Based on last night’s performances, do you think any of the top 10 guys have a shot in heck of winning Idol this year?
Wow. After last week’s all-around dismal performances, I didn’t think American Idol could get any worse. And then it did. Pretty much all of the top 10 guys — excluding Big Mike and mullet boy Alex Lambert (his video is above) — were brutal last night.
To their credit, the boys had to sing a night earlier than anticipated because one of the top female contestants, Crystal Bowersox, was too ill to perform. Nevertheless, not even time could have helped these guys — they made the wrong song choices (Aaron Kelly, why did you sing ‘My Girl?!’), were pitchy (Tim Urban, we’re talking about you!) and downright boring (sorry, Casey James).
Even my beloved, reformed gangster Andrew Garcia, sucked with his rendition of James Morrison‘s ‘Save Yourself.’ Like the judges, I’m starting to wonder if he’ll ever be able to achieve the level of brilliance he displayed during Hollywood week with his cover of Paula Abdul‘s ‘Straight Up.’ If he wants to wow the world next week, Andrew should let loose his inner Michael Jackson like he did in this video.
As for the others, they need suggestions, too. What would you have the guys sing next week? Do YOU think there is any hope for the top ten guys?
