I totally wasn't going to do my Idol post this week. I'm leaving for Moab this afternoon, and I do not have time to be posting. But after what Carrie wrote in my comments about David Cook, I couldn't resisit posting. Last night was so much better than the week before.
David Cook was actually the last to perform, and he sang Billie Jean the old Michael Jackson 80s hit. Although it sounded nothing like the original - it was really good - kind of an emo/rock ballad. Loved it! He's in a league of his own. And I do think he's such a little hottie. He reminds me so much of Chris Daughtry, but (dare I say) even better. And much like CD, I hope David doesn't win AI. He'd do much better with his own album instead of the cheese the winner has to record. He'd make a much better indie rock-type album.
Here's my take on the rest of the group:
Ramielle - snooze. I think she may be in trouble.
Jason Castro - I still like this guy, although he's starting to remind me of Jack Johnson - it all sounds too much alike. I could listen to one or two songs, but never an entire album.
Syesha - I know the judges liked her, but I just thought she was "a'right". Not my favorite style of music at all.
Chikezie - vocally he sounded good, but I don't "get" that genre of music. Not my style at all.
Brooke White - I really like her when she sits at the piano to sing - she's so pure. I'd buy her album
Michael Johns - Loved him tonight. He's proven that Queen songs work for him. I'm glad he got a chance to shine - and I got another chance to swoon. he he
David A - I think he peaked too early in the competition. He was already a seasoned performer, so he stood out at the beginning. But now as the other contestents are improving, he's not. I no longer think he'll win - unless he really steps up his game.
Carly - UGH. Does anyone in the world actually like that song? Horrid! i'm sorry, but she has got. to. go. period.
Kristy - I'm such a cheese-ball, because I love that song. And she did really well.
ANd of course David, who I cannot help but mention again. I want to buy his album. Now. (or at least download it from iTunes)
