Well, 2 out of 3 ain't bad, right? Ashton was the clear one to go across the board. It was great watching the judges pretend to deliberate during her "SAVE" performance. I really thought they'd get rid of that SHAM this year. I even caught Ashton roll her eyes right before performing, and it seemed like none of the contestants were too sad to see her go DURING her performance either. And if she acknowledged that she needed to choose better songs, why would she pick to sing the same Diana Ross song as her saving grace? I think her heart wasn't in it and was ready to go. Well, no love lost here Ashton! CYA!
The rest of the episode was okay. Diddy Dirty Money is a waste of existence. Adam Lambert was okay. I liked that he was toned down, but I wasn't too thrilled with his original song. It wasn't awful though. Seeing the Idol Mansion was fun although how about them all having to sleep in the same rooms? (girl's room and guy's room) AWKWARD!! Pretty cool pool table though.
The big question of the night though was, what is wrong with Casey Abrams??!? This is the 2nd time he has had to go to the hospital since the live shows have begun. Is this going to occur on a regular basis? Maybe there will be more news on this tomorrow.
Oh, and I totally forgot to mention it, the Idol Group song actually wasn't too bad!! That may be the first time I ever said that. You can't go wrong with singing some MJ tunes. But, at times, it seemed like they ACTUALLY were singing and not lip synching a pre-recorded track.
Most awkward moment of the night: When Jennifer Lopez told Haley that she sang well during the group song. Haley just started talking and talking and talking about how much fun she had. Meanwhile, Ryan was ready 5 minutes before to read the results. Whew, painful.
That's about all I have for tonight folks. Top 12 next week. Hopefully, they bring it better than they did this week or this whole return to Idol Blogging might get old, FAST! Hope you enjoyed my ramblings and I'll see you next week!
