Only 4 Remain
Was anyone sorry to see Jacob go last week? I thought it was well past his time.
Remaining on American Idol this week is 2 girls and 2 guys. Hmmm, I wonder how that happened?
Everyone gets a chance to sing 2 songs, which I like because you get more of a chance to hear what they are all about.
James - I still really love James. He almost (almost) can do no wrong. His first song tonight is Don't Stop Believing by Journey, which has been totally overused and overplayed on tv lately, but I still really enjoyed it. His second song is Love Potion Number 9 and he totally rocks it!!! Great performance.
Haley sings Earth Song by Michael Jackson. I have no idea what this song is, I've never heard it before. At least I don't think I have. Haley growls waaaay too much and I'm totally not liking this performance at all. (On a side note, her attitude sucked. She spends enough time looking at herself on the monitors to know that she is coming off looking like a bitch.) For her second song Haley does I Who Have Nothing and just like last week she totally blows me away. What great singing. For the second week in a row I am surprised by how much I like her second song.
Scotty sings Where Were You When The World Stopped Turning by Alan Jackson. I have never liked this song. Never. Still don't. Even though Scotty sang it very well, and you just KNOW he is going to have a huge career in country music. Scotty's second song is Young Blood, and while upbeat, I didn't really like the vocals. It was just okay.
Lauren sings Do It Anyway by Martina McBride. Again, I have issues with Martina McBride, but Lauren does a very good job singing this song. I still think she cut off her notes too soon. Maybe that's just me. Her second song is Trouble by Elvis Presley which she sings pretty good. She got into this song a little so that was nice to see.
Overall it was a pretty good show tonight. Entertaining at the very least.
Bottom 3? Egads, that's a tough one. I'll say Lauren, Haley, and Scotty. Going home? Haley. Maybe even Scotty. I do have this feeling that somehow someway it will be a boy/girl finale. Just sayin'.
