Last night TWO of my favorite shows were on. First up was “Ground Force” – the episode where they came to NYC to do a garden on the Lower East Side. It was a full hour long and well worth the wait. They really made a lovely garden.
Then after that I flipped over to “American Idol” and saw some surprising events. Tamyra – not that good last night. Justin – his first song was fabulous, his second was not good because it was too high for him. Kelly – wow was she great. I didn’t care for her karaoke cover of “It’s Raining Men”, but I loved her ballad. It was gorgeous and shows that she doesn’t have to sing all loud and stuff to be good. Sometimes I think she goes “Diva” too much in her production numbers, but that ballad was beautiful. And Nikki – darling Nikki finally pulled out some decent performances. Granted, her voice still has no beauty – her tone while singing is kind of grating, but I agree with the judges that she finally picked songs that suit her – and that helped. She won’t be booted off next week. In my opinion, either Justin or Tamyra should be the two lowest vote getters because they just were not good. Granted, OVERALL, Tamyra is the best, but if you are going just on last night, my picks are as follows:
1. Kelly Clarkson
2. Nikki McKibbin
3. Tamyra Gray
4. Justin Guarini
