The Bachelorette Recap: All Systems Go in Maui ... Sort of ..

Just wanted to comment a little bit on last night's Maui-infused episode of The Bachelorette. (By the way -- remind me, when I hit it big, to buy a hut in Maui so that I can live there, never to be seen a-gain. I mean, that place was UNREAL! I especially loved the aerial shots in which I got to partake thanks to the 150th helicopter ride of the season.)

Anyhoo, our little Jilli has narrowed the mating pool down to two, and we are left with "is he too perfect for me?" Kiptyn, and "I wear short shorts" Ed. (Really, Ed?)

I say .... "Three cheers for Ed!" Who's with me? While I admit I did not see this guy as a front runner early on, I say now that if Jilli doesn't pick Ed, she will end up more crushed than all of the times she already has been on this season combined! It's like Ed left and came back a whole new, lovey-dovey, dopey, awe-struck, altered version of his self.

And despite one certain major malfunction we witnessed FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER in Bachelorette history, Ed is clearly the most compatible for our little squealer even if his ol' humdinger is not. [And as a side note for Ed, let me just say that I think this little hurdle only proved to be endearing. I think such nervousness is a testament to just how much he likes Jill. Now maybe if he had chosen to spread his arms out a-la Reid style, claiming "I like you this much," that would have been slightly less embarrassing; but it would not have been as real.]

And how about those camera techniques? I don't believe I have ever laughed so hard in all my Bachelorette viewings as I did last night, seeing the camera shoot only the outside view of the hotel window, lights shut off; cut to the ocean ... ah, how nice. Then -- same window shot. And BOOM! Lights on. Now, cut to Ed, face-planted on the bed, and you have me laughing uncontrollably, but still coaching Jilli along, yelling at my TV, "He obviously likes you, Jillian! Now don't you be hard on the poor guy." [No pun intended.]

Oh yeah. Reid got cut this episode. Thank God. That silent merry-go-round of a relationship exhausted me. [But if we plant a beach ball on the scene, that might work. Nah. Beach ball + Reid + Jillian = fake awkward fun.]

So what did you think? Are you rooting for Ed as much as me? Hopefully, Jillian already knows he's the one, but if she doesn't, maybe we could have her re-visit Kip's parents, so that she is gently reminded of the terror that is Mommy Kiptyn. Next week is the ever entertaining, "Men Tell All" where I bet ol' Wessy-poo will not have it so eeee-ee-aaa-say. Can't wait.

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…
