American Idol Top 5

So we are down to the Top 5, with only three weeks left, it has flown by.

Before I even get to the Contestants, who let Paula wear the lavender lipstick that she wears every single week with that red dress.

Kris Allen - “The Way You Look Tonight” - I loved Kris. He is adorable. He is mesmerizing when he sings. I think he will be safe.

Allison Iraheta - “Someone To Watch Over Me” - I really did not like her this week, I was wondering if I heard the same performance as everyone else. It was hard to understand her this week, she did not pronunciate her words, at least not on my TV. LOL

Matt Giraud - “My Funny Valentine” - I thought he was OK, nothing spectacular. He will more than likely be in the bottom 3.

Danny Gokey - “Come Rain or Come Shine” - Awesome... He looked great, sounded amazing, very proud of him.

Adam Lambert - “It’s A New Day” - Well he was not Mr. Buble by any means. But I think he did well. I will admit Adam is extremely dramatic and although his taste is not mine, he is one of the most talented singers in the competition this year.

So I think tonight the bottom 2 will more than likely be Matt and Allison.

My top three still remain as Kris, Danny and Adam. Can't wait until tonight...

Only for a Sister.......

On Friday 24th, I chose to take the day off from my desk job to spend the day with my sister Heather. I have to say when she told me that she was chosen to be co-chair of this years Annual Daddy Daughter Dance at her girl's school, we were so excited. I know Heather is a great planner, so I knew it would be so much fun.
This years theme was "The STARS come out". I have loved hearing about all the plans for what seems like many moons, now. LOL The day she mentioned building our on balloon archs, I knew I had to be there.

So on Friday I arrived at the school 9:30ish in the morning, with breakfast in hand. (Aren't I a great big sister). We (Heather and I) and an occasional helper here and there transformed the gym into a STARRY night in Charlotte, in about 6 hours. I never knew how much fun building a star balloon arch for all the little girls and their daddies to walk through, or the 6, 9 ft (at least) tall balloon arches that created the dance floor could be. It was a lot of hard work but so much fun. So enough talking here are pictures of our fun day and the three little princesses I did it for.

Aren't they precious....

"It won't be like this for long"

I just finished wathing this video on Kelly's blog and had to add it to mine. I have always loved Darius Rucker. This song is so true, as I look at my 12 year old daughter and how much she has changed. Through good times and hard times we need to remember "It won't be like this for long". I hope you enjoy...

American Idol Final 7 Bottom 3

Last night with no saves left Lil Rounds was the first one to go.

My daughter was very sad is Lil was her favorite.

Anoop Desai also saw his fate last night.

Also in the bottom 3 was Allison Iraheta.

We will have to wait until next week to see how she does with the Standards.

I thought that David Archuleta's performance of "Touch My Hand" was really cheesy. He has never been my favorite, and last night he did not impress me in the least.

American Idol - Top 7 "AGAIN"

Lil Rounds - “I’m Every Woman” - It was OK, not her strongest, though I think she can sing I do not think she has the originality.

Kris Allen - “She Works Hard For The Money” - "Brilliant" enough said...

Danny Gokey - “September” - I thought he did well. I agree with Simon he needs to work the stage more. He will be safe.

Allison Iraheta - “Hot Stuff” - I did not like it. She is 16 and I would like to see her act it. She is probably safe but not in my top 3 so I would not be heart broken if she was in the bottom 2.

Adam Lambert - “If I Can’t Have You” - I loved seeing I dare say the softer side of Adam. He was great. He will be safe.

Matt Giraud - “Stayin’ Alive” - I did not like the performance and I felt last week that they wasted the save, tonight I still feel that way. He should have gone home last week.

Anoop Desai - “Dim All The Lights” - Started out good, but went down hill. He may be in the bottom 3.

It is a toss up for me in the bottom 3, I think Matt and Lil will more than likely go home.

My top 3 are Kris, Adam and Danny.
The men are on fire this week and all 3 are different.
Can't wait to see what happens tonight.

Pray for a MIRACLE

American Idol

My daughter and I watch American Idol every week.
Here are my thoughts:

Alison Iraheta - “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing” - I think she sounded like she was screaming. I didn’t love it.

Anoop Desai - “Everything I Do I Do For You” - I have never really liked Anoop and I have to say he was really good last night.

Adam Lambert - “Born To Be Wild” - It was very rock. I still like Adam and think he will be in the top 3. I was not crazy about the performance but it was Adam all the way.

Matt Giraud - “Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman” - He is in trouble. I will be surprised if he is still in the competition after this performance. It started off OK, but in the middle he lost control and never really got it back. I think he is going home tonight.

Danny Gokey - “Endless Love” - I love Danny I thought he was very heartfelt last night.

Kris Allen - “Falling Slowly” - LOVED IT.

Lil Rounds - “The Rose” - This song takes me back to my childhood days in TX. I love this song. I thought she did well, though it was not her best performance.

All in all I enjoyed this week. I think that Matt is the one going home.
