The General protested the idea of live blogging American Idol, but since I now have the laptop, it looks like it’s live blogging time… at least if you’re on the West Coast. It’s Michael Jackson night, and having not read any spoilers at all, I’m kind of excited about the options for tonight’s performances.
Here we go, in short form tonight.
Lil Rounds – “The Way You Make Me Feel”:
Wendy: Too much screaming, so not down with the makeup.
General: Her outfit’s horrific. It’s Fantasia in a smaller body.
Scott MacIntyre – “Keep the Faith”:
Wendy: I’m glad he’s back behind the piano, but I didn’t love it.
General: It was okay.
Danny Gokey – “P.Y.T.”:
Wendy: I have this dude picked as the winner in our work pool for a reason, yo.
Michael Sarver – “You Are Not Alone”:
Wendy: I get bored with him every time,
General: Boring. Cruise ship. That big cheesy grin of his always makes me think of someone at Valley Fair.
Jasmine “Alien Head Tranny” Murray – “I’ll Be There”:
Wendy: I think the stylists took her shopping at Frederick’s of Hollywood. Her performance was equally as trashy and something I want to avoid. And it’s too bad because this is one of my favorite songs of all-time.
General: There’s a reason she didn’t make it in during the first rounds. She’s pitchy as hell. And she has an alien forehead. She needs to go home and go back to high school.
Kris Allen – “Remember the Time”:
Wendy: I think he’s adorable. I loved about 85% of this performance.
General: It was great until the last 10 seconds.
Allison Iraheta – “Give Into Me”:
Wendy: I like her a lot.
General: I think she did really well actually.
Anoop DOGG Desai – “Beat It””
Wendy: Anoop is a lot. I would just like to give him a haircut.
General: He’s a great performer.
Jorge Nunez – “Never Can Say Goodbye”:
Wendy: I can’t watch him. And I’d rather not listen to him anymore.
General: He makes stupid, cheesy faces the whole time. It’s the same douchey faces that Sanjaya made.
Megan Joy Corkery – “Rockin’ Robin”:
Wendy: I can’t watch her either. I really love her voice.
General: I love her voice. She’s quirky as hell.
Adam Lambert – “Black or White”:
Wendy: He reminds me too much of Constantine. And too much of a dude that needs everyone to pay attention to him all day every day.
General: I’m not a fan. How many fucking times did he sing that in front of a mirror to get those facial expressions right?
Matt Giraud – “Human Nature”:
Wendy: I like him when he’s behind the piano, too. The recording industry needs a dude version of Alicia Keys.
General: I love him actually. He has a really unique voice and he’s a super talented pianist.
Alexis Grace – “Dirty Diana”:
Wendy: I don’t remember her from the auditions, but have loved her ever since.
General: I thought she was great. It was a perfect song choice for her. She looked fantastic.
Wendy: Jorge, Alien Head Tranny, and Michael Sarver. I hope Alien Head goes home and I think Jorge will go with her.
General: Jorge, Alien Head Tranny, and Anoop; Jorge and Anoop will be the 2 that go home.
