We are in the last phase of American Idol audition. Soon we are beginning to vote. The spoiler lists on Joe’s place and votefortheworst.com are becoming interesting. According to Joe’s place American Idol hasn’t even decided yet on their twenty four American Idol finalists. I find it odd because I thought we are going to get to vote soon. Either way I read on votefortheworst.com that the Semifinals will be pretaped which means that we will know ahead of time who was good and who failed to impress the judges and the audience. So watch out for spoilers at various American Idol sites.
Yesterdays group round was confusing and somehow pointless. It is really hard to recap the entire show because it went back and forward. Executive Producers added drama to those group weeks by telling the contestants they have to have at group of at least three people and a member in the group from day one and day two. This made it hard for the contestants because they obviously already had unofficially their group picked on the day they had off.
Either way I wanted Kris Allen back. Remember Kris Allen got the first time airtime when he sang with Matt Giraud, Justin Williams and India Morrison in White Chocolate :”I want you back”. Of course American Idol featured then Matt Giraud, the self proclaimed cat with seven life’s on American Idol. Well yesterday Robbie Rosen and Jordan Dorsey attempted the song too and well my favorite contestant Kris Allen did better but I appreciate Robbie Rosen making it another round in that season. Of course I don’t like Jordan Dorsey he is the contestant who made everyone audition to get in their group, set High standards and ended up ditching his group. But please compare the versions with each other.
I don’t really understand why most contestants chose Cee Lo yesterday. But now the song is growing on me even so I didn’t like it performed at the Grammies.
One of the contestants who auditioned for Jordan Dorsey was Scotty McCreary. I have to agree with comments over onvotefortheworst.com the guy might be a one-trick pony to say it a bit harsher. Can he sing other songs too? We have never heard him sing a different song. He has a unique voice Scotty had a hard time finding a group and it seemed like he was wondering around for most of the days. Jaycee Bordeaux who is the bigger version of Justin Bieber seemed like a really nice kid and he was willing to let Scotty perform with them only to be ditched later by his group. Scotty didn’t stand up for him at that time which may be understandable since Scotty was looking for quite a while for someone to take him. Jaycee Bordeaux never lost his great attitude and determination and ended up finding a group who would take him so late in the game. Of course he then forgot the lyrics because he didn’t even know the song but I am glad that the judges had Mercy with him and let him advance. Nice Kid!!! Ironically the song he sang was called:” Mercy” Scotty then made an honorable move telling the judges that Jaycee was one of the nicest people in Hollywood. (Paraphrasing) Once Scotty advanced Scotty cried and mentioned again the Jaycee situation for the reason of his tears.
I loved the Stage Moms. I think if my kids would be in Hollywood I would be one of them too. I was surprised that they all gotten along while coaching this kids. So many women on one spot often don’t’ work when a lot is at stake. I offer my deepest congratulations to them for getting along so everyone could advance . That was admirable in my opinion.
Chelsee Oaks, Rob Bolin and Jacquelyn Dunford formed a group. Jaquelyn boyfriend got cut a day earlier. Chelsee Oaks and Rob Bolin are a former couple. I do not understand why Bolin subjected himself to so much ridicule and a song and two ladies he doesn’t connect with anymore. I mean there were plenty of other people he could have been paired with. This leads me to believe that Bolin was probably encouraged by producers to stick with Chelsee for the story part at Hollywood week because I don’t find any reason for him to stick with the group knowing that he would be cut by staying. Well Idol had their story and Bolin was cut.
Tiffany Rios couldn’t find a group because she dissed other contestants the night before so Jessica Yance got out of her group to pair with Tiffany. They were allowed to sing even so they were only a pair but Randy Jackson stopped them mid song and both of them were cut from American Idol.
I want to point out that they mention Caleb Johnson advancing again. He really gets little airtime but I think this is going to be good because I liked him during the audition too where he only got a few seconds. We will see how far he is going to make it. (They only gave Idol winner Kris Allen a couple seconds of airtime until he made it in the top eleven) I have got to check the spoilers list a little closer to see if Caleb Johnson is listed.
There were other fillers in the two hours show but I think I covered the main stories. I just hope we get to go to the singing part soon and drop that drama already.
