American Idol - Am I good or am I good?

Well, that's 2 for 2 now isn't it? Am I that good or is the show getting that predictable? Sure Chris Richardson being in the bottom 2 (crafty use of a half hour Idol producers!) was a shocker. But, it wasn't a shock to see Beyonce 0.5 leave us.






Eliminated: Stephanie Edwards
Bottom 2: Stephanie Edwards, Chris Richardson
My Bottom 3 (elimination pick in blue): Stephanie, Phil Stacey, Haley Scarnato
Dial Idol's Bottom 3: (in order from highest to lowest) Jordin Sparks, Chris Richardson, Stephanie Edwards, Chris Sligh, Gina Glocksen, Haley Scarnato

My advisors tell me that having a bottom 2 was to avoid Sanjaya continuing to get a sympathy vote or votefortheworst.com support. While this all may be true...they had a LOT to fit into a 30 minute show. I mean obviously we couldn't do without performances from Peter Loone and NUNU! (oh I'm so funny!!!!) How about Chris Richardson and Gina Glocksen laughing AT Peter Noone when he waived to them? You know the kind of laugh that's like "we are so cool....too cool to act like we are enjoying this old fart!" I'm sure it will be all over youtube tomorrow.

Anyway...my point is...if they did a bottom 3...they would've needed an extra commercial break to narrow it down to 2. So instead...they crammed in performances, AMERICAN IDOL GIVES BACK information and Ford Commercials into the showtime and spent like 2 minutes on the actual elimination!

So now the question becomes....how long will Sanjaya last? Well only time will tell. But you will see the judges avoid giving him too harsh of critiques in order to speed up the process. Of course, now that he's in the top 10, they may want to keep him around for a bit to cause controversy and increase the ratings of the struggling show! (I'm telling you...TOO FUNNY!)
Now what happened to Ryan announcing next week's theme on the results show? That's driving me crazy. I always liked to look ahead in the results show blog. Oh well, I guess that's your loss! Saves me some time to prepare for LOST!
I guess that's it for this week. Feel free to congratulate me for picking the castoff 2 weeks in a row. Might be a record for me! And let's all thank Phil Stacey for wearing a hat tonight! See you next week for more Idol Fun!
