OK fine.... I decided to review the women's performances from last night's American Idol... (I was going to wait till the final 12 were picked, but... ) For the most part- last night was boring. The contestants really need to learn what they are playing for in the end.... They are trying to become a pop star in today's musical world... They aren't shooting for the retirement home crowd... You gotta appeal to teenie-boppers. So... how many of last night's performances did that? Yawn.... Katharine McPhee All in Love is Fair - Stevie Wonder Good voice, but... Zzzzzzzz..... Kinnik Sky Gretchen Wilson - Here for the Party Was Kinnik Sky a man at some point in her life? I'm just asking... Kinda like bad karaoke... Lisa Tucker Who's Lovin' You - Jackson Five I think she has the best voice in the competition... She needs to sing something more towards pop and leave this stuff behind. Melissa McGhee Reba McIntyre - Why Haven't I Heard From You Sexy raspy voice, nice chest, but she's scary looking. Heather Cox Mariah Carey - Hero This weeks lowest vote getter. Brenna Gethers Donna Summers - Last Dance Another great Vote For The Worst performance! She is so bad, but it's so funny to watch. I hope VFTW can keep her around for a long long time. (plus, I love seeing how upset she gets people) Paris Bennett Bette Midler - Wind Beneath My Wings Paris- another big voice that needs to let go of the past and join the modern era. Ayla Brown Celine Dion - I Want You to Need Me I may be alone- but I can't stand this girl. She's annoying, she's not now and will never be a pop star, she just grates on my nerves. She has a nice voice, but please America... put her out of her misery soon! Kellie Pickler Bonnie Raitt - Something to Talk About Kellie- I like the country girl thing... I love seeing the innocence- I just wish you'd figure out that the stage is larger than the little circle in the middle. If she learns to work the stage, she's got a big future in front of her. Mandisa Cry - Faith Hill Mandisa can sing. Boring song. She kind of made me think that I could see her leading a gospel choir... OK... stretch, yawn... wonder why I sat down to watch this.... My picks for going home tonight? Heather Cox Kinnik Sky There you have it... Tonight is the guys... let's hope that they have learned that you need to do something to grab attention- not put your audience to sleep.
