@AndyShore It’s that time of the week again. Tonight the top-11 contestants compete. To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, they are doing country night? LAME. Can America vote off the person who’s decision it was to make it country week, instead of one of the contestants?
-A.S. The American Idol results are in. Viewers were treated with a performance from the entirety of group one, as everyone tuned in to see who got voted off American Idol. Tonight’s results show also featured a performance from former American Idol contestants Michael Johns and Carly Smithson.
The first contestant welcomed into the American Idol top 12 was Alexis Grace. She was clearly one of the top two females from last night, getting the nod over Tatiana del Toro. With the pressure off, she performed Aretha Franklin “I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Loved You),” and sounded even better than she did last night. Read the rest of this entry »
-A.S. Danny Gokey has been my favorite since his audition. I called then that he would go far. Tonight, he was the best of the first 12 performances. They certainly saved the best for last. We sat for two hours, waiting for somebody to step up. Danny Gokey to the rescue. He brought the house down singing Maria Carey “Hero.” Besides, how can you not pull for the guy with the dead wife? He’s the biggest feel good story of the season and Google searchers agree. “Danny Gokey wife” is a top-5 trend on Google Trends right now.
My other two picks from tonight are Anoop Desai and Tatiana del Toro. I really like Alexis Grace better than Tatiana del Toro, but I think Tatiana came up with a better vocal performance tonight.
