This is it Idol fans! The top 36 have been chosen! The Judges' mansion is the newest twist in this year's Idol season and I gotta say...at least it's a more interesting background to look at over and over again.
It sure is Julie. I want a big cushy chair to write this blog in! Why is it that Paula can share her jewelry, but not her furniture? Come on Paula!
Well, it looks like Artie has let us down, and decided to be a no show tonight, so let's get cracking Daphne!
Let's talk about the first person to make it through. This guy had the entire day to chill because he was sent through first. Who was it? None other than our favorite American Idol geek, Anoop Desai. I love this guy. I liked him from his audition. He's got a great voice, and well, let's just say I always had a thing for geeky guys (Example: Clyde Collins).
I like this guy, Anoop. He is definitely not something we've had before. I had a feeling he was different enough to make it through. Von Smith was the next one to make it. He was totally freaked out...you could seem him breaking out in hives on his neck. He went way overboard his first day in Hollywood, but his last song he was able to rein himself in. Luckily the judges liked his improvement and kept him around.
Next up we had the first "sing off" between Cody Sheldon and Alex Wagner-Trugman. These two guys became friends during Hollywood week, and are now asked to SING TO THE DEATH.
