IDOL-Dolly Parton Style

Here are my thoughts on Idol...because I can't help myself.

I'm thinking maybe David Cook reads my blog because he has taken my hair notes to heart. The mystery of the Receding hair line is solved, and turns out it's not as bad as we all thought. Good boy David. Good boy. And since this is a "singing" competition, he did good tonight, no? Thanks for reading David, I will continue to give you constructive criticism along your journey.

Ramiel, the only thing worse than ill fitting high waisted pants, are ill fitting high waisted pants/overalls. No good. I think Simon should have given you the same advice he gave Carly. Speak to whoever the heck is styling you! And speaking of that comment he gave Carly...I found it totally hilarious! It was sooo mean, but I'm thinking I like mean, so whatever. The red pants were ugly, so I agree with Simon. And thank goodness Paula wasn't wearing lace gloves tonight! I know that the ugly 80's styles are becoming "in" again, but if we get to the point where we the girls perm their hair and have the "bangs" again, I'd prefer being completely out of style for a while.

My favorite comment of the night was from good ol' Dolly Parton herself. I believe her exact words were "he's a funky lookin' boy." about Jason Castro. While I agree that he isn't exactly the most normal looking person on the show...who is Dolly Parton to say this? She isn't exactly not funky lookin'. A quote from T, because he loves it when I quote him on the blog. "Man, what happened to her face?" (speaking of Dolly herself.) Nice Travis, really nice. She seems totally nice though and who doesn't love Dolly Parton really? And I LOVED his performance tonight, and was quite surprised that Simon didn't.

The Mormons both did just fine. Brooke is just too polite not to love, and David A. sounded all silky again. I like them both.

Overall I was quite surprised that I enjoyed Dolly Parton night more than the Beatles nights...who would have thunk it?

Okay Idol lovers, what did I miss?

Dang! I missed Idol last night, I don't know what happened to my DVR, the kids must have messed with it, but I almost cried!! So thanks for the recap of what happened, it gives me a great visual (Ramiel- I really can't stand her tight fitting high waisted pants). Between your blog and itunes, maybe i can get the gist of the night. You'll have to tell me what exactly Simon said to Carly though!

By the way, I LOVE David Cook, his singing makes me weak in the knees! I'm glad to hear he had a good hair night!

This was hilarious. You are always right on.

I was waiting for your Idol recap! David looked so much better! I didn't have to turn my head and just listen this time, I could actually watch. And yes, who doesn't love good ol' Dolly!

I don't even watch Idol, but I loved reading what you thought of it. I am with you on the 80's thing.

I think I missed Idol this week??? I TVO it every week, did it go longer than an hour? Anyways, I thought Simon's criticism on the clothing was a little harsh, Carly looked like she was going to cry. Speaking of tears, little David brings tears to my eyes every time he sings (my husband totally makes fun of me).

You are too funny and I love reading this to see what you have to say. I just finished watching idol to see who was kicked off and I would have to say that I'm glad Ramiel is gone. I didn't mind her at first but she's started to get on my nerves maybe it was just her horrible outfits.

Dustin and Shelli Chambers said...

Holy cow, Hayley Jo Johnson??? Heck yes, its Shelli Webb! (I married Dustin Chambers, he is from your neck of the woods, west Smithfield) how are you? It was so good to look at your blog, it is amazing! You have the cutest girls!I'm just barely starting this blogging business, apparently I could learn from the best! Thanks for finding me! keep in touch!!!

i love reading about idol, cuz most of the time i miss it and i don't have tvo so thanks for the updates. I guess we are going to order pizza and eat at the salon after the class but you are more than welcome to come to both, craigs sister julie is doing the cutting class so it should be good. i just love you and think and pray for you often, you are always so strong.

Haha, there's a country girl in all of us. (As usual - ditto to everything else) The only good thing that came from the 80's is the music. And well - ME. ;)

Let's talk about Ramiel's pouty lip. this hasn't been discussed before that I know of. I can't bear to look at it anymore in this lifetime. Glad her and her lip are gone.
