Just press play…you won’t believe what this woman can do!
Slezak, I love you. Your videos this year have been amazing.
Actually that last part with Cook and Syesha put together made me all happy inside: Kick out Archuleta! Cannot stand the little boy wonder with permanent eyesight and breathing problems.
Aww, Slezak, you’re being too harsh on Jason; why would he have wanted to stay when the judges clearly would have hated anything he did? AI was intent on ousting him and he knew it. He was refreshingly real, and that made him a bad fit for the show, which seems to celebrate “types” (the rocker, the balladeer, the diva) rather than true individuals. I know that some will say that Jason fits the “stoner” type, but his exit interview here on ew.com shows just how thoughtful and articulate he is. It was the right time for him to leave; I just wish the show hadn’t been so cruel in how it treated/depicted him these last few weeks.
Why is it that others can forget their lyrics, but when Jason does it, it is labeled as , “Not Trying”?
If he had broken down in tears a la Brooke White, would you have percieved it differently?
Once again Jason is being penalized for being a grounded, well adjusted person who realizes this is a singing competition and not a meeting of his fate at the Pearly Gates!
Hopefully when you talk to him in person you will realize that he WAS trying, but AI is not a structure that nurtures artists who prefer to feel and interpret their music instead of just belting it out.
Why in the world did David Cook record “Hungry Like the Wolf” instead of “Baba O’Reilly” for his iTunes song? (It would have been nice if they recorded all of the performance songs…I wanted his second song last week, too.)
Through seven seasons, there have been a lot of contestants who embodied the Peter Principle. They rose to their level of incompetence, but seemed totally oblivious to it. Are we supposed to be mad at Jason Castro for recognizing that he’s out of his depth now?
thank God you’re here EW to help get us all mad about the all-davids finale that we have no control over. If only the public had a way to render an opinion or, perhaps, “vote” for the best contestants? If only … if only.
syesha as wonder woman = priceless. honestly the best thing i have seen to date. and stephen – i’m all for a en vogue american idol all star group. just put mandisa and vonzell in there too, okay?
I dream of a David Cook -Syesha finally. If only…
David Cook’s Analog Heart CD sells on ebay for $760.00 May 9!!! #220230908969
David Cook’s Album, Analog Heart is currently listed on ebay at $255.00 bid and rising with one more day to go for this auction. WOW!! Kudos to David on your Beautiful Album!!
Gotta See this for yourself:
During David’s Radio Show Interview Friday, the local DJ, Rocket gave DC a message from Mariah Carey. Mariah DEMANDED that David record his version of “Always Be My Baby.” David graciously said, “OK”.
Syesha and David Cook finale would be high-energy and awesome to watch!
Go Syesha and David Cook!!
ok… BEST. IDOLATRY. EVER. You know how people write lol? Well this time I actually did LOL — loud! And when you edited Syesha’s spins to the WONDER WOMAN theme, I may have even LMFAO. Well done! Wonder Woman… You’re amazing!
Slezak I’m disappointed this week! Jason had kick a** performances this week, aside from a brief lyrical miss which he recovered from and still did a marvelous job on Mr. Tambourine Man! I’m disappointed that you think he wasn’t trying especially since he said in all his interviews that he was giving it his all. I think his song choices really reflected who he was and I thought you would have liked I Shot the Sheriff and the fact that it was a big eff you to the man (i.e. AI machine)! I’m really sad that you couldn’t look past the fact that he forgot the lyrics, which every other contestant (some several times in fact) has done this season. I have to disagree with you because I am a huge Jason fan and would have loved to see him in the top 3! BTW a David C. v. Syesha finale would make me cringe!! However, the Syesha as wonder woman thing was hilarious! I wish you had given Jason a little respect but I still love ya and think you are hilarious!
Well, I see your on the run over Jason bandwagon now. I’m getting sick and tired of people saying that Jason did’nt try. In my opinion, his performance Tuesday was the ONLY interesting and entertaining one. Jason did’nt give us the same ‘ol song and dance- like the rest of the contestants- he really let go, missed lyrics and all. And I don’t believe for one minute that he got the least votes. If you knew anything about our fanbase, you would’nt either.
Slezak on the run-over-Jason bus? Are you kidding? He fawned over his performances, even “Memories,” all season long and just because he finally gives the guy serious criticism doens’t make him part of a vast all-David conspiracy. Get real.
