Thirteen Predicitions About American Idol
Yes, I admit it, I'm an American Idol-aholic, these are my early thoughts about this year!!
1. If Tuesday night shows any sign of what the guys future singing will be like, I believe they will be out of the running early.
2. That isn't to say that I didn't like ANY of the guys, just that so many girls were SO good last night
3. I believe Sanjaya might go home tonight, though I honestly think his performance Tuesday night may have been a work of sabotage by his sister (who picked his song, after SHE didn't make it past Hollywood, kinda funny huh?)
4. I think that Paul Kim should go home, I've never really cared for him from the beginning, and I really don't like feet, so the fact that he sings barefoot is just weird to me
5. My early favorite is Phil Stacey (the bald guy with big eyes) on the guys side, I also liked Blake Lewis (the ever famous beat-boxer who surprised us with a great voice on a ballad)
6. Stephanie Edwards is an early non-favorite for me, not due to the fact that she can't sing. I thought her vocal abilities were good, but I hate it when people drop to their knees on stage, and she did this on her VERY first performance.
7. As far as that didn't impress me with their vocal abilities, I would have to say Antonella Barba and Leslie Hunt were the absolute worst for me. Though there were a few others that just didn't have rememberable enough performances for me to remember.
8. Jordin Sparks is a young girl, but she CAN FLAT WAIL! Loved her last night.
9. I also liked Melinda Doolittle, the former back-up singer who proved last night that she totally deserves a place in the spotlight.
10. But MY ABSOLUTE favorite OVERALL is Lakisha Jones, the single mom who worked at a bank before this stint on American Idol. She is humility all over, and as Simon said, she sang last night on a totally different level.
11. After watching last night's show, I don't think this year will be a bit boring.
12. I have a feeling that maybe the guys will try to bring it next week (I hope so anyway)
13. I guess we'll know by tomorrow who will be going back to their day jobs!

Okay, So I've Been Told I'm Not Funny Anymore

My sister complained to me yesterday that I never post here anymore, and she's right. My time has been spread thin, and I've not had a chance to post on both of my blogs. So I chose to post to the devotional one rather than this one.
But since my sister whined about me not posting, I'll give you a little tidbit to laugh at today.
About a month back I purchased a Nintendo Wii. It's a lot of fun, and actually pretty good excercise. (If you don't believe me, try the boxing, if your arms don't hurt the next morning, let me know!)
Anyway, my niece wanted to try it. She just turned three. Let me tell you, if you ever want to see something funny, watch a three year old play a Wii. IT IS HILARIOUS.
She wanted to play the Cars movie game, because she LOVES the movie cars. Now it's kind of tough even for an adult to play, but I figured she would have just as much fun racing around everywhere anyway.
I wasn't disappointed. She slammed Lightning McQueen into every wall on that track. But the funniest thing was that she kept saying, "No, Lightning, you're not supposed to go over there." Then she'd jerk the remote the opposite way and slam him into a tree on the other side of the track, and so on and so on!
It was too funny!
