I’m not going to waste your time rambling about everything that happened on American Idol this week from beginning to end. I’ll go straight to the point. As we all know Karen Rodriguez was sent home even after performing, “Hero,” by Mariah Carey one last time for the judges, Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson. In my opinion, Thia Megia should’ve been sent home not Karen Rodriguez. These are the reasons why:
Karen Rodriguez didn’t perform quite well last week, but this week I liked her performance, “Love Will Lead You Back” by Taylor Dayne. Karen’s performance was much better than last week’s. She seemed to be coming back. Even Randy Jackson said, “Definitely better than last week. Welcome back.” Karen Rodriguez sings in Spanish, which that makes her unique. She’s proud of her roots. At least, she was making an effort to stay in the competition. I could tell she was.
Thia Megia has performed nothing but boring songs. Even Randy Jackson said that Thia’s performances had been boring to him. And I totally agree with Randy. Yeah, Yeah, so she has a beautiful voice. But all that Thia Megia has been doing for the past few weeks is stand on stage, and perform the same old type of songs, “ballads.” This week, Thia Megia performed, “Colors of the Wind” by Vanessa Williams. Another ballad…shocker!
It almost seems that Thia is not even trying to be in this competition. She’s playing it way too safe if you ask me. Too safe = boring. American Idol is not only about having a beautiful voice and looking pretty. American Idol is also about being creative, artistic, and unique. For example, performing different genres, or simply changing it a little, playing an instrument. Thia, this is a competition for God’s sake!
