captjamieway: John and Aeryn are frelling hot! (country - carrie)

So we're down to the final 36 of American Idol and finally get to vote. This is when the show starts to get interesting for me... I hate the beginning auditions, because of all of the people goofing off. The first group of 12 was up last night (a 2 hour episode with a freakin' commerical in between each contestant *sigh*) and I'll put my thoughts under a cut.

Ever since the first moment I heard him sing, I've had a clear favorite... and his name is Danny Gokey. He's totally awesome and if he doesn't make it to the final 12, which I would find highly unlikely, I'll be seriously pissed off. I voted for him over 50 times last night and his line was pretty busy, so I think he's good to go. Ya know, I also liked his friend that didn't make it to the final 36. I thought he was different and had a decent voice, better than some of the people that they did let through.

I also voted for Ann Marie, Anoop, Ricky, and Brent.... but to a much lesser extent (as in 1 vote a piece for the guys, so they wouldn't interfere with Danny, and a few for Ann Marie... and just FYI, I didn't get a busy signal for any of them). I mainly voted for them based on past performances, because they didn't really wow me that much last night (except for Ricky, I thought he was pretty good). And, yeah... I kind of voted for Brent just because he sings Country and, aside from the fact that he picked a song I don't like, I would like to hear what he'd do next time... with a song that would showcase his voice better.

Much to my dismay, Tatiana actually sounded pretty good... but she's nutty as a fruitcake and has been annoying the hell out of me throughout the competition, so there's no way I was going to vote for her, lol.

But, yeah... go Danny! Hope he makes it. :)

Yay American Idol!

Danny is my favourite so far. They really did save the best for last last night. He blew the rest of the out of the water. :P

I agree Tatiana did good last night, and I was surprised. Doesn't mean I'll vote for her because I'm still sick and tired of her and her laugh is beginning to drive me nuts.

Everybody I talk to loves Danny, yay!

Lol, yeah... Tatiana's laugh is crazy. I don't know what I'm sick of more, her laugh or her crying over everything.

I guess that's the price for Tatiana's behaviour. Her constant crying last night and hiding behind the other girls and guys made me glad she's gone even more.

But next week's preview, are you serious frakking Norman Gentle (ewww the Gentle part of his name is seriously annoying) got through!? I didn't even know he was still on the show.

Yeah, that was really annoying. I mean, she did realize that everyone elses dreams were squashed too, right? It wasn't like she was the only one who was disappointed. But I guess the world revolves around Tatiana. I hope they don't bring her back for the wild card.

I couldn't believe when they let "Norman Gentle" through. They passed up some good talent in order to keep him.

OMG. ITA - EVERYTHING YOU SAID. He is BY FAR my favorite...and it is NOT just the pity factor! I haven't gotten to watch it all yet...I was out with the mom last night so I TOTALLY missed it!

DEAR GOD, I SERIOUSLY DISLIKE TATIANA. I really like her voice...but just because of the person it's ATTACHED TO...hells no. I just can't in good conscience vote for her. EVER. I can't believe they LET HER THROUGH with all of the WHINING that she did at them through the audition rounds! PLEASE!

Is it just me, or did they seem to pick favorites and put them through this time, no matter how bad they were? That's the ONLY explanation I can come up with for booting Danny's BFF, other than they didn't want to take votes away from him. It just feels...RIGGED this year. Of course, I thought it was rigged when they bumped my Chris Daughtry a couple of years ago, but hey. It's just more proof for me right now.

On a side note, I LOVE Brent! ♥ I hope he gets to go on again...I'll be highly upset if he doesn't get to.

Yeah, my loving him has nothing to do with the pity factor either. He's just really good.

It's such a shame that Tatiana has to be so loopy, because she sounded really good. I actually think she sounded the best out of the girls the other night. But I could never vote for her because I think she's nuts... I'd be afraid she'd go psycho at some point and chop the other contestants up into little pieces or something.

I can't figure out why they didn't take Danny's friend. I like to think that it's not rigged, but I mean... come on, you take Norman Gentle and not him?? I don't get it.

Danny is a PHENOM! And did you not SQUEE when Michael Johns came out last night?!??

Oh, and I was actually thinking of Michael when I said Brent...I don't know why. LOL.

I know...I felt the EXACT same way. I guarantee you, if he comes out for AI again next year, they'll take him all the way! It upset me they they didn't take him...I was HIGHLY disappointed.

It was good to see Michael and Carly again. I love it when the old idols pop up.

I looked up Danny on wiki tonight and saw a link to Sophia's Heart Foundation (http://www.sophiasheart.org) (in honor of his wife). I read what he says under "Danny's Voice" and it made me love him even more. What an amazing man.

I hope so! Of course, I say this having only seen 1/3 of the contestants so far, lol.
