American Idol Bulletin

For the first time ever, just as Anoop thought he was gone ... they're going for a top thirteen!

The top thirteen are:

Danny Gokey
Michael Sarver
Alexis Grace
Adam Lambert
Allison Iraheta
Kris Allen
Jorge Nunez
Lil Rounds
Scott McIntyre

Added in the Wild Card tonight:

Jasmine Murray
Megan Joy Corkrey
Matt Giraud
Anoop Desai

And ... poor Tatiana broke down when she didn't make it. A real shocker there, eh?

Thank goodness Tatiana is gone. I couldn't take much more of her dramatics.

I seriously thought Tatiana was going to do a fake "pass out on stage" move there for a minute. WHACKO QUACKO.

Overall, I'm happy with our top 13!

Even tho Tatiana has a good voice I'M SO GLAD SHE'S GONE!!!!!

I almost fell over when at first Anoop didn't make it. They really did a snow job on this guy from being the last one picked last week and then the thirteenth addition this week.

Sorry, but I don't care for Jasmine. She really does not carry the tune all the way through the song and that's hard on the ears.

Gotta run. Later

my wv is runno

I'm fairly pleased with the Top 13. I'm really glad they didn't take Tatiana and I'm even more thrilled that Simon called her out for singing the same song yet again.

My only disappointment would be Jesse Langseth. She wasn't great last night, but I had liked a lot of her previous songs, especially Bette Davis Eyes. I would have liked to see her move on and would easily have given up Jasmine or Megan for Jesse.

Kris Allen, Matt Giraud, not too memorable. Even though Lil has to be a frontrunner along with Danny, I don't see her as the winner. She's got the LaToya London, Tamyra Gray factor going against her.

Caroline, I agree. I'd have preferred Jesse to Jasmine. Jasmine is a cute girl, but the vocals are just not up to par with some of the others. My guess is that they were going after the younger audience with her.

If Tatiana had made it through, I think I'd have quit watching. Good voice, but keep your mouth shut when you aren't singing!

Overall, a fairly good group. I'm not so sure about Adam's chances after seeing the photos circulating on the internet. Why do kids put stuff online that will hurt their chances in life?

Megan is cute & quirky, but her version of "Black Horse & the Cherry Tree" didn't do much for me. I still remember Katharine McPhee's version! I would like to have seen Megan do one of Melanie Safka's old songs.

Hi everyone..

Thanks Jackie for all the updates!

I have a few favorites in the top 13 and am glad Anoop made it. You are so right MEB, they really put him through it. Does anyone else get the feeling that this isn't the last we will see of Tatiana?

Petals said...

OK, since I don't watch, can one of you please help: Is there any female left in the contest that is of any Latin or Hispanic-type decent? Anything brown? I have a bet with my lil brother... thanks.

Maybe Tatiana will connect with William Hung for a tour???

Anyone else as po'd as I was when I watched my DVR'd Idol after Survivor only to find it ran over the hour and I missed the final selections!!!!

All in all I hope we have a good season!!

SueGee -
Fox is notorious for shows that run over the hour. I ALWAYS set my recorder for at least 5 minutes extra to catch the endings. Seems like they run 2 - 3 minutes on a regular basis.

SueGee... Whatever I had taping after Idol caught the ending, so then I realized that that show would also run over the alloted time slot, so I quickly taped the next show, which I think was the news, but it worked out. Then I just deleted everything when it was finished. I know it's aggravating but what's a body to do!

I like that Jesse, she would be good singing songs like Jessi Colter sings.
