Wow! There was some good performances tonight, though I was surprised how many people picked songs from Disney movies...and Celine Dion songs no less
George: how disappointing. I really like him, but that song was NOT a good choice. Just no energy, no Huff-ness.
Jennifer: Very good. I like her and I think she is getting better and better as QT said. I liked what Simon said about the voodoo doll...hee.
Diana: I agree with QT again. She sang the song fine, but I don't really care. There's no soul there. But someday I think it will be for her.
JPL: Ugh. I have never understood the appeal of JPL. He would be a mediocre karaoke singer. Actually he's worse than most of the karoake singers I used to hear when I frequented karaoke bars. He always sound off key and weak and...ugh...I could go on, but I won't.
John or Baby Conan
: I actually like Red. I don't think he's Idol material and he's had some horrendous performances recently. Tonight he was OK...just OK and soooo safe. He should go soon because I don't think I can take another bad performance by him.
Jasmine: OK, pretty, but not great.
Latoya: A beautiful, strong performance. She doesn't "wow" me though.
Fantasia: Wow, wow, wow! That is one of my favorite songs and I've never, ever heard anyone besides Joplin NOT butcher it. It was a beautiful, soulful, original cover. I wasn't sure I liked Fantasia and her attitude, but when the tears started flowing...
I loved QT as a guest judge. He was a little less harsh than I expected though. He's so funny.
My DH was once mistaken for Quentin Tarentino at a Cubs game in Minnesota (I think that's the team??). It was a year after Pulp Fiction came out. DH was sitting there with his little brother (he was in Big Brothers/Big Sisters) and this guy comes up to him and says "I loved your film, man. You're f!!#$# brilliant. The cast was amazing, man. John Travolta. Uma Thurman. I won't ask for an autograph...*stammer, stammer, stammer*." My very innocent, unworldly DH (esp. at that time) had NO IDEA. He's never even heard of Pulp Fiction, much less QT. It was months later that he pieced it together. And yes, he does bear some resemblence to him...some...
DH has NEVER seen one of his movies, though...
