American Idol - Top 9

I know I totally slacked off last week and didn't do a recap. You know what's amazing? Life went on! LOL!

Let's get right to it.

Tonight we have Dolly Parton as the celebrity mentor. So I guess all the contestants are singing Dolly songs.

Brooke White starts the night singing Jolene
It's odd to hear this song without Dolly's twang, but I really like it. Great job Brooke!
The judges are mixed - surprise, surprise.

David Cook is singing Little Sparrow
I'm not familiar with this song, so I don't know what it's supposed to sound like, but I really like it. I am a total David Cook fan now, and I think he did a fantastic job. And hey, the HAIR LOOKS GOOD TOO!

Ramiele Malubay is singing Do I Ever Cross Your Mind.
Ehh...Not horrible, but I still think she's pitchy. I am SO ready for Ramiele to go home!!! And for the record, I totally agree with Simon and Randy.

Jason Castro is up next, and he's singing Travelin Through.
Much better than last week, I think. Guess landing in the bottom three last week made him step it back up. I still don't think he has a chance to win, but I like him.
Randy and Paula liked him, Simon did not.

Carly Smithson is singing Here You Come Again.
I am liking her more and more, and I think she really did a great job on this one. I like this softer side to her.
Again, Randy and Paula liked her. Simon thought it was ok. And I can't believe he told Carly that she needed to have a talk with whoever is dressing her - TOO funny! (But apparently true, as I've been reading others say the same exact thing!!)

David Archuleta is singing Smokey Mountain Memories.
Good song choice. I believe David is back...SOOOO much better than the past couple of weeks!
And the judges agree with me.

Kristy Lee Cook - Coat of Many Colors
This should be an easier week for her since she seems to do well with country songs. Let's see...wow, I think that may be her best yet. I didn't even hear any really off pitchy-ness like I usually do.
Randy and Paula agree, but once again, Simon does not. I'm actually kind of surprised on this one.

Syesha Mercado - I Will Always Love You
For the first few weeks there, I wasn't sure Syesha deserved to be in the top. But the I think the last couple weeks she's proved she does indeed deserve it.
I think she did great tonight. I loved it. And wow - that long note at the end. I'm a little surprised at Randy and Simon's thoughts, though I don't know why I should be surprised by anything anymore. Oh well. I thought she did well enough to stay another week.

Michael Johns is singing It's All Wrong, But It's All Right
Again, I don't know this one, but I think he sounded fantastic. I loved that higher note at the end. Go Michael!!!
And the judges loved it - YEAH!!!

My favorites tonight - David Cook and Michael (David A. did great too, I'm just honestly not a huge fan.)

Who will be in the bottom 3 - Ramiele, Jason and probably Kristy Lee. She got a break last week, but I'm betting that won't happen again. At this point though, I don't think I'd be totally surprised to see either Carly or Syesha back there again, or possibly even Brooke. Though I would HATE that, I wouldn't be terribly surprised.

Who should go home? RAMIELE for goodness sake!!!

OK, now this season's premier of Hell's Kitchen is starting - I love this show, so I'm off to watch!

  1. I love your "recaps" of Idol.

    My bottom "3" for tonight are: Ramiele, Syesha and Brooke. (sorry, I know you really like Brooke). However, interesting enough, my local radio station said the following were listed as bottom three: Ramiele, Carly & Brooke. We will have to wait and see!

    Have a fabulous day!

  2. I agree with you about Brooke, David Cook's hair, Jason, Ramiele and Carly.

    I'm not feelin' Michael Johns though.

    Here's hopin' Ramiele goes home tonight.

  3. totally on your page. ramiele should GO. she's cute, but this is a SINGING competition. and I don't "get" the David Archuletta craze either.

  4. I found you thru my daughter, Steph. You are so on the money with your review of the Idols. I can't believe, I agree 100% with you. Ramiele's time was up last night. I think Kristy will be next to go. I am a David Cook & Michael Johns fan now. I use to really like David A. I am probably the only person who liked Amanda. Good review...I will check back again next week...
