@AndyShore Overall, it was a less than spectacular week one from American Idol. My favorite of the girls, Ashley Rodriguez, might be in trouble. Joe Munoz unexpectedly stood out from the guys. After Idol played up the chemistry between Casey James and Kara, her husband is sitting front and center. Tim Urban and Tyler Grady should go home from the guys. I’m not as sure about the girls, but I do hope Haeley Vaughn is one of them.8:06 Excellent work by the cameraman that decided it was an good idea to keep the camera on Seacrest snapping along and bobbing his head.
8:07 Aaron Kelly, Alex Lambert and Joe Munoz sounded like the Chipmunks. It was promptly followed by the Oreo choreography of Todrick Hall, Lee Dewyze and Jermaine Sellers.
8:12 Siobhan Magnus is safe, leaving me to try and figure out how to spell her name for another week. Haeley Vaughn is also safe. Please stop letting her embarrass herself, America. Michelle Delamor, Katelyn Epperly and Katie Stevens are also safe. Janelle Wheeler is gone. There are probably 3-4 girls that were worse.
8:24 I would have voted Allison Iraheta off, before Janelle Wheeler. Those points at the end were so awkward.
8:26 Paige Miles, Lacey Brown, Lilly Scott, Crystal Bowersox and Didi Benami are all safe. This is the end for Ashley Rodriguez. She’s easy on the eyes, but not so much on the ears.
8:36 Big Mike Lynche, Jon Park, Aaron Kelly, Todrick Hall and Tim Urban are safe. Joe Munoz is going home. That’s just wrong. That’s two people who might go Steve Buscemi in Billy Madison on Tim Urban.
8:49 Kris Allen is singing “Let It Be.” It’s a great performance, but it’s a little ridiculous to perform in front of a giant screen showing yourself doing charity work. Show Haiti. Leave yourself out of it. That being said, go download this performance on iTunes if you like Kris Allen and or the Beatles. It’s for a good cause.
8:56 Casey James, Jermaine Sellers, Lee Dewyze, Andrew Garcia and Alex Lambert are safe. Tyler Grady doesn’t get to creep anybody else out. Except for this one last time. He actually sounds better than last night, but the arrangement is still better than him.
