tiah15: GoT Dani (TM mine)
if there's a three year old running wild. Unfortunately the familiy where I'm tutoring at home did not know that. Consequently me and the girl ended up locked into the living room while daddy and Allessandro (said 3 year old) left for some friend's home. If you're wonderingabout our reaction when I tried to leave - it went something like this:
Did you lock the door ? ...Mhhh, no, why ?...Because it's locked....It can't be locked!...It is...But I don't have a key!...Well great. Now what ?
We phoned the dad who laughed at us - I could hear him - and then he called the mom, who came home 5 minutes later. Unfortunately Allessandro likes to hide keys, too, so she ended up trying the one from the kitchen and that worked as well. Good thing that I wasn't even late for my next student, which is from 7 p.m. till 8.30 ON A FRIDAY. Just so you know how I spend my Friday evenings now :D

Completely unrelated, you can find my take on the contestants of the two last American Idol shows under the cut (not the wildcard show yet, we haven't gotten that far). I think my sleeping patterns would be great for someone living in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean nowadays but I'm simply not tired as long as I sit up :D



Last week's show:

I didn't write down the names at first so there's no particular order. I just remember liking Allison (she rocked!).
Jesse (I like her voice and think she's absolutely beautiful)
Matt #1 wasn't good - much better in Hollywood - I loved him there
Matt #2 was good for me
Mishovanna (love that name - it's different) did good, too in my opinion
Adam - he's an entertainer, what can I say. He still reminds me of musical a bit (not that that's a bad thing)
Norman was hilarious as always - the sign finally got some action :)
Megan - I don't know, she has a unique and good voice but she looked awkward on stage
Jasmine - I really liked her in Hollywood but she couldn't pull the song off (some notes were off, I guess she was nervous)
Jeanine - I can't remember who that was LOL but she got a thumbs down from me
Kai - is sad to say he was better before, too
Kris was good, too - I think he went through because of his looks though, because he wasn't spectactular yet
I can't remember who sang Coldplay (I think Matt or Kris? or am I in the wrong show?) but that sounded weird because Chris Martin has such a different voice. I guess I prefer not knowing the song sometimes so I'm not distracted by how it should sound.

My top three were Allison, Jesse and Adam, so I got 2 out of 3 - not bad :)


This week's show:

Von was good (his name creeps me out every time!)
Taylor was good
Alex was bad - he screemed/growled/whatever that was to much :D
Arianna - contrary to the judges I really liked her singing that song (it's not easy staying in rhythm)
Ju'not was great, I think - so much feeling in there
Kristen - mediocre, the song was boring to me although I've been told the original is much better (I'll take you word for it, Chris *g*)
Nathaniel - since I like and know the original Meatloaf song, his version was just strange with his high voice (see Coldplay comment above)
Felicia was soso, nothing to remember for me
Scott was great as always - I didn't think he'd stand up on that stage WOW
Kendall - soso again, some of the notes sounded strange but the rest was pretty good
Jorge - loved him! So much emotion put into the song. He has an expressive face :)
Lil - what can I say. I had my top 3 finished and then they announced her and I remembered her from the auditions where she was great. WIthout you is my favourite Mary J. song and she did it really well.

So in the end my favourites were Lil, Scott and Jorge - 3 out of 3 !!!

And who's in the wildcard show ? I told you we didn't get rid of Tatiana yet. Wish I would have been wrong though. Who else is in there ? Von - alright. Jesse - YAY. Megan - alright. Matt - YAY. Anoop - YAY. Jasmine - YAY. And I can't for the life of me remember no. 8 but at least some of my faves have another shot. Please don't destroy my happiness yet, will watch on Sunday most likely. Until then I'll be happily ignorant.



And since it seems that instead of memes this week people-who-tell-you-what-not-to-write-on-your-lj get around, a huge thanks to my f-list for not saying something like that to me. I'm already angry enough about the audacity some people possess when they're online!

And just so you know that my mom named me correctly, I give you the 'What your initials say about you' meme. I think it's pretty accurate.


You Are Lighthearted and Hilarious

As for AI: I. Adore. Allison. I love Jorge and Lil. But I'm not really getting on the Scott bandwagon. His voice just isn't where it needs to be for me.

The wildcard show - Interesting. I wish they would have brought back some other people though. They should have picked Jamar back from Hollywood week. I LOVED him!

It's not just his voice alone (that's not as good as Jorge's for example), but I like the emotion that goes with it.

JAMAR FTW! His last song in Hollywood was wonderful and I was shocked when he got cut :( Still don't know why they did it. Anyone else you wanted back from the three shows ?

Let's see...

From Night One of the Top 36 - I really did like Jackie Tohn, she was fun! More the audition/Hollywood than her Elvis impression. But I think she had personality. And Stevie Wright was cute.

From Night Two - I liked Mishavonna! They were way too harsh on her! And Kai was so likable. It also seemed like he and Megan were BFFs. I don't know - I just got that vibe from them, always standing together and whispering...

And Night Three? Ju'not was my man. I wanted him in so bad! And they didn't even call him back for Wildcard!?! Those bitches...

I have no idea why they called back Jesse and Ricky. Unless it had to do with all the website drama with Ricky. And the fact that Jesse is Jonny Lang's sister. Whoop-dee-doo!

Jamar was FANTASTIC in Hollywood! WTF was up with eliminating him? More drama for Danny? I wanted to see them both in the running! It would have been so sweet!

Jackie was great! I personally liked her Elvis song, too :) She has a really fun personality and looked incredibly comfortable on stage. I was surprised they didn't get Ju'not back in as well because they gave him such good 'reviews' on the song - his voice was great there.

I guess I'm not involved enough with AI because I don't know anything about Jesse's or Ricky's website dramas/relationships. Not that I really remember Ricky right now anyway. I still like Jesse though. I'll see how the wildcard show works out tomorrow.

Kai was very likable, yes. I think it wasn't a good song choice for him (and I think the judges said so as well), so he could have gotten a wildcard to show what he can do with a different song.

Maybe they threw Jamar out because Danny got in already ? That's what I was wondering - whether they only wanted one of two friends, not both, for whatever reason. I could rant about that for a while :)

We can chat more after you see the Wildcard show! I don't want to slip and ruin it for you! *grins*

Oh Jackie, Ju'not, Jamar.... maybe they just don't let you in if your name starts with the letter J? Only Jorge because it's Spanish.

Tomorrow then :) And the J thing - it's worth a thought :D Or maybe they still couldn't pronounce Ju'not, so they better not take him back ?
