My “American Idol” random thoughts

Attention “American Idol” fans, do you agree with any of the following:

  1. That there is more than just Coke in Paula Abdul’s cup.
  2. David Archuletta always looks like he’s going pee his pants
  3. Jason Castro should thank the legions of stoners and pre-teen girls that vote for him that are too stupid to realize how badly he sucks.
  4. Syesha Mercado is more of a Broadway star than a pop star
  5. David Cook wouldn’t know an original arrangement if it bit him on the ass
  6. All David Archuletta songs are starting to sound the same
  7. The fact that Jason Castro made the top four and Brooke White didn’t is proof that there is no God
  8. Salad croutons exude more sex appeal than David Archuletta
  9. Isn’t it interesting how the sound of some songs sounds terrible and great on others
  10. If Americans can’t pick the right top four American Idols means that we are not smart enough to vote for president.

Jason Castro must go now from “American Idol”

When are “American Idol”voters going to wake up, smell the coffee and get rid of the marginally talented Jason Castro?

Sometimes Castro is charming. More often than not, though, his dreadlocks seem to be wound too tight. He has turned in some godawful performances such as tonight’s butchering of the Neil Diamond classic “Sweet Caroline.” For the past few weeks, Castro has performed with the grace of a deer caught in the headlights of an oncoming pick-up trucks.

My pick to win the show David Archuleta has floundered of late as well. Maybe the pressure is getting too much for the 17-year-old to handle.   Brooke White, my second-favorite contestant, has been uneven as well.  America’s girl next door has been acting goofy at times though I enjoyed her performances of “Love on the Rocks” and “Play Me.”

David Cook continues to successfully sing other people’s arrangements. Syesha Mercado seems more at home on the Broadway stage than the the pop charts. She may wind up in the bottom three along with Castro and White.

By the way, what was Paula Abdul smoking when she criticized someone for singing a song that hadn’t been sung yet?  I guess it’s surprising when she is coherent.
