DISCLAIMER: I missed the first four performers and can only speak of their performances based on the run down at the end of the show.
Last night was an abysmal night for American Idol. The songs were rough, the theme (Beatles) was even rougher and the performers seemed to be completely out of sorts. While I thought David Archuleta, David Cook and Chikezie all did very well, the rest of the performances were just ok if not horrible.
Kristy Lee Cook, in my opinion, needs to go home this week. Her performance lacked everything a good performance has and her singing was awful. Amanda Overmeyer, a favorite of mine for a while, blew it hard. Michael Johns did a terrible job and Jason Castro stunk it up too.
The rest of the performers were just OK.
I am not sure if it was the stage, the music or the theme tonight but all of the singers just didn’t bring it. I hope next week they will.
But for this week I think the three to watch for being in the bottom three are: Kristy Lee Cook, Amanda Overmeyer and Syesha Mercado.
