Gina Goes Bye Bye

Gina says bye bye.  She clearly wasn't the best, but she was good.  You've got to like the genre that Gina Glocksen finds comfort in if you're going to appreciate her style.  Not too much to say here.  Sanjaya is still around, and we're really tiring of talking about it.  He should have been gone three weeks ago and ina certainly deserved to be here longer than Sanjata as did Chris, Brandon and everyone else who has left us. 


April 3, 2007

The Idols take to the stage after working with legend singer Tony Bennett.  Did Tony inspire the singers?  How about Sanyaja?  Can anyone inspire him?  Without going into all the hoopla, we think Phil Stacey will be leaving us this week, although we could be wrong, as we have been in the past.  His performance was flat, and Simon Cowell seemed to utter the same feelings.

Melinda Doolittle was phenomenal, as is to be expected by now.   A seasoned pro once again on stage.  Simon Cowell seemed a bit peeved by this as he even said that the judges like to be mean every so often.  Of course, we know it's only Simon who has the mean streak, and Paula Abdul - in an effort to keep her nice girl image - wouldn't find criticism if a singing dog took the stage. And while we weren't crazy about Chris Richardson's performance, surprisingly the judges seemed in awe of it.  The judges surprised us this week with praise for performances we thought were sub-par.  Along with Phil, we really weren't all that thrilled with Gina Glocksen's performance so she too might just be shown the door this week.  We'll see what happens.

It goes without saying that Lakisha Jones and Blake Lewis were spot on as was Jordin Sparks.  It seems that Jordin's improvement from week to week has easily lifted her into "elite" idol status with Lakisha and Melinda.

By far, we're looking at the four best Idols being Melinda Doolittle, Jordin Sparks, Lakisha Jones and Blake Lewis, in no particular order.  Look for these four to stay safe, with the last place performance being up in the air.  We'll be back tomorrow with more!
