Yeah, it's Tuesday again. Yeah, you know what that means.
First off, Shannon and Derek are gonners on Dancing with the Stars. I was so glad Cristian wasn't voted off -- it wasn't his fault he got hurt, and I think he deserves to keep going. I'm also glad to see that Marissa is doing so well. As a woman of size, I'm delighted to see someone whose not exactly rail-thin have the chance to show how beautiful and talented and yes, sexy, she is.
On to American Idol -- it was simply too weird for words tonight. I just don't know. Having Neil Diamond for a mentor was kind of strange -- how many people can really sing Neil Diamond songs? Besides Neil, of course. I wasn't blown away by anyone. I thought David Cook did well, David Archuletta did okay, and everyone else was just there. I found it really hard to even care tonight. That might be more a reflection on the fact that I've been in a really bad mood all day, but I think it's more a reflection of the fact that there wasn't a lot to care about. I'll let Rob back me up or disagree with me on that one.
So, my predictions:
David Cook, safe.
David Archuletta, safe.
If they do a bottom three, it'll be Jason, Brooke and Syesha.
If they do a bottom two, it'll be Syesha and Jason.
Syesha is going home.
I base this on the fact that Brooke seems to have a strong fan base. She's really made some mistakes over the last few weeks, and yet she's still with us. Jason seems to have cornered the young teenage girl demographic, but he wasn't really himself tonight. So that puts him in danger. But I don't think Syesha has the fan base Brooke and Jason have. So, there's my prediction. For whatever it's worth. I haven't done too well with this game so far, but Rob wanted me to play, so . . . I'm playing. (Really, when Rob does his puppy-dog eyes thing, you just can't say no.)
Tonight was Pack Meeting, and not only did my son overcome his shyness to do the Pledge and to bring in the color guard, he got his Bear badge. My dad came over for the presentation and got to hand him the badge. It was awesome. What can I say?
After the American Idol results:
I'm sad to see Brooke go. She brought a lot of genuineness to the show, and I'm going to miss her. And I'm sad that I was wrong. That said, Rob was wrong too, so that sort of takes the sting out.
