Too funny, Mags. My mom always says—slow as molasses in January! Voting for Phillip as fast as I can. :)
I like The Avett Brothers, too! One I just stumbled on that you might like is Trampled By Turtles. They are a little more bluegrassy, but they have these beautifully sad songs. But their instrumentals are fast-paced and awesome. Their fiddler can play like mad!
Here is their latest song, Alone: http://youtu.be/ejfMrZQU3Eo
Hollywood Gossip blog at facebook shows PP winning. Of course that’s unscientific. What disturbed me was that the camera crew at AI tonight kept showing a professional looking sign that said: PHEEL BETTER PHILLIP. It’s as if they were trying to imply that PP was too sickly to be the American Idol. They kept going bk to that professional sign. I do believe that was intentional and while PP was up there, of course he has no idea what all the cameras are shooting. Skylar and Hollie were way more interesting and ambitious about this process.
LOVED the Phillip song! Listened to it a few times. :)
Because TMZ reported that Phil’s doctor said he was too sick to continue.
Did anyone see Joshua in the audience tonight? I didn’t.
Wow they are good. I posted that to my facebook to remember it. Thanks.
LOL...I imagined Billy Joel taking a hammer or a shotgun to his TV if he was watching.
I guess the younger audience loves the rendition, because they did not listen to Billy sing it 2 billion times (as some of that grew up on him did). I really enjoy Philip, but this one hurt my ears.
Jimmy really stuck it to Jessica with that song selection. The judges called him out. On one hand, I’d like to see her win because of her talent. On the other hand, maybe she would be better off not winning and being under his “guidance”.
Are his kidneys that bad? After tomorrow night, I wonder what they'll do for him.
Jessica might win this, judging by the initial likes/dislikes on American Idol’s YouTube page for each performance.
Phillip’s best came out in his last performance.
I’d say Jessica deserves to win, but I wish them both well.
Jessica vs. Phillips is a joke. Jessica is one of the greatest singers in AI history. Phillips will probably win because he's a handsome kid.
Ledet, Skylar, Colton, Testone, Van Pelt, Hollie and Deandre all sing circles around him.
If he wins I will be extremely happy for him. He seems like a really good guy.
Here is a piece of trivia for those of you that didn’t know- which I didn’t.
The secret behind LFMAO group..you know the one...singing Party Rock and Sexy and I know it...
is that Berry Gordy is the father of the dude with the glasses.
Yeah, maybe when he seems lazy to me, but he just feels bad and hard to hide when something is chronic like that. Burt Reynolds had that too a while ago.
Sounds like he’s someone who is willing to endure a lot to reach a goal.
He’s not our favorite but that’s an American Idol quality to us.
Will be interesting to see how the voting turns out and if we have our first
I’m glad you liked it! I was going through Amazon’s recommendations and wasn’t really impressed with anything (the words, “Why does Amazon recommend this crap to me???” may have been said out loud), but that one really struck me.
I'm waiting to change the bag on my vacuum cleaner during Joshua's screaming duet with whoever.
And the words aren't bleeped :)
I know. Usually they have at least one fast-paced song thrown into the mix. Jessica was all Sominex last night.
P2 wasn't much better.
I can't remember such a dull, lifeless, anti-climactic final two.
Phillips breaks out the acoustic guitar, sets the forehead vein to maximum, and turns an 80's novelty song into a growling Dave Matthewsy ballad--with absolutely no melody.
The judges declare it genius.
I totally agree with how boring last night was. I usually have a favorite between the last two....especially when one is from my area....but after last night, I just don't really care who wins.
I have to add, for all those that are not from this area (which I call Northern Mexico) I thought it was funny how Seacrest pronounced the name of Jessica's town last night. He said it with a little Mexican flavor, as we all do....Chuuula Veeesta (in the same accent as "Guns? We don't need no steenkin guns"). I hadn't heard him do that until last night. Cracked me up.
On the plus side, we’re just hours away from setting up The DeWyze Guyz Summer Tour 2013.
There is probably some questionable gunk in the bathroom that needs scraping too:)
Just a heads up for tonight. A handsome friend is coming to my house to cook me dinner. As these invitations do not come along all that often, I must split my time. I have warned him AI is on and being he is a musician I am sure he will roll his eyes and have a comment or two.
What exactly is wrong with PP?
PP had a great night last night. Is tonight the finale, no waiting until next week? It just wasn’t Jessica’s night and someone wrote a real stinker of a song for her. PP’s song was somethin’ memorable that people could even play at weddings and anniversaries. I want to take you home or something like that but not in a sexy Rod Stewart kind of meaning.
Katherine McPhee’s mom is a singing coach. I wonder exactly how she helped either of these contestants.
Has it EVER occurred to anybody here that Jessica may have anorexia? She incredible thin, emaciated and maybe that’s why she’s not been singing any fast, powerific tunes lately. She looks emaciated to me - more than on day 1.
Dull competition between an anorexic and a guy with kidnay problems. They should have had medical sponsors this year instead of soft drinks and cars.
She isnt emaciated, she is a Filipino (read that to mean ASIAN background, ergo slight built and prone to be TINY)...
So lets not try and make excuses for her not singing a ‘fast” tune....the blame is on the producers that selected crap songs for all of them last night!
Love or hate Flamebert he can put on a show and has some great singing chops. When he does runs in a song they are always clean and spot on. He has some of the best voice control out there.
No, it hasn’t occurred to me at all. Bodies come in all shapes and sizes.
You have absolutely no basis for throwing around very serious accusations like Jessica having an eating disorder. Even if she did, it’s no one’s business but her’s and her family’s and certainly not yours.
LOL! Seriously. It was like Obama without a Teleprompter.
Or Biden with one.
I believe he is sure to win tonight.
My AI triva for the night.
I was wondering why Kelly Clarkson was playing such a big role as a mentor on The Voice since she has a new show on ABC
It turns out she is dating Reba McIntires stepson - who Blake Shelton’s manager.
I think the dad is involved some kind of way with Kelly Clarkson..maybe manager.
What could possibly go wrong there...
Hang on a second...with all of that iter-marriage, Im gonna need to make some graphs! ;-)
Evening Jonny . Thanks for an enjoyable thread this season.
Lot of hard work done by you. Greatly appreciated, and a lot of fun.
Calling the win for PP.
We shall see
Kelly hasn’t had very good luck in the love dept. Hope this time it works out-she is very good friends with Reba and it could be awkward if things go south!
With apoligies to Mantasia......”Can I get an AMEN on THIS!?!”
Im gonna miss you like mad...but Im glad this season is coming to a close!
guess we’re going to have to quit meeting like this. will miss the thread, will not miss show
This is it!
With this opening...it is a safe bet that ticket sales for their AI road show...are gonna tank!
So when did they change the show day to Tuesday?
Yeah, it was no where near as good as the original.
LOL! I’m a little under the weather tonight so I probably won’t be here much. I’m gonna miss youze guys!!!
