April 19th, 2011
By



You like how I combo-plattered dat one yeah!? :P Das cause I know I could (potentially) get da fans of both Hawaii Five-0 AND American Idol to chat with me down below. I know, I know, shmall kine desperate, but whatdaheck... We go geev um one try anyway! ;)

#H50

Ho'opa'i - When a crime lord moves against the family of an undercover NYPD detective who infiltrated his organization, it's up to Five-0 to stop the policeman from exacting revenge.

As usual, there was active and amusing #H50 chatter last night on Twitter to go along with the show. Some notes on the show for us to talk about today:

  • Hilarious how Kamekona referred to SPAM as "the Hawaiian steak" and "the nectar of the islands"! But wea's da SPAM Musubi gundtfunnit? LOL!
  • The return of the ridiculous Waiola Shave Ice ad on McGarrett's cast. I wonder how much they paid to get on the show??? And how da heck do I get that kind of exposure for Oceanic Mobile up in the heezy? 8)
  • What did y'all think of Puff Daddy's/P Diddy's/Diddy's/Diddy Dirty Money's/Sean Combs' acting? Needs work ah? :P
  • And how about those Kia hamsters in the commercial? Cute or annoying?

Just a reminder, next week's episode is a rerun, but the following 3 weeks should all be new episodes to close out this first season! Woo hoo!


American Idol - Top 7

Here are my notes this week on the American Idol (Top 7) Contestants. Add comments for your favorites below!

  • Casey Abrams - Wasn't too fond of his last performance. Didn't quite get it. And what was with the standing O from the judges?
  • Haley Reinhart - Hopefully, she rebounds with a better performance this week or Lauren may be the only wahine left.
  • Jacob Lusk - I like that he's trying to sing songs straight forward nowadays, but still not too fond of his style.
  • James Durbin - Turned me off a little with his attitude towards the mentors last week, but gotsta give him props for standing up for what he believes in.
  • Lauren Alaina - Looking forward to another awesome performance from my favorite to win it all!
  • Scotty McCreery - Gotta give him credit for keeping his ego in check as of late (or at least acting like it for TV). His singing (or maybe song choice) is picking up too.
  • Stefano Langone - Here's one whose ego has gotten the best of him. He's my prediction to leave this week.

Aloha means goodbye:

My picks for the Top 3 finalists are:

  1. Lauren Alaina
  2. Casey Abrams
  3. Karen Rodriguez

Shooooots! Have a good one y'all!

American Idol Chatter - Top 8

April 12th, 2011
By



So the last time we dished on Idol, we had 13. Now, we're down to just 8 going into this week. Y'all still watchin'? Holla!

I gotta be honest. For the first time ever, I've been doing the speed-watching technique (I <3 my DVR!). Just not catching my interest this season for some reason. I fast-forward through all the nonsense chatter, and just watch the package before the contestants sing (to get a feel for their personality) and then their actual performance. I give that a few seconds and if it bores me to tears, it's more fast forwarding for me.

I actually watch everything (package and performance) on Casey Abrams (still seems humble and buggah makes me laugh), Haley Reinhart (why not?), Lauren Alaina (seems humble and is still my pick to win!), and Scotty McCreery (to see if I can catch more arrogance from him). The others, I'll just watch the first few seconds of their performance if anything.

Here's my previous notes from the American Idol Chatter - Top 13 blog, with updated, Top 8 notes. Add your own comments for your favorite contestants at the bottom!

  • Casey Abrams - LOOOOOVE this guy! He cracks me up! He reminds me of Will Ferrell and Seth Rogen combined. Plus he can SAAAANG, and he still seems humble! (I still feel the same. Thank goodness he got saved!)
  • Haley Reinhart - good eye candy (right rayboyjr?), plus she can sing pretty good too. Don't think she has what it takes to win though. Also looks like she might lose her temper at one of the judges down the road. (I still feel the same. American public is probably getting sick of her antics pretty soon.)
  • Jacob Lusk - pretty good singer, but don't really like the way he overstylizes everything. If he sang straight-forward, he'd be a lot better. (Still feel the same.)
  • James Durbin - Adam Lambert copycat. He can scream-sing ok, but not sure how he'll do with regular songs. (Still feel the same.)
  • Lauren Alaina - My pick to win. She's so naturally talented and sings without any effort. Seems humble too. I like that. (Still feel the same)
  • Paul McDonald - very quirky, but I like it. Seems like a nice guy and his smile is infectious. (Still feel the same, though I wonder if his style is getting repetitive?)
  • Scotty McCreery - CAN'T STAND HIM!!! You can just tell how conceited he is. He is his own #1 fan. Dear lord he better not win! I will admit that he has a good country singing voice, but I can't stand listening to somebody so into himself. He reminds me of last season's Michael Lynche! And he tries to act all nice and respectful, but I'm not buying it! :P (Still feel the same. Even J-Lo told him to not get into his own head too much! I LOVE IT! You can tell that he's trying to tone it down a little bit and act humble, but I'm still not buying it!)
  • Stefano Langone - pretty strong voice in the upper register. Seems nice, but talks too much. (He's starting to annoy me and needs to go. He still talks too much and seems to be getting conceited as well.)

Eliminated Notes:

  • Ashton Jones - way too much spunk/confidence for me. There's more show than singing so far to me. (Not a surprise at all that she got eliminated early.)
  • Karen Rodriguez - one of my favorite girls to win the whole thing. She can blow! (This was a slight shocker! I thought she could sing the lights out!)
  • Naima Adedapo - No idea why she made it. I can appreciate that she has so much passion for singing, but I still haven't seen anything worthwhile from her. I hope she proves me wrong, because I really think the judges made a mistake by not putting Robbie Rosen through. (Not really a surprise that she got eliminated)
  • Pia Toscano - OK, and pretty good voice. Need to hear more from her to have a better opinion. (WHAT IN THE HECK!!!??? I thought for sure she should've stayed on until close to the end. Maybe America assumed she would be safe???)
  • Thia Megia - kinda quiet, but can sing pretty good. That Michael Jackson comparison from Randy Jackson was a reach I thought, but she has a pretty good voice. Wanna see more personality from her. (She can sing, but it wasn't really a surprise as she lacked the personality for America to latch onto. I'm sure she'll do fine as she is still so young and talented).

My picks for the Top 3 finalists are:

  1. Lauren Alaina
  2. Casey Abrams
  3. Karen Rodriguez

Talk to me!
* Is it me or is Steven Tyler the worst judge ever invented? He says "Beautiful" like 100 times a show for everything and doesn't offer any constructive advice/criticism at all. I think I want Paula back! LOL!
* Can we all agree that J-Lo is awesome? She seems so genuine and that she really cares for the contestants. Her advice is always on point too.
* Have you guys heard about the budding romance between Casey Abrams and Haley Reinhart? Oooooh... rumors! LOL!
* What do you think of the contestants left? Any surprises?
* Who is your pick to win it all?

Have a good one y'all!
