Title: American Idol January 13, 2009...lets discuss!
Post by: Dizzydeni on January 13, 2009, 10:14:12 AM
Here we go again...another season of AI.  Every season we have lengthy discussions about the singers and who we like/dislike.  This is not my favorite part of the show, but after its over, lets discuss who was good, and whom might be the next AI.

Talk to you all later.

Thanks for reminding us about the show starting tonight Dizzy.
My reminder got thrown in the trash, lol, by me. :oops:

I actually enjoy these first shows. I find them rather commical.
I have to watch from a recording though since I dance  **dance** on Tuesday nights.

A local radio station was taking predictions on how far into the show it would be when Simon first rubs his man boobs...lol. They had a list of things that happen every show like Paula's palm clap where her fingers don't touch, Randy's "Dawg" comments, Paula's dancing and Simon's rubbing his chest. Now all I will be able to think about during the show is "is he touching himself yet?"  :o

So the show is over, with its new judge.  I cannot figure out why she is there, but thats another story.  Out of 27 winners for the night, we got to see:

Stevie - the 16 year old girl who sang At Last
Jeremy - The Roughneck
Katrina - The Bathing suit girl
Brianna - Killing me Softly
Cody - Blue eyes who loves horror movies
Scott - Legally blind who entered college at 14
DeAnna- alone with no family who sang Dock of the Bay
Alex - asked Randy to sing the chorus of James Ingram, Come To Me
Emily - Tattooed and pierced
JB - male with thick eyebrows
Arianna - Sang Put Your Records On - Loved her.

So is the next idol within this group?  We shall see.

I thought the whole bathing suit girl thing was really odd. The men didn't seem to care if she could sing well or not just because she was skantily clad? And the women were way to critical....again because she was skantily clad. Where is their professionalism? And what a skank auditioning in that bikini in the first place....have some self respect!

I think the overdid the hype for Scott, the blind man. He was allright but I don't think he warrented all the Oooo'ing and Awww'ing he received. Hopefully the judges will look past his disability and rate him by his voice alone in the future.

I liked DeAnna and Stevie, they both have very unique and interesting voices/styles.

Emily has a really good voice but I can't stand the tatoos and funky hair. I sure hope she covers them up better than Carly did last year. It just turned me off and I think it was more of a liability than anything else for Carly in the end.

I've only watched the first hour so far and I think my favorite for that hour was the girl with dark hair that Paula said was another Kelly Clarkson, at least I think that's what she said.
I watched it late last night and I was kind of tired.
I liked the girls voice with all the tatoos but I too hope she covers them up.
Was that the Emily you're talking about? I don't remember her having funky hair.
Someone with tatoos had pretty blonde hair and was very pretty herself, well from the head up.

The girl with the tattooes had strawberry banana color hair, like the jello coloring....It was awful.

It didn't look bad on my TV set, lol. At least I don't remember thinking it looked bad.
Well I watched the second hour and all of tonight's show.
The highlight of tonight's show was the ad about David Cook, lol.
I just love that guy.
Did anyone buy his CD?
I did an love it.

I think my favorite so far may be the guy who lost his wife.
There were a lot of nice voices but sometimes it's hard to tell if they're really going to be good until you start hearing them sing with instruments.

I cannot give a detailed account for last nights show, as I watched three hours of LOST and have not got to the bedroom dvr to see the first hour and a half of Idol.  I did have to come to work today.

My daughter and I were all excited that one of the best ones last night is from the Twin Cities. Go Casey Carlson!!! She was early on...the one in the cute dress and dark hair that Kara said had the whole package.

One question: Why do so many bad singers just start singing again when one of the judges say they where horrible? To prove the judge right? LOL....it just makes Randy laugh at them and Simon scowl so why do they think it will help?

I really did miss AI.  This year my 9 y/o daughter is glued to the TV right beside me.  I DVR so I can fast forward the boring parts and of course the commercials.

The bikini girl from the first night--totally a way to draw attention to the show (shock value if you will).  I thought the ladies were very critical of her.  She didn't have a "bad" voice.  And the guys' definitley put her thru because of her body.  The girl needs some respect for herself.  I did think it was cute how she kissed Ryan and then jumped in the pool, and he followed.  Kind of cute, but hope we don't have to see it over, and over and over.

I really enjoyed the David Cook segment. I LOVE David Cook.  And, yes, I downloaded his CD to my iPod.  I really like him.

I liked the girl from the first night who sang the Heart song.  I liked the guy last night who's wife passed away.  Lots of good ones.  I had to laugh that the guy who begged his way in last night at the end (#26 of 25) Dennis or Darryl, or something....he is from Glen Carbon, IL.  LOL.  I live like 10 miles away in Collinsville, IL.  Way to represent....SARCASTICALLY!!!

::)I've watched both shows but like some of you I find it ridiculous and would rather wait until they all get to Hollywood.  None really impressed me, but my heart went out to two of the men.  The poor kid who was blind and the one who lost his wife.  Can't even remember their names.  Cody stood out since his last name is the same as one of my friends.

I haven't had a chance to watch both shows yet--I have them recorded and can't wait to sit down and watch them.  I did see a girl from my hometown in KS there which was very cool.

And yes, I LOVE David Cook!  And his CD.

How was dredlocks brother (Jason Castro)?????

I actually thought that Jason's brother was better than he is. Which was a shocker as he said that he hadn't ever really sang until a couple weeks prior to the tryouts. Hate is hair though, it is even worse than Jason's....shorter, but worse.

Casey gets my vote!  I missed her but found her clip on youtube.

I finally saw Jason Castro's brother and he is much better than Jason.
