Review: AMERICAN IDOL “Top 5 Finalists Compete”

The Top 5 performed tonight on AMERICAN IDOL.

First of all: Wow tonight was just boring as hell!

Second of all: What was up with Paula critiquing round two before it even started, was she even paying attention? It sort of shows that they already have an idea from rehearsal of what they are planning to say about the performances.

Third, let’s find out how everybody did.

1. Jason Castro

Jason Castro

Thoughts: Song #1 – I thought Jason did an ok job.

Song #2 – I just have nothing to say tonight. I guess it was ok, I just think the night was uninteresting.

Rating: Song #1 – 2/4

Song #2 – 2/4

David Cook

Thoughts: Song #1 – This song was ok. Nothing too exciting for me.

Song #2 – This was better than the first one, so I guess compared to the whole night this was really good.

Rating: Song #1 – 2/4

Song #2 – 3/4

3. Brooke White

Brooke White

Thoughts: Song #1 – What a horrible choice of song. So Brooke is not really getting better week after week. I didn’t like it at all and I am a fan of the song, so that’s saying something.

Song #2 – I was still stuck on that first song disaster that I couldn’t really concentrate on the second one. I guess she did ok, but I just think the competition is taking a toll on her.

Rating: Song #1 – 1/4

Song #2 – 2/4

4. David Archuleta

David Archuleta

Thoughts: Song #1 – David did ok. I honestly don’t have much to say, so I’ll just leave it at that.

Song #2 – This second song was better than the first one, but I am still not blown away.

Rating: Song #1 – 2/4

Song #2 – 2/4

5. Syesha Mercado

Syesha Mercado

Thoughts: Song #1 – So far I think Syesha won the first round of songs. I thought she sang the song very well, but I will admit that the song put me to sleep a little bit, but maybe it’s because I’m really tired.

Song #2 – Another good performance, it actually got me to pay attention for a little bit.

Rating: Song #1 – 3/4

Song #2 – 3/4

Who would I send home tonight? Brooke White. I used to be a big fan but she has been doing pretty bad the last few weeks and I think it’s about time.
