  1. Here’s my opinion of the solos based on watching them a second time: 1. Kimmy: her duet may not have been great, but her solo sure was great! 2. Genavieve: she sure wasn’t being cut in the solo round after that performance! 3. Jovin: maybe not my cup of tea, but he sang the heck out of that song! 4. Perrin: apparently a risky song choice, but she made it work. 5. Faith: a little screechy for me, but she was still good enough to move on. 6. Jeb: I love the song, and he was good enough to move on. 7. Arthur: smart idea to do a different rendition of his audition song. And he proved he could adjust on the fly. Fine job! 8. Montage of bad original song choices: Robert and Amelia apparently didn’t realize that not all original songs are good enough. Julia, next time, remember what you’re supposed to sing! But at least all three of them moved on, unlike Jimmy, whose song caused Luke to face palm! 9. Lauren Mascitti: now this is how you perform an original song! And better yet for me, it appealed to my Christian views of being a woman! Great job! 10. Sophia & Sarah: wow! Sophia really knocked “Somewhere” out of the ball park! Sarah was better than in her duet, but apparently not good enough to move on. 11. Kat: well, at least she outlasted her boyfriend. Just not good enough. 12. Franklin: he’s certainly a better singer than Alejandro. Good job. 13. Just Sam: despite a sore throat, the show must go on. And after her solo, the show is certainly going on for her! And I may have my favorite for the season! 14. Montage of train wrecks: Marcus gave up, and you never give up on stage! Sheniel at least didn’t forget the lyrics, but she wasn’t much better. At least Talin had a sense of humor, but his performance wasn’t so funny for him. And Ari was a disaster too! As for Nick, he’s lucky he was able to move on, unlike the others. 15. Makayla Brownlee: whoa! I’m glad that she was able to get medical attention for her heart condition. And I’m glad that she did well enough to move on! 16. Camry: she certainly did well enough to move on to the Showcase round. 17. Devon: did well enough to move on to the Showcase round. 18. Lauren Spencer- Smith: she really did a great job with an unusual song choice. 19. Dillon: not really my cup of tea, but he sang it well enough. 20. Louis: Considering the fact that he was performing on his dead friend’s birthday, he did quite well! 21. Montage of “I Wanna Dance With Somebody”: Cyniah probably is the best vocalist. But Olivia and even Geena were fine performers, though Olivia had an advantage by being a dancer. YZTHASINGER was the worst and that’s probably why he was the only one of these four to be cut. 22. Makayla Phillips: a risky song choice that might have got her cut. She’s a little lucky that she moved on. 23. Margie & Jonny: Jonny did a good enough job to move on, but either Margie wasn’t able to perform well enough or her performance was too little, too late. Anyway, Sam & Cyniah are probably my favorites at this point.
  2. This might help us when live voting comes about.

  4. After watching the duets twice, here’s my comments on them: 1. Louis & Francisco: I’m glad that Louis tried to help Francisco out, but Francisco has major insecurities. He’s lucky that the judges moved him forward along with Louis,,who certainly deserved to move forward. 2. Franklin & Jordan M.: I didn’t see much of Jordan Moyes, so I don’t know why he was cut, but Franklin seemed to be good enough to move on. 3. Marcus & Natalie: don’t know if Natalie moved on or not, but I know that Marcus moved on to the solo round and I think he deserved to. 4. Lauren Jean & Molly: They were solid. Not great, perhaps, but not a train wreck. 5. Lauren Mascitti & Leon: I think Lauren was better. 6. Cameron & Ren: I’m surprised that Ren didn’t move on, as she was vocally better than Cameron. But it’s not a contest to find the best singer, and apparently the judges thought she sacrificed connection for power. 7. Grace & Hannah: well, we got to see why Hannah failed to move on, and it appears that she was outshone by Grace in performance skills. Maybe next year for her and Cranberrys. 8. Jimmy & Nick: some duet partners are too different to blend well. Not here. I think Nick was a tad better than Jimmy, though. 9. Isa & Olivia: they both had huge voices yet they showed how two powerful singers can avoid trying to outdo each other. Fine job! 10. Demi & Michael: synergy was a good name for them, but I think Demi was a little bit better. 11. Madison & Peyton: what a comedy of errors! And most if not all of it was Peyton’s fault! At least he recognized that he fouled up and apologized to Madison. It probably saved him and maybe Madison as well. 12. DeWayne & Jordan J.: as Randy Jackson once noted, “Song choice, song choice, song choice.” Song choice is key, and they picked a fine song for them. 13. Courteney & Zack: and they didn’t, thanks to indecision and lack of preparation, especially on Zack’s part. And then Zack just gave up during the duet. What a train wreck! It was worse than Lazaro’s meltdown during his trio in Season 12, and nowhere near as funny. Poor Courtney. 14. YZthasinger & Aliana: they certainly connected well, although it’s a pity for YZ that Aliana has a boyfriend. But their chemistry helped them move on. 15. Faith & Jovin: another duet with a great connection. Their southern roots helped them out here. 16. Landen & Perrin: nervous? They sure didn’t seem that way, with a performance good enough to move on. 17. Genavieve & Travis: I wonder if Genavieve was thinking of her sister when she sang this song. Regardless, she and Travis did well enough to move on. 18. Alyssa & Jeb: don’t know why Jeb moved on while Alyssa was cut, since I saw so little of their performance. 19. Alex & Kat: Kat outshone Alex, and that’s why he failed to move on. 20. Jonny & Margie: maybe they should have split up and gone with different partners. It stressed Jonny out. But at least they did well enough to move on. 21. Cyniah & Makayla P.: Cyniah took the right approach to working with Makayla, and it paid off with perhaps the best duet of the round. Great job! 22. Elyjuh & Kimmy: they seemed to do a fine enough job to move on, but I think Kimmy is better. 23. Dillon & Evan: they also seemed to do well enough to move on. 24. Lauren Spencer-Smith and Makayla B.: another fine performance where they matched well enough to move on. 25. Robert & Tito: sometimes, too much really is too much! At least, it was for Tito. 26. Just Sam & Sheniel: Sheniel was another fine partner and the medic helped Sam, and the help paid off for Sam! I think that Cyniah and Makayla Phillips had the best duet while Courtney and Zack had the worst.
  5. No, it isn’t. I don’t think the whole thing’s a hoax, and wgm is guilty of wishful thinking to think otherwise. I just think they’ll resume production, if not for a couple of months.
  6. No, nobody here can say for sure that the show will be back, but I’m hoping that it will, and you’re sounding very pessimistic about it resuming production.
  7. No, I don’t think he’ll run away with the win. Arthur is talented, but so many other singers are talented too.
  8. Yeah. I still think the show will return, but nowhere near as early as wgm seems to think. He’s a victim of wishful thinking, if anyone here is one. I think it’ll return in the summer, at the earliest.

  14. It just explains why I haven’t watched the episodes yet. I have the American Idol app, however, so I probably will watch the episodes beginning on Thursday night.
