American Idol - Top 6

So we're down to the final 6, and they're all good which makes it really fun to watch. I'm liking the tape I've seen so far of Andrew Lloyd Webber. Sounds like he's going to have interesting input. I didn't really do "live" blogging last week, but this week I'm doing it just like everyone who links up to BooMama does! I even wrote down my thoughts before the judges spoke so that I wouldn't be influenced. Here we go:

Syesha Mercado - “One Rock And Roll Too Many”

Great song choice. She looks great, sounds great, and really is showing her personality. Maybe her best performance since Hollywood week.

Jason Castro - “Memory”

Very brave choice. I'm liking it. Oh, I loved it, just loved it. And he wasn't even showing that beautiful smile as he sang it.

Brooke White - “You Must Love Me”

Good song choice. OUCH. I'm so embarrassed for her. I'm uncomfortable! Am I imagining it's
pitchy because I think she must be nervous or is that just her style? She's ending well, thank goodness.

David Archuleta - “Think Of Me”

Good advice from "Sir" about the eye thing. GREAT jacket-this is the best he's been dressed all season. He sounds great, of course. There's no denying David's talent, but it feels monotonous to me.

Carly Smithson - "All I Ask of You" turned “Jesus Christ Superstar”

Has anyone even been asked to change their song choice by the guest mentor? Surely no one has ever done it. I can't remember, but it's a good thing she did. WHAT a PERFECT CHOICE!!! Blowing me Away! Go Carly Go! I'm so happy for you-couldn't be more perfect. And the dress rocks.

David Cook - “Music Of The Night”

David, you had me @ slowly. He sounds made for the theater...chills...so different to hear him singing a slow song, but I like seeing this side of him that shows how good of a singer he really is. Weird last note.

Should go: Brooke

Will go: Brooke (sad she'll be singing "You Must Love Me" tomorrow night)

Best of the night: Carly!!!!

i did this in a nutshell so you should check it out. i agree about david a. - monotonous. THAT'S what my problem is wiht him. couldn't put a finger on it. and yes, sad as it is, brooke white needs to go. she'll be fine and get a recording contract. although she needs to be a jcrew model.

WOW -- I was shocked last night at the bottom two! I thought Brooke and Jason would be there. I thought Carly did an awesome job and was blown away that she was the one to leave! It's big fun to watch, though. SUCH DRAMA! :-) Have a great day.

Well, now that was a result I wasn't expecting! Woah! I thought for sure it was over for Brook - maybe she got some sympathy votes?
