Hi people, its been a long moment since I posted anything up.... I really wasn't at my blogger-best last week, my duties doubled at the office and I really have a lot on my plate at the moment... maybe I should just delete my blog already!!!! Hmmmmn... not just yet!!!

So there was another Idols show yesterday, but let me back up for a bit... Last week, I'm sure y'all know that Joan was voted off... I thought she had a lot in her but well, it's the votes that count so there! I wish her all the best.....

Yesterday, we saw perfomances from Omawumi (‘Cry’ by Faith Hill), Jodie (‘These Words’ by Natasha Beddingfield), Eric (‘Walking Away’ by Craig David), Mercy (‘If I Ain’t Got You’ by Alicia Keys), Jerrilyn (‘Work it Out’ by Beyonce), Temitayo (‘I Turn To You’ by Christina Aguilera), Timi (‘Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me’ by Elton John) and Uche (‘Lonely No More’ by Rob Thomas)

My take on last nite's show
Overall, the Top 8 did Okay.... Omawumi sang a nice song and she did ok although there were moments where she didn't quite hit the high notes... I expect to see her next week though... Jodie was excellent as usual, I mean - she took the song apart and I loved her delivery. Eric swayed the srowd with his charm and good looks.... he also sang well... Mercy has upped her game and she sang better, but her facial experessions are such a distraction... for me, the thing she lacks the most is attitude... there's no telling if she'll stay or go though. Next up, Jerrilyn. Now, she sang a Beyonce number and dressed to type for the song... she also shook her booty so much!!! Anyway, I'm sorry to say that her perfomance didn't quite work;-) for me.... Temitayo sang a very difficult Christina Aguilera number and she did not impress me too much... I thought her overall perfomance was a bit flat and I did not feel the perfomance at all. Timi sang an Elton classic and brought it home... The guy was smoking fo sho! Last bu not least, Uche. He tried way too hard o! In my thinking, Uche has a smokey voice which has limited his music genre... not that the voice is bad, but it's special and he hould not be doing pop songs like that... I think he should stick to ballads and soul... my 2 cents o!
Here's a pix of the Top 8 for the record!

I'll be back with other issues later today, promise!

Why can't they just sing in their languages like Onyeka said? There won't be any accent to deal with that way.

lmao Azuka.... How you dey? Long time o! Meanwhile, they are supposed to be sellable (forgive my grammar) to the International's not wholly a Nigerian/ West African thing... the whole concept is American so they have to follow the set standards...

Nyemoni said...

Hey Uzo... I'm ok... Yeah, I think it's between Timi and Jodie for real!
