The entertainment tonight was better than the past two weeks with Lana Del Daddy's Money and the Menage woman, but not all that memorable. J Lo's new video is pretty much soft porn and I wonder what her voice sounds like without autotune. I still don't get putting the mandatory rapper in the middle of a song but I guess my age is showing. Evidently, The Wanted is some hot new band. I had a hard time figuring out who was in the band and who were the backup dancers. It looked like the band had 16 members at one point. I don't know why the song So Glad You Came is a hit. It sounded like this generation's version of bubble gum music to me but as I recall it did not have the mandatory rap thrown in so I will be thankful for small favors. Kellie Pickler was really sweet with the contestants. I wasn't watching the season she was on but I gather she got a lot of flack from Simon, in particular. I'm glad she is a success. But hasn't she basically remade her face? She doesn't look at all like she did the last time she made a guest appearance on Idol.
As we watched the group sitting on the couches before the results were shown, I said to myself: They put the bottom three in the front. No surprise on that score either (except to Jennifer and Randy about Deandre).
I think Jimmy pretty accurately summed up the individual performances. I'm having a big crush on Jimmy. I'm glad he somewhat defended Elise.
There has been a lot of talk about Elise's *attitude*. After Randy and Jennifer basically said she needed to go when they said *America got it half right*, I cannot really fault her for being a little hurt and defensive. I think that comment by Jennifer, which Randy echoed, was inexcusable.
I'm not sure I'm right about this, but just after Ryan said Deandre was eliminated, Elise said *Oh...I didn't get it*. I think she thought she was eliminated. I'm glad she wasn't and I'm hoping she comes back next week with a great performance that knocks JLo on her much vaunted behind.
