Idol: Almost To The Final Four! My Song for Matt G.

Tonight's elimination will bring us to The Final Four! Holy Cow! Where has the time gone? It all just seems to be slipping away. My emotions are on high right now because while I say it's going to be Matt, an awful thought keeps creeping into my head as I fear for my little Iraheta's life. But, I'm going to shove that nasty thought aside, and stick with my prediction: Matt G. goes home. And I don't know what it is, but for some reason, Matt G. brings out my inner-songstress, so here goes nothin': (set to the beautiful tune of Billy Joel's "And So It Goes," click on the orange link if you need to familiarize yourself with the song).

In every season
There is an Idol.
Regularly in the Bottom Three.
He riffs, He plays.
On his piano.
I'm talking about the boy, Matt G.

I spoke to him in cautious tones.
He answered me with another hat.
And still, I was happy. When he was Saved.
Now, what the hell is up with that.

And everytime. I watched "So Small."
My heart was filled with wonderment.
On how Matt G. could be so vulnerable.
His fedora was his own torment.

He scatted. He riffed.
To be like Justin.
But we don't need another of those.
Why not just be
Your true, great self?
You don't want to listen, I suppose.

And so it goes.
And so it goes.
And I'm the only one who knows.


  1. Very, very good song.... I'm impressed -- nicely done. ;) ~J~

  2. Why thank ya very much, J! I guess we can call it Matt's swan song.

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 "…

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 …

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…
