Top 6 – Andrew Lloyd Webber Night – My thoughts…

Prior to watching: I am definitely worried about this night. My thought is that they should have done an all-encompassing Broadway night and less specific. I think ALW is dated and too old-fashioned. I hope that American doesn’t get bored with the irrelevant music of the night (oh, im so funny).


Andrew Lloyd Webber scares me. I am trying to think of what animal he looks like. HELP!

It should be interesting to see if the contestants can bring “WORDS WORDS WORDS”.


More to come…

Syesha Mercado — “One Rock & Roll Too Many” from Starlight Express

Syesha is so cute! I think that she wants me; not sure though. Syesha needs to BRING THE HOUSE DOWN!!!

Here goes. Holy crap, how hot is she? She has such a great voice and is so utterly comfortable on the stage. I must say that I truly enjoyed that song even though I have never heard it before. Apparently roller skating musicals are not my thing.

Randy digs. Paula loves. Simon is turned on. AMERICA needs to vote. She is my favorite! She needs the votes. I keep getting through on her line! Not good!

Jason Castro — “Memory” from Cats

Rumor has it that Jason is sick. Then he is “sick” for choosing a ridiculous song. Lets see how this pans out for Mr. Stoner.

Mr. Castro is dying slowly. I have never understood the love for this song. It frankly makes me want to vomit. Jason is talking most of the song, he has a huge fan base though, so it probably doesn’t even matter what he does. I wasn’t a fan tonight.

Randy was hating (smart man). Paula is spinning his mess into a positive. Oh, and Randy thinks he is pretty. Simon has it right so far tonight. I hated when my parents made me sing in front of people. 🙂

Brooke White — “You Must Love Me” from the film adaptation of “Evita”

It is now time for the talking horse. Vocally, she shouldn’t be on the show anymore. Andrew Lloyd Webber tells it like it is. “She has no idea what she is saying”

So, Ms White forgets her lyrics! And then, makes them starts all over again. Vote her off! Can we?!! PLEASE?!

So when she goes on. She means none of the lyrics and shakes through the whole time. Maybe the tears are from knowing she screwed up. Carole King, it is time to go home. Thank you Paula for mentioning the starting and stopping. Simon didn’t mind that she stopped. Brooke is trying not to talk to much. She must have been reading my blog.

David Archuleta — “Think of Me” from Phantom of the Opera

ALW tells him to open his eyes. I agree. He didn’t mention the the lip licking though.

David rearranged the song. He made Think of Me sound like a AC/Pop song. I just can’t get over how effortlessly this boy sings. I actually liked the song, but wasn’t blown away.

Randy thinks David A. is the one to beat. Paula thinks he was perfect. Simon thinks it was one of the weakest performances. Maybe it will end up David – David finale.

Carly Smithson — “Jesus Christ Superstar”

First off, SLEEVES! Secondly, DRESS! She’s listening. Now she just needs some Lucky Charms and head on back with her Irish Eyes.

Will Carly save herself finally? Why don’t I like this girls voice? I might be one of the few people in America that thinks she is “eh”. She definitely rocked it out and had a little personality in this number. I wish I could like this former flop.

Randy thinks she was good (not the best). Paula loved it with her man hands. Simon thought it was one of best of the night.

David Cook — “Music of the Night” from Phantom of the Opera

Before watching, this could potentially be very good. Cook needs a hat. Do you think ALW likes being called LORD? I would think that would get annoying; maybe call him GOD or something.

David Cook, I am not sure what to make of you. Some of the song was really good, the other parts were eh, then the end you were rocker again. Lost? Hmmm. You will be just fine after that performance.

Judges for the most part liked him.

My thoughts for bottom three (this is too hard): Jason Castro, Brooke White, Carly Smithson (or my girl, Syesha but I am thinking positive).

I think Syesha might go home since I was able to get through so many times. I am so sad. 😦

    I practically yelled at the screen when I heard David A.’s version of “Think of Me.” The song went from this amazing operatic masterpiece (ok, masterpiece is a little much, but i like the word.) featuring a young, beautiful soprano to a “see ya when I get back from tour” song, sung by some beach bumb, Jack Johnson wanna be. Sure it was “effortless” but it was also boring and he needs to go back to the junior high choir he ran away from.
    David Cook, however, is where it’s at! I can listen to his songs on repeat and not get bored. I want to flick my lighter on and sway back and forth. He looks into the camera at the right moment, doesn’t push his voice, yet goes for the big notes, and he looks so damn good while doing it. He will be one of the final two. It’s his competition who has yet to be determined.
    I’d rather be called god instead of lord. And technically his last name is hyphenated. So would it be Lord Lloyd-Webber? That can get messy!

    His title is hyphenated on this last name but he uses “Baron Lloyd-Webber” instead of the full title. His actual name is not hyphenated.

    I was just surprised to find out he’s been married three times…to women!

    David Cook has really grown on me.

    I liked David A when I first heard him but now every song sounds the same. He (or his dad probably) just thinks he’s so good he can sing any boring song no one knows. Do that when you’re famous. On AI, people want to hear you sing songs they know. I feel like they think they are teaching us (in their minds) what good music is and I’m not ready for a kid to teach me yet!

    Unfreakingbelievable! Jason and Brooke are no where near as talented as the rest!! The only reason Jason is still there is young girls think he’s cute and you know they can make those calls!

    I agree with you on Syesha. She totally brought the house down for me. Her moving about and relating to the conductor and guitarist really made her look like a seasoned performer, and one who is so confident! Her personality just shone brightly, and I personally feel that she can even start her own concert with this song as an opening! luckily she pulled through!
