I really like Tuesday nights because I get to watch the performances on American Idol and see the results of Dancing with the Stars. On Stars this week, Priscilla went home, like I thought she should, so all's right there.
However, my world was crushed a little last week when I got word that Michael Johns had been sent home. He's been my #1 fav since day one, and I wasn't even home to see him leave. I had two friends e-mail me and fill me in. Can I just say, if I'd been home, he wouldn't have left. Yes, I am that powerful.
Now, for tonight.
David Archuletta definitely won some hearts out there. I think he also got a sympathy boost when Ryan commented that he's often so nervous on performance day, he can't eat. As if the kid wasn't cute enough already, they had to go and make us feel sorry for him.
I enjoyed Carly tonight, even though the judges didn't. I thought her performance was gutsy and awesome.
David Cook did a really good job. I personally didn't think it was as awesome as the judges did, but it was good.
I also enjoyed Syesha's performance, even though I was unfamiliar with the song and wasn't sure if it was really going how it should -- it was one of those songs with lots of sharps and flats and unexpected notes.
Brooke was terrified tonight. The close-ups of her showed that she was shaking. I enjoyed her rendition, though.
Kristy Lee still just bugs me. I don't know why. I haven't stopped to analyze it. But she does. She did a tolerable job tonight, but that's as far as it went for me.
Jason also did a decent job, but I didn't agree with the judges. They were all over it, but I didn't think it was his best.
So, top to bottom, that's how I personally enjoyed the evening. Now, on to my predictions.
I think Carly, Kristy Lee and Brooke are the bottom three, and Brooke is going home.
After the results:
Wow! I didn't think Kristy Lee was going home. I mean, I was hoping, but I've been hoping for a long time now. I did get it right that Brooke and Kristy Lee would be in the bottom three, but I didn't see tonight's result coming at all. It's all good. I'm glad Brooke has a chance to redeem herself and I really hope she can start pulling it out of the fire. I like that girl.
