Still reeling from the aftershocks that Neil was not on Idol last night, I was surprised to enjoy the show as much as I did. I felt like no one was great but no one was terrible. Also, I was so distracted by Paula's boobies that I had a hard time focusing on the singers!
Michael: Not your best. I must disagree with Paula: you looked better than you sounded. And what's up with the ascots? Two weeks running now with the ascots. Odd.
Syesha: You are always better than I think you'll be, but never sublime. Choosing a Fantasia song was not wise. Bottom three.
Kristy Lee: Why, oh why did America not get rid of you during Beatles week? Why? Now we are forced to endure sparkly tank tops and good but not great singing. Will this perhaps be your last time in the bottom three?
David C.: You suffered from having been so good for weeks running that this perfectly OK performance actually sounded pretty bad. Loved the hand sign at the end though. Inspired.
David A.: Thank you for not choosing "We Are the World." I was really fearful that you would do that to me, and that I would throw up a little in my mouth when you did. Instead, nice song and very solid performance.
Carly: What are you so mad about? Why can you not have fun? This whole Idol experience just seems really painful for you, which makes you hard to like even though I really want to. Bottom three.
Jason: Best of the night. Perfect song for you, and it takes a special guy to feel comfortable playing that little tiny ukulele in front of millions. The pants, though, still need work. And those white shoes! Dude, it looked like you were wearing cruise ships on your feet!
Brooke: Love the song. Would still love to be your friend, even if that performance was on the dull side.
