Now we are starting to get to the good part of the show! I know I am a day late but dang! I'll try to do better although I'll be out of the country next week so I will be a few days late posting my review. Anyway, I have bolded my favorites so far.
"Do you want to keep the very attractive blond girl, or the other one?" "If it's any consolation, you wouldn't have won anyway" "What ARE you wearing?"
Top 36 Contestants:
Anoop - I support him because he's from NC and I do like his voice. What I don't like about him is his style. I think he needs a makeover and his eye is wonky but he can't really do anything about that.
Von Smith - who? He made no impression on me whatsoever. I don't see him going very far but you never know.
Alex - I liked him better than Cody but I still don't think he's all that great.
Adam Lambert - He has an "edgy" look so I think that had something to do with why he made it. I thought he was very dramatic with his singing and that he needs to tone it down.
Taylor Vaifanua - I like her, she's cute and I like her voice, it is very pop sounding
Jasmine Murray - She is my favorite on the women's side so far.
Arianna Afsar - who? Again, someone that I don't remember at all. Perhaps they just haven't given her a lot of camera time.
Casey Carlson - ummm...looks familiar but obviously not so great that I really remember how her voice sounds.
Megan Corkery - I mean dang, did I miss an episode or something because I don't remember her EITHER!
Mishavonna Henson - OK, I remember liking her voice and she has a nice look
Stevie Wright - I really wish I could say more about these people. This is turning into just a list because again I don't really remember her.
Joanna Pacitti - ohh yeah, this is that girl that had already been signed..I read on another website that they put her through but then removed her, I wonder what happened.
Kendall Beard - She made it because she has the "commericial" look. I thought her voice was alright but nothing super special
Kristen McNamara - her voice sounded better than Jenn to me even though I didn't like that she attempted Whitney. She does look a hot mess though!
Alexis Grace - Whoo hooo. Her voice is excellent although I'm not feeling that pink in her hair. I wonder how she'll do away from her baby.
Scott Macintyre - "Throw some shades on it", he sounds alright to me but I didn't particularly like his voice
Lil Rounds - Good choice, she is one of the best female singers in the comp. I knew she was going to make it because they keep playing up her back story. This should serve her well in the long run
Jessie - I don't think her look is as good as Frankie's but I liked her voice better so I'm glad she made it.
Allison Irahtea - 16? She has on entirely too much makeup and does not look 16 at all...this is why you have to ask to see ID fellas! Oh, and I liked her voice, haha.
Danny Gokey - He is my favorite contestant overall so far. I like the raspyness of his voice.
Ricky Braddy - who?
Matt Giraud - nice voice but something about him I didn't really like
Ju'Not Joyner - great voice, style improved since the audition show so that is a definite plus
Jorge Nunez - the next Enrique...sounds much better in Spanish than in English so we'll see how that plays out
Brent Keith - looks familiar but I don't remember his voice
Stephen Fowler - wonderful voice but he is a quitter so I don't think he deserved to get put through, oh and that hair is horrible....please cut it now!
Nick Mitchell - kind of surprising, kind of not. people will either love him or hate him, right now i'm actually on the love side but we'll see what happens
Jackie Tohn - LOL @ her taking her shoes off. I like her, I hope she does well in the comp
Tatiana - NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo!!!! How in HELL did she make it through???? Are you SERIOUS! This makes me want to stop watching the show. She gets on my nerves, I would be PISSED if I didn't make it through and she did!
Nathaniel - yes, what does he have on? I really think he made it because of entertainment value. He is a MESS, he is soooo dramatic and he will get cut early
Jeanine Vailes - I don't remember EVER seeing her
Kai Kalama - good voice but didn't do that well in Hollywood, I'll have to reserve judgement until next week
Anne Marie Boskovich - have like her since her audition
Kris Allen - who?
Matt Breitzke - great voice but it doesn't match his look to me
Michael Sarver - I think he is adorable and has a great voice
Tamara's Train of Thought:
-It's already clear that they are going to drag the hell out of this.
-Sing Off! LOL This is interesting
-Cody looks kind of scary and also like a girl
-I don't believe for a second that these people real care that the person they are singing against might go home....there can be only ONE American Idol!
-Dang you have to sit outside and listen to the person sing for your spot....that sucks
-If you don't want to sing against your "friends" then why are you in the competition? You will be singing against everyone else every night you sing.
-LOL @ Ryan saying that the sing-off is awkward and uncomfortable when I"m sure it was partially his idea to do it this way.
-I hate how they play with people, "it isn't good news....it's great news!" Just say yes or no, playing games does not make it more entertaining for me
-I thought they were cutting people that forgot the words? I guess not......
-They are so dramatic at how they cut people, this has to be soul-crushing
-I wonder if her husband resents getting cut before her
-LOL @ how Simon just cuts to the chase
-Simon is clearly ALL about the looks!
-If you can't leave your baby then don't.
-Some of these people already look better from their original audition
-Frankie needs a better bra
-These grown men crying like little girls is both sad and hilarious at the same time
-They are so dramatic with this seperation of the BFFs, doesn't it really matter?? I mean once again, they both can't win.
-How are they going to get rid of Jamar and let some of those other clowns (Nate) get through? I didn't particularly like him and I definitely didn't see him winning the whole thing but he was better than some of the people that made it over him.
-I don't like who say they will do anything to make it through
-LOL @ some people's faces when Nick made it through and at Nathaniel jumping out to hug him
-I can't stand how Tatiana is so FREAKING EXTRA. She acted a plum fool in that room.
-LMAO @ Simon calling Paula out for promoting her jewelry on the show
-ROTFLMAO @ people's reaction when Tatiana came out of the room, especially Nathaniel's
-Hell to the naw @ those skinny jeans....his story is sad but that still doesn't excuse that horrible outfit
-I don't like overly dramatic people, which is why I am not a fan of Nathaniel OR Tatiana and the fact that they both made it through really upsets me
-I'm not sure what the expect when they put someone on the spot to sing at one of the biggest moments in their lives
-Why do they always have them dancing at the end looking extremely stupid
