American Idol – Top 14 – Almost Deja Vu

So… anyone notice anything about last night show that drove them absolutely crazy? Let me just remind you of a little graphic I made of things that are ok to have repeats:
repeat
Still no American Idol songs on there – and yet, here we are, with another night of repeat songs. I don’t know what producer thinks it’s a good idea but it drives me absolutely crazy. I mean we are JUST getting to the live shows! Why are you singing songs that we JUST heard? Hopefully if nothing else, this is them getting it out of the way early so they don’t do it again. I read that the reason they got to do a repeat song tonight is because they still had to learn a song for tomorrow (even if they don’t end up performing).
Another thing that bothered me was that with all the hype of the return of the one true Idol.
Top09 - KellyClarkson
Then I was just sadsies when I realized she’s not on until tomorrow, which I suppose is acceptable but really, way to toy with our emotions, producers.
So right in the first 5 minutes, which I missed, they announced the Top 4 and then decided they would be gracious enough to let us decide the other 6, finally! Securing a spot in the Top 4, in probably one of the most obvious of selections, we had:
Dalton, Olivia (convenient she doesn’t have to sing tonight because I heard she was in the hospital yesterday with flulike symptoms… Just a suggestion – maybe check for mono), the guy with mono Trent and La’Porsha. I mean, I call it obvious, but it’s a very solid top 4. Probably the exact top 4 that I would pick. Though I figured there was a chance for the night of performances to sway me. But that was also before I realized everyone was doing repeats.
So, instead of talking about everyone in order, I thought I’d talk about them in the order in which I voted for them!
The first person to get my vote for the night was none other than the ethereal lady herself, Jenn Blosil, singing True Colors.
top14 - number1pick
So, Jenn was the contestant where I realized that the contestants might just be doing songs they’d done before, because I definitely remember Jenn’s last performance of True Colors and thinking it was the PERFECT song for her. Cyndi Lauper has got to be her spirit animal. Tonight really wasn’t any different for me. And I gave her top pick because she was really the only performance that I even remembered (there would eventually be one more). I thought she held her own and while I don’t think it was the best vocal of the night, I do think that for me, it was worthy of my top pick. I’m definitely still team Jenn. I wonder if her fans have a name yet because I have thought of one – the JennBlossoms.  Is that too 90’s because if I was going to become a member of a superfan club, that’s a good name for one. ijs. Tell me I’m wrong, folks.
And now, for the next 3 I voted for, of the remaining 9…
top14 - top04
Yup. All girls. I love the ladies this season, what can I say? I don’t even really love all of these girls, but I love various things about them/their performances. Remember 30 seconds ago when I said Jenn was one of 2 performances I remembered? Any guess who the other one was? If you guessed Jeneve Rose Mitchell, you’d be right! And you must have because anyone that doesn’t remember Jeneve’s performance of Ring of Fire was either not watching that episode, or are deaf. I mean, what I loved about it was that it was one of the only performances that really was different from the song. To me, song choice is one of the biggest parts of becoming a successful American Idol and Jeneve really recognizes that. Maybe it’s just that I like the songs she picks (because I do tend to poo poo on songs I don’t know) but I think it’s also the originality she brings to the songs she picks, that makes her a standout to me. She, as I said with Jenn, isn’t the best singer, probably not even the best performer, but she has something that I think makes her necessary to be on the show. Now, the other two ladies, Sonika Vaid and Avalon Young, those girls can sing! They are, by far, the best singers in the competition. I mean Sonika is straight up flawless when it comes to her voice. Her only faults are that she’s probably gonna be another Pia Toscano/Jessica Sanchez – but with a little less stage presence. I think ratings wise, she’ll go the way of Pia, but she has the instrument of Jessica and I really hope that she uses this competition to grow her ability to be on stage because when she perfects that, she’s really going to go places! She even has the name of a star! As for Avalon… well… let’s just say that I am nothing if not “all over the place”. I love Avalon as a person, she has a great voice and she looks like a young tomboy Demi Moore… ok ok, maybe a young Kyle Richards.
demikyle
Either way, these are all great things about Avalon, but I just am not buying what she’s selling. I think it’s song choice. I’m not the biggest R&B fan and that seems to be the genre that is her sweet spot. It doesn’t matter though, I am willing to forgo my dislike of her song choices, because I’m already smitten and I like her too much not to vote for her. She definitely deserves to be on the show, 100%. She may not be for me, but I think there are a lot of people that would really want what she’s selling.
Now, in case you were wondering, I really did only want to pick 4, because they’re the only ones at this point I care about getting in (not including contestants that are already in the top 4). But, since I knew we had to pick 6 contestants, that’s what I did. And my final two picks were for MacKensie Bourg and  Tristan MacIntosh, and I hate myself a little bit for voting for them, but here’s why I did (and why I didn’t want to). I mostly didn’t want to because I don’t think Tristan is really ready yet, and she picks songs that I think make her sound worse than she actually is. She’s kind of the exact opposite of Avalon for me. I think she picks great songs (meaning songs I like, not songs she should be singing), but there’s just something about her that I don’t like. Maybe it was the little meltdown she had when she didn’t get the song she wanted, maybe it’s the producers shoving her story line down my throat? I don’t know. But I picked her (and MacKensie) because I just think they’re destine to make it to the next round, whether I vote for them or not – and truth be told, that’s the only reason I didn’t want to vote for MacKensie, because I feel like he’s not going to have any problem getting the votes he needs to fly through to the next round. I mean, original song, clearly better/more creative than his show competitor, Thomas. And I just COULD NOT vote for Thomas. Will he make it in, probably, but not by my hand. Now, MacKensie I can at least acknowledge without a lot of resentment, that he’s a shoo-in for the Top 3 unless he really screws something up. Not to mention he’s consistently either the first or last contestant and let me tell ya, there is a REASON that producers do that. Trust.
Now, as for the folks I didn’t vote for – Manny Torres, Gianna Isabella, Thomas Stringfellow and Lee JeanValJean, well, the reasons are pretty simple. One is fine but forgettable – and still hasn’t done a song I enjoy listening to – again, R&B, two are clearly still to young, and one has an annoying fucking hiccup at the end of his songs that drives me up the WALLLLLLLLLLLLLL!  I was so glad when Harry actually said something to Thomas because up until then I was under the assumption (and I have to assume Thomas was too) that the judges actually liked that weird thing. I mean, I think this was the first time that criticism was brought to his attention, at least by the judges. I’m pretty sure twitter has made him well aware – that is if he can sort through all the “swoon” tweets that I’m sure he’s also getting. I’m lying. I looked on twitter and I couldn’t find anyone complaining about his voice. I only saw people complaining about Harry. Ugh.
maxresdefault
At least from my own personal discussions with people about this show, it’s pretty obvious that I’m not the only one who feels this way about his voice. I’m just the only one tweeting about it.
So with that we move on to night 2 where we will see the Top 10(?) perform and then vote for the Top 8? Are we voting again tonight? I have no idea. Is there a theme tonight? Don’t know that either. Though I think the answer is no. But the good news is…

American Idol – Duets

Duets just makes me think of Gwenyth Paltrow (and Huey Lewis but that doesn’t fit with where I’m going here). And that just makes me think they should’ve done some kind of Sliding Door situation, instead of Duets. I don’t know how that would work but I think it would be great. For me the duets were a bit on the lackluster side over all. I liked the concept and as soon as Lauren and Emily started singing it made me think about how this is a pretty interesting challenge. You’re singing with people who were the best of their season. You’re at this point only in the Top 24 of your season. It’ll be interesting to see how people compare to the top contestants. Maybe the Top 24 are as good as these guys. I mean they’re saying that there’s more talent in this season than ever before!

Sure they say that every season but this season it actually has some credibility just because everyone who was sitting on the fence as to whether they’d audition, got off their asses and did it. Or so they’d like us to believe 🙂

Emily Brooke and Lauren Alaina
Flat on the Ground by Carrie Underwood

Emily loves a sheer overlay. Lauren definitely stood out far more than Emily, which I have a feeling could happen a lot with these first 24 duets. I mean, Ryan said it – these are seasoned performers at this point, even if none of them are really all that famous yet. As for Emily, I just think it was a good pick for her if she wanted to hide her voice, and glob on to Lauren’s voice. All this performance made me do was miss Lauren as a contestant. She was great for the show.

Thomas Stringfellow and Nick Fradiani
Man in the Mirror by Michael Jackson

Weird combo. I mean, I’m sure Thomas was hoping for Alex Preston. That’d be too matchy matchy. I do feel like Thomas was looking at Nick like, oh my god that guy is so hot. No? Was that just me?

As for this performance, I just wish Nick was singing the whole time so I didn’t have to hear that hiccup. It was back in full effect tonight. I didn’t really love either of them singing this though. It seemed a little choppy and rushed.

Also Harry, stop praising that Creep performance.

Top07 - Notcool

Stephaney Negrete and Ruben Studdard
Superstar by The Carpenters

Rueben hit the nail on the head with what Stephaney was lacking from yesterday. She’s lacking that ability to let go and be free on stage. She’s got the voice and energy, she just needs to relax and petit all out. Is he teaching now? I didn’t realize they were billing her as a Pia Toscano type.

Also, Luther Vandross is JLo’s favorite singer of all time? Wouldn’t have guessed that.

Sonica Vaid and Caleb Johnson 
Skyfall by Adele

I was only going to be happy if they sang a song for Beauty and the Beast. I mean they said they were doing something theatrical. I love seeing how naive Sonika is but truthfully it’s only going to hurt her this season. I just think I would’ve liked it more if Caleb wasn’t singing (and for the record this was the only performance where I thought that). I do think that he helped her get out of her comfort zone… a little.

little

Jenna Renae and Scotty McCreery
See You Tonight by Scotty McCreery

Jenna just seemed like a fan that happened to be able to sing, that Scotty pulled up on stage. Also there are very few women that I think look better in a fedora, but I really like that look for Jenna. Her not wearing one made me really take notice and wish she was. That feels like a backhanded compliment but it isn’t meant to be.

La’Porsha Renae and Fantasia
Summertime by George Gershwin for Porgy and Bess

what just happened clapping

This required a double gif for me to explain my emotions about this performance. It was great. Is it possible La’Porsha is even better with a duet partner? I mean they were really flawless, I have to say. It was the highlight of the show, and I don’t usually feel that way about Fantasia, but as a duet, I liked it!

Also, their height difference in the practice round was amazing. I’m kind of dying to know what their actual heights are. I didn’t think Fantasia was that tall. Also, I LOVED Fantasia’s shoes! I tweeted her to see what they were but alas, no response.

Mackenzie Bourg and Lauren Alaina 
I Hope You Dance by Leanne Womack 

“I was hoping I’d be taller than you” – so cute. Adorable. He really is. And you know Lauren is a huge flirt. God love her. Excellent song choice for them and I think showing that he can compete with Thomas for the ladies, was a really good move for Mackenzie. Mackenzie > Thomas. For serious.

Gianna Isabella and Nick Fradiani
A Beautiful Life by Nick Fradiani

This reminded me of the end of a tv show graduation. And Gianna looked like she was the freshman standing next to senior Nick. She looked SO young. I think the keds were a bad idea. Heels would’ve helped age her up a little bit. She’s so goofy and cute but it does read so young.

I will say that JLo has a tell. And I could tell she’s already mentally voted Gianna off the show. “I’ve gotten rejections from so many other auditions” – hey Gianna, maybe don’t say that.

Avalon Young and Ruben Studdard
Flying Without Wings by Ruben Studdard

snooze andy cohen

I stand by my belief that Rubens victory song was one of the worst in the series. That said, they did a really good job. It was a little boring, I mean we’re at the 1.5 hour mark at this point, I needed something a little more upbeat – thought seeing the pairing I was pretty sure it’d be a smoother song. They were still really good. I didn’t really expect Avalon to go that way musically but it was a nice divergence.

James VIII and Caleb Johnson 
Give Me Shelter by The Rolling Stones

James was a really good guitar player next to Caleb singing the Stones. Maybe he should just leave the show and tour with Caleb? I think that’s a good idea. Do that Mr. VIIIth.

Jeneve Rose Mitchell and Scotty McCreery
Gone by Montgomery Gentry 

That was very country.

Jordan Sasser and Fantasia 
I Believe by Fantasia Barrino 

Um… you know, we all know my feelings on Jordan.

mckayla-maroney-not-impressed

And then FINALLY we got to who would stay and who would go! And I was actually really happy with who stayed. Sure, I wish Emily could’ve been a little better, but I think she earned her position. And I think that if there were an 8th person picked, it would’ve been her. I also really thought they’d keep Stephaney over Gianna. That was a bit of a shocker to me. And while originally I liked Gianna more, I think Stephaney would’ve been the better add.

SAFE: La’Porsha, Sonika, Avalon, Gianna, Jeneve, Thomas and Mackenzie.

OUT: James, Jordan, Emily, Stephaney and Jenna.

And just as a friendly reminder of who’s left to perform next week, we have: Jenn Blosil, Amelia Eisenhauer, Olivia Rox, Shelbie Z, Tristan McIntosh, Adam Lasher, Kory Wheeler, Lee Jean, Manny Torres, Trent Harmon and CJ Johnson (I bolded the 7 I hope stay in)

And the returning Idols will be: David Cook, Chris Daughtry, Constantine Maroulis, Kellie Pickler, Haley Reinhart and Jordin Sparks.

American Idol – The First 12

Ok so first off lets address the elephant in the room… or should I say, the elephant that’s not in the room – the producers of American Idol.

Dearest Simon – What made you think that it was a good idea to not let America vote when it came to the Top 24? Did the judges really need another shot at narrowing the playing field before you let America get their hands on it? Sure, I get irritated with America sometimes when it picks the wrong person (don’t worry, I’m not getting political), but to not give us a right to vote until it’s time to get down to the Top 10?

rude

All I have to say is that the judges better do a better job than America in picking the Top 14, or I’m gonna be super pissed.

I mean voting is what draws us in! It’s what makes us care about the show! …which I guess is political because it’s the reason I think you should vote IRL. To care about America. Trust me. Start voting and paying attention and I guarantee you’ll understand the importance. But if you’re scared to vote… just start with Idol. You’l be voting for president in no time, I promise!

Ok so lets talk about the real reason we’re here. The judges! Oh sorry, I was still in “producer” mindset. I meant, The Contestants! I was wondering which 12 they’d pit up against each other and I was happy with this selection. Though I do think next week will be harder. I decided, so as not to be too mean, to try and say one thing I liked about the performance, and one thing I’d change (or straight up disliked).

Stephany Negrete – Mama Knows Best 

+ I LOVE her energy. I was thinking how the producers must be really obsessed with her to have her start out a show two weeks in a row – but when you watch her, you realize it has more to do with just getting people into the show! And I get that.

– What I wish she’d work on is her… a certain I don’t know what. She was just so close to a really good performance but it just lacked something for me. Mojo wasn’t it but I think it did have to do with connection.

And congrats on knowing all those languages.

Mackenzie Bourg – Say Something
+ He’s one of my favorite guys this season – which is saying A LOT because that’s a very short list this year. And what I thought would be a plus for him, ended up being what I didn’t like 😦
– Perfect song choice for him (I thought). I think not doing something “original” was probably a good idea. Do a crowd pleaser. Thing is though, this is def not as good as the original. And I’ve listened to the original a lot. It even came up in my FB “on this day” today. I saw a lot of people that really loved it, but I just wasn’t on that list today. I still hope he’s in for the guys tonight though.
Screen Shot 2016-02-11 at 7.35.09 PM
Jeneve Rose – The Sad Animal Song aka Angel 
+ She basically plays every instrument. And harp is HARD! And how often are you seeing people singing while playing the harp? But I thought  the harp was a nice touch. I loved that Jen admitted she was the one not sure about her – SHOCKER. Glad Jeneve won her over.
– that 90s meets 1800s look. Not sure about that one. It was giving me Seinfeld puffy shirt flashbacks too (not necessarily a bad thing).
Jena Renae – My Church
+ Memorizes song lyrics easily? Me too! That’s probably going to a plus for her if she stays in this game, which I really hope she does. I think she had just as much energy as Stephaney and a better song (which I really liked – had to google and find out what it was).
– Her position in the competition! Sad face. I hope the judges remember her. I think if nothing else Keith will. Fingers crossed for my little dark horse!
James VIII – Love Lockdown
+ He’s got a nice smile and he seems really good at playing guitar…
– … in a bar. He seems like the guy I would see at This guy seems like the type that won’t make it through this week. But, Caleb made it through 2 years ago so anything is possible.
Sonika Vaid – Safe and Sound 
+ Plays by ear on piano? Talent. And with pitch like that, is it even surprising how well she takes to piano? She has, hands down, the best voice in this competition.
– She needs the energy of Stephaney or she’s going to be forgotten. You’re halfway there picking a t-swizzle song, but you’ll be all the way there if you can do an upbeat song. Just remember no one likes a ballad every single week.
ballads
Gianna Isabella – I Put a Spell on You
+ I do like her more than Tristan, but i think Tristan, unfortunately, is the better singer. This also made me notice that they separated a lot of the “similar” contestants. I think that’s very interesting as to how we’ll be shaping up the Top 14. I realize none of this is about Gianna but honestly, it’s because I already kind of forgot her performance. It’s not a good sign. The only thing I do remember…
– that last note wasn’t great.
Emily Brooke – I Am Invincible 
+ She’s really good at getting autographs.
– “That wasn’t the sweetest and most beautiful part of your voice” – jlo. I think that sums it up. Poor girl. Competition is hard.
Avalon Young – Love Yourself 
+ She’s proving she isn’t who I thought she was, and from this point forward, I will not call you “She’s All That” girl. I liked hearing “this is the only way i’m going out on this stage”. It means a lot to stay true to yourself. And your voice was wonderful. You made me not hate a Justin Beiber song.
– You picked a Justin Beiber song.
Jordan Sasser – All By Myself. 
+ I liked your haircut.
– I wish you were all by yourself, at your house, and not on American Idol. I think Harry could’ve stopped with “I didn’t like that”. I know, it’s rude, and this guy hasn’t done anything to me, but he’s also not going to do anything to me, to make me like him. Sorry friend.
Thomas Stringfellow – Creep
+ Far less hiccup noise making.
– Way too many swaybots. Le sigh…. what would Idol be without them?
LaPorsha Renae – Proud Mary
+ She loves a movie soundtrack – I agree. Much of my iPod is movie/musical related!
+ Her JJ key earring, which I’ve mentioned.
+ That she was the only one where I actually stopped writing and watched/jammed along with. #teamlaporsha
– It was a little karaoke. I saw proof of your originality in your first performance so I know it’s in there, but this was very straight forward. But I still loved it. Excellent work for your first almostlive show.
And now, since I’m already running late, let’s see who they keep!
For the record, the 5 I think (it’s a fine line) they say goodbye to are: Thomas (probably not gonna happen. I know, I live in a world of pipe dreams. It’s definitely not to Thomas), Jordan, Emily, James, and then I guess either Gianna or Jenna, in which case I’d hope Gianna. Jenna doesn’t have a quasi-famous mom to help her out.

American Idol – Room With a New American Idol

I don’t know about you but as soon as I saw who was in each room. I mean, I definitely recognize one of these girls as the one who auditioned with the guy… screams

But when you really looked at the breakdown of talent in the 3 rooms, it was pretty easy to see that Room 2 was probably on the way out… Take a look for yourself. I even highlighted the ones I thought were talented 🙂

room 1

roop 2

room 3

If you ask me, the next American Idol was in Room 3. I mean, there was a solid pool of talent there! Look at all those red arrows! I mean, if I have to accept Michelle Marie in order to have  the rest of contestants in room 3 be safe, it’s a price I’m willing to pay.

So with that lets talk about favorites of the night (in order of appearance)! Spoiler alert, they’re all ladies 🙂

Olivia Rox – Original Song “Crazy Love”

For your choice to debut a new song

SeriousClapping

(same for you Mackenzie Bourg – and truth be told, I thought your song was better). Good call to do it on this night. Break out the originality a little further into the competition, when you’re looking for one more wow. Not only that though. Her voice is still solid and this being the 3rd time performing on tv, I think she’s proving that she is consistent, which is really important.

Sonkia Vaid – One Last Time by Ariana Grande
Jessica Cabral – Up to the Mountain by Patty Griffin 

I put these two girls together because they just have the most beautiful voices of this competition. I will say that during Sonkia’s performance, the background singer was a little distracting but I think overall, her voice showed through and I think she’ll be fine. I think they probably both need a little help with the actual performance part of their jobs, but they’ve got the voice thing down. Though lack of ability to perform does eventually make me hate contestants (not as much as poor song choice) so they probably should get to working on that before the live shows.

Jenn Blosil – True Colors by Cyndi Lauper

Oh my sweet flower, Jenn. What a perfect song choice. I hope she’s not having a breakdown because I really like her. And she has no need to be that sad because her performance, of what I heard, was fantastic! Honestly I thought I’d just be happy she made it through group night, because unique flowers like Jenn don’t always… but at this point I really want her to go further. I need to see her sing live! Come on Idol fans! Let’s make sure Jenn gets to the live shows and stays there!

loveyou

And now for a few comments about the remaining contestants we saw:

Stephaney Negrente – Set Fire to the Rain I think this girl has a really good voice, but when she sings, she sounds like she had a problem with saying the letter R. It was like “I set fiyah to the wain”. Was that just me hearing that?

Thomas Stringfellow – A Thousand  Years Ah yes, Newsies guy… This was my least favorite male performance of the night, but his hipster vibes gave me a strong feeling he’d be safe. He just reminds me of a younger Alex Preston. And where the hell is he, nowadays?

Avalon Young – One Last Time I don’t feel like I really got to hear her performance but for a little snippet, but I’d like to believe it was solid. The last note was a little rough though. Hoping it was a fluke and you’ll be back to belting shortly.
One Last Time by Ariana Grande – She thought she could have done better, although the little snip seemed fine!

John Wayne Schulz (sans hat) – John 3:16 John, sweet John. I know you didn’t make it through. And I hate that (I think) an idol producer stole his hat, so that he wouldn’t wear it. But seriously though – It’s crazy how much younger and hotter he looks without the hat. It’s a totally different look. Do I think he should try singing without it more often?

hint yes

Tristan McIntosh – What Hurts the Most Crying because of her emotional connection… really? This early in the season? Seemed a little contrived to me. Sure you didn’t just figure out a story? Maybe she should’ve sung “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”? How’s that for a life lesson? Man how long can I go without finishing a sentence with a question mark? haha.

Mackenzie Bourg – Original Song “Roses” Briefly mentioned him above but he should know, he was the only guy I really liked tonight. I mean I liked John Wayne, sexually, but I liked Mackenzie, musically. Sure Lee and Thomas were fine, but Mackenzie was where it’s at.

Shelbie Z – Alone Listen, truth be told, I just can’t decide if I like her. It’s mostly that I know she’s already tried out for The Voice. I just think that if you made it a certain distance in one show and didn’t make it, what makes you think you’re going to make it on this one? I know that’s mean, and she has a voice like a mack truck so I do think she deserves to be where she is at this point, I just don’t know how much further I want to see her go. We’ll see. She could always win me over!

 

 

Kory Wheeler – Fix You Love this song, do not like Kory Wheeler. Darren Criss still has the best version of this song.

Well that just lead to a “Glee Music” shame spiral. Who am I kidding? There’s no shame in my Glee game. haha.

James VIII – Wicked Game Oh that guy is still here!

Lee Jean – Stitches Ok well… Lee is cute. He’s pretty good, but I still feel like he’s really young. I mean he’s 3 years younger than Sarah. I think he’s full of potential, I just wish he was a year or two older.

Sara Sturm – Somewhere Only We Know Sara is fine. She does have a good voice, but compared to the competition, I don’t see her in a Top 5 situation. I could see her Top 24 though. I if I hadn’t seen her pre-performance, I would’ve guessed she was one of the people with mono laryngitis

Emily Brooke – What Hurts the Most Great voice. She gets better every time I hear her. I didn’t even notice the key problems. Also I loved her dress.

Malie Delgado – Stitches / Mionne Dynasty – Chains (Laryngitis girls)
Have we seen either of these girls, to date? They were both fine through their respective illnesses that aren’t mono. Something tells me this will be the last time we’ll see these two…

Joshua Wicker – 1000 years  I didn’t really remember this guy was still on the show, and his performance wasn’t anything that special, but I was sad seeing him say goodbye as a Room 2-er. He seems like a real good guy.

CJ Johnson – Go Your Own Way Honestly, CJ should’ve been in my Top. I think he would’ve probably been my 5th. I just liked the enthusiasm he brought to the performance. I would’ve liked to see more of it.

Jeneve Mitchell – Danny’s Song Oh Jeneve… I really really wanted you to be in my Top 5 again… but this was truly not your best performance. I really hope that this was just a minor set back and you’re good enough and that’s why the judges kept you – because they know this. I’m still rooting for you, Jeneve!

Dalton Rapattoni – Hopelessly Devoted to You I know he was saying group night was tough on him but dude, I’ll tell you what I told Tristan… man up. Life is hard. The music industry is hard. Get used to it. I did really like the song choice because we all know I love a song from a show, especially a show I just watched live! To be honest, I liked Sandra Dee a lot more.

There were definitely some people I missed seeing *cough cough* La’Porsha *cough cough* but it’s nice to see they’re still through so we’ll hopefully see them one more time tonight (or next week, whatever).
