Dammit, I'm Still Voting for Sanjaya (and Haley and Gina)! And Dammit 2, Gwen Stefani is Still Hot.

By: The Dude on the Right
Gwen Stefani looked utterly adorable in her little clips, but I have to say she didn’t come off that great as a vocal coach. Vocals aside, what she really needed to do was coach some of these folks on stage performance, because, sadly, some of them seemed to really be lacking this week.

In any case, this episode was the "music of No Doubt or music that inspired No Doubt" week. What we have learned is that Donna Summer and The Police seemed to have the most influence on the band, and that Sanjaya loves to change his hair so we should vote for him.

Here’s what I thought of this week’s performances…

Lekisha: Sang Donna Summer’s "Last Dance." Ugly-ass dress, still sings great and performs well. I hate being superficial, but she needs to fix those teeth.

Chris (big hair): Sang The Police’s "Every Little Thing She Does is Magic." Sounds bad, and is trying to up the performance aspect, but man, it just doesn’t seem to be working, and he’s still off on the tempo side.

Gina: Sang The Pretenders’ "I’ll Stand By You." Sticking with the punkish outfit works for her, sounded fantastic, but the only problem I had was she didn’t work any of the stage.

Sanjaya: Sang No Doubt’s "Bathwater." I looked up at the screen as he started and yelled "Oh my God!" Why? Because his hair was set up in sort-of Mohawk mode. He wasn’t good, and I’ll bet the 10 to 12 year olds will still love him. He had moments of being able to sing, but for the most part he was bad, and I’m still voting for him. Simon said it best with "I don’t think it matters anymore what we say." Simon recognizes the magnitude of the Sanjaya movement.

Haley: Sang Cyndi Lauper’s "True Colors." She has the entire pop-idol package, from the looks to the good-enough voice. It will be interesting if she can just stick around because they can mold her into the next Kelly Clarkson, but this performance was just okay.

Phil: Sang The Police’s "Every Breath You Take." Bad skull-cap, but I think they are using it to cover his bald head that I think looks worse. I thought the performance was blah compared to what the judges said.

Melinda: Sang Donna Summer’s "Heaven Knows." Still a great voice, knows how to perform, but back in my superficial mood, could afford to lose a few pounds (don’t get all anorexic on me now, please), but those couple of pounds puts her into "Whitney Houston in her prime" mode.

Blake: Sang The Cure’s "Love Song." Took a great song and "bored" it up. The passion of Robert Smith seemed to be totally lost. I really didn’t like him.

Jordin: Sang No Doubt’s "Hey Baby." I was in the Jordin camp, after Sanjaya of course, but she didn’t pull this one off at all. Maybe it was better live for the audience, but for me on my TV it missed the sexiness of Gwen.

Chris (less hair): Sang No Doubt’s "Don’t Speak." Looked stiff as a board at the beginning, still looked stiff as a board in the middle, and even getting away from the mike stand, still looked stiff. Sounded okay, but the performance blew.

I now have only three reasons to watch "American Idol." One is Haley, who might not be the strongest singer but has the entire "Idol" package. Two is Gina because she has a good voice and is from my neck of the woods. And of course three is Sanjaya, because if he won he would be the best Non-American Idol idol ever.

I’ve been voting for Sanjaya early, and often. I only wish I had some dead relatives who could also vote. At least Howard Stern has his listeners, I can’t even convince Mama Gotz to vote for Sanjaya, but hopefully Stu Gotz was able to sneak in a couple of votes.

That’s it for this one! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
