You are reading page 2 of American Idol 2011. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

I live in the dark ages . . .no DVR . . . no Tivo.

Probably a good idea though.

Here we can get a DVR service through the cable company for just a few extra bucks a month. Cable here is very expensive though.

They've advance now that if you stumple upon a program and hit record, it will record from the beginning of the show. This I love.

We got Directv before all those fancy newfangled devices were offered! Still have the old box they hooked us up to although we did end up buying a new "clicker" . . . . the dogs chewed it up.

I guess we could upgrade . . . . but I'm having a very hard time justifying spending almost $70 a month for television:mad:.

And we also pay our in-laws' Directv account (which is fine - we bought them a new tv for Christmas a few years ago and satellite service as they only had rabbit ears and 3 channels). But that is another $70.

Tweety - thought of you tonight as I was reading the latest People Magazine. There's an interview "Steven Tyler Answer Your Questions - Idol's Wild Card".

Question: "Can we expect the crazy Steven I know and love, or do you have to censor yourself for Idol?"

Answer: "I'm not into flambeing, but I didn't fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian . . . " :coollook:

As I look at his photo - I think it is his lips that bug me. When you cover up his lips . . . it isn't so bad.

Stephen Tyler is butt ugly....big mouth......still he's made great music and he's not a bad judge.

Steph, I know what you mean about the cost. My cable/internet connection is $150 a month, which to me is outrageous and I'm thinking of dropping some services.

I don't get my internet through Directv - it comes from our phone service and that adds another $50.

So yeah . . . . :mad:

Looks like there is some really talented folks this year. The judges are doing fine. Simon is gone......but this team is growing on me........even Steven Tyler.

After the solos last night, I am surprised at some of the ones who got through......especially the skinny girl with the big eyes.....way too much drama since day one. I predict she will NOT be the next American Idol. LOL

I love to listen to Steven Tyler, but he looks like a monkey on Botox. It gives me the creeps when he ogles the young women. I don't have a good feeling yet for who's going to make the top 24. I think my favorite is the young man with Asperger's Syndrome. He has a great voice and a very touching story.

I only saw the group event so far and enjoyed it. There were some good groups. The kids called "The Minors" were awesome, but not sure what advantage they got from their parents coaching them, but nonetheless they were talented.

The guy with Tourette syndrome, that barely has control over his emotions, has got to stop screaching. That's so Adam Lambert and sooooooo annoying.

So I was surprised the Milwaukee guy with the TBI wife didn't pass?! I thought he would be a dark horse, and had something in him. Also they talked about a lot of people that I did not remember seeing tonight. I know already that I don't like our little goof with the stupid glasses who kicked cherub boy out of his group. I think that probably cherub boy won't last, he is just too young for this kind of thing...

Great top 24...no real standouts, but for the guy that Randy said was the most talented he's ever seen. He's my favorite so far too, because of his multi-talents and personality. But it's still early in the game.

That guy will win no matter what the outcome is - he's very talented.

It's going to be a great season. :)

Anyone going to post reviews like years gone by?

Here are mine for the guys. My overall impression is that they guys this year are fantastic.

1. Clint Jun Gamboa - "Superstition" - Nailed it. Did a great job and it took places Stevie Wonder didn't dream of.

2. Tovany Barreto - "I'll Be" - Sort of safe at first, but great vocals and he pulled it together at the end.

3. Jordan Dorsey - "OMG" - Not a good job. He was all over the place vocally, and Usher is such a good live performer it made this a poor song choice for him.

4. Tim Halperin - A Rob Thomas song - I agree with the judges that this was a poor song choice. I had mad love for him so far, especially his singer-songer-at-a-piano persona and I'd had to see him leave, but this just wasn't his best. Vocally he was superb though.

5. Brett Lowenstern - "Light My Fire" - Pretty strong performance. I like that he is who is he without apology. The hair shaking has got to stop, it was annoying.

6. James Durbin - A Judas Priest Song - I'll have to admit, while I liked him up to now, I found him somewhat annoying with his screaching. However, tonight he took the stage with confidence, he looked like a rock star and sang like a rock star and was amazing. Loved him madly.

7. Robbie Rosen - Angel - I wasn't blown away. It was good, and he's consistently good, but it seemed a bit safe.

8. Scotty McCreery - Some country song - He played it safe, in his comfort zone, but I loved every minute of it. He was stunning to me.

9. Stephano Langone - "Just the way you are" - Great finish and he was very entertaining throughout.

10. Paul McDonald - "Maggie Mae" - Like everyone it seems, I love his unique quirky style. He did a great job.

11. Jacob Lusk - "House is Not A Home" - I was worried he'd get all loud and shouting, but he was simply amazing. A powerhouse vocal that didn't stop.

12. xCasey Abrams - some song - I'm not sure what the song was....I have made love for this kid....he was somewhat over the top, but the song I think required it, but he runs the risk of becoming annoying....for now I think he's great.

Picking a top five isn't easy, and I can't imagine who it will be. But here's my top five in no particularly order: Clint, James, Scotty, Jacob, and Casey.

I probably won't get to the ladies until this weekend.
