at the same time. Please tell me that your kids go to bed that early? Mike and I can hardly hear the performances let alone the criticism with our ONE. I totally agree with you on Adam, sitars and originality have their place but please don't do that to Johnny Cash again.
I'm not sure that I have a favorite yet, Megan is definitely hip. I'm sure in a few weeks I'll be ready to have someone booted off - too early for me to tell.

O.k., so I haven't watched tonight's episode yet, but Adam totally creeps me out. Many people are loving him, but he makes me sick to my stomach to watch. He thinks he is the bomb diggidy (to use your phrase). I hope he goes, but fear he is here to stay. I love Anoop. I also really like Megan's voice.

We are learning alot about you this week...You love AI...you crave sugar even though you won't give in...and you don't scrub the crapper.
Matt is wants to know how you can live without cupcakes and clean toilets.
I am not embarrassed to admit...that I think we are the only Americans who have never watched a single AI show.
But rock on.

I'm not watching this season, therefore everything I just read sounded in my head like that teacher from Charlie Brown, "Wah wah wah-wah, wah-wah wah wah."

That guy in the middle is hot in that eyeliner, Pete Wentz, skinny-jean kind of way. Either hot or a serial killer - go figure?

Tia, do you not have DVR/TIVO? It is the only way to efficiently watch the inefficient TV.
Lizzie, call me when you watch it.
Mis and Matt, I knew Matt read my blog, I just knew it. The toilets are cleaned, it takes a couple of reminders but it happens. Cupcakes? Those look soooo good, don't they? Do you not watch AI because is always wondering what could have been if he had pursued his dream to be a tap dancer?
Mands, it is the best season yet. He is a little hot, but he is turning into serial killer.

I haven't watched since the second season but I did enjoy that you are noticing someone's teeth. You have me intrigued so I may tivo it right now but fear I'm too late to understand

I love Danny Gokey! Like love, love. I want him to win it! Wahoo! And I think Matt is very talented. Those two stand out for me right now. I thought that Alexis was the best female - I was sad to see her go.
