Hey, everybody. I hope you are having a good week. I only have a second...I am in the studio, and I need to stop blogging in a minute so I will have plenty of time to TOTALLY OBSESS over what key to sing "O Holy Night" in.
I wanted to check in with everyone before Idol tonight. I never did a recap of my own. So here is my two cents worth about last week's show.
There is a huge momentum shift happening in David Cook's favor right now. At first it was all David Archuleta. Now it's Mr. Cook. He really has been amazing for a few weeks in a row now. I still am not convinced he can win...but he sure is doing some amazing singing.
I am still on the Brooke train...once again cheesy me downloaded her song. I thought it was great.
What's the deal with the judges giving bad marks for the arrangements? Is this Producer Idol or American idol? I say, judge their voice and performance. Not their arrangement.
OK...off the soap box.
Syesha had another great week. I hope she lasts this week...and I hope she has picked a killer Dolly song.
Michael Johns and Carly Smithson were both great. I thought they were too hard on Carly...I love that song (Total Eclipse Of The Heart) and I thought she sounded amazing.
Of course, David Archuleta was good again. I still think in my American Idol gut check that he is the one to beat.
That's all I got for now.
I have another funny Levi story. Last night, Angela made something that she hadn't made in a while. She sauteed Tempeh with oil, garlic and soy sauce. Yum. It was delicious.
Obviously Levi was not a fan. He took one bite and went running to the trash can. After spitting it out, he said, "Yuck. I hate it. It's so awkward."
He has been intrigued with that word - awkward - for a while now. He still can't get it in a sentence just right. But he certainly did a good job selling it in that sentence last night.
Have a good day. We'll chat after idol.
Turn around bright eyes.
