American Idol - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003
American Idol
Okay, top 12.

Ah, Diana Ross. Brings back lots of childhood memories. (I basically only listened to my mother's music for ages.)

Okay. I like Sanjaya, but it's time for him to go gently into the good night of obscurity again. He didn't bring it, even boy-band style, and if you can't find a Supremes song to do as a frothy teeny-bopper number, you're just not trying.

Chris Sligh... dude, personality. It's your selling point. Show it.

Ladies in general, good show. I don't think any of the women is in particular danger.

I don't know... it looks like the men and women are involved in different competitions. The ladies--intelligently, given that it's the competition this actually is--are all about the singing performance. The guys seem to have some kind of guy subculture going on where they try to outdo each other in re-arranging the songs and doing other backstage technical things. Which means that, even though they won't win, they may actually have handy careers--you could actually make a group work with what they've got (I know they've at least got a keyboardist, and I think Chris S. plays guitar... didn't we see that?). I hope in the finale, they get that group from group day back together and actually give them rehearsal time.

I know LaKisha is technically very good, but for some reason, she bores me silly. I like Melinda and Jordin best, though I think there may be more to Haley than we've seen.

I don't like the boys' new arrangements. I'm with Randy and Paula; you've got Motown classics. Leave them alone, and just concentrate on giving a good performance.

I finally figured out who Blake Lewis reminds me of, and it's a little disturbing: Andrew from Buffy. I think it was his hair tonight combined with watching "Two to Go" this morning, but I was expecting him to say that they were facing Darth Rosenberg and no one had the midichlorians to do it.

Heh, I would have to say that I completely agree with you on all points this week, Fern.

Or as the ever-annoying Randy would say:

"Ditto, dawg, ditto"

Randy didn't annoy me the first season I watched (which was the second half of the second season). Then I realized that he has maybe five lines of dialogue which he memorized early on, and just keeps going through like an actor doing "I can't believe I ate the whole thing, dawg!" ;p

Very much agree with you. Sanjaya annoys me because his voice has no power - it's very flat. I really love Melinda and Jordin's a close second after tonight.

I was expecting him to say that they were facing Darth Rosenberg and no one had the midichlorians to do it. *lol...snort* I almost spit water all over my monitor. Thanks for that truly brilliant observation. I knew he reminded me of someone.

Sanjaya doesn't annoy me particularly (though I'm always annoyed at gratuitous hair changes... that's bad for your hair, guys!), but I feel kind of bad for him--he was put through with this group, and now the judges seem to be annoyed that he's still there. Guys... you have the power. If you don't want someone in the top twelve, don't put in him in the top twenty-four! D'oh.

Agreein' with this. I'm rooting for Melinda at this point (Lakisha doesn't really do it for me, either...I'd take her over most of the others, for sure, but there's something bothering me about her singing and I can't place what it is.)

Someone needs to explain to me why Randy still thinks it's okay to refer to guys as "baby" and girls as "dog."

Probably the same reason waitresses think it's okay to refer to me as "hon," despite the lasers I attempt to shoot from my eyes.

I kind of dug Simon deliberately using Haley's name. He went overboard last week with the whole "I don't remember you," and he seems to have recognized that. Probably because half of America bitchslapped him about it, but still. (And I remembered Haley right away; I seem to be the only one. It was because during the gong show, I remember thinking, "There's going to be a Haley and a Bayley? Eek, that'll be hard." Only Bayley got tossed.)
