Syesha Mercado blogs:

Tonight was amazing! I had family in the audience and a lot of the Idol Crew from Season 7 was there. The only bad part about the night was that I didnt have enough time during the signing outside to reach everyone. Sorry guys. I love you and feel horrible for that. They made us leave and get on the bus. The schedule is really tight. Sorry! Hopefully Ill see yall in another city. I love you!

Oh, I got my dress back ¦.We made a few changes and thank GOd it worked, but it took a lot of preparation. It all good though! TOday was sooo much fun and the meet and greets were long. SO, that why it took some of us longer to get outside to fans. We love you guys and hate when we cant meet everyone.

Thread for chat, photos, recaps, videos ¦ETC. If youre there tonight, send me your STUFF. mjsbigblog at ¦

Our CarieB will be at the show tonight. I’m sure there will be MORE from her later.

  1. Did anyone record Chikesie? Someone PLEASE record Chikesie — all songs from the floor!!!!


  2. Just got home and have lots to say but have a hamdful of houseguests (rude of me to be typing this but hey, we have our priorities, right?) Will have to recap in the am. Suffice to say Cookie was the STAH! and the whole show was awesome. I shocked my DH when I came home and said that MJ was “sex on a stick” on his version of IAWBIAW. Cookie was a complete show stopper. OK, more in the

  3. Just got home too- boy, I wish the sound at Staples was better. Gotta get family to bed- more later. YUMMY COOKIE!

  4. Yeah Patchchat…I would LOVE some video footage of Chikieze.

    Can’t wait to hear how DC did in my former hometown. Wonder if he will be in studio while in LA to work on album?

  5. Just got back from Staples. A lot less cheesier this year, eh? Though i did like all the group numbers of years past. Anyway, I went with my mom and brother, my mom having never seen the show, my brother occassionally. She said she liked “the dreads guy” the best because he “seemed earnest with all his wacky facial expressions” and that his voice was “different and unique sounding,” unlike some others who just sounded generic for their type of music (ie Syesha or Cook). I agree about Syesha but my dear ole mom hates rock music so… Guess she’s not a Cougar for Cook. That’s kinda a relief;)

    Overall, I could have done without 1/2 of Chikezie’s numbers and ALL of Ramielle and Syesha’s. Yawn. KKK continues to surprise me. Hated her on the show, but i dig that she’s actually showing a bit of personality on tour. Though she’s still riding a horse on stage I see. Michael Johns was the first of the night to really get the crowd on their feet, but then, who couldn’t with We Will Rock You? Carly did an awesome high kick on her first (?) song, though I was secretly hoping for a Constantine scenario there, hee. Brooke was pleasant, as expected…how does she manage to talk for like 10 seconds between songs and seem like the NICEST person on the planet? Gotta love her.

    I’m not an Archuleta fan but damn if he doesn’t have an amazing voice live. Stand By Me was A-mazing. God i hate myself for saying that I’ll probably buy his album too. Anyway, I noticed Archuleta and CAstro were both wearing red shoes. Kinda cute. Speaking of Castro, he sounded more twangy than on the show. I haven’t seen any tour videos, so i don’t know if his inner twang just’s been brought out on the road or what, but yeah…really twangy. Castro was the first where the screams and yells started to become freakishly loud (and then it just got worse for the Davids), to the point that there’d be screams after every frikkin line he sang. I felt like he rushed his set and between-song banter, cuz next thing I know he’s saying he’ll see us all next time (how about date night tomorrow, hmn?)and scooty-dos off stage. Castro! Come back! I wuv you!

    I thought Cook wouldn’t be able to even get through his numbers the cheers were so loud. At one point he just broke off during Hello for the longest time and just started laughing and grinning because the cheers were drowning him out. No denying he’s the crowd favorite. The cheering generally went: loudest for Cook, then Archuleta, Jason, Michael, and then everyone else. I did find it funny that Syesha kept asking the crowd to stand up during her numbers and hardly anyone obeyed.

    After the show all i wondered was, where the hell is my free poptart??? Rip-off.

  6. riaspark17,
    Thank You for the fun recap.
    I’m still laughing about your final comment, “Where the hell is my free poptart?”

    Other than the poptart character parading around and taking pictures, I didn’t see any free poptarts in Glendale either.

    Did you catch some of the red and blue streamers that dropped from the ceiling during the finale?

    Glad you had fun and loved the concert!

  7. Thanks for that great recap, ria. :)

    She said she liked à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“the dreads guyà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬  the best because he à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“seemed earnest with all his wacky facial expressionsà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ 

    I like your mom. Heh. ;)

    CarieB, Diva, looking forward to your recaps (and pics, videos, maybe), too. :)

  8. Looking forward to more tomorrow!

    But Michael being “Sex on a Stick”, I coudn’t agree more.

    IAWBIAR…gets more sultry, sexy , and soulful everytime he
    he sings it……………Love MJ.

  9. have to get to work, so I can’t watch these till later, but I am glad you guys had a great time!!!!!

  10. I love these recaps. Thank you so much, everybody who has written them.

  11. Wow, what a show that was! Our seats were too far away for me to get any pictures or video worth looking at, but here’s my take on how the night went.

    It was 10 minutes to showtime, and having climbed our way up to our seats, my sister and I were anxious for the show to get going. A very excited 12 year old girl took her seat next to my sister and happily asked who our favorite idol was. Sister responded David Cook, and the girl responded “IloveDavidArchuleta!!!” with an enthusiasm of epic proportion–it was cute.:)

    Once the annoying announcer guy was done yelling and the giant pop-tart was done dancing (seriously), things finally got underway and Chikizie took the stage. He was very excited and declared, “I’m home!” More than anything, he has such a joyful presence on stage–he was loving the fact that he was there and performing, and I enjoyed his set. More than I did of what he sang on the show; he can really, really sing. He sang a song for his mom and dad who were there, it was very sweet. I hope good things happen for that guy, he deserves it.

    And then…Ramielle began her set. I really want to have nice things to say about this girl, really I do, but I just can’t. I was incredibly underwhelmed, and you could almost feel her running out of steam by the time she got to her last song (Maroon 5–each word was far too punctuated, as if she were out of breath). Seemed like she was giving it her best, but it just couldn’t stack up to the other performers.

    And then…Michael Johns began his set. Good God. The crowd went nuts, and with good reason–he was unbelievable. I really liked him on the show, but after that I have to say that I love him as a performer. The excitement was palpable when the “We Will Rock You” beat started, and his entrance being raised up from below the stage was PERFECT. IAWBIAR…yeah, sex-on-a-stick pretty much says it best. Yum. The more blues he can infuse into his music the better as far as I’m concerned, he sounds brilliant when he does. Flawlessly performed, I loved it!

    As for Kristy Lee Cook–I’ve never been a big fan, and while I thought she did a nice job performing and was very energetic, I couldn’t bring myself to enjoy it. My sister is a bigger country fan than I am and she liked her a bit more, so maybe that has something to do with it. Something about the tone quality of her voice has just never resonated with me, and I don’t think it ever will. For those that like her, it seemed like she was enjoying herself and she definitely played to her strengths (upbeat country, God Bless the USA, etc). So a solid performance, just not one that I enjoyed.

    Carly! I had been so excited to see her, and she didn’t disappoint. However, I’m not sure that starting out with Evanescence was the best way to go-Amy Lee has some BIG vocal shoes to fill, and highly trained ones at that. Carly certainly has the pipes to match her, but the control that it takes to sing that song just wasn’t quite there for some of it, IMO. Loved the fan/windblown hair look though, that was fun.:) I enjoyed her last two songs much more, she rocked them out. Loved the badass high-kick too, it was great.:) I love how much passion she can infuse her singing with, it’s not a skill every performer has. Overall a fun, fantastic performance and I can’t wait to see more of her!

    More to come…

  12. I was at last night’s show with my 2 daughters, who are big Jason Castro fans. At least they were until last night, when David Cook rocked the arena. Jason’s tunes on itunes are beautiful, but Cookie really knows how to play the live stage. We couldn’t hear what any of the performers were saying, except for Cook, because they don’t have that speaking to a stadium skill yet.

    We waited by the buses for fan meet n greet beforehand, but the Idols never came out. There was an airplane with a banner that said “Jason U R Our Idol [Heart] The Dreadheads” which was pretty amazing. We even stood near VoteforCastro, who had organized the airplane with donations from the Dreadheads. AND SHE DID NOT GET TO MEET JASON. At least not beforehand. And judging from afterwards, when he came out LAST to sign autographs, and the white goateed handler stopped him from signing any at all, I don’t think she or anyone got any contact with him afterwards. Everyone else came around and signed stuff.

    Oh, and a little tip. We had bought a poster. Don’t do that, buy the 8×10 of all the idols. Only Chikezie signed my poster. Thank you Chikezie! And, we were 3 or 4 rows back in autograph signing, which was bad. Why not have the Idols sit at tables and have fans line up in front of them, instead of have them come out to the fans?

    I was thrilled to get pictures of Carly’s husband, Brooke White and her husband together, and Jeff Archuleta who was very nice to everyone.

    Anyway, enough about the autographs and pictures. The show was a lot of fun. It was a great experience and totally worth it. I don’t think Ramielle was that bad, she and Chikezie are the only ones who can dance. She was not able to be heard on her last song, tho. Kristy Lee Cook did not wow the audience, which is not a big country music audience it seems. Other than that, everyone was really well received. And Chikezie is a very talented party starter!!

  13. I love how Paula isn’t even trying to refrain from keeping her hands off Cookie.

  14. One other tip – there was a whole lot of confiscated signs outside of the arena. The signs needed to be smaller than 11×17 to be let in. I had never heard this, and apparently many people did not either.

    I love how Paula isnà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t even trying to refrain from keeping her hands off Cookie.

    Hehe. Queen of the Cougars, I guess….

    Loved the blush and laugh when she asked about “his love life”. And, how cute was Jason, pining for his girlfriend?? Awww….


    From the Word Nerd Home, there are also reports that Randy Jackson was in the audience, sitting with/near Paula.

  16. I was at the show last night. I’ve seen them so many times now that it probably wasn’t as big a thrilll as it was for other people, but it was interesting to see the crowd reactions.

    I agree with what everyone has said about Ramiele. What a disappointment that girl turned out to be. She was so great on the first show and then nosedived after that.

    Chikezie was really on. Owned the stage and showed a lot of range.

    MJ was terrific too. Powerful vocals and spot on.

    Kristy — I grew to like Kristy a lot on the show. She is a confident performer with a decent voice — better than Pickler’s. She’ll have a nice country career and make cute music videos.

    Carly — Man, she killed it on that Heart song. Sounded EXACTLY like Heart, with perhaps even more powerful pipes. Not sure where a voice like that fits in to today’s music scene, though. What do you guys think?

    Brooke — Biggest surprise of the evening for me. Her three songs were perfect choices for her, and I thought she was perfect on “1-2-3-4” and “Yellow.” She showed a lot more range and vocal strength than we saw on “Idol.” She could have a career.

    Jason — Another surprise for me. He has a freshness about him that’s just, well, refreshing. I just don’t know how that translates into something current.

    Syesha — Surprised how big her audience reception was before she even started. She looks gorgeous, and she frigging KILLED on her third song — left it all out there on the stage. Audience cheered wildly for a solid minute at the end. I wonder what’s in store for her.

    Archie — I know this is largely a Cook audience in here, but Archuleta’s vocals are just so pure and soaring. He was a different performer than we saw on Idol; he’s completely relaxed now and caught up in the joy of singing. It’s a beautiful thing to watch. Does the guy EVER hit a bad note? Those songs are difficult to pull off, and he just nails them every time. Fabulous.

    Cook — Terrific vocals, as always. I love Cook’s lower register; his voice is strong no matter what note he’s singing. As a performer, can I say he’s a little dull? Compared to some of the others, like MJ and Syesha, who put their heart and souls into every tune, Cook just kind of stands there and sings. Maybe that’s just the rocker vibe. But I think he could do a little more to get people going. Still, he comes across as likeable and accessible; thankfully, he’s lost whatever smugness he once had.

    Was this the largest crowd they’ve played in front of yet? Staples holds about 18,000, and it’s a cavernous place. The Idols seemed overwhelmed.

    Kind of a dumb, unimaginative show overall. More duets, dammit!

  17. Loved the ET video with Paula:

    Ramiele: Our bus smells like roses. What does your bus smell like?

    Michael: Rock and roll.

  18. Thank you for the awesome recaps! I’m living vicariously through all of you :)

    Gwendolyn, thank you for that ET link. Very cool. But damn, Paula wants her some Cookie doesn’t she? LOL, he’s the only one she kept touching. Poor guy. She’s the original Cougar for Cook.

  19. I agree, GwendolynD, Paula was so very touchy feely in that vid.. and only with Cook I noticed.

    Also, waiting on tenterhooks for the conclusion of your review Jolene.

  20. Thank you for all the recaps, peeps. :)

    I’m sad to consistently read bad reviews of Ramiele. I hope the girl is able to do better in the succeeding shows. Maybe she’s singing songs that aren’t right for her and should change her set some. Perhaps she should have included You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me in her set. It’s quite interesting that she’s the only one who is not singing on tour any of the songs she sang on the show.

    Archie à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬’  I know this is largely a Cook audience in here, but Archuletaà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s vocals are just so pure and soaring. He was a different performer than we saw on Idol; heà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s completely relaxed now and caught up in the joy of singing. Ità ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s a beautiful thing to watch. Does the guy EVER hit a bad note? Those songs are difficult to pull off, and he just nails them every time. Fabulous.

    I have to admit that of all the videos (even including my fave Jason’s) I’ve seen from the tour, Archie’s Apologize and Stand By Me are my biggest favorites. *hides from the Castro fans, heh*

  21. Thanks for your review, Caffiend. I’m sorry to hear that Ramiele isn’t getting better at each show, I feel for the girl. I haven’t been to any of the concerts but having seen clips of Cook’s performances from each concert stop so far, I would have to disagree with him being dull though. He certainly doesn’t come across that way in the footage I’ve seen. He seems to totally rock out on his performances.

    Love that clip of Archie’s “Apologize”, he does a great rendition of the song.

    I’m looking forward to seeing some clips of Chikezie, I’ve heard pretty good things about his performances.

  22. As a performer, can I say heà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s a little dull?

    Of course! You’re entitled, dear. :wink1_tb: However for me, at this point, he can pretty much sit on the stage and stare into space for an hour, and I’d call him a rock star. I’d say he owns it.

    Ià ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢m looking forward to seeing some clips of Chikezie, Ià ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢ve heard pretty good things about his performances.

    So am I.

    I really wish he’d done “She’s a Woman”. That was his defining moment on the show…. I guess some moments can’t be recreated.

  23. As a performer, can I say heà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s a little dull? Compared to some of the others, like MJ and Syesha, who put their heart and souls into every tune, Cook just kind of stands there and sings.

    I guess it’s a POV thing, but most fan and media reviews put a strong emphasis on how Cook is best at working the crowd. I’m biased as hell, but I have to say that from the Tubey vids, I tend to agree.
    Also, on that note, there was a huge discussion over on TWOP about how he’s possibly too much into entertaining the crowd, to the point where it’s almost distracting from the performance, with the waves and the running around on stage.
    I guess YMMV, and obviously does.

    Re: the ET video – Cookie, step slowly away from the cougar.
    Geesh, I guess now that the season’s over, Paula’s not even trying to hide it anymore.

  24. OK, onward…

    Brooke gave a very nice set; I agree with Caffiend that her vocal skills were surprising. A very mellow, indie feel. I could never bring myself to be interested in her on the show, but her songs were absolutely charming. I wouldn’t have guessed her to sing Coldplay, but she did a great job with it. And “1-2-3-4” really was a highlight. Way to go Brooke; I think if she sticks with this niche that she’s found for herself she’ll do very well.

    After the group number (which wasn’t half bad I thought, the four girls actually harmonized very well together) and intermission, complete with more guitar hero antics and two twelve year old boys facing off in an air guitar competition (seriously), Jason took the stage. I’ve always admired him for knowing his style and not being ashamed of it, even if it wasn’t my cup of tea. I do have to say though, I was very impressed with his rendition of “Crazy.” It was genuine and beautiful, and like all of his music, unpretentious. Maybe that’s what I like about him most. “Over the Rainbow” and “Daydreaming Boy” were both well done, and the crowd certainly thought so as well. He always seems a little bit startled when people scream like that for him, it’s kinda cute.:)

    Ahh, Syesha. She seems to be making an effort to be more personable; she made sure to say “I love you too!” to fans as she had mentioned in her blog. Awkward moment: “Did they tell you guys not to stand up? Oh.” By this point it felt like the crowd was just waiting for her to finish, which was sad in a way, because she actually sang her heart out on a couple of her songs. “Umbrella” wasn’t all that impressive to me; Rhianna’s range is lower than Syesha’s and it just didn’t work very well.” I thought she did a really good job with Alicia Keyes, though; it took me by surprise. Way to sing it! Her last song wasn’t as impressive, but again, she gave it her all. I still somehow found myself commenting that I would pay decent money to see her in a Broadway show but not a concert, however. Maybe I’m just stuck with that as her image, I dunno.

    DavidArchuleta! Cue shrieks!!11!!!1 We practically had to cover our ears, and the aforementioned 12 year old girl next to us was crying and clinging on to her mother for dear life. It was all cute, I suppose, if deafening. Archie did have his same awkward style between songs, and I had a hard time hearing him when he was speaking. Whatever else you can say about him though, this kid can SING, and boy did he ever. Angels was beautiful, and I really enjoyed Stand By Me. Already a pro, and only 17–I really hope he finds a sound that he can have success with, even if it isn’t right away. He’s too talented; it would be awful to see him fade away like some previous runner-ups have.

    And now, the moment we had been waiting for all night…DAVID COOK! Cue my now fangirly self screaming along with the rest of the stadium. And I’ll be damned if he didn’t keep us going through his entire performance. “Hello” was incredibly beautiful, I loved the full version even more than what he did on the show. TOML was as enjoyable as ever; he thanked everybody for making the song “as successful as it’s been.” (You’re welcome, David. So welcome.:)) I wasn’t overly fond of IDWMAT on the show, but I did enjoy this performance. And WOW, was he all over the stage with My Hero! Way to get a crowd riled up for an encore.:) And Billie Jean…oh, Billie Jean. The song that stole my heart in the first place. And it was so much more amazing live. I cannot WAIT for his first solo tour, I’ll be camping out in line for tickets.

    All in all, it was an enjoyable show. I don’t have any of the previous years with more group numbers to compare it to, but I thought this worked well enough. David Cook absolutely stole the show IMO, but most everyone else gave fantastic performances as well. Woohoo!:)

  25. I love all these recaps.

    Yeah, I was bummed to hear that the format was so straightforward. Last year we got interesting pairings (Melinda-Sanjaya duet) and costumes (the all-white finale) and choreography (“Ain’t No Other Man”) and interaction among the idols (the “boy band”)…the format seemed to be geared toward showing different sides of the singers. From what I’ve heard so far, this year’s tour seems to be geared toward cementing the image the singers had on the show.

    I’m wondering why TPTB decided to go that route this year. Why emphasize the individuals over the group stuff? Because last year they were really interested only in Jordin as an individual future star and this year there are several future stars they want to groom?

  26. dunno how he does ità ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ ¦Ãƒ ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ ¦ keeps getting better and better each showà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ ¦ I have to say this is my favorite version of Angels so far, I and ive heard them all. THat last bit was like WHOA!

    Frogcooke, I have watched them all too, and he has such mastery of his voice, it’s incredible. The combination of emotion and skill is amazing.

  27. “I have to admit that of all the videos (even including my fave Jasonà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s) Ià ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢ve seen from the tour, Archieà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s Apologize and Stand By Me are my biggest favorites. *hides from the Castro fans, heh*”

    Oh, of all the peoples Purple – no one would ever shoot YOU! My Dallas and I fought for the phone voting for Castro/Cook (me)and David A (Dallas), so, I have been forced to sit thru all of David A’s videos over and over and much to my surprise – I really did love a couple of his songs. I really liked Apologize, not so much the Beautiful Girls one though, even Dallas moved quickly thru that one, so we can disagree on that one, ok?

  28. Well color me surprised that Randy and Paula were there. I remember Carly mentioning during her set something about judges being in the audience, but I thought she was joking. That must have been what the big brouhaha was about five minutes before the show started, what with everyone stampeding forward with their camera phones to the front section. I figured some celebrity had made their entrance.

    IAWBIARà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ ¦gets more sultry, sexy , and soulful everytime he
    he sings it

    Forgot to mention, but yes I agree, Michael’s performance of this was very, very, very good indeed. Wasn’t a big fan of it on the show, but hearing him ham it up live was…well let’s just say I was taking off my jacket at that point and asking for water.
    Also, I remember Michael kept messing around with every Idol he was by during the final number and they kept trying to swat him away. It was hilarious. I’m sure this hijinks goes on all the time.

    Hee, and the pointy poses were great. KKK’s was a “stick ’em up” on Jason, who held up his hands in surrender. Funny.

  29. Kay.
    I was there and I don’t have a huge amount of time to do recaps but I must whole-heartedly disagree with Cook being a dull performer.

    In fact, he was the ONLY performer of the night for which the floor crowd was standing the entire time.

    He almost couldn’t get through Hello because the audience was screaming so loudly.

    And when he performed “My Hero” he was all over that stage… and standing up on the railings to throngs of screaming, reaching fans.

    And then Billie Jean OH MY GOD!

    That is all.

  30. At first I modded, but I changed my mind and decided to delete an entire exchange. I work to keep this place civil. I’m not going to allow rude behavior or arguments.

    Read if you haven’t already. Or even if you have:

    Another general reminder: You may love a particular Idol, but not everyone does. Please respect your fellow poster’s opinions.

  31. The KLC stick him up move to Jason at the end of the last number must be their big signature move because JC/KLC have done it at just about every show so far. These guys are dorks and I mean that in the best way possible.

  32. I have a question about the final number they do, when Cook is standing at the top of the stairs and all the other Idols go up the stairs and pass by him to exit…I haven’t seen any closeups of this so I’m just wondering if my eyes are deceiving me or does KLC do a little shimmy/dance in front of Cook as she passes?

    I notice as the Idols all walk across the stage during that final number, they are all cheesy grins. I’m waiting for Cook and Johns to do a chest bump (if they do, someone PLEASE get that on video!) or for someone to do a hip bump, lol.

  33. They don’t do the chest bump, but they do the Robot! Which is so dorky and cool.

  34. I was going to say MJ does the robot and they sometimes do it together.

    I also noticed the shimmy, but I think MJ did it to Cook first and then KLC.

    A lot of the other little things seem to depend on the night. I’m sure by the end of the tour they’ll change it up for us.

    Backstage With Idols. This might explain why some of them barely made it outside last night (Jason). There were tons of fans inside vying for their attention.

  35. I also noticed the shimmy, but I think MJ did it to Cook first and then KLC.

    LOL, now I’d totally prefer to see the MJ Shimmy to the KLC one…I’m all about their bromance ;)

  36. That video of Archie doing “angels” from LA is amazing! I was not a huge fan of the song when he sang it on Idol, but I am definitely impressed with this rendition. That last phrase he does is incredible! That boy can SING!!!

  37. Amazing pictures hessi!!! I’d even say the best I’ve seen of the tour so far. :D
