OK, for those that follow me on Twitter, this might be boring but no need to reinvent the wheel! Here are my thoughts from last night. I will say in general, it was a very disappointing night. One main issue was the sound was terrible. You could hardly hear the band. Also, it seems nerves got the most of several of the girls. Because I’m lazy, I copied and pasted from Twitter and it goes in opposite performance order:
Katie – still not one of my favorites. not a good song choice. I just don’t see star power in her. Yes, she has a voice, but I think she needs to put a few years and experience on.
Love MamaSox! Love her honesty, her voice and song choice. She’s got it!
Siobhan – She definitely has a voice on her but I think she might belong on Broadway or something. I really felt like Siobhan had heard all the murmurings that she’s weird and was really not herself last night. If you’re weird, be weird, people. It’s better than being fake.
<3 Didi. She also reminds me a lot of Brooke White in looks and personality. Love, love, love her. She’s so easy to get behind. She has a great story, is down-to-earth, nice, talented, etc, etc. I think she could have done better but she stood out among the group tonight.
Michelle – I just have to turn on Alicia to hear that. Give me something different. This girl is gorgeous and her voice is great. To say that she’s a copy cat of Alicia Keys is a huge compliment. But like I said, there’s already one of her. I felt a little more like she was in a beauty pageant than American Idol.
I agree with the judges, Lacey is better than what she did but I liked it better than they did Man, I really wanted Lacey to do well. I think she has a unique voice and I love, love, love her look. She was just all over the place with that song.
Haeley – wasn’t perfect but it was unique and fun Haeley teeters on the annoying line for me. Sometimes she’s cute and unique and fun and sometimes she’s vain and it’s too affected.
Haven’t been a fan of Katelyn so far but I really liked her voice there. She came out of nowhere for me but I enjoyed it.
Yay for Lilly. Not her strongest, but I really like her! I want Lilly to do well. I think she’s down to earth, a hard worker and really, really talented. Once again, I think this was a bad song choice.
Janell – poor thing, I can see she’s nervous but the song was way too big for her. Yikes. Just yikes.
Ashley – felt like she was holding back a bit. some really pretty moments though. Ashley is gorgeous and comfortable on stage. I think she needed to let go a little.
Sorry, Paige, nothing stood out for me. Also, what’s wrong with the sound ?! I feel like Paige got the shaft a little. The sound was the worst at the beginning of the show and she may have sounded better if everything was working properly. That said, I felt it was a little boring anyway.
Favorites were Didi and Mamsox.
I think Paige and Janell are in trouble.
