American Idol Predictions & What 2 Watch...

Last night's American Idol was yet another inconsistent, mixed bag of performances. Just like last week, the ladies are coming up short.

Chris Daughtry - "A-" - As I predicted, "Renegade" was great. Although the judges didn't like it, I thought Chris' version of "I Dare You" was very good. Most of his screaming was right on the money and on key. As an ex-singer, I was impressed!

Taylor Hicks - "B" - "Something" was probably the best performance of the night. As Simon correctly observed, "Funky" was yet another one of Taylor's "wedding singer" like performances.

Elliott Yamin - "B" - Two very solid performances. As usual, workman-like perfection with little flash and flair.

Katharine McPhee - "C-" - "Against All Odds" was absolutely terrible. It was mostly out of key and powerless. "Black Horse & Cherry Tree" was a decent outing but the song is just stupid.

Paris Bennett - "C-" - Paris' version of "Kiss" sounded like one of those generic remixes that you hear playing during an aerobics class. Awful. Lots of mousy dialog before her performance. It's time to go home!

The Bottom Three

* Elliot
* Katherine
* Paris

Actually, Chris was slightly out of tune on the first round of screaming high notes. He pulled it together for the high notes later on, but that's because he pulled back. Still was a fantastic outing.

Everyone else was just ok. Another night of boring performances; yes, even Taylor's seizures were boring last night.

But, seriously, Dolf, let's focus on the more important issue: Are you on Team Sheen or Team Richards?

I feel kinda silly making a recommendation to the master...

ShineDown has an awesome version of U2's "One" on StrippedMusic.com at:

GW,

Not bad.. A bit of a "copycat" performance.

I like the "Automatic Baby" (REM & U2) version from 1993 better.

Available here.

"awesome" and "U2" - two words I don't think should ever appear in the same sentence

Hey, I didn't say I thought I looked like him! Max said it... You can argue with him about it.

You can't be serious! Maybe they are a little kitschy now, but they were "awesome" in their prime!

'Team Gallagher' reference...

Max must see you in a much skinnier light. :)
