Ok, it is time for my usual day after recap of what I though happened on American Idol the night before. This one may be a little different than most… I’ll explain later.
Sanjaya Malakar is untouchable. I am not sure how he does it, but he is. So even though I am of the opinion that he should be voted off every week, I will probably be writing about him the day after the finale. That said, I will not bash him anymore. There are a few reasons for this, but the one that is most important to this section is that he is just totally untouchable. He’s not going anywhere no matter the quality of his singing.
Chris Sligh, on the other hand, is touchable, and it is my opinion that he is gone tonight. He did not do ‘Every little thing she does is magic’ any justice last night, and I think it will reflect on him. If not him, the on Haley Scarnato, although I think the boys are voting for her just to see what she’ll wear next week.
Jordin Sparks slipped to my number three with her performance last night. It was rocky and off key in my opinion. And Lakisha Jones did a lot better, so she moves up to my number two. My number one, along with every other hearing person in the world, is Melinda Doolittle. She once again set herself apart from the crowd yesterday. I know she is going to win it. And it won’t be for any other reason than she can sing. Phil Stacey did an excellent copy of ‘Every breath you take’. Unfortunately it was exactly that… a copy. Had he added any originality to that song it might have been better.
Blake Lewis and Chris Richardson both did pretty well last night. I thought Blake showed a side of himself that he hasn’t shown yet, and it was pretty good. Gina Glocksen also did fairly well. At least well enough to stay for another week.
So let’s see, that’s everybody right? Melinda, Lakisha, Jordin, Haley, Gina, Phil, Blake, Chris R and Chris S… yep, got all of them. At least the ones that should be there.
Watching what comes out of your mouth
Ephesians 4:29 reads “Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.” I have struggled greatly with this over the last few weeks (maybe months) and have noticed my wife and kids struggling with it as well. There is a lot of teaching about the power of the tongue and speech in the Word, and this is not nearly long enough to accommodate that teaching. But I will say that I am taking a new approach to the words that come out of my mouth. And I will be sharing that with my family very soon.
I started too last night with putting a moratorium on bashing Sanjaya Malakar on American Idol. And let me tell you, he did not make it easy for us last night. But we persevered and made do. When the Bible study is done with this topic, maybe the kids will see why I asked them to quiet their bashing down as well.
Anyhow, if no one has told you yet, have a great day today. I hope that you are blessed in all that you do today and I pray that you might be a light to someone in the world today.
