American Idol 2011: Nine Lives of Stefano Langone
Please don’t vote for Stefano Langone this week on American Idol as he needs to be sent home.
Is it finally Stefano Langone’s time to go on American Idol? So far this season Stefano has had more lives than a cat. He has constantly been in the bottom three, but seems to wriggle off the hooks week in and week out. The height of his luck came two weeks ago when it got down to him and Pia Toscano. As the drama built, Stefano had a look on his face of resignation. When they announced that Pia was the one voted out he seemed floored and genuinely shocked and he wasn’t the only one who felt that way.
That was two weeks ago. Since then Paul McDonald has been voted out and the American Idol competition is getting more and more intense. Stefano Langone seems to be trying his best, but to me and a lot of other people his best just isn’t that great. When you compare him to the other contestants he seems to be the weakest singer. His style is over the top and he tends to scream the lyrics. While the rest of the contestants seem to just want to do well and put on a good show, Stefano seems to really want to win and it comes off a little bit disingenuous. Sure, the other Idol contestants want to win (well, I assume most of them want to win) but they don’t come off as if they are campaigning for votes and Stefano does.
This week the American Idol theme is songs from the 21st century so there are plenty for him to choose from. I have no idea what song he will sing, but I have a feeling he will choose some kind of a big ballad. I think that would be a mistake. Stefano Langone always seems so serious up there that he might do himself some good to relax and sing a smaller song that he can have some fun with. Somehow I don’t think he will do that and we will be treated to another Stefano Langone special with closed eyes, over-dramatic moves and desperate attempts at connection with the audience.
I can say this much. Whatever song Stefano Langone chooses, he better do his best because at this point his luck just might be running out and he may not survive another trip to the bottom three. Tune in tonight at 8PM on FOX to see how Stefano and the rest of the American Idol Top 7 do.
