Thursday Thirteen

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!

I have to admit that I only watch the first few shows every season to see the morons and idiots who can't sing try to do so just to get on TV, so I don't know about the folks who actually got chosen.

It is a popular topic on blogs though.

I'm going to make a confession.

I have never, never, never, ever watched American Idol.

Not once.

I have listened to a Kelly Clarkson CD though, so I'm sure I won't be pushed off of a coast and left to fend for myself at sea.

But I do feel more secure living in the midwest and making this outrageous claim.
