It's still me!!! Just a new layout, thanks to Jennisa!
I have SO much going on right now that it's 12:22 AM and I'm just now getting to the couch to watch AI. I'll update more about the goings on in the Huse Household.
So, here goes nothing. Live blogging, here, folks.....well, live for me at least.
First off, I know y'all LOVE to hear me comment about Paula, but her outfit reminds me of a costume I wore in one of my first dance recitals. In 1985. I'll try my best not to get annoyed by her tonight. Or, at least not talk incessantly about it.
Ouch. I wonder if the judges can hear that her voice is about as flat as I was in 1985 (or 2005 for that matter). Not ONE note was in tune. That hurt.
And, did I just say I was flat? Yes, yes I did.
Sick or not, that was not good. Obviously, Simon is tone-deaf tonight. It WAS as bad as Randy said. Randy was right on.
Paula's gloves are LEATHER! (I know, I didn't even last one contestant. I can't stand it)
Aw, Happy birthday! You were a cute baby. And you make a cute girl now. What?
I've never heard this song. I'm sure glad he's got that guitar back, though. That's his place. Is it just me or does he pick a lot of songs that don't show much range at all? Not real exciting. I'll forget it.
Oh my goodness. That baby cry is FREAKIN' me out! Becs, I'm trying to love her.... and tonight she is kind of winning me over. She has a terrific voice, but somehow gets lost in the mix; a lot like that one girl did on season 5. I don't remember her name.
Syesha was spot on; vocally and perfomancely. Her best performance to date! (See, Scott...making me nervous, so I'm making up words. When in doubt, add an "ly.")
Do y'all realize that Chikezie doesn't actually have small teeth, he has a double upper lip. Check it out tomorrow night.
Even though he does a good job on this song, I didn't like it. Maybe it was the song choice. I found myself googling on the magic box instead of watching and listening.
Isn't it funny how the google has now become a verb?
Could her mom be any prettier!? And, does anyone else think she looks like Sheryl Crow?
She is great. Even though she totally slipped up in the beginning, her attitude is awesome! She is a terrific singer and will go so far. She has the look, the voice, the attitude, etc. I agree with the judges, though; the band could have stayed out of it.
Every step she takes....I'll be buying her cds.
Poor attempt at a play-on-words, I know that. I just realized that I don't say much about her. I like her a lot, though.
We Are the Champions? Eh - I'm not too pleased with this. He did a decent job, aside from some pitch problems here and there, but I really wasn't into it.
Randy disagrees with me. Maybe I should have watched him and not just listened. Very interesting. I totally don't feel it like the judges do. Maybe I'll watch it again. No, Carly is next. Anyone else feel like I do about this?
I thought I had curly hair. Wow, girl! And your mom...I see where you get your eyes. But, you still remind me of Amy Lee from Evanescence. Total Eclipse of the Heart. Why am I talking like Carly is reading my blog?
Interesting choice. It's a total karaoke song, but I'm sure she'll knock it out of the park. She still has one amazing voice, but I seriously just wasn't feeling it tonight, yo. Ending was out of place.
I wonder how long until Paula's contract runs out on the show.
Aww....he might be missing his prom for this. That is so....WHAT!? He was born in 1990!!!? Are you kidding me!? Is he going to sing "Baby Got Back?"
This is now, like, the tenth song I don't know. What was I doing between 1980 and 1990? I don't remember these songs at the roller rink! I guess he's doing a good job, though. I'm afraid he's getting lost in the mix....even though his smile makes me want to bake cookies. I don't know what that means. He'll be here next week.
I think I'm going to start using the word "ghastly." I'll pronounce it "cost-lay" like Simon. It's fun.
Kristy Lee Cook
She is on crack if she thinks she remembers being two. She remembers the videos, not the actual time of BEING two. Now, God Bless the USA.....very well-known song....could be good...could be bad. All I know is no matter who sings this song, it makes me cry. As y'all well know, the hubby is military as well are most of my friends' spouses. I have a number of friends who are deployed, so this just touches my heart.
But this is about Kristy. She is doing a good job. Not blowing me out of the water. She hasn't moved more than three feet on that stage. This song might actually keep her here this week, when really, I think she is one of the weaker singers.
All these moms are so beautiful. I don't think about my mom that often, but I do wonder what she would look like if she were here today. (random thought by Rachel)
Holy cow. This guy really takes risks with the arrangements of his songs. Had they not said what song he was singing, it would have taken me a while to figure it out. This was TERRIFIC!!! In my opinion, if he keeps pulling out songs like this, we are looking at the next American Idol!!! David, if you're reading.......I'd like to reserve a copy of your cd.
I just heard Randy's comment and I SWEAR I am writing this as I watch it. It's too crazy that Randy and I are thinking the same thing. I believe it. I love that Paula is after Randy, so I have time to type while she babbles.
Best performance: David Cook, of course!
Going home: Ramiele

Now, give me your thoughts. You know having comments in my inbox really makes me feel popular.
It's now 1:23am....time to go "ny ny" as Lorelai would say.
Huse. Out. (that was for you, Sarah)
And Dad, this signature is for you!
