Right. It’s time again to comment on AI season 7’s top 24 and on to the first 12. It’s the guys’ night and I was eager to see some good performances. Here goes.
David Hernandez started the show with a song that’s quite often heard in the competition. “In The Midnight Hour” failed to entertain me as this guy looked like he just stepped into a gas chamber. The voice? Not so bad. But he’s got an eerie resemblance to Enrique Iglesias sans the mole. Wait, Mr. Iglesias have got that removed as well. So yeah, it’s just weird.
Next we have an eyesore, pardon my language, Chikezie Eze. Dude come on, ORANGE? I know it’s kinda normal to want to dress for the decade, but please. Do consider people’s sight. Seriously. And what’s with the attitude? I thought Danny Noriega would be the queen of the competition. I think he’s not gonna be the only one. Guess Mr. Cowell slapped not only Mr. Eze, but those bunch of stylists backstage who by now have probably gotten a mouthful from the Barry White wannabe. The voice isn’t bad, though.
David Cook appeared next and all I remember was that he picked up the mic stand and went all ‘rocker-y’. Okay. Not much there.
Next up we have Jason Yeager who, if I scream at him, would probably run to a corner and cry. And what’s with the styled-up son? Big hair on a little boy? Man, the dad was so boring that I was wishing the camera to sweep across the son to make sure the kid wasn’t wearing a hairpiece.
I expected Robbie Carrico to be more like Bo Bice in terms of voice material, but he sounded no better than Yeager. I think behind that “rocker” look, he actually fits the criteria to fill in Robbie William’s place in Take That.
David Archuletta… hm. Can’t seem to make up my mind about this kid. He’s too sweet my tooth aches. But he’s got a huge huge voice and girls will like him. So yeah, let’s wait for some girl to cry seeing him perform in the finals. Good thing he doesn’t have a Sanjaya-ish hair problem.
I got the creeps seeing Danny Noriega in his way too skinny pants. Really. And to perform the King’s Jailhouse Rock like that? Um… nope. Nope. It’s just wrong. I liked Noriega in the auditions, but this time it’s a nay and not a yay. But way to go on the snapping back. That’ll put Chikezie in his place.
Luke Menard. Um which one was that again? Oh, the one with the hooded jacket? Yeah. I don’t have a lot to say as I was busy eating my dinner.
While Luke Menard helped me halfway through dinner, Colton Berry gave me a chance to finish up my dessert. Boring.
I’m no Neil Sedaka fan, but I’ve always liked this Idol-ish song: Breaking Up Is Hard To Do. Now this made me have to look at Garret Haley’s performance which was not THAT good but was not THAT bad. Again, my views might be impaired to my liking the song. But to be on the serious side, I have to agree with Mr. Cowell. This guy looks nothing like Peter Frampton. He looked like he’s been tortured domestically. And get that hair off your face, dude. You look like Carole King or some other 70’s reject.
Ah to see a hippie with a guitar, singing a song called “Daydream”. Loving Jason Castro’s voice and although I never go for guys with dreadlocks, there’s nothing dreadful about him. Just lovely. Can’t wait to see what he has in store next week.
And finally, okay, falling for Simon Cowell’s British accent might just be my case in the beginning of the season, but as the show rolls on… I guess I’m open for Aussie accent as well. Let’s just put it this way, I had a huge crush on Constantine Maroulis a couple of seasons back. Now it’s Michael Johns. And that’s because he doesn’t f*ck with the camera as often as Maroulis, and he sounds way better. HAHA!
Top 3 – Michael Johns, Jason Castro and David Archuletta.
Bottom 3 – Jason Yeager, Luke Menard, Colton Berry.
Yellow Light – Chikezie Eze, David Cook, Danny Noriega.
Yep. Let’s wait for the ladies tomorrow night 😉
