Top 3 – American Idol – My Thoughts (Live)…

Before going into this and after reading the song list, I think that, based on song choices only, it is Syesha’s final night. Unless one of the Davids crap it up, she is gone. 😦

Once again, blogging live and all over the place…

David Archuleta – “And So it Goes” by Billy Joel

“I was excited. It’s a really pretty song.” Ha. Come on dude.

Ballsy. He sings most of the first verse accapella folks. Here come the violins. So far this song is a SNOREFEST. I should first say that Billy Joel bores the tears out of me anyway. To be fair, David Archuleta sounds great, but very Archuleta. If that makes any sense.

Judges aren’t surprised that he did well.

Syesha Mercado – “If I Ain’t Got You” By Alicia Keys

Syesha thinks she already knows how she is gonna do it. Lets go!

She looks fantastic. I think she should always have her hair straightened and long. Another boring song so far. She wakes up a little around the chorus. I think my problem with this song is that she has sung it on TV before (The One) and I never really liked the song before when Alicia Keys did.

But, have I mentioned how cute she is? Just wondering.

Overall, the judges like it. Then she just made it totally weird, “be myself, ya know?” (awkward shot of judges).

David Cook – “First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” by Roberta Flack

Roberta Flack should be an interesting choice. I think he might do it some justice. Although, usually this song bores me to tears.

The beginning seemed a bit rushed, but so far David Cook gets an A+ for this boring ditty. The shots of is mother (i think that is her) is somewhat touching. The song builds nicely to a David Cook-esque ending. I loved the last note, scream.

Wait. Was that not his mom? They showed his Dad. Okay, going back, it was her.

Randy liked it but not the style. Paula says David is her second favorite singer of that song. Simon, of course, said it was his favorite.


David Archuleta – “With You” by Chris Brown

Youthful sounding song as he puts it. This is just going to be weird. Oh man, what a screw up of the lyrics. You could see the look on his face. He was making up words then realized his lines no longer rhymed. Ha. Now I can’t even concentrate because this is my favorite Chris Brown song. Around the chorus he picks it up and sounds like Archuleta again. Lets see if the judges give him crap.

Randy doesn’t think it was the right choice of song. No mention of the botched lyrics. Paula thinks it was perfect. Simon is our only hope. Simon called him a wuss (in not so many words). AND its rigged because the judges did not mention his lyric screw up. COME ON!

Syesha Mercado – “Fever”

Chair dance. If its anything like Britney Spears and her STRONGER video I’ll love it. But our acting-Syesha is back. 🙂 This song is so tough to make your own and I am sure the judges will mention that. I think she sounds good once again and is using the stage. I am trying to not talk about her looks. **zips lips**

For some reason, the end of that song reminded me of Beyonce. I think B might have done that song in a movie before.

I think the judges were told not to compliment her very much. Randy said she sounded good. Paula thought it didn’t showcase “Syesha”. Simon called her lame. I guess I have to vote like crazy again. Ha.

David Cook – “Dare You to Move” by Switchfoot

First off, I have a friend who only thinks about making out to this song and so everytime I hear it, I think of her and laugh. 🙂

So far, I do not like how David Cook has started this song out. I know that it will build at the chorus though. And, of course, as predicted, it did. I still have to go with my thought that this is not his best vocal. In fact, I don’t think I liked it that much.

Randy liked the song choice but not the performance (I agree). Paula thought it was too short (not David’s fault). Simon said it was okay.


David Archuleta – “Longer” by Dan Fogelberg

Talk about old timer song. I think this song is way too old for Archuleta. Is it just me, or is this top three show boring as crap? I still find Archuleta’s vocal abilities amazing. Just think, he’s 17 now and is still growing and learning vocally. How talented will this kid be in 10 years?

That song was forgettable to me. Randy focuses on Archuleta being HOT HOT HOT. Ha. Paula thought it was lovely. Simon thinks the song was sung well, but the choice was horrible. Archuleta will be in the finals.

Syesha Mercado – “Hit Me Up” by Gia Farrell (from “Happy Feet”)

Oh, I am so scared about this song. Why this song? Huh?

Oh Hotness. Is this Syesha’s Beyonce moment? This song is so awkward. I really don’t know what to say.

Randy thought it was just okay. Paula doesn’t think its “Syesha” again and not good enough for finals. Simon liked it better than FEVER. Not a defining moment

David Cook – “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” by Aerosmith

I really don’t like this song to begin with. I think this was Aerosmith’s first #1 song though.

This will be another David Cook formula song. Start out light…build it up…rock the end. Shocking. And… I was right. It was just alright.

Randy thought it was alright. Paula says he is in the finals. Simon says he wins the night.

I think I am bored with this season. How sad.

    Syesha was an amazing singer!
