American Idol- The Girls Rock!

I don't know if this will start to be a trend or not, but I have to blog about the girls tonight.

'Cause the ladies are rockin' the house!

Sorry Guys!

This is the part of AI that I like. I hate the auditions phase- too many hurt feelings, nasty remarks, and broken dreams. What can I say? I'm a softy.

Gina- Great song choice. I think this is her musical style. Love the red on her, too. Better vocals than last week.

Alaina- Better than last week. Vocals were off, but tough song. Brave to take on that song! Lots of energy.

Lakisha- (I'm a little partial because she is my favorite!) Oh my! Back up singers already?! You go, girl! OK. Midnight Train to Georgia? One of my favorite songs!!! I'm feelin' a little homesick... this lady has my vote!

Melinda- My other favorite. Great voice. Great smile. Fabulous.

Antonella- Tough song to sing. I think most of the contestants should stay away from Celine, Mariah or Whitney unless you are in the Top 5. Off tempo. Better than last week.

Jordin- Rocky start and difficult transitions. Still, a great singer with strong vocals. Beautiful dress. Not my favorite performance from her, but still one of my favorite contestants so far.

Stephanie- Difficult song to keep tempo. Hard to get into. Great voice and a lot of talent. Just needs to find her niche. One of the top 5.

Leslie- Soulful voice. I like her style. Needs a little fine tuning, but I like her sound.

Haley- Started out strong, wavered a little. Strong voice.

Sabrina- One of my favorite songs. A little off. Brave to take on this song! Strong voice but needs to vary volume.

My picks? Melinda and Lakisha are still my favorites. Here's the thing- There are some good voices and some phenomenal voices. Hard to compete. I think the ladies need to each find their own strength and go with it. Make it their own and fine tune their unique abilities.

I'm pretty sure the winner is going to be one of the ladies! Some of the best talent since Seasons 1 and 2.

I'm just watching it now, Antonella is on. I do like Melinda. She is such a humble character, and can she sing!

Lakisha is the one. She has got it goin' on! :)

Merci said...

Before last night, I said the same thing - that the overall winner would be a girl! But last night, I had a thought that maybe not. I thought the fellas did a much better job Tuesday night than the gals did last night. Can't wait to see the show tonight! Thanks for a great review!

I agree with just about everything you said :-) Lakisha and Melinda are showing themselves to be amazing performers. I also agree with merci that they guys were much better this week...but I think last night, The Girls Rocked!

I totally agree with you. I think the only one of the men who may give the girls some competition is Chris Sligh. At this point, I'd have a hard time choosing between him and Melinda. They're the two top contenders in my opinion.
