Week ten performances have come and gone. Have your feelings of admiration for some or loathing for others been changed? Time to fess up. Who are you digginí and whom would like to help show the door too?
Since this was the final performance show, this will also be the last Love List I just want to take a moment to thank each and every one of you who have expressed your thoughts throughout the course of this wonderful series. From the lurkers who came out of hiding, to the new posters who happened upon these boards one day, to the longtime DAW board posters who made this their weekly one-stop shop to express their thoughts. Iíve had a blast and I hope you did as well.
1. Marty Casey (6,4,2,4,1,3,6,2,1) Ė Okay Iíll be right up front, JD gave a better set this week but Marty gets my final #1 ranking. Quite simply - I want him to win. Being a genuinely nice guy from my home state of Illinois doesnít hurt either Not exactly sure why he decided to perform an acoustic version of Trees, the full version was much better. With Creep being his other song, he really needed to rock out before slowing down. Creep was hit and miss at times with a few cringe moments. With those negatives said, it really doesnít matter at this stage of the game because in my mind, Marty is the right man for the gig. He really is the only one left in this competition that I would feel compelled to go out and purchase the new INXS album.
2. J.D. Fortune (13,3,7,2,7,7,2,6,2) Ė Great set again, if I only didnít know about past behavior. Does INXS want a bad boy as their lead singer ... maybe? You could almost see the dollar signs in their eyes as he sung Pretty Vegas. Did he really lay a wet one on Dave? I think he did! Really wish he wouldnít have gotten wrapped up in playing a Mark Burnett reality show in the beginning. Being a schemer and plotter for this particular show was not the right choice. Should have just let his talent keep him on the bands radar screen.
3. Mig Ayesa (12,11,4,3,5,2,4,4,5) Ė Mig had two telling comments this week for me. First was the Jordis comment on the Sunday reality show. Even though Jordis was off the show, it was a new beginning for her. Wondering if heís thinking the same for himself. Second was at the performance show tonight. The fact that he hasnít been in the bottom three should tell the band something. Huh? So teenage girls who think heís a cutie and are voting non-stop makes him a good choice for an established band of 40 somethingís? Loree brought over a great quote in the spoiler thread, Paint it Beige. Clearly the theatre has taken hold. Much like Marty, Mig is a genuinely nice guy but when you compare the vocal cords between the two, Marty wins.
4. Suzie McNeil (14,8,12,8,6,4,3,3,3) Ė Wow! The tongue bath of Suzie was so unwarranted yet again. I believe they did it simply to justify taking her (the final female) to the finale. Vocally, Suzie was just plain sloppy tonight. I felt as though she was the first victim in the movie Jaws at times gasping for air. She should go this week but my money is on Mig.
Booted: Jordis Unga (2,1,1,1,2,1,7,1,4) Ė Oh my sweet Jordis, where to begin? Rather than ramble on and on about how much I love the girl, cause you all know I do, all Iíll say is that the anticipation of driving back from a music shop with my brand new Jordis Unga CD in my stereo is great. Jordis is a star and Iím glad she didnít win
And for the last time ... I showed you mine, now you show me yours.
