We'll always have Paris
Or maybe we won't. No surprise tonight -- Paris managed to peak in her first audition for the judges. Admittedly, it was an awesome audition, but after that, despite her phenomenal talent, she just couldn't connect with the audience. I can't say what the problem was, but there was clearly a charisma gap.
I was an early Elliot booster, but I can't see him making it past next week. He's more interesting when he's not singing.
Speaking of which, our presumptive frontrunner Chris Daughtry is really getting on my nerves. He's like that song you loved the first time you heard it on the radio, but by the 100th time it got repeated, you come to loathe it. Live's "Lightning Crashes" comes to mind. Daughtry is a one-trick pony -- we've seen all he's got to offer. It's good, but it'll be the same next week, or next year.
