AMERICAN IDOL is on day two for the male contestants. It is clearly the best group of men we have seen in several seasons. In tracking the incredible talent…I lost count along the way. Too bad real estate has picked up leaving less time for blogging…there is way more to say! But let me break it down quickly.
There were a few who really shined and deserve a special shout-out. The very best vocals came from; Nick Boddington (rocked the piano), Curtis Finch Jr (a clear favorite), Cortez Shaw, and the confident Chicagoan Devin Velez. Basically, these were the BEST of the BEST.
But let’s not forget the ones who could have won in many past season’s, even against many who made it through to the finals. They include; Marvin Calderon, Lazaro Abbos, Burnell Taylor, Gupreet SIngh Sarin, Jimmy Smith, Paul Jolly, and the very quirky yet loveable Charlie Askew. If you get lost in their names, look them up on Youtube, they will be ones to watch.
It will be interesting to see if the ladies step up their game and outshine the guys next week. My fingers are crossed, because there was a lot of talent in the early rounds.
The new changes seem to make sense…guys up and then girls. Also no more group announcements of who goes home, just end their misery along the way. Contestants can now play instruments during the early rounds, which helps them stand out. I am liking the new changes…what about you?
On another note, Keith Urban and Mariah Carey are growing on me. They actually seem genuinely nice and offer honest feedback. But Nicki Minaj is the new Simon Cowell without the love in her hateful words. She is wearing on my last nerve and if she is going to be mean to the contestants, she needs to learn balance. While I do enjoy her music….her judging skills need some work. Nicki PLEASE call Jennifer Lopez for tips!
