American Idol 2011!

This week was really a sad one for me. You will find out by the end of this post.

May 24th will be the Season Finale. I know that is one show I will not miss.

There are only four contestants left this week and they have to sing two songs.

The first type of song they have to sing is Inspirational;

James sang " Don't Stop Believing" By Journey. This was another awesome performance by him. If you listen to this he almost sounds like Steve Perry singing this song and I loved it.

Haley sang " Earth Song" By Micheal Jackson. She did an awesome job with this performance. I just love her voice.

Scotty sang " Where Were You When The World Stop Turning" by Alan Jackson. His performance was awesome too. He can sing his country songs really great. He sounds like Alan Jackson with this song.

Lauren sang " Anyway" by Martina McBride. She had a good performance. But to me she still sounds like she is singing karaoke.

The next type of song has to be written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller;

Haley sang " I Who Have Nothing" by Jordin Sparks. This was an awesome performance by her. The whole audience was standing during the whole song. It was great.

Scotty sang " Youngblood" by The Coasters. This was an awesome performance by him. You could tell he was having a blast with this song. I loved it.

Lauren sang " Trouble" by Elvis. This performance was really good. This was not one of her better performances by her.

James sang " Love Potion Number 9" by The Searchers. This is another one of his awesome performances. You could tell he was having a great time with this song.

The Special Guests are;
Enrigue Iglesias
Jordin Sparks
Lady Gaga as the mentor
Steven Tyler's debut video

There was 72 million people that voted this week.

This week they did a Top 3 and they are -


This is why I am saying this week is a sad week for me. I was really hoping for James to win. He has been doing an awesome job with all of his songs. I think Lauren should have gone home instead.

I would really like to hear your thoughts on this!


  1. As of this point I'm beginning to think Idol is a joke! First, Casey Abrams gets eliminated, then James Durbin, SHEESH! Casey had the talent to be an original. I couldn't pigeon-hole him into any label. Jazz, alternative, blues-who knows what he going to bring to the table.

    James-His voice just slays me! This guy is willing to push the envelope as far as show biz goes! Me thinks he'll get a contract soon.

    I'm not a huge country fan, yet Scotty has got what it takes to be a rising country star.

    Haley-Love her voice! She could easily be the next Janis Joplin.

    Lauren-When will she go home?

    That there kinda proves to me Idol is a popularity contest, not a talent show.

  2. I really like James this week he had so much fun singing I really hope he goes places with his music. It was sad to see him go.

  3. Drew I agree with you 100% about it being a popularity show. I thought this was suppose to be to see who could sing. James was the one that could sing and get the audience going. I also agree with you about Haley she is really good.

    Anonymous that is why I said that this week was sad for me. I didn't want to see James leave. I think Lauren should have gone.
