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.?
