The Duel 2: Birthdays, Brawls and Banishments

The Duel 2 aired last night on MTV, and alls I gots to say is, could somebody please invite me to one of the birthday soirees they always seem to have on these challenges?! I mean, do they typically pack orange wigs, skull gloves, Pocahontas gear and skin tight body suits (um, hello? Landon anyone?) in their suitcases just in case? If so, I want in!

This season of the Duel has already promised us all the juicy goodness we have come to expect from these challenges. Within the first 8 minutes, crazy Brooke is making out in the hot tub with not one but two guys, and, um, did I mention these guys were gay? Incredible Hulk CT proves yet again to be a complete mad man that even a team of 4 huge guys (plus the producers) can't stop! Hell, even silly things like walls couldn't stop this guy, as he punched his way through, thirsting after shrimpy Adam like a wolverine who hasn't seen his dinner in two days. "I will smash his head and EAT it." I kid you not. Those were his words. And for some strange reason, I think CT means these words quite literally. Mmmm. May I suggest a nice glass of Chianti to go with that head CT?

These people are a bunch of nut jobs and I love it! CT and Adam are already gone, but we still have overall-wearin' Isaac who can be chock-full of surprises. I wonder if he'll see black birds here in New Zealand like he did in Sydney ... And just what is up with that opening sequence?! Holy canoli that thing is bizarre. And are you hoping as much as I am to see Paula go down in flames just like she did on The Island? She still is talking like a total dude after all. Feel free to chime in below!

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 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…

It's a Crystal / Lee Finale ... And I'm Alright.

(Bye little, Casey.  Hey, we'll always have "Jealous Guy")
I'm alright
Nobody worry 'bout me
The end is now in sight
Will it be Crystal or that damn sexy Lee?

Yes, folks.  Don't worry about me.  I am still alive.  I just haven't been posting as regularly because I've been waiting to be moved again.  And if those hometown visits last night didn't get you a little misty eyed, well then may I suggest you check your pulse. 

In what was probably the most predicted elimination, we said goodbye to that Cool Texan, Casey James, leaving us with the two most deserving contestants of season 9:  Crystal "Mamasox" Bowersox and Lee "You Can Mix My Paint Any Ol' Time" DeWyze.  And while I have always thought Mamasox would wind up with the win, I find myself pulling for Lee.  But (unlike last season), I can honestly say that I'm alright with either.  (And I think most people would agree.)

Lee's hometown visit ... well, let's just …
