American Idol ... It's Almost Showtime!!!

                                          (come on, Kris. Fight the powers that be!)

Can you feel it? It's that Idol excitement looming in the air. Because in almost one and a half hours, we will be free of the "Disco" and "Mo-Town" theme nights and all the song choice restrictions they bring, and we will find out just what our beloved Idols (I'm talking to you Adam and Kris!) choose to sing (and perform if you're initials are A.L.) when the song choice is open to any song their little hearts desire. Now since the song book is soooooo wide open here, I'm just going to leave it in their trusty hands.

And, of course, those of the judges since there is also that Judges' Choice tonight. But I have always been a fan of this, especially when it comes to Simon's picks. (Does anyone recall his choice for Katherine McPhee? Somewhere Over the Rainbow? Nuff' said.) (WILL Adam sing ONE? WILL Adam sing Wicked Game?) My excitement is mounting ...

Now I still have my pipe dream of an Adam/Kris finale, but I'm slowly accepting the fact that this most likely won't happen. The Gokey-noids are so far gone, they are all being robotically led in droves, hypnotized by cat-mating screams, only able to repeat "must vote Gokey" "must vote Gokey."

Not only are these fans hypnotized, but, tonight, we will see just how mind-warped our panel of "esteemed" judges have become. Will they be handing out those "A's" for effort regardless of heinous vocals? Will they continue to throw Kris under the bus regardless of stellar vocals? Ugh! I don't even want to think about the possibility. I'm unnerved and excited at the same time!

I just bought me a bottle of fine $3.00 wine, and only time will tell how much of it I need to drink! Bring it on Gokey! Bring it on Kara! I'll be watching and sniffing out the slightest hints of sabotage, taking my ever faithful notes, all the while cursing, smiling, drinking, cursing, laughing, loving Adam, drinking, cursing, blaspheming DioGuardi, drinking ... God I love this show!

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…
