It was Andrew Steroid Webber week on AI. I'm just sayin' that when I wake up all puffy in the morning, I see someone in the mirror resembling Andrew Lloyd Webber. And we aren't pretty.
Syesha was definitely in her element singing a show tune. But here's my confusion: Isn't this supposed to be a pop singer contest? I'm so confused by all of the categories like country and Broadway. I didn't think flexibility was so much an issue or goal in past seasons. Pause for thought ... so when are we going to have Osmond week?? Taking that catalog on requires talent, real talent. And jumpsuits. Just because you can sing a little musical theatre or Queen doesn't mean you can handle "Crazy Horses."
I actually liked Jason's rendition of "Memories," although his naivete was so funny: "I had no idea it was a cat singing." And this news flash just in: Paula says Jason is "not a female power balladeer." Given a sharp observation like that, Jason may be one step closer to finding his muscial niche. I would just like to be the first to say that Jason is not a unisex yodeler, either. I'm just trying to help Jason zero in on some crucial details.
Oh, Brooke! What has happened here, people? I don't know whether I'm more surprised by the false start or Simon's graciousness toward her. Do you think her lapse will hurt her in the voting tonight? I think it might.
ALW advised David A. to keep his eyes open. I think I have finally found someone more picky about idiosyncracies than I. Note that I just used the correct prounoun "I" instead of "me" here because ALW is British, and I'm feeling a little self-conscious about my grammer [grammar, I know] and enunciation. Because ALW will probably be checking out my blog tomorrow.
Did ALW just say that Carly has a big chest? Oh no he din't. I think he said she has a "big chest voice." I didn't like her song, but I feel like everyone else in the world is going to love it. I do like her blouse. See? I nice! Nicey nice!
David Cook revealed that he has a musical theatre background. Wow. Wouldn't have guessed that. Wouldn't have guessed that ALW could write such a "sen-soo-ul" song, either.
Well, who are YOU voting for? I am not super motivated to vote for anyone. Who do you think will be cut? I think Brooke is done.
And did you notice in the closing that ALW looked just like Mike Meyers?
And now I must remove my little dog who has been sitting here beside me wrapped up in a towel after her bath this whole time go and blow dry her. She has been so patient, looking out of her towel like ET and critiquing the AI contestants. She did NOT appreciate that CATS song. At all. Notice how disapproving she looks here. Sort of like Dramatic Prairie Dog doing AI.
