American Idol Chat: Honestly, I missed the first two performers. I came in when the judges were blasting my girl, Jordan. Was she really that bad? I thought her hair was crazy and fun and it cracks me up how much she towers over Ryan! Makes me laugh every time.
Blake - What?! Was that rock and roll? Or was that some guy sounding like a record? Do the 11-year-olds know what a record is? Did mama have to tell them that was something from "back in the day?" I am agreeing with Simon - 1/2 would love it and 1/2 would hate it. Hated it. Or maybe I just didn't get it.
LaKisha - She was rocking! I loved her singing "This Ain't a Love Song!" I thought she was great. What up with the outfit? Ok.
Melinda - For somebody who thinks that they can't sing rock-n-roll - she was kicking it! She portrayed tough and edgy - a Pat Benetar - and portrayed it well. She's great and her voice is really incredible.
I have to mention that two of my co-workers that love American Idol and watch it every year are crazy about Blake. One of them asked me if I would buy Melinda's CD. I have to say that I haven't bought any AI CD's. Obviously, I'm not their target audience. I do love Kelly Clarkson, Clay Aiken, and Carrie Underwood but, never bought anything of theirs. I did buy the DreamGirls CD and I've played it to death - Jennifer Hudson has the most wonderful voice. But I do love me a Broadway musical.
