Topic #2: Lady Gaga is skuuurrrrry. I bet Scotty was scared out of his mind to go have to look at her royal creepiness. Why was I thinking she would show up there looking half way normal? Yikes. And gross.
Topic #3: Leiber & Stoller... your songs are lame.
Topic #4: I'm sorry I didn't blog about last week's performances. Especially since it was the one we have all been waiting for.... buh-bye Jacob!
Now, let's proceed to some random thoughts on each contestant tonight.
By far the winner tonight (not even tied with Scotty & Lauren). He killed Don't Stop Believing. I was actually glad that Stupid Mean Randy (as he shall henceforth be known) pointed out the difficulty of that song because James makes it seem so easy. I loved it. Even his rocked out version of Love Potion #9 had me smiling. He is Adam Lambert without the.... you know (::whispering:: guyliner).
She looked like she was so pissed she was going to cry there after her first song. Stupid Mean Randy totally piled on the criticism unnecessarily BUT she shouldn't have been arguing her case with the judges. Just smile and say you did your best and you were moved by your song and that's it. But she has some spunk which I like. That song was a terrible choice though. Really... of all the songs you pick that one? It might show some poor judgement (like her unreleased Gaga song she did...why?). I did enjoy her dramatic I, Who Have Nothing song though and I've never heard that one before. I hope America remembers that one the most.
I've gone from tolerating the lad to despising him in one show. That Alan Jackson song is everything that I hate about country music. Lame, cheesy, unoriginal lyrics combined with an unbelievable amount of twang. I had to kiss my own cross when he finished because I felt so yucky. And then his second song?? What in the County Fair was he doing? Totally lame, cheesy & unoriginal. Yes, he & country music were made for each other. I wish them well.
I can actually handle this kind of cross-over country stuff. I thought Lauren looked great singing Anyway by Martina McBride and she sounded really really good. I liked it. The second song? Notsomuch. Really bad outfit I couldn't take my eyes off of and really cheesy performance. Plus, did Leiber & Stoller not write any other songs that didn't have the word "evil" in it? I mean, if you're that uncomfortable with it, pick another song, right? That was weird and, once again, reminded me of her subpar personality.
Bottom Two: Lauren & Haley
Going home: Lauren (hoping she & Scotty split the country votes)
