I didn't get the memo and have no idea when the season actually ends...other than knowing it is soon! So, I was surprised. Have to admit that I really don;t want anybody to go home.....well, that's a lie....i wouldn't mind if Angie went. (but that won;t happen being poster child for american girl and all)
it has been fun this season when they bring on the real artist on the judging night. Drake was sweet and everyone seemed so thrilled. Ratings move?
Stephano. I had completely forgotten about him. And I have also completely forgotten the song from last night. Liked his glasses tho.
Lee. Yes, sounded like the Luminere;s (or however you spell it) Still.....I think he did a really good job of it. How long does it take to do anything musically post American Idol?
(My mind was deep in GOT and I had a lot of trouble refocusing on AI) I know....need a life.
Why did the TARDIS show Clara herself? Because the TARDIS is a female, and it doesn't like her...probably because of the Doctor's inordinate interest in her. It projected her image as "the thing she esteems most" as an insult. True or not doesn't matter, at least not to a TARDIS scorned.
Jinxx all the way. Roxxxy does not have the personality people should be relating to the gay world. WHAT A B*TCH! Her own style, grace, the ability to bring a smile to a person's face. That's the next superstar. That is Jinxx.
oops....and one more thing: If there is any truth to the winner of American Idol totally being manipulated from behind the scenes: then Angie is their girl. She has the look , she's vanilla & she's a bit of a Girl Scout.
The judges kept saying last night that it wasn't about their voices anymore. has to be the 'right' song, bring out their emotion blahblahblah. They have a point tho....as their voices are all excellent. So much can go wrong tho:
Amber: 'Power of Love" & "McArthur Park"...both totally didn;t fit her. Voice pristine. She looked great. Nikki said she looked like a big glass of sexy milk when singing the Celine Dion song.
Candice: "Emotion" & something forgettable by Drake. Voice fabulous...a weird arrangement of one of the songs and she ended up missing the melody. lack lustre performance compared to other weeks. Also, she has a cold/
Angie: The judges praised her but I totally didn't hear it. She sang her beloved Jessie J and I just don;t like that overly emotional stuff that just isn't enjoyable music to me. Then, "Cry me a River" which was better but so overdone and I don;t think she brought anything new to the table.
Kree: sort of blew it with both. Jimmie said that one bluesy number has been sung 100 x and he is right....then sang "A Whiter Shade of Pale"...great tune, lovely voice but I've already forgotten the performance.
Duets: Amber/Kree...voices good, song of Adelle's (& did you say this? I never want to hear another Adelle song at these shows)..kind of a quiet job....
Candance/Angie: Stay (Rhianna). I took a Gravol before this performance but the girls rose to the occasion and both belted out their sides and did a bit of a Diva thang.
The judges generally were all over Angie. I didn't get it at all....then, I don;t get her...or her crying grandmother who was brought on stage. I think dear Kree may be in the bottom in terms of worst performance of the 4.
Cathy: Alas, no "Idol" blog today. I returned home last night to discover that my machine did not record a single second of it. I'm going to trouble shoot what went wrong tonight but I'm committing to not being out of the house during "Idol" broadcasts for the next three weeks until the finale. But I WILL have a blog up tonight as soon as the episode airs. Sorry for the inconvenience!
@ Eric. You're killing me!
Alaska for the win!
Wonderfully written. My vote has to go to Jinxx for not only talent but the growth she has shown during the show and for being able to hold her head high for ALL genders, cultures, and people of any sexual preference to be entertained by. A true talent and star for All!
Its really hard to decide between JINKX/ALASKA. Both have proved to be worthy of the title. ROXY just take a back seat and observe how a superstar acts and how they treat people.
Jinkx Monsoon should be the next drag Superstar. She has literally blossomed on the show and honey..RuPaul may have loved her runway look but i thought it a hot mess..her bubblebutt looked fake and she was no beautiful at all. Jinkx Monsoon all the way..that's where MY people at.
and BTW..Jinkx doesn't even have to lipsynch..her voice is to die for. I think Jinkx embodies the new drag
This show is deliciously fabulous. Do you have the Remedial Program there to refer back to though?....Congrats to you to remember all the nuances. Also, to hear all the dialogue. I have alot of trouble hearing it. You are so right that the budget was huge for this show. The panoramic views were very incredible.
Couple of things: Who is the person that Margaery wants Sansa to wed?
They have totally toned down the make up on the Hound....looks more like a puppy who needs braces.
(Btw phone calls, not hearing well and eating dinner, I missed who was in the box that Varys had.
(and again, so right that Conleth Hill is superb)
Diana Rigg rocks.
Team Daenerys. Just the greatest seen. Ever.
I love you all but my heart goes to Alaska.
BTW how to get the tickets to the reunion ?
Love Alaska, but she hasn't been consistent.... Roxxxy just shouldn't be in top 3 period.... That leaves Jinkx Monsoon!!!! JInkx is most deserving of the title!!!! Team JINKX!!!
Either Alaska or Jinx.
It's hard to choose between Alaska and Jinkx but I think Jinkx Monsoon is the better choice. Maybe first because her entire drag name can be published without using "$&@/". LOL But I just love the personality Alaska has shown, even as part of "Rolodex" (as Michele called the group) she managed to avoid the bitchiness. And thank the goddess that Rolaskatox never stooped as low as "The Heathers" did in previous episodes.
I think we would do well with either Alaska or Jinkx, but Jinkx just appears to be more complete. After all, with $100,000 she can always buy new clothes! Roxxxy can't buy empathy with all the money in the world!
Jinkx should be the Next Drag Superstar she is everything a Queen should be. And fashion has NOTHING to do with it! It needs to be about the Voice and kindness, love for all and to traet those like they mean something and Jinkx does that. Go Jinkx!!!
Alaska is the Next Drag Superstar! By far she has grown and shown what true grace is all about~
Eric, thank you for writing such a balanced piece. And I so agree. Alaska has shown growth and maturity. And then, so has Jinx. Roxy ... well, lets face it ... she thinks her shit doesn't stink! And I'm guessing that it does! She is nasty and can be overly personal. She talks about being pageant, but let's face it, she is a plus size pageant at best.
I was definitely TEAM JINX, but now I certainly wouldn't be upset if Alaska won! If Roxy won, well ... Here's my view ... Roxy is a total ankle! And we all know an ankle is 3 feet lower than a C*&%%%! ANd I mean that in a non female anatomical way!
