Okay, I'll admit it. I'm an American Idol watcher. I've been hooked, more or less, since the first season. When I realized that I loved Kelly Clarkson.
For the last couple of years I haven't been as big of a fan. I usually stop watching the guys after a couple of weeks. I'll keep watching the girls, but eventually my favorites get eliminated and I stop watching altogether. Until the next season.
Like this season. I'll watch it for a while, and I'll make entries like this one for a while. but it will all stop eventually.
So don't get hooked on my reviews. Please. That's too much pressure for me.
Anyway, tonight the guys sang. This is always boring to me, probably because I don't have a vagina. But I watched, and I wrote down my impressions. I had a yummy Koningshoeven Quad (346) while I watched.
Rudy: Sang a Six Flags version of a Six Flags song. I know this guy can sing, but he chose to coast through tonight. He's a lot better than this. (80 points)
Brandon: I fell asleep he was so boring. I'm giving him 50 points because it's my birthday.
Sundance: Stupid name, but probably not his fault. Great song. He seemed a little unsure about what to do with his arms. He sang great though. (85 points)
Paul: His tone was way too low for this arrangement. The volume of his voice was also too low. (70 points)
Chris R: Drunken karaoke. Awful. (40 points)
Nick: I really like this guy's voice. I thought he did a great job. (87 points)
Blake: Great song. Started out great. Finished great. This guy really surprised me. A lot. (90 points)
Sanjaya: I fell asleep, and I only woke up when he mangled a note. Horrible. (20 points)
Chris S: I expected to really like this guy, and I was a little disappointed. Put him in front of a club band, and he'll shine. As a solo artist, not so much. (75 points)
Jared: Nice job. Forgettable, but nice. (80 points)
A.J.: There seems to be a rule that anyone named A.J. or AJ that goes on this show must suck. I shot pool until this guy was done. He gets 50 points only because it's my birthday.
Phil: My favorite guy from the earlier shows. He started out like his nuts were in a vise. Then he spent the next part overcompensating. He finished quite strong though. (75 points)
