I almost missed the elimination show because I had to work late tonight. The line at the drive-thru was really long so they asked if I could man the fry station for a little longer. They obviously don’t realize my importance to the blogging and Rock Star community.
So, could that encore have been a little more rehearsed? That’s just the kind of cheese that can get MiG a gig on QVC if this INXS thing doesn’t work out. If I was Marty I would have kicked MiG’s ass for making come up there and sing another song like that this week. But I’m not Marty, so he did the cool thing and just kept his microphone off and lip synched for a couple minutes while trying to cop a feel from Jordis. He should have jumped in and re-summoned the dark side during the encore to remind MiG that this is a competition to be in band and not a Sunflower Girl campout.
But again, those crazy Pacific Islanders, Australians, and Asians laid the hammer to Suze and she joined Deanna and Jessica in the final three.
Suzie – By My Side: For the first time, I thought she looked OK despite the really bad suburban housewife look. I didn’t think her performance was extraordinary, but it’s like taking the SAT to get into community college. You just show up, work the scantron for a couple hours and move on. It’s not like you’re going to Harvard or something.
Jessica – Mystify: Why didn’t she dress that way for us during the performance show? I thought she did a nice job, but seemed to be getting cocky in the elimination round. Wonder if she got that advice from JD?
Deanna – Never Tear Us Apart: You know my stance here. It’s a Buffalo Stance. So don’t you get fresh with me. I like her, but only as a friend and not as a rock singer. She did OK tonight, but is not going to fill any stadiums fronting this band. And has she always done that Joe Cocker hand thing or have I just noticed it this week?
I was digging that outfit Brooke was wearing, but that ridiculous necklace was covering too much stuff up. Some people don’t need to “peacock” and that means you, Brooke, so stop listening to Dave. It’s bad enough that we have to spend time here giving the contestants advice, but I expect more from our hosts.
Oh, and Jessica is not right for their band, INXS. I was hoping that she would stick around just for fun, but I guess I was wrong. However, she was an inspiration to us all and we need to live our lives as a Jessican, and not a Jessican’t. Godspeed, CoverGurl.
