Holy cow, it’s Neil Diamond. I luuurve Neil Diamond. We all love Neil Diamond in the BagMomma house. In fact, when we found out that David A. was going to sing “Sweet Caroline” we made for great backup singers and my David even got out his guitar to accompany the music.
But you know what was even better than Neil Diamond night?
Paula totally zoning out and forgetting the show was only half over. Oh yes, that provided the best laughs of the night. Did you miss it? Watch here:
Oh yeah, we have a show to talk about….
Jason Castro: I really did not like Jason at all this week. It was just uncomfortable to watch. He’s really starting to bore me. I hate to say it, but he’s on his way out. He’s just not connecting with the audience anymore.
David Cook: This guy is just good, good, GOOD. The first song was classic David C., and the second song was even better. He’s just truly wonderful to watch every week. Love it. I also loved his jacket. Very cool, and custom (I hope he gets to keep it).
Brooke White: Brooke starts singing her first song, and all I’m thinking is SHREK. And then I am thinking that she’s really gone bonkers thinking she could sing that song without looking like a total dork. Nope, I hated it. She redeemed herself with the second song, behind the piano. It was like watching a bipolar performance. Too much for me.
David Archuleta: As I noted above, we love “Sweet Caroline”, but I’m pretty sure we loved hearing ourselves sing it more than David A. The second song just seemed…. I don’t know… like “Leave it to Beaver” style. You know, like Brooke when she’s tripping. I REALLY hate to say this, because it’s so unpopular to say… but I am just not into David A.’s singing anymore. It’s like hearing the same thing over and over. I’m sorry. You can chastise me in the comments.
Syesha Mercado: I loved her first song, not stellar, but she did a great job. I much preferred the second performance, but again, like in the case of Jason… I don’t feel her connecting with the audience. She’s good, but not that good.
I feel like it’s a foregone conclusion that the finale will be David vs. David.. and we are just biding our time until we get there.
Who SHOULD be voted off this week:
