American Idol- Hollywood Week 2 thoughts

WOW, some of those groups were bad. Are these really the best singers in the country? Did the great singers not try out? Did they not have the “full package” American Idol is always looking for? We aren’t blown away by anyone yet. We hope that there are some people we haven’t heard a lot from that will give us chills once the real competition gets underway. These people remind us of a line from old Simon Cowell, “You could get that quality of performance at any theme park in America.” Too true.

We are elated that bipolar Ashley Sullivan made it through, because she actually has a good voice. Robbie, the kid who looks like Aladdin, surprised us by bringing it this week too. We’re glad Jaycee made it, even though he must be the last person on earth who hasn’t heard, “Mercy.” The group that took him in needs a free pass through Hollywood week too. We need celebrities who are actual nice people. We guess Lauren Alaina really is going to win this. She’s the best right now. A group of 15 and 16-year old performing “Somebody to Love” showed a lot of promise though, and their moms were hilarious. And we are still liking Hollie Cavanaugh and that Casey guy.

We were sad to see little Emma Henry tossed out because she faded into the background of a terrible group, because she was pretty good. We can’t believe tone deaf, loud Jacqueline got through (she is the pretty blonde whose boyfriend was given the axe last week.) She was a heck of a lot worse than Paris, who got the boot despite her adorable special-needs baby and perfectly serviceable vocals. Other people we feel bad for? The little blonde, Jessica Yantz, who decided to partner with Tiffany and who got thrown out. First of all, she was on-key and had a really sweet voice, and second of all, “Irreplaceable” by Beyonce is a hard song. It doesn’t flow right if you aren’t Beyonce. Try singing it. It just doesn’t work out well. She partnered with Tiffany because she felt bad for Tiffany. The blonde didn’t like to see her partner-less, even though Tiffany’s arrogant comment last week is the reason she couldn’t find a group. Tiffany was the blonde’s downfall, making the blonde sound really bad by being off key and hollering to overpower her. The blonde took it well and without argument. Be careful who you befriend, guys. We can’t believe we ever rooted for Tiffany! We were fooled by her too, Jessica. We wish the girl who put noodles through her face had made it too. Noodle Nose, we barely knew ye!

The ex-boyfriend, Rob Bolin, had a stank attitude and an even worse performance. He deserved to go home. Being around his ex was breaking him, and she sings better than he does anyway. The group that kicked out poor little Jaycee was stellar, and we hated them for it. We can forgive arrogance, but we can’t forgive disloyalty and stomping on others for your career. Everyone in that group is going straight to hell.

Did they sing enough Bruno Mars on that show?


  1. Seriously, Bruno Mars is cleaning up on the Idol stage.

    My favorite is Casey because he's obviously talented, interesting, and a little out of the box for Idol. He also seems like the kind of guy I would have been friends with in college. I got goosebumps during his solo performance for the first time this season.

    I also still like John Wayne Shulz. Yes, he's ridiculously good-looking, and I find myself getting lost in his cowboy eyes a little bit, but I legitimately liked his cover of "Landslide". His voice has a nice texture, and I love that he sang a song originally sung by a woman. I also think it would be nice to see a viable male country artist get to the top 12.

    I can't believe you're rooting for Ashley! She's seriously about to have a nervous breakdown before our eyes. Remember Tatiana from season 8? Ashley's like a less delusional, but way more unstable version of crazy pants Tatiana. Hilariously, though, she reminds me of Parker Posey playing one of her insane David Guest movie characters.

  2. For the record, one of us is NOT rooting for Ashley. She's completely crazypants. Casey's definitely up there in terms of favorites, and you're absolutely right - his final solo was outstanding.

  3. That's WHY you should root for Ashley. You can't buy that kind of entertainment. It comes to the show for free.
