Jorge Goes Away And Princess Jasmine Flies!


DVR Confusion: My DVR "Information" said "1 of 13 Voted Off" - so you could imagine my surprise when ol' Jasmine got the boot a half hour into the show. I was also scared I have been blogging to you the wrong information yesterday by saying that two were going to get cut. Alas, I was right, though. Another ousted contestant was indeed to come and I predicted the Jasmine thing yesterday. Jorge was the other one (not much a surprise, and, okay, I will admit to my island philosophy being wrong).

Second Chances? The new change was announced to include a "save card" by the judges for contestants deserving a second chance. Did we really think the judges would pull it out and use this "Daughtry Card" on the likes of a mini-me Marc Anthony? Simon, with a quick simple "no", summed that one right up. Nah, this card will be used late in the game for the pimped out contestants - Gokey or Rounds.

High Light: Good ol' Kelly Clarkson returns to the Idol stage coming out of . . . where has this girl been? It looks like there hasn't been a shortage of food wherever it was judging by that behind (okay - I know I'm getting some boos right now), but, hey, she is still my high light of the night. I have missed Kelly. Not the dark Kelly she tried to become; no, I missed the one she proved to be again last night. Her song "My Life Would Suck Without You" reminded me of her lighter "Since You Been Gone" days - the type of stuff that made us fall in love with her. Good to see ya back Kelly.

Low Light: And now for my low light of the night - I am sad to say, I think my suspicions of my hottie Adam Lambert being gay were confirmed last night. Did anyone notice him during the tour of their new Idol house? I had to rewind it a few times to make sure it was him. He had on sunglasses, a beanie hat and the voice was that of a stranger's to me. I thought, why is Nate Marshall in that house? Didn't he get cut? I re-wound and re-wound, pausing, freezing, Who is this guy? And then I saw the ears . . the black holed-out earrings didn't lie. Ah crap. Alas, it was my boy, Adam Lambert. Sigh.

  1. Hi ya Elizabeth... I found your blog through a link (left by you..;}) on someone else's blog. Anyway, I'm ~J~ and find I like your blog better then that other one!

    I'm not a fan of Adam, seems though I am one of the few that haven't sampled THAT Kool-aid. Still deciding on the others.

    Like you, I'm a large fan of "reality" tv. If it okay by you, think I'll hang out here... Have a really good day and take care over there. ~J~

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…
