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

It can’t be a good sign that I’m actually dreading watching the guys sing tonight.  Unfortunately for Idol, they suffer from the curse of 3.   The worst seasons of Idol have always been when the male talent pool is weak which coincidentally has been multiples of three.  Season 3 had George Huff, John Stevens, Matt Rodgers and Jon Peter Lewis as the final guys in the 12.  Now all four of them can be seen nightly at the Marriott off Route 17 in Paramus, New Jersey.  Season 6 gave us Blake Lewis, Chris Richardson, Phil Stacey, Chris Sligh, Brandon Rogers and lest we forget, the one they call Sanjaya!!

So here we are in Season 9 and after two weeks the guys have been very underwhelming.  Even early front-runner Andrew Garcia is evoking shades of some sort of combination of overrated sports busts, Kwame Brown, Todd Van Poppell and Ryan Leaf.  The best male singer to date, Lee Dewyze might not even crack the Top 5 overall when you factor in the girls this year.

But as long as none of the guys sing something as dreary as Paige Miles’ performance last night, I’m going to remain optimistic and hope for the best, even if I am expecting the worst.

Here’s how I have the guys ranked…

MALE POWER RANKINGS (thru last week)
1. Lee Dewyze
2. Andrew Garcia
3. Casey James
4. Alex Lambert
5. Michael Lynche
6. Toderick Hall
7. Aaron Kelly
8. Tim Urban

Once again, everything is rushed tonight trying to cram 8 guys into one hour. Sounds like a day in the life of Jenna Jameson. Zing! Continue reading

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
