Inspiration Night on American Idol

Well I know you were all waiting on the edge of your seat for my weekly synopsis fo American Idol, but this week I'm disappointing. I was at an Usborne book party tonight so I missed watching it. I did however get to watch all the performances on Youtube.com but I'm just not feeling up to writing about it this time.

I don't feel inspired at all. :) Today has been an emotional day and I'm just not in the mood for writing.

So tell me what you all thought of the show tonight!

too bad, I missed it too. I actually was hoping to hear your summary to make up for not seeing it. oh well, there's always the recap tomorrow night.
hope you have a better day tomorrow.

I didn't miss it! Michael Johns(when does he NOT deliver?) and David Cook (I wasn't too keen on his song choice) rocked the stage as usual. The judges LOVED David Archuleta as usual.... the were hard on Brooke and Karly but were suprisingly nice and gave praise to Kristy Lee and the dreads guy (which I'm normally not a fan of this dopey kid, but he did really well tonight).

I'm afraid for.... Brooke (and she is too, she was crying after the judges comments) and Karly (I'm sad because I actually think that Karly has genuine talent and should be one of the final 3) and Ayesha.... she is good, BUT I think that she's pretty typical in her genre. Her voice, although good, doesn't really give us a taste of something new.....

anyway, hope this makes up for you not giving your recap, although I know your favorites are different than mine.... so I'm a little biased!

I wish I was there to drag you out to lunch and bake you some cookies... I WISH I were in San Diego!!! It's cold, rainy and sad here in the SL valley.... enjoy the green for me!

Emily, I knew someone would pull through for us! I actually saw the performances on Youtube and really liked Michael Johns. I was wondering how the judges were. Brooke was a little boring but I still like her. Thanks for the recap!

Emily gave a good synopsis. I thought Michael Johns did well, too. But dude, is he like trying to bring back the ascot or something? This was the second week in a row he's done the little scarfy thing.

Brooke seemed fairly emotional through the song as well--I'm not sure she was crying just because of the judges comments. I think it is a possibility that she could end up in the bottom three, although I still love her. I would put Syesha there (sorry, she just bores me) and Carly (she has a great voice, but she was just a'ight last night) and Kristy Lee (she actually had her best performance last night, I think, but I'm still not a fan).

I'm sorry you're not having a good day. I hope you feel better very soon.

I was looking forward to reading your synopsis. I found you from Cheryl. I did one, too. It's at www.allenfamilyupdate.blogspot.com
I'm too opinionated for a comment here. But I will say the night totally belonged to Jason. Whom I just love.

I have to say that I find all of the singers on American Idol to be pretty entertaining most every week. It's a great group. As for last night....loved the dreds kid Jason Castro and always like Brooke White. Neither will win, but they are my favorites. The Australian dude was so-so and David Cook??? What was that song all about????? Weird. I'm also a fan of Christy Lee Cook. I think the judges have been continually unfair to her. She does her own thing and stands tall each and every week. They like Archuleta....it's obvious!! He was really good, but just doesn't do it for me. Karly Smithson will probably be going home. She picked a poor choice of a song unfortunately. Her voice is beautiful though. Ayesha sang well too, but it's standard fair...so her time is numbered.

I didn't get to see most of them, but the ones I did see, I wasn't impressed with...
Hope you're doing better today!!
