AI Recap

If you don't watch AI, then I apologize. This post will bore you to tears. However, I was so entranced last night by the show. They have such a talented and diverse group of singers. Not one contestant is like another. So here is my  breakdown of how the night went.

1- Scotty
He is absolutely the cutest, sweetest, most precious kid on that stage. He makes me laugh, and is just a sweetheart. Too bad he's like ten years younger than me!
All photos in this post are from here.

He sang "Swingin" last night, and did a great job. I thought it was a little boring though. We are getting closer to the finale and contestants need to step it up. Much like the judges said, he played it safe. Love him though.

2- James Durbin

James sang a song "Uprising" by Muse and he killed it. He is so theatrical and is such a great performer! Whether he wins or loses, I think James will be successful in music.

3- Haley Reinhart
Haley is definitely talented, but something about her just gets on my nerves. Maybe it's because she reminds me of a former student. I just don't know what it is.
She sang Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" and did an amazing job. It would be hard to sing a song like Adele, but this gal did it. Great song and great job.

4- Jacob Lusk
There is something about this kids voice that is like nails on a chalkboard. It sounds nasaly or like he has a severe cold or something.

He sang "Dance with my Father". You could tell that it was an emotional song, which I liked. But again, I don't see how this kid is still around. Sorry, Jacob fans!

5-Casey Abrams
What is so great about this guy? He is a little funny. Entertaining? Maybe. But I don't think he is that talented vocally.

Maroon 5's "Harder to Breathe" was Casey's pick, and it was ok. Was it enough for Steven Tyler to go on a cursing rampage because he loved it so much? Nope.

6- Stefano Langone
He's a hottie machottie! I love his smile and his cockiness. But I just don't think he's one of the best singers.

He sang Ne-Yo's Closer, and yes, I think he did a good job. I loved seeing him dance around on the stage to make it more of a performance, but I think it's time for him to go. He's been around longer than he should have been.

7-Last, but certainly not least- Lauren Alaina
I've liked this southern chick from the beginning. Maybe it's because she is southern and seems like someone I would so get along with. Anywho-this gal has what it takes to win the whole shebang!

She sang Sara Evans (whom I absolutely love) "Born to Fly." I hate to even say this, but I thought it was just so-so. Lauren can do SO much better than just so-so. She has the talent, the voice, all of it. Let it out, girl. Show America what you can do!!!

What did you think of last night's show?

  1. James Durbin just makes me want to die. Like a poor man's Adam Lambert. I don't know why, he just rubs me the wrong way!
