Top 12! The Results Show!

Hey Y'all! It's time to vote someone off the island . . .er . . .wrong reality show. . . Anyway, we're about to go from 12 to 11. . . in about 58 minutes.

Ok, here we go. The first results show of the Main Event – The Top 12. And, hmmm, let’s see . . . what movie is the Idol Machine plugging tonight . . . ahhh, the Horton hoo movie thingy.

We had 29 million votes last night. . . seems a little low to me, but maybe it’s on par with previous years. Our judges have been introduced, and my only comment is . . . where did Paula find the Star Trek memorabilia store that clearly provided her with that jacket. Ugh, Jim Carrey . . . Um, excuse me, they are doing another round of the Lennon/McCartney song book next week?!? I mean, don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed some of the performances . . . but they only had 25 to choose from to begin with . . . 12 are gone . . . so, the 11 remaining contestant only have 13 songs to choose from . . . Hmmmm . . . surely that’s not right.

Oh, here we go . . . the obligatory group number. A Beatles medley of sorts . . . no, I guess it actually was a Beatles Medley. Anyway, everyone is doing fairly well . . . Amanda kind of cracks me up with her melodic screeching . . . And Little David A. seems to have recovered tonight. He sounds MUCH BETTER! And he looks really cute with his doubled up polos . . . and . . . we go to commercial.

After the retrospective, we go to the folks sitting on the couch. Here we go . . . Carly, Michael, Jason, and Syesha were asked to stand up . . . this is different . . . they’re trying to throw us here . . . Carly is SAFE! As she should be. Michael Johns is SAFE . . . and excited! Jason Castro . . . I just giggled . . . HE IS SAFE . . . HOLLA! Syesha . . . we all thought she should be in the bottom 3 . . . And she is! I don’t mean to sound excited, but it’s nice to be right. Per our contest, we each get one point! Oh for the love of Brian Dunkleman, why are they making her sing. I really don’t love this part . . . it makes me quite uncomfortable . . . you know, like when you go to the pharmacy to buy (insert personal product name here) and there are, let’s say, eleventy thousand people in line watching you pick it out. Thank goodness she is done.

And we’re back, with what would appear to be our yearly take on the Ford Focus ad. . . . “They are going the distance”. We’re back on the couch, and there is Ryan and is skinny tie . . . circa 1985 . . . I’m sorry, did Ryan just say that “Idol has touched these contestants in lots of different ways”? . . . um . . . anyway . . .The contestants are now telling us exactly how and in what way “Idol has touched them”. Oh, and Amanda just met the lead singer of REO Speedwagon . . . oh, sorry, cue the music . . . Chekezie, Amanda, Kristy Lee, and David Cook are asked to stand . . . Ryan asks Chekezie to come down and join him, and take a seat . . . He is SAFE! Amanda is next . . . and she is SAFE! David Cook and is cute hat . . . get to have a seat . . . They are SAFE . . . rut ro for Kristy Lee . . . she has already asked for her microphone to sing . . . we’ll see if they’re doing one per group . . . she is indeed in the bottom three. It looks like three of our five voters were more in tune with America than we were. NONE OF US got that one right . . .Oh well, And, there goes Kristy Lee singing in that very wide legged stance . . . and there’s Sanjya . . . no pony hawk unfortunately . . . and she’s done. I’m unclear on Simon’s comment about Kristy Lee being “sarcastic” about country last night. I must have missed that one.
And we’re back . . . and apparently, taking calls . . .I’m unclear . . . And Paige wants to know which AI judge Jason Castro wants to be . . . ok . . . and he’s the most unlike Paula . . . and he wants to be a hybrid . . . ok . . . this is weird. Ronnie has auditioned six times, and wants advice from the judges . . . insert snarky Simon comment. Oh sweet goodness, this calling in thing is an unfortunate time filler. And something about Simon and Ryan mud wrestling . . .

And, back to the music . . . David Foster with the return of the McPheever . . . mercy this girl is beautiful. Wow, she sounds great. I forget what a beautiful voice this girl has . . . Wow! Oh, I’m so glad she and the DF are working together. Should be a great CD.

And we’re back . . . Jim Carrey blah blah . . . here come the last 4 . . . Lil David, Brooke, David H., and Ramiele. Lil David is up . . . and, of course, our lil teddy bear is SAFE. Brooke is up . . . I heart her . . . she is SAFE. Ok, it’s down to David H. and Ramiele . . . both of whom were in all of our bottom 3’s. Looks like we’re all about to get another point and one was replaced by Kristy Lee Cook. Oh sweet goodness, Ramiele is SAFE. WHAT? Did they hear her version of “In My Life”. WTF? Ugh! Voters, get it together. Don’t get me wrong DHern was just short of hideous last night, but seriously! Oh well, looks like we will all get two points . . . boo hiss . . . oh yeah, DHern is singing . . . and stuff.

Here we go. Did America get it right? Randy says probably . . . maybe. Paula says she has never seen a “more stronger” bottom three. . . er . . . um . . . anyway . . . Simon and Paula think this bottom three is right. Syesha is sent back to the couches . . . surprisingly. Kristy Lee and DHern . . . and . . . O MA GA!
Again, he was just this side of horrendous, but seriously y’all, he should NOT be going home. . . .not with the Syesha/Ramiele combo from last night. Oh well, this is American Idol!

You’ve now read my VERY long post. What do y’all think? Let us know . . .
