2/29/12: AMERICAN IDOL RECAP; JESSICA SANCHEZ BEST OF THE NIGHT

29 Feb

AMERICAN IDOL presented the top 12 girls tonight and while I’m all for “Girl Power”, most of them were definitely beat out by the guys.  While the talent is obviously amazing this year, that also adds to a higher level of expectations.  The show started a bit flat but it took one singer to catch my attention, but not in a good way.   

Tonight I was a little distracted working while trying catch the second round.  But I actually stopped to get fully engaged when Haley Johnsen hit the stage. However, it was not for good reason; when she began to sing she completely massacred the hit song “Sweet Dreams”, originally performed by the Eurythmics Unfortunately for Haley, she got it totally wrong, and it sounded awful.

The good news is, she was followed by the 16-year-old, 6 foot beauty, Shannon Magrane.  Her confidence and perfection was heard as she belted out a song about candles.  While it was not a familiar tune to me, it sure sounded incredible.

After she sang, luckily it seemed to bring the show to life.  Jessica Sanchez then stepped out and gave the best overall performance of the night.  Although her vocal cords were still sore, she overcame her illness and delivered. She received a well-deserved standing ovation from the judges after singing her heart out.  Jessica is the one to watch, and should give the guys a run for their money.

Sklyar Laine and Elise Teston also gave solid performances.  But in the end, the guys seemed to slightly edge out the girls during the early stage of the competition.  Let’s hope the girls step up their game and “rule it” during round two. 

Who do you think is going home first?  It’s too early for me to tell, but I am fairly confident Jessica Sanchez or Deandre Brakensick won’t be leaving anytime soon.

On another note, I’m really beginning to miss Simon Cowell.  He kept it real, and it’s getting annoying hearing them praise pretty much everyone.  If the judges want to prepare them for the “real world” of the music industry, they will need to offer better critiques.  I’m just saying…

    I feel they were really easy on the guys Some of them did not do too well for my taste. The good thing is, they brought back the wild card, it stunned me, when they send him home. To me he is one of the best singers. It’s so nice to hear a really manly voice. He also has a tender demeanor which makes him loveable. Sorry, I have a hard time keeping up the the names at this point 🙂
