<i><b>THIS</b> is AMERICAN IDOL!</i>

Nobody mentioned my pre-show ritual..which involves vodka!

crystal - CCR song - Loved it! very soulful rendition of this song - felt like we were watching a Crystal concert. would download that song tonight!

haeley - Miley Cyrus song - seems like it was flat to me in parts throughout - especially at the end. She is just too young or something - she is just singing words and nothing behind it. Being OMG 16 has its downfalls, I guess!

lacy - song: Kiss Me. K wasn't sure that this was the right song for her, but better than Landslide last week. He is developing a theory that you can tell when it is not going to go too well based on how they perch on the edge of the stage - kind of scared to perform.

katie - good song choice - fun, and certainly more youthful! But this song seems to sound a lot like the original no matter who performs it, to me.

didi - Bill Withers - kind of shrill -I am not sure I like the tone of her voice on this song. "Didi - she's a fragile flower" - K said condescendingly...

michelle- creed song - liked the first part of it, such an interesting choice - then it derailed and went way pitchy and off key..

lily scott - sam cooke song - hmmm - interesting take on the song! I think it must have sounded better in the room cause I'm not just jumping up and down though.

katelyn - LOVED it!!! thought it was beautiful

paige - hard to take on Ms. Kelly - and sadly, it just didnt' work. again, not really connecting with the lyrics and tone of the song.

siobhan - Great! Loved her energy and enthusiasm for the song and performing - she is infectious!









Going Home:

Haeley and Lacey

Dr L/K, I think our different takes on Sibohan are so interesting. I was so put off by what I heard as shrill that by the time she got to that big note, I was kind of done . . . interesting . . . I agree with K that Didi is a fragile flower . . . I hope Lacey goes home, but I kind of wonder if Michelle got lost in the pack.

Good point about Michelle...we had some debate about that here too. It has to be so hard in these early stages to create a persona for yourself - if you aren't a ready-made Idol personality (Bowersox, or Big Mike). It will be interesting to see how it all goes down tonight!

I will re-watch Sibohan again - I may have been quick to praise and just got caught up on that big note :)
