"Hello, my name is Chris, and I love American Idol"
There, I admitted it!
I'm sure that I'm not in AI's target audience of young, hip, top-40 music lovers, (the number 40 is the only part of that phrase that fits me!) but I do love music, and a good vocal, and the opportunity that AI gives talented people.
For the first time, I decided to join other bloggers and journal my opinion about tonight's show, so here goes . . .
Anoop - his performance was okay, he's got a good voice, but I don't see him as a true artist.
Megan - honestly, I really hope this is the last week I have to listen to her voice.
Danny - my FAVORITE! I just love his voice and he was outstanding tonight; the minute he starts to sing I wish that he could keep singing the rest of the night - he's got a great gift, I'd buy his album.
Allison - (was she trying to look like Pebbles Flintstone tonight?) she's talented, has a good strong voice that's very mature for her age, but I'm just not a rocker girl so she's not one of my favorites; didn't really like tonight's song.
Scott - he sang well tonight and is a great pianist; he may have a long career ahead of him, though not in the pop genre; a little boring sometimes(or predictable, as Simon would say, although he actually didn't tonight!), but nice.
Matt - a fellow Michigander; I like him, but he seemed off-key some of the time tonight; I didn't think the song was a good fit for him, but I don't think he should be in the bottom 3 again.
Lil - this didn't seem to be a good song choice for her, she sounded off-key also; what's happened to her the past few weeks? I liked her better at the beginning of the season.
Adam - he was okay although I didn't really like the song. I do think he's a talented artist who knows what he's doing and can make songs his own, so he'll probably be around for a while; at least he didn't have black nail polish on again tonight or completely freak me out like he did when he sang "Ring of Fire"!
Kris - I've been liking him more and more each week; this was a nice arrangement; he did a great job tonight; he seems to growing as an artist also.
Well, for what it's worth, that's what I thought of tonight's show. And now I have to go to bed; it's past my bed time. Goodnight!
