Okay... so again with the whole MIA thing... I actually do have some posts from the past few months ready to go, but just need to finish tweaking a bit before posting and I can't let tonight's episode of American Idol air before I let you all know my thoughts on the current "kids."
I've been watching since it aired in January and have kept up pretty good with who I like and who I don't like. Without putting too much pressure on myself I'm gonna make this short and sweet.
I'm loving Ellen. Or now better known as just "E." I'm quite happy for the disappearance of one Paula Abdul and the appearance of E. Love her! (look for a post coming soon all about how I was just 2 feet away from her in person, but later realized why she didn't run over to me and ask me to be her new BFF.) Oh and, how dare she..?
Anyway, I'm quite happy that she's on the show now and so far, her comments how ever vague they usually all are, at least when she speaks I don't find myself rolling the eyes and letting out big bags of air of annoyance like I usually do when I hear them each critique the singers. When E speaks, I listen. And on a side note, when Simon speaks, I usually rewind at least 14 times so I can laugh my ass off. Some people are completely offended by him, I just think he says it like he sees it and his smart ass'ness, one liners and the way he drinks from that coke cup all have me slightly turned on. Okay, that's a lie, I'm completely turned on by it all. So that is enough about the judges, I'm in love with E and I'm in love with Simon.
On Tuesday night we got to see the Top 12 Girls try their hardest... Hmmm. My first thought after watching was, "Seriously..? This is the best 12 out of the hundreds of thousands that tried out..?" hmmm! But here goes, here are my top few who I see has some potential.
Crystal Bowersox... She's very much the cool coffeeshop type of folksy singer...(just my type)
She's a bit too "Bohemian" for me, but let's just say that she does clean up nicely!
(we'll discuss her teeth and dreadlocks on another day, because it's time to move on to my other picks)
Siobhan Magnus... I can sum this girl up in one word: Quirky
Yep, just my type! Simon called her a "possible dark horse," but I'm just not sure if America will catch on or not, but I like her.
Oh, and she likes to wear flat shoes just like me.
Lacey Brown... I love her look, and she's an underdog.
I gotta root for the underdog, it's just who I am.
Didi Benami... I'd say out of all the girls, even though she isn't all that unique, I do love her voice the most. I hope she "spice's thing up" in the coming weeks or I can't see her sticking around.
Andrew Garcia... He "blew" everyone away during Hollywood week when he did his own rendition of the Paula Abdul tune; Straight Up... and yes, I found it to be quite cool myself.
I like his guitar playing and his voice, so I do find myself rooting for him. But, I'm not completely sold yet. I need to see a bit of a makeover and he definitely needs to wear collared shirts,
as the neck tatoo sort of creeps me.
Alex Lambert... not to be confused with that "other" Lambert weirdo guy from last year. This is one cutie patootie from none other than Texas. Just a sweet, humble, mullet wearing shy boy.
(just my type. M-minus the mullet) He's another underdog so I'm all about him.
Sigh... Introducing my new boyfriend; Lee. Lee DeWyze.
Just look at him. So so cute. AND he can sing.
He's all soulful and raspy, just my type! I'm sort of crushing on him just like I did years ago for my all time favorite; Elliot. ("I love you Elliott... call me!")
But, back to Lee... I'm a fan. All I know is, if he breaks out with a Dave Matthews tune, I'll be more than a fan. I'll be a Super fan. I might even have to make T-shirts.
"I love you Lee DeWyze... call me!
