Why oh why did Anoop sing that song? Didn't they ever listen to the judges (and to every one else) about the importance to choosing the right song? I am getting anxious about his chances of staying in the show. On a positive note, however, he is not the only one who "sucked" tonight, IMHO. Megan was so-so too. And Lil wasn't really outstanding. I'm glad Adam was his usual self.

Oh my goodness, I am here ranting about AI. I know I should get a life. I better sign off here so I could get me a life.

Happy April Fools day tomorrow.

Today, I learned how to lay out tiles. Hubs and I attended the hour-long free demo workshop at Home Depot. We had to wake up earlier than we normally do on a Saturday, but I thought it was worth it. I even found the workshop interesting; I also found myself fielding questions. Now, all we need is a house and I can redo the bathroom :)

No this is not a weekly blog. But it starts to look like it. Anyhoo, my week had been well, good, ordinary, and nothing special. However, I can now breathe a sigh of relief after learning the reasons for my worries. It's always better to find what's on the other side of the closed door, good or bad, it's better to know than guessing what could be there. I'm glad I opened the door and found out what's behind it. It's not all good, but it's not bad either.

Now on American Idol talk. I was stoked last week when they made an exemption to the already established rule of having 12 singers move on to the final round. That meant my Anoop made it to the top 13.

On last night's show, I was amazed at how much I really enjoyed the performances as a whole. The first few singers were good, I thought. After all had sung, and believe me I was all focused on the show, which was something out of ordinary for me to do, three people made an impression to me:

  1. Danny Gokey---that guy can sing and I have thoroughly enjoyed his performance, including his jerky, awkward dance moves.
  2. Adam Lambert---0ne of my two favorites from the very beginning. He did a fabulous job I thought, but I was quite unsure when I found out that he was singing Black and White. He did good on that performance. I just hope there were enough people to vote for him, because I am surely not voting. I am merely a spectator. To quote my husband: "We don't want to invest more time and effort to AI than we already do."
  3. Anoop Desai----not a good impression, but an impression nevertheless. Okay here I go.....WTF is that guy thinking. I hope he's not channeling the ghost of Sanjaya by being a goof. Okay I read some write-ups about the show last night and people say that while his song choice was bad, his performance and his singing wasn't all that bad. I really really hope he sails to the next round so I can see that all my faith in him is based on solid grounds. And that he can sing at least one good song that feels like tailor-made for him.

The rest did not really register that much to me. I know that Lil Rounds is good, but quite boring. The girls are kinda boring to me this year. Okay, here's crossing my fingers for Anoop. My husband wants him to stay long enough so that he can sing the Oscar-award winning Jai Ho from Slumdog Millionaire :)

Well that's all for now.

If there is one consolation to my despair at missing LOST again last night, the third week in a row!!!!, it's the inclusion of Anoop Dog in the wild card sing-off of AI tonite. After watching AI for years and getting comfortable with the program of choosing 12 girls and 12 boys from the Hollywood round, the shake up this year is quite interesting; nothing that I dismissed instantly nor embraced with both arms either. I thought I would take a "wait-and-see" attitude. Apparently they had done this thing before. I believe I heard Simon mention that without the wild card sing-off there would be no Clay Aiken or Jennifer Hudson. You see I dont know that because those early seasons I was not watching AI.

It could be very interesting tonite. As I understand it, the eight (?) that got chosen will sing for their lives and the four judges will select three aspirants to move on to the next round, making the total of 12 singers.

I have high hopes for Anoop to choose the right song and be fantastic. Wait, will AI move in Grey's Anatomy timeslot?

Oh well, if it does, I might as well catch it up online after Lost.
