Okay, this is my review of American Idol last night. I got two hours of crocheting done, but then realized that I did it wrong. Bother.
Last night's theme was Lennon/McCartney songs. I had a feeling this was going to be bad.
Syesha Mercado ~ "Got To Get You Into My Life"
Eh, not bad I guess, just not my thing...I rounded up my crocheting stuff while she was singing. *shrug*
Chikezie ~"She's A Woman"
I'm not a big fan of Chikezie, but I rather enjoyed this, it was fun to watch anyway! The thing that bugged me the most was the fact that his wristband and vest matched, but not his tie. Aahh! And Ryan bouncing around the stage was rather disturbing.
Ramiele Malubay ~ "In My Life"
*yawn* Oh, was she any good? I fell asleep.
Jason Castro ~"If I Fell"
And that didn't wake me up either. I like Jason, but he needs to change it up a bit.
Carly Smithson ~"Come Together"
Now that was interesting...although I think she messed up the lyrics. "Got to be good-lookin', cause he's so hard to see" comes after the last verse, not the one she sang it after.
David Cook ~"Eleanor Rigby"
Ah, now this I liked. It was a slightly strange arrangement, but it came off well. I voted for David last night. And either they have more phone lines this year, or no one else was voting for him, because I got through 60 times and it only took about 5 minutes of my time.
Brooke White ~"Let It Be"
Hmm...I like her, but that was a little boring.
David Hernandez ~"I Saw Her Standing There"
He worked in a "pizza bistro", huh? That's not what I heard.
Cheesy, very cheesy, and he looked terrified.
Amanda Overmyer ~"You Can't Do That"
I didn't understand a word she said!
Michael Johns ~"Across The Universe"
I keep expecting him to be better, but he always falls just short of being good. Strange.
Kristi Lee Cook ~"Eight Days A Week"
Ah, uh, hmm. I was laughing half the time, and shaking my head sadly the other half. Country version...country...oh dear.
David Archuleta ~"We Can Work It Out"
Aaaahhhhhhh! Okay, I take that back, Kristi wasn't too bad after all. Not compared to that. If you didn't watch the show, I'm sure you can find a video on YouTube of David A. and you can see how he licks his lips after every phrase he sings, and giggles nervously every five seconds when he's not singing. Just whatever you do, do not come back here and say that he's so adorable, and you just want to pat him on the head and give him a hug, because if you do so, I guarantee that you will hear me screaming, no matter how far away you live.
I'm just saying.
David tells us that he really likes this song. So did I. "Did" being the important word there. That was just, just....I'm speechless. *Runs to find an mp3*
Ah, much better: We Can Work It Out
