American Idol: Down to Nine

Not entirely surprised that Michael was sent home but I was disappointed Megan didn't even make the bottom three. Someone else said "What does Megan have to do to deserve the bottom three? Club a baby seal on stage?" That pretty much sums up my feelings about her.

Michael wasn't meant for the final and it was only a matter of time before he left. Looks like that time came sooner than later. Matt was a complete surprise and his poor showing was entirely undeserved but who am I to say? It's not like I'm voting or anything. But right now it's about attracting the largest following - oh, who am I kidding, it's always about attracting the largest folowing - and the same fan base that's attracted to Matt is likely attracted to several of the other men so that coalition is split. It'll consolidate later but for now it puts those of Matt's ilk in danger.

The song Smokey Robinson and Joss Stone sang was kinda meh. Quick, whistle the melody. See? And though it was good to see and hear Stevie Wonder, what's up with the Obama shout out? All right, Obama's President, and you're glad, we get it Stevie. Sheesh.

I didn't catch what next week's theme will be but, man, I can't wait.


  1. i wish the other judges (all the ones besides Simon) would think up some new generic observations before the next show

  2. Really, it's only Simon's opinion that counts, isn't it? We'll sit politely through the other judges but it's only Simon who's straight enough - and cruel enough - to tell it like it is. I think the contestants listen to him more, too, though sometimes they don't agree.
