So a white guy with a guitar will win American Idol again. And I am okay with that. Quentin pissed me off with his bad attitude. I really liked Quentin, Quasiim and Rayvon this season. I also really liked Jax and Joey. But I am okay with these two.
Clark is technically the best singer out of everyone. He’s fantastic, and if he wins, I will be very happy for him. Tonight I thought he kicked ass with Georgia. I love a man at the piano. I thought for sure he was kicking Nick’s ass in the first two rounds.
But I love Nick. I want him to win for his dad. I want Nick to win for sentimental reasons. And then in round three, when Nick was singing his first single if he wins… HE BLEW CLARK OUT OF THE WATER. It was amazing.
Clark had a strong start and Nick had a strong finish. What is interesting to me, is that JLo so favors Nick and will not admit it. In round two, Clark does a fantastic rendition of Ain’t No Sunshine (when SHE’S gone) and JLo asks Clark who is the “she” he is singing about. It’s obvious to those of us with gaydar that Clark’s boyfriend has been in the audience this whole time and the decision has been made for him not to let the voting 15 year old girls know he is gay. JLo has to know this. Very shady Jennifer.
Jennifer has been all over Nick all season. She even agreed to slow dance with him during his audition. Keith said after all three rounds his pick is Nick. Harry gave round one to Nick ( I disagree) and round 2 to Clark (I disagree again).
I sort of feel like Nick is the more likeable person. Italian American dude with a dad who wanted to be a professional musician…bit time family involvement. The sentimental favorite. And then there is Clark who is not sharing his personal life completely… but is technically flawless.
I’m okay with whoever wins tomorrow night. But I am hoping those of you who watch will tell me who you like. Clark’s performance of Aint No Sunshine was my favorite of the night, my second favorite was Nick’s new single. I got the impression tonight that Clark was in first by a landslide and Jax and Nick were neck and neck. I’ve never seen the judges lean one way like this. I think they are trying to make it a horserace. I’m listening to Aint No Sunshine on replay while I create this post. Enjoy! These get taken down quickly.
