Motown Week

Megan: D Sounded terrible, doesn't move well, sucked overall.
Anoop: D Too slow, lame, pitchy falsetto, not good dood.
Mike S: C- OK but below par, not a winner, lounge act feel.
Lil Rounds: C- Weird hair, yelling, did not meet expectations.
Adam: A+ Wow! Could have won the whole thing with this performance! Looked like Kurt Russell with the Elvis hairdo. Incredible vocal range. Best performance of season 8.
Danny G: B+ OK but nothing special, seemed too rushed.

American Idolization

Americano Idolizer Notations
from March 17, 2009'er
Happy Saint Patricia's Day

For the Top Eleven Big Show, here is a little different format for the show notes. Jumping right into the Conclusion Phase which is sprinkled with some details.

Those singers who could all be immediately flushed from the finalists:

Michael Sarver: Showed he can memorize well, but lacking any star quality.
Allison Irahetta: Strainy sound of her voice is irritating plus looks freakish.
Scott from Scottsdale: End of the road time for a nice guy but not going to win.
Adam Ant Iguana Boy George: If it's a love/hate thing, then sorry, but a slow weird evil Egyptian version of Ring of Fire is not going to be on a CD under my Christmas Tree.

Either great performances tonight, or have enough to be in smaller subset of finalists:

Kris Allen: Really sounded good with a slower ballet. Sang well in what IS a singing competition.
Little Rounds: Country music not her thang but did well enough to still impress.
Alexis Grace: Song choice (Jolene) was poor but still a strong favorite from this perspective.
Daniel Go-Key: Strong great emotional performance. He still has it and affects the listener.
Anooooop: Biggest surprise of the eve. Deserves to be in final smaller group.
Megan Joy: Nice retro look and feel. For being quite sick, she deserves to go on.
Matt Giraud: Following four strong performance, he definitely made it five strong performances.
