OK.....here are my thoughts on the final day of Hollywood Week:
*Angela Martin -- I'm not a big fan of hers, but I really liked her rendition of "American Boy"
*I LOVED "Brick House" -- this guy is one of my favs
*Jermaine -- I didn't really care for his "Man in the Mirror" and then to slam the band was a real bonehead move. Too bad, because I usually really like him.
*Siobhan -- I thought she rocked "Livin' for the City"
*Crystal -- "If it Makes you Happy" was not her best work
*Alex -- now, I really don't care for this kid but he did a great rendition of Jason Mraz "I'm Yours"
*Big Mike -- did the same song as Alex, with a bit of a soul vibe, which I loved
*Todrick -- also did the same song with an R&B feel.......and it was great too.
I LOVED ALL THREE VERSIONS OF THIS SONG!!!!!
*Thaddeus -- I thought his "Man in the Mirror" was the best of the night
*Charity did a fantastic job
*Mary -- "Hot & Cold" wasn't super to me. I think she is probably in trouble.
*Hope -- she sang Daughtry's "Home" and I thought it was absolutely horrid.
*Aaron -- I was so sad that he forgot the words to "Angel". I really like his voice, and he seems like such a sweet kid.
*Ashley -- her rendition of "Battlefield" was fantastic. (I have to try singing that one)
*Janell -- sang "Love Story". She forgot her words, and I don't really think her voice did the song any justice. It really didn't suit her.
So when it came time to the dividing of rooms, I knew that room one would make it. I was sad to see that the singing cop was in room two. I really liked him.
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~THE FINAL CUT~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
*Big Mike -- definately deserved to go through.
*Didi -- I really could have gone either way with her, but she'll probably be pretty good
*Katelyn -- I think the judges got this one wrong. I dont' think she should have made it.
*Shelby -- I'm sad she didn't make it. I would have taken her over Katelyn
*Casey -- this guy grew on me throughout Hollywood week. I'm glad he made it.
*Aaron -- YAY! I didn't think they'd take him after he forgot his lyrics. I'm really glad they gave him another chance.
*Lee -- I think I could have gone either way with this guy too. He was kind of forgettable.
*Todrick -- sooooo happy this guy made it. Love, love LOVE him.
*Jessica -- she should have just left with grace. What she did was tacky.
*Janell -- I'm glad she made it. She has a really unique sound.
*Tyler -- I was a little suprised that he made it. He has great stage presence, but not a super strong voice.
*Lacy -- she's another one with an interesting voice, but I wasn't completely sold on her.
*Ashley -- I don't remember her audition. How did she make it?
*Alex -- this is another mistake, in my opinion. I don't think he's that good.
*Joe -- another one who's audition I don't remember.
*Crystal -- I like her voice, but I hope that they bleach her distractingly yellow teeth.
*Katie -- I love this girl. She is so sweet. I'm glad she made it.
*Angela Martin -- I'm kinda glad she didn't make it. I really don't care for her voice.
*Lilly -- I love her jazz style voice, but that hair color needs to go
*Paige -- I don't remember her
*Siobhan -- I liked her...glad she made it.
*Michelle -- I don't remember her either
*Jermaine -- I'm still kind of on the fence with him. He's had some good stuff, but I haven't been impressed with everything.
*John -- Glad he made it. Even though he struggled a big in Hollywood, I like his sound.
*Hayley --I think they made the wrong choice putting her through. I think she's going to get really annoying really quickly.
*Thaddeus -- I'm kinda sad for him. He was great!
*Andrew -- LOVE this guy. I think he'll be great.
*Somewhere in there I forgot to mention Tim. I don't remember him. But he made it too.
So there you have it folks.......I really think it's going to be an interesting season. There are good singers on both sides, but I think the men may have a slight edge this year. What do you think?
