Idol Thoughts: Top 5

This week the Top 5 was revealed on American Idol. I’ve had to say goodbye to a few favorites this week (loved Joey Cook and Qaasim Middleton) but overall I’m pretty pleased with how America has been voting. I’ve been voting this year, too, which is relatively new for me as I never really hadContinue reading “Idol Thoughts: Top 5”

Idol Thoughts: The Top 12

This week the Top 12 was introduced and then whittled down ever so slightly to the Top 11. They sang the songs they auditioned with on Wednesday night and a “party” song on Thursday for the theme “Get This Party Started”. The highlight of the week for me was Joey Cook’s rendition of ‘Fancy’ byContinue reading “Idol Thoughts: The Top 12”

About American Idol and My Real Life

So last night we watched Idol’s disco night. All the performances were fine I guess but the only two which stood out for me were Kris Allen and of course Adam Lambert. I’m not-so-silently pegging them as my top 2 at this point. I love both the ladies, but I don’t think either of themContinue reading “About American Idol and My Real Life”

American Idol: Motown Week

This week the Top 10 Idol finalists performed classic motown songs after being coached by Motown legend Smokey Robinson. It was a good time had by all in my opinion, I thought most of the music was just stellar, but some artists rose above in my mind – the front runners are becoming obvious atContinue reading “American Idol: Motown Week”

American Idol’s Gone Country

This week the folks at Idol got back to MY roots with country week. I’m sure a lot of people across the globe (my husband included) groaned a little when they saw this. I groaned a little bit less. Country music is not my favorite genre but I think I can fairly well judge itContinue reading “American Idol’s Gone Country”

American Idol: Who Did You Love?

Last night the new Top 13 for this season’s American Idol performed for the first time on the Big Stage singing songs by the one and only, Michael Jackson. There were a lot of ah-mazing performances that had me all excited and drooling… and a couple of meh performances that will put said singers inContinue reading “American Idol: Who Did You Love?”

American Idol Makes 13 A Lucky Number!

Last night American Idol announced their Top 12 13 contestants. Those last few seconds of the show were a roller coaster of emotions for me. I went from, “WHAT HOW COULD YOU?” to “OH MY GOSH, HURRAY!” within milliseconds. Then I thought, “What does that say about poor Anoop? Should I be happy they couldn’tContinue reading “American Idol Makes 13 A Lucky Number!”
