Top 36

February 12, 2009 12:08am CST
The Top 36 were announced tonight. Did anyone you were pulling for go home? What about someone you've been begging the judges to send packing but they hold fast? Do you have any early favorites to win? For me, I really liked Frankie and Rose who both got sent home. Tatiana makes me want to choke her but, unfortunately, if you can get past her personality, she really does have a good voice. And Nick Mitchell/Norman Gentle.... I think if you really get past his "shtick" and can concentrate on his voice, he's really not that good. I closed my eyes and really just listened to him sing and he's kind of flat. Not tonally flat, like flat versus sharp but flat like 2-dimensional, lacking flare. But I'm really glad to see Danny and Kristen go through and I hope they both make it a lot farther. I haven't picked a favorite yet. Every time I pick a favorite this early in the game (Carly Smithson, Danny Noriega, Nadia Turner, Will Makar...) they get to go home early so I'm not cursing anyone this year.

Tatiana has a good voice but she is just annoying. Some people might like her and vote for her. It will be a disaster ... LOL ... I like this guy who always wear a tie, unfortunately he was sent home. I hope they didn't send him packing because his voice is unique and he got this presence, I don't know his name but his bestfriend made it to Top 36. For now I like Adam Lambert, hope he made it to Top 12.

That was Jamar and it was sad that he had to go home. The problem with doing something like this with your best friend is eventually the two of you will be separated and it will be sad. I like Adam too. The judges, especially Kara, keep chastising him for having a theater voice but he's taking their advice and learning from it so I think he'll be great.

It is really sad but at least Jamar's best friend will continue on and he seems to be a nice guy so I think he is still cheering for his best friend. I'm really excited on the upcoming episodes and let's just wait and see who will be on the top 12.

I just read on Yahoo that Joanna Pacitti was released from the competition because she had a previous recording contract with a record label. She's been replace with Felicia Barton who sand "Put Your Records On" during her Louisville KY audition.

That's crap! Joanna admitted in her audition that she had had a contract. Actually, Simon brought it up, after reading her application. They should have never put her through if they were just going to send her home. I actually wondered why she got to audition after having a previous contract but thought maybe since it was previous and no longer ....erm...active(?) that it didn't count against her. I object!

Well, I have a list here and I have all 36 listed and I know what I think about each of them. I do have several favorites and I also have some that I wonder why they got through. I will start a discussion tomorrow about the list. However, to answer your questions- here goes: Tatianna- GREATLY ANNOYING- needs to go home Danny- great at what he does- should go far Jamar(Danny's friend)- should have stayed- more talent than some Scott- good and a great inspiration to all Michael Sarver- fantastic family man, good at what he does, will go far in competition Stevie Wright- great voice, shoud do well Lil Rounds- good, but too much like Fantasia Well, that is enough for now

I'm glad I'm not the only one who went right to Fantasia after hearing Lil Rounds story. And she looks a little like her too.

I don't realy know their names yet, but I was sorry to see the guy go that was friends with the one that had his wife die recently. I heard they are doing the wild card again this year so maybe he'll come back. I know that I'm sorry to see the annoying laughing "OH MY GOD" girl make it. I hope she goes home the first week. I won't be able to stand listening to her for too long. I surprised at some of the ones that made it. The ones that had the sing offs didn't do very well at all. Maybe they should ahve not picked either of them and then they could have kept some of the better ones they got rid of.

Actually, the only sing off that I didn't agree with was the last one. Michael did a thousand times better than the other guy (whose name has escaped me now) but they put them both into the top 36. But I definitely think Kristen sang better than Jen so I totally agreed with that decision. And that's two votes for Jamar.
