American Idol Recap

I was so excited for last night because it was 80s night and I absolutely LOVE 80s music. It's my all time favorite! But I was left somewhat disappointed in some of their song choices. But...what can I do? All everyone it's TIME for AMERican Idol:REcap.



Luke started off the evening and tried to sing a Wham! song. He sang it way too fast and it didn't flow at all. I know he was trying to show that he could hit the high notes...which he did...but it just didn't work for me at ALL. It was definitely the wrong song for him to pick.





















I was surprised to see him start out playing the piano this week. Pleasantly surprised. He did a great job singing Phil Collins - Paradise, and put his own little spin on it again. He's got talent, this kid...
It wasn't as good as last week, but that would've been hard to top. Simon made a good point that perhaps he should sing something a little more peppy next week because his song choices were all depressing. Last week we were imagining no possessions and this week are being told to think twice about homeless people. Not bad messages, but it could get boring EVERY week for his teeny bopper fans.












Then came Danny...with purple streaks in his hair. One of my favorite 80s songs is Tainted Love...which he chose to sing. He gave it a new punk "spin" and RUINED IT! So mad at that boy. Tainted Love was....well.....tainted. Sigh. Needless to say, I didn't think he did very good. I want this kid to go away! But, I have the feeling he won't be kicked off this week. Too many scarf lovers out there voting for him.

























So, the stripping wasn't brought up. Which I am fine with. I was worried he was going to bring it up in his interview, but nothing was said about his days taking his clothes off.
He tried to sing Celine Dion. I didn't like it. He only hit a few bad notes, but it just didn't work for me at all. Guys just shouldn't sing Celine. you know?


























Michael started to sing and I was having instant flashbacks to the Breakfast Club. {great movie by the way!} "Don't you forget about me....." He did such a good job with it too. I'm starting to feel like he's showing a bit of an "I'm too cool for this" attitude. Kind of annoying me.




























I haven't really liked this guy. Don't know why...maybe just because I've already got my favorites and he's not one of them. But this week, he really surprised me. He was so good. He took Lionel Richie's song "Hello" and made it into a serious Rock and Roll {he played electric guitar} balad style song. It was wicked awesome. Now, I'm torn. I still don't want to like him...but if he keeps surprising me...I don't know...























He is my favorite. I {puffy heart} Jason. This Jason...and my Jaysen too. :0) He ditched the guitar this week to appease the judges...and it didn't matter. I had never heard this song before, or maybe he just changed it so much that I couldn't tell what it was...but it was beautiful. You can tell when he sings that he just FEELS the music. He sings from his heart and then when it's over, I think he realizes what he's done and gets embarrased. :0) It's cute. I want him to win. :0)





















Another one I don't want to like. Ever since that first week in the red suit....I'm still cringing. He sang a Whitney Houston song, and did a pretty decent job on it. He didn't wow me like Jason though...so Chikezie is still on my bottom rung list.



























Hopefully the girls whip out some great 80s tunes tonight for us. I've got my fingers crossed...

Oh! And my choices for the losers this week? Definitely Luke and Danny. Like I said though, I have a feeling that Danny will stick around and someone else will have to leave in his place. Hopefully David A...but I think his new stripper loving fans might vote for him. :0)

So I think your right about Danny, i guess there isn't good enough taste in america because he should have been gone during auditions. I have always liked David Cook. I think he is one of my fav.

alas, i'm not an american idol fan. i'm more of a supporter of dancing with the stars and the biggest loser! :) hope you get to hear some great 80s tunes, though!

Again, we agree with your commentary. I think what bugs me about David Cook is his hair. He needs to cut it or something. We loved what he did with the song. I think I may even download it.

I haven't yet seen the guys since Biggest Loser is also on. I do watch the girls and anxious for them to be on the same night. Thanks for the recaps.

Bridget said...

Amber M. said...
