American Idol 02/21/05

Tonight, the 12 men will perform (live, on the East Coast) before America in hopes of making it into the final dozen.

It's my understanding that three boys will be eliminated from tonight, and three girls from tomorrow.

So it'll be three weeks to the final 12? Okay.

Who will the audience choo-choo-choose?

Wow, um, I don't think they should do any sort of dance at the start of the show.

Well maybe the guys shouldn't. The girls can if they want to.

Ok so far I don't think anyone has done all that well. Thus far the Constantine guy (singing right now) is doing well, and I liked the other long haired white guy. I was sad that Mini-Clay picked such a cliched song.

Constantin(e?) picked a good song -- I didn't expect him to do "Kiss from a Rose" --
but he was kind of warbling through parts of it. He has a lot of actual stage presence and charisma, though.

Bo was good, too, and Simon pretty much summed it for both of them -- Bo sang better, but C gave a better performance.

Trach-boy and the others have just been belting out high school prom crap. Bo nailed it in his interview when he said he wanted to be playing a guitar. This stuff kind of tends to come off like karaoke night.

Did they get rid of the section where the singers go back to talk to Ryan or does that always happen later?

Good (mainly good energy on the stage)
Mario - some notes got a little scary
Bo - stuck in rock genre though

Average:
Judd - so-so recording voice, good stage presence
Anthony - not his best
Scott - horrible song choice
Anwar - wasn't as impressed as the judges were
David - eh
Travis - did not sound out of pitch (Simon is tone deaf)
Joseph - don't like his tone, though

So-so
Nikko - boring
Constantine - looks like Simpsons character

Horrible
Jared - nuff said

------

Please, let's ban the Stevie Wonder songs? Please!

When less contestants are left, they get some on-camera time with Ryan in the backroom (like 8 or 9 are left)

Joseph Murena and Mario Vazquez were definitely the best tonight IMO. Great voices and a presence. Definitely have an American Idol look. Judd Harris is good. But he's too much like that dork from last year. He needs to be careful. He's close to being a parody. But he's got a good voice. Can he doing anything but Billy Joel meets Elvis though? The two rock guys....I don't know....they just bug me. Especially Constantine. Good voices. Neither an American Idol type. And Anthony Fedorov. Sigh. Wasn't Teen Martin from last year enough? Does the world really need another Clay Aiken? No.

There's something about Joseph's voice that didn't set right with me, plus, he's got that boy band look to him, so that put me off.

Constantine has no range, he's got his niche, but it's not enough.

I was joking to my husband about Anwar's name --"What, was he named after Sadat?"--and then I realized with his age, he probably was.

I thought Mario was the best. He must have been backstage sweating his song choice though when Simon dissed everyone for doing "bad Stevie Wonder impersonations".

Put a hula skirt on Constantine and a shock of hair, and he'd look like sideshow Bob.

Anybody singing Michael Bolton should be kicked out.

None of the guys gave an impressive performance.

I liked the performance by Mario Vasquez the best but can somebody please tell Ryan Seacrest how to pronounce his last name properly.

I was surprised at first when Anwar started singing "Moon River" but he made it unique and different.

I didn't like Anwar's Moon River, it practically sent me into an insulin-induced coma.

Bo Bice won my vote. Best performance of the night.

Constantine betrayed all his rocker brethren by doing a Seal song. Seal? COME ON!

Anybody else think Mario resembles Jamariquoi 100%? He has the same voice and pitch like he does, which imo, is a very very good thing.

I still think Anwar is going to win. But i PRAY that David Brown makes it through the next round. He has so much potential and i hope he didn't blow it last night.

How long is the voting period??? I haven't voted yet tonight and would like to but not sure. Can't find info on idolonfox.com or other forums.

Edit: for only 2 hours. Guess i'm out of luck. Hopefully David can get votes out of potential and we can send Judd, Joseph or Jared home.

But what's the point of only 2 hours? Of course people have always complained about the line being busy. Why not just open it for a few hours until the results show so they can count all the votes. I'd imagine they'd have a computer or some sort that would auto-count all the votes.

Were they the ONLY 12 guys of the bunch to choose from? If so, this season is going to be sad
