American Idol Results Recap - Down to the Sweet 16
I'd like to dedicate this recap to my late grandmother, who was a fine singer back in her day.
I also like puppies.
The votes are in, but let's drag this out a bit. So first, it's medley time! I love the medleys. "Joy to the World" shows us that:
- Sligh can't sing uptempo songs
- Timberfake's voice gets lost in the background
- Antonella sounds pretty good (really)
- Stephanie has fantastic taste in frocks
- Gina took Simon's advice and dressed "edgier" tonight
- Phil took the world's advice and wore a hat
Time for you to go home...
The guys are up first. Safe: Phil, Sligh, Sundance, Blake & Jared. Not so safe: Nick "vote for" Pedro. My prediction was correct. Yay me.
On the distaff side, Stephanie, Gina (whew), Sabrina & Doolittle are safe. Alaina Alexander is going home. America doesn't want to make nice with her. Heh. But awww, Alaina is so emotional that she can't really do her sing out. That's understandable. As cruel as it is to the audience to make us listen to her again, it's also quite cruel to crush her dreams and then immediately ask her to perform.
Ugh. Kellie "Kick" Pickler's in the house. Her dress is a lovely shade of blue and she's wearing some nice silver pumps, but (and the gentlemen in the crowd will surely disagree) she's showing way too much breast. Leave something to the imagination, kiddo. Her song is "I Wonder". It's not that bad, if you like fake twangy country. Unfortunately, I don't, so all I'm wondering is when this will finally end.
Two down, two to go. Safe guys: Timberfake & Brandon. It's down to Sanjaya and A.J. The show's going for suspense here, but as anyone who's visited Dial Idol knows, A.J. Tabaldo is voted off. Sanjaya, welcome to the world of John Stevens. Oh, and my boot prediction was correct. I rock.
Girls: Lakisha - safe. Hayley - safe. It's down to Antonella, Jordin & Leslie. Antonella is safer than safe. America loves a vixen. Leslie Hunt is gone. Some of our readers are no doubt devastated.
Ryan tries to make us feel guilty for how we voted. Paula, the person who constantly talks about how people look lectures us that it's a "singing competition". Hypocrite. In theory, shouldn't the top 24 of a 100,000 or so aspiring Idols all be good? If there's crappy singers still in the competition. It's the judges' fault for putting them through in the first place.
Anyway, we'll be back next week. Be sure to do your homework.

|Heh, Leslie was kind of funny at the very end of her sing out. "Why did I decide to skat?". And I think she said "America hates jazz". Drat. I knew she was a keeper. |

|Bye, dogwalker. America doesn't hate jazz, it hates you. And leggings. And weird faces. And manscaping. |

|Yeah, I'm sad. But that's ok. I kind of figured it. She was hot, but, well, her singing did suck. Badly. She did have some personality, something sorely lacking in most of the remaining people, but in the end, it is a supposed to be a singing competition.
Man, what did Pick Pickler do to her hair? What's up with Simon? He wouldn't even look at her or give polite applause. Wonder what happened there.
5 words for next week: roach, glacier, neuter, charcoal, taco. Have fun with those!

|PMW, I liked her leggings and wierd faces. :( Of course, as everyone here will testify to, I too am wierd so it stands to reason.
My wife is laughing at me. My hottie is gone, hers (Jared) is still there.
C'est La Vie!

|The creepy thing is Kickler looks exactly like Tammy Wynette in the 80s, when she was 50. |

|I didn't catch anything about the boob job. I was probably thinking about her shoes. |
