American Idol 8

I must say that I was not at all pleased with some of the choices for the top 36 on American Idol last night. A few good talents (in my humble opinion) were given the boot and some ridiculous people were let through.

I'm sad to see Jamar not making the cut cos I think he has soul and would have given the rest of them a run for their money. And the worse thing is someone like Nick (no, not that annoying fellow from Anything Goes ... LOL!) but that Normal Gentle fellow actually made it through.

I have nothing against him and granted he can sing but I seriously think he's in the wrong show. Last Comic Standing would suit him better. He reminds me more of 'Weird Al' Yankovic! I don't think he has superstar material. Now come on, seriously, would you buy his album if he actually won American Idol?

Oh well, I guess that's why I'm not paid the big bucks to be a judge on the show ... hehehe ... But at least my two favourites, Danny Gokey and Stevie Wright made it. And I'm happy those two roughnecks (the welder and oil rig guy) made it too :D There are some other pretty good talents to watch out for this season so it's going to be a blast watching American Idol this year :D


Oh and another one who deserved to be kicked out is that annoying Tatiana Del Toro! Oh my god, I can't stand her! I hope she gets booted out fast during the live shows. And if you want the full list of top 36 contestants, you can check it out at Nessa Mumblings. That girl is the queen of reality TV ... hehehe ...

Stevie chose the wrong song and she was horrible. What a waste!

Anoop was a disappointment... of all songs, why pick Monica's song??? They never listen to the judges' advice during Hollywood week. Grrr... gerammm!!!

Nessa - Yeah, she deserved to be kicked out ... siggghhh ...

Actually quite a lot of them were a disappointment la. I hope the next batch of them are at least a little better :D
