LA Reid- The Boys- You know I'm an old. I remember when LA was a young man hisself, with a group called the Deele. He and his friend Babyface took the world by storm with a pocketful of dreams and a soaking wet head of jheri curls. As you can see, time has taken a toll on his hair. It's gone! You know what else is gone? LA Reid's mind. Since his cognitive facilities aren't what they used to be, he enlisted help of the lovely Miss Rhianna to help.
The Style: After a bunch of corny performances, the criminal who gave us
Final Picks- Marcus Canty, Phillip Lomax, Chris Rene, Brian Bradley
Lef' Behind- Nick Voss- Voss was the young man who crossed TV biopic Elvis with Vanilla Ice and Michael Jackson. Blech!
The Style: For the most part, Nicole was patient with that ragtaggle army that performed before her. Make no mistake, some of our friends like the wedding singer and the burrito maker had seen better days. Leroy Bell of Bell and James fame and Dexter Haygood from Xavion were part of the contestant. Ron Isley was set to audition by he was turned away at the last minute.
Final Picks: Dexter Haygood, Leroy Bell, Joshua Kracjik, Stacy Francis.
My Two Cents- I like Dexter Haygood and Stacy Francis the best. Scherzinger made a tough call sending Elaine Gibbs and James Kenney home, it was tough but fair...
Paula Abdul and Pharrell Williams- Group Competition- Any else creeped out by how lucid Paula Abdul is? I am but I'm not surprised. Her meds have been adjusted, she's back to new. Joining her to judge the groups was Pharrell Williams. I haven't seen him since 1999. To be honest, this was the proverbial short straw, no one cares about the group. They're all boring. No Temptations or Dixie Chicks to be found.
The Style: I could be mistaken but Paula seemed a little bored. I know I was. Thankfully she did cry with some of the folk she sent packing. That's class...
Final Picks: The Brewer Boys, Lakoda Rayne, The Stereo Hogzz, InTENsity.
The Style: Unctuous? Simon cut a creepy figure in his slacks, bare feet and showboating Ray-Bans. Like everyone else, Simon had 8 women to choose from he also had his favorites, non-singers Tiah Tolliver and Simone Battle. Left alone to his own devices (with help from a few odd singing coaches) Simon made short work of a few of the more talented singers not only in his category but the competition as well. Simon's a fool!
Final Picks: Tiah Tolliver, Simone Battle, Drew Ryniewicz, Rachel Crow
