From MJ's...


Quote :
Matt: Matt was my early favorite after Georgia and White Chocolate (plus I come from MI originally), but he sort of lost me after Viva la Vida. Tonight Matt was fantastic–easily the best of the first half and in the top three of the night. Hard to Handle was great; Matt reminded me of Billy Joel in the way he attacked the piano. Georgia was as good as I expected, and then surprisingly, I really liked You Found Me. I had heard it was a set-killer, but I thought Matt pulled it off. Maybe he has just gotten better at doing a set-closing power ballad? Or maybe I just like the song and never really hated the show performance of it? Either way, the crowd agreed with me, as they were really into it, waving arms and glowsticks. Anyway, Matt was awesome and a great way to (almost) end the first half. Oh, one more thing: He put on his fedora halfway through, calling it “something for his hard-core fans,” which I thought was pretty funny.

Matt -- loved his first song, Hard to Handle. Georgia slowed things down a bit too much, I thought - I wish it had been at either the beginning or end of the set. You Found Me was awesome. I know everybody says this, but I liked him much more than I had thought I would, far better live than on the show. He just didn't move me much on the show, I didn't dislike him, but he didn't strike a chord. Live, he was really really good, funny and engaging in a way the other idols, even Adam and Kris, weren't. Not that they aren't capable of it, we know from the show that they are, but Matt was obviously choosing to be interactive, and the others chose to be much less so. I would totally buy a Matt Giraud album. Somebody should sign him.

Well said about our Matt interacting with the crowd, and maybe if the other Idols wanted to interact with the audience I would think they would!

They are not capable of it, not at least in that genuine way Matt does. Smile

Quote :
Matt was very energetic, fun, sounded great (except for the Fray song - didn’t he learn a lesson on the show?) and he received a warm and loud reception from the crowd. My husband loved Matt and gave him a standing O. The group number before intermission was enjoyable, with the 4 guys lined up on stage taking turns singing individually instead of trying to harmonize alot , which tends not to work in those AI group songs. However, I felt that Lil & Megan were a little weak here.

Sounds like the unbiased hubby knows where its at.

Quote :
MacIntyre later joined Matt Giraud in a sprightly duet of Billy Joel’s “Tell Her About It” on two pianos placed back to back. In an interview with The Dartmouth, Giraud, who had been reserved on the show, revealed himself to be a wisecracker.

“My biggest goal and my biggest dream is to make a good album and collaborate with . . . great songwriters,” Giraud said.

He joked that he might record a Britney Spears cover before breaking out into an impromptu “I’m Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman.”

Giraud brought his infectious spontaneity to the stage, effortlessly mixing jazzy piano solos with masterful vibrato runs during Otis Redding’s “Hard to Handle.”
