American Idol Recap – Milwaukee

Delayed recap thanks to the most bizarre snow storm I’ve ever seen. At no point in time should a normal 30 minute commute take 10+ hours.  So it’s a day late,  but if you missed it last night or want a quick refresher of what you saw (or didn’t see), here’s my 10 words or less recap of each performance.

“Oh, there’s a new opening credits,” notes Maggie.  Only took 3 episodes for her to notice.

Idol is live (well it was six months ago) from Milwaukee, home of former Idol bronze medalist Danny Gokey, but more importantly this is a city of rich history.  Isn’t that right Alice Cooper?

(As always, contestants who make it to Hollywood are listed with an asterisk)

*Scottie McCreery – country version of former contestant John Stephens

Steven Tyler just uttered the rarely used phrase “f*** a duck,” to which Jennifer Lopez suggested they edit that to “suck a duck.”. Yeah, because that’s a lot more kid friendly.

Joe Repka – my friend Jamie Kline says it best, “why does he keep doing the claw?”

*Emma Henry – Steven Tyler says to 15-year old “you’ve got something there that I can’t quite put my finger on.”  That made me chuckle.

Kody Zalewski – thinks he’s Sinatra…maybe Frank Sinatra Jr.

Juanita Borges – this is who you date when you go to hell

Kamil Anthony – sounds like Lady Gaga in a blender

Kanisha Miller – aka Alicia “can’t sing on” Keys

*Naima Adedapo – Maggie – “funny, I work with someone with the last name Adedapo.”  Me – “Not surprising, that’s as common as Smith”

Jovan Raymond – sang almost as good as J-Lo

Chris Kammer – how is “Get Out The Brush” not a #1 hit?

*Jerome Bell – awesome, but why didn’t this guy sing at my Bar Mitzvah?!?

Weird DVR glitch cut off the next 36 minutes and skipped right to the next contestant.

*Steve Beghun – first surprise of season, never would’ve guessed he’d be good

Vernika Patterson – Richard Stamos can’t hit the high F, he always screws it up

Albert Rogers III – scary to know that there were two other Albert Rogers

*Scott Dangerfield – gets respect with a golden ticket to Hollywood

By the way, I’m not a big fan of her and find her musky annoying but damn Jennifer Hudson looks fantastic. I may have to seriously consider going on Weight Watchers.

Megan Frazier – rooting for Steelers in Super Bowl after this

*Alyson Jados – second mention this season about contestant being Steven Tyler’s daughter

There’s a previously on Idol tonight, apparently I missed an Asian girl singing Adele.  That’s about it.

*Chris Medina – as much as I make fun of Idol from time to time, it’s moments like this that remind how great it can be and how there are some genuinely wonderful people in the world.  Goosebumps and tears for me.  Watch the video below.

  2. Thanks Jarret, the video below has the studio version of the song. If it goes #1 i’ll give yiou your own gold record!

    I’m bringing the oral health excitement to the World. American Idol was just the beginning….

  3. Agree that Chris and Scott were the stand-outs in Milwaukee – Chris was basically Danny Gokey all over again (In terms of his story), while Scott reminded me a lot of Clay Aiken (geeky looks, and where did THAT voice come from?)

    Personally, I though Naima was best of the rest. Jerome was good, but for me Alyson was bot as good as other rock chicks we have seen over the years. And I haven’t seen a REALLY good 15-year old yet (at least, not until Nashville) – Jacee Badeaux was OK, but will get swallowed up in Hollywood, and Thia (I think that was her name) was good, but not top 12 material for me.
