Try #2 to not get invested in this one-week semi-final format. I think for these girls its less about who I’m invested in- and more about who just has the potential and ability to be a contender. We can’t mess around with girls who will go nowhere against the boys. Dare I remind you that last season- FIVE FREAKIN’ FEMALES went out before a single dude. Another sausage fest of a season CANNOT happen. Not when these girls have potential….
Hollie Cavanaugh!- Its a cryin’ shame they didn’t feature her at ALL during the auditions. They hid her comeback-kid narrative- and for what reason? SHE’S AMAZING!!
Jessica Sanchez- Thia Magia WISHES she was this chick—- a Mexican/Filapino with some Sass! Girl will go far and I’m totally on board!
Erika VanPelt- What About Love- I love love love her alto— I hope she doesn’t get swallowed up in the crowd. Her tone is incredible.
Jen Hirsch- Not her best tonight- and she definitely lost the “One and Only” battle to Elise—- but she has great potential (look at some of her Hollywood week stuff)
Skylar Laine- Surprise the night! Marta kinda dug the rockin’ Country girl. She came out swinging and I appreciate that—— I think she deserves to get through.
Elise Testone- Like her maturity, experience, and personality. I wonder how long Elise, Jen, and Erika can work the same side of the road—- cause I like them all.
Chelsea Sorrell- Sang Carrie just alright and at the top of the show- no chance.
Brielle Von Hugel- Eehh- She won’t be able to pull through her bad “stage mom” edit from Hollywood week.
Hallie Day- Why so Serious? Put a smile on your face, sweetheart. It didn’t stand out.
Shannon Magrane- Miss USA pageant BIG TIME. She was no where near the ballad capability of Hollie tonight- plus she’s a little dead behind the eyes- too young.
In the Red
Baylie Brown – I was actually rooting for her coming in to it— but that Amazed was well, not amazing. At all.
Haley Johnson- Sweet Dreams Beyond the weird Sweet Dreams song choice, wonky vocals, and a weird persona, she is blonde (like many) and has a name that will get confused with Hollie and Hallie.
And so—- my dream Top 13 (Whether through votes or Wild Card….)
And…what the heck- Heejun :)
