American Idol Finalists Revealed! Lambert, Epperly, Hall, Scott Eliminated. Along With My Idol Hopes and Dreams. ... sorta

(Our esteemed Top 12 ... Or is this what my nightmare looks like?  Discuss.)

This just in:  Fuzzy Mullet Boy, ... I really have to think a good 10 seconds or so before I can come up with their names .... Oh yes, Lilly Scott .... Katelyn Epperly (yes, that's the one), and oh let's see .... Todrick Hall went home last night on Idol.

Well, actually, this is kind of old news.  Reading some of the comments from my last post, though, I felt I needed to slap this one up here.  Given how long it took to remember who went home last night, I guess you could say, I'm not quite breaking out the Kleenex (as I once did for our beloved Allison Iraheta). 

Okay, okay, I'll admit.  I was a little saddened to see Lilly Scott go over Katie Stevens.  But then, before the silver-haired one even finished singing "I Fall to Pieces," I was already over it.  (I'm sure my mom begs to differ.  Apparently, she wants this stuff on wax.)  And yes, I felt perhaps a twinge of regret to see Katelyn Epperly's premature evacuation.  But then I remembered how stupid she was to choose the song "I Feel The Earth Move" for her one shot at superstardom, and I quickly didn't care if she was walking that plank.  And fuzzy mullet boy?  Well, let's just say, I am not worrrried worrried worrried that he's gone.  He would have had to get on the super expressway of confidence if we ever would have found him worthy of taking over Kris Allen's throne.  Todrick Hall?  Sure the gloved-one was more entertaining than most of these cats, but am I sweatin' it?  Nope.  I think the only real emotion I would have had last night is if my puppy actually did spill over my vino (which he came dangerously close to doing) and if Andrew Garcia did not get that last silver coveted chair of safety. 

Are you telling me to lighten up?  Do I need to get my American Idol season 9 mojo working?  Well give me something I can work with, dammit.  Until then, I will endure some more of Aaron Kelly's air-humping dance moves, Ellen thinking Tim Urban is the greatest thing since Portia, Kara rubbing up against Simon's sweater like it is the newest way to start fire,  and hmmm, what else, oh yeah - Randy giving unwarranted standing "o's" to make it look like we have some hot ones tonight(!).  But I digress.  Carry on, my Idol-Addicts.  Carry on.


  1. Wow you found a lot to say about a night that inspired not much of anything except surprise (for me at least) that Lilly got the ax. It was obvious that Lilly was a bit pissed at America too, huh?

    Kiddie Katie lives to ruin another night of Idol by choosing the wrong song. Pete Brady can pull that dumbfounded look next week too. Hey wouldn't it be cool to hear him do "It's a Sunshine Day"! Potential Paige will sing something I hate and I'll find myself sitting for an hour just to catch the brightness of my Chrystal.

    See ya next week E!

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…

Idol: I-Tune Down Loads Equals Big Let Down

Well, as speculated, it was the Top I-Tunes Downloads theme on Idol tonight, allowing for something more 'current.' But the whole night, with a few exceptions, proved to be a big let down.
Let Down #1:Allison's outfit and Edward Scissorhands' hairdo. Even Randy couldn't wait to get through the positive comments to ask, "What is up with the outfit?!" We all know Allison's voice is amazing, so I have to focus on the question that still begs to be answered: Just what has the 'Glam Squad' done to her? Please. De-glam my Allison at once and give her back to me a-la 'Alone' days! But they won't do this, and you know why? Because it wouldn't be right if we had an unknown early front runner who didn't have the help of a producer pimp-out be allowed to shine. Oh no. We have to allow Simon tell her that she 'shouted the song'! WTF?!! Chopped locks + Fourth Slot + Insane Critiques + Mustache Doodles = SABOTAGE!
Let Down #2:Matt …

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 "…
