    Last night's show, for me was the BOMB!

    As in Bored off My Butt!!! I don't know if I'm just fried on Idol or what, but none of them really did anything for me.

    I was wondering about Heejun's glasses, too, but when he tipped his head back, you could see the edge of the lense at the top of the frame. Must have been REALLY clean!

    Reed Grimm is closest to 'hometown' for me (Ellsworth WI is just across the border), but he gets worse and worse for me. Last night I didn't really care for at all.

    And all of the bending down to touch/shake hands with the pit is already old for me and just bugs me.

    I hope tonight is better.

    I'm surprised at how much I enjoyed Hallie Day.

    Wow, The judges and I mostly agreed on the women. I was thinking that the standouts for me tonight (my top 5) were

    Jen Hirsch -She was the first one that jumped out at me during Hollywood week.
    Skylar Laine - Loved that she chose a song by Faces and left it all on the Stage
    Holly Cavanaugh -Had moments in her song that were just great!
    Shannon McCrane - Strong performance and I remember watching her dad pitch.
    Jessica Sanchez - Started really weak tonight but then kicked it into gear.

    The judges and I do not agree on the men since the all mentioned Deandre and I did not like him last night.

    There will be some talented singers going home tomorrow. Some of the really good women did not bring their A game tonight when they really needed it.

    :thumbsdown: :rolleyes:

    I attended a show at the St Louis Riverport Amphitheatre in 2005 (2004?). We sat in the grass. Mostly college-age (my age) stoners in attendance.

    The venue was otherwise outstanding, the audio quality was perfect, and the musicians had more talent in their nails than most have in their entire bodies.

    I wish they had focused more on putting on a 'show' or 'production' rather than just jamming out on stage. And they didn't play "Ants Marching"! :thumbsdown:



    SO YEAH, I'VE BEEN TO A SHOW, BRO.

    I'm not sure what's going on but I usually love my Idol. I just haven't gotten into it yet this year as much as previous years. Maybe it will get better when they get down to the top 13. From watching portions of the guys and girls performances, the girls seem to be far better overall IMO.

    First of all, Bro? Really? :rolleyes:
    Second, one single show does not an expert of the crowd make you. Also sitting in the lawn is probably more indicative to random dbags that aren't really there for anything other than to get stoned.
    And they are a jam band live, that's what they do and that's why most people go.
    As for you not hearing Ants. Try 42 shows and only getting my favorite song ONCE! But yeah, a show with no Ants closer is a bummer.

    Now back to Idol chat!

    There are at the moment 4 girls at least who are better than any of the guys, Jen, Holly, Shannon and Jessica. I liked the last girl too, and one other. CRS, I'll have to watch tonight to see who I thought.

    Mrs. S. and I are going to start a new drinking game. You have a shot every time you hear the word "Adele". :)

    I thought the guys were way better than the girls but there still is only a marginal number of both that are worthy of going through.

    But this is Idol so I am sure the most talented will go tonight and the least talented albeit most popular will stay.

    That one girl was awful last night and the judges sugar coated it big time.

    It was interesting to note that the judges admitted that they were way too easy on the guys the first night.

    I'll start watching the eliminations tonight on at least a 1 hour delay. I am not sure how they can milk it for 2 hours.

    Maybe not a gazillion, but I like her (boobs :eek:) and don't like Brielle's (voice or mom :mad:).

    Well they are announcing America's top 10. Then the judges will be picking their wildcards. So yeah, easily able to milk 2 hours out of that.

    Well, true. It is American Idol. They could milk the introduction of the Judges for 2 hours if they tried.
