I know that everyone is saying their goodbyes, but not Haterade. He still has 2 more columns to write up, and 120 minutes of less than inspiring singing to cover for a show that, unlike YBNBY, may need to be put out in the pasture and be shot.
So after spending the next 6 days wondering if America intentionally tortured me by getting rid of SIobhan Magnus and keeping in Casey James (they didn't - Siobhan wasn't good last week), I'll be getting tortured even more when Harry Connick Jr. takes the music of Frank SInatra and interprets them for the Idolers (Read: This batch is so uncreative musically, that we need someone to interpret the music FOR them). At least none of the judges will be complaining about the arrangement.
Haterade hated Michael Lynche's performance last week - and apparently, so did the rest of America, who forced the judges to burn their save for him. Can Michael rebound enough to send 2 of his peers packing, or did he just delay the inevitable?
Make that 3 straight bottom 2's that Haterade has called. Can he make it 4 in a row? We'll check this week out for who will be the Sergeant of the Lonely Hearts Club Band and who should have Let It be as we once again revisit the Lennon-McCarthy Songbook.
Happy Passover! For Jews all over the world, this is the first few days (depending on when you're reading this) where you must strike out all leavened things from your eating menu. We'll see who Haterade (who has nailed the last 2 elimnations) thinks will be stricken from your musical diet.
Why is tonight unlike any other night? Because it's a $100,000 ticket to go on the American Idol tour that's on the line. 10 of them go and one of them doesn't. Tune in to see which Idoler is going to see a lot of money go away.
Last night, the women gave us their last musical attempt to get into the Top 12. Tonight, the men do the same. Will they stand and deliver? Or will the sleep-fest by the women sound light and lively by comparison?
Will the women be better than the guys this week? Will the women be better than how they were last week? Will Crystal Bowersox be able to sing? How will she sound? Will Haterade actually get anything right this season?
Now this was supposed to be the women's sing song tonight, but Crystal Bowersox has been deemed unable to sing, so we get to hear the guys first this week. I hope Crystal feels better so she can perform in 24 hours. I hope my eardrums will feel better after the caucophonous mess that was last week.
Tuesday's episode featured the top 12 ladies, which was an average episode featuring some decent performances, some nerves, and a bunch of train wrecks. Now the judges have insisted this year that the ladies are better than the guys. So after this episode, the mentality will either be that 1. The judges are completely wrong and they were just saying it to try to manufacture a female winner or 2. The judges were right and I just spent 2 hours of my life having as much fun as Conan O'Brien at a Jay Leno family reunion.
