I'm Spam Girl Today

Yes, this is my third post today. I think that's a record for me.

To begin with, re-reading my last entry three times after a tip off by me dear Goyle, I finally caught a whopper of a typo. Nothing like linking to the wrong LJ. :p I'm guessing anyone who read it knew who I was actually talking about. Anywho, it's been fixed.

Speaking of LJ, what the frell is up with it? I'm not receiving any e-mails notifying me of replies/comments. Very annoying.

So, I'm watching American Idol and a wee bit disappointed. The show got off to a great start then went downhill. I still don't think John Stevens has a chance in Hell of winning this thing, but I still really enjoy his voice. And even though he flubbed the lyrics, I thought he gave one of his strongest performances tonight including a bit of showmanship. At least he should be safe for another week. Right now I think LaToya London is the best overall performer - voice, looks, and personality. Which means someone else will win...

Hey sweetie. The LJ status report very recently posted this bit of info:

"Currently, LiveJournal's email servers are under heavy load. This is the cause of email comment delay. We're taking a number of steps to resolve the problem, including turning some more machines into mail servers, but it may take a little while longer for the backlog to get delivered."

Maybe they'll get it fixed quickly.

I don't what it is exactly, but this kid appeals to me. I really like the way his voice sounds. I have doubts that he can master the pop genre and I don't believe he'll come close to winning, but I still think he sounds great. I didn't even realize he had forgotten the words during his performance. I thought he meant to do a little scat.

In agreement with you once again. I hope she has the opportunity to stick around and give more great performances.

I also like Amy Adams and Diana DeGarmo. Amy just seems to be having fun to me. I could do without the pink hair but it doesn't look so bad on her. And Diana is a good singer with nice stage presence but I think she's too young to win. I'm pretty much on the fence about everyone else. The male talent is rather disappointing this time. It does seem, like Randy Jackson has claimed, to be the year of the female on AI.
I'm so-so on Amy (the haircolor thing is too much of a gimmick and has got to go), but I agree on Diane. That girl has a power house voice and feels comfortable on stage - you can't say that about many of them. Still, I also agree, that she is on the young side and I think the voters may want to go with someone older.

I already know (unlike a certain somebody who has us blacklisted at the moment ;), like me, how much you appreciate John. Does he have the stongest voice? No. Can he be a pop idol? Most definitely No. But, as Simon put it, the kid is unique - he doesn't look or sound like anyone else in the competition. If he should per chance sing 'Beyond the Sea' or 'Mack the Knife', two of my fav songs that are well suited to his voice, you can imagine me bouncing up and down on my couch in glee. :)

I'm pretty sure you are correct in surmising a woman will win this year. Out of the men, George probably has he best shot though.
I so agree with both of you.

If he should per chance sing 'Beyond the Sea' or 'Mack the Knife Wow. I would love for him to sing those. That would be perfect. He is the only male singer on this Idol that I like. The women are definitely out-singing the guys. And I think Latoya sings rings around everyone else.
So, do we have enough people to start the John Stevens Lj Community yet? ;)

Another thing I love about the kid is his cool, calm exterior. Last night, when he flubbed the lyrics, could any of us tell he was paniced as he told Ryan Seacrest he was? And tonight you didn't sense any nerves at all but we got a brief show of relief at being told he was safe.

Unless she screws up a song big time, it seems LaToya is the one to beat.
