I TRIED THIS SHOW AGAIN
THINKING "MAYBE IT WON'T SUCK THIS TIME"
"MAYBE IDOL WILL LET THE GUYS BE TALENTED THIS TIME"
"MAYBE HARRY CONNICK JR IS AS AWESOME AS EVERYONE SAYS HE IS"
BUT I'M THREE SINGERS IN AND I HAVE NEVER BEEN MORE BORED IN MY ENTIRE LIFE
I CAN'T DO IT
I DON'T CARE ENOUGH TO KEEP GOING
I CAN'T GO THROUGH ANOTHER BORING-ASS SEASON
SO I'M DONE
and i leave you with some actual talent, the 2012 company of the book of mormon at the tony awardsRead more >
I'll be tossing in some favorite Idol moments in here because reasons. Let's start with:
Honorable Mention Favorite Idol Moment: Adam Lambert's "Ring of Fire". I didn't watch Adam's season (I'd quit at that point). But VFTW said it was awesome and reminiscent of the pre-Idol Adam they'd seen on YouTube. And it was pretty freaking cool.
8:02 PM - They're all singing "Glad You Came". I've forgotten most of their names.
8:03 PM - One of the guys was trying to overmelisma the song but his microphone was off.
8:04 PM - Bo Bice is in the audience. Remember him?
8:10 PM - The Band Perry is performing. Who the fuck are they?
8:11 PM - Blonde bland country girl is singing with them. Can't remember her name.
8:15 PM - Wait, Idol is actually acknowledging the fact…

Furious Face Candice - "I (Who Have Nothing)" by Shirley Bassey
Candice started a capella but gave pretty much the same performance as last time, misinterpreting the song to be angry and oversinging it to the point where she actually gave me a headache.
Grade: FAIL. Not the best song to reprise, especially if she interpreted it wrongly again.
ROUND THREE WINNER: Kree.
SEASON WINNER: Candice.
Instead of giving a short recap of the finale results, I'm going to recap the whole finale results show.
One last video. Let's end where we started, shall we?
See you tonight.

One final down, two more to go.
This week the girls sang three songs. There has not been a single performance night that lasted only an hour. I miss the one hour shows. They didn't make me wish for sweet death.
I'm on a Game of Thrones high, so there will be random quotes here and there.
Kree the JanitorRead more >
Jimmy Iovine's Choice: "Fuckin' Perfect" by P!nk
This was such a fucking weird song choice for Kree, especially since I knew she wouldn't swear. I honestly feel that the version with the swearing is a lot more heartfelt and sincere. Kree seemed very nasally and flat, and she fudged up the words twice. Overall, the performance was lackluster. P!nk sings the shit out of this song every time. I feel like Kree didn't even try.
Nicki said the quality o…
Sorry for the confusion. Apparently, I made it seem in my last sign-off that I would not be returning to recap this week. Fear not, readers. I am here and I have my opinions ready.
So this week's theme is "Songs From Now and Then", which means one hit song from this year and one standard song from the Great American Songbook. I looked up what exactly the Great American Songbook was and it's mostly ballads. UGH.
What will probably be sung:
- Fly Me to the Moon
- Over the Rainbow
- You'll Never Walk Alone
- Call Me Irresponsible
- Night and Day
- The Way You Look Tonight
- Moon River
- Georgia On My Mind
- I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm
- Stormy Weather
- It Had to Be You - if someone fucking sings this, I'm gonna throw something

What I hope will be sung but probably won't …
