How do I begin this post? First, let me say, that the fact that they had Andrew Lloyd Webber last night makes me wish I had auditioned and was good enough to be around and sing with him. I LOVE his music. ALL of it! I'll be honest, I almost wish they had either done it earlier in the season, or had the contestants do two songs, because I was disappointed that we only heard 6 songs.
I think if I got to sing in the that particular week, I would pick "Unexpected Song" from Song and Dance. It's so beautiful. I couldn't find a free recording of it or I would post it. There are soooo many others that I love, too, though
That said, here is the shocker of the week. Brace yourselves, (Motherboard, you might fall off your chair)
I think I might be moving over the dark side of David Cook fanism. Last night, he was amazing! He proved to me that the boy can sing! I liked him better, than as the rocker he's been, despite Simon's comment to the contrary. I never thought I'd say this, but I actually liked him last night.
Althought I do have to say, the I still LOVE David Archuleta the best. He was definitely the most original, turning "Think of Me" into a pop song. At first, I was nervous because I love that song so much, but he definitely pulled it off!
Now, sadly, I have to mention Brooke White. She has been my favorite through out the competition. I love her folky style. I think if I were ever to grow younger and audition for Idol, she would be the one I would compare myself to. But, I think, that the competetion has become too big for her. She lets her nerves show every week, and although I still love her voice and her style, I think it's catching up to her. I don't know if she'll last much longer...I wouldn't be surprised if she goes home tonight. It's either her, or the dreds guy...Jason...what's his name?
