Haven't written about American Idol yet this season, but I'm watching. Oh yes. I'm utterly and unabashedly addicted to trashy reality tv. Mmmmm. A few notes on tonight's performance (written in real-time, as the show is rolling): Ryan: Like his outfit tonight. Very snappy. I'm getting TubaDad one of those polka-dot ties for Father's Day. Quentin Tarantino: Wow. Cool. Allison: She's one of my two favorites this season. Love her. Really. But... didn't really love this performance. Not sure why. Maybe the song is just too tied to Tyler's voice? I kind of like it better when she takes a normal or plain song and "Allifies" it. Anyhow, she still gets my vote. Anoop: Nice singing. He sounded good. And I'm really glad he made it to the top 10 and will go on the AI tour, because he's personable and likable and all that. But there is no way he'll make it to the end. No way. At this point in the show I got annoyed that we only get to hear two judges talk about each singer. Because, frankly, I want to hear from Paula (comedic) and Simon (always right) every time and don't care what Randy or Kara think. Adam: Whoohoooooo! If he isn't in the finals, I'll give up chocolate for a month. The boy has talent. And he's riveting. I thought last week's performance was better than this one (it would be hard to top last week's in my opinion). But damn! Oh goodie, we get to hear Paula and Simon on this one. Matt: Yawners. This dude is just boring to me. Actually had to pause and rewind because I spaced out and started reading email. Oops. What is he singing? Eh. Back to e-mail for a few minutes. Danny: Is Quentin really tall or is Danny really short? Hate this Endless Love song, by the way. Curious to see what he does with it. Hm... Didn't love it, the last half was better than the first, though. Seemed like he was gulping for air during it, and maybe struggling for the lyrics or his gestures or something? Anyhow, I like him, he seems really genuine and a truly nice guy. And he's got a nice voice, but I don't think I'd fork over a bunch of money to see him in concert or anything. Chris: Wow, Quentin is WAY taller than he is. He's cute, in a puppyish kind of way. Sort of wholesome. Singing sounded good tonight, I thought. Lil: Wow, she looks great... but (Oops, now I'm giving out the back-handed Paula compliment.) Whoever is styling her seems to do better and better each week. I thought she sounded great in the very beginning of the season, and was really rooting for her. But the last three or so songs have just been okay for me. Not bad, but nothing to make my heart thrill (or, more importantly, to make my dialing fingers leap to action). Alright, off to go vote for Allison and Adam. Then it's off to bed. TubaDad's playing a symphony tonight, so he'll get home sometime around 1am. Eeesh. He's not going to get enough sleep tonight and he missed American Idol. Poor guy.
