Also: Go, Miami!
So many people I liked. And I’m not a people-liker.
Ghaleb Emacheh has a lovely voice and style. While I don’t think he’s Idol material, he should definitely have a record contract.
Love (love!) Corliss Smith. (Take Five) She’s my very favorite so far. Also her pal Brittany Wescott, but to a lesser degree.
I understood what Simon was saying about tiny Ramiele Malubay. Yes, she has a good voice, but it’s the huge voice coming out of her tiny frame that makes her so noticeable. She’s like the female Clay Aiken. Only not.
Natashia Blach (At Last) was also glorious, and I liked Ilsy Lorena Pinot (Unfaithful - you know, the more I hear of Rihanna, the more I really like her) too.
I think I sort of liked the guy who did Simple Man, but I can’t decide if I just like that song (as opposed to the singer). Or if I just like simple men.
Sixteen year olds with facial piercings need different parents. But I guess parents who put you on tv at twelve are probably a given for lax household rules. Why does she look 30? Sad.
No one should ever do Janis Joplin. Ever. Or anyone else who screams instead of singing. But maybe that’s an IQ test.
Other: (1) Jasmine Trias’s album went platinum in the Philippines?! (2) Who in the hell would name a movie “Jumper,” prior to 2101? That word already has a meaning for us, thanks. *shudder*
