American Idol Roundtable- Top 11 Week Pre-Show Tuesday, March 18, 2008Posted by Jerkwheat in American Idol, jerkwheat, You know how I know you're gay?.
So, what could possibly be cooler lamer more awesomer than a bunch of dudes talking about American Idol? NOTHING! Join us this week for our new regular feature with some of your favorite Deadspin commenters as we break down the current week of American Idol. Joining me will be Matt_T, JB*, and fatfat. Follow the jump to join the conversation…
Well, the gay stripper has left us, Chikeze has surprised us, and
somehow Kristy Lee Cook survived turning the Beatles into a
hoedown…quite a first week of the big competition.
It’s another week of the Lennon-McCartney songbook, so we sort of know
what to expect now – although I’m personally expecting more early
Beatles pop songs this go around (i.e. I Wanna Hold Your Hand)
Any random predicitions for Tuesday nights show?
Kristy will probably go pretty straight with her performance, keeping the song true to form so as to avoid the ire of the judges and the voting public.
Meanwhile, I think Ramiele – and possibly Jason Castro – will probably go for something bigger and energetic in response to some criticism – and could pay the price for it.
How Brooke, Carly, and Chikizie follow up last week’s showings will be very telling. They were – in my opinion, of course – the tops last week. I don’t think all three will be again.
The over/unders –
- Times Randy Jackson says “dog” – 28
- Promos for The Return of Jezebel James – 8*
- Times I ask my wife is Paula is drunk – 6**
*Null and void if show has already been canceled
**Thirteen, if we watch this on DVR after our four year old goes to bed
I predict Carly will be the best performer again, Amanda will be the worst, but Ramiele goes home.
I agree that KLC will play it straight and will give a good performance. So I think she’ll be safe.
I am very afraid about Amanda this week. Somehow she got love last week and I thought she bastardized the Beatles. More of the same this week. Those songs just don’t fit her travesty of a voice. Maybe she could do Helter Skelter.
I agree with Josh about Ramiele and Jason. They have to come out more upbeat just to show a contrast. I could see Jason taking heat for going too upbeat since he seems like more of a soulful and smooth singer.
‘Keze is still on the hot seat but he really put himself in a better position with that strong performance. If he can come out and do it again he will be in great shape. Funny, but I feel like rooting for him now.
I am starting to really reconsider my pick of David A. to win it all. His performance last week left a bad taste in my mouth.
Best of the night? I say Brooke because I want her to bear my childr…I mean because she has been outstanding her last 3 performances.
Worst? Amanda. Vomit.
Going Home? Amanda.
