Alrighty, people, we're down to three American Idol finalists. Not that you could tell with the lack of anything new.
Here's my quick take (because it's obvious how shorter my critique's are getting as time goes by):
1st song: Beautiful. He was wise to do part of it a capella --that was cool! And he was spot on, pitch wise (he usually is).
2nd song: Simon was right on. David looked uncomfortable. When he said "my boo" I thought he said "your boob" and I was totally mortified! Yeah, this song was weird for him. Did not work.
3rd song: I LOVE THIS SONG. "Longer" has been one of my favorite songs since I was a small child, because it was one of my mother's favorite songs (it's from the 60's? 70's?) and I played it on the piano a lot (as a duet with my mom, too). I thought David did a good job, but if he had sung it straight (not so many runs), it would have been much prettier. I totally see why the producers picked it.
1st song: Fun and hip. But she smiles too much.
2nd song: Not too bad, but I'm tired of the sexy thing she has going on (especially since that's all she's working on --why doesn't she work on her smiling?).
3rd song: Better than the 2nd song, but not enough to push her into the finals. She was just "blah" to me this week.
1st song: AWESOME! Very impressed with his take on an old classic (sung by a female, no less!).
2nd song: Too copyish, and way out of tune. Hello, David! Sing in tune! It was pretty bad, people. Pretty bad.
3rd song: Very, very good. But it was too copyish for me, again. I kept thinking about Steven Tyler and his awesome microphone antics while David was singing...however, David was way better on his 2nd song!
Who should be voted off?
Who will be voted off?
Who cares at this point.
Who will win?
For 23 weeks, I've been saying that David Archuleta was going to win this entire thing. But you know what? David Cook might just beat him based on tonight. It's kind of close, people. Too close. Of course, Sayesha could stay, and then all my theories are shot...
