Thoughts of the day:
American Idol was pretty good today, BUT not everyone did their best! I was impressed by Adam, Alison, and Anoop the most. Anoop (who I was worried for) did QUITE well tonight; he was near perfect in my mind! He has a LOT of soul. Kris is VERY cute, but he doesn’t leave much of an impression. I felt a LITTLE bad for Scott b/c he tried to do something different, and it totally backfired. Lil was good (as usual), BUT too much like Tina Turner; she seems very soulful and mature for her age. Lil already has the chops to be a good stage presence, as do Matt and Adam. Matt is a good performer (as I noted before), BUT I don’t think he has as much raw talent as Lil, Alison, etc. Alison is TRULY gifted; she reminds me of Mariah Carey, Pink, and Kelly Clarkson. I liked her outfit tonight, too! Adam is on top right now b/c he is talented, confidant, AND unique. (It was COOL when Simon gave him a standing ovation).
Law and Order: Special Victims Unit tonight was all new! Too bad Olivia wasn’t on; Mariska wasn’t feeling well for a time. Delroy Lindo (who has crucial roles in Malcolm X and The Cider House Rules) did a TERRIFIC job as the cranky veteran detective who came in to help w/ the case. You can’t tell when this guy is acting! (I found out that he’s actually a Jamaican Brit.) I think they should bring in his character again. Eliott related to him as a cop and as a father.
I’m REALLY glad that Stephanie March is back, even though she’s still under “Special Guest Star.” She’s just as pretty and in shape as before; I LOVE her glasses! I wonder how long Alex will stick around…
BUT the big question- how can this actress be married to (celeb chef) Bobby Flay and stay so Manhattan high society slim!?
