  2. This isn't really a writeup of this past week. I'll remain honest: I don't have any motivation to do it. Like I said last time, the Comeback plus the shortened season again plus the continual failure of ABC to develop the contestants has killed the season for me pretty hard. If this week had been better, I might be more interested. But it was a letdown of an episode. Nobody was terrible, nobody was really outstanding except maybe Grace, and I don't think it made much difference in the long term (lol) of the season. Disney Night has become emblematic of the flaws of ABC Idol:
  3. I don't think we're going to get indication of who's singing what until the performances, and there are quite a few which could be many different people. I'm cautiously optimistic for what I think Cassandra is doing (When You Wish Upon A Star), and if Casey is doing Into The Unknown it could go very well. I'm not feeling like Circle of Life is going to do anyone any favors. Made some comments on the three eliminations, but not extensive ones.
  4. 1. Which 7 singers will be voted by America to Top 7?

(20 points) - Chayce Beckham 4.
  5. I don't really have much motivation to talk about the departed at length to be honest. But I will say that, for all three, I think their elimination came down to my perpetual topics: Identity, and Song Choice. For Madison, even after 8 performances I really don't have a firm grasp on her. She did the singer-songwriter thing, she made some attempts at a current pop star performer, she belted old-school diva stuff. Over the course of the competition, she came across as someone who was trying to give the audience what they want, without first figuring out what they would want from
  6. Top 9 Ranking I’m going to be honest up front: I struggled to write this week. Part of that is I’m just personally having a stressful week, and don’t have a lot of energy to devote to this. But the double-barreled impact of finding out the season would be going back to mass eliminations, and the ridiculously poor handling of the Comeback episode, just takes a lot of the joy in this season for me. Which is pretty unfortunate, because this remains one of the strongest casts in the history of the show. But ABC continues to squander the wealth of talent they’ve repeatedly been prov

(10 points) - Grace 5. Which male singer will be announced first by Ryan Seacrest to move forward to Top 9
  8. I knew I was tempting fate by waiting to do song suggestions. Alyssa- This will be very hit or miss. If she can nail the vocal and the emotion, this could get her back some momentum. However, if she starts shrieking like most people who sing this live do (including the original singer), she’s dead in the water. Ava- I’m not sure about this. It’s a very subtle song, which has worked for Ava before, but it verges on boring. Could get lost in the shuffle. Beane- I actually think this could work out. It’s one of only 2-3 non-ballads, and it’s the only FUN one. It woul
  9. I don't really think she's BAD. She'd be a solid midcard in a lot of seasons. This one is just stacked.
  10. I don't think any of her song choices have been good. Not actively horrible (although her Oscar song might be), but not winning any points. If it were a single cut she could slide past an unexpected flop, but I don't think Hotline Bling really won anyone undecided over like Beane might have, and without that she's too far behind to survive a triple cut. Especially not with that song.
  11. Alright, Top 12 ranked. I will probably be back with song suggestions tomorrow (pretty late, but whatever). Have at it. ... How do I edit my footer? The defunct old links are making me sad.

  13. 1. Chayce Beckham (Previous Round 4), “What Brings Life Also Kills” by Kolton Moore and the Clever Few” I had a subconscious feeling that Chayce was a formidable competitor, but consideration of the long-term factors put those feelings into much more coherent form. In many ways he reminds me of Maddie, although it remains to be seen whether he can match her mastery of Idol strategy. Like her, while he is not a powerhouse vocalist like some of his competition, he is well within the expectations of his genre, and has been technically solid thus far. His Consistency is likely to be
  14. Top 12 Ranking Ok, contemplations with the Top 12 revealed. I’ve been thinking about this group a lot over the past few days. I’m actually extremely happy with the outcome overall. I don’t hate anyone in the Top 12 with a burning passion, which might be the first time ever in my Idol viewing experience. There are some who I don’t particularly care for in terms of style, and some who are slipping in my estimation as the competition goes on. But none of them are blatantly undeserving of being there like, say, Lazaro or Gianna. I’m sure there’s still time for at least
