Whose brilliant idea was it to do a Latin week? Talk about a snoozefest. And J-Lo? After her extremely terrible Grammy performance with Marc Antony a couple years ago, that woman shouldn’t be allowed within fifty yards of aspiring singers.
Don’t get me wrong, I like Latin music. But it doesn’t work for American Idol. Latin music, at least the kind that was mostly on display last night, is about groove and beat and moving your body. It’s party music. It’s not really about singing.
Sanjaya actually made a good choice of song. That kind of Latin music is about singing. And he also executed it competently. I’m afraid we’re not going to be rid of him for a long time.
It’s hard to say who did the best last night. It was all very samey. Most of them were competent. Like I said, Latin party music is no good for American Idol.
Please let Haley be done. It’s getting embarassing. I hate that Simon draws attention to her use of sex appeal, but I guess she invites it by not being a good singer and by wearing those tiny shorts.
