AI- not intelligence, but artificial

Umm, dudes, did AI suck for everyone or was it just me?

Here's my rundown:
Carrie #1-- That was the single WORST version of Sin Wagon I ever heard. Politics aside, I love the Dixie Chicks, and that song is driving and rowdy. She was neither. She was pitchy and the performance seemed to lack energy.

Bo#1- Hell yeah. Looked sweet, sounded great. Not as good as #2, but made everyone else look like amateurs...

Vonzell #1- Looked great. Song was scoopy and pitchy. Sounded more like LeeAnn Rimes' version than Trisha Yearwood's, but, hey, Trisha's was in the movie, LeeAnn's sold more records. Go Fig. Anyway, she was clearly off her game, and the tears afterward indicated that she was pretty rattled. Not great.

Anthony #1- How in the heck did I KNOW he would pick a song like that. But he was pitchy and too breathy (as usual). Big Suck, especially going last.

Carrie #2- I thought it was a better performance than #1, but was still off. A big stretch, and she looked terrible in that outfit.

Bo #2-- Damn. He was awesome except for the questionable bling-bling, lack of shirt and FLIP-FLOPS. Barefoot would have been cool. Pimp shoes cooler. But FLIP-FLOPS???

Vonzell #2 -- Damn that girl can sing. I thought she'd do that song on 70's night. It was nice to see. Nice look, nice energy. Good recovery from the tears.

Anthony #2- WTF??? The same song as Carrie? Didn't those 2 dudes write another song?? Damn. Made him look like a moron. He was better than her, but still bad, and the fact that she did it earlier made it worse.

Bottom 2: Anthony and Carrie

See Ya: Carrie.

Not because she was bad, but because I suspect Anthony'll get sympathy/vote for the worst votes and some Carrie voters will switch after that dismal performance....

Hell, I've been wrong for 6 weeks. As long as it isn't the cute cokehead :)

Can't believe I missed the flip flops!!!! I'm so rooting for Bo right now...

I don't know who will be eliminated this week. They all really had some low points! I'm thinking it might be Vonzell, but I'm generally wrong too!

I thought the whole show was a little weird but hey, I'm just part of the audience. :)

I think Anthony may go before Carrie (but I feel it should be Carrie). Amy Adams from AI Year 3 sung a much better "Sin Wagon".

By the way caltechgirl, you've been LINKED! Don't know why it took me this long.

I thought the Travis Tritt song was perfect for Bo. I feel so much better now that I'm not the only one I know who liked it.
