My American Idol Score Card - Top 10

This week's theme is all about the music of the present... it is expected to be one enjoyable week. But I know I'm not alone in saying that this was the worst one so far. Simon says the reason why they were doing songs of the 21st century was so that these singers would be able "to prove they are as good as contemporary artist." If this is any indication of what kind of music and performers we'll hear in the future, then please bring me back in time, to the 1950's!

Last week's 50's week was spectacular. This week showed signs of the Idols getting a little to complacent and tired ... and maybe even overworked. I think that the routine, the stress and the pressure is starting to get to them. They probably think they need a lot of rest and relaxation; gotta be overwhelmed with stardom or stuff to do for this show.

But if someone unexpectedly gets the boot today, that should jolt them up right back to reality. It's still a competition boys and girls, you've gotta work harder and relax later! Stars work a lot harder, that's why they're there.


Rating Legends:

PERFORMANCE
- includes stage presence, camera flirtation, projection, audience impact, movements or choreography, dramatic impact

VOCALS
- exactly what it is: VOICE
- "If I close my eyes and listen, do they still sound as good?"

STYLE
- includes the physical appeal, personaly style, looks, how they carry themselves, how they carry their clothes (if it is right for their age/performance/personality)

    RUNDOWN OF TOTALS


    Chris - 8.33
    Paris - 8.33
    Taylor - 8.33
    Elliot - 7.66
    Mandisa - 7.5
    Buck - 7.33
    Ace - 7
    Katharine - 6.66
    Kellie - 6.66
    Lisa - 6.66


    * Except for Katharine, who this week failed to impress me at all, I am now seeing a pattern emerging from my score cards. Final three could be: Paris, Taylor and Chris. Katharine is also a good bet (inspite this week). But I would love to see Elliot up there too, if he only tries to look like he isn't terrified of what he is doing!


    Actual results of bottom three:

    Ace
    Katharine



    Lisa - Voted Off
