My awesome SIL here visiting so I'm going to be quick and I'm not gonna make this fancy. And by "fancy" I mean complete sentences and with the songs they sang all centered and in italics.
BigMike- He can bench 505? He went to a performance high school? He pouts his lips out when he sings? He chose a lame song? Yes to all. But he was fine. I didn't hate him. Definitely the best of the night so far. The standing ovation by Randy was a bit dramatic but no one listens to him anyway.
Eric- I'm super surprised the judges didn't like this more. It seems like he did everything they asked of him. Ah well. I don't care if he sticks around anyway. He seems 40 years old to me. Side notes: I bet Purple Haze would have kicked Nota's butt on The Sing Off. Also, TBone can count to 10 in Korean.
Casey- He's never watched AI? Booooo. He didn't have a TV growing up? Boooooooooo! He looks in a mysterious box before his performances? Wha? So, obviously Casey and I would have very little to talk about if we were to, say, go out to dinner or something. I mean how many times can I hear that story about his motorcycle accident that almost made it so he could never play the guitar again? Speaking of his guitar, waaaaaay too much tonight. Speaking of too much, Kara laid on the criticism a little thick. I think she was trying to put the kibosh on her reputation for lusting after poor Casey. It seemed like a pre-planned act to me. I give her two thumbs down even though I agree that this wasn't his best night.
Mullet- Wow. I have really turned a corner with this kid. So adorable!! I loved his voice tonight. He's much better with a guitar to shield him from this cruel world. I want to protect him with some kind of invisible net thingy that I can cast out around people at my leisure. I also love how humble he is. He's just a kid. And those dimples? C'mon.
Tondrick- He has good teeth. He has zero talent in choosing songs. I've discovered the problem though...he explains too much in his little video thingy before he sings. He was all "I'm gonna change up the song, but not tooooo much where you don't recognize it, but enough that the judges will say I made in my own, but I'm not gonna go crazy, blahblahblah..." JUST SING IT and let us decide if you butchered it! PS You butchered it. I can't wait to see you on SYTYCD.
DBag- He rocks his onesie and steam masks his face. How is this the first time I'm picking up a gay vibe from him? Has it always been there and I've missed it? Is it the afro-fauxhawk that's throwing me in that direction? I don't know. I was caught off guard. As I've said before, the boy can sing. I would NEVER buy his album tho. Ever.
Andy- Ooooooooh, he breakdances!!!! Does that make him a B-boy? I loves me some B-boys. I will say, that for tonight's performance I missed his guitar. I really did. This was by far his worst performance for me. I totally agree with the judges. Straight Up has almost become a curse now as he may never top it. Dang! I'm still rooting for him though.
Archy 2.0- Eh. Good singer. 16 going on 56. Why doesn't he do anything for me? Someone help me out here.
LuckyDuck- Is he Mormon?? 4 brothers and 5 sisters, prayed before his performance last week, has a good work ethic, no whining... all signs point to YES! I secretly hope no though because his performance tonight was lacking in all categories. He did have one good long note. The rest was poop.
Flem Dewyse- He had to go to an alternative high school due to some "bad choices." And here I was thinking he was just playing the bad boy rocker type. Oh no, he's legit. A rebel without a cause, if you will. I loved him tonight. Flat out loved him. He knows who he is and is comfortable with it and I appreciate that. I even loved him hitching up his pants mid-performance. He is also quite humble which is a rare quality in a rocker (he shares that with Daughtry who I adore). Let's now speculate on what some of his bad choices were.....
Looking at VoteForTheWorst.com, they have nominated Chocolate Country and LuckyDuck as the worst people on the show. I have to agree and adjust my predictions accordingly.
Gone: Eric and Dbag.
