American Idol Results Recap - The First Cut is the Deepest
Princess Midwest is off drinking Captain & diets and trying on tiaras, so you've got me instead. You know, I feel like I'm watching a different show than people who don't know about Dial Idol or Vote for the Worst. The unspoiled masses are going to be in for a shock tonight.
But first, we get a sneak preview of the season to come. Folks, it ain't pretty. Among the special guest stars:
- Diana Ross - ho hum. The various Simons & Nigels that produce Idol do realize that music's been made in the last 10 years, right?
- Jon Bon Jovi - okay, I'm fine with that, he's pretty
- Jennifer Lopez - oh how hip and 2003 of Idol
- Gwen Stefani - awesome, I've been wanting a Yodeling Night!
- Tony Bennett - really? I didn't know Washington State's basketball coach could sing!
- Martina McBride - I can't wait for another Country Night disaster
- Herman's Hermits - it's British Invasion Night. No, I'm not kidding
- Barry Gibb - okay, this not only completely excites me it also puts the "Barry Gibb Talk Show" theme in my head. That'll help over the next hour
Here we are ... in a room full of strangers
Discussin’ politics ... and the issues of the daaaa-aaaay
Talkin’ it up
On the Barry Gibb Talk Show
Talkin’ ‘bout issues
Talkin’ ‘bout real important issues
Talkin’ it up
On the Barry Gibb Talk Show
Checkin’ out politics
In this crazy, crazy to-own oh yeah!
Medley time! It's "Sowing the Seeds of Love" by Tears for Fears. I love this song, but it's crushed under the weight of 24 desperate and mediocre talents. Somewhere out there my darlings Curt Smith and Roland Orzabal are crying. Well actually, they'd be shouting, wouldn't they? :-)
The guys are up first and it's time to cull the herd. Who's safe? Brandon, Sundance (thanks VFTW!), Chris Richardson, Nick (who?) and Blake (duh).
And Paul Kim is out. HA! That's what happens when you don't wear shoes, punk.
Question - we vote these cats out, why do we have to hear them sing again? If we wanted to listen to them sing more, we would have voted for them, right? Idol should do away with the sing off and let the top vote getter have another performance. Reward the good singers, don't punish the audience.
Time for the chicks. Safe: Jordin (damn straight!), Stephanie, Sabrina, Leslie (really?) & Melinda. Antonella is left on stage all alone with the judges' criticism. But of course she's not going home. Vote for the Worst strikes again, my friends. Instead, it's Amy Krebs' chance to sing a sad, sad song. Indeed Amy, you can't make us love you, if we don't.
Fantasia's in the house singing "I'm Here". Not being a big Fantasia fan, I'm not.
Again with the girls. Safe: Hayley, LaKisha & Gina. It's down to Nicole & Alaina. And Nicole Tranquillo is gone. How will the show go on without her? Where can we turn to for a weekly dose of Chaka Khan? A troubled nation needs answers.
Three down, one to go. Who's going home? Not Chris Sligh, Phil (who looks kinda hot with a hat on, I must say), Jared, or A.J. That brings it down to cutie pie Sanjaya and Rudy. One is in the top four, the other is going home. In a completely unshocking event, Rudy Cardenas is going home. I'll miss him and his whole Scott Baioesque thing.
And, in the biggest news of the evening, Daughtry's "Home" has replaced "Had a Bad Day" as the loser song. Way to go, Chris!
Check back next week for more Vital Idol. In the meantime, check out all of our American Idol coverage. We've been doing this for years, people.

|LaKisha-because the judges will keep telling us how awesome she is
Blake-because he is awesome
Chris-because he's fat & funny and sings well
Gina-because she reminds us of Kelly Clarkson
Jared-because he's hot

|I was so glad to see Paul go. There's just something Michael Jackson creepy about him. Don't know what it is, but he's gone and I don't have to look at his feet anymore.
Alaina was the lowest number you can get on dial idol, a 0. I can't believe she survived. She won't last long. I don't thinkg VFTW will have much effect. They tried and failed last year. They won't do much this year.
My final 5 prediction is:
LaKisha - she's good and has a compelling story.
Melinda - because she's like Mandissa last year. Very likeable and very good, but without the "anti gay" question. As Simon said, she has talent with out the arrogance.
Chris - because he has personality. Pretty much the only one of the group that does.
Jared - because he is hot and women are shallow. Yes, they are. Need more proof? 4 words: Ace from last year. Game set match. (and before we get the men are just as shallow bs, I give you Becky the Maxim girl who was gone in the first week last year. Again, game set match). :)
Leslie because I'm shallow and like strawberry blondes that wear hot boots.
"We've been doing this for years"
Yup, that's how I found this fine blog. I did a google on AI and it was one of the links a couple years back. Been a daily stop ever since!
Have a good night.
