American Idol Top 9

I'm baaaaack!

Please excuse Rachel @ Must Share... She was on VACATION and could not be in attendance to the American Idol blog carnival for the past two weeks. Thank you for understanding.

I did watch the majority of both shows, and was very excited to see Paige go and very sad to see Didi go... But I won't miss the judges destroying her self-esteem bit by bit.


He is strong enough vocally, that I think he could sing the song from the Meow Mix commercial and be fine. I agree with the judges, though. Pretty old and boring.


She is another super strong vocal performance, but it wasn't more interesting than my computer. I wasn't as wowed as the judges.


I think he changed it up just enough. I like what he did with it, but I'd have to agree with Randy. Slightly corny. But I'll tell you what. I want to know what product is in his hair. I want to go to there.


I'm surprisingly blown away by this. I still wish Michael would drink Humble Potion #9, but brotha can sing, for sure. This is the first performance that has drawn me in. Props, Michael.

Side Note: I hate hate HATE when the singer tries to punch the air, or jump or swing their arms in time with the last drumbeat, or guitar I don't know... whatever. Okay, I don't even know how to put words to this, but I know that I know that you know. A. They nearly always fail. B. Even when they don't, it's still stupid. C. A.N.N.O.Y.I.N.G.


Love that they call her Momma Sox. Too cute. Is it me or this not her strongest vocal? I love what she's done with the song and in spite of it not being her absolute best, it's refreshing to see her growing and improving through out this competition. I definitely see her getting better and better as time goes by. Honestly, I didn't think that was even possible!


I'm kind of impressed tonight. So far, I think he's sounding great. Again, I'm no pitch master, but sounds good to me! I like the straight hair, too. Kind of a sudden and undramatic ending. I feel like he could have made more of a statement.

Oh Simon, God Bless you for that nice speech. Tim will be floating home tonight smilin' wide!


Um, wow. That was captivating. I'm pretty sure I've never heard that song before, but I want to hear it again. That was totally brill, yo. And I have to agree with the angelic comment someone made.


I'm having the strangest visual... That skirt reminds me of a peacocks tail, and I'm just waiting for the song to pick up in tempo, her to stand up and the skirt to turn into a true peacocks tail. And there you have it. I'm either really tired or that was very boring. I think it's the boring one. Yes, Randy. Super sleepy.


YES!! I was totally going to type that I think he would ROCK Hey Jude. Homeboy read my mind!!!! Hmm... Except for the part about rockin' it. Ohmyword at the bag pipes! This is so strange. Oh, Lee. This was not what I had in mind. In my opinion, he should have broke into the more rockin' style way earlier. The slow parts were rough, and while his gravelly tone is growing on me, it's still just a little too much. The beginning was just... Ah! I'm trying to like him, but this was a big disappointment for me. SOOOOO interested to hear what the judges say. Oh Ellen, you are hilarious! The parade comment. Yes, totally. Thank you, Simon, for saying what everyone in the room (and in rooms all around the country) were thinking. When they panned to the audience when the bagpiper who got separated from his parade came out, no one looked impressed... Weird.

Bottom 3... Katie, Tim and Andrew? No idea, really. Maybe they'll vote the bagpiper off.

And oh sweet mercy did you see Lee and the bagpiper both do the last note thing?!?! Unbelievable. And I hope that this is the last time I ever have to use the word bagpiper in an American Idol post. Seriously.

See what everyone else is saying at Boomama.


  1. Haha...bagpiper. It is a weird word. And definitely was a weird AI moment!

  2. Yea, the bag pipe was a weird moment, totally out of the blue for me too but I really like Lee.

  3. Oh, the bagpipe was so strange, but good for Lee for making the most of his time on AI, right?

    I'm with you on Andrew's hair! He has such...height!
