Danny Gokey's back story touched a nerve with me, and I love his voice. He also seems like a stand up, grown up guy. I like that he is a sincere guy.
Adam, probably has the most talent of every contestant, but I just don't dig him. I have some friends who don't like him, cuz he bats for the other team. ::Like I care:: Some who don't because he wears more make-up than 1988 Tammy Faye Baker.::Don't hate--Appreciate:: Still others who don't because of what he did to Ring of Fire. ( That was kinda crazy! Poor Johnny Cash is still rolling over in his grave!) But for me, I just have no interest in him. He has to "frankenstein" every song, and I don't find him personally compelling. He has the voice of an angel, but so far he doesn't sing anything in a way that makes me want to listen.
Allison, is a cutey to me. I like her rock-ee vibe, but to me she is blah. Now, I will say that she shows waaaaaaaay more poise and polish for a girl of 16 than any I've met, and to be doing what she is doing is phenominal! So, snaps for Allison. ::snaps snaps:: But, I'm not that interested in what she's going to sing next. I also hate that hair. I think she'd be much edgier with black and purple or something, but that bright red, is kinda hard on her features and coloring. (or maybe my tv is going out. It's possible!)
Chris is way cute and if I were 22....I think he's waaaay marketable and has a good voice. I don't think it's the best in the competition, but it's darn good. He also, seems to be a down to earth guy. I hope his young marriage can stand the strain that the music business can bring, with touring and all that.
Matt, I'm glad the judges saved him last week, cuz I like him better than Lil. I'm not sure how marketable he is, and I think he has a decent voice, but I figure he'll be gone soon. I don't think he should make it to the finals.
So, that's my wrap up of the final five. Now....who do I think should make it to the finals? Adam and Danny. I want Danny to win, but figure Adam will. Those judges are all about Adam. Of the final 7, who would I like to have dinner with? Anoop, Danny and Chris. For some reason they just look like people I'd enjoy chillin with.

Reader's Choice for Spring Reading Challenge
It just goes to show you that you really can't judge a book by it's cover. My heart was so torn for her, because you could see the whole audience as well as the judges rolling their eyes. Then she opens her mouth and turns everyone into an instant fan. I love it!! You see everyone's mouth drop open, and it kinda feels good for the dowdy lady to sock it to all those who only saw what's on the outside and not what God given talents could be on the inside....Shame on all of us, who prejudge!

So, I love Saturday Night Live. I have since the beginning, when my parents wouldn't let me because it was too subversive. My older brother watched it, and I would do what I could to sneak in and watch. This is one of my favorite skits of all time. It took me a long time to find a version that I could embed here. So, since this probably belongs solely to SNL, I'll make sure to put a plug in for them. Don't give up on SNL, when one of your favs leaves the show. It just means that there are new favs coming. So, here it is...Cowbell!
Take On Me by A Ha. They were from Norway, and at one time one of our exchange students was from there.
