Sanjaya is Still the Best, but Melinda has Turned up the Heat.

By: The Dude on the Right
Though not nearly as cute as Gwen last week, Tony Bennett was the helper coach for this week's "American Idol."  Maybe it's because the show is trimmed down to an hour, but the clips didn't show Tony helping the kids that much, just giving his opinion (always nice) about the contestants.  But as I'm a half-hour in for this  re-cap, and trying to hit the redial as much as possible between sentences, my votes for Sanjaya seem to be blocked by busy circuits.  And other than Gina's performance, I couldn't be more happy.

In any case, here are my reviews of tonight's "American Idol" performances.

Blake: Sings "Mack the Knife." I actually think he did a fantastic job this week, up until the ending, and I usually don’t like him. He kept it mostly how the song should be sung.

Phil: Sings "Night and Day." That bald head just does not work (he should have worn a nice top hat or derby). His singing was okay, but I don’t think this was a good week for him. I found him boring. Paula said he reminded her of a young Frank Sinatra, and Simon said it best simply blurting out "What?"

Melinda: Sings "I’ve Got Rhythm." Keeping with my superficial-ness, it almost looks like she is trying to lose some weight, or at least is just picking better clothes. Of all of her performances this one puts her totally, especially if she is losing some weight, back on the right track. She just needs to quit smiling so big - popping out the upper gum.

Chris: Sings "Don’t Get Around Much Anymore." He didn’t seem to understand the crooner thing, and I thought he was bad, even with the nice lid. Maybe it was better live than on TV because the judges liked it, but I thought he sucked.

Jordin: Sings "On a Clear Day." Horrible outfit, and she almost seems to be putting on weight, or horrible outfits. Her singing was okay but for the most part I found her boring, which bums me out because I really liked her at the beginning of the competition. Probably better live for the audience.

Gina: Sings "Smile." I thought she sounded great, but really lacked on the performance side of it, although I’m hot sure how you "perform" that song. If she wanted to blast this out of the water she would have kept it calm for the first half of the song, then turned it into a rocker for the second half. Too bad.

Sanjaya: Sings "I’m in Heaven." He still can’t sing on stage, but he has figured out that all he needs to do is "work the crowd." The hair was more conservative this week. All he needs to do is worry about his hair and outfits.

Haley: Sings "Ain’t Misbehavin’." She has learned to flaunt her assets, sings okay (crooner songs are definitely not her forte), but I don’t care because according to my TV she is saving all of her love for me.

LeKisha: Sings "Stormy Weather." I’m sorry, but as nice as she sings all I can think is that if I gave her a bad review she would beat the crap out of me. Great voice, but somehow she needs to find the right people to make her flip into being glamorous in an Aretha Franklin kind of way.

This will be an interesting week to see who gets voted off because of many outside sources, and the fact that the youngins probably have no clue who Tony Bennett is.  I'm still voting for Sanjaya, Haley, and Gina, because at least for Haley and Gina, they have the looks to become an American Idol, although Melinda seems to be closing in fast.

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