Season 11 Cuts To 24 Part 1 Reactions

Jen Hirsh is like a large Haley Reinhart with a little Siobhan Magnus mixed in. Certainly deserves to have a chance with the voters.

Creighton Fraker I've said all along is too thin in every way. I'm not sure why the judges like him. He is skilled, no doubt, but it's not appealing.

Lauren Gray reminds me of Allison Iraheta and Adele. Pretty ridiculous to not include her.

Joshua Ledet has plenty of voice, but I find it a bit harsh.

Haley Johnsen I didn't get much of a read on, which probably means she's not very distinctive, except that she looks a bit like a Viking girl.

Neco Starr is like a Bruno Mars Jackson. Bad decision to cut him.

Elise Testone's voice is powerful, but kind of deep and manly. And she sang "It's a Man's Man's World."

Reed Grimm is skilled, but annoying. Comparing him to Casey Abrams is not exactly good. Casey would have finished 11th if not for the judges' save.

Erika Van Pelt is another girl with a big deep voice, totally unneccessary with Elise there already.

Chelsea Sorrell is more like it. Pretty girl, pretty voice.

And Bailey Brown too? Oh my, gotta save for Tour tickets.

Richie Law served his purpose, but was totally expendable. Thanks for the laughs. He would make for a great used car salesman.

Heejun "Deadpan" Han is such a puzzle. How does he sing like that given who he is. Actually he explained it: He's channeling somebody. I wonder who. I don't think he'll cause "Hansanity," but I hope he goes far.

Jessica Sanchez (half-Filipina) seems a bit too Vegas-ready, overtrained. Seems much older than 16.

Phillip Phillips doesn't have Johnny Keyser to worry about anymore. Very unfair. Phillip is like a reincarnation of Joe Cocker, even though Cocker is still here. I guess I should have said clone.

Colton Dixon must have improved a lot from last year, because he was an easy choice to get through. Can he challenge Phillip?

Brielle Von Hugel doesn't appear to have any redeeming qualities. How did she get through?

Adam Brock's gravel pit of a voice annoys me. His missing his kids while pursuing his dream also annoys me. Leaving it for tomorrow was really stupid. Who cares?

  1. There's YouTube video of Chelsea Sorrell where she's really fat! They fixed her up for Idol.
