My rambling and I know, important opinion of last night’s show is in edits. While working it up somehow the site had a malfunction, or I had a malfunction and it’s needing dire edit surgery,something I’ve not time for this morning. Instead, for now, I’ll just put up a few of my favorite moments/performances from last night.
I have decided to blame Crystal Bowersox and her tiny bag of trinkets on my tech issues , I think the hoodoo mommah zapped some whammy in my writing so let’s start with Bowersox and her return from Horrible Illness:
She was quite good.
Then there’s this, Siobhan Magnus. She’s genuinely and completely wonderfully strange. Mohawk and lip tricks and all. I fell in love with her last night.
Siobhan Magnus, “Think”:
That scream at the end, full of win. There was something oddly reminiscent of Taylor Hicks in her ability to just let it all out.
Lilly Scott, “A Change is Gonna Come” by Sam Cooke on acid.
I picked a video slightly off on purpose. Adds to the effect. When I watch Lilly I can’t help but think of The Corpse Bride. Tell me you see the same thing.
The Corpse Bride:
Well then, at least last night was marginally an improvement over Tuesday’s not even worthy of Karaoke, night.
