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 (Guy’s Night Out)

So after a slightly underwhelming start by the ladies last night, it’s the dawg pound’s turn to take the stage tonight, and since I’m still suffering from a wicked head cold, feeling achy and I’m being fake-sponsored by Nyquil again tonight, I’m going to try make this quick so I get to bed at an early hour. Who am I kidding, I just want to be done by 10, so I can catch the mini-marathon of Cougar Town.

Looking back to last week, here’s how I ranked the 12 guys going into tonight. And it’s official, Michael Lynche is here to stay! Chris Golighty, not so much.

MY TOP 12 GUYS
1. Andrew Garcia
2. Lee Dewyze
3. Michael Lynche
4. Casey James
5. Tyler Grady
6. John Park
7. Alex Lambert
8. Toderick Hall
9. Aaron Kelly
10. Tim Urban
11. Jermaine Sellers
12. Joe Munoz

In the biggest non-surprise of the evening, Andrew Garcia has got the pimp spot (going last). In the biggest actual surprise, Casey James is NOT wearing a blue shirt. Biggest upset since Buster Douglas beat Mike Tyson. And with that it’s go time as Seacrest tells us…”this…is….stop it Simon” (uhhh, ok).

Also, what’s up with Kara this season? She’s being very clingy next to Simon just hanging on his every word and looking to stroke his face like Chris Farley did to that muffin in Tommy Boy. Simon’s kind enough to give us his thoughts on the guys saying they looked nervous during rehearsal and if they forget their lyrics tonight or show their nerves, then their careers are over. Always encouraging words from the Brits. Continue reading
