Every season, for the past couple at least, I do this. Usually, after a few weeks, I get sick of the voters being so stupid and I stop watching. There'll never be another Kelly anyway.
Anyway, since I don't plan to sleep until probably Sunday, I went ahead and watched the Tuesday and Wednesday performances.
These are the notes I took while watching. I take these notes before listening to the judges comments. The scores I assign are completely arbitrary.
Mandisa: Stupid name. A blah, boring performance except when she missed notes, then she sucked. (60 points)
Kellie: Smoldering hot. She lost track of what key she was singing in a few times. I really like her voice though. (70 points)
Becky: Yummy. She mumbled her way through the song, and she seemed to use at least three different singing voices, and she missed some notes. I still liked her though, and I don't think it's only because she's so cute. (70 points)
Ayla: I thought she did a very good job, but I couldn't shake the Disney soundtrack vibe I got from her performance. (80 points)
Paris: She's just an adorable little thing, and a wonderful talent. She doesn't need this show. (95 points)
Stevie: Hot, and she knows it. She says the word opera too often. She seems a little full of herself. I like her voice - it's nice and pure. Pretty good. (75 points)
Brenna: Quite cute. I hate the song she sang, and her singing didn't make up for it. Not at all. She's funny and charming though. (60 points)
Heather: Quite hot. Weird, her voice doesn't match her appearance. Beyond that, nothing remarkable. (65 points)
Melissa: Wow, another hot girl. I love her speaking voice, and she carried that into her singing. She did mumble a lot though. I like her. (75 points)
Lisa: One of my favorites all along. She's another Tamyra Gray. Wow. (85 points)
Kinnik: Stupid name, stupid song choice, boring performance. (65 points)
Katharine: Hot. She looked like she was having a seizure while singing. She sang the shit out of the song though. (85 points)
If I were America, I'd eliminate Mandisa and Kinnik this week. Unfortunately for me, I'm not America, so I expect one or both of them to stay in while someone more deserving gets eliminated. Probably Heather and Ayla if I had to guess.
And, for the more important question - if all of the hot girls came to me and offered themselves to me sexually, and I had to pick just one, who would it be?
Kellie, without a doubt. She's marryin' material.
The guys are never as good as the girls on this show, and I don't think this season will prove me wrong.
Patrick: Great song. It's tough going first I bet. Good but not great performance. (70 points)
David: Cool name. A one-trick pony. This asshole will probably stay week after week while more talented singers get eliminated. I hate him already.
Bucky: Bucky? Are you fucking kidding me with that name? Great song, and he sang it very well. He's got a very unique voice. (80 points)
Will: Stupid song. This guy is probably good in his high school plays. (65 points)
Jose: The falsetto was a surprise, and not a particularly good one for me. This guy can do better than this. (70 points)
Chris: He looks familiar to me. He's one of my favorites. He sang a great song, and had a great but forgettable performance. He could go a long way in this competition. (85 points)
Kevin: The question with this guy is - Does he sing well enough to make up for being such a nerd? And the answer is no. A good song choice and a good performance. (75 points)
Gedeon: He spells his own name wrong, and he talks like a preacher. He sang well though. This was the first time I've liked him. (80 points)
Elliott: He seemed very nervous, and he picked a shitty song. A boring and forgettable performance. I do like his voice though. (65 points)
Bobby: Stupid song. This guy should be singing at weddings, not on my TV, and certainly not on my radio. (60 points)
Ace: Probably a finalist because the chicks like him. It helps that he sings very well. Second best of the night. (86 points)
Taylor: Great song. This guy is a great singer, even if he does seems a little cheesy at times. Best of the night, but just barely. (87 points)
The problem with making predictions for the guys is that it's all teenage girls doing the voting. I'd like to see David and Kevin go home, but because teenage girls are, well, teenage girls, I expect it to be somebody with more talent that leaves. Maybe Bobby and/or Gedeon.
