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.
