American Idol 9 first week on stage

A LOT of people are so disappointed with the performances of AI’s Top 24, and I’m one of them.

I really expected a lot from them! But a lot of my early faves disappointed me.  And yes, Simon is extra mean this season, and IMO, Ellen is just doing okay.

So here’s my assessment of this week’s performance:

Disappointed with Ashley and Janell. Suicide it is  realmad
Haeley = Nightmare… Angela Martin deserves her spot!  skeptical

i LOVE Didi!!! love love love her voice… maybe next time she should pick something upbeat, but will still preserve that cool-sounding voice.

Siobhan is promising too 🙂

Todrick Hall – his version of since u’ve been gone is dsiturbing – 6/10
Aaron Kelly – he needs more energy when performing – 8/10
Jermaine Sellers – the next Adam Lambert?! Disappointed with his perf – 6/10
Tim Urban – weak voice, so stay low. – 6/10
Joe Munoz – LOVE the SONG. Haha! But his version is cool. Like it! – 9/10
Tyler Grady – Pitchy and Boring. I’m not diggin’ his style. – 6/10
Lee Dewyze – love that raspy voice, but I agree with the song choice. – that was not so good. – 8/10
John Park – Boring – 7/10
Michael Lynch – Not a fan!! parang saling-pusa lang sya – 6/10
Alex Lambert – love his voice too.. there’s something in that raspy voice. More energy too – 8/10
Casey James – the vibrato is good, but I’m still not satisfied. safe. – 8/10
Andrew Garcia – i honestly love the song choice… I think he did great 🙂 – 9/10



Janell Wheeler and Joe Munoz were booted out, disappointed with this result.

Angela Rodriguez and Tyler deserves to go, I’m happy with that 😛

Comments on TOP 7 Performance:

top 7 (with zac efron)

A bit disappointed with the only-2-judges commentary.. We need to hear Simon’s opinions!! arrgghh..

Allison Iraheta – I don’t wanna miss a thing
– the start of her song was a little boring, but she belt it out on the last part of the song. I think it was a good performance.

Anoop Desai – Everything I do.. I do for you
– great performance!! it was smooth and very heartfelt.. love it! he’s really great in ballads.. nice nice nice 🙂

Adam lambert – born to be wild
– for me, it was a frantic and frenzied performance.. I still prefer the mellow adam.. not this one.. definitely not this one.

Matt Girraud – Have you ever really loved a woman
– the start of the song is good.. but unfortunately, he stumbled on the bridge! oh no.. tsk tsk.. there were rough and pitchy moments. I’m so disappointed.

Danny Gokey – Endless Love
– Yes, I’m also distracted with his hand gestures before.. and it was still there.. But I kinda like his performance this week. Though I’m not a big fan of his vocals.. I don’t like his rough/raspy voice.. Yeah.. David Cook is really great last year!! yeah I just have to mention that hahaha.

Kris Allen – Falling Slowly
– I don’t know the song actually.. at first I was bored, but he managed to bring it on.. I’m loving his distinct great voice. Not the best though, but it was really good.

Lil Rounds – The Rose
– I was bothered with the new look, the new hair. Vocally it is actually good, especially the middle part. Though it’s a bit boring.. but I think she did well.. yeah..

My top 3:

– Anoop

– Allison

– Kris



Yesterday, I’m hurrying up to reach the house on time just to catch the start of American Idol 7 Finale. For the record, this is my first time ever to complete a season of American idol, from the very start of the audition until the final result show. And luckily, I made it to be at home just in time.

david cook vs. david archuleta

Before I start, let me just share my opinion regarding the final battle of the davids. For me, it was the most exciting final showdown of all time. Both finalists really deserve to be on that spot. The judges said that it was a knockout win in favor of David Archuleta (DA), but I must praise David Cook (DC) for he also delivered a very good battle that night. On the first round, Simon Cowell said DA won over DC. But in my opinion, I like DC’s song more, much livelier than DA’s song. On the second round, both sang two different unknown songs. Simon said Cook’s song is not a winning/finale song; it does not fit the event, and then gave the praise again to Archuleta. But again, my praise goes to Cook. Both of them sang an inspiring song, but I like the message of DC’s song more. Again, it’s a very lively song, and his performance was really stunning, he’s a star! And the third round, I get a little disappointed with Cook’s choice of song. But when he said that the whole thing is a “progression”, I admired him instantly. That’s the right attitude of a real artist, taking risks and does his best whatever happens.

Whew, so back to the finale. Actually, I already knew who won the title that night. And I’m happy that Cook won as the new American idol. I just want to see how the finale went on. The group performances of the final 12 were really good. My only beef with the finale last night is that most of the guests were old artist! You have Donna Summer, Bryan Adams, George Michael, and the performers along with David Cook and Brooke White (see? I even didn’t knew their names!). This is supposed to be a youthful show. But yeah, I see that they must balance everything so that they’ll cater to a much bigger scope of audience. Good thing that they also had Jonas Brothers, One Republic, Jordin Sparks, and Carrie Underwood!

Speaking of Carrie Underwood, she’s so beautiful!! Very stunning, she’s glowing and beaming! And her voice? Wow… she’s the best idol of all of them!

And finally, the new American idol was announced. And we saw a very emotional David Cook singing the winning song of the night. I’m almost teary-eyed last night, watching him emerging as the idol of the year. To tell you the truth, I really didn’t like him at the start. I even hoped before that he wouldn’t make it to the top 12 because he was so arrogant that time. But as weeks gone by, I saw the changes in his personality. He became a little humble, at least. And by and by, I saw his potential to be the winner of the competition because he really has a great voice and great talent. He really deserves to be the AMERICAN IDOL!

Cook wins the Idol
