AI7 Finale Performances

  • 20th May, 2008 at 7:01 PM
YAY, first time watching one of this season's shows on HDTV (and first time watching/blogging it live) :D Can't wait to hear them sing all of their songs. Even Clive chose good ones for them.

I could've been in that crowd :(Collapse )

That was... an incredible night. So, so, SO happy for Archie :)

This is me in the foulest of foul moods.

I've been on the waiting list for American Idol tickets ever since the beginning of the season and guess what? OCATV literally just sent me an email telling me that tickets to the dress rehearsal and both live tapings next week are available. Yes, that's right, I got tickets to the finale shows -- AND I JUST LANDED IN CHICAGO TONIGHT. I totally could have stayed with a friend in LA a little longer if I had known.

The worst part is, this is the SECOND time OCATV has pulled this shit. During season 4, I signed up to be put on the wait list at the beginning of the season and they didn't get to me until the day before the finale, so there was no way I could make it to LA in time.

FUCK YOU, OCATV. I'm never relying on you again.

I'm about to leave for LAX (still trying to figure out how I'm going to juggle three suitcases by myself, ugh), but I saw these and couldn't resist posting them.

Three guesses as to who's at the topCollapse )

ETA: OMG! Best news I've heard all day :)

It turned out that housing kicked me out this afternoon... and my flight back to Chicago is tomorrow at 5 pm. I panicked, begged LA people I knew to let me stay with them, and then finally resigned myself to the sad fact that I would have nowhere to sleep tonight. Then, luckily, my roommate's friend offered her (on-campus!!!) apartment to stay at, since she had applied for an extension but was going to stay the night at my roommate's home. And that's the end of my pointless story.

On to the results.

Ugh, I'm pissed that Archie recorded "Longer". WHY?! He should've recorded "With You", goddamnit. My guess is that because it's a current song that's still on the charts, the people associated with Chris Brown didn't want there to be any competition, so they didn't let AI release it as a single.

Wow, loud crowd tonight. Okay, let's get this show on the road! I'm SO excited to hear Archie sing "With You".

Um, is it creepy that I want to kidnap Archie and keep him with me forever?Collapse )

*takes deep breath*

Okay, here we go. I'm currently feeling neutral. By the end of this post, I'm either going to be livid or ecstatic.

Ugh, now I need to get back to doing work. Writing my fest fic, working on my research paper, packing... man, cleaning up everything in my room is going to be such a bitch.

AI7 Top 4 Performances

Ah, top 4 week. This is always a dramatic week on AI. Season 1 we lost Tamyra Gray, season 3 we lost LaToya London, and season 5 we lost Chris Daughtry. If you can't tell, there seems to be a pattern of the REALLY REALLY GREAT vocalists going home in a shocker elimination every odd AI season. Um... yeah, that doesn't bode too well for this week.

Weird, weird nightCollapse )

I'm feeling so emotional right now, lol. Tonight was a really intense performance night, and I keep thinking about all the shockers that have taken place on top 4 night in the past. I'm so scared that it's going to happen again :( NO MORE PATTERNS, PLEASE.

P.S. How fitting is my mood icon? It's Chris Richardson from last season awaiting the results.

FINAL VOTE COUNT: 530 texts + 160 calls for Syesha; 60 texts for Cook (I know, I know, I've committed the sin of vote splitting, but I'm sorry, I can't just not vote for Cookie)

Here we go, top 5 results...

Two manga recs: Gokujou no Koibito (actually, anything by Minase Masara is good) and Kiss ja Tomaranai. The first is incomplete and can be found , and the second can be found on yshare if you search for it.

On a random side note, I really want to write original fiction now. All the manga I've been reading is making me lose interest in the HP world. Plus I'm reading T.C. Boyle's The Inner Circle right now, which is really making me want to try writing something different. I love historical fiction, and it'd be hella cool to write it, but I don't think I have the motivation right now to do all the research. I'm thinking I might try to get into his creative writing class some time before I graduate. He's supposed to be a self-absorbed professor, but hey, he's a genius, so who cares?

AI7 Top 5 Performances

All things considered, not one of the more memorable performance shows this season.

Oh, and before I get to the review, let me just say that I love seer!Paula and succinct!Simon. I had to pause the video for a few minutes so I could crack up after the confusion over Paula thinking Jason had already sung twice. Poor Idol. They tried so hard to cover the fact that the judges go into the performance shows having already watched the dress rehearsal performances, but alas, Paula just can't be controlled. I love her. And Simon's summaries of the first performances? ABSOLUTELY ON TARGET. I'll address them in a bit. Also, WTF @ them showing the UCLA sign on camera. UCLA sucks.

Performance + overall rankings for the nightCollapse )

P.S. - Thank you to everyone who has already responded to my survey post :) You guys are AWESOME ♥ I'm already halfway to the minimum number of surveys needed :D
