Idol Thoughts

I have been debating blogging about Idol seasons for a couple of seasons now.  Season 8 I had this blog but wasn’t blogging very often, Season 9 there was no one that really kept me all that interested enough to actually blog about.  Season 10 – I still don’t have anyone that I feel “omg they HAVE to win!” about but I do have a lot of thoughts so we’ll see if this ends up being a regular feature or just me posting when I need to vent haha

Last night we got to see the Top 24.  They made it even, 12 boys 12 girls – but based on the girls who went through I have to say that for the most part they are weak.  As far as the boys – well, I would have switched out a few of the jerks for a couple of the guys that I didn’t think should go home (Carson, Jacee, to name a couple)

I like Brett, Casey, Paul, Stephano, Robbie and Tim. I hope it is those 6 who make it into the top 12. I can not stand James Durbin (Lambert 2.0), Scotty McCreery appears to be a one trick pony, Jordan and Clint come across as bullies from group week (I don’t care how well you can sing – I can’t really support you if I don’t think you are at least a little bit nice!) and Jacob and Jovany I can really go either way with.

As far as the girls – the only ones I really remember is Thia and Lauren A.  I am hoping some of them really wow me on Wednesday!  Most of the girls they showed I did not remember and a lot of the performance clips they showed I was not all that impressed with.  I really hope they step it up now that we are voting for them.

I also hope that Lauren A – “the chosen one” can live up to her hype.  Last season there was a lot of hype over Andrew Garcia and Katie Stevens – but once they made it to the voting rounds they didn’t seem to be quite as great as they were in the clips from Hollywood.  I am hoping that the same thing doesn’t happen again (for any of the contestants!)

I am glad that they sent home Chris Medina. Based on his singing alone (this IS a singing competition) he was not meant to be there.  Obviously he is a super awesome and wonderful guy, based on his sob story – but the competition just was not for him and I would not have been happy if they let him through because of his story alone.

It has also been announced that you can now vote online – provided you have a valid facebook account – up to 50 times after the performances.  I am not sure how I like this idea.  On the plus side, it will probably be easier to vote online than on the phone… but I feel like it is just a ploy to cushion the vote numbers.  AT&T; users will also be allowed unlimited text votes, as usual. (I have AT&T; but only a 200 text plan so I don’t think that I will be texting any votes this season!)

Rock N Roll Fridays – Aerosmith

1. Dream On “Every time that I look in the mirror, All these lines in my face getting clearer. The past is gone. It went by like dusk to dawn. Isn’t that the way. Everybody’s got their dues in life to pay” Do you pay dues or something such as a membership in a union, church, civic group, gang, etc?
I have a membership to The Elongated Collectors. That is about it lol

2. Angel “Without your love, I’m nothing but a beggar. Without your love, a dog without a bone…” What is your favorite dog breed?I am not a big dog person, I like Yorkies.

3. Sweet Emotion “You stand in the front just a shakin your ass. I’ll take you backstage you can drink from my glass…” Have you ever been backstage at a concert to meet the band? If not, what band would you like to meet backstage?
Yes I have – for Hanson a couple of times, Danny Gokey last week was backstage though I think technically we were under the stage.. and probably a few others as well I can’t think of off hand.  Meet and Greets aren’t always “backstage” sometimes they are just in a random room at the venue so I am not sure what “counts” for this question.

4. Walk This Way “So I took a big chance at the high school dance with a missy who was ready to play…” What was the first song you ever danced to at a school dance?
Oh I don’t know! I know Celine Dion’s “Because You Loved Me” and Michael Jackson’s “You Are Not Alone” were pretty popular in middle school when I went to dances. So perhaps it was one of those.. although usually it started with fast songs and only a couple slow songs were in the mix.

5. Crazy “You’re packin up your stuff and talkin like it’s tough. And tryin to tell me that it’s time to go, yeah. But I know you ain’t wearin nothing underneath that overcoat. And it’s all a show, yeah.” Ever worn your PJs in public?
Of course!

6. Cryin “I was cryin when I met you. Now I’m tryin to forget you. Your love is sweet misery.” What is the worst film you went to see in the past 5 years?I don’t see many films in the theaters, so usually I do not see anything horrible, I usually pick and choose and I know it will be something I like that I am going to see.  However, things I stream on Netflix or rent from Netflix would be a completely different story.  Unfortunately, my memory SUCKS (especially for things I don’t like, I try to push them out of memory) so I can’t recall any off hand – plus for the past several months I have pretty much exclusively been streaming TV shows.

7. Draw The Line “Checkmate honey beat you at your own damn game. No dice honey I’m livin on the astral plane. Feet’s on the ground and your head’s goin down the drain. Oh heads I win tails you lose….” What is your favorite board game?
Monopoly.  I actually had an online version back in the early 00s and I made “boyband monopoly” out of the custom settings and it was pretty freaking awesome. Instead of places you’d buy boyband members and the prices were based on how much I liked them so my least fave members were the cheaper spots.  The best part was I could play by myself against the computer so I wouldn’t have to beg anyone to play with me!

8. Big Ten Inch Record “My girl don’t go for smoking, and liquor just makes her flinch. Seems she’ll go for nuthin, ‘cept for my big ten inch… Record of a band that plays the blues…” What was your favorite record (or CD) when you were 18 years old?
When I was 18 hmm.. I was a freshman in college so I would say it was probably whatever Christina Aguilera released that year – stripped?  I think we were in a bit of a Hanson drought and NSYNC was pretty much done.. Justin had just started going solo (blech)

9. Janie’s Got A Gun “It’s Janies last IOU She had to take him down easy and put a bullet in his brain…” What was the last IOU written for that you either gave or received?
My mom and I always are owing each other money for something or another.

10. Jaded “My my baby blue. Yeah I’ve been thinkin bout you. My my baby blue, yeah you’re so jaded. And I’m the one that jaded you” Are you jaded on a subject or issue?
Yeah, probably.

11. I Don’t Want to Miss A Thing “I don’t wanna close my eyes. I don’t wanna fall asleep cause I’d miss you baby And I don’t wanna miss a thing….” What was the last event that you missed that you regret?
Not going to see Miranda Cosgrove and Greyson Chance when they were in town at the beginning of the month.  I think that was the most recent thing.

12. Rag Doll “Yes I’m movin, I’m really movin. Sloe Gin fizzy, do it til you’re dizzy. Give it all you got until your put out of your misery” What is the most miserable thing that happened to you recently?
Freezing my butt off two days in a row HAS to be it lol that was miserable and I am still not truly warm! 😉
