American Idol - Straight Up!?
I am not sure how I feel about Andrew Garcia going home last night on Idol (Katie was booted too but honestly I could care less about that one). I really enjoyed Andrew during auditions (the footage with his family was great) but (and this is a big but) when he arrived on the show, none of his songs came close to his near perfect rendition of Paula Abdul's song, Straight Up. Plus his story was not played up in the way that Big Mike's was. As the judges constantly chastised Andrew for not having a personality (I thought his smile was great) Big Mike was crying, playing up his new baby or discussing his "guns". It was his time to go (I guess) I just wonder if others should have gone first. As for the final seven...I am not completely sure where I stand except to point out that Tim has surprised me and Siobhan is still screaming.
