Wednesday's American Idol featured many impressions from contestants, and performances by last year's winner, David Cook, and Lady GaGa. The Bottom three were Megan, Allison, and Anoop. After revealing Megan was the lowest vote getter, the judges decide not to save her before she even sang. Here are our Idol experts with their thought on the night.
As the other experts can attest...I love Journey...especially this song...it's my ringtone. So I was both looking forward to it, and cringing to see what they would do to it. Listening to it with my back turned -I liked Allison's opening...but it went down hill fast. As soon as I turned around and realized they were lip-syncing AGAIN and saw that awkward staging and forced smiles...it made me want to cry a little.
I liked seeing all the craziness between the contestants, and the impersonations -that was fun. I hate when they play the stupid games to see who's going to be in the bottom three -stop torturing them, just get it over with.
I'm sure none of you watched David Cook's performance -because you're all sore losers. But I watched it and he was great as usual. He also looked a heck of a lot better than he did when he played York last week.
I really could have lived without Lady Ga Ga. I am so not a fan of this chick. Seriously weird and NOT in a good way. I only watched her performance because it was like a train wreck I just couldn't look away from.
I was not happy about the bottom three. Megan deserved to be there, but Allison and Anoop certainly did not. They might not have had the best night-but it wasn't THAT bad. I know Simon was talking about Allison when he said there was only one person he would save. Megan seemed almost happy to be on her way out. The whole show she was smiling and giddy -I think she's ready to go home and see her son. The only reason I wish Megan would have stayed is because the girls are so horribly outnumbered now.
That was a solid hour of Megan Joy being annoying. Her attitude was clearly a defense mechanism because she anticipated having to get tossed. She probably wanted to get tossed, just to get back to her family, which is perfectly understandable. Dancer X doesn't think she purposefully threw the competition; she just always sounds lousy.
But whether she wanted to go home or not, that doesn't excuse the Fourth Grade Valentine's Day Assembly stage antics. The obnoxious Rockin' Robin squawk, the deer-in-headlights beauty pageant wave... Dancer X figures America was probably trying to dial in AGAIN last night and vote her off even harder. Dancer X was considering boycotting Ford and Coke over Corkrey's nuttiness.
Ultimate justice was delivered by Simon, when he declared the judges would not waste their save on her even before she "sang for her life." Dancer X high-fived the TV.
Dancer X wonders if Megan will even participate in the summer Idols Tour. We'd probably all be done a huge favor if she receded out of the spotlight and allowed Alexis Grace back in.
Yo yo yo. Cheggit out. I called Anoop and Megan in the Bottom Three, but I was way off with my Matt calls. I knew I was out in left field, but I guess I was blinded by my non-hatred of Megan's performance. I guess I'm cool with her exit. She seemed like she was ready to stop getting berated and put down by the judges. And she's OBVIOUSLY excited to go home to her kid. And even though I defended her when nobody else would, I will only miss her a little bit. My question now is... Who's the pretty one? Sorry, kid, but it's not Allison. And until Lil kicks her odd wig habit, she's not the one. So... That leaves... Kris? Huh.
Anyways, I only caught the highlights of last night's show, and thought that, after reviewing the footage of Kris' performance of How Sweet It Is,
Anoop's impression totally wins for accuracy and therefore was the funniest of all of their dumb impressions of each other. The crooked mouth he pulls is spot-on.
And I know I don't always catch the show, but when the frick did that ca-cawing thing become a THING? Hate. It. Stop. It reminds me too much of Lambert's "singing".
But The Moment of the Night belongs to poor, poor Scott, or as I like to call him, next week's elimination, missing the mic for his lip-sync part during the Journey thing was sadly hilarious.
And now I'm looking forward to next week when Allison gets to sing something from 1993... I vote for Two Princes by The Spin Doctors! ROCK THAT!
Okay, So the Ford music video was super creepy on top of really bad this week. Really really Creepy! The mixing of the faces created some really ugly results! Especially the Lambert/Scott/Matt mix. It was absolutely frightening!
Group song was better than last weeks...that's all I am giving them though. Once again, lip synced (If you couldn't tell, you should have watched Scott, who couldn't find the mic when his time came to sing, yet his voice was still loud and clear.)...at least it wasn't pre-recorded this time though. Loved the impressions from the contestants. Anoop's impression of Kris was hilarious! And Gokey's of Matt was just mean (but still pretty funny).
To Julie's surprise, I don't think David Cook was horrible. I have new found appreciation for the guy now that I have Lambert to hate. Okay, I lied, I don't appreciate Cook, but he wasn't horrible. He didn't make me reach over and turn the channel. Lady GaGa was....entertaining. I love her music, it's loads of fun to dance around your bedroom to. But beyond Lady GaGa's choreography the performance was just bad...yet still better than Kanye's.
Bottom three...not liking the bottom three at all...except for Megan. Luckily Megan was the one sent home....and I could be wrong but I get the strange feeling she was happy about it. I think she was missing her kid, and that she got further than she ever thought she could in the competition. And her performance was better tonight than last night. Good send off. The "Caw Caw"craziness is over. Who is the new Vote For The Worst vote? While I think that Lambert is clearly the worst of the bunch, U hope they don't give him the nod, because I don't want him to get extra votes.
