American Idol:The British Pop Invasion

Last night on American Idol there was a "British Invasion". It was not one of my favorite genres that they have ever done on the show. To me it was a fairly boring night on the show. Here is a rundown of the show and my prediction for who is going home this week.

Haley Scarnato: "Tell Him"-She did not sound bad, and actually may have been one of her best performances to date. Her long legs can not hurt her in the voting process.

Chris Richardson: Great peformance. His voice resembles Justin Timberlake, and the girls appear to like him.

Stephanie Edwards: "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me"-Pitchy in spots, and she doesn't seem to connect with the audience. I have been saying for weeks that she might go home. I don't think this is the week, but if she doesn't step it up in the personality department it will be soon.

Blake Lewis: "Time Of The Season"- Sounded strained on the higher notes, but has a cool, current sound. He added some cool dance moves, but I could have done without the beatbox this time. Good performance overall.

Lakisha Jones: "Diamonds Are Forever"-Not one of her best vocals, but she is one of the best in the competition so she will be safe.

Phil Stacey: "Tobacco Road"-Nice energy. Nice upper register, but I have heard hundreds of guys that can sing this good. Phil is my prediction for who is going home this week. Phil, you had a good run, but so long man.

Jordin Sparks: "I Who Have Nothing"-Jordin has mad skills for a 17 year old. It was a cool song. She has huge pipes, and is easily one of the best on the show. We may be looking at a winner here.

Sanjaya Malakar: Even before he sang I wanted him off of the show. Right before they went to break there was Sanjaya flailing in front of the camera with his tongue out. Why is this guy here? Then he sang. All of a sudden he is a rocker? Why was the girl crying? Please help me understand. I want him to go home, but he will stick around another round.

Gina Glocksen: "Painted Black"-Nothing special, but the drummer was getting loose behind her.

Chris Sligh: "She's Not There"-It was kind of a boring performance. I like Chris, but it was kind of a forgettable performance. It was a good vocal though.

Melinda Doolittle: "As Long As He Needs Me"-Amazing vocalist. Reminds me of Natalie Cole a bit. She is relishing every moment and making it count. Melinda should be the winner. She has a bright future.
That is all for now. Out.

I'm a cartoonist from New Jersey, and last night was my first encounter with Sanjaya. Here are my thoughts about him.
