    • SNL just blew the opening Charlie Sheen skit. Going to bed instead of watching this unfunny show. #winning 9 years ago
    • Best idea I've heard so far this week - have Charlie Sheen host next year's Oscars. Highest ratings ever! 9 years ago
    • I still can't believe that Kathryn Bigelow directed Point Break. I am an EFF-BEE-EYE agent. #oscars 9 years ago

This…Is American Idol…Blog (Top 12 Perform)

After week’s of auditions, both good and bad, and dragging out the Hollywood Round for as long as humanly possible, and then after three more weeks of voting, we’re finally set with our 2010 Top 12 American Idol contestants.

Get ready to see on the big stage tonight, Lilly Scott, Toderick Hall, Alex Lambert and Katelyn Epperly! Oh wait, nevermind, they somehow didn’t make it. Instead, get ready to see Paige Miles, Lacey Brown, Tim Urban and Aaron Kelly. Hooray! For the fantasy sports fans out there, this would be the equivalent of trading Larry Fitzgerald, Adrian Peterson, Chad OchoCinco and Pierre Thomas for Paige Miles, Lacey Brown, Tim Urban and Aaron Kelly. It would kill fantasy team. (Somehow I bet my buddy Eric Tarr is actually trying to propose that deal to someone right now as we speak).

Back to the big show, it’s Rolling Stones night on Idol, and thru all the auditions and all the rounds, here’s how I have the Top 12 ranked as well as my wish list of what I’d like them to sing tonight….

AMERICAN IDOL TOP 12 (thru last week’s performances)
1. Crystal Bowersox (“Gimme Shelter”)
2. Siobhan Magnus (“Paint It Black”)
3. Lee Dewyze (“Beast of Burden”)
4. Michael Lynche (“Brown Sugar”)
5. Katie Stevens (“Honky Tonk Woman”)
6. Didi Benami (“You Can’t Always Get What You Want”)
7. Andrew Garcia (“Wild Horses”)
8. Casey James (“Tumbling Dice”)
9-12. Lacey Brown, Paige Miles, Tim Urban, Aaron Kelly (“I’d rather they not sing anything please”)

I’m giddy, here we go…..

This…Is American Idol…Blog (Top 8 Girls Perform)

Just one more performance for the ladies is standing between tonight and making the overall Top 12.  Hopefully none of these ladies tonight will suffer the fate of last week’s eliminated contestants who I liked to call “Terrible Creed Singer” girl and “Actually Sings Worse Than Miley Cyrus Even Though I Didn’t Think It Was Humanly Possible To Do So” girl.

I do feel pretty confident before even hearing anyone perform tonight that this will be the end of the line for Lacey Brown and/or Paige Miles, but who else will join them?  I dunno, but that’s why I’m watching to find out.

Here’s how I have the remaining 8 ladies ranked thru last week…

MY NEW FEMALE POWER RANKINGS (last week’s ranking in parenthesis)
1. Crystal Bowersox
2. Siobhan Magnus
3. Katie Stevens
4. Lily Scott
5. Didi Benami
6. Katelyn Epperly
7. Paige Miles
8. Lacey Brown

Eight performances, one hour, so it’s gonna be rushed tonight…but thankfully there’s enough time to have Ellen sit on Simon’s lap.  There’s so many things wrong with that.  Number one is that Simon doesn’t like white women. Continue reading

This…Is American Idol…Blog (Top 10 Girls – for real tonight)

Very very long day…so no fancy pants intro tonight, except I’ll mention that my favorite Crystal Bowersox has overcome her diabetes complication and is ready to perform tonight. She might not be able to eat caramel, but she can sing circles around the rest of the girls.

10 words or less recap rules are in effect tonight.

Here’s how I have the final 10 girls ranked thru last week.

MY FEMALE POWER RANKINGS (thru last week)
1. Crystal Bowersox
2. Didi Benami
3. Katie Stevens
4. Katelyn Epperly
5. Siobhan Magnus
6. Lily Scott
7. Michelle Delamor
8. Haeley Vaughn
9. Paige Miles
10. Lacey Brown

Sadly, no Janell Wheeler or Ashley Rodriguez anymore. Janell, if you’re reading this…I miss you, call me!

Oooh, they’re saving the best for first, let’s get this going…

Crystal Bowersox – phenomenal! will download that performance from iTunes. glad she’s back!

Haeley Vaughn – can’t believe I’d rather listen to Miley Cyrus sing this.
GRADE: D-

Lacey Brown – better than last week, but such a copycat performance.
GRADE: C+

Steiny has a better 10 words – “Sixpence will get none the richer after that performance”
STEINY’S GRADE: D+

Katie Stevens – judges were way too harsh and incorrect in their criticism
GRADE: B-

Didi Benami – see Katie Stevens, I must be hearing something different tonight
GRADE: B-

Michelle Delamor – see Haeley Vaughn, replace “Miley Cyrus” with Creed. God awful!
GRADE: D-

Sorry, after listening to Kara and Simon give her praise, this gets more than 10 words. WTF?!?! Did they divvy up Paula’s medication between them? Seriously, what are they listening to???

Lily Scott – oh boy, that was sneakily good. She’s gaining momentum.
GRADE: B+

Katelyn Epperly – good song, but performed wayyyyyyyy too slow, could’ve been better.

GRADE: B-

Siobhan Magnus – that WAS dope, Randy. Didn’t want it to end. Nice mohawk! (yes, 11 words, i cheated).
GRADE: A-

Girls are sooooooooooooo much better than the guys. Can we just make it 8 girls and 4 guys instead of this 6 and 6 b.s.?
MY BOTTOM THREE – Haeley Vaughn, Michelle Delamor and Lacey Brown
MY PREDICTION FOR AMERICA’S BOTTOM THREE – Haeley Vaughn, Didi Benami and Michelle Delamor
