American Idol: Elvira Sent Packing!

Hello Idolists! Well, I didn't see last night's episode so excuse me if I say anything that doesn't make sense. It was on at the bar so I think I got the gist. We saw Kellie Pickler go up another "um...size," lots of drama of who was in the top 10, some Idol Gives Back tear jerking Elliott Yamin moments, and of course a surprise Bottom 3er! What probably wasn't TOO much of a surprise was our eventual cast-off (even though I didn't pick her once again!). Ladies and gentlemen, Beetlejuice has left the building!!!!

Amanda Overmeyer
Bottom 3: Amanda, Kristy Lee Cook, Carly Smithson
My Bottom 3: Amanda, Kristy, Ramiele
Dialidol Bottom 3: Chickezie, Amanda, Kristy

We knew the rocker pseudo singing nurse wouldn't last TOO long. But I guess with the Votefortheworst support I thought she had a little extra time. Now, I'm sure Kristy Lee Cook will be getting that WORST support and it could propel her even further. But if you recall, Simon did state that he saw Kristy getting to the top 10 and no further. So next week could be her week! I'm sure the only thing I missed by not watching Idol with Audio was the theme for next week! That would allow me to analyze everyone's chances. Oh well, nothing like the element of surprise next week!

Speaking of surprise, CARLY in the bottom 3? I mean, I wasn't too impressed with her this week but I never thought her fans would abandon her! Here's another question for your general wonderingment. Why does Carly cover up the tattoos on Results night and not for performance night? It's amazing how quickly I forget about BOY GEORGE once that art is covered! I'm sure Carly will bounce back next week and leave room for possibly Ramiele to re-enter the bottom 3 along with some other underachiever!

Of course, The Artichoke remains LOVED BY MOST and will be safe for many weeks to come. But I'm still sticking to my guns on this one! I mean, I am due to get an IDOL PICK wrong one year right? The only year I didn't get it right was season 2 (thinking Clay would overcome the velvet teddy bear). Oh well...we'll just have to wait and see!
That's all I have for you this week folks. See you next week for whatever THEME was announced last night!
(PS: Good call commenter Ian on picking Amanda!)

Hey, thanks for the shout-out.

I was surprised by Carly being in the Bottom 3 too. I listened to Vote For the Worst's radio show last night, and someone who called in suggested that the reason she was in the Bottom 3 was because most of her fans were still hung over from St. Patrick's Day. I think there might actually be some validity to that theory with the way she plays up her Irishness.

Ian....LOL....I wouldn't doubt it one moment.

Mike...I sure wish you had time to do a Survivor recap every week along with your Idol and Lost recaps. You've got quite the talent. Looking forward to next week's edition.
