American Idol - April 29

THIS is American Idol.

And PAULA looks like a prom queen at the end of a rough night.

It's Neil Diamond night, y'all, and I've gotta tell ya that I've never been a very big fan. I'm more of a Manilow girl.

Ah, he's releasing a new album next week, which is why he's being featured on tonight's show, I guess. And p.s., he's old, huh?

Up first is Jason Castro, singing Forever in Blue Jeans. I may have mentioned that I really like me some Jason, but tonight I'm not into this performance.

David Cook - I'm Alive
I'm not feelin' it.

I hope I don't have a case of the crankies tonight. It's late, though, so I can't make any promises.

Brooke White - I'm a Believer
Did you know Neil Diamond wrote this song? Didn't the Monkees record it? Yes, I'm old. Anyway, my sweet Brooke is stinking it up. In my opinion. There were some really great spots, though, but mostly...it stunk.

And there are the pinched lips.

David Archuleta - Sweet Caroline
Sort of like Brooke, there were great moments but weird ones, too. In his case, more great than weird, though. He actually looked enthusiastic for the first time in several weeks!

Syesha Mercado - Hello Again
Not a fan of the hair. Her voice sounds very pure and beautiful, but I'm not sure whether the song is spectacular. Tink liked it. Was she off for a minute at the key change? That was a key change, right?

Could I ask more questions tonight?

Okay, so feedback from the judges on everyone at once. I don't know what Randy said. Something like Castro, not so much; Cook, good; Brook, karaoke; Archuleta, the bomb, and Syesha, in the zone.

Now it's Paula's turn. She's giving Jason Castro feedback for two songs when he only sang one. This is crackin' me up, y'all. Ryan's lookin' off-stage like he wants someone to do something and Simon's just grinning into space. Randy tries to correct her and...WOW, is she HIGH!

Here we go with Round Two.

Jason Castro - September Morn
Sounds off in the beginning, but I love his voice on this song. Except when it's pitchy, which unfortunately it is. UGH. Never mind. It's awful. What do I know?

David Cook - All I Really Need is You
Not feelin' it. I guess this is his style, and it's pretty contemporary, but it's not for me. Okay, wait, cause the second half is sorta growin' on me.

But also, his hair is growin' out again, and did I mention in the beginning that I hated it? Yeah, hatin' it again.

Brooke White - I Am I Said
STUPENDOUS. This song is perfect for Brooke. Love it. I adore her voice when she's singing the right song. Seriously, may I gush? Because Brooke+the right song is such magic that it confuses me when she DOESN'T choose the wrong song.

David Archuleta - America
My first thought was that this song would be too big for him. So far, yeah, sounds like a high school choir performance to me, with a couple of great bright notes thrown in.

I think he always looks so zoned out when he's listening to the judges. And, by the way, the judges loved the performance. Of course.

Syesha Mercado - I Thank The Lord For The Night Time
I enjoyed it, but I bet the judges won't.
Randy? In the Zone.
Paula? Theatrical...huh? I love her.
Simon? Actress/Singer. May be in trouble tonight.

Conclusions? I loved Brooke's second performance, thought Syesha did well, and I definitely think Jason Castro needs to go this week. Jason's my Texas boy, y'all, but his time has passed.

What did you think?

Dancing With The Stars Results - April 29

LIVE from Hollywood, This Is Dancing With The Stars!

Here's the results show, y'all. Waddaya think?

Cristian is back, thank goodness.

blah blah blah

You can do lifts next week...

Kristi and Mark are safe for this week.

Love the Dance Center segment with the football guys and Len doing commentary on the contestants. Love. It.

Def Leppard on DWTS? I just don't know what to say.

More Dance Center and talk of flatulence.

And Mario and Karina are safe.

More Def Leppard? Yeah, fast forward.

Nothing against Def Leppard, mind you. It's just sorta creepy to mix my genres. And 80-90s rock mixed with ballroom? Not workin' for me.

Hey, no Junior Dancers tonight?

Tom Bergeron talking about how many times "the trajectory of this show has changed. The most recent time, minutes before the show began." I don't know what his point is.

Back to the elimination.

Or maybe a commercial instead. Bitches.

My sweet baby Cristian has a ruptured tendon and will have to have surgery, but wants to complete the competition first. If the votes allow.

AND THEY DO! Yeah, he's safe!

First couple in the bottom 2 is Marissa and Tony.

Next couple safe is Jason and Edyta. Obviously.

Which means Shannon and Derek are in the bottom 2. Oh no, I don't want either to leave.

But Shannon and Derek are gone. Very emotional. But not unexpected.

What did y'all think? Any surprises tonight?

Dancing With The Stars - April 28

LIVE, This Is Dancing With The Stars!!

I swear, these announcers are over the top, y'all. I especially love how they label every contestant as they introduce them.

NFL Man of the Year Jason Taylor!
Actor Christian Del Fuente!
R & B Star Mario!
Film and Television Star Shannon Elizabeth!
Tony-Winning Broadway Star Marissa Jaret Winokur!
Olympic Champion Figure Skater Kristi Yamaguchi!

Wow, we're down to six tonight and I really like all of them, although some more than others.

Marissa and Tony Dovolani - Tango and Rumba
The Tango's first, and bless her little short stature! I liked it, but then I've been a fan of Marissa's from the beginning. That lean-ish thing they did was great, and she was as graceful as she could be. I think it's just hard to be sultry when you're 4 foot nothing.

Oh, Len said it was Her Best Dance! And Bruno liked it too.

SCORE: 27

Last they have their Rumba, and it's a little slow, isn't it? There were some really difficult moves too, though, and I think the judges liked it. Have I mentioned that I think Tony Dovolani is the sweetest man I've seen on this show?

SCORE: 25
TOTAL: 52

Cristian and Cheryl Burke - Viennese Waltz and Samba
The Viennese Waltz is first. I love the color of her dress. And the song is distracting, cause it was a late-night pick-up number at a little bar I used to hang out at.

Oh, but the dance. Yeah, it was Cristian; of course I loved it!

SCORE: 25. Wah.

Oh, I'm so excited to see Cristian's Samba. But wait...I think I'm a bit disappointed because he's not shaking his bom bom as much as I'd like. Oh My, now he's hurt himself. Wah.

Back from commercial break, and my boy has got ice on his arm, and he's oh, so embarrassed.

SCORE: 21. How sad.
TOTAL: 46

Kristi and Mark Ballas - Viennese Waltz and Cha Cha
Viennese Waltz is first. They look absolutely gorgeous. Yeah, this is a 30 for sure. It's just breathtakingly beautiful.

WOW, Carrie Ann and Len didn't love it.

SCORE: 26. Is this the first week she's not been on top?

And what about their Cha Cha Cha? Go on now, Mark, with your spinning self! I'm tellin' y'all, sometimes with this couple I'm so busy watching him that I forget to look at Kristi.

Holy Smokes, people, I think I enjoyed that more than any dance Kristi's done all season.

And p.s., could Len and Bruno argue any more tonight?

SCORE: 28
TOTAL: 54

Mario and Karina Smirnoff - Fox Trot and Mambo
And the Fox Trot is first. I thought it was great, my Pooh loved it.

SCORE: 24

Dancing the Mambo now. Again with the Ricky Ricardo business. I swear that Mario is part Cuban or Puerto Rican or whatever. He moves so fine he makes those weird white pants look good.

SCORE:27
TOTAL:51

Shannon and Derek Hough - Tango and Mambo

First up is the Tango. LOVE her dress. I think the dance is a little robotic, but so is the music - maybe that's the way they intended it to be. Left me feeling a little weird.

Bruno said it was like a silent movie, and I agree. Carrie Ann said it was their best dance yet, and Len liked it too.

SCORE: 27

And onto their Mambo. Y'all, she's still not moving her dadgum hips. And she's gonna be surprised when the judges tell her so. Or maybe they'll just leave it alone this week. Plus and also, I like to have my music with a Latin flair when we're supposed to be doing a Mambo.

Hmm...Len and Bruno thought she really moved her tushy. I didn't see it.

SCORE: 24
TOTAL: 51

Jason and Edyta Sleazinska - Quick Step and Pasa Doble
Quick Step is up first tonight, and I can't wait to see it! i still remember how great Emmitt Smith did it a couple seasons ago.

I enjoyed the dance; I'm amazed at how naturally Jason seems to dance. And I couldn't believe how covered Edyta was. Compared to her other wardrobe choices, I mean.

SCORE: 29!

How about a Pasa Doble now? Crack me up with the NFL theme song and costumes. Well, it was different, I'll give 'em that. I just don't know what else to say.

SCORE: 26
TOTAL: 55

Okay, so the show is finally over. I think my favorite dance was Kristi and Mark's Cha Cha Cha. And honestly, I think that anyone but Jason and Kristi could be in danger.

Did you watch the show tonight? Who do you think will go home tomorrow night?

American Idol Final 6 Results

Just a quick post tonight, folks; storms are a rollin' through and I need to unplug the computer.

Here's all I have to say - What. The. Heck?

Brooke and Jason are safe?

And Carly and Syesha are in the bottom 2?

I am a big fan of Brooke and Jason, but they deserve to be in the Bottom 2 this week.

Alas.

Carly is leaving this week.

Big Daddy's ticked, Scooter's crying. Wah.

Tuesday, April 22, 2008

American Idol Top 6

It's Andrew Lloyd Weber Night, folks. This should be interesting!

Syesha Mercado - One Rock and Roll Too Many (I think it's called)
This time she's standing on the piano? ...and now she's sitting on it ...and now she's off. Okay, look - I think she put too much energy into the gimmick and not enough into knocking the song out of the park. But that's just me.

The Judges loved it. See? I told you it was just me.

Jason Castro - Memories
Before he starts singing, I'm gonna go ahead and say that I am very concerned about his song choice. Yeah, it goes from boring to awful in my opinion. And I'm a Jason fan, but I'm jumpin' this sinking ship. I just hope he can squeak through to next week.

I can't stand Ryan Seacrest.

Brooke White - I don't know what this song is.
Good night, she screwed up and started over. I guess it's a good thing it's a fairly unknown song (at least to me). That way maybe she can get away with some mistakes.

Hey, Brooke's singing with the most power I've seen her throw out there in this competition; maybe that'll save her. Cause y'all know I love me some Brooke!

And p.s., someone give her a Botox injection before each show so she won't keep on doing those weird things with her lips while she listens to the judges and Stoopid Ryan.

Little Archuletta - Some song from Phantom.
I got nothin'. Randy and Paula loved it, and Simon thought it was forgettable.

Carly Smithson - Jesus Christ Superstar.
I think this IS the best performance tonight. She's throwing that big old voice out there, but doesn't seem as overly intense as she has in the past. Until the last note.

David Cook - The Music of the Night
All right, here's the deal. GREAT showcase for his voice. But it's very Opera/Broadway/classical, don't you think? Not very contemporary at all.

AND my stupid DVR cuts off here.

So let's recap. My fave of the night was Carly.

Who do I think will go home? Probably either Jason or Brooke. And I will wait patiently for them to release an album that I will promptly buy.

Are we still supposed to say album? I don't know.

Anyway.

What did you think about tonight's show?

And if you're a Dancing With The Stars fan, be sure and tell me what you thought about tonight's results show here.

Dancing With The Stars - Week Six Results

Last night's show was really fun, y'all, and I won't be happy to see anyone go home this week.

The country group number is just so cute! And I still can't believe how well Marlee does without hearing the music. She's incredible.

Ashlee Simpson is performing tonight, and I could swear she didn't learn anything from her past lip synch mishaps. It's a cute song, though. She's just not singing it live, is all.

Hi, could Samantha Hostess' arms be any scrawnier?

First results - Shannon is safe and Marlee is not.

Riverdance - I think the dancing is incredible and takes a great deal of talent, but after awhile I'm yawning. Sorry.

I think these junior dancers are awesomely talented, and I'm glad that the judges only give them good feedback. Wow, the first little couple are great, especially the young man. Go Team Red!

Team Black/Aqua are dancing the Samba tonight. Little Man's footwork is incredible, an the shimmies are off the charts! Did he mean to fall in the end, though?

Two more couples who are safe - Marissa and Tony; Cristian and Cheryl. Yay, two of my favorites! At this point I predict that either Mario or Jason will be in the bottom 2.

Back from commercial break, and it's Mario in the bottom 2. I was afraid of that; I don't know if he really connects with the audience.

But it's Marlee going home this week. Wah.

See y'all next week for another thrilling episode of...Which Professional Female Can Wear Less Clothes? Stay tuned.

Dancing With The Stars - Week 6

It's Week 6 of Dancing With The Stars, y'all, and I have to warn you - I'm cranky. I just typed a great intro and lost it and I absolutely can't remember what I said.

I'll try to bring some sweetness and light to my review, but I can't promise anything.

Jason Taylor and Edyta Sleazinska - I love to watch this big hunk move! (I typed big hung first. tee hee.) Anyway, all I have to say is I loved it.

SCORE: 24

Shannon Elizabeth and Derek Hough - Do you think they might be hooking up?

They're doing the Rumba tonight, and I love that she's not dressed like a sleaze bag. WOW, look at those gams, y'all! I think she still needs to move her hips a bit more, though. Oh, and Bruno agrees with me.

Po' little Shannon, she gets really upset at the criticism. I think she must be a bit of a perfectionist.

SCORE: 24

Marlee Matlin and Fabian Sanchez - WOW, has Marlee got a flat tummy! And she's friends with Henry Winkler! And she loves blue eyeshadow!

I think she messed up quite a bit in the beginning, but do you think it got better in the second half?

SCORE: 21
Wah.

Cristian de la Fuente and Cheryl Burke - Love me some Cristian. Love the face, love the sense of humor, love the accent! And look at his sweet little feet! And his pink shirt! And all my exclamation points!

Not crazy about the Bryl Cream hair, though. Just sayin'.

Smooth, baby, smooth! No, he did not just do high kicks. Homey Gomey!

Y'all, Len just said, "If you're in the bottom two tomorrow, I'll show my bum in the supermarket." I'm still giggling, after rewinding it 5 times.

SCORE: 27
We were hoping for a 30, but we'll take it.

Marissa Jaret Winokur and Tony Dovolani are doing the Viennese Waltz. My fingers are crossed for her.

I hate the music. Hate. It. Liked it when Tom Jones sang it, don't like this heavy, almost Spanish arrangement.

The dance was pretty, and I think Marissa looked beautiful.

SCORE: 26!

Kristy Yamaguchi and Mark Ballas - Did you know she was born with club feet? WOW!

I gotta admit, I enjoyed Mark's dancing so much on this one that I kept forgetting to watch Kristy. Obviously she was good; what else do we expect?

SCORE: 30!

Mario and Karina Smirnoff - Yeah, it was steamy. And I'm gonna go there - what the heck was she wearing?

SCORE: 28

Next we have a group number - this should be interesting! I guess I'd already stopped watching last season when (and if) they did a group number.

Y'all, I enjoyed that SO Much! Every single one of them did an excellent job!

And now that the show is over, it's time for our predictions. My favorite this week was Cristian, and I guess that Marlee and Shannon are in danger of going home. Wah.

What did you think?

Monday, April 14, 2008

Dancing With The Stars - Latin Night

It's the halfway point of the competition, y'all, and tonight they're doing the Samba and the Rumba. I'm not certain that I can tell the difference; we'll see.

Mario and Karina - Samba
Wow, could her spray-on be any darker tonight? And can someone seriously tell me why the costumes have to be so revealing? I know I'm showing my prudishness, but I don't understand the reason for it. Unless it's to show what a rockin' 6-pack she has.

And the dancing? I really enjoyed it. Mario reminds me of Ricky Ricardo tonight, for some reason. Is the Samba a Cuban dance?

Score: 27!

Priscilla and Louis - Rumba
It cracks me up when they introduce her as "Actress and Businesswoman." It sounds kinda like, "Grammy Award Winner and Grocery Shopper!"

Priscilla's face looks prettier this week, although I'd like to see lighter eyes.

I thought the dance was VERY pretty, but it seemed so short! I wonder if the judges will think it was too simple.

SCORE: 21

Marissa and Tony - Samba (Oh, Tony says it's Brazilian.)
Marissa doesn't look nearly as chunky in her workout clothes as she does in her performance costumes. And have I mentioned that I L.O.V.E. Tony?

Girlfriend sure enough did shake her booty, didn't she? I loved it!

SCORE: 24

Christian and Cheryl - Rumba
Still hot. I love the color of his shirt and her dress, although I'd like to see more dress. Have I mentioned I may be prudish?

I could watch Christian walk up a flight of stairs and enjoy it, but it didn't seem like this dance was very complicated, AT ALL.

SCORE: 23

Marlee & Fabian - SambaI just can not get over her rhythm, when she can't hear - and has never heard - the music! Incredible.

The judges said that she stumbled a few times but let me tell you - I never saw it!

SCORE: 22

Kristy and Mark - Rumba
Her family is so cute in the taped piece!

Oh goodness, I love their lavender costumes, and the dance was pretty, but I'm not sure I saw sensual. The judges did, though.

SCORE: 29

Shannon & Derek - Samba
Derek went to the hospital with food poisoning? Goodness, this kid is falling apart, isn't he? It looks like the two of them are getting along Very Well in the taped piece, huh?

Not sure I'm crazy about their dance. She seems to be a little stiff. Len said there was no impact and not enough hip action. I Agree. I don't think the score will be very high this week.

SCORE: 23 - WOW, higher than I thought!

Jason and Edyta - Rumba
My, but the girl's hips can move...oh goodness, and the boy's can, too!! Edyta had some great moves, but did Jason? The judges think so - GOOD!

SCORE: 27

The dancing's over for tonight, and now comes the hard part - who's going home this week? Priscilla has the lowest score, but that doesn't always matter, does it?

My favorites were Jason, Marissa and Christian. Cause I'm a sucker for hot men and chunky chicks.

See ya tomorrow for the results!

Thursday, April 10, 2008

Holy Smokes, y'all!

WOW, can you believe Michael Johns went home from American Idol tonight?

I don't think it's any secret that I wasn't a fan, but at times it seemed like everyone else I encountered online was!

And could he have looked more stunned?

I guess you can never be too sure, huh?

Tuesday, April 8, 2008

American Idol - The Final 8

It's Inspirational Week on American Idol. I'll be interested to see what each contestant finds inspirational.

Michael Johns is singing some song that I recognize but don't know the origin of. Big Daddy thinks it was originally recorded by a Big Hair Band like Poison, and I think it was Queen. And it sounded like karaoke to me.

Oh, Randy said it was Aerosmith.

Hey, Sinbad's in the audience.

And Paula's breastesses are trying to escape that torture device of a dress.

Syesha is singing I Believe, which was originally recorded by Fantasia. It was a good performance, y'all, but I don't know if she brings anything unique to the party. Until she hit that glass-shattering high note; now that was unique.

Jason Castro is singing Somewhere Over The Rainbow, and he says it's a version done by a Hawaiian guy on a ukulele. And oh my goodness, Jason is actually playing a ukulele.

Okay, I like Jason, I really do. I even like the song. But I'm not in agreement with his choice tonight. It sounds like a movie soundtrack; specifically Pixar or Disney.

Wow, see how crazy I am? The judges loved it and I'm glad! Go Jason!

Up next is Kristy Lee Cook, and we're betting she's gonna sing something by Martina McBride. Oh my goodness, SHE IS! Let's see how she does.

I hate the way they have to chop these songs up to meet the time requirements. I think she started out rough, but kind of brought it home on the choruses. Do they still call them choruses, or are they bridges or something else totally?

Anyway, that top she wore was HOT.

Randy liked it aside from some pitch problems, and Paula thought it was her best performance. Simon thought she was very, very good indeed and that she looks like a star tonight. Do y'all think Kristy's on the way back?

David Cook is not impressing me tonight. At all. I don't know what he's singing and I don't really care. Something about We Are All Innocent. Randy and Simon agreed with me, and Paula loves him no matter what he does.

Carly Smithson is singing a Queen song tonight. And she apparently didn't listen to Simon's advice last week regarding clothing choices.

Pity.

She sure is strutting around that stage like a bad ass, though. Go on now, Carly. I think parts of the song were really good, but overall it just should have been better. There were too many background singers in places, and I couldn't distinguish her voice.

Hey, Simon likes her clothes! But he thinks it was an angry performance, that she over-sang the song and might be in trouble for it.

Archuleta's up next and he's singing a song called Angels. It was good. The judges loved it but David didn't seem very happy about that. He looks drugged a bit.

And Brooke's closing the show with some Carole King tonight. I love me some Brooke and I love me some Carole King.

Have I mentioned that I'm oh, so partial to Brooke's voice? Didja know that?

BUT. I'm not crazy about this arrangement. This seems like a song that would be great with her at the piano, and a less formal arrangement.

Also, I'm finding myself dreading the looks she gives the judges and that thing she does with her mouth when they criticize her. We'll see.

Well, that wasn't so bad, was it?

Okay, so who was the best tonight?

I honestly don't know. I don't think there were any standouts tonight, either best or worst. So we'll have to see how it goes tomorrow night.

Could I be more ambivalent?

See ya here!

Dancing With The Stars - Who went home?

Adam Carrolla, that's who! And it was time, don't you think?

I don't have much else to say about tonight's show, because I was itching to get into American Idol.

Later, y'all. I've got me some TV to watch.

Monday, April 7, 2008

Dancing With The Stars - April 7

It's the Pasa Doble and the Viennese Waltz on DWTS tonight, folks. We're joined in our commentary tonight by Miss Tinkerbell.

Kristy Yamaguchi's up first, dancing the Pasa Doble with Mark. I hate the music. Hate. It. The dance doesn't seem all that good to me, either. The spins are pretty, but I wonder if it's more the dress than anything. They seemed to fumble their hands a few times, too. I don't mean to be down on Kristy. I actually loved her performances the first two weeks, but last week and this, I haven't been all that thrilled.

Score: 29. Overblown much?

Next, "actress and businesswoman" Priscilla Presley is dancing the Viennese Waltz this week. It was a pretty dance, and she looks much better with more natural lipstick. And that's all I have to say about that.

Carrie Ann, however, is going on about lifts again. Oh, and Len agrees.

Backstage Announcer Girl says the judges were harsh. What planet is she from that she thinks that's harsh? They were almost apologetic in their criticism!

Score: 22

Adam Carolla is wearing the most ridiculous eyeliner moustache, which I guess means he's doing the Pasa Doble. Oh goodness gracious, he's riding a unicycle!

Tink: THAT's not dancing.

I don't know; didn't do much for me. And he looks ridiculous; he's got an orange spray tan and he looks like Greg Brady.

Score: 19

Marlee and Fabian are performing the Viennese Waltz this week. They're so cute with each other in the taped piece. And the dance is beautiful. I actually think Fabian stumbled a bit, though. Oh, p.s., I don't like that big old clump of crap pinned up in her hair.

But I really did think the dance was beautiful.

Score: 24

It's a Pasa Doble for Mario and Karina, and I liked it. That's about it.

Tink: I can't listen to the judges argue any more.

Preach it, Tink!

Score: 24

Jason Taylor and Edyta Sleazinska are dancing the Viennese Waltz next. I think he fumbled his feet a few times, but I do love to watch this big old man dance!

Score: 29! Holy smokes, they tied Kristy Yamaguchi!

Christian and Cheryl are dancing the Pasa Doble, and this Latin dude had better get it right! Hello hunkalicious, thank you very much for the no shirt thing. Not feelin' the pleather dominatrix outfit Cheryl's wearing, though.

Enjoyed The Dance!

Tink: It's kind of like the girl's in charge of the boy every time that they dance!

You know what I noticed? When the dance was over, Cheryl walked off, over to the judges, without waiting for him. What's up with that, Cheryl?

Score: 26

Derek Hough was injured in a rehearsal last week, so I don't think they rehearsed together very much this week. He and Shannon Elizabeth are dancing the Viennese Waltz. It was very pretty.

That seems to be a common theme for me tonight - It was pretty.

Well, it was.

Score: 28

Marissa Jaret Winokur and Tony are doing the Pasa Doble this week. I want so badly for her to do well, but Oh My Goodness, couldn't someone do a better job of dressing her?

I thought she did great tonight, but do you think maybe she keeps getting low scores from the judges because it's hard to look graceful when your legs are only 2 feet long?

Score: 24

I was bored tonight, y'all. I don't know who was the best, but my favorites are Tony, Christian and Marrissa. I'm rooting for Marrissa cause I think she's probably the underdog right now, with her little old legs.

Obviously, Adam Carrolla needs to go home this week. Besides being the worst dancer, he's also obnoxious.

Enough of my mediocre commentary; what did you think?

Wednesday, April 2, 2008

American Idol - Who goes this week?

It's results time, people, so let's waste a lot of time getting there, shall we?

First of all, I like these Clark (?) Brothers, A LOT. I didn't watch the Greatest Band show that they won, but I will definitely be watching to see when they release an album.

Ramiele is the first one in the bottom three, followed by Kristy Lee. I think Kristy Lee has a real bad attitude about being in the bottom three every week. I know it's got to be discouraging, but she's awfully pessimistic about it.

Paula says that she thinks they both did great last week, but then who does she think did worse? Someone's got to go, and although they're good overall, these two girls have been the weakest from week to week.

Now we get a look at some former American Idol contestants. I never was a Bucky Covington fan, but definitely liked Phil Stacey and Bo Bice. I'm looking forward to checking out Phil's album when it's released.

On to this season's contestants: who's the final person in the Bottom Three? It's Brooke. Simon thinks that they're the right ones to be in the BT, but I don't. I don't think Jason or Syesha are better than Brooke. But I'll shut up.

For a minute.

Until Ramiele goes home. And then I'll say this: It was the right decision. I thought she was FABULOUS in the auditions and Hollywood, but I think she's been sort of sick for weeks and never blew it out of the park.

See y'all next week for some more Idol. And don't forget to tell me what you thought about this week's elimination 'kay?

Oh, and please ignore any misspelled names. I'm just too lazy to look anything up tonight. Thanks.

Tuesday, April 1, 2008

American Idol - April Fool's Day!

It's Dolly Parton night on American Idol, y'all. I just love Dolly Parton - ain't she cute?

And speaking of cute, we'll be joined by Miss Tinkerbell in tonight's review.

P.S. Do you think anyone in America was fooled by Ryan's little joke? Not in this house, punk.

Brooke White is singing Jolene, and I think it's a perfect song for her. I think some people don't like Brooke because she's not flashy and doesn't always go for the BIG MOMENT, but I think she's classically wonderful, like Carole King or Carly Simon. She has a hard time taking criticism, but she's not a bad sport about it like some people are.

David Cook's next with Little Sparrow. In case you're keeping score, I like his hair a bit more this week. His voice is growing on me, too. I'm still not over the judges' criticism of Brooke, so I honestly didn't pay much attention.

Ramiele Malubay is performing some song I don't know, and it's not very impressive. In fact, some parts of it are downright painful. I'm confused about the judges' middle-of-the-road comments, because I thought the first half was AWFUL.

Jason Castro - Travelin' Through. He's another one that's not DAZZLINGLY SPECTACULAR, but solidly good. I enjoyed his performance.

Tink: Hmm. Not that much.

Carly Smithson - Here You Come Again. Brilliant. Love it. And if the judges don't, they can shove it.

Simon is EXTREMELY unpleasant tonight. I'm not ordinarily a basher, but tonight - UGH.

David Archuleta is singing Smoky Mountain Memories. I thought it was average. Of course, the judges love him.

Tink: The way he was making that face with his eyes, I didn't like.

Kristy Lee Cook's doing The Coat Of Many Colors, and I thought she did a fair job. Sounded like her pitch was off a few times, though.

Syesha Mercado's performing my favorite Dolly song tonight - I Will Always Love You. Not a fan of the hair, Syesha. But I enjoyed her performance of this song. I like Whitney's version, but I'm a purist and have always LOVED Dolly's original. Syesha did a little bit of both, and I think I agree with Simon on this one, that the second half, the "Whitney" half, wasn't that good.

Tink: The way she ended it wasn't the way I wanted it, but most of it was good.

Michael Johns - This guy is too whiny/growly for me tonight, with the pained/ISmellSomethingBad expression on his face. Overdone.

And the DVR cuts us off here.

So what did you think tonight? My favorites were Carly and Brooke, and Ramiele had better be going home this week.

Check back tomorrow!
