The American Idol contestants have been whittled down to the Top 7!
Opening last night’s show, was a performance by the 6 contestants that have already been booed off the stage (of the original Top 13). In case you’ve already forgotten who their names, they are: Ashthon Jones, Karen Rodriguez, Naima Adedapo, Paul McDonald, Pia Toscano, & Thia Megia.
Their performance was nothing less than dreadful, serving as a true reminder of why we sent them home in the first place. Goodbye, and good riddance! Especially Naima. Lord knows, nobody ever wants to see her ugly mug again.
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get on with the show.
American Idol Top 7 — Season 10 Recap: Songs of the 21st Century
Last night, the contestants performed songs from the 21st century. For you dum-dums out there, that’s any song recorded in the year 2000 or later.
Before each performance, the producers of the show had the other contestants talk s#!t about the contestant that was about to perform. Naturally, I enjoyed these little snippets considerably.
|Performed LeAnn Rimes’ “Swingin’”|
|As usual, Scotty’s performance was quite unbearable. His voice is tolerable, but he is not. He positively reeks of douchebaggery. Not only that, but he has grown more dull with each passing week. Who knew that could even be possible?|
|Performed Muse’s “Uprising”|
|Unlike Scotty, James gets better and better with each passing week. He started off good, and has grown into a completely amazing entertainer. He always puts on a great show.Also, were those Scottish golf pants he was wearing? Nice touch.|
|Performed Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep”|
|Her performance last night was pretty average. She seemed off-tempo in the beginning, and a little pitchy at certain points throughout the song. On top of that, she didn’t really seem to have the right emotion for this song.She’s definitely in tonight’s bottom 3, and has a high possibility of going home, which is too bad, ’cause Hot Shiitake’s American Idol fanatic was really starting to like her…|
|Performed Luther Vandross’ “Dance With My Father”|
|Apparently, Jacob’s father died when he was young. Those AI producers really know how to make everyone start crying before the performer even hits the stage.Even if he hadn’t sang well, America would’ve loved it. For god’s sake, the man has no father.|
|Performed Maroon 5′s “Harder to Breathe”|
|Is Casey losing weight? He looks good! His performance last night was great, as usual. He really is a terrific musician. The scads of “singers” these days who don’t have a single musical bone in their body are just sickening.|
|Performed Ne-Yo’s “Closer”|
|Liked it. Didn’t love it. This wasn’t Stefano’s best performance ever, but he’s still pretty coolz. He did something completely different from his previous performances, and it was upbeat and fun. Good job, Stef-o! Let’s hope he stays at least one more week.|
|Performed Sara Evans’ “Born To Fly”|
|Lauren is aight, but she doesn’t thrill. She’s a cute girl and has a great voice… but her performances are soo monotonous. Every week is just more of the same. Oh well, America likes her, so she probably doesn’t have to worry about leaving us quite yet. Too bad.|
