American Idol 8 – Top 36 – Group 3 – Top 3 + Wildcards [review]

March 5, 2009

So! Who else was feeling super duper hyper-actively ecstatic after today’s results show? I DID!!!

lil

Lil Rounds was, expectantly, the top female of the bunch. Her happy-go-lucky attitude plus her powerhouse (and creative) singing won her the top spot. Hooray for Lil!

scott

Scott MacIntyre was too, expectantly, the top male of Group 3. All it takes is a little blindness and some passion to put you through to the next round. I’m not really convinced about Scott, I think he just got it there because of his sob story.

Jorge Nunez received the third highest number of votes with his Latino flavour, Spanish blubbering and tears. Honestly, if he didn’t broke down at the end of his performance, I doubt he’ll even sail through.

Okay, so whatever about the top 3 from Group 3. The real fun part was when Ryan announced that there will be 8 Wildcards chosen by the judges performing tomorrow. All the contestants that didn’t made it via votes had another chance of rounding up the top 12. This was where all the adrenalin began. I was literally sitting on the edge of my seat clutching a pillow and shouting “MATT GIRAUD!!!!” to my TV screen.

Lo and behold, Kara announced that Matt Giraud was getting another chance. I seriously cheered so loud I’m surprised anyone within a one mile radius didn’t hear me. Hehe. Maybe not that far, but you get the idea. I could almost kiss Kara for announcing it, though I will not take back all the bad stuff I said about her. Oops.

Who else was in the Wildcard Eight? Almost all my favourites, to sum it up. Jasmine Murray, Megan Corkrey and  Ricky Braddy were among my favourites.  I jumped in joy when they made it. And of course, the one that I cheered for the most (besides Matt) was Tatiana Del Toro. I was super excited that Tatiana was chosen to be in the Elite Eight. Tatiana seriously rocks.

I don’t really care much for Von Smith, Jesse Langseth and Anoop Desai at this point. I don’t understand why the judges chose Von, he has zero chance of making it to the top 12. And IF he really makes it, I’ll promise not to curse Kara again. As for Anoop, I think he’s really overrated.

Who SHOULD have been in the Elite Eight? Felicia Barton, in my opinion. I thought she did great yesterday. They definitely should’ve picked her over Von.

SO! Tomorrow the Eight will battle it out for the last three spots! I really hope it’s a two-guy-one-girl thing again. That way the top 12 will be comprised of 8 males and 4 females. The males really own the females this year.

GO MATT G!
GO TATIANA!

What do you think? Ecstatic or just plain bummed? Leave comments!

  1. well well, i agree with you about scott that he might not have the voice quality that we are all looking for. i mean, there were few bad notes here and there. it’s obvious that he can sing, but not that good. he totally sells out because of his heartwarming story and nothing more. in my opinion there are better singers than him in this season. anyways, i also like him, i’m just not as hyped as everybody else. and lil rounds was amazing! need i say more? hehe 🙂

    i have a few favorites in the 8 wildcards too and tatiana is one of them. she obviously have good singing voice and she has wide vocal range. she can be an artist for every genre. and yey! megan was able to make it in the wild card! i hope this time, she gets the spot, i love her she’s charming! 🙂 i have to watch the episode today so i can tally my top 3. but basing on the group i hope it would be megan, anoop and tatiana or matt.

    p.s. i totally hate von. no offense to his supporters. peace out!


  2. The two main contenders this year seem to be Allison Iraheta and Danny Gokey
