American Idol started off with a bang tonight. We were able to view a picture of the judges as children. We also saw a picture of Ryan Seacrest. The song choices toight are from the year the contestant was born. Next they showed Phillip Phillips practicing but he was having some pain because of kidney stones. He stated that he needed to have surgery. He performed perfectly even though he had the surgery. If this is his sick day, Wow! Call 1-866-436-5701 to vote.
Jessica performed next. She performed Vicki Sue Robinson’s “Turn the Beat Around.” She did well, but the judges loved her sparkly pants best. The judges thought she could have picked a better song for her voice qualities. Vote for Jessica by calling 1-866-436-5702.
HeeJun picked a Richard Marx song title “Right here waiting.” HeeJun’s mother said that “when Heejun was a baby, he always woke up smiling.” Randy did not like his song at all. He said that it was “pitchy all over the place,” Jennifer and Steven sort of agreed but not so bluntly. To vote for Heejun, call 1-866-436-5703.
