Bye Bye Michael

He is, without a doubt, one of the classiest acts I've seen on Idol in three seasons of watching even if he is not as polished a performer as nearly all of his competitors. I think he knew he was going home before the show started. I noticed last week when Allison was shockingly put in the bottom three he comforted her (its only the bottom 3 don't worry) and then tonight when Ryan was doing his stupid suspense tease with Lil he was not having any of it and reassuring Lil. I'm glad he made the tour and I hope he gets paid a pretty good sum for it to help out his family. I also hope he can maybe make some sort of career out of music.

Matt in the bottom three was a big shocker. Even more shocking was that he was evidently 2nd to last in the voting behind Megan and Scott. Megan is the choice of Vote For The Worst so that perhaps explains why she wasn't in the bottom three but I really thought the last two standing tonight would be Michael and Scott after Megan was pronounced safe.

I enjoyed the group number for once because I know the songs. Poor Rueban sang what I think is a boring song from his album and if that is the best song on it I don't think he will be collectin any Grammy's next year. And he sweated....a lot...which he cannot help but it was distracting.

Well Smokey is Smokey and of course he had to sing. I have never heard of Joss whats her name but she has a pretty good voice (what Megan's at times promises to be). Still I was rather creeped out by an old man singing a love song to a girl who is his great granddaughter's age. And why was she introduced as his *special guest*? Even creepier.

I thought I would have at least one hour of tv free from the shadow of our dear leader, Obama, but Stevie Wonder had to make sure we....like in 1984....are fully aware that our Big Brother Dear Leader is watching over us and shout out love to him on our behalf. Ruined my night.

Worth my vote.

Up to this point I could (and have) wrap up the season in one word: Eh.

I had no real favorites, I didn't really care who won/lost, and all I could blog about was who sucked the least. FINALLY the contestants are getting in their groove, and I have less and less to complain about. I even voted.

My opinion, worst to best:

Michael Sarver - I'm over you. I liked the roughneck gig, and I think you're probably a really nice guy. But you're not as good as you think you are.

Meaghan Joy - It PAINS me so much to say this. And I hope that she gets one more chance to maybe pick the right song. I love her, I do. But it was so bad tonight, Meaghan. And why did you end your performance with the "my fans will still be there" comment? Because, Meaghan, they might not be.

Scott - He's a good piano player. But he's not a good singer. And he turns EVERY song into a Christian Rock song. Which will be good for his career after Idol, because he's not going to get much farther.

Kris - Good thing you're good looking, kid. Because every performance is the same-old "trying to get my guitar to sound good with this song even though it doesn't as I stand here and look hot so the tweens will vote for me"

Danny Gokey - Move over folks, make room for Danny's huge head. My husband said he was cocky in Hollywood week and I was just blinded, but it's clear now. Did you not know they'd show the video of you saying "I'm going to take Smokey's advice because he's smarter than me" before you DIDN'T take Smokey's advice? I wish the judges weren't so rushed, because I would have killed to see them take you down a peg.

Anoop - While I still don't understand why he's a "heartthrob", I love what he's doing now. THIS is what you should have been doing instead of dancing around like MC Hammer.

Matt - He's climbing the ladder to the top at warp speed. This guy ROCKS. I loved his start behind the piano then get up and rock it out moves, and he really does have a kick @ss voice! And "Let's Get it On" ... Be still, my beating heart!

Lil Rounds - I love everything about her: her voice, her personality, her looks. Why the judges didn't give her positive feedback (except Paula, yay Paula) is beyond me. Except, I think that they held her to some sort of higher standard this week because she's black ... which pisses me off.

Allison - I was singing "Papa Was A Rolling Stone" all night (much to my husband's chagrin). Even if she doesn't win this whole contest, she's going to have a career. This is the FIRST song I actually wanted to download from iTunes, and it's the FIRST time I've called to vote. I'm on team Allison, 100%.

Adam Lambert - This feels weird. He was absolutely amazing tonight! My favorite performance of the entire season, without a doubt. I wish he'd do this every week ... unique is one thing, weird and over-the-top is another. Ditch the weird, stick with the unique, and you might have just won yourself a fan.
