Who's more confused???

Jason singing the lyrics to song 2 to the tune of song 1 (thank goodness in practice only) OR Paula Abdul who truly appeared to be on another planet last night!

Before I begin my brief analysis last night, I am going to be upfront with you that I did not see the show in it's entirety. Just enough in bits and pieces to tell you that I thought the entire show and all the singers were just average or below average. That's right... everyone! At this stage of the game with only 5 singers left, a show developed around one singer (although I do love me a little Neil Diamond every now and then) is getting silly. I find it to be a bit biased towards the strong ballad singers. At the very least they should have maybe each done ONE Neil song and then a song of their choice for number two. It's time for us to see what kind of recording artists they are truly going to be and start choosing songs from there own genre and style.

Jason, Jason.... You're making it hard for me to defend you week after week - I know Neil Diamond isn't for you. You didn't stink, you didn't soar... boring.

David Cook - I believe you may win this and I will be totally ok with that. Great voice, please choose songs we know - it's boring when you don't!

Brooke - First song was very rocky. Second song better

David Archuleta - Ms C loved your choice in song with Sweet Caroline. She is convinced you were singing it to her. Again, you have a great voice, but Neil Diamond is not for you.

and last but not least... Syesha - boring.

Did I mention I found last night's show boring???;)

I vote we mix it up next week with a Jack Johnson night, or John Mayer night... or any singer that will suit my Jason! I have selected Flake for you (see below) it's one of my favorites and suits you too - don't worry, I've been called one once or twice too ;) Tonight will be a nail biter!!!!!!! xo, Brie

LOL I think alot of us had the same feelings about last night's show. My blog post was much the same. ;-)

I had high hopes for the show and the whole thing was a hot mess.

The best part of the night was Paula. I love that no one tried to stop her right away. They just kept letting her dig that big hole of humiliation.

I'm going to say this and my house will probably be egged tonight, but I am over Archuleta. Neil Diamond is one of my all time favorite singers and I feel that Archuleta butchered Sweet Caroline. We're Coming to America was very Branson like. He just didn't get it at all. I agree with letting the contestants pick their own songs. I'm tired of the mentors. These kids are struggling to connect with these mentors and well, who could blame them? Last night was just a yawn for me. I dont' know who is going home tonight and I'm starting to not care. I can see the hand writing on the wall and David Cook is going to win.

Yep, big yawner saved only by Paula's drunkenness.

OMG it was boring with a capital B! So easy listening and queer. Neil Diamond is amazing but not for the young kids! Good LORD! I hate jason. Don;t be mad at me!
