American Idol: Season Seven – Top 8

Okay. Since I promised someone my review and I am a woman of my word, I bring to you the American Idol Top 8 performances of last night.

Michael Johns:

I thought his performance was like an impersonation of Aerosmith. And a very bad one. I am so “over” him.

Syesha Mercado:

A slow start to one of the greatest songs ever sung on that stage. However, when she took off, she really took off. The song may have been a little too big for her, but over all, I have to say ‘good job’.

Jason Castro:

He sand my all-time favorite version of Somewhere Over The Rainbow. And, even though I thought he messed up the lyrics, no one mentioned that. So I might be wrong. Anyway. He did the song justice. Kudos.

Kristy Lee Cook:

I never heard the song she sang before. So I didn’t have anyone or anything to compare her version to. I have to base her performance strictly on her own merit. I gotta give credit where credit is due, for not sucking. But I wasn’t blown away. Until the end. She got me. (I need to get my hands on that outfit.)

David Cook:

What the fuck was that? Um. I have no idea what happened. Much to my surprise, that was an awful song choice for him, he almost seemed off beat at one point. At least he redeemed himself in the end with the wicked coolness of writing the message to give back on the palm of his hand.

Carly Smithson:

Meh. I liked her makeup.

David Archuleta:

He sang “Angel”. Hello. He IS an ANGEL. I cannot believe this kid is only 17. His voice is so effortless. Love Him.

Brooke White:

While I stand by my theory she is a crazy person, she managed to close the night quite well. Maybe I am just way too emotionally attached to that song and therefore was temporarily blinded.

And there you have it.

Who do you think is in danger of going home on Thursday?

My Guesses?

Carly Smithson and/or Micheal Johns.

  2. Ahhh I miss American Idol!
    I can get it here, but some 12 hours later I think (8pm PST is like 8am Singapore time, so we gotta wait till 8pm the night)! Anyway, the day is all mess up for me – I’m one day ahead – so I haven’t been able to catch it.
    Look forward to going back and watching it 🙂

  3. Hahaha. I am still catching up, but I LOVE hearing your thoughts on them. Why do you think Brooke is crazy? I hate the way she licks and bites her lips and how she interrupts Simon (BIG no-no in my book) when he’s expressing what he thinks. Is it here eyes? They seem a little off…

    And I have a crush on David A. I feel bad cuz he’s so young…lol… Shhhh! It’s really more of a “Awwww he’s cute” kinda thing. Just going on appearances, his parents did a great job.

    Also, am I the only one who hates those God-awful American Idol Ford commercials (it is Ford, right? Or is it Dodge?) Either way, THEY SUCK!

  4. I don’t know what happened with my buddy, David Cook. He was off form. I can’t pick who’ll go but I’d like it to be Brooke. She unnerves me. Good review.

  5. RMH:
    Its a pretty good season this year. Hope you get to see it soon.

    Jillian:
    As for Brooke: Its her eyes man…there is something OFF with her all together.
    As for David A: I can only hope my son acts like that when he is 17
    And as for the commercials…..TERRIBLE. God Awful.

    Selma:
    I was really shocked and disappointed in him this week. I doubt hes being sent home though. Whew.
