Idol Picks

This is for you, Aunt Sandi. My Idol picks for this week:
My three least favorite performances last night were: David Archuleta. I know, I know...he's a sweet kid and has a nice voice, but there's just no excitement there. Every time I hear him, I'm reminded of my high school's production of A Christmas Carol from way back in 1980. That's what his singing reminds me of - nice, but more stage worthy than radio, you know what I mean? Next was Carly Smithson. Yes, she has a lovely voice. She doesn't seem to be using it to its full potential, though. And why does she look like she's so ticked off whenever she sings? It's very distracting. And this week, when she threw in a smile here and there, it was obvious that she was reminding herself to do so. Equally distracting. One more thing...I like a cool tattoo just as well as the next person, but does this chick ever wear a shirt with sleeves? Simon's right. She needs to chat with a wardrobe person. Quickly. Last but by no means least, my final pick of worst performance would have to be Ramiele Malubay. For pity's sake, America! Vote this chick off already!! Watching her compete with the other 8 is getting downright painful. I just don't think she's in the same league.
Now...for my three favorite performances. Well, actually, I only have two favorites from last night. Everyone else seemed pretty equal. David Cook was fantabulous, of course. Always is. And don't think I wasn't nervous, wondering how he would pull off singing a Dolly Parton song. But he did it and he did it well. However, despite my love of David Cook's voice, the best performance for me last night was by Michael Johns, who finally showed me that he's more than just a pretty face and an okay voice. Wow! If I wasn't an old married woman, I might be tempted to have that man's baby because YOWZA! That was hot. Smokin' hot. Oh okay, so I'm kidding about the "having his baby" part. Still. That was the performance of the night, hands down, bar none.
Okay, Aunt Sandi. I've made my picks. Now it's your turn. Anybody else have any thoughts on Idol? Let me know in a comment if you post about it. (And stop cussing me for picking on Archuleta and Carly! Come on....I know you are. It's just an opinion, guys. No need to get snippidy about it. lol)

  1. I just breezed through your post today. I don't watch this show so I can't give you a pick. Now maybe if they had Star Wars characters dancing...

    Don't know if you noticed but I have deleted my blog. Long story about love, hate, deceit, murder, revenge....OK maybe not... e-mail me if you want the gory details. :)

  6. I LOVE Jason Castro and David Cook (and Michael is growing on me a week at a time). Little David pretty much irritates the crap out of me!!

  7. I so agree with your picks. I am swooning over that Micael Johns every week. He's just yummy! I am hoping that Ramiele is out of there. I can't handle watching her. I skipped her last night. I was pretty mad that Checkizie went before her. The wrong choice by far. Can't wait to find out who's gone!!

  8. I pretty much agree with you too, but I like Carly. I don't care for Jason or Ramiele. David Cook, now he is hot! I didn't see Michael Johns because I was snoozing....I fell asleep during those long commercial breaks!
    Hugs, DebraK

  9. Hi Kari,

    I can't believe I haven't been watching this for a few weeks. I know who the young kid is and is that Michael guy the cute Australian? I just kind of got busy and lost track of it all. Funny about having the guy's baby though. LOL

  12. Kari,I think i'd like american Idol more if they did not show the ones that could not compete.I think that they are laughing at the poor devils that did not win the right to be part of the finals.

  13. Uh huh...I have to agree with you and
    see? I did not cuss at you at all. Really!
    So, when is you baby with Mikey due?? How is Randey taking all of this??
    Hmmm?? Not that *I* would ever have a crush on anyone on TV or in the movies or a singer or anything like that. Nope. Not me.

    I hope all is well...I hope I have not done anything wrong...just know I am so happy you are back.
    I missed you.

    Love,
    Sue

  16. I have to agree that David Cook is my favorite; I really like him. Most of the time I think Michael Johns is good, too. I think the guys definately rule this time.

    Hurry over to my blog today - I'm having a giveaway for my 100th post!

  17. I agree David Cook is so good, he's my favorite. Michael Johns is growing on me as the competition moves along. I also like Brooke. That's my top three. The rest can exit any time now.

  18. Your picks were spot on. I thought you said it really well. David Cook is my pick to win. Carly gets on my nerves, she sings well but I don't want to look at her. Does anyone else think she looks like Cher??

  21. You know I have been searching your blog everyday for that stamp, you are slacking!! No really I haven't been in the blogging mood either. Nick got delayed in Atlanta for one day, but luckily he will be home tonight. I am so happy to finally have him home. Hope you are having a good day. Oh got the package and I LOVE it all. The shirt for Kara was so precious! I still need to learn how to work the new tool, do you have one? It looks really cool! Can't wait to play with it. Love and miss you!
