Trent Harmon Wins The Last American Idol

Tuesday, March 9, 2010

The Earth did not move tonight...and I'm glad cause we are in CA!

Katie - Breakaway.. mostly off key! I know our Ms. Kelly is cringing somewhere! poor song choice - poor arrangement - too much verse @ bottom of her register and not enough chorus in her range (per K)

Siobhan - House of the Rising Sun - WOW! what a performance here - great tone to her voice, and it just seems effortless - loved the arrangement. LOVES it!!
K says ' a little reverse psychology from Simon on this one'!

Idol seems to be playing a game with us this season - either the #1 spot is the 'under the bus' OR it fakes you out and the #2 spot becomes the kiss of death spot each week. I think katie is in trouble...

Lacey - Didn't know the song - but loved it! perfect song for her voice, BEST performance yet for Lacey - more memorable than most. Seemed simple and understated - lovely :)

A big shoutout to the makeup artist(s) on the show - spot on so far tonight - great HD makeup!!

Katelynn - I Feel the Earth Move - It was sort of whatev.. - the piano playing was kind of distracting tonight. Sort of flat. The earth did not move....

DiDi - kind of new and fresh interpretation of Rhiannon - a song I love! Smart move to bring the guitar back, and to reconnect with us. Liked the folksy sound of it.

Uhh what was that!... K says Idol production value sucks! what is up with the cameramen in the shot - hello???

Paige - Smile - Voice seemed really shaky - nerves?? And the end of the song was weird and off key. Just not happening...it really seems clear now who the bottom three are going to be (for me)

Crystal - Gimme One Reason - Fun, rockin' vibe - great performance! also an effortless. and self-assured. loved the electric guitar :)

Lilly - I Fall to Pieces...yikes! I realize I probably have gone to J's Island of Unpopular Opinion on this one. Didn't do it for me, not getting the connection with the lyrics and her performance. Warbly... K wishes if he could call this an 'anti-wildcard' - he would boot Lilly so he would not have to listen to her again.

Rankings

DiDi
Siobhan
Crystal
HUGE SPACE
Lacey
Lilly
SPACE

We have Paige at the bottom and deserves to go home based on performance - but just don't think she is headed home yet....
thinking we will say goodbye to Katie and Katelynn this week.
