  • Bye Bye Haley

    Top 8 performed last night with mixed opinions from the judges. Tonight, the result show saw Akon performed (which was awesome), and Jennifer Lopez who I thought was fantastic! Loved the pyros!

    Back to the results:-

    Bottom 3 - Phil Stacey, Haley Scarnato, Chris Richardson

    Chris was safe and sent back to join the rest of the group, which left Phil and Haley in the bottom 2.

    Eliminated - Haley. (I thought her exit was pretty emotional).

    Again, I wasn't surprised that Sanjaya was not in the bottom 3 at all. *cough* *cough* I have to give him credit though, he didn't do too bad last night. He actually sounded ok. But I still think he is the weakest singer in the competition. For me, it was a toss up between Phil and Haley to be in the bottom 2 anyway, so no surprises there that Haley had to go. On the other hand, I thought she performed way better for her exit than last night. Maybe, just maybe she could have been saved if she had performed like she did tonight.

    Anyway, next week, COUNTRY with Martina McBride mentoring. Should be an interesting week.moreless
  • Haley wasn't the best, but it seems that everyone forgot that Sanjaya is still in the competition!

    American Idol was up for one hour tonight. They had amazing performances, comedy and drama.

    The show starts off and Ryan as usual, asks the judges on what they thought about the previous night's performances overall. They took longer than usual because they decided to stretch the could have been 30 minute show into a whole hour of agony for the contestants. The contestants also perform as a group and they perform a Latin song together. The performance was OK, it wasn't really anything special.

    Besides Jennifer Lopez, Akon also performs. It seems like Akon is a huge American Idol fan, and it seems that he is also a huge supporter of the "Idol Gives Back" project that the show has launched a few weeks ago. I liked his performance, he got the crowd going. I have to admit though, I was never much of an Akon fan, but he actually seems good.

    American Idol tries to give out some joy in a results show. They have Ryan and Simon going at it nearly all over the episode. It's fun to see them quarrel, but sometimes it's just too often and you'd just like to say, "Can you tell us who went home already?" The American public is also given a chance to win $100,000. We are shown a clip of Simon in Africa.

    We finally get started with the whole elimination process. After the review of last night's performances, Ryan tells us that LaKisha, Jordin, Melinda, Blake and Sanjaya are safe. Leaving Phil, Haley and Chris at the bottom three. Sanjaya belongs down there, well actually he doesn't belong at the competition at all.

    Chris is quickly send back to safety after the break. I think it was quite obvious. Jennifer Lopez also performed after the break. Her performance was great even if I couldn't understand a word she was singing. I still enjoyed it.

    After the break, we are left with Phil and Haley in the bottom 2. Haley is revealed to be the one going home. As usual, she performs the song she performed the previous night. I don't think Haley should have gone. Again, I think Sanjaya should have gone, but from the bottom 3, I think Haley did worse than Phil last night. America didn't do as bad as last week when they eliminated Gina, but wrong again America.moreless
  • I'm glad Haley's gone, but Sanjaya was safe??

    This episode was an hour long. This episode had a part about Idol Gives Back, which is a fantastic idea. It was funny when the child in Africa drew Simon with boobs. Ha Ha Ha!! OMG I was laughing so hard. Akon also performed a song that I don't know. He did ok I guess. The 8 finalists made a Ford commercial and it was pretty cool. Then, Ryan announced who was in the bottom 3. Phil was first, then Haley, then Chris R. I can't believe Chris R was in the bottom instead of Sanjaya. Are you serious?? Then, Jennifer Lopez performed and it was very good. Then, Ryan said that Chris R was safe. Then, he said that Phil was safe, which meant Haley was going home. Finally!! She sang Turn the Beat Around, then the episode ended.moreless
  • Say goodbye to Haley Scarnato

    It was no surprise this time that Haley Scarnato would go home tonight. With the exception of at least one singer, Haley was clearly outmatched by the competition this year.

    The biggest surprise is that Sanjaya actually sang pretty well tonight! He has been entertaining, but ultimately, it will come down to who can make a seriously huge impact on the music industry today. On another note, I'm gonna wish Sanjaya well for the future.

    With Haley gone, Phil Stacey is next to fall. Hopefully, he will prove me wrong.

    The problem I have with Chris Richardson is that every time I think about who's left in the competition, he's always the last person I remember. I struggle with that because he's not memorable. Chris is talented, but I still mistaken him for a cross between Justin Timberlake and Kevin Federline. His only chance to advance further is to break out of these stereotypes and become Chris Richardson.

    Lakisha Jones did well last night. She is still one of the stronger voices out there in the competition. Still, her problem is that she still misses the opportunity to bridge the gap between what was in and what is current today. Lakisha needs to appeal to a younger audience. At her age, it's close to impossible. However, it's NOT impossible.

    Jordin Sparks is still one of my favorite singers to watch. She's cute, she's bubbly, and she's an old soul. I couldn't care less if Jordin was an over-sugared and syrupy personality. I'll gladly take it any day of the week! :)

    Then there is one of my favorite singers --- Blake Lewis. I'm so proud that he represents Seattle with a passion. I'm so happy he proves Simon wrong in SO many ways. He's talented, gifted, and original. Simon should DEFINITELY come back to Seattle and find more talented singers. Blake, you are the man!!!

    Finally, the time has come for a former backup singer to come out of her shell --- Melinda Doolittle. What a shy and attractive personality she is! She's low-key and high-profile. She's coy and is ridiculously awesome (although I'm not sure if this is the right contrast...oh well). She's 29 and is still young and vibrant. Although people criticize her for being "too innocent", the truth is, I'm like that too! Unfortunately, this tells me that there are WAY too many cynics out there saying stuff like that. So I don't mind it at all. I'll vote for her the entire way!!! GO MELINDA!!!moreless
  • Say adio's to Haley Scarnato......

    Well even though every week Sanjaya should be going home, my next pick I guess would have been either Chris Richardson or Haley Scarnato. So it was Haley's time to go, and I'm going to miss her too. I acturally liked her last night, I thought it was her best performance to tell you the truth. But I did have a feeling she was going to go home tonight. So best of luck to ya Haley!moreless
