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 Results: Adam Lambert PERFORMS!!! Oh yeah, and There Was a Double Elimination.

Okay, guys, here we go with the Idol results.  Am I the only one who is sick of these results show intro package fake-outs?  You know, wherein they try and make us believe like there were Holyfield vocal TKOs last night?  (Cut to a judge exclamatory:  "Yo, those vocals were hot!!"  Then cut to Andrew Garcia holding a mic that looks as if it just turned gold right before our very eyes.)  Um, am I living in some crazy Harry Potter land?  Because I'm pretty sure this does not accurately reflect what went down on performance night at all.  But then again, I guess if they show what really went down, it would not pump me, the viewer, up.  Unlike those high voltage group sings ... those aren't watered down or lip sunk at all.  Oh what's that?!  Ms. Sleepy Weird-Eyed Gal Herself, Brooke White, and some dude I've never heard of are set to sing tonight?!!!  Well somebody better hold me back! 

Okay okay.  Who peed in my Fruity Pepples, right?  I am excited to see Adam …

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: R & B Night ... What a Difference an Usher Makes!

Well three cheers for Usher, is alls I got to say about last night's American Idol, R & B Night. If only all of them would have heeded the advice of the sunglassed one, it may have been a perfect night. But alas, Tim Urban remains unchanged, and so I'll settle for a vastly improved night instead.
Usher on Lee: Believe in Yourself. Although he may think he still belongs in the paint shop, Lee Dewyze really has a shot at winning this whole shin dig. Oh, simply the song title alone "Treat Her Like a Lady" mixed in with that gritty voice = one hot and bothered Elizabeth. You can treat me like a lady, Lee. Any ol' time. (Okay, sorry if just made anyone feel uncomfortable there.) Usher and I just ask one thing of you: Believe in yourself! Simon told you this may be the night your life changes forever, yet I still think you will come out next week with the ever present look of fear in those glistening baby blues. Not to mention, your desire to eat your guitar pick ri…
