Maybe tonight wasn't her night to go home, but surely she should have been in the Bottom 3? I think her close friend Danny must be rallying the troops. Surely if there were a Bottom 4, Ramiele would be included? Surely.
But tonight we celebrated David Hernandez home. I was a bit surprised, I must admit. I mean, sure, his performance last night was beyond cheesy, but I thought America would give him another chance. Perhaps his sordid past caught up with him? Perhaps America didn't buy the Pizza Bistro line?
Kristy Lee Cook is the one who should be celebrating. Celebrating those genes of hers. None of the other contestants could have pulled off the countrified version of "Eight Days a Week". Her voice had nothing to do with it - but her face, her tight abs and her long legs certainly did.
And as long as we are listing those who should count their blessings, let's not forget David Archuletta. America gave him a gift tonight. Refresh my memory; didn't several people go home during Hollywood week because they forgot their song lyrics? He is one lucky duck.
I'm starting to worry about Jason. Where is his family? Every time the camera pans the audience for the support shot, we see three or four "Friends from College" but no family members. Mrs. Castro? Mr. Castro? Hello? Where are you people? And, I'm sorry, but he's going to have to get a handle on the interviews and that includes the live phone calls from Average Joe's. Don't get me wrong, Jason is still high on my favorites list (and I believe high on a few other things, as well, but that's neither here nor there.)
How about David Cook taking my advice and covering up that head of his? I would have preferred the extensions, but I understand it's a lengthy process and so I'll sit tight and give him until next week. But let me make myself perfectly clear: there is no reason to wear that hat again. Ever.
Good to see Katherine McPhee back on the Idol stage. What's left of her, anyway. That dress left little to the imagination and no place to hide her earpiece and all the wires. It was all a bit odd. And speaking of odd...Sanjaya and his sister were in the house tonight.
So, one down, ten to go....
