American Idol 2019: Top 10

Riley Thompson

If you have been watching or a fan of the show, American Idol just announced their top 10 out of 14 that the judges on American Idol selected them.

The judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry, and Lionel  Richie selected the contestants themselves for the past months, and they were satisfied by their choice. Ryan Seacrest did not choose; this is not America’s Got Talent.

Now it came down to the American Idol fans to choose who will be the top 10. Some of them were right, and some of them were wrong, but it was America choice. You have to pick.

As you may know, these judges are well respected in the music industry, and they know how to pick, but since it was America choice they have to choose who will likely to win American Idol 2019.   

All of the contestants were fantastic the night before especially there performance. Some of them connected with the audience and some did not. The music industry is a tough crowd to join, you may have a fantastic voice, but will the radio audience will like it? It’s all ways the voice of the singer that will move the audience to buy your CD or other formats.  

The top ten were:

Madison Van Denburg

Jeremiah Lloyd  Harman

Laci Kaye Booth

Alejandro Aranda

Lionel Hardy

Wade Cota

Walker Buroughs

Uche

Alyssa Ragu

Dimitrius Grahman

When Uche didn’t make it in the top ten, I don’t know what America was thinking. Lionel Richie picked him as one of his save this week, Uche is an entertainer, he entertains and performs his song. He knows how to attract the crowd. He connected with his audience and they dance to the song.  If you want him to perform at your wedding, he used to be a wedding singer and now he is on American Idol. Please vote him through. Don’t go by his looks, go by his performance and he is an entertainer. He can move a crowd.

Luke Bryan saved Dimitrius Graham, and this guy can harmonize and sing with other top celebrities. His voice is incredible. I am glad Luke saved him; he needs to be in the competition. His voice and his performance are fantastic.  I don’t care what people say about him. He can sing and perform. Go by his performance and vote for him next week. He should not go home. Forget about the Games of Thrones on HBO. He can control dragons with his voice.

Katy Perry save Alyssa Ragu she has a fantastic voice, and she sang a Katy Perry song “The One that Got Away.” It was better than Katy Perry. If people don’t vote for her, she will go home next week. So please vote Alyssa Ragu to be your American Idol. And don’t even think about Ragu Spaghetti sauce.  I bet the sauce wanted to vote for her too.

All the rest of the singers are great performers and entertainers they sang fantastic. Don’t let them go home. We have to vote for them. Get the app on the Apple Store app and Google Play store app. Remember you have to vote, if you don’t vote, you assume that they will be saved apparently, this is not a presidential race. This is American Idol. Save the contestant that you like the best.  

The contestants that went home are

Riley Thompson

Evelyn Cormier

Eddie Island

Ashley Hess

They did their best, and not everyone voted who they like. It’s a popularity contest, but they are fantastic performers and entertainers.

Vote for them, don’t assume they will be saved.

American Idol is different, they selected the top ten with the TV audience and people who did not vote, didn’t know it was on. It was on. It’s like people don’t care, they think it’s fixed and rigged. It’s not fixed or rigged if people voted someone will win. One time would not help. You can vote many times as you like.

Sarah Palin A Star is Born

I see why John McCain and Sarah Palin would not watch the movie. It was their relationship throughout the whole campaign and the making of a vice president. Who knew we can pick a vice president of the United States on YouTube, who picked O’Biden, I meant vice president Joe Biden?  I did not know he was Irish. Sarah Palin was coached to be vice president; she has to remember facts and figure, and even history. Steve Schmidt (Woody Harrelson), the senior adviser was preparing her with notes and flashcards about the common questions of what the press would ask. Even though she was a spit-fire when debating and putting some of herself out there, and she was great with people.

Senator McCain (Ed Harris) wanted a charismatic vice president to be on his team, and he picked Sarah Palin and the turmoil continued with her. She was missing her family, the press and the media was after her like a swimmer in the middle of the ocean infested sharks. What she did? She poked them in the eye.  She was a fighter. She had nervous breakdowns. The campaign manager was pressuring her to get it right say the right words and key words when debating. It would be nice to read the teleprompter once in a while verbatim. Ad-libbing was great for her and her campaign manager like it when she personalized the speech. She has to stick with the topic of discussion.

People are still saying today she wanted to be president, she writes books about her life and her family, and she likes doing book tours of her books.  How many times, would the press and media would ask the same question: “Are you going to run for  president?” She said “No” many times, it means no. She knows the pressure and the humiliation of the media.

Julianne Moore as Gov. Sarah Palin in “Game Change” on HBO did an excellent job portraying the governor. Julianne Moore got the mannerism and the voice of the former Governor Palin.  I could not tell, was it the real Sarah Palin or Tina Fey?

Steve Schmidt (Woody Harrelson), the senior adviser, is the war hero, and Senator McCain (Ed Harris) comes off as a crusty old soldier who follows orders but can’t help grousing. These guys did a great job, including Woody Harrelson trying to keep Governor Palin straight as possible.

Danny strong, wrote the acclaimed HBO film “Recount” about the 2000 presidential election an Al Gore film political picture, and now he wrote, “Game Change” adapted from the bestseller book about the 2008 presidential race.  The film is focused almost entirely on Sarah Palin and her national rise as John McCain’s running mate.

Danny Strong is a native ofManhattan Beach,California, and a graduate of the University of Southern California; he’s also an actor, and has appeared in episodes of Mad Men, Gilmore Girls, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, among other shows. Acting, though, has taken a backseat to his writing, and that’s not likely to change. He just signed on to write the screen adaptation of The Lost Symbol, the third installment of the Dan Brown thrillers, the movie versions of which feature Tom Hanks as Robert Langdon. Tom Hanks is also the producer of Game Change.

Would Danny Strong get nominated for an Emmy for his writing on Game Change? The movie is exciting to watch.

True Blood: Sookie’s Missing a Year

Watch True Blood on HBO Sundays @ 9pmIt’s been a year since True Blood and a year for Sookie Stackhouse moving forward in her life, and she did it within two weeks and into the future. She was in Fairy’s land when this happened in the last episode and came back with her granddaddy (Gary Cole).

Love really bites when two vampires fall for Sookie, Eric bought Sookie’s house and claims he’s the only one who didn’t give up hope on her. Bill has been named the Vampire King ofLouisianaand has under his employ a Wiccan named Daisy. This is not good. Vampires and witches?

Jess and Hoyt are living in “domestic bliss.” It cannot be easy for them as a couple, but we’re so glad to see them making a go of it. Can vampires cook for their mortal human boyfriend? She should have taken Rachel Ray cooking class. Have Rachel Ray to make a guest appearance, and Jessica can bite her, and she can inherit her blood to cook a decent meal for her man.

Jesus and Lafayette are still going strong, though Jesus keeps pushingLafayetteto explore his magical powers and to join a coven. There are both warlocks, male witches,  this show has more supernatural stuff than regular dramas.

Jason Stackhouse is a full-on sheriff’s deputy and Sheriff Andy is hooked on V. That should go well. In addition, Andy’s sister is a new supporting character, played by “Dexter” alum Courtney Ford. We aren’t sure being Andy’s sister is a step-up from being a serial killer’s daughter, but we’re excited to see the actress in Bon Temps.

Tarahas left Bon Temps and heterosexuality behind. She is now a super-sexy, ripped cage fighter inNew Orleanswith a girlfriend, which is fun and something we hope they explore. What a spider bit her to have a super strength? Oh yeah a vampire bit her and she has his blood and now his strength too. She can be a vampire wonder woman.

Arlene and Terry are raising little Mikey, who Arlene is just convinced is evil. Thankfully, Terry is there to counteract her craziness. Pulling heads out of a Barbie doll, that’s not babies do. But how she got her baby out? Did she scream? A lot going within a year?

Sam has found some new friends who are shape-shifters and are helping him with his anger issues. Stop horsing around!

His brother Tommy, in the wake of being shot, is now apparently living the straight and narrow and hanging out with … Hoyt’s mom? They should killed him off and let him lived in a veterinarian hospital, poor dog… Hoyt’s mom, for real? Let a wild bear take care of him, he’s annoying.

And finally, there are some witches in town. Fiona Shaw is the leader of a local coven, which both Daisy and Jesus belong to and which Jesus is pushingLafayetteto join. WithLafayette’s power, the coven manages to bring a dead bird back to life. Even though it is only for a few minutes, having power over a dead creature may give the vampires some life after being dead, they are already dead.

True Blood on HBO Sundays at 9pm and encores through the week.
