AI- Top 16 Guys

The men weren't quite as good this week as last, though there were some standouts, and we saw the return of Totally Looped Paula, which is worth the hour, all by itself. The 80's were an iffy decade musically, and we got ample proof tonight.

Luke Menard's voice is thin, and not particularly pleasing, and though he did okay with his Wham-Fest, making us think of George Michael may not have been the best way to go-go (yeah, I had to).

I am becoming more and more enchanted with David Archuleta's voice. I know he's The Chosen One, and I should dislike him on general principle, but I just can't. He's not Taylor. And he's not Clay, but I like him a lot, and his arrangement of Another Day in Paradise was really interesting.

Danny Noriega Sanjayaed himself through Tainted Love, and rendered Paula even more incoherent than she'd been, which was plenty.

David Hernandez has a lovely voice but all I could think about was boogers (and male strippers).

Once again, I am unimpressed with Michael Johns, but I like him better than David Cook, who annoys me just by existing, I guess, though I did chuckle at his take on hard-rocking Lionel Ritchie (and I'm sorry, but I just don't believe that Simon shops for his own carrots).

There is something about Jason Castro- his voice is very interesting (I mean that in a good way), and I got a total Shrek Flashback from his Hallelulia (I mean that in a good way too). If it wasn't that I am pretty certain that they keep a tight reign on the kids' recreational activities, I would bet the farm that he's been sneaking some of Paula's stash.

I'm not sure what I think about Chikezie's song- it wasn't awful, but it wasn't nearly as good as last week's performance.

If I was voting, I'd throw a few to Jason Castro because I'm a little worried about him hanging in there.

Who will probably go home? A combo of Luke Menard, Chikezie, or David Hernandez .

Who should go home? And stay there? Paula
80's song I want to hear most tomorrow night? Walk Like an Egyptian

Now, see, I thought this week was MUCH better than last week. Though perhaps that's because I am a child of the 80s, and was enjoying the songs (aside from Danny's messed up Tainted Love, and anything performed by Celine Dion).

I'm more and more entranced by David A. and Jason. I think I'd buy an album by Jason tomorrow.

Although I can generally take him or leave him, I loved David C's version of Hello.

I'm guessing that Danny and Luke are out, unless VFTW gets going strong, in which case it's Luke and Chikezie, probably.

Why couldn't it be Michael Johns? Why???

I'm... ahem... older than you, lisabee... the 60's and 70's were My Time, so those shows resonated with me a lot more. That said, I really did love David A's and Jason's songs.

I don't know what it is about David C, but I just want him to go home. And Michael Johns, but I suspect we're stuck with him for much of the duration.

I should have phrased that more like the 80's were My Time. So you're not *that* much older than I am. Just sandwiched between me and my mother.

But whatever the ages are, I enjoy sharing Idol with you. ;)
