American Idol Chatter – Top 8

April 12, 2011

So the last time we dished on Idol, we had 13. Now, we’re down to just 8 going into this week. Y’all still watchin’? Holla!

I gotta be honest. For the first time ever, I’ve been doing the speed-watching technique (I ❤ my DVR!). Just not catching my interest this season for some reason. I fast-forward through all the nonsense chatter, and just watch the package before the contestants sing (to get a feel for their personality) and then their actual performance. I give that a few seconds and if it bores me to tears, it’s more fast forwarding for me.

I actually watch everything (package and performance) on Casey Abrams (still seems humble and buggah makes me laugh), Haley Reinhart (why not?), Lauren Alaina (seems humble and is still my pick to win!), and Scotty McCreery (to see if I can catch more arrogance from him). The others, I’ll just watch the first few seconds of their performance if anything.

Here’s my previous notes from the American Idol Chatter – Top 13 blog, with updated, Top 8 notes. Add your own comments for your favorite contestants at the bottom!

  • Casey Abrams – LOOOOOVE this guy! He cracks me up! He reminds me of Will Ferrell and Seth Rogen combined. Plus he can SAAAANG, and he still seems humble! (I still feel the same. Thank goodness he got saved!)
  • Haley Reinhart – good eye candy (right rayboyjr?), plus she can sing pretty good too. Don’t think she has what it takes to win though. Also looks like she might lose her temper at one of the judges down the road. (I still feel the same. American public is probably getting sick of her antics pretty soon.)
  • Jacob Lusk – pretty good singer, but don’t really like the way he overstylizes everything. If he sang straight-forward, he’d be a lot better. (Still feel the same.)
  • James Durbin – Adam Lambert copycat. He can scream-sing ok, but not sure how he’ll do with regular songs. (Still feel the same.)
  • Lauren Alaina – My pick to win. She’s so naturally talented and sings without any effort. Seems humble too. I like that. (Still feel the same)
  • Paul McDonald – very quirky, but I like it. Seems like a nice guy and his smile is infectious. (Still feel the same, though I wonder if his style is getting repetitive?)
  • Scotty McCreery – CAN’T STAND HIM!!! You can just tell how conceited he is. He is his own #1 fan. Dear lord he better not win! I will admit that he has a good country singing voice, but I can’t stand listening to somebody so into himself. He reminds me of last season’s Michael Lynche! And he tries to act all nice and respectful, but I’m not buying it! 😛 (Still feel the same. Even J-Lo told him to not get into his own head too much! I LOVE IT! You can tell that he’s trying to tone it down a little bit and act humble, but I’m still not buying it!)
  • Stefano Langone – pretty strong voice in the upper register. Seems nice, but talks too much. (He’s starting to annoy me and needs to go. He still talks too much and seems to be getting conceited as well.)

Eliminated Notes:

  • Ashton Jones – way too much spunk/confidence for me. There’s more show than singing so far to me. (Not a surprise at all that she got eliminated early.)
  • Karen Rodriguez – one of my favorite girls to win the whole thing. She can blow! (This was a slight shocker! I thought she could sing the lights out!)
  • Naima Adedapo – No idea why she made it. I can appreciate that she has so much passion for singing, but I still haven’t seen anything worthwhile from her. I hope she proves me wrong, because I really think the judges made a mistake by not putting Robbie Rosen through. (Not really a surprise that she got eliminated)
  • Pia Toscano – OK, and pretty good voice. Need to hear more from her to have a better opinion. (WHAT IN THE HECK!!!??? I thought for sure she should’ve stayed on until close to the end. Maybe America assumed she would be safe???)
  • Thia Megia – kinda quiet, but can sing pretty good. That Michael Jackson comparison from Randy Jackson was a reach I thought, but she has a pretty good voice. Wanna see more personality from her. (She can sing, but it wasn’t really a surprise as she lacked the personality for America to latch onto. I’m sure she’ll do fine as she is still so young and talented).

My picks for the Top 3 finalists are:

  1. Lauren Alaina
  2. Casey Abrams
  3. Karen Rodriguez

Talk to me!
* Is it me or is Steven Tyler the worst judge ever invented? He says “Beautiful” like 100 times a show for everything and doesn’t offer any constructive advice/criticism at all. I think I want Paula back! LOL!
* Can we all agree that J-Lo is awesome? She seems so genuine and that she really cares for the contestants. Her advice is always on point too.
* Have you guys heard about the budding romance between Casey Abrams and Haley Reinhart? Oooooh… rumors! LOL!
* What do you think of the contestants left? Any surprises?
* Who is your pick to win it all?

Have a good one y’all!

Fave Friday – Teenage Crushes

May 14, 2010

Playboy Magazine in 3DSo supposedly, some magazine by the name of “Playboy” is jumping on the 3D bandwagon and coming out with a 3D edition of its own some time today. Playboy? I’ve never heard of it. What’s it all about? *grin*

In honor of this magazine I’ve never heard of, I was gonna ask you guys for your fave mags of all time, but we kinda-sorta did that one already. So instead, let’s focus on what every snotty-nosed teenager does what he reads this type of magazine: falls in love. In this case, it’s with Hope Dworaczyk.

Crushes. We’ve all had ’em. Not with Playboy models per se, but growing up with our raging hormones (yeah, I’m talking to you ladies too! 😛 ), we’ve all secretly (or not so secretly) had our eye on that cute girl/guy in our 5th period history class. (Dear lord, I’m dating myself!) Or perhaps we fell in love with that kid actor on the cover of Tiger Beat magazine, or that cool singer on MTV.

Whoevahz!

Just share your list and share your list good with the rest of the WWE `ohana. We promise not to judge… much! 8)

In no particular order, here are some of mine that I can remember, off the top of my head…

* Alicia Silverstonewhat ever happened to her anyway? Guess this site answers our questions.
* Patricia FordI was actually almost signed on to help her do her official web site, but things kinda fell through. That might’ve been fun eh?
* Pamela Anderson (NSFW) – at least until she got all crazy. Hehe!
* Danica McKellar“Wonder Years”! I always wanted to be “Kevin”! She’s actually a math nerd now!
* Christina ApplegateDem years on “Married with Children”… ’nuff said!
* Girl in my 7th grade math class! – Shhh! LOL!
* Girl in my college history class! – too bad she didn’t know I existed! LOL!

I know, lots yeah!? Da worst part is I know I’m missing some. Bahahaha! Nah, not dat bad… I think!

BTW, do you guys know what a “unicorn” is? My co-worker says that a “unicorn” is someone that you’ll always have feelings for, no matter how long it has been. Is it true that we all have that one “unicorn” in life???

Talk to me!
* What are your thoughts of Playboy Magazine going 3D?
* Post your list of crushes (during your teenage years) in the comment area below! Can be celebs or peeps you know IRL.
* What do you think of the “unicorn” theory? Do you have your own unicorn?

Hijack This!
* Surprised that Cleveland lost to Boston yesterday? What do you think of Bron Bron’s future in Cleveland? How do you think Boston stacks up against my boys in blue (Orlando)?
* Thoughts on Michael Lynche’s departure from American Idol? Think he has a future in music?
* Big weekend planned?

Have a happy VH07v Friday (and weekend) y’all! Shooooooots! 🙂
