Idol Banter

Aah Idol, is it just me or is this the worst season the judges have ever had? I'm not sure they know what they're looking for in any of these contestants and in turn they are making it hell for them, all of them. Tuesday night when Kara told early favorite Katie Stevens, "You don't know who you are." I scowled and thought, shit I wouldn't know either after being subjected to all of the judges haranguing. And, tonight she critiqued sixteen year old, Aaron Kelly with some foolish fodder about him not relating to his song choice because sixteen year old's know nothing about the content of said song. To which I sneered and told her right to her TV face that she has no clue what 16 year old's know because she doesn't have one. Which of course has as much to do with her ability to judge the competition as it has with his ability to sing the damn song. Rolls eyes.

Here's the deal-in my expert, has sung a song, bought a few, written at least one for a dirty little pimply boy-some time before the age of sixteen, and bore witness (albeit unauthorized) to the songwriting and performance prowess of my own previously dirty little 16 year old boy- opinion, ready?

I Loved: Crystal Bowersox, Didi Benami, Lacey Brown, Lee Dewyze, Alex Lambert, and while it pains me to admit it, Michael Lynche: he irks me like white shoes after Labor Day.

I Hated: Kara DioGuardi, Paige Miles, Aaron Kelly and Kara DioGuardi some mo'.

Who's Outta There? Lilly Scott, Paige Miles, Todrick Hall, and regrettably, Andrew Garcia

Peace and good luck to the Top 12

love your reviews!! kara has been annoying... it particularly irks me when the judges tell someone to make a song their own, and then tell someone who does that you stick to the melody/sing it straight/etc... i think my hair would be dropping out if i were a contestant hearing that...

Those judges are driving me insane as well! ugh! Shut-up already about song choice and just let them sing their hearts out - judge on THAT, not the song choice EVERY-FREAKING-TIME... and seriously kara is driving me insane with all her "wisdom"... I still like Shioban! She's so quirky and different! :) Can't wait for tonight! You just may be absolutely right about who's OUTTATHERE!!!
