American Idol Voting Results - Week 4
Since I did a recap of the show this week, it's only fair that I also cover this week's results show. (plus, it gives me an excuse to not work on my paper.)
So, without further ado,
Welcome, says Seacrest, who is smartly wearing a conservative suit, a welcome change from that hideous excuse for a sweater that he was wearing last night. Most popular non-finale vote show ever, blah, blah, 32.8 million votes, 3 of which are John's. We see a recap from last night, which manages to make the show look even more boring than it actually was, not an easy task. They show clips of the judges' reactions from last night, and every clip of Simon speaking authentically has Paula speaking over him over him.
Fantasia performs. This is the first season that I've watched Idol, so I've never managed to see her perform before. Hey, why start now? Skip!
The judges give her a standing-O, so it must have been good, right? Of course they do have a vested interest in her doing well, so I suppose I shouldn't expect anything less. Ok, now i had to go back and watch the performance to see if this O was warranted. I don't know, sounded like a lot of yelling to me. But what do I know?
Fantasia's advice to the contestants: come out here and act ugly. Hey, say what you will about Fantasia, but at least she practices what she preaches.
Commercial time! Lead-in to the show is a bizzare Ford commerical featuring the remaining contestants. Bo Bice rocking out the window of what looks like a Contour. Federov driving Anwar around in a Ford Explorer. Is he even old enough to drive? Maybe it was a private lot.
Nikko is on the bottom three. Yes, I'm 1 for 1.
Vonzell also in the bottom three. Wow, that's a bit surprising. I suppose picking a Babs song turned off more people that she thought.
Scott, also in the bottom three. Guess Kris was right - America hates a wife beater.
The first 3 people called out all got sent to the bottom 3. Does that ever happen?
Seacrest is asking Bo Bice if he's surprised that he isn't in the bottom 3 - Bo says "yes, extremely." John, it looks like your mad drunken dialing paid off.
Boringov admits that he sucked last night. Wow, next time he may finally come to terms with the fact that the Earth is round.
Seacrest asks the judges which person they're most surprised to see up there. Paula says "you know, it really doesn't matter at this stage of the game, everyone left is going to get a recording contract." Umm, does Paula realize that she just destroyed the basic premise of the show? If everyone there is getting a contract, then why bother even holding the competition? This isn't Soviet Russian Idol, you dingbat. Simon says that Paula is wrong. Sad, the only judge making any sense on American Idol isn't even American. Rule Britannia!
Vonzell is safe.
Seacrest calls Nikko the "comeback kid" and he doesn't giggle like a school girl this time. (it's OK, Nikko fans, I'm sure he's still giggling on the inside.)
Scott - safe. Maybe Seacrest was afraid that he'd get savoled if he gave Scott bad news.
And that means that (tah-dah!) Nikko is finally voted off the island. Thank GOD.
Nikko performs. I hit tivo-delete. I hope your face never graces my screen again.

|Well, I'm gratified that not only does the Tsunami-victim group-song for which people voted will be on a CD in a couple weeks, but the other two will be on the same CD. It gives me yet another chance to totally ignore them.
I'm betting the CDs were pressed three weeks ago. But then I'm cynical like that. I'm freak like that. I'm cool like that.
Sorry...the Muppet Ford commercial is still in my head.

|I see Scott joins that Pittsnogle kid from West Virginia in having his last name turned into a verb.
I'd rather be pittsnogled than savoled.

|if your name doesnt get turned into a verb, i.e. if you get passed over, is called being "tanted?"
|# April 6th, 2005 8:56 PM JohnTant|
|I think being "tanted" is receiving a bunch of votes cast under the influence. |

|i wonder what being prusynskied is |
|# April 6th, 2005 9:01 PM james|
|i don't know, kris, but i'm sure alcohol and yelling is involved.
|# April 6th, 2005 9:02 PM JohnTant|
|I'm reasonably certain a badger also plays some kind of role. |
|# April 6th, 2005 9:02 PM kris|
|there would be no yelling |
|# April 6th, 2005 9:03 PM kris|
|hmmm...being so being prusynskied is when you're drunkenly denied by a mascot? |
|# April 6th, 2005 9:04 PM JohnTant|
|Well....with The Amazing Race on in the background. But sure. |
|# April 6th, 2005 9:08 PM james|

|Nikko's gone! Thank you, America. This almost makes up for the whole Michael Bolton career thing...almost.
And what the heck was Vonzell doing in the bottom three? The Streisand curse strikes again.
