Anyone else think Ryan was funny tonight? I loved that little joke between him and Simon. It was hilarious and witty! I thought the judges songs were very aptly picked, the contestant's song picks we just eh and what is going on with the producer's picks? Do they even know the contestants at all? I have never been really impressed with their picks in the past either. I agree with Simon though--the night went to David Cook. But are we surprised? I just have one request:
DON'T VOTE FOR DAVID COOK!
He will do SO much better if he gets picked up by a recording label instead of being stuck to the American Idol contract. Let him have a chance like Chris Daughtry.
And So It Goes: That was a beautiful song. I really liked it. While he was singing it I imagined myself in a field of grass with yellow flowers and my eyes closed. It was very peaceful.
With You: Well he took my advice to sing something that wasn't 50 years old, but it was just okay for me. It was kinda weird and didn't sound in tune some of the time.
Longer: It was good, but didn't stand out for me. I really like that song and think it's a pretty song but again nothing special.
If I Ain't Got You: I thought she sang it beautifully but she sounded exactly like Alicia Keyes. Nothing too extraordinary
Fever: Good job singing but seriously...the dancing? That was way amateurish. She needs to be on Broadway not on American Idol. She needs to go sing on Chicago or something.
Hit Me Up: Well I didn't like that song at all. Blech...
First Time Ever I Saw Your Face: Pretty awesome. I think he totally pulled it off--but then David can do no wrong in my eyes. I loved the slow build to the high note at the end.
Dare You To Move: It was all right...I have gotten kind of sick of that song lately. Just a little shout out to local San Diego music-woot woot! He didn't do too much with the song though.
I Don't Want To Miss A Thing: Okay this song is WAY overplayed but he did a good job with it. I really liked the violins again too.
Well all in all it was a great show! I hope that David Cook gets kicked off but it will probably be Syesha to land the David's in the finale.
