Sorry - the last couple weeks were so bad Idol wise I just couldn't even stand drawing them. But we're down to the final 12 now so it's time to kick it into gear.
Tonight we are honored to have a guest drawer, Gert!!! Gert is 6 and loves COLOR.
Idolt Does Rolling Stone Tonight.... now... LAST year this would have been one I was looking forward to. This year all I could think was that the thought of Aaron singing anything by the Stone frightened me.
So we're off. I follow Ryan Seacrest on Twitter. He tweeted today he was scared of the stairs. He handled them just fine.
I thought I would do a little Stone Logo here for you. Gert said "You draw lips really good Mommy!!"
Big Mike was up first. I gotta say it... he's too big for sticks. He sang nicely. And moved robotic ally. The judges agreed.
Really... the best part of Idol these days is the Kris Allen Ford commercials.
Didi.... I still kinda like her... and she picked a GREAT song for her.
All of tonight's performances were prefaced by interviews with contestants families. Casey's mom has a necklace with his picture in it. I think she has other kids.
I think they might need therapy.
Casey just annoys me. He's not that great a singer and he was doing this whole one handed guitar thing tonight and just... go home boy.
Gert was baffled why Casey had a girls name. How times have changed that Casey is now a default girls name. So she added a little descriptor to assist you.
Lacey... was boring. Honestly. It was a very nice song, but... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.. And ellen agreed with me.
Andrew.... Andrew Andrew Andrew... you had plaid on. That's your only saving grace this week. He also is a very nice singer, but there's just no pizazz!
Katie of course has HEARD of the Rolling Stones... sort of. She wore a fluffy dress and I always feel like she's auditioning for Glee when I watch her. Eh.
So far tonight most people have had some pitch problems....
Fozzie was enjoying the Stone as well. He kept jumping around during the show. See?
Tim.... Tim is a former cast member of Little House on the Prairie. Well... no he's not. But he's sporting some SERIOUS Almonzo hair. And I REALLY REALLY want to cut it. Oh... and he's another "Meh" singer.
Siobhan... sang the heck out of the song. And up til the last note was great, and then went for a power note that simply WASN'T there... and it was all screamy and screechy and the judges apparently didn't notice. I thought she was very Adam Lamberty... in that now she has to have this power screech somewhere in her songs. Sigh. Not again.
Lee is exactly the kind of singer I'm into these days... Male singer/songwriters with a little gravel in the voice. SO I loved him... I do wish he'd find just a smidge of glitter for his personality. And Lee... don't wear gray... it doesn't help.
I'm and old fuddy duddy and Paige wore gray shorts with black tight and gray boots... and I have no idea how she sang cause all I could do was look at that combo... ick.
Aaron tried to have a moment on the stairs. I think needing to shave should be a requirement for this show.
I had a note here that said "I'm Tired of Vampires"... cause they're everywhere and in everything and I'm over it. But the computer ate the sign and I didn't feel like recreating it.
And finally, in the pimp spot (oh I am SOOOOOOOOO surprised) Crystal... did another troubadour rendition of a song and it was good, but she's gotta come out of her shell a bit. And don't tell the world you weren't in the right "head space"
