If You Thought Landee Was Judgmental....
...I've got pages and pages of rude comments on the night.
The first thought that came to mind when they said Frank Sinatra was "Ugh". Why in the world do they pick such boring old music??? Do they want me to hate the show??? Then they bring on Harry Connick Jr as the mentor. I didn't even know he was a musician. That is how popular he is in my mind. I also don't think bragging about being the musician for When Harry Met Sally is anything to write home about. That movie is OLD just like the computer HCJ was using to help arrange music for the contestants. It looked like this old "time machine" my dad used to have in our garage when I was growing up. Anyways, on to the contestants.
Fly Me To The Moon
I bet Aaron peed his pants with excitement when he found out it was Frank Sinatra week. His hair looked fuller tonight and very fluffy but I noticed it didn't really move as he did his famous legs-apart-while-wiggling-his-
body move. He sang the song just fine but it was a snooze fest. JEspy said it best when she said that she could hear that song on the radio today. On some AM station.
Love it when he pulls his hair back into a piggy tail. He looks less like Landee that way but it is better for him to not look like her. I actually kind of agreed with the judges about his performance. He didn't have his guitar and he did sound like a lamb. I wished he would have pulled out his guitar and rocked Frank Sinatra especially because his friends at home might start watching him this week. At least if he gets voted off, he will have $50 and a free meal from that gig with his friends.
I love her casually starting out sitting by the piano and then walking over to the mic when the music started. She is so chill and casual. J/K of course. This girl has bugged me since day one. She was very stiff and only had one feather earring. Where was the other feather earring??? Did it fall out somewhere??? Randy said he wasn't sure if she changed it up. I guess that means that Randy had never heard this song before. I hadn't either. She didn't take her criticism very well either. She argued back and not in a good, funny way. It came across very whiney and complainy. JEspy said she looked like a two bit western whore in her getup, as well.
Big Fat Mike
The Way You Look Tonight
I wonder what Big Mike's suit jacket looks like hanging on a hanger. It has got to be massive. Would it even fit on a regular hanger? Does he have to have special hangers for his suit jacket? I bet if he wanted to hang his suit pants on a hanger, he would have to hang each leg separately on their own hanger and then spread the hangers apart so it wouldn't wrinkle. His stylist would have to be very imaginative when coming up with ways to prevent his clothes from wrinkling. Someone as creative as Cinna, possibly. Oh, btw, his singing was whiney as usual. The judges loved his arrangement though, thanks to HCJ's 1940 music computer/time machine.
Lee is definitely the best of the worst. I don't how well he would have held up against Kris Allen or David Cook but against Crystal, Aaron, Mike, and Casey, he is awesome. However, I noticed he was dancing like Taylor Hicks. Moving around all stiff-like as though he needed to go big job. It was a bit distracting from his song, which was good. I think he needed some bag pipes in there. The best part of his performance was when Kara told him to write down "I Can Win" over and over and over again. It reminded me of this picture frame that Manic Mandy gave as a white elephant gift that had "I Love Me" written on it in puff paint. I L-O-Led when she said that. I can picture Lee writing in magic marker on his bathroom mirror that he can win. If he wins, I am going to write on my mirror in lipstick "Next Season Of American Idol Will Be Better".
My bottom three tonight are: Aaron, Casey, and Crystal
Going home: Casey :(
