So, Michael Jackson, eh? Dirty Diana, eh? Don’t want to see your face; you’d better disappear, eh? On to the contestants:
Allison Iraheta: This chick is really weird, but I do love her voice. It’s not all weird and studied like Adam Douchebert.
Danny Gokey: Good Voice + Dead Wife = American Idol Superstardom.
Matt Giraud: If that was, as Simon said, a “meat-and-potatoes” performance, then call me Spud.
Michael Sarver: He was wearing the Smile of Insincerity, but he relaxed and sang well… actually better than I thought he would.
Alexis Grace: Simon said her performance wasn’t as good as she “thought it was.” Granted, it had some crap moments, but all in all, it was good. Way harsh, Simon.
Kris Allen: Didn’t like it; didn’t love it. He’ll sit comfortably in the middle. Bringing out the wifey this early was a damaging move. He’ll be going home sooner because of it.
Scott MacIntyre: I honestly don’t think his voice is beyond mediocre. But Blindness + 70s AM Radio Hair = American Idol Superstardom.
Lil Rounds: She’s that contestant that is showered with praise that I just don’t get. I mean, her voice is OK, but it’s not breathtaking. Not seeing it.
Jasmine Murray: I dislike her and can’t wait to send her packing. Really, there’s no reason for her to be on my screen. Send her to the Disney Channel pronto.
Anoop Desai: Just like, DON’T DO BEAT IT. Great song, beyond cheesy. It’s impossible for anyone to pull it off without seeming like a weak imitator.
Jorge Nunez: I’m not sure why he picked such a dated song. It made him sound like he was auditioning for The Love Boat.
Adam Lambert: I think that it might be fun watching him live, but watching him on TV is excruciating.
Megan Joy: Rockin’ Robin? She freaking picked freaking ROCKIN’ ROBIN?
My picks for the boot… Jorge Nunez and Jasmine Murray.
