Before I get into my reviews of the girls this week, I should point out three things.
First, I will typically watch the performance, then write my thoughts. Then I'll listen to what the judges had to say. Randy I can always ignore because he's a racist asshole. Paula I can safely ignore because she's too damn nice, and she may be drunk. Simon, I usually end up agreeing with. Sometimes, if Simon and I really disagree, I'll write something about that fact. But usually not.
Secondly, I'm in a bad mood.
Thirdly, joining me for tonight's viewing was Brother Thelonious from the North Coast Brewery (50).
Gina: Very good. That one loud and out of tune background singer should be fucking shot though. I like Gina. (75 points)
Alaina: A good job, but this week her voice seemed very generic. There are lots of people on the radio who sound worse than her, but there are lots more who sound better than her. I gave her a million bonus points for being so hot. I thought the judges were way too harsh on her, and I'd like to hug her and pet her to make her feel better. (1,000,070 points)
LaKisha: She had her hair redone. It looks good. She looks her age now. She did an amazing performance of a great song. Give her the fucking title right now. (100 points)
Melinda: Stupid song, but an incredible performance. She finished particularly strong. No flaws. (100 points)
Antonella: She looks hot in a groovy dress. A good song, but her performance was wavering at times and flat at others. I adore Antonella, but not her singing. Now I'm in a bad mood. She seems so nice. I give her a half-million bonus points for not being stuck-up. (500,065 points)
Jordin: Disneyesque performance of a stupid song. Much better than last week though. (80 points)
Stephanie: Maybe it's all the fault of the horribly stupid song choice, but I thought this was a train wreck. (5 points)
Leslie: Adorable. Boring song. I took off 100 points for that stupid skat stuff. (negative 40 points)
Haley: Disconcertingly pretty. I really like her voice, and I thought she did a good job. (80 points)
Sabrina: She's managed to gain some depth to her voice in the past week. Wow. (85 points)
