Wowwwww...okay, it has been waaay to long since I've updated - things have just been busy I guess...
Anywho...WE ARE DOWN TO THE TOP 9! And while I wasn't sure that I'd actually get attached, I have done the unthinkable...i.e. for those of you not catching on...gotten attached! Ahhhhhhh!
My top favorites are Kree, Burnell and Angie, and okay, Candice too...yes, I realize that's pretty much half of the top 9...I'll narrow it down...eventually.
Kree is probably my favorite - here's her performance:
Then there's Burnell - he is a close 2nd, or tied for 1st:
Annnd Angie...annnnd Candice. Basically these 4 videos are all you needed to see from this episode.
The Vegas Cuts Continue...

Okay, so I feel like I apparently have no idea how this show is running this year...I thought the top 10 were chosen...but we're into week 2 of sudden death. Still in Vegas...next week the microphone will be travelling back to Hollywood (because the microphone travelling is apparently a thing now...really, Seacrest does his little camera aside to tell us viewers to track where it's travelling...for a shot to win a trip to the season finale...riveting stuff, I know...maybe I'll track it for 2 seconds to fill ya in on what this microphone tracking is...because now, sadly, i'm entertained by the idea of how kinda ridiculous this is...and intruiged).
The final 5 of the top 10 girls took their seats last night...and tonight, we're watching the last of the top 5 guys. On the judges...Nicki, as usual is sasssaaaay with the contestants...accents and "hell naaaws" all over the place. ...
SUDDEN DEATH...Round 1
2/20/2013 8:19:00 PM
Well, here we are...the contestants have made it to...Vegas...VEGAS???!!! What the WHAT???!!! Well, there go those Hollywood dreams, sorta. They've got to get through the sudden death round in Las Vegas first...so so much for those golden tickets...
To start it off...Jenny is first, and I miss all but the judging (guess that's what I get for trying to get my dinner together before watching)...I'm guessing she did okay.
Next we're on to Teena. Nicki Minaj is telling Teena how her hair is making her look old....and Nicki's fix? Shave your head. Yep. Thankfully, Randy suugests away from that, because she'll probably be staying. All the judges really seem to like her...which they should at this point, right? I mean, all of the contestants at this point are those that the lovely judges have narrowed down as the cream of the 2013 American Idol crop.
Now we're on to the first semi-finalist from Alaksa...Adriana. ...
After some slice and dice...the top 40 have been chosen!

Well, that's what Randy leads with anyway..."we're ready to slice and dice baby"...alrighty then. Some of the groups definitely need to be sliced from the competition...I feel for the contestants at this point because they may be great alone, but just can't pull it together as a group to harmonize, get along...whatever their problem may be...and the lack of meshing for whatever reason came through on stage for a few of them...
Almost Famous is one that was particularly unfortunate...and they are all going home. And then there's the girls who write the lyrics (just in case they forget them) on their arms, hands...wherever...yeah, THAT is going to work really well. Oh, hold on judges...I gotta check mah hand on this one...oh, here we go...continue music. Luckily it didn't come to that for them.
On a brighter note, many of the groups were pretty good! A few of my favorites ...
Hollywood Week Begins!

Well, Hollywood week has begun. And all the Hollywood glamour (?...I’m using that term VERY losely)/pop culture references are present - Mariah Carey is in an evening gown/summer dress in the front ensemble (it’s like the reverse mullet of dresses)…diva-ing it up…and Keith Urban is comparing it to the Hunger Games. Joy! So…who kills who first? Which two eat the berries to fake their own deaths to win Idol! We want to know!
Okay, Hunger Games non-sensical references on my part aside, we get right to the firing squad line up where contestants are getting let go right on the spot after everyone in their line sings. I cannot even imagine how nerve wracking that would be. The first memorable person we see is Carl Skinner…because…they do a produced segment on him…drinking Coke. Wow. Product placement on contestants already? It mean’s Carl is gonna win. Oh wait. Nope, he’s just ...
