Syesha Mercado Singing “One Rock And Roll Too Many” (Watch)

April 22, 2008 by  

I almost didn’t want to share my thoughts on IDOL this week. After re-reading the hilarious recap that Glenn and Deb wrote last week I felt like a bad knock off in comparison. My own sister even told me that I should give up recapping IDOL in favor of Glenn and Deb. And believe me I would if (a) Deb and Glenn had time to devote to an IDOL recap each week and (b) I didn’t love this damn show so much.

And how could I not recap on a night where the IDOL wannabe’s were singing the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber? I’m kind of a Broadway geek so I was really looking forward to what the contestants were going to do with some of the most popular Broadway songs of all time.

So I apologize for an over analytical (and not very humorous) look at tonight’s performances.

First up is Syesha Mercado with “One Rock and Roll Too Many”. I really don’t know what to say. The girl has great vocals, she’s gorgeous, she oozes personality, yet week after week she’s in the bottom group. At least American has the good sense to keep her around, but I don’t get why she isn’t more loved. It’s almost as if the Simon finds it painful to give her a compliment.

Tonight Mr. Cowell really had no choice in the matter. Syesha was fantastic. The girl owned that stage and strutted around with major confidence. You would never know she wasn’t the front runner in this competition. She held her head high and gave it her all. I love her, what more can I say?

Was this ‘one rock and roll too many’ for you or did you love it?

    I agree with the judges I think it was her best performance. She was so entertaining and she sang the song really well.

    Syesha is in the bottom 3 each week based on her personality. She grates on my every nerve. No doubt the girl can sing but I can’t get past her annoying “diva” personality.

    I think Syesha was fantastic. She was a lot better than Jason and Brooke. Randy is right. AI has become a popularity show. They should introduce something called the judges vote like in UK’s Fame Academy. Then judges can step in on limited occasions to right the wrong of stupid young girls who will probably not buy the records in the end.
