 American Idol packs surprises into the Wild Card show curlio  
 2009-03-05 21:29:05       
Television American Idol rounded out the Top 12 tonight with a show full of horror and surprise. An action-packed one hour (plus a few minutes, but who was counting?) featured eight performances and lots of drama.

There was much to accomplish on the show tonight, so they go straight into the performances. First up is Jesse Langseth who is grateful for her second chance. She wants to show off her range so she performs "Tell Me Something Good." I just don't like her voice at all. Randy thinks it's an interesting song choice but isn't sure if she sang it well. Kara DioGuardi likes that she has swagger. Paula Abdul is impressed with her determination and tenacity. Simon Cowell thinks it is a lot better than the first time. He thought that the song and performance were a bit indulgent.

Matt Giraud picked "Who's Loving You" for his performance tonight. I loved him and thought he was great, in spite of the fact that he reminds me of Justin Timberlake (not a good thing). Kara thought it was a little over the top at points. Paula told him that he picked the perfect song. Simon hates what he was wearing and saw bits of Taylor Hicks coming through. At this the audience boos, which tells me that the audience knows that was an insult. Randy Jackson tells Matt that he made everyone worry that he would give them a run for their money.

Megan Joy Corkrey sang "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree" for her second chance. She sucked. There's no other word for it. That last note was horrific. The judges stumbled over each other in their attempts to fawn all over her though. Paula tells her she picked a song that fits her personality. Simon doesn't get a karaoke feeling from her and thinks she is terrific. Randy noted that it wasn't the best vocal, but the song choice was perfect. Kara says the competition needs her to give America some variety (they think we need crap?).

Von Smith chooses "Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word" for his performance. It wasn't great. Simon notes that it didn't start well. He thinks Von is becoming a bit boring. Randy believes it was too serious. Kara thinks it was dark more than serious. Paula says that Von is too concerned with the notes and technical parts to let his essence out.

Jasmine Murray sings "Reflection." She starts off a little rough but she gets better for the big notes. She lacks the consistency in the softer parts. Randy thinks she is 100% improved from the last time, though there were some flat spots. Kara is confused as she didn't know Jasmine had a big voice. Paula thinks she looks lovely. Simon thinks it was a great song choice and she put herself in the running.

Ricky Braddy picked "Superstitious". I like his voice. I think he just didn't get a fair chance because he didn't get the same air time as some of the others. Kara loves that he showed his personality. Paula likes the loosened up version of Ricky. Simon thinks it was karaoke and lightweight. Randy disagrees with the song choices

Tatiana Del Toro once again sang "Saving All My Love for You." She sucked. There was a lot of talking over the judges by Tatiana which I sort of blocked it out. Paula tells Tatiana that she grew an accent that Paula didn't know about (probably because it worked for Jorge). Simon points out that Tatiana has performed this song three times now and wonders if we'd get it next week if she goes through. Randy says there were some good moments and bad moments. Kara notes that this is a new personality.

Last up was Anoop Desai with "My Perogative." He was awesome. Simon tells him he isn't the best singer, but people like him and that's important. Randy thinks he did better with this song that he did the last time with it. Kara wanted to get up and dance. Paula likes that he is a showman.

Randy tells Jasmine that she is in the Top 12. Kara tells Ricky that he didn't make it back. Megan and Tatiana are told by Paula that Megan is in and Tatiana is out (huge sigh of relief). Simon tells Jesse that she is out. Von is also out. So we are down to Anoop and Matt. Simon tells Matt that he is through. Screams of horror abound as Simon tries to talk to Anoop. He manages to tell Anoop that they recently decided to make this a Top 13 this year. I'm still not sure my heart is beating again. That was just MEAN!

So our Top 13 is:
Allison Iraheta
Danny Gokey
Michael Sarver
Alexis Grace
Kris Allen
Adam Lambert
Scott MacIntyre
Lil Rounds
Jorge Nunez
Jasmine Murray
Megan Corkrey
Matt Giraud
Anoop Desai

Random thoughts:

1. I've taken my pulse, my heart is still in failure after that last twist.

2. I actually picked up the chopstick I use to scratch my leg inside my cast to stab myself in the ear drums twice tonight. I think I yelled at the TV four times, and only one of those was Tatiana. I'm thinking of making an appointment with my doctor next week to request some pills to make me not want to kill myself when the judges bicker. Does anyone have suggestions?

3. Admit it, how many of you were plotting a trip to California to end our suffering if Tatiana made it through? She is so fake! Everything she does is drama.

Oh, and I have an announcement! We have decided to have a prediction contest this year. Every week we will award points for correct predictions. To be in consideration for the contest, you need to be a member of Curlio.com as the predictions will have to be posted on our webboard (currently only open for members, thus the membership requirement.). The winner at the end of the season of American Idol will be given a $50 gift certificate to Amazon. Yes, you're eligible even if you don't live in the U.S. More details will be announced over the weekend.

Judges Translations:

Not the best Vocal:
Can's sing one bit, but we already we already selected you for the competition anyway.

You can Sing but it was self indulgent:
Our bosses don't want you in the competition.

You can sing but youre personality isn't coming out:
We don't want you in this competition.

You can sing but the song was a little lightweight:
We already chose who is going and you're not going.

This is going to be tough:
You probably should be chosen but, once again, we've already chosen.

We're going to make this a top 13: We and America have already screwed up on this one.

When it came down to the last 3 tonight I was going to scream because I thought for sure they would pick Jesse to even it out with 6 girls. When they didn't I was still upset because I thought both Anoop and Matt deserved to make it. I was so happy Matt made it (he is my favorite) and smiled when they picked Anoop as well.

Wonder if they will add a week to the schedule or eliminate two next week. Will be interesting.

I really think the producers wanted Tatiana, but singing the same song 3 times and (cough, cough) changing her personality was just too much......Thank our lucky stars we don't have to put up with her.

Count me in on the contest.

thanks read...i would say that's right on the money (you could switch some of the 'you're not in' comments around, but essentially it's no difference).

I do not like anybody yet. Matt Giraud I hope goes in the first round. Self indulgent is putting it mildly. Michael Sarver the second. Anoop is fun, keep him around a while. Alexis could be the next Kelly Clarkson, except for the fact that her voice is 1/5 times as good (which doesn't mean she sucks, just that Kelly is pure perfection). Allison is going to have a rough going I think..'Alone' was not particularly good, all the other girls were just horrible that week. Blind guy, no offense, is no good. Jorge is good, let's hope he can pull off a surprise run. Danny..I'm still not sure about...I imagine a Elliott Yamin, but not as good of a singer. Kris is cute, maybe he will be good with his guitar. Lil' Rounds has a big voice..but I haven't seen originality yet..at least Fantasia had her god-awful 'ya, ya, yah's and duck voice. Adam just scares me. Andd Jasmine is cute, reminds me of Vonzell from Season 3. Megan sucked both times I heard her..she massacred KT Tunstall's song tonight.

The main thing is how excited I was to see that they were having a top 13!!! And that was mean to have Anoop think he didn't make it!!! And especially how they told him how great and perfect he was after his performance! And I loved it when he cried afterward!!! And I'm glad Matt made it because I liked him too!
And I'm glad it isn't equal boys and girls!

And I was also very happy that Tatiana didn't make it!!! And it was funny as heck when Simon asked her why she sang the same song 3 times!!! And even funnier after she lost when Paula told her she could be an actress!!!

It was also a good thing that I was watching AI live... because the show went on more than 5 minutes longer, and if people set it up for 1 hour they wouldn't know who won.
My tivo is set up for 5 minutes longer and it still cut off before they said the results of Anoop and Matt.
So I'm sure alot of people will be saying they didnt see the end because it didn't record long enough.

My top favorites for next week are:
Allison
Danny
Adam
Lil
Jorge
Matt
Anoop

winona1717,

You are right about the show going longer. I was watching the show just now, I used my DVR to record it earlier, and right after we lost that whacko tatiana, my DVR stopped recording. I was so pissed. I was praying Anoop got in. There's something about that guy that I really like. He's cool. So, that's why I am on here now, instead of being in bed, cause I had to make sure Anoop made it through.... and he did. So, goodnight!

For all the shows I record that I know go over regularly (any WWE show, American Idol) that I'm not going to watch live, I will set my DVR to record x minutes over. Most DVRs have this feature and while I'm perfectly happy to have people turn here to join us in our discussion, I would recommend adding 15 minutes to your AI recording from now on. With the addition of Kara, my guess is that we're going to have run overs often.

I think I've decided on Xanax to keep me from throwing objects at my TV when the judges bicker.

So glad that Anoop made it in. That was such a mean trick though! I think Jasmine definitely redeemed herself and showed she can sing.

I'm just not sure how I feel about the top 12 as a whole...there's a bunch I don't care for (i.e. Adam - what is it about him I can't stand??, Kris) and a bunch I feel meh about. There's really no one that I love at this point and am super-excited to hear them sing. Maybe that's one drawback to doing the semi-finals this way, I don't know! 
 
 
So our tragedy is your good luck. Satan.

To quote the song that's playing right now, I second that emotion! Normally at this point we've seen everyone in the Top 12 perform three times. Now we're headed into the Top 1213 having heard only one performance from nine of them and an extra half a performance from the other four. I have a couple that I'm looking forward to liking - Adam, Danny, Anoop, Allison, but no real favorite at this point.

I didn't agree with the judges decision to bring back Jasmine as part of the wild card eight, but based on last night's performance she deserves to be in the final 13.

It is much too early to pick a front runner, but I am keeping an eye on Allison Iraheter, Lil Rounds and Jorge Nunez.

I agree.. because you can't get to know the performers like when they had the 12 boys and 12 girls performing every week until they are voted off down to the top 12.

I'm not super excited to hear anyone sing at this point (besides Nick/Norman!) Some of the performers I was excited to hear again didn't make it to the top 36 (like Michael Castro).

It's a good thing they didn't do the top 36 last year, because David Cook would have never made it. He took a few weeks to get my attention, which was when he sang "Hello", after that I knew he was hot.

So I'm waiting to see if someone will surprise us this season.
