American Idol - Sometimes I impress even myself

Well, it had to happen sooner or later. I've been on a very cold streak. I think perfecting a double elimination prediction gives me some street cred back though! Ladies and gentelmen (the very few of you probably reading!), we have our final four!

Eliminated: Phil Stacey, Chris Richardson
Bottom 3: n/a
My Bottom 3 Picks (elimination picks in blue): Chris Richardson, Phil Stacey, LaKisha Jones

Phil, farewell, you sure went down in a blaze of glory. Chris, you overstayed your welcome. Goodbye to you as well!

I guess it was nice of Ryan/producers to let Jordin not sweat too much worrying about elimination. I really didn't notice it last week, but people were pretty upset that they made Jordin think she was going home. I just figured the finalists were all in on the SHOCKING non-elimination. But based on Jordin's tears, maybe not! Anyway....I think a final four of Jordin, Melinda, Blake, and Lakisha is satisfying for the subpar season. All 4 of them have now delivered a great performance where they all deserve to be here. I guess there still could be a few twists and turns along the way, but LaKisha should be the next one out the door. Especially when Barry Gibb rolls into town for BOOGIE FEVER! Yippie!

Couple notes about the dragged out hour of a results show.
  • Ummmm Robin Thicke? what on earth was that?
  • Ruben, Fantasia, and Taylor all gave a public service announcement asking for donations. Translation: You guys are the winners of idol that we like to hide....we gave Kelly and Carrie singing appearances. You guys can't do much harm just talking for a couple minutes each! (although note: Taylor got the most applause out of all of them).
  • Bon Jovi performs their supposed debut into the COUNTRY Music arena. Still soundslike a Bon Jovi sappy power ballad to me! "Remember all that hair we used to have?" Oh yes could we forget those beautiful lockes??!
  • Carrie Underwood's top selling Itune cover of "I'll Stand By You" is used as Exit Music for Phil. Man that is a powerful little rendition. Who hasn't bought it yet???'s almost I've shared enough thoughts for this week. Time for LOST! Feel free to congratulate me as always! It's been a subpar elimination picking season for me. But I just doubled my accurate guesses from 2 to 4! Yay! See you next week. Put on your boogie shoes!

I was a little surprised that Ryan didn't comment on the performances from last week when he started the eliminations. I could have used a refresher. After all, the votes from both weeks were combined. Oh well, I guess maybe they were trying to save some time by only talking about this week's performances.

I wished they would have had the judges review Robin Thick's performance . . . .

FYI - the Top 20 songs were selected and posted on for voting. You will need to register on the site to vote. Take the opportunity to listen in (be forewarned: most are of the "Do I Make You Proud" genre but there are 1 or 2 gems in there).
