@AndyShore I could probably make it the top 6 after this week. There’s really only 3 girls and 3 guys worthy of being on this show. Paige Miles was terrible on Tuesday. Katie Stevens was too. The guys didn’t have as many lows, but I am not an Aaron Kelly fan at all. I have a feeling that some of the singers I like might be in trouble. I have a very different taste in music than the tween girls that vote for this show.
8:06 I have never been the biggest fan of his, but there are few others performers as comfortable in their skin as Big Mike. Maybe because he has so much of it.
8:11 Next week is the music of the Rolling Stones. I’m hoping some of the singer/songwriters pick from Exile on Main St. Someone’s got enough bluesy soul to pull it off.
8:13 Didi Benami and Siobhan Magnus are safe. One of Paige Miles or Katelyn Epperly is going home. Katelyn did not have her best performance this week, but Paige’s was terrible. Can’t believe Paige survived. She’s been consistently terrible. The camera cut to a shocked looking Sioban. She must agree with me. Lilly Scott was brought to tears during Katelyn’s swan song. The masses are asses.
8:23 Of Tim Urban, Todrick Hall, Lee Dewyze and Casey James, Tim should be going home. Instead, he made the top 12 and is joined by Casey and Lee. Todrick is going home after an impressive Queen cover. Some of the female contestants look downright pissed at the eliminations so far. Can’t say I feel any different. Todrick’s swan song was even better than last night. I bet the judges wish they still had a save. Seacrest and Randy were blown away. Crystal Bowersox is crying. If she cares, you know its a big deal.
8:33 Scott McIntyre and Matt Giraud are doing dueling pianos to cover Billy Joel. This is like a poorly matched Grammys duet. Matt Giraud is clearly better. McIntyre just told Seacrest it was good to see him. That made me laugh.
8:42 Crystal Bowersox, Big Mike, Lacey Brown, Aaron Kelly and Andrew Garcia are safe. Alex Lambert does not deserve to go home after that Ray Lamontagne cover last night. What a shame. Maybe everyone else was uncomfortable with a lesbian making banana jokes. Lots of teary eyes from both sides tonight. Alex got a massive group hug from the guys after his swan song.
8:56 Idol returned from the commercial to a disheveled mess of contestants and judges. The group hug was dispersing and included Ellen. Seacrest looks noticeably shaken and called it “the most intense few moments of the show” during the commercial break.
8:57 Lilly Allen is clearly the better than Katie Stevens, but she joins the other worthy contestants on their way home. This season is shlock. There are at least two contestants that aren’t even close to deserving of being in the top 12.
