I was surprised they cut Michael too. I mean, OK, he didn't impress them, but the young red-haired guy, John, didn't impress me that much. I thought Michael was better.
When Nicole (scooter girl), Amy (with the pink hair), Lana and Sara (the girl that Simon liked) came out and did their bit, I thought that Nicole definitely should be doing stage shows. The other girl started singing and her voice was kind of soft but good, then Amy started up and sounded like Celine Dion to me, then Lana tanked. Amy was criticized as also being too Broadway, but I didn't think so. I don't care for Celine Dion, but she is definitely considered a pop diva. It was funny that Amy sang a Celine Dion song as it definitely played up to her strengths. I thought Nicole did a great job changing her image and definitely sounded more pop to me in her solo, but then they criticized her. But then Randy and Paula really liked the Bulgarian girl and I didn't think she was that good. The thing about Nicole is that she is kind of strange looking with the white hair, white face and bright red lipstick.
What was up with that Meleana chick? At least Briana could admit she had nothing in common with her group, but she put in the work. Meleana just totally ditched her two group mates.
Jennifer Hudson and Fantasia both forgot their words in the group, but they did it with style. I'm surprised that Simon hasn't told Jennifer to lose weight yet.
OK, so who made it? I tried to go to the Fox website, but they haven't updated it yet so I'll rewatch the end and see if I can figure it out. Matt (football guy), the girl in the elevator, John (the red-haired 16 year old), Lisa Wilson (pool girl), John Peter Lewis (the pen salesman), the Roman brothers, Elizabeth (stretchy leg girl), Lisa Leuschner, Amy (pink hair), Jennifer (cruise ship), Fantasia (lips), Briana, Diana DeGarmo (pink and black girl) were among those who made it.
George, Nicole, Alan, Sarah Silva, Kira and I think the other Sara got cut.
The 8 singing next week: Fantasia Barrino, Diana Degarmo, Jennifer Hudson, Marque Lynch, Matthew Metzger, Ashely Thomas, Erskine Walcott and Katie Webber.
I don't know why I watch this show. It's a time sucker. Not the actual watching of it, the talking about it afterwards. :LOL
