[...] is the holding spot for tonight’s top 13 performance show for the guys. There is also a live blogging entry. I’ll see if there’s enough traffic to make that worthwhile this year. It may not be. [...]

Yay! I know most will be live blogging and I may give it a try again but last year I found it way too distracting. I like to focus on the singers and much as I don’t like a show when they make it about the judges, the live blogging feels like it’s all about the comments. Neither one seems to care about the singers.

I’m with you Deirdre – my old brain couldn’t handle the live blogging as much as I wanted! So I’m here with you for a try tonight…we’ll see if I can hang :)

Uhhhm, didn’t like Reed but just me. I have no expert opinion on why…

Has the 13th been announced? Like the guys need an advantage.

He should have picked another sing. It doesn’t even show any range he possible may have. Too safe.

Reed = Taylor Hicks 2.0.

I like Adam a lot!

This guy singing Freedom SUCKS! Here’s the first elimination. …too easy and so embarrassing.

Taylor Hicks 2.0? I didn’t think….I liked it!

Miss Javon

What? I thought it was cheesy.

Miss Javon

KatJ…Taylor was cheesy. THIS guy is cheesy = nobody cares. Do you EVEN know what cheese is? He was doing the bow-legged chicken dance, making faces and just g-r-o-s-s.

Trying to work the falsetto ~ NOT!

Miss Javon – I have to agree. His falsetto is on point, but UGGH!

Now, if the judges praise w/o any negative criticism, I need to channel myself into Donald Trump…YOU’RE FIRED!

Here we go ~ the best ever, yatta, yatta, yatta. This is not starting off well at all!

Deandre just nailed his coffin…he was a front favorite of mine but that was AWFUL What? He’s getting pimped by the judges!

Those two girls know hes gay right

Miss Javon

Oh HEY Pitchy…this should be interesting to see how the guys work out tonight,..they seemed better than the girls in the auditions. So far though…the guys are not choosing the best songs.

KatJ

Miss Javon I’m well aware of what cheese is and cheesey…TYVM

As has always been the case, the girls are going to BLOW THEM OUT THE WATER!!!

So far, no one is good. I think the “Pod People” have invaded ALL the judges.

Miss Javon

I love this guy but he is searching….started out as Cold Play and ended as Nirvana. Interesting but not perfect. He WILL get better.

KatJ

Miss Javon are you just here tonight to create drama? Or have fun discussing the show and the contestants? We all have different opinions – settle down hun, we just getting started….

Pitchy

For all you youngins blogging, the reference to Pod People is from the movie, Invasion of the Body Snatchers (LOLOL).

Relevant…Steven said it! Different…do we REALLY want another Lee DeWho?

Sorry KatJ if you can’t handle the heat. this site often gets opinionated. If you can’t handle something against yours…Momania is just a click away and you can discuss PB&J vs Ham/Cheese with the other moms. Hon? I always thought I was a bit more mustard than honey…

I agree – haven’t seen anything I would keep on a DVR so far. The Judges have to get excited and try to sell the talent and the show – so far, just cheerleaders, regardless of the score.

Pitchy

So far, he’s the best.

Seth T…well said…not blown away by the guys so far…surprisingly~

Through w/Miss Javon…whatever sugar! I can take the heat :) Well aware of opinions, just never attacked personally here on this blog – especially the FIRST NIGHT – because I had a DIFFERENT OPINON. And I don’t intend to attack anyone personally or question their intelligence because I disagree with them. Settle down sugar . Agree Pitchy, I haven’t seen anything exciting yet out of any of these folks…..

Jeramy Rosado is a “likeable” guy. But nothing exceptional that I can hear in his singing; good but so are many others in choirs, praise bands, theatre, etc. Deandre will get more teen fans though.

Pitchy

@Seth T – I concur.

Never can say goodbye wasn’t bad…

Aaron was good – I liked that

Seth T

February 28th, 2012
8:54 pm

I am fairly sure we won’t see Aaron in the top 12. Not a good style of performance for him, he would have been more in his element with a good ballad, not that song.

Here’s a premonition from my child, she says to pay attention to Jessica Sanchez tomorrow. She’s going far. We shall see.

I see the Brandon Frazier reference, but who gives a hoot. This is a singing comp.

Miss Javon

Cawntry boy is weak. Why are these judges pimping? Just not impressed so far. Yeah..he looks good…10 feet taller than Ryan…but not so good vocally.

the top 6 guys will be

phil philipps , heejun , jeremy , colton , deandre and either reed , creighton or eben

Randy is giving props to Chase – but I don’t see him as really a full Country guy, he performed well, but hard for me to tell how the voting audience is going to take him.

Miss Javon

February 28th, 2012
9:02 pm

KatJ…do you have a sweet addiction? First I’m honey…then I’m sugar. But I appreciate the attention. AS for the show…it appeared early on the guys might be better. Are they not as good or are they picking the wrong songs?

Pitchy

February 28th, 2012
9:04 pm

I feel they’re picking the wrong songs. No one has hit it out the park for the first night. Perhaps that’s on purpose.

Miss Javon

Much better than I expected him to be…this is a great song to begin with and he is delivering. Did NOT expect this. Creighton will be a contender for the distance.
