Anyone else watching? I wasn't wowed by any of the guys tonight.


MOD NOTE:

I have decided, unilaterally, that it is confusing to have the various AI seasons merged into one thread (Sorry AmySF
). Maybe after the season is over, I would be okay with merging this with the other threads, but for now, I want a separate thread.

WonderRandy,

Annoying AI freak...

I watched it...I wasn't wowed either. Although the last guy and the guy with the blond, stickie uppie hair were both my favs. Sorry, I don't know names yet...that comes a bit later on.

I voted for the last guy. I vowed to vote every week since I do not want another Taylor Hicks to win
. I was only semi-impressed with 3 out of the 12. The rest stunk. Wonder if it was just nerves / song selection.

I'm rooting for the fat guy with the bad poodle cut. I just want him to win so badly just 'cuz it would be so damn funny.

Yeah, he's pretty funny.

I, too, was completely underwhelmed by all of them.

I agree with you guys. There's one thing that really wows me, though, and that's Paula's behavior. Sometimes it seems to me like she's high or something.

I think the guy with the spikey hair sounds like Morrissey. I don't like Morrissey, but I like the spikey hair guy.

Yeah, I wasn't terribly impressed with the guys last nite, but I did think Blake (sticky-uppy guy) and Phil (bald dude) were pretty solid. And the Asian guy (AJ?) wasn't bad.

But compared to previous seasons, the quality of the perfomances for the first night of Semi-finals was pretty amazing. Even just last year we had kids like "Chicken Little" make it into the finals. The competition is much more serious this time...

I though Sanjaya (Indian Kid) and Sundance (Hairy Goatee Guy) sucked pretty hard. I wanted Sundance to do better. Like the Judges (
at the altar of Paula, Randy and Simon )
I expected more from him.

Most everyone else was forgettable.

I was thinking the same thing (maybe it's just the hair). I had to explain to my housemate who Morissey is...

I like Chris (Poodle Boy) too. I wasn't thrilled with his song, but I think he's got a great sense of humor. I think he REALLY pissed Simon off with his slam of El Divo...

Ok, favorite girls from last night's performance, in random order:

Stephanie

Sabrina

Lakisha

Jordin

Gina

I think they were excellent. And Melinda gets an honorable mention. The rest were pretty bad, IMO

Last night I voted for Lakisha. I thought she blew them all away. In general, though, the girls did much better than the guys.

It seems that all the white girls except Gina fell flat on their faces last night. I thought for sure that Simon was going to rip Gina a new one for singing a 30-year-old song, but his reaction surprised me.

Sorry to the lady who sang the Eric Carmen song, but she did not hit the big note. Sabrina looks like Barbara Streisand if she were a woman of color (which is a cool thing), Lakisha shouldn't even be there- she should be in the studio or on Broadway.

Yeah, the white girls did do crappy in comparison.

Nice to see somebody acknowledge it as something other than a Celine Dion song. Celine Dion was seven years old when that song was written.

Ha, I was kind of confused by the Celine references since I didn't know who had ever covered it. I figured someone would have, but always thought of the original. I think because Eric Carmen grew up near me. (but I was only 1 when the song came out.)

I was having a really hard time thinking that I was going to have anyone to root for this year...until Lakeisha hit the stage. Then I started with the goosebumps.

The boys are totally not impressive and I cant see how there could be a male winner this year.

AI season is my favorite!!
