American Idol 2008 Week 3: The Guys
Tuesday, 2008 March 4 - 8:58 pm
It's 80s night.

Luke "Perry" Menard: 4.0
"Jitterbug" from Wham. Um. Strangely appropriate for him, but this is just so cheesy, and not really what you'd call a vocal showcase. Mediocre and corny. I give him a 4.

David "Cheeks" Archuleta: 7.0
"Another Day in Paradise" by Phil Collins... and uh, Brandy. Another slow song, perhaps trying to play off last week's success? He needs to worry about being a little too easy-listening. It's not bad, a couple of wavery notes in there. Not as good as last week, and not a great song choice, but decent. I give him a 7.

Danny "Manuela" Noriega: 2.0
"Tainted Love", to kind of a funky rock beat. This is hideous. Pitchy. It's like a transvestite show. He's really, really trying to look like a girl. I give him a 2... though he'll almost undoubtedly make it to the next round, because he's this year's Sanjaya.

David "The Stripper" Hernandez: 3.0
"It's All Coming Back to Me". He's really going to try Celine Dion? Gawd, I hate the cheesy faces he makes. His pitch is all over the place, it's shouty, and he simply doesn't have the vocal chops for this song. I give him a 3, and that's only for the effort.

Michael "Aussie" Johns: 2.0
"Don't You (Forget About Me)". Good song; can he pull it off? The start is shaky; it's very karaoke and pitchy. It gets even pitchier as he goes. I don't like this at all; it's a very poor imitation of the original. I give him a 2. But he'll probably make it through anyway, on looks and personality.

David "Shaggy" Cook: 6.0
"Hello". Oh, it's way off-key to start. The guitar sounds horrible. It improves dramatically once the band comes in, though; it's a good arrangement of this song. Not bad, though it sounds and looks like Jimmy Fallon doing a skit. I give him a 6.

Jason "Battlefield Earth" Castro: 8.0
"Hallelujah". A bit of an odd choice. Mellow, subdued, pretty well controlled. Not terrible; not his best, maybe, but nice. I give him an 8.

Chikezie "Weezy" Eze: 5.0
"All the Woman I Need". Vocally not bad. I'm not a big fan of this song, but Luther Vandross suits him. He performed it well. I don't know if it's going to be appealing to the voters. I give him a 5.

My bottom three: Luke Menard, David Hernandez, Danny Noriega.
