American Idol, Top 9

Dear Ryan, 

I don't know what they're paying you, but I will double it (in monopoly money) if you will just put the emphasis on Idol.  Just this once?

Best Regards,
The Banker

Anoop - Caught Up

Heck yeah!  I love me some Usher.  Eek.  Is it me or is he butchering it?  Solid ending, but uh - Anoop.  It's figure.  Not figur.   Oi.  That's annoying.

Holy necklace, Pauler.  Wowie.  Her eyes are looking rough.  I agree wholeheartedly with Simon, sans the headache.

Oh, Ryan - please do not encourage the contestants to talk back to the judges.  Me no likey.

Does anyone else think Fox has stooped to an all new low with this Osborne's show?  Please. Make. It. Stop.

Megan -  I missed the title.  

She's less than a minute into it, and I already disagree with her prediction that the judges are going to "get her".  I certainly don't.    Oh, Megan Megan Megan.

I think the person in the audience meant Megan was the broken record.  Not Kara.  Which, PS - Kara - please accept my humble apology for misspelling your name, oh - about a dozen times in last week's recap.  Will you pretty please forgive me?  Thanks, girl.

Boring, indulgent, monotonous.  Yep, yep and yep.  Simon, we are on the same page tonight, my brotha.

[Totally unrelated, but any Heroes fans out there?  I now see why Niki/Tracey was offed once and for all.  Looks like she took her pretty self to the big screen.  With Beyonce.  Very cool.]

Danny - What Hurts The Most

Dude.  I freaking love this song.  Love. It.  I know he's going to kill it.  Please kill it, Danny. Okay, given his story, how on EARTH is he able to do this without blubbering his fool head off, like I'm trying not to do?  And he nails it. He just sang his guts out.  MAD PROPS, Danny boy.  Dan, Dan the I Got Mad Crazy Singing Skillz Man.

They let Pauler drive?  Scary.

Kara - you nailed it, sister.  He shared his soul with us.  It worked for me.  I remember again why I love him so so much.

Allison - Don't Speak

Another favorite song.  Whew!  Look at that hair.  That would make Gwen proud.  The first verse is blowing me away.  Hmmm...  The ending was a bit anti-climactic for me.  Loved the beginning though. 

Why is no one getting her No Doubt look?  

Oh Simon, it's not nice to laugh when Pauler slurs her words.

Scott - Just The Way You Are

Oh goody, he's singing a song that a boy should sing.  Just him and the piano?  This might be a good move.  I don't mean to be unkind, but is that the best they can do with his hair?  I think they should experiment with the straightener.  Anyone else?    It's very old school Tom Hanks the way it is now.  Okay, I'm done.  The performance?  Eh.  I'm just not in love.  I may have liked it better if his hair had been straight.  Silly, but I think it's true. He didn't give a 3 minute speech, so I'll give him bonus points for that.

Matt - You Found Me

Rough start?  I don't know the song.  That's never good.  Hmm...  I'm not loving it.  And not because I don't know it.  I don't think he's doing too excellent of a job.  I hope the judges (and especially America) disagrees.  I really like him a lot and I want him to stick around for a while. As always - Kara eloquently sums it up.  Agreed.

Oh. Paul. Er. Don. 't St. Op. In the mid. dle. Of your wor. ds.  Sheesh. Spit it out!

Lil - I surrender

Can she pull off Celine?  We shall see.  Love the hair! She looks beautiful.  I'm not loving this performance either.  Woah - things are about to change, me thinks.  Maybe not.  I think her pitch is off.  That's not good.  Hmmm...  I never know if I'm hearing it right.  What will the judges say?  I agree - strange song choice.  Man - she looks gorgeous.  I'm sure Pauler will touch on that.  You can sing heaven's above?  Alrighty.  And I can't believe she didn't say word one about how she looks.

Oh, my mercy - look at the sweet baby hugging Randy!  Precious!!

Adam - Play That Funky Music

The Elvis hair is back.  Eek with the dancing, Adam.  I wonder if that hurts his throat?  Not the dancing.  Wow - Paula just channeled the news lady with that quick and concise description.  I'm impressed.  To back up a bit, I didn't love it, but the boy can sing.  I get that a lot of people don't like him, but you can't say it's because he can't sing.  Well, I guess you could say it, but I might have to flick you on the forehead.

Kris - Ain't No Sunshine

Okay - I think I'm finally seeing what everyone else has been seeing all along.  Wow.  That was HAWT.  Is he the closer?  Yay for Kara and her counting redemption.  Woot woot!

Is anyone else thinking that this show could have been so much better?  They could choose ANY POPULAR SONG from iTunes, and this is the best they could come up with?  I don't get it.

Alright - I gotta say Danny and Kris were my top faves tonight.  Sorry Matt and Adam, you just didn't bring it in my book.  

My bottom three prediction - Anoop, Megan (if there's any justice in the world) and Scott. Though after last week, I'd say anything can happen.

Thanks for tuning in.  For more Idol recaps make sure to check in at BooMama's place.  If it's a giggle you're after, she will not disappoint.


  1. THANK YOU! Someone else disgusted by The Osbornes commercials!!! I won't even let my child in the room when they're on for fear of those commercials...very classy!

  2. GREAT POST! Completely agree about that Osbornes show - eeww! Danny and Kris were the best tonight, and PLEASE let Megan go home tomorrow!

  3. My gosh! It's like you read all my notes and wrote the same post I did!

    *Cue Twilight Zone theme song*

  4. Ha!!!! Funny! Agree on the commercials too....I let my son stay up til 9 to watch the singing and felt like I had to close his eyes when that crap comes on for heavens sake. UGH!
    Yeah, I wasn't like thrilled with the song choices, good grief...there had to be better downloads than those! LOVED Danny and Kris....they are my boys. ;) Scott, Megan or Lil could go home now. Thankyousomuch. And yeah, don't want Adam to win but he's good and quite entertaining!! :) Have a great day!!

  5. Thanks for saying hi on my blog! I want to dislike Adam, I think because of the way he looks (Elvis with make-up), but he is a great singer.

  6. Thanks for your comment. I loved your recap - both ysterical and nearly spot on. I'll have to keep up with you - I love making new bloggy friends.

  7. I love your recaps - you have me rolling every time.

    My hubby said almost the same thing about Pauler too - her eyes were looking a little funky/tired/old.

    The Osborne show - awful. I can't wait for that one to be cancelled.

    So after watching tonights results - you were almost spot on with your predictions!
