    American Idol March 22nd and 23rd!

    On a quick note I am sk8rgurl at FSU and I posted there the same subject, so I decided to post it here because I am so freaking exited about American Idol this week.

    So who do you all think is going to go this week?!? I think Mikalah is gonna go. I don't think Scott would last for more than... 4 more weeks the most. There are factors weighing against him.

    (1.) We already had an obese male winner.
    (2.) He has poor personality traits, if he has any personality.
    (3.) His voice isn't that great, nothing really special.

    I think the producers want Bo and Carrie in the finale. It is obvious they want a male and a female in the Final 2. Because last year they had two girls, the year before they had two guys. So they want a male/female finale, and what they want usually goes, so expect a male/female finale. I hope so, it better be that way. I personally want to see Nadia/Bo Finale.... so keep on powerdialing for Nadia because she in amazing all in captial letters.....

    I don't think Makaylah will be the next American Idol, but she DOES deserve an important prize for providing all this entertainment. I nominate Makaylah (however you spell it!) for the Tammy Fay Baker Consolation Prize.

    I think the final four will consist of 3 men & 1 woman. Who? It all depends on who is willing to stick around & sign the all consuming contracts that 19 Entertainment apparently insists these kids sign.

    Theme: Number Ones Still no guest judge.

    Carrie - Heart "Alone" Excellent! Simon predicts that she will win AI and have better record sales than any other AI

    Jesssica - Bonnie Tyler "Total Eclipse of the Heart" not quite as good as carrie but still very good

    Vonzell - The Emotions "Best of My Love" her best so far

    Scott - Phil Collins "Against All Odds" another good performance, could have done without throwing off the glasses

    BO - Jim Croce "Time In a Bottle" Nice job, a more sensitive Bo. I prefer Bo. BTW, he was wearing two of the crosses that fell out of Shizuka';s LP dress

    Anwar - Chaka Khan "Ain't Nobody" not my favorite Anwar performance

    Anthony - George Micheal/Aretha "I Knew You Were Waiting" very good

    Nadia - Cyndi Lauper "Time After Time" looked like the love child of Cyndi and Cher just OK has done better Her movement did not match the tone of the song

    Nikko - Cisco "Incomplete" OK

    Constantine - David Cassisdy (no that was not a typo) "I Think I Love You" he seems to be going downhill each week

    Mikayla - Taylor Dane "Love Will Lead You Back" HORRIBLE I was pulling for Mikayla to do well but this was just awful this song should lead her HOME

    Wow.......I had a different take on the performances tonight. I tried to be objective, even placing my favorite Nadia pretty low on the list:

    1. Vonzell....thought she nailed it and then sold it...

    2. Carrie.....powerful voice and a good performance....will she sell more than Kelly and Clay.......who knows?

    3. Bo.......Love him, love his voice and will buy his album.....

    4. Anthony......didn't care for his song choice, but he's got talent and appeal.....

    5. Constantine......I liked his rocker version of the Partridge Family song.......

    6.Jessica......solid performance, nothing special....

    7.Nikko........not crazy about his voice, still good performance...

    8.Scott.......good voice, o.k. performer........I don't see the audience appeal.....

    9. Anway....strong ending.......don't see the big "whoop" with him......

    10. Nadia...........this hurt, she's my fav. Didn't like the Lauper version either.

    11. Mikalah........can you say bye-bye? 42

    I like Bo better every week. Although who knows who the final two will be (remember all the great singer/performers who've been voted off before their time in past years), I'd love to hear Bo and Carrie sing a duet. As Piel said once, a little bit country, a little bit rock 'n roll. Actually, I like her better I little bit rock 'n roll. Seriously, I think their voices and styles would complement each other and make an interesting combination.

    Nadia: I think she could have done really well with a more subdued version of "Time After Time," but not a 1985 Madonna version. With #1 Hit week and her taste for the "artsy-fartsy" it would have been a great time for her to pull out "Psycho Killer."

    Constantine: I kind of liked "I Think I Love You." It had some cool moments, at least for me. Bizarre, but I dug 'em.

    Did my "close my eyes" thing for Scott. First time he didn't sound good. What gory taste in songs.

    Anwar: A great voice in search of a style. I've seen it happen to a lot of young teachers in dance who are also good dancers. They teach so many styles they cancel themselves out.

    Vonzell: "Best of My Love" not great, but bad. There's something too girly, doe-eyed, and naive by half about her for my taste.

    Nikko: No go.

    Mikalah: Must go.

    Can the judges even HEAR from onstage?! I mean, Randy's comment to Mikalah, "A little pitchy." A little?!!! That was two cats scr**ing off-key. That was an "ah-ooooooooo!!!" howling dog off-key. Even the one or two places she was on key sounded awful. I know there's a "Mikalah" every year, but I really think she's been the worst. Really, REALLY can't sing. And the Fran Drescher bit went from wearing thin to worn out in the time it took her to "do" that song.

    Is there anybody Paula Abdul isn't rooting for? She's for everybody, no matter how they sing, which renders her comments meaningless. I don't blame Simon for not wanting her cooties.

    "Give me the Cowl, boys, and free my ears/
    The show shouldn't leave me in pain and tears."

    I swear, there's a Piel gene for lines like that. I hope they never isolate it so rich people can afford it. You should only be born like that. You and Rgal, let 'em rip, make my day.

    Piel and RGal - you are BOTH a riot!!!!

    MAN did Carrie have her A game on. I've always agreed that she has quite a voice, but that voice was getting lost in the pack for me with her previous performances. New game starting last night, and I hope she keeps it up.

    Bo is absolutely solidifying is place at the top of the man pack for me. While I prefer his more upbeat rock performances, he certainly proved he can do the softer side too.

    Jessica I thought was also good last night.

    Nadia!!! You let me down girl!!! Hope she can pick it back up next week.

    My least favorite man is emerging as Anthony. He has a good voice, but isn't hitting any home runs for me.

    ITA Mikayla's time has come. Entertainment value is one thing, but GEEZ last night she made my ears hurt. Can't take any more of that.

    It will be interesting to see who actually gets the boot tonight.

    Reportedly no one is getting the boot tonight. There was a screw-up in the telephone numbers displayed at the very end of the show during the recap. The last three performers (Mikalah, Anwar and Jessica) had wrong numbers displayed (should have been 09, 10, 11. But instead was displayed as 01, 02, 03).

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...2005Mar23.html

    So they will re-air the episode and do the voting over tonight, with the results show on Thursday.

    Actually, I thought she looked like a ROOSTER with that hideous hairdo. As for her movements, she kept crouching like she was about to lay an egg! (And she DID with that performance!)

    Sandee.............Well, that's a major screw-up. I won't be home tonight to revote and I'm sure that will change the vote count big time for others as well..........42

    Wow on the phone number screw up...thanks for letting us know about that, Sandee.
    I'll make a few comments and then list in order of my preference of best to worst:
    Constantine doing "I Think I Love You"...I think it was a brave choice, it was pure FUN and I'm surprised Simon didn't bash the he** out of him for doing it.
    Jessica, best of the night, I don't know why I didn't notice her sooner unless her best is just coming out during these finals.
    Carrie has a good voice for doing Heart songs, good job! Liked her new hair.
    Hated Nadia's new hair. Thought she and Anwar had their poorest showings this week.
    I still can't stand Mikalah--nuff said on that.
    Best to Worst 3/22 show:
    Jessica
    Bo
    Vonzell
    Constantine
    Carrie
    Anthony
    Scott
    Nadia
    Anwar
    Nikko
    Mikalah

    IMO, last night was terrific overall; even the people who were a little off were pretty good. With ONE notable exception -- but she wasn't just a LITTLE off, she was WAY off....

    Anthony -- It took me a while to figure out how I felt about this one."I Knew You Were Waiting For Me" being my all-time favorite duet, my initial reaction was, well, that was just OK. Thinking back on it, tho, he did have the beginnings of a pretty good George Michael thing going on; he certainly did hit the right notes and when one does George Michael, that ain't easy. He's no Aretha, tho, but then again, who is??

    Carrie -- Wow. Where did THAT come from??? Absolutely fantastic!! The judges are always talking about "stepping outside your comfort zone" and she certainly did that, showing more range than I would have expected. The best performance of the season so far IMO.

    Scott -- This wasn't bad, but a little uneven. He's basically got a great voice, he just needs to train it a little better.

    Bo -- This, from a "style departure" standpoint, kind of reminded me of when Fantasia went out and did "Summertime" last year. And while it wasn't quite up to THAT (no AI performance before or since even comes close, IMO), it was still excellent. I'm thinking he just might win this thing.

    Nikko -- I don't like that song to begin with, but he did OK with it and at least didn't make it any worse. And bonus points for keeping his hands above the beltline this week.

    Vonzell -- Quite good, but vocally it could have used a little more energy.

    Constantine -- On paper, it was a bizarre combination of singer and song, but actually, for me, it made sense. I can easily see him as a grunge David Cassidy. I do agree with Randy that it was a little over the top, but, then again, when you boil it down, so's the song. Nicely done; this was the first week that he's impressed me at all.

    Nadia -- THAT HAIR!! YEEP!! Had to agree with Simon on this one -- very 80s Carnival Cruise Revue. Well sung, interesting interpretation, but I think she would have done better to just sing it straight instead of trying to rock it up.

    Mikalah -- Having her come out at this point reminded me of a few men's competitions from the mid to late 90s -- everyone skates pretty well, Elvis comes out and is incredible, Todd comes out and is terrific -- then out comes Alexei Urmanov to kill the momentum. I can't figure out if this chick really and truly CANNOT SING, or it just SEEMS she CANNOT SING because she's trying to do so many weird things with her voice that it covers up the fact that she actually CAN. Whatever the problem, she's gotta go because she proved last night that she doesn't belong there. And that rather snippy passive-aggressive comment about being in the bottom 3 last week didn't win points with me either.

    Anwar -- I give him a lot of points for having the guts to choose "Ain't Nobody" because it was an unusual, risky choice. He doesn't have the right kind of voice to carry it off, though. Then again, I'm more than a bit biased as I think Chaka Khan is a True Original.

    Jessica -- This should have worked, but didn't. She has the voice for it, but -- First of all, the arrangement was entirely too slapdash and choppy. Secondly, I had the same problem with this as I did with Carrie last week -- where was the emotion? If you're going to choose a song that features possibly the most emotionally overwrought vocal performance in the history of pop music (I actually mean that as a compliment in this case), then get at least a little emotional.

    The best -- Carrie and Bo
    The worst -- Jessica and (by about 10 miles) Mikalah

    It's interesting to compare our rankings from last night's performance. We're basically all over the place with some of our top three choices being the bottom three for others. Should be one heck of a final.............42
