Rock Star INXS / Big Brother thoughts....

I'll admit it... at first, the whole idea of a show that was trying to find a singer for INXS did not thrill me. I was like "INXS... WTF?" But I read people's blogs and I was hearing great things about the show... So I decided to take a look... I have become addicted! So I figured I'd give you my thoughts on last night's performances.... Suzie R.E.M.s Losing My Religion Suzie started the night off by setting high marks for everyone else. I can't stand the song she did (I can't stand much REM actually), but she pulled it off much better than the original. Mig All Right Now by Free Mig's style reminds me of early Bowie/Iggy Pop type bans... And he makes me wonder if Dave is a little queer (Dave keeps telling him to take more clothes off). He pulled this off quite well. J.D. Seals Crazy JD is an idiot. I hate people like him. Big ego and not much to back it up. I haven't been impressed by him yet... I have no clue why the judges seem to be. I thought this pretty much sucked (but I have no clue what the original sounded like). Jessica Come As You Are Jessica looked bored. She says that she poured all her emotion into the song, but if that was all she has... Ummmmm... Why is she here? Jordis Eric Claptons Layla Jordis is hot. She is the best on the show in my opinion. She could come out and sing the Oscar Mayer Weiner song and still have everyone groveling at her feet. She's my choice to win this, but is winning and having to play with INXS really winning? Brandon All Over Now by the Rolling Stones Brandon did a killer job with this song. BUT- This is him... he doesn't have much else. He looks like a junkie to me... I've known far too many people that have that look, and i can't say it gives me great feelings. Marty The Killers Mr. Brightside Marty decided to go unplugged with this, and it paid off bigtime. This David Spade lookalike is the most talented of the guys in my opinion... He will go far. Best performance of the night. Doobie Brothers Long Train Runnin I loved this. My wife says it's cuz she has such a raspy voice (Serious turn on for me). Maybe that's it... But I also liked the energy she put into it... Here running around, her band interaction, her working the crowd... She's strong with her stage presence. Ty Bob Marley - No Woman No Cry Ty did great. Good choice of songs for him... I'm not sure that I was trippin like the band was, but it was good. He could make it as a Reggae singer. There ya go... Here's my bottom three predictions: J.D. Jessica #3 is a problem, but I'll say Suzie (just because she went first- the most forgettable slot) +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Last night on Big Brother, The 'friendship' got their ass handed to them when they were too stupid to figure out the veto competition. James walked away with the veto and royally screwed their plans to evict him. I was cracking up. So Ivette is up on the block with Sarah... And the seeds have been planted to evict Ivette! Hopefully these seeds will sprout into something! Wouldn't it be great to see Ivette go home and Kaysar come back in the same night? How perfect would that be?

Since Rockstar INXS moved it's Monday show to VH1 it screwed by Tivo recording up and it didn't record last night's episode. Thanks for the update. I love Jordis but does anyone think they will pick a chick?

I think for the first time in the history of our blogs, we agree on something. I totally agree with all of your assessments on every singer. And I said it on my blog last week - if they don't pick Jordis, its because they don't want a chick singer. She rocks.

AHahahaha...if only! That would be too perfect, I'm not that lucky I think they are just showing us clips of everyone talking sh*t about Ivette to throw us off, I am willing to bet that Sarah is going home. I got their number over there at BB...I know how they try to manipulate everyone...but I'm too smart for them :) ahahaha Last chance to vote for Kaysar!

Indigo said...

That would be sooooooooo not perfect. I can't stand James. He drives me crazy!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHH!!! I hope they vote off Sarah, and that Kaysar comes back.

I haven't watched any of this...it looked like a train wreck about to happen, though now I kind of wish I'd peeked in.

And congrats on being Michele's site of the day!

I never understood what Big Brother is all about, and have not watched that INXS show but once. I really have the summertime re~run blues. I miss my Arrested Development...By the way, Michele sent me too =)

Hi, Michele sent me.

I was watching Rockstar last night, first time I'd actually seen it and I wasn't impressed. That JD chap was singing and I thought he was crap. So I didn't watch anymore. I'll just wait until the final 3 or 4 are left, it should increase in quality then.

Hello Guppyman, Michele sent me!

For that show I still haven't gotten past the "INXS...WTF?" page, which is why I haven't watched it yet.

Angie said...

My feelings exactly on the RockStar singers...JD needs to go home. His head is too big to go on much further. Jordis rocks my socks and like someone else said, if she doesn't win, it is only because they don't really want a girl in the band.

BB6! I am LOVING it right now. I hope they actually get smart and get rid of Ivette..though I won't hold my breath. BUT..if Kaysar isn't the one to walk back in to the house...grrrr...

Nancy said...

I love this show...

I agree w. everything you said. Except, I can't stand Brandon and was glad to see him go.

I wanna be Jordis when I grow up ...
