Here's the Tristi Recap:
Mario and Karina are goners on Dancing with the Stars, and I found I didn't care much. I really got involved with Cristian and Cheryl last night -- he couldn't use his arm so they did all their dances using his other arm, and that extra attention to detail really paid off for them. He did some incredible lifts with that one arm, and they were the leaders ending the round. Tonight when they were proclaimed safe, I really cheered -- that kind of dedication and determination deserve to be rewarded.
American Idol was also tonight, and I spent my time flipping back and forth between the channels. Shame on them to put the two shows across from each other tonight! Here's my thoughts:
I didn't think David Cook did a bad job with "Hungry like a Wolf." Simon really got on his case, but I enjoyed the performance. I did like his second one better, but I don't think he deserved the criticism he got for "Wolf."
You know, David Archuletta's song choice perplexes me. Tonight he did "Stand by Me" and "Love Me Tender," and when he started both of them, I thought, "Oh, no, this is going to be terrible." Yet, both times, I was really surprised at how he changed it up just enough to keep it interesting. It was a good night for him.
Syesha did a good job. I wasn't blown away, but it was a good job.
Will someone please vote Jason off? Please? I'm begging you. It was sad. I like the kid but he should be singing pleasant little happy songs at his friends' houses while they lounge around chatting. He's not an American Idol. I would really appreciate it if y'all could please vote. him. off. I will say this in his defense, though -- Simon really got on his case and I thought it was a bit over the top. Sure, he didn't do a good job, but he didn't deserve that kind of tongue-lashing.
I don't know if Jason leaving is a prediction or a wish. I'll let you decide. But he's my guess to go.
