American Idol, Further Down the Slope (Updated)

Impressions of tonight's American Idol (at least, while I'm paying attention).

Aloha Mischeaux Weak, wobbly voice, boring song. Crap. Poor, poor girl. I'd boo her at karaoke.

Lindsey Cardinale Fun, extremely cute, lively, and singing crap I wouldn't pay a penny for personally. Oddly, I kind of like the song selection, though, because it stands out from the normal, whiny, breathy stuff we hear on this show. Not bad.

Jessica Sierra Someone tell her to stop trying so hard to be sexy. It's just sort of embarassing. The come-hither look makes me want to go somewhere other than hither. Wherever hither might be. Her voice truly bores me--it's typical, without character, and without charisma. Decent karaoke, but nothing better. As a question: does it sound that much different in the studio? Because the judges were drooling over her...

Mikalah Gordon I've despised this irritating, nasally-voiced little bimbo from the beginning. Tonight's performance, all fake emoting and over-done theatricality, did nothing to change my mind. Please, make her go away. Please. The judges, of course, liked it. This seems to be the way my night is going.

Celena Rae The most attractive of the contestants in my world. Unfortunately, that doesn't mean she should be singing in front of anyone. She wasn't particularly good. But, oh my freakin' God, is she gorgeous.

Nadia Turner The second most attractive of the group. I generally enjoy her singing, too, but tonight was a bit off. Bad song choice hurt her here: too much woah-woah and not enough emotion. Which is a shame because she has a wonderful stage presence and a solid voice. Not her best night.

Amanda Avila I didn't like it. The tempo was there, she's a decent performer, but it just wasn't there for me. Not the worst of the night, but not something that I'll remember tomorrow, either.

Janay Castine I actually kind of liked it--even though I haven't been a fan of her, I'm not a fan of the song, and I don't think she has the best voice. Figure it out, because I can't.

Carrie Underwood Back to boring. Nothing about this woman stands out to me in a good way or a bad way; she just blends into the background. Boring boring boring.

Vonzell Solomon To be polite, let's simply say that I don't know how she's still in the show.

Amanda is by far the cutest. Celena is second. Glad you hate Mikalah, tho. She can't get voted off fast enough.

Huh, and I really liked Carrie. So did Beth. She wasn't awesome, but if it came down to her and Bo I'd be happy.

I like the fact that Zombyboy's choice for American Idol, so far, could be "shrug of the shoulders."

I'm pulling for Bo at this point, although I missed last night.

Bo was good last night, again. Did Whipping Post. Oddly sang the chorus as "tied down to the whipping post".

You know, I stopped reading TV Guide so I could avoid knowing anything about that show and others like it.
