AI - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003

AI
So, last year, the judges were pushing Carrie Underwood, who annoyed me, while denigrating Constantine, who I liked ("purely for teenage girls"). The year before, they were the cheerleading section for Fantasia Burrino, who just annoyed me week after week, pretty much every time she opened her mouth. This year... they're pushing... gasp... someone I like. I am actually going to vote for Paris Bennett, I think. The girl rocks. Also for Ayla, who's a hometown girl, but if it's ever one or the other, sorry hometown, I'm voting Paris.

ETA: WTF has Simon got against enunciation? I wasn't wild about the performance he panned that included a complaint about her enunciating too clearly, but the thing I liked about it was that I could actually, shockingly, hear the words. The hell?

Ah, see, Fern. You're expecting the judges -- Simon, in particular -- to make *sense*. Clearly that's unreasonable, and you need to adjust your expectations. ;-)

Speaking of being annoying every time she opened her mouth, I really can't stand Brenna. Posing constantly? And deliberately so??? Yuck!

Aight, aight.

Yeah, Brenna's annoying. I dislike her. Lisa's good. I hope Kelly Pickler gets voted off soon, because I don't want to spend all spring listening to her sob story. She's okay, but they've decided to sell her personal story, and it was grating on me before the end of her first audition.

I haven't watched AI until the 3rd season because I got sick of it quite quickly, but he complained that she enunciated too much? That's just ridiculous. For one thing, AI is traditionally a pop competition. People with rock or r&b backgrounds get onto the show, but it's still mostly pop and being able to hear and enjoy the vocals is one of the most important parts of a pop song. It would be one thing to complain about over-enunciation in a rock song, where the emotion sometimes needs to override the pronunciation (IMO) and where the instrumental aspect is more important. But in a pop song, where 87% of the interest is in the vocals? It's ludicrous to complain about enunciation.

Well, sometimes over enunciating just sounds very odd, depending on the song you are singing. It sounds off. In some songs enunciation is good in others it is out of place and makes the song sound awkward.

I just want bitch girl gone. That's all I care about. The people who mistake "being a strong woman" for "being a raging bitch" drive me up the wall -_-

And the friggen camera man isn't helping! Just like you don't feed trolls, don'keep putting the camera on the camera whore 0.o

But yes, I adored Pareis, and the first lady who sang (ack so bad with names).

I hope the guys do better though. I like several of the guys, annd Oh gosh, Ace is too cute *L*

I *love* Paris. She's not only a great singer with tons of charisma (I think she's the only one who fully kept my attention when she was singing last night), she seems like such a sweet, unpretentious girl.

I don't know what I think about Ayla - she seems like a nice girl and I liked her performance, but I think I'm still put off by her mother (which is completely unfair of me, I know).
