American Idol - Seven Left

This week’s Idol singoff wasn’t as good as last week’s, mainly because I hated the category from which they had to choose, anything from the 21st century. So we got two countries from the country boy and girl, Scotty and Lauren, and the rest pretty much rock or metal, with everyone demonstrating how high a note they could hit. Dogs started barking. If the winner were based on musical ability instead of popularity, Casey Abrams and James Durbin would be the front runners. Both will probably get voted off in the next two or three weeks. Neither of them will be very visible after the show is over, both of them probably touring with groups, Casey with his own jazz ensemble and James with a heavy metal group of his devising. But they’re the best musicians. I see cock-headed Scotty winning it all with fat-thighed Lauren a close second. The highlight of last night’s show was when Casey, singing “Harder to Breathe,” ended the number by giving Jennifer Lopez a peck on the cheek, surprising her and all the viewers. A classy bit from a very good singer/musician. Anyone who didn’t get to see it can go to YouTube. And speaking of young, talented musicians you might also check out a lovely 16-year old Canadian named Nikki Yanofsky. How can someone that young be that talented? Check her out.
