Michael Lynche is SAVED!!!! ... But Do We Care?

Hey everyone, great news!  Big Mike got the sole judges' save on American Idol last night and will still be here next week to sing us another ballad!!!  I'm brimming with excitement .... (and sarcasm for you savvy ones).  Yes, I gotta say, I could give two S**ts less that Proud Poppa Mike still remains in this "I'm still trying to decide whether I like it or not" season 9 competition.  Actually, scratch that.  I DO care, because by using this save, the judges have mistakenly wasted this worthy little gem that was once in their back pocket to override the ridiculosities (yes, I'm still trying to make this a word) of tweens who text faster than I can say Ha-iiii. 

Hey Kara and Co.:  Please note Siobhan Magnus, Lee Dewyze, Crystal Bowersox and Casey James are still here and if Tim Urban NOT being in last night's bottom three is any indication that it is very possible that one of the aforementioned Winner-Worthy contestants could experience a premature evacuation, I don't know what is.

So maybe you all should have thought twice before being swayed by Big Mike's wifey-poo in that there audience crying her glittery eyes out like Big Mike's save is the only hope for her, her baby's, and oh hell, (it seems) America's future.  Save it.  I was totally moved when Matt G. was saved last year (and we all know how much I hated seeing his fedora return week after week).  I was not, however, jumping for joy to see the same thing happen to lip smacker, "check me out on I-tunes" chees-a-licious Big Mike.  (And I don't know, but it seems as if his fellow contestants weren't all that jazzed either.  Unlike this moment.) 

Aaaannd, I digress.  I will soldier on.  It shouldn't be hard to do.  I know this guy's not gonna win.  And hey, I've got Adam Lambert Unplugged to look forward to tonight!  And oh yeah, he's the mentor next week!!!  Hells Yeah!!!

    American Idol stinks this season, I could have cared less if Big Mike went home or not. He has no stage presence or class, and he is very arrogant on top of all that. Last night was a wake-up-call for him I hope. He seems to think that he has it in the bag, but I have news for him. Get over himself....the only thing comes across from him is his arrogance. I don't believe he was not voted for because of his singing, but because of his arrogance, we don't want to see that.

    The only reason I'll be watching next week, is to see Adam Lambert, because the talent this year on the show stinks. They sing the saddest song I've ever heard. This was the worst show of talent since Idol started. What the hell happen? They choose good singers in the beginning of the season, but they sent them all home. And kept the worst. I don't think any of them should win, but I know they have to pick a winner. This season they have to pick the best of the worst.

  4. I was thrilled to hear Simon say they were givin' Big Mike the sacred save!!!!

    Do I love Big Mike? No. Do I hate the silly-ass conference going on behind the judges table while the victim sings for his/her life. YES!

    Now it's gone, and if my Crystal should get voted off before the finale, then I will simply stop watching because she's clearly the winner in my book and all the rest are just keeping the show "alive??".

    ADAM NEXT WEEK!!!!!! Yo Baby!

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 "…
