Comments on: Idol: Billbored http://www.thepostgameshow.com/?p=950 Thu, 23 Nov 2017 01:55:36 +0000 http://wordpress.org/?v=2.7 hourly 1 By: Ewa http://www.thepostgameshow.com/?p=950&cpage=1#comment-4072 Ewa Thu, 25 Mar 2010 00:10:04 +0000 http://www.thepostgameshow.com/?p=950#comment-4072 My eyes hurt from working and watching Idol and being sleepy but I had to read your review before bed. I think I want Crystal, Casey and Siobhan to win. Paige was shit again. Tim entertained me for the first time. Don't know why he got such a slagging from the judges, if he's not there to do Glee/HSM/Effron then why's he there? Judges were right about Big Mike this week. Didi was great the judges were stupid. They loved it when Siobhan went dramatic but they have some wrong idea about who they think Didi is so she's not allowed. Lee wasn't good and was forgettable again, he can do better. David Enchilada can stay for the moment cause there are a few others we need to get rid of before him and his goofyness is slightly entertaining. Did I miss anyone? Miley! She was very annoying when being interviewed and she's quite ugly and she chews a lot of gum. I thought she was wearing shorts for the mentoring? I want Paige and the straight up guy to go home.

I should stop wasting my writing on Twitter, but 140 characters for each of these chuckleheads is about all I can muster, most weeks. You know, a week in the wilderness of the bottom half of the pack might be the best thing possible for Siobahn at the moment. I hate, hate, HATE the genericizing of the very few who are not already generic, but if she's going to win this thing she'll need to show an ability to either play the game very well (a la Big Mike, who honestly is lucky that his natural groove works so well for the show) or be able to make adjustments, like Crystal (who may have had an obedience chip implanted during that hospital stay). As of this week, Siobahn has exposed her own potential to be just (to quote 'Amadeus') "too many notes" for the competition. True, Siobahn could go out and find that mythical song that's ALL shouty high bits, and serve it right up in the judges' faces. Barring that, I still see her as most likely to get to, say, the Top Five and then erupt in a glorious protest about artist rights or DRM or something, flinging paint at Kara and storming off stage. And speaking of Crystal, the reason I don't see her as nearly the crunchy-granola I once did was that she let Miley sign her guitar, much less touch it. Then again, when she auditioned it was just Etheridge on there, then Shania Twain's was added, so maybe this is just Bowersox's way of documenting this whole strange experience? I wouldn't begrudge her selling the damn thing to pay her kid's tuition, but this "strong, talented women" thing is pretty bunk, based on the women she's collected signatures from.
