Never in the history of Idol has a departing contestant sobbed as much as Alaina did last night. That was just too painful to watch. (That is her name, isn't it? Honestly, I still cannot tell the blondes apart.) To be honest, I did think the other blonde was going home last night. But does it really matter? It's just a matter of weeks before all the blondes are sent packing and David Archuletta is the sole survivor. How about her begging Ryan not to make her sing? Holy mother of pearl was that uncomfortable.
Alexandriaessa (whose name I never mastered) was no surprise. And while she held herself together nicely, sweet, Little David had a hard time with her departure. I think she needs to play volleyball. I'm not sure she has the skill set, but she's got the look.
Robbie the Rocker, who apparently sports a wig, (that's what TMZ is reporting) was sent home to find his identity. He will not be missed. (I hope the paparazzi gets a shot of him sans the wig). Lady Luck was on Luke's side last night....I'm sure he'll be the next to go.
And Jason, Jason, Jason is headed back to the restaurant where he'll resume his gig as a singing waiter. Love how Ryan asked Simon for advice for the departing Jason, but opted to go with Paula (the kinder, gentler judge) when he needed help with the sobbing Alaina.
And, no, I will not comment on The Group Sing. It was embarrassing enough having to watch Alaina melt down in front of 30 million viewers, I could not bring myself to watch that Group Sing thing.
Way too much sobbing. I watched Tuesday's episode of The Biggest Loser last night and the crying that went on there almost put me over the edge. Four grown (I'm talking LARGE) men blubblering like idiots. Nobody needs to see that on TV.
I'm just glad that the week is over. I don't have to turn on that TV for several nights. It's all about smiles today....
