Idol March 7th “Eight Women Brawl” 3/8/06
The pressure continues tonight because two of these women will be
voted one-way tickets home. Here is a brief recap.
Tomboy Princess Paris continues to fire us up. With her new hair,
piercing eyes and robin egg blue dress, she sang and danced to our full
content. She is a total package.
Inspired by Jimmy Hendrix’s electric guitar, Lisa wasn’t quite
focused. She seemed to be working too hard and didn’t exude the flow
that we expected. She wobbled all over the last word of her song and could
not find her balance.
Five on the floor stick shifting Melissa was dressed in a cold
black vest with a sparkling diamond belly button stud. She woke us up. She
generated enough torque and excitement to blow a head gasket.
eating Kinnik was dull, flat and tired. It is way too late in this game to
play it safe. And tonight, playing it safe guarantees “you are out.”
singing and “I am not pregnant” Katherine is still in the race. She
has great voice control and she really enjoyed singing to us. But I just
don’t see myself watching her perform for 30 minutes. She is not that
weak tonight. Her words became lost and they almost were muted by the
background music. She actually sounded like a little girl and not the
powerful athlete that we love and admire.
Ah, the polished and dynamic voice of Mandisa has set the high
water mark for this contest. She is ready to go on tour, right now. This
woman is becoming our idol favorite.
Kellie’s lazy pet dog Comet may become the next Lassie because
this young vivacious, unpretentious singer is hot. She has the moves we
watch. She beckons to us and we follow. And when she performs, we dance.
She has the entire package of a sure winner.
I don’t think the American audience will have any real problem in
saying goodbye to two of the contestants. But after those adios, the
picking becomes more painful.
