Dear DENNIS: Um. Yeah. Next…sorry dude. I don't really remember you, and VTM seems to have misplaced your video clip from the live show because I couldn't find it though I found everyone else's...
Dear DEVON: You creep me out. You just do.
You sang Fool’s Garden’s Lemon Tree. Well, I wonder why, I wonder how you GOT THIS FAR.
Go back and watch him sing. He looks creepy.
Dear KRISTOF: Pearl Jam’s Alive huh? Not bad. But not unforgettable.
Adrian is still waiting for the knock-out Rocky. Just letting you know.
Oh, and are you really going to keep your hair like that?
Dear MAUREEN: That was quite a bright red dress tent you wore.
If you’re going to go Whitney’s I’m Every Woman, you need to give us more crackhead energy. I know you were in the hospital before the live show, but you must have spent too much time in the morgue while you were there. WAKE UP!
Dear KATO: You nailed Natalie Imbruglia’s Torn, but I was so distracted by your pants that I couldn’t focus.
All I wanted to hear you bring the hammer down and belt out U Can’t Touch This all over the Idool stage.
Seriously. Did you pick your live show outfit or did you piss someone off in wardrobe?! Nightmare on the pants...
Dear JONAS: Rough start with the "Iiiiiiii Iiiiii wanna faaaaall from the staaaaars, straight into your arrrrrms". I have to admit I love the song but I had no idea it was by Simply Red? I kinda like you. But I want you to sing better. Because Manuel is cuter than you are and you both fill the same "type" for me. So one of you eventually has to go. At least for me.
Dear KEVIN: Jamiroquai’s Cosmic Girl? You could sing Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Girl and I would buy it.
You are so going to win Idool 2011. Well, you should. Now.
I can’t wait to see you and KATO sing something together.
MANUEL: Santana was probably cringing listening to you WHINE. Even IF you are adorable. If you sang this song to me I would say “forget about it” because you WHINE.
“Gimme your heart, make it real or else forget about it.” Yeah. Like I said. Forget about it.
Before I leave. I have to get this out.
No disrespect to any of the parties involved. But even you guys have to admit the uncanny parallelism between American Idol (original) hosts and the Idool 2011 hosts. Wowza.
But Ryan Seacrest did take OFF like a rock didn’t he? He and the Kardashians are BANKING. Good for him. But according to Davy, my hubby who was born here in Ghent, the Idool 2011 hosts Koen and Kris Wauters (brothers also by the way) are QUITE successful in Belgium.
Oh, and since I never shut up…the judges are nice and very constructive aka SOFT in their criticism. But I love Sylvia Van Driessche, the only chick judge of four judges in total. Her red lipstick is super bright but looks great on her skintone and hair color. Another judge that caught my attention in a big way: Koen Buyse. He is the “harshest” judge and so reminds me of Simon Cowell. Sigh. I do miss my Simon Cowell.
But I’m living in Belgium now and I’m married to an amazing Belgian man and I love Idool 2011.
