Diversifying the "Top" 36

The sing off -

Because there can't possibly be 2 skinny, white, teenage boys, right? Or two tall blondes with big boobs? Two brunette girls with "edgy" voices would be one too many.

So, pair them up - two by two - and don't worry that it's completely obvious that they're paired with their "twin". A "diverse" cast is clearly more important than talent.

But two roughnecks - rather than face riots in the street, we'd better let them both through. (Thank God!)

And the most heinous act of the night - Jamar! Jamar!

A very keen and clever viewer, R (whose real name is withheld to protect him from having to admit he watches - and votes) said it best (and asked me to quote him here): "What a F&*%^n joke."

Rubbing salt in the wound:
Nick/Norman - really?
Tatianna - really? (did anybody else catch her clapping when Jamar left? clapping.)
Cry baby Nathaniel - really?
More than 7 or 8 randoms who we've never seen - really?

Wrong call, judges. Unfortunatley for Jamar, they already had their "black guy" quota filled.

Luckily there are still SOME people I want to pull for:

Danny, of course - who now can not only play the "my wife died young" card but also the "my best friend got kicked off and supports me 100%" card. Awesome!

Stephen Fowler - needs to get back in my good graces after his temper-tantrum at the piano. But I do still like him.

The sleeved single mom, Meaghan - who we didn't get to see this week, but I liked so much in auditions!

BOTH roughnecks, Matt and Michael - because a girl can never watch too many roughnecks sing romantic songs.

And, because I'm not technically a judge, there are SOME people I'm going to hate and bitch about until they're gone *cough Tatiana cough*
