I wasn’t able to watch television Tuesday evening, so the Wife and I watched both the performances and the results show Wednesday evening. One can certainly get through the shows quickly when you skip the commercials, fluff and repetiion.
The theme for the week was songs of Shania Twain.
You’re Still The One
Loved the opening. It was really in a sweet spot of his voice. But why is he doing that John Mayer thing with his mouth, …Read the rest of this entry...
In conjunction with Idol Gives Back, the theme was inspiration songs. Unfortunately, I found the performances overall to be mediocre, not inspirational.
Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow by Fleetwood Mac
Once again, nothing risky, but a solid performance. The Wife thought he could have given the performance a bit more edge, but that it was good.
I’ve liked a number of Casey’s performances, but we’re getting towards the end. Safe may not cut it. Time to take chances, …Read the rest of this entry...

Overall, it was ok, but a bit boring.
Let It Be
Great song, but any time the theme has anything to …Read the rest of this entry...
The theme for the week was R&B and the mentor was Usher, so my expectations weren’t very high. Frankly, anything I liked was likely to be called old by Simon.Read the rest of this entry...
Tonight’s theme was Number One Hits of the Billboard Hot 100, and for some reason, Siobhan came on stage with a Sanjaya faux-hawk. But I guess if we could understand Siobhan, she wouldn’t be nearly as interesting.Read the rest of this entry...
American Idol moved to the big stage with the Top Twelve, and the theme for the week is the Rolling Stones. This looks to be a rough week for many of the contestants.Read the rest of this entry...
I actually had something resembling a life last night, so The Wife and I didn’t get around to watching the eight remaining women perform on American Idol until this evening. Given that we cut down to the Final Twelve this week, the pressure was definitely on.Read the rest of this entry...
The gals were on stage last night, after this week’s schedule shift due to an illness by Crystal Bowersox. Crystal, who is rumored to have diabetes, looked fine and led off the show.Read the rest of this entry...
Tonight the twelve men of the Top 24 performed on American Idol. There are definitely some good voices in the group, and some likable personalities, but I’m not sure there’s anyone with real star quality.
I hoped to be proven wrong this evening.Read the rest of this entry...
