AI week 2 guys top 20

* means 2 of the 3 will go home this week

Phil - Agree with Simon. Karaoke. Wedding singerish... I really like him though.

Jared - WAY pitchy! I like it though. It was sexy...


*Sanjaya - The american public doesn't get vocal difficulty and though he did (just) ok, I think that may have killed him.

Chris sligh - Reminds me of Dave matthews a little or the blues travelers and I think he needs to stick to that genre (as he did tonight). The song was a little weak but I REALLY like him still.

Nick - Soulful... smokey... Screwed up timing at the end. Pitchy in one spot. He definately needed a black suit with a black shirt and a black hat with a red band and a bright solid read tie.

Blake - PERFECT song for him. Jamiroquai is fantastic and I am a big fan of his. Wish he was more popular here in the states. The scatting ROCKED! I did think it was a little pitchin spots though. Still good though

*Brandon - Totally sweet sentiment... WAS NOT THERE THOUGH. I think it sucked and he may be gone.

Chris Richardson - I thought it was pitchy... but the judges seemed to think differently... I do think he is one of the guys top contenders though

*Sundance Head - I liked him before the semifinals... I dont think I like him much anymore :( He belongs in a bar in Vegas WAAAAAAAAAY better than last week though. Funny what they did witht he kids picture HA HA.

American Idol results show week one

Paul goes home. There were worse guys, FAR worse.

Barba stays? Are you SERIOUS?!!?

Amy gone. Not surprised.

Nicole is gone. I am surprised. She isn't as pretty as Antonella Barba and maybe that is how she got voted out. Stumped. She wasnt going to win the thing anyhow. Listening to her sing it again I can see how she was voted off LOL

Rudy is gone. Guessed that.

25% accuracy... I will shape up next week ;)

American Idol top 12 girls (week 1)

In order of appearance:

Stephanie Edwards - she will be one of the top 5 unless she majorly screws up... She started off the girls RIGHT!

*Amy Krebbs - Couldn't hit the low notes... If you are going to do Bonnie Raitt, you have to be good and she killed it. Way off pitch in some parts :( Still better than some the guys

Leslie Hunt - Love her personality... she is weird. LOVED THE OUTFIT! But I don't think she is the next American idol... Once she gets into it she is good

Sabrina Sloan - She BUGS me for some reason but she has some pipes... Again, top five unless she screws up...

*Antonella Barba - I think her maturity is lacking quite a bit for this competition. NERVOUS and it showed in her pitch and shaky thing... and I heard she posed naked and may be thrown out anyhow

Jordin Sparks - Pitchy in spots... When she pushes she is great... though the last note went sharp from pushing... hmmmm I don't think she is quite there (believe it or not, I wrote this BEFORE the judges comments LOL... maybe I should apply for a judge position!)

Nicole Traquillo - beginning was horrible out of tune ESPECIALLY the low notes and her dancing (if that is what you call it) was insanely horrid, I hated it but I don't think she is out this round

*Haley Scarnato - shaky, out of tune in several spots... really good karaoke singer with a vibrato you can drive a semi truck through

Melinda Doolittle - Top 5, without doubt... she CAN nail the diva songs. A mini Aretha... WOW Not a note out of tune.

*Alaina Alexander - YUCK, and a horrible song choice...

Gina Glocksen - This song was done by Christina Aguilera... no one can outdo her, so... with that said, I think she did a fantastic job... OK Edit... she just finished the song and NAILED the middle and end... holy hell... if she keeps that up, she (pause) may (pause) go (pause) all (pause) the (pause) WAY. I think Simon is wrong and when he hears it back he will know he was wrong.

Lakisha Jones - I hope this one goes far... she is very humble... HORRIBLE OUTFIT... I want to see the power singers like this sing soft too... not just belt... She is good though... top 10 for sure... I don't think she was as GREAT as Simon though. She has pipes though

All in all, this night was far better than last night and it proves to me that this year is a girls Idol. No question. Very few of the guys have personality.

Worst to best:

American Idol top 12 guys week 1

In order of appearance:

(gone) 1 Rudy Cardenas - wedding singer or karaoke... no better... EW

2 Brandon Rodgers - HORRIBLE choice of song. Wedding singer, or karaoke for him too... terrible, and I had high hopes for him

(gone, sadly) 3 Sundance Head - YUCK YUCK YUCK! He NEEDS to stick to blues.. he was one of my faves too!

4 Paul Kim - better than the other 3 so far... Had high hopes for him too... think he blew that, put shoes on!

5 Chris Richardson - Outfit was bad, started out too shaky and his dad has NO RHYTHM! He changed the notes in the song and did well with that... best so far tonight

6 Nick Pedro - I like his smokey tone... had pitch issues... bad song :(

7 Blake Lewis - Husband and I love the song he did (by Keane), he did OK with it... I agree with Simon about the beat-boxing and the genre... It is a singing competition. However, I think the beat-boxing NEEDS to be brought back at some point... he EXCELS at that

8 Sanjaya Malakar - It was good... I think he has one of the best voices in the competition... pitch was shaky and/or off in a few parts plus it was a little boring

9 Chris Sligh - pitchy... it was OK... he is one of my faves though. I like his style and humor... he was a little too dark with Simon at the end :( makes them look bad when they do that.

10 Jared cotter - MAJOR flat. He did not really make the song his own. Great falsetto though

11 AJ Tabaldo - flat the whole way through, Paula was dancing through the whole thing, Why?

12 Phil Stacey - Another of my faves... too bad he sounded like a wedding singer at the beginning... of course the bridge rocked but the whole song needed to rock... too mellow at the beginning... best one by FAR though

All in all... TOTALLY disappointed in the guys... What is up with the crappy 80's songs?!?! and WAY too many ballads... if the last guy keeps up the energy, he is in the top 3 for sure.

In order - best to last
