Just dealing with this week; that must have been the most boring performance night I have ever seen on that show. The theme for the night was Frank Sinatra songs, and I was so glad there were only five performances. None of the contestants are at all stylistically like Sinatra, and it made it awkward.
Maybe it’s just me. Frank Sinatra was a great singer, but I can’t say that I’m a fan of his music. As Sinatra goes, I was always more about his acting in movies like “Suddenly” and “The Manchurian Candidate.” Even still I found myself on a couple of occasions going, “Oh, I like that song,” but I just wasn’t liking it as an American Idol performance.
And it’s not the fault of the contestants, because they’re all very good. In fact, the top 4 has shaped up exactly as I wanted. For the first time since I started watching the show, I’m fine with whatever happens from this point on with four contestants still in the running. I am pulling for either Mike or Crystal, but Casey or Lee could win and I’d still be ok.
I just hope they pick a better song theme next week; maybe the songs of Lennon and McCarthy… umm, my apologies to anyone who has been watching for the last two years; that was in poor taste.
