Update....Contestant Drama

As I watched tonight, I made a list of all the people who made it *in* to the top 24 and when it came to the last bit between Thaddeus and Andy, I was only on #22. So, I figured I missed a name when they were doing some of those quick sequences. As the show ended I added in Tim Urban who I did not remember ever seeing on the show...EVER. But NOOO, your diligent Blogger did NOT miss a thing. In fact, Chris Golightly, the contestant with that awful Orphan Annie Hair, and who was evidently shown in some of the final 24 shots at the end of the show, was recently disqualified because he had an expired contract he didn't tell Idol about. Tim Urban took his place and since the only scene they shot of him was the one telling him no....we didn't see him tonight.

Further drama...they must REALLY love Big Mike because it appears his father did spill the beans ahead of time and that should have disqualified him too. I still don't know why they didn't pick Thaddeus to take Golightly's place except that they didn't want another big black guy stealing votes from Big Mike.

Lets Go On With The Show!

Finally, we have our top 24. None of whom I yet hate. However, I think Todrick might be the first one on my to go list. I think Thaddeus should have been there in Todrick's place. And, Andy Garcia wept quite a bit tonight which really annoyed me. Newflash Andy, you are not the only contestant who wants to do it for his *family*.

About one half of those who made it have not been featured very prominently, so there may be one who will break out among them. My favorites so far are Lilly and Crystal. That Haely is *annoying* as Simon said and while she seems like a sweet young girl, I think I will be tired of her after 1 song. None of the men stand out to me yet, although I like Aaron Kelly, the sixteen year old. I still think 16-17 is too young to be on this show, though.

Well, next week we should finally get some entertainment. I am excited to see them all sing.
