Double the Lacklustre

I like Neil Diamond. He's a nice, sweet, sincere kinda guy as far as I know. I like his music. You know, one or two ripping songs, like Crunchy Granola. The rest *sigh* is a wall of indistinguishable sincere guitar music that's not really my thing. Unless it's John Denver or Simon & Garfunkel, where almost every song you hear is catchy. I like catchy.

So maybe it was because I'm not a huuuge fan of Neil Diamond, though I like one or two songs and think he's nice. Or it could be that almost all of the Idols just gave boring lacklustre performances.

Notables:
David Cook sang well on both songs, though he's starting to close his eyes in a creepy way again.
David A's first song I liked, because he gave it that pop vibe which I like. He seems to have come alive for a few moments.
I really liked Syesha's vocal tone on her first song.
It was nice to hear Castro's lower tones on the first song, but for me, it's too little, too late.

I want Brooke to go today. I want to see her sorry expression as she goes, in retribution for subjecting me to it unnecessarily all these weeks. She's like a condescending kindergarten teacher who talks to adults the way she talks to her students.

Since Carly has been dropped, I must appoint a new Idol. Because she was always my favourite, I will have to decide via a process of elimination.

Not Brooke.
Not Castro.
Not Syesha.

So it's between Davids A and C. I love little David A but I feel like he's a bit of a Zombie onstage, kinda like he's going through the motions. Perhaps it's his youth or he's been doing this for so long he's over it. Seems a little disconnected.

And though I started out being a little uncomfortable with Creepy Eyes, there was a point at which his musicianship, his charm and very gracious manner towards the judges, won me over a little bit.

So my new Idol: David Cook. Go David! And keep them eyes from rolling back in your head when you close them!

I'm being realistic okay? As much as I like Castro- I don't see him as Idol material.So...COOK FOR IDOL!

what's your take on Clinton and Obama appearing on Idol as guest opinionators?

I am not certain about their policies, so I can only comment about their personalities, which seem pleasant or charismatic enough.

I don't think a huge pop/talent contest is the place to possibly do your grandstanding though, so generally I am not for politicians doing that unless they are officiating some kind of huge for-the-people thing that benefits everyone in the nation.
