American Idol Recap – Top 100

After two-hours of group performances last night filled with drama, tension, tears and probably a mild case of diarrhea for some of these contestants, we’re left with 100 hopefuls hoping to become one of the 50 hopefuls to make it to next week, who will then become one of the 24 hopefuls to make it to the preliminary voting rounds to become one of 12 hopefuls to make it to the Kodak Theater to become one of 10 hopefuls to make the Idol summer tour to become one of 3 hopefuls to get to go home and celebrate with their family and friends to then maybe become an average-record selling Idol winner.  In other words, we’ll still mixing the Idol batter and this cake has yet to bake, but damn if it ain’t fun to lick the batter (unless it involves Tiffany Rios, shudder).

Last night saw one of my hopefuls, Rob Bolin, crack under the pressure and be sent home, so here’s my new Top 10 after Group Week.

CURRENT TOP TEN (Previous ranking in parenthesis)
1. Lauren Alaina (1)
2. Stefano Langone (2)
3. Deandre Brackensick (NR)
4. Casey Abrams (4)
5. Pia Toscano (NR)

7. Brett Loewenstern (10)
8. Clint Jun Gamboa (NR)
9. Denise Jackson (NR)
10. Matthew Nuss (NR)

American Idol Recap – Group Week

Fresh off a solid Hollywood round week last Thursday, Idol is back tonight for what might be my most favorite episode each season…the dreaded Group Week. Those unfamiliar, just think back to when you were in school and the teacher gave you a group assignment and made you pick your own groups. Sometimes you’re in a group where all of you gel and deliver an outstanding performance on the task at hand, and then other times, you’re stuck in an awkward mish-mash group with competing personalities, or people who don’t want to do any work and get all the credit, or someone that actually tries hard but is the obvious weak link on your team and you and the other members of your team secretly plot to have that person framed for murder and deported to Siberia. Not like I was ever a part of that…

Two hours tonight of drama, 168 contestants left from the first cuts of Hollywood Week, so let’s get right to it. Here’s my current Top 10 of those who I know made it thru from last week.

MY CURRENT TOP TEN (last week’s rankings in parenthesis)
1. Lauren Alaina (1)
2. Stefano Langone (2)
3. Rob Bolin (8)
4. Casey Abrams (3)
5. Chris Medina (5)
6. Robbie Rosen (6)
7. Jackie Wilson (4)
8. Thia Megia (NR)
9. Caleb Johnson (7)
10. Brett Loewenstern (9)

American Idol Recap – Austin

Any chance FOX would be kind enough to only give us one hour of Idol tonight so I can watch the Maryland/Duke game in full?  Nope, didn’t think so.  Hopefully I don’t get confused what I’m writing about while flipping between the two.  The judges, Jennifer Lopez and Coach K were really tough on the contestants tonight.  I can’t believe they didn’t put Jordan Williams thru to Hollywood, he’s got the voice and rebounding skills to be a superstar.

Whoa, everything’s coming up Millhouse tonight, Idol’s only one hour…hooray!  So it’s a mostly 10 words or less recap (especially for the terrible singers) followed by me swearing at the TV for the basketball game (for which there won’t be a blog about, since there’s a likelihood I toss my laptop into the fire by then).

We’re live coming from Austin tonight (that’s Austin not Boston, Tom Green – btw, where the hell is Tom Green now, should we be concerned?).  We get a black screen intro saying Idol apologizes for Steven Tyler’s outlandish behavior last week and promises that it won’t happen again…but guess what happens???  Yep, more outlandish behavior, who woulda thunk it.  On a side note, I’d like to apologize for my outlandish behavior last week.  True story, a relative of one of the failed contestants that I might have poked fun of last week, took offense to my comments, for that I’d like to say I’m sorry…I’m sorry you’re such a stupidhead.  I’ve got a very high maturity level.

Oh good, a Marc Anthony sighting…although he looked more like Skeletor in HD

*Corey Levoy – didn’t find his sister until he was 21 even though she lived right down the road.  hopefully he’ll find his singing voice some day soon.  Judges liked him for some reason, I guess sounding like a muppet gets you a ticket to Hollywood.  Maggie says “he’s got a big butt”  Good insight all around.
