I have been told by my friend Wabes that my Idol judging is amazing so I am going to start posting my astounding observations!
Last night was a bum night. I think that Neil Diamond is a tough choice for young singers since they haven’t really heard much of his music before. I think that David Archuleta did ok-he is so talented that he can sing anything but there was no soul in it. I can’t help but wonder if he is still a virgin? I want to tell him to go get laid, get his heart broken, get drunk and then come back. I think it will take a little of the sweet and innocent out of his voice and hopefully leave him seasoned and more soulful.
David Cook is my man. He rocks-literally. Still it was a weak night for him too. He did ok. I cast my first ever vote just to make sure that his bum night didn’t get him accidentally voted off the show.
Brooke-ugh. Her second song was better than the first which was, as Simon said, “a nightmare”, but still, I’m ready for her and her manipulative vulnerability to get her ass out the door. Having said that, I think that Jason Castro sucked. He seems like a stoner to me. Out of it, inarticulate, and unmotivated. I think he has a great career ahead of him as a singer in college coffee houses.
I had hoped that Syesha would have been voted off by now but she is still there. I hate to say it but I think the fact that she is the only black artist on the show (I don’t think that Chikezie counted as an artist) is what has saved her thus far. She actually did ok last night so I think that she lucked out because now Jason and Brooke are higher on the chopping block than she is so she will make it for another week.
It’s hard for me to believe that this is the best that America has to offer right now. But – at least for this year- it is.
I am going to call tonight’s results and say that Jason Castro will get voted off the show. If he’d just go get a f*cking hair cut and a backbone and then he’d have a shot as he is pretty talented but I doubt that will happen any time soon.
So there you have it-stay tuned for more exciting commentary!
