It's IDOL Finale week - Duh Duh Duh (Ominous music lead in)...

It’s finale week! Someone is about to be crowned the tenth American Idol!

In the past, we have had amazing breakout performances in the Top 2 performance night. Some of my favorites include - Adam Lambert’s “A Change Is Gonna Come,” Fantasia’s “Summertime,” Katharine McPhee’s “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree,” Clay Aiken’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” and the list continues.  So...I was expecting a lot from tonight.

Well, we didn’t get a huge moment from either contestant, but they were both solid all the way through. I think we have a really even match up and I’m very curious to see who takes home the crown.

Here are my thoughts on tonight’s performances…

AI Top 3 - Now this brings back memories...

I love Top 3 night! These three contestants really gave it their all to make it to the finale, and I truly think they each have a chance. 

Once again, I have no idea who is in danger of getting voted off. My Twitter feed is saying Haley is definitely in, and my Facebook page is saying Lauren is definitely in. I agree with both, but we've had more than one shocking elimination already this season and Scotty also had a great night. Hmmm...

I do have a confession to make, though. For some reason, I was easily distracted while watching the show tonight. So, I have now watched each performance twice so that I could make sure to give you my true critiques. I thought you might enjoy hearing some of my distractions though, so I have included them as side notes. 

Let me know what you think of the show, my thoughts and even my distractions. I love hearing what you have to say! :-)
***Side note: This is the week I got voted off, so be nice. Hahaha!

Constructive criticism is a good thing!

I promise that I started off watching Idol in a good mood tonight. 

I was excited about the contestants getting to do two songs and show different sides of their craft. Then the show started and my mood changed. It wasn’t the fault of the contestants, though. It was the judging panel that literally made me rewind my television to make sure I was listening to the same song they were critiquing. I’m fully aware that the sound in the studio is different from what we hear on our television, but it’s hard for me to believe that it’s the complete opposite of what we’re hearing. 

So...I decided to write what I wish the judges would have said. Don’t get me wrong; all of the contestants are very talented. I’m just thinking about how constructive criticism has helped me in the long run. Here we go...
