It’s Katharine McPhee’s Night on American Idol

March 28, 2006 by  

AI_logo.jpgI’m watching American Idol on TiVo tonight, so I know I’m a bit behind the game, but dude this stuff is PAINFUL so far. I’m going to be updating this post until I’m done watching. Here are my thoughts so far…

Lisa Tucker – She seriously tried to pull off Kelly Clarkson’s “Because of You”. Tsk Tsk. It was completely out of tune and I thought my ears were going to bleed. I think Ms. Lion King is gone this week.

Kellie Pickler – I know this is catty but did she gain 10 lbs since last week? Her face looked really full. I mean the girl is still a twig, but she looked different to me tonight. Anyway, she sang a country song (surprise). She wasn’t horrible but the song kind of sucked.

Ace YoungDrops of Jupiter by Train is a great song, but not when Ace sings it. He was really really out of tune from the first note on. I seriously could hear my old choral director screaming at him from CT. It was that bad. What’s up with everyone tonight? I hope it gets better.

Taylor Hicks – Thank you Taylor. Your renedition of Trouble was amazing. I didn’t even mind wathcing you tonight as you kept your epilleptic fits to a minimum (no offense Dad). And I also love his new haircut. The stylists are keep the grey, but moving more towards to Clooney-cut. I guess the judges didn’t love it, but I did.

Mandisa – I love your energy and your voice, but I didn’t love the arrangement of the song. I felt that she was a little bit behind during the whole song and playing catch up the whole time. No denying this girl has a powerhouse voice, but I wasn’t loving it.

Chris Daughtry – You know you are my favorite, but fair is fair, and if I call out Kellie Pickles for always singing the same type fo songs, then it’s only fair that I call you on ALWAYS sing the same type of rock songs. If you are going to win this thing you need to start mixing it up brother!!! I think What If by Creed is just a little bit too tough from American Idol, and the camera work didn’t help you tonight, as you looked a little scary. Hot, but scary. Oh, um, yeah…just what Simon said.

Katherine McPhee – Katherine took on Christina Aguilera and she pulled it off. Not as well as I thought she would, but it seeing that the rest of the contestants kind of sucked tonight, I’m giving the early lead to Katherine. Everyone has seemed a bit off key tonight. What’s going on? Paris Bennett…it’s up to you to save the night girl!!!

Bucky Covington – Oh no, I totally forgot that Bucky was still on this show. That’s not a good sign. Tonight, he’s gone back to his country roots and hitting us with a little Tim McGraw. I was bored. God, I am as pissy and hard to please as the judges tonight. I just want to be blown away my each performance this far into the show.

Paris Bennett – Is this the first time Beyonce has come to American Idol? Paris was definitely the best performer of the night, and she sounded good, but I think the arrangement killed her. The band did nothing to help the performance. I did like her moves though. She had a few jerky Taylor Hicks moves which I chuckled out.

Oops…you would think that I never watched this show. I was just about to start casting my vote when I realized that we had yet to hear Elliott sing.

Elliot Yamin – I Don’t Want To Be by Gavin McGraw – great song. I’m wondering how Elliott can mess up the words to one of the most popular pop songs of the past year. I personally LOVED his arrangement, but I wasn’t overally impressed by the performance. Maybe I have a stick up my ass or something tonight!! The judges seemed to love it. And on a sidenote, Paula is back on the crack tonight. Paula had to be handled again by Simon. Someone send her to the looney bin already.

Ok, so here’ where my votes are going tonight…

Katherine McPhee: 1-866-IDOLS-07

Taylor Hicks

Taylor Hicks: 1-866-IDOLS-04

Taylor Hicks

Chris Daughtry: 1-866-IDOLS-06

Chris Daughtry

My predictions for the bottom three: Bucky Covington, Lisa Tucker and Ace Young. I think tonight was the swan song for Little lisa.

    I found the show to be very dull. Nobody really impressed me. I’m suffering from the flu, so I thought my hearing might be a bit off, but I guess not.

    Oh and Bucky, who I can’t stand, sang Tim McGraw, not Tom McGraw. LOL!!

    I completely agree with your bottom three. We’re so BFFs.
