Thoughts on AI

My take on tonight's AI.

I love James because I am a rocker chick at heart, but I thought hiis two performances tonight were his weakest of the entire season. I still like him and still think he will win (although the judges need to quit saying that) but I think he dropped his guard tonight.

Jacob needs to go. Actually, he needed to go last week and the week before and the week before. This isn't the right venue for his voice. At least he wasn't dressed all crazy, though.

Lauren! Girlfriend finally put on some heels and rocked the stage! I swear I knew she'd be better if she ditched those flat boots. She was running out of air in a few places (maybe up the cardio?), but still very good.

I love Scotty! And I love that he kicked it into high gear with that first song. Also love that he's working hard to ditch the microphone "flute" thing. I'm not really a country fan per se, but I could listen to that voice all day long.

As for Haley...I don't know what Steven gave the other judges to smoke before the show, but they be HIGH! We are supposed to bag on her performance, which was spot on vocally, because she sang an unknown song? Dude, all hits are unknown at first! But maybe it was worth it in the end because I think she came out motivated to give them a big EFF U with her second song...and she SLAYED it. "House of the Rising Sun" is one of my all time favorite songs and her version is better than the original! The a capella section was amazing. Haley is in it to win it! If the stupid judges will get out of her way!


P.S. Sheryl Crow wins for best mentor ever!

Lol, I thought you said AL and I thought awww Kelly's got a new "friend" !!
Anyway i'm with you Haley is AWESOME !!!!!!!! I can't for the life of me figure out how Jacob even got out of the Semi finals????? He destroyed I Believe I can Fly. A wonderful and very inspirational song. I nearly fainted when they stood up and told him he was perfect.

I agree - I think James will win. I like Scotty, but doesn't he look a little like a young George Bush??
