American Idol: Something to talk about

by guest bloggers Becky and Bethany

Last night on American Idol, Sanjaya sang “Something to Talk About,” by Bonnie Raitt, in hopes that people everywhere would keep on talking about him. Well, people are talking, just not about him.

People are talking about the spectacular performance from 17- year-old Jordin Sparks, who made Martina McBride proud by doing a heavenly version of “Broken Wing.” We are with Simon on this one, Jordin just might take it all the way and win Idol. And there really isn’t any reason why she shouldn’t. She’s beautiful, funny, down to earth, and she can sing. Imagine that, an American-Idol-wanna-be with all the right stuff. Go Jordin!

Phil Stacy also brought his game up last night. His rendition of “Where the Black Top Ends,” by Keith Urban, was the right song for him. He sang it with heart, and he sang it well. Now we realize that in the beginning we weren’t big Phil Stacy fans, but now we hope he can last at least one more week.

Melinda sang a song that we’ve never heard before, but it didn’t matter. As always, her performance was outstanding.

Now for the low points: If you can believe it, Lakisha was one of the low points for us. She chose “Jesus Take the Wheel,” by Carrie Underwood. Frankly, we think she tried to out sing Carrie. She was too loud, and the song was a disaster. There isn’t any chance of her going home tonight, though.

Chris Richardson’s performance was poor, to say the least. As Randy put it, he was “pitchy.” He may go home tonight.

Blake did OK. It wasn’t our favorite Blake performance, though. It seems like he keeps picking songs that have basically the same melody. But he won’t be going home either. The girls love him.

I guess we should at least make a mention of Sanjaya’s performance. In short, it stunk. Bonnie Raitt probably choked when he said he was going to try and make her proud. And as for his choice of wardrobe this week, with his cute bandana, curly locks, and gold hoop earrings, he could actually model for the Mary Kate and Ashley line at Wal-Mart.

We’ll be back tomorrow folks with another Elimination Night recap!

I was hoping that Bonnie Raitt would rush the stage and hit Sanjaya in the face with a beer bottle. Seriously. And the wardrobe? Not sure why he felt the need to dress like the elder sister from One Day at a Time. He's really getting under my skin these days (if you couldn't tell).

Jordin is awesome. She's my favorite, by far. Melinda is good, but she's a pro. Jordin is an amateur, which makes her a more deserving Idol, I think.

Phil had a good night, but he still looks like Jack from A Nightmare Before Christmas. That's unforgivable.

Bring back Gina Glocksen!

Tim, our thoughts EXACTLY! Lets hope that Jordin can win it all, she is the most deserving!

What is with Sanjaya? WHo is giving this kid style advise? They should be hit over the head.
