Tonight we are going to get the results from last night’s Disco themed show, and I find myself filled with trepidation. With seven remaining and two to go home, it seems to be the perfect set up for a shocking departure.
Paula taught the contestants to dance like it was 1989. What was up with that? You know I remember when I used to get Paula defenders every time I took a shot at her. That doesn’t happen any more. I read today that her contract is up at the end of the year. Bye. By the way, her choreography was silly and awful. They need to take those Grammy’s back. Was that just to distract us from the fact that the group song is no longer being sung live?
Ryan quickly dispatched Lil Rounds to no one’s surprise. Good. I did wonder what he meant when he said, “We need someone like you in this competition.” What did he mean, Black? I am so confused, and I will get a ton of hits on my American Idol Racist story again. It always depresses me when it happens that way.
I did not care to get the names of the two old women guest singers who sang so terribly early in the show. The phone rang and I missed their names, and I decided that I just could not rewind and relive that (live is not the right word). Then we were forced to listen to a top five bad act ever on Idol, K.C. and the Sunshine Band. Words fail me. No, do not Google this and watch it. Just let it go. Do it for Earth Day (just kidding).
Kris was safe, and I breathed a sigh of relief. Adam was safe, and no one was surprised. Danny was declared safe, and at that point, I did not really care what happened. Anoop was to the bottom three (There were only two at this point, Ryan).
Ryan’s bit of always trying to cause tension is so clumsy it makes want to turn the show off. SHUT UP AND READ THE CARD! You are not smart enough to be clever! Matt was safe, and Allison was included in the bottom three. I wonder of the judges regretted wasting the save last week when they saw Anoop and Allison sitting their waiting their fate.
David Archuleta was the ex-Idol guest for the night. It was refreshing compared with the earlier acts, but pretty pitchy throughout, and the falsetto was not easy on the ears. It was OK, but I definitely wouldn’t be buying his album after that performance. Oh yeah, that’s why David Cook won.
Anoop was sent home, even though he did pretty well this week. The truth is, we are at that point, and a good singer will be going home every week at this point until Adam wind in a few weeks.
