Even The Grace Above Not Enough To Save Alexis


Tis' a sad day, my friends. Alexis Grace was the 11th ousted contestant from American Idol last night, allowing Michael Sarver a slot in the Top 10 Idol Tour. Sigh.

I admit I was not really feeling her "Jolene" performance, but, come on, what else did this girl have to do in order to advance? Her range is superior to the likes of Scott MacIntyre, but I guess America cares more about a sympathy vote perhaps than vocals. And let me just say that Kelly Clarkson soared to the #1 spot on the charts this week . . . proving that ultimately, what we do want is someone with talent. Weren't the judges just comparing Alexis to Kelly after the petite little white girl busted out a soulful rendition of "Never Loved a Man"? Hmmm. Come on America, let's get it right. While I certainly was never Ms. Grace's number one supporter, I certainly think she did not deserve to go home.

And don't make me even talk about Allison being in the bottom three. I am still crying under my covers, afraid to come out.

    Whoa........that was a shocker, huh? Allison in the bottom three?

    That whole "the judges might decide to save Alexis" last night, based on her performance. Come on........she sang that same song the night before and they didn't like it. Torture the girl! It's doubly insulting to me.

  2. Yes, it is pure torture. My DVR messed up and didn't record this . . for shame! But, I read that apparently Allison looked like she was shooting daggers through her eyes at the judges when they made poor Alexis do this. That's our girl. (Wish I could have seen it.)

  4. Yeppers, think America got it wrong. The big fella should have gone home. I am hoping with ALL my might that Adam goes next week! Can't deal with his incessant screeching!! (Not to mention, he's horrible to look at)

  5. Sorry J, can't say I agree with the Adam comment (as you probably know); Adam may be considered a "screecher" to some . . to me though, he is my dreamy idol no matter which way he swings. His complexion under the unforgiving Idol lights may not looks as good as little Kris Allen, but Adam is a true unique star! I vote him, Matt G. Allison and (Megan/Danny) into the top 4!

American Idol Inspirational Song Night: Crystal Bowersox Cries. I Finally Feel Something. (Recap)

Considering I kept busy on my computer all the while Idol played out tonight on my TV screen, only giving the occasional glance up to notice that Lee Dewyze got his hairs cut, Kara got her hairs styled in a flattering manner that I can't quite put my finger on as to why they were so flattering and Simon's buzz cut looked especially unflattering ... I guess you could say it was all one big unnoticeable snooze fest until Crystal "Mamasox" Bowersox took the stage. So really, all I care about commenting on is her for now.

Wicked Mic Stands and Wet Eyes: Now I don't know if Crystal got overly wrapped up in the spirit of today's date, but someone should have told her pot paraphernalia is not allowed on the Idol stage. Oh, I keed. I keed. Crystal's extraordinary mic stand was made from an old lamp with which she always used to perform in her pre-Idol days. Could that sentimentality be what brought on her sudden outburst of tears at the end of her emotional "…

American Idol: Rat Pack Night "Sways" My Opinions

Well our Top 5 performed the Rat Pack Standards last night, and when it was all said and done, I must say . . . I felt a little swayed. I have to use the word "swayed," first of all, because it's my clever pun on a popular song during the Rat Pack era; and secondly, because the night didn't make me into a full-blown convert -- it simply swayed me, like a gentle yet confused little branch blowing in the wind, unsure if it wants to waver on back to the safe side of "Adam & Simon," or dare to venture and possibly snap on over to the unfamiliar side of "Danny & Kara."

Sway Factor #1: Jamie Foxx is a rockin' mentor! Who ever would have thought that Mr. Foxx would mentor Rat Pack night?! Turns out, he did a kick ass job! Getting all up in Danny Gokey's grill, refusing to let "D" (nickname compliments of Mr. Foxx) detour from his emotions. Channeling "Field of Dreams" and telling Matt Giraud, "if you change the ke…

American Idol Top 9 Perform: Casey James, BagPipes and Didgeridoos Make For One Good Night! (Recap)

Well hot dog, hot dog, hot diggity dog, folks, do we finally have a competition on our hands?  Maybe I am just a little excited about my tax refund or am perhaps silly over this ga-or-geous weather we are having, but dare I say, that in last night's Idol, I saw shades of Idol season 8!?!  Yes, from the humorous moments (one word: bagpipe) to some mad awesome vocals (two words: Casey James), I finally recognized a competitive momentum taking place, which left no alternative but to bring me to a rolling boil of excitement!

I will break it down with the highlights of the night:

These Intro Packages Are Workin' For Me!:  Question for you, Mr. Idol Producer:  Why couldn't we have used these endearing little intro packages wherein Idols comment on other Idols, showing us the viewer some real personality, earlier?  I mean, how much did I love learning that Lee Dewyze and Andrew Garcia have been in a bro-mance since Hollywood Week?!  It brought me back to the big bro/lil sis days o…
