    I think tonight is Rock and Roll Hall of Fame night.

    David Cook - 1-866-IDOLS-01 and 05 - “Hungry Like the Wolf” by Duran Duran - Song 1: He's my favorite to win, I thought it was good but not his best for sure.. Song 2: “Baba O’Reilly” by the Who - I liked it but thought he could have picked a better choice of song.

    Syesha Mercado - 1-866-IDOLS-02 and 06 - “Proud Mary” by Ike and Tina Turner - Song 1: Mmmm once again love the straight hair, so hot.. She is my 2nd favorite. Don't really like baby David or bong boy. Love the legs as far as the performance goes it was okay.. Not her best either but good enough.. Song 2: “A Change is Gonna Come” by Sam Cooke - I thought it was really good but Randy disagrees. Paula and Simon agree with me.

    Jason Castro - 1-866-IDOLS-03 and 07 - “I Shot the Sherrif” by Bob Marley - Song 1 Hmmm Bob Marley... the apple doesn't fall from the tree. Oh my good God! HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! When Paula doesn't like it your in trouble.. Simon I agree 110%. Please eliminate this kid! Please parents take away your teen daughters phone privileges tonight! Song 2: “Mr. Tambourine Man” By Bob Dylan.... Uhhh did he flub the lyrics or is that just a Dylan thing? Still horrid just not as horrible as the last. Once again as a PSA parents please take away your teenage childrens phone priveleges for the next couple hours. Jason pack your bags!

    David Archuleta - 1-866-IDOLS-04 and 08 - “Stand By Me” By Ben E. King - Song 1: Well it was leaps and bounds better than dreadlocks but I just think Cook is better and so is Syesha. Song 2: “Love Me Tender” by Elvis - I thought he did good at this one. I think he was probably the best of the night.

    Order of good to bad.

    1. Archuleta
    2. Syesha
    3. Cook
    9,999,999. Pot guy.

    If the world is just Castro goes home in a big way.

    Did Syesha just flub the lyrics of Proud Mary? I could have sworn she sang, "...and I was worrying 'bout the way things might have been." Or am I hearing things?

    I'm confused. I'm 99% sure that Duran Duran isn't in the R & R HOF....

    Edit: Nevermind. Just rewound and realized they're picking from the list of 500 influential rock songs named by the HOF.

    Anyone have any issues with their sound? The vocals are at the right volume but it seems like the band volume is very low.

    Heh - I totally missed this as well. The whole promotion has been the hall of fame, not some list they put out. Lame. No wonder the song choices are worse than I'd expect.

    First round:
    • David Cook: meh. I agree with Randy, he said in his package that he'd take the song and modify it to make it his... then he did a very vanilla version of the song. It was just OK, nothing special.
    • Syesha: It was an "all frosting, very little cake" performance for me. There was lots of her having fun and performing on stage... but vocally, for me it was very uninteresting. Still, it was probably a bit better than David Cook, actually.
    • Jason Castro: Horrible. I wondered if he decided not to practice in the least or even learn the song, and he just kind of winged it. Bad.
    • David Archuleta: For all of you who kept telling Brooke to shut up, shut up, shut up... I want the same for David Archuleta. He just ANNOYS me to no end when he talks. That aside, he was clearly the best of round one... he did sing that song well.

    Second Round:
    • David Cook: Better song choice, much better, and better performed. I just wish he would've performed the song straight, and really rocked it out. The slow emo rock really didn't do it for me. Plus, if he had sung it straight, he might have had more time to get into more of the song.
    • Syesha: Did she just seriously compare her run on AI to the Civil Rights Movement? Seriously? In any case, I tuned out by the second verse, just wasn't particularly interesting to me.
    • Jason Castro: I was grudgingly somewhat with him until he just kicked into "ma-na-na-na-nah" during the first verse. Forget it - you phoned it in during the first performance, now you didn't bother learning this one? Leave. Now. Do not pass go, do not collect $200.
    • David Archuleta: He performed this like a church hymn, not a romantic ballad. Bleh.

    Castro was first song was awful, the second was better... but I'm an A&M alum and aggies are known for their maroon pride and that we stick together (they sent a mass email out to the study body and alumni).....(and they'll film a segment of him in College Station) so I will actually pick up the phone tonight and vote for him. Don't think it'll be enough.

    I'm glad someone else noticed this. I could barely hear the band throughout the entire night.

    Wow. You are going to vote for someone who MANGLED both of his songs tonight, who hasn't been within eyesight of being good for many weeks, just because of where he went to school?

    Sad. Doesn't say much for the student body at A&M.

    Choosing to respectfully ignore the above comments.

    I gave up on voting for Castro because the lines have been busy.

    I support someone when they earn my support, not because they buy membership in some club by where they went to school. Jason Castro has not earned my support. In fact, had he earned my support at one point, he seemingly drove my support away by clearly deciding not to bother preparing at all for one of the most important rounds of the competition.

    It's as mindless as the drivel that comes dribbling out of Paula's mouth on a weekly basis.

    So loyalty = voting for them even if they suck.
