Nothing like a little controversy to stir up the most boring season of American Idol to date! I don’t think anyone is actually going to miss Jermaine Jones but getting publicly humiliated in front of national television was definitely for a much-needed ratings boost. I am not sure what is making this season so lack-luster. I think there are a few excellent contestants but between the judges ridiculous comments and possibly all the other great singing shows out there, Idol is loosing some of its steam.
There were certainly a few standouts last night. One of my favorites, who has been extremely consistent so far is Phillip Phillips. I love the tone to his voice and overall, is one of the more interesting people to watch on stage.
I also think the judges were completely wrong in their criticism of Jessica Sanchez. Although I didn’t love the song choice, she really knows how to sing and use the stage. If she is not in the finale at this point, I would be shocked.
I also loved Holly Cavanaugh. She took on a Celion Dion song which is nearly impossible to do, and actually made it work. For such a small girl, she has a huge voice and sings effortlessly. I have been impressed with her since the beginning.
The other contestant I enjoyed last night was Joshua Ledet. I haven’t always been a huge fan of his, but last night I thought he gave an exciting and fun performance.
The other contestants for the most part were pretty boring. I truly hope this season starts to pick up fast! I wonder if the judges will save someone tonight, or use it at a later date. Tonight Chris Daughtry & Demi Lovato will be performing!
