Holy mother of pearl was that show loooong tonight. They need to cut it back down to 30 minutes. And even that is 25 minutes too long. Those ridiculous phone calls add nothing to the entertainment value of the show. And really, must we give every Idol runner-up a chance to sing and plug their new CD? I think not.
Ok, before we talk about the fall of Kristy Lee Cook, can we talk about Mariah? And her diamond studded microphone and stand? And her dress? Or lack thereof. And please tell me that wasn't a glitter tattoo butterfly on her back. Please. Man, that girl is smokin' hot. And while she looks like something you might see in Penthouse Magazine, she appears to act more like the girl next door. Hmm.
Ok, now let's move on to Paula. What the hell was she wearing on her neck? I think right before she left her house she took a look in the mirror and said, "Hmm, I need to spruce this up a bit, what can I add?" And then she ran to her closet and started grabbing things. First she found a scarf and she wrapped that around her neck a few times. Then she came across a necklace that Mr. T had given her and she placed it on top of the scarf. And finally she weaved in a big, honking artificial flower to bring it all together. The effect, of course, was ridiculous. But, sadly, not surprising. This is what we've come to expect from Paula.
So we're getting down to the final weeks and Ryan is obviously bored, so has decided to make the elimination process as ugly as possible. He tried to get David Cook to break down and tell about his brother, but David was true to himself and his brother and remained vague about his emotional display last night. David is humble and doesn't wear his heart on his sleeve. On the other hand, literally on the other hand, you have Elliott Yamin plugging not only his new CD, but his mother's demise. What the?
And then asking David Archuleta to pick the winners and the losers? Been there, done that a few seasons ago, Ryan. It's mean and ugly and uncalled for and I can't believe that's the best you can come up with.
So it was Kristy Lee Cook's turn to go home. No surprise there. In my blog yesterday I said that I didn't hold her responsible for Michael Johns' departure, per se, but now I'm changing my tune and holding her completely responsible. Had she not had that one good week, Michael Johns might still be with us tonight. So, yes, it's best that Kristy Lee Cook gets off the stage. She was getting a little disrespectful tonight. I heard her use the words "butt" and "sucks". You don't hear David Archuleta using those words....
