It's American Idol time, and we're down to the final twelve. I haven't watched one second of this show so far – I couldn't pick David Archuleta out of a police line-up, so we'll see what happens here. I'm not sure I'm ready for two hours of Idol, but that's got to give all twelve contestants over a minute to perform, so that’s good.

So far, this isn't the Idol I remember – Seacrest is rocking the suit, Randy's rocking the sideburns, and Simon's NOT rocking the gray T-shirt. What happened? At least Paula's still incoherent, as always. Seacrest does his annual "look at this fantastic set"-business. Geez. We get it, already.

Tonight is Lennon/McCartney-night, which should be pretty good. Ryan asks Simon "are these songs difficult?", to which Simon replies cattily "well, it depends WHICH song", and as Ryan tries to get Simon to elaborate Randy chimes in with "Duh." Fantastic way to start the show.

Syesha is the first to go and she's super-nervous, getting off to a slow start with "Got to Get Your Into My Life", but she picks it up in the middle. She's got the "cute girl" vibe going but Mrs. JJD is dying to fix her jacket something terrible. IJ is unimpressed, but Simon gives it a rather surprising thumbs up.

NON-IDOL COMMERCIAL RELATED RANT: So, Wendy's HAD the Jalapeno-Cheddar Melt, got rid of it, and now they have the Spicy Baconator, which is the SAME thing EXCEPT for the massive downgrade from cheese-sauce to chipotle sauce. Not an improvement, and even WORSE, the chipotle sauce LOOKS LIKE cheese sauce on the menu. I was so bummed to find out it wasn't cheese-sauce. Mmmmmmm.

I don't know who this next guy is, but he's got the weird Jamie Foxx-hair going, a V-neck sweater, and a wristband. A wristband! Chikezie? (Idol website confirms he's just "Chikezie".) We've also got an early nominee for the most annoying Mom here. We're having a hoe-down with "She's a Woman". I think the wristband has a watch in it, but other than that bizarre fashion choice, this is pretty darn good. No nervousness here. Randy and Paula love it, and Simon looks like he doesn't WANT to, but he's got to go along with the other two. Two thumbs up from Mrs. JJD and me, too. Good LORD, Ryan's freaking out so badly he can't read the numbers.

For the record, IJ says they are oh-for-two so far. Not much please her tonight, I guess.

I'm not sure if Ramiele is cute or if she looks like she should be starring in Me So Asian 43. She gets the funky "on the stairs" start, and then we see the first three rows waving their arms as she sings "All My Life". This is super-boring after crazy-assed Chikezie, but it's not terrible. The fact that she's Filipino is going to keep her around a couple of extra weeks, if history tells us anything. IJ was so impressed she actually left the room. Simon was even less impressed, but says she's "better than that", so there must have been some earlier promise that we didn't see tonight.

If the Counting Crows guy lost 175 lbs. and 15 years he'd be Jason Castro. Mrs. JJD: "Don't let HIM talk again." What's with the guitar? That's never been an Idol thing. This rendition of "If I Fell" is pretty boring and breathy. I'm imagining the oldest Hanson brother. Or Kasey Kahne with dreadlocks. Or that Ace guy from a few seasons ago. IJ openly mocks his singing face. No joke. Good Lord Paula needs to shut up. We've found the guy she wants to bone for this season. *rolls eyes* Another double-barrel of "boring" from Randy and Simon. Finally, I just pictured Rob Schneider in "50 First Dates". Geez. So far, Chikezie is by far the best.

I don't know if this Carly can sing, but she's Irish and has a sweet tattoo on her right arm. I may be in love. She's singing "Come Together", but "changing it up a bit." Hmmmm. IJ gives her first approval of the night. This isn't a very "changed up" version, other than being a bit bluesy. IJ freaks out about her tattoo. LOL. That was really good, but Mrs. JJD says this chick has done an album before. What's up with that? She's way better than the last two performances, and her and – wait for it – Chikezie have been by far the best two of the five. Was that Dirk Nowitzki in the audience? Simon compares her to Kelly Clarkson. Wow.

NON-IDOL COMMERCIAL RELATED OBSERVATION: Horton Hears a Who people singing "Can't Fight This Feeling"? IJ: "That is NOT right." Yup.

Emo-David (I just decided – green fingernail polish? Come ON.) is singing "Eleanor Rigby". Expectations are low – that's not an Idol Song, I don't think. I just figured it out – he looks like Axl Rose with an emo haircut. Mrs. JJD says "Daughtry Part II, but not as good." IJ calls him "annoying". I'm going to have to go with the five year-old on this one, Gene. I mean, it was kind of rocking, and in the hands of a Bo Bice or Daughtry it would have been WAY better. He actually brought it down, I thought, although Randy and Paula are liking it. Mrs. JJD has tired of Paula after half an episode. Simon calls it "brilliant". I must just not have "gotten" it. He'll be around for more episodes, though.

Brooke from Mesa looks like the police shrink from "the Departed," which means I can't decide if she's hot or not. "Let It Be" is the song choice, with Brooke playing the piano. This is pretty good although she's getting distracted by the camera. The big part of the song isn't very big from Brooke. She's the best of the boring bunch so far, but not nearly as good as the more energetic performances tonight. Randy just called himself "the Dawg" – I sure missed that. Simon really liked it. His characterization of the performance is "believable", which, as usual, is a pretty good description. Funny back-and-forth as Brooke had removed her shoes and as Ryan goes to get them the guys imply Ryan might like them for himself. Because he's the gay.

NON-IDOL BUT FOX PROGRAMMING-COMMERCIAL RELATED NOTE: I've got to be honest - I'm can't believe that Chandler Bing would have slept with one of his friend's wives. That would have had to have been Emily then, right? Could his answer BE any more shocking?

Another guy named David – oh hey it's the gay stripper guy – sings "I Saw Her Standing There". Let me put it this way: If you didn't KNOW this guy was a stripper at a gay night club, watching this performance you would not be out of line to think "this guy looks like a stripper or something." Simon: "David - no, no, no." Pretty much. He might be the one to go – he surely is so far.

It would be nice if Amanda would let her personality show in her style. Her performance of "You Can't Do That" is awfully husky – in a good way. She's got kind of a Tina Turner-thing going, as much as a white girl from Indiana can, anyway. And check out those guns. Wow. This was really good, although IJ is less sold and Mrs. JJD is "not sure". I'm impressed but I have a hard time picturing her on, say, Salsa Night. Dang – catfight among the judges. Meow. They are really bitchy with each other tonight.

Michael's got to be, what, 46? IJ: "If he's SO good at the guitar, then why isn't he playing it?" You can tell this guy is older, because I don't think he's messing with his song, "Across the Universe", one bit. Booooring. There hasn't been a lot of gray area tonight. Even Randy – who calls it a little "sleepy" – points out that he didn't change one thing. Paula has seen ten performances so far, a bit shock. Simon actually reads him the riot act a bit.

Kristy Lee Cook is singing "Eight Days a Week" country-style, and she's not joking about that fact. There's no way she'll get voted off as long as she wears those jeans, but this is a train-wreck. Carrie Underwood would have KILLED this song, but KLC is a pale imitation. OMG even Paula didn't like it! That's amazing. Simon pegs it as usual – "like being at a bad country fair." This was a BAD song choice and the concept didn't work at all – they let her turn a classic song into something from "Hee Haw." At least David's "Eleanor Rigby" was well done. I'm surprised they let her go that far with the country-ization. Still, I've got to believe she's going to be back next week.

Shockingly, they have saved David Superstar for the final performance of the night. He's going with "We Can Work It Out". He forgets the third line in the song, then mumbles some of the other lines. And yet, somehow, he's still pretty darn good. He looks JUST like Zac Efron's little dark-haired brother, and I can see why the hype is there because he sounds like him, too, although for his long-term popularity in my house I think that is only good for IJ. Randy kills him for trying to be Stevie Wonder. Paula – blah. Simon calls it "a mess". I think their expectations hurt David here.

Watching the recap, it's got to be Ramiele, David H., and Syesha in the bottom three, with Ramiele going home. I absolutely do not think she'll go, though. Probably David goes home. Or maybe Brooke could be a surprise in the bottom three, since she was fairly non-descript. I've got to think Chikezie, Carly, emo-David, Amanda, Michael, KLC (despite that mess), and David Superstar have no chance to be in the bottom three.

Syesha - I'm not sure why I don't like her, I just kidna don't. Her voice can be good, but this was somewhat boring and yeah I don't dig her much at all. I get the feeling not many people do actually.

Chikezie - Actually JJD, his last name is Ezie I believe. He dropped it cause it was just a bit too much. This was awesome by him. I've liked him since week one, though I know most hated that performance. He has to be great to stick around and he was.

Ramiele - Dangit would someone else pick a song for this girl? Such an amazing voice, and while it was kinda boring it was still beautiful. Could be so much more than what she is.

Jason C. - Hey how about you do a song where it's not just you singing meekly and a guitar? Boring and getting old fast. Plus still freaky looking.

Carly - I like her better every week. She's just got a lot of energy and a good voice. Don't think I want to hear her sing a ballad, but if she can keep picking good songs she's got a shot.

David C. - Maybe it's just because I liked Daughtry so much, but this guy just pales in comparison. Plus his stupid grin and screwing up the lyrics bug me.

Brooke - she looked uncomfortable, but sang it well. Plus she's too darn likable.

David H - Ugh. Please go home soon.

Amanda - sucks

Michael - Yep, still don't get why people like him. I mean it wasn't offensive but it was very boring.

Kristy - The stuff legends are made of.

David A - his worst week by far, but oh well. Still like the kid. We'll see how he rebounds, cause he's not going anywhere.

Should go home: kristy
Will go home: Syesha

No way is Brooke in the bottom three. She was already one of the favorites last week and she had the best performance of this week. After Archuleta's brutal performance, Syesha falling down the charts and Carly singing an awful song there is no way Brooke isn't in the TOP three.

If there is anybody that is talented but boring in the bottom three it's more likely to be Michael. What a snoozefest.

You've also got WAY too many people in the absolutely safe category. Only people absolutely safe are Archuleta, Carly, Brooke and David C. Maybe Castro too. I could see any of the others in the bottom three but I'm going to say the bottom three are...

Ramiele - That song was clearly a dedication to Danny Noriega which I'm sure Danny haters won't like. Plus, it wasn't very good.

David H. - After the whole male stripper thing the only way he is sticking around is if he's great and he wasn't.

Chikezie - I liked Chikezie's performance but he was bottom 2 last week, no way is he suddenly safe. It might have been good enough to keep him around 2 weeks though. Maybe three if he can pass up Kristy Lee.

They didn't actually SAY the last two guys were the two who got the least amount of votes last week, did they? Actually, I don't think they said that either of the two times Chikezie hung around. They're just messing with his head! My man can throw it down!

Ah, finally another person who understands that being Filipino can take you very deep into the competition no matter how crappy your performances are. I mean, I don't even watch the show (when election results are on opposite it), but I know this!

Syeesha - Not bad, but not good either. She's capable of much better. Safe, but definitely slipping from that top tier into that "the week of 7 could be dangerous" sort of area.

Chikeze - The most hit or miss guy on the show. JJD is terribly wrong sleeping on the awesomeness of the wristbandwatch. He's had two weeks where he has had the best performance of the night, but two really not good weeks as well. This week he hit a home run, with a gloriously manic energy propelling him around the stage. I loved the arrangement of "She's a Woman." If there's any justice in the world he's safe.

Ramiele - She's killing me. I think she could break out and win the whole damn thing if she would just let herself go, but sometimes I almost think she is so sad about all her friends leaving she doesn't much care if she sticks. Another week with a middling song choice. It should have had a montage behind it of all her pals from the show who have been voted off.

Jason C. - Last week he seemed better because he picked one of the most unassailable songs ever made. Seriously, go to an open mic night and sing Hallelujah. As long as you hit all the notes, people will love it. "If I Fell" is a rather sleepy song that lives on the harmonies. Without them it's just blah. He'll survive, because there's much worse out there, but he's another one who seems destined to disappear before the stretch run.

Carly - I'm torn on her. She has the best voice, by far, in the competition. But I don't want her to win. She's too good. I feel like no matter what happens she's going to be a star. I would almost rather she place high and lose, and go on to her inevitable career, and let someone else I like get the AI Winner bump. Her best performance so far, and best of the women for the night. Safe as safe can be.

David C. - I think at this point he's my favorite in the competition. I haven't disliked him once yet, he's done the best performance of the year so far with "Hello", and I enjoyed last night's "Eleanor Rigby" with how it built up. I think he might be the dark horse on the guy's side. Most likely safe.

Brooke - I like her. I worry about her every week. Unlike Quezzy I don't fel nearly as safe about her chances. But I really like her. I could see myself buying an album by her. She did a nice job on "Let it Be" and was the only person on there I would have wanted to see doing that song. I think she's safe this week.

David H. - There's too many David's on this show. I think it is about time there was one less. Back to the strip club with you and that terrible rendition of "I Saw Her Standing There." Bottom 3, possibly gone.

Amanda - She's an angry redneck midget. She might have a future as Jamie Noble's new girlfriend on Smackdown. She is the annoying chick who won't give up the mic at Karaoke at some biker bar outside of Terre Haute. I hate the hair, I hate the voice, and I'm ready to see her go. But I fear she lives a few more weeks, only because others are even worse. Bottom 3, but likely safe.

Michael - He looked like he might be a favorite early on, but he's just kind of fallen by the wayside. I didn't mind his version of "Across the Universe" but it just didn't really go anywhere. Might be bottom 3 if Amanda has a base of support. Probably safe though because of...

Kristy - Oh. My. Freaking. God. I was angry at my tv for showing that to me. Yes she's hot. Yes I would much rather see her doing a gogoplata than the Undertaker. If she wants to fight Gina Carano on the new EXC show on CBS I'd watch it. I like her. But that was ungodly. It was terrible. Bottom 3 and probably gone.

David A. - Well, well, well. After being pimped all week as the favorite he comes out and lays a massive egg. Forgetting words, mumbling, missing notes. I think the golden child just fell. He'll be safe this week, but suddenly things like a lot more wide open on the guy's side of things.

Top Three (IMO)
Carly - I didn't think I'd like anyone doing a hugely popular Beatles song, but she nailed it. She said she did that song where her band played regularly every night and you could tell. Awesome.
Chikezie - The guy went from bluegrass-sounding at the beginning to pure rock and both parts worked great. Never thought I'd see something that good from him.
Brooke - The crying was a little much for me, but I guess she seemed sincere enough.

Bottom Three (IMO)
David "The Prodigy" Archuleta - Well, well, well. I seemed to remember being told that this guy was WAY better than everyone and that I didn't like AI if I didn't like this kid. Well, other than forgetting lines, pitch problems, and generally butchering one of my favorite Beatle songs, I LOVE Das Wunderkind. Hope he goes home but his legion of prepubescent female fans will no doubt foil that.
David Hernandez - Same goes for you. That song is SO damn difficult to do.... which is why the Beatles do it. Not you.
Kristy - Wow. Like something out of Hee Haw. She's my pick to go home this week.(EDIT: I completely missed JJD's "Hee Haw" reference. Glad to know I wasn't alone.)

True. But on every TV Guide poll Chikezie finishes dead last and I imagine they have enough voters that the results are at least somewhat telling.

I tried posting this last night, but I couldn't!

It's live from a new set! I don't like it as much as the old set. There's too much business going on with the video wall, and now the band is up in the rafters. I do like the mosh pit they have going up front though.

No celebrity mentor this week, so I guess we're going to go into the video packages cold. This week's topic of conversation? What was your job before you became a television personality?

Syesha Mercado: Singing "Got to Get You Into My Life." She'd like you to know that she was a student and actress before she came onto the show. She's also pared down her hair about thirteen inches since last week. Her performance was middling. Better than Whitney, but kind of meh all around. Not bad, but she doesn't win any points. +/- 0

Chikezie: Singing "She's a Woman." Before Idol he worked at the airport. He also doesn't think people like him as much as Danny Noriega. Apparently, if the Idol thing doesn't work out, he's going to try to get into an "O Brother, Where Art Thou" cover band. Seriously, where was the moonshine jug and the washboard? At least he had fun with it. Beatles are SOOO not his thing. Bonus points for style. +2

Ramiele Malubay: Singing "In My Life." Before this mess, she sang in her car. Well...That's a life experience, anyway. She needs to find more ballady songs than this though, because she's trying to find power notes in the melody, and that's just not working. She was ok, but not the good kind of "ok" like Chikezie, just the bleh ok. Would've been totally worth it if she took a header down the stairs though. The judges tell her she's going home which is dangerous to say this early in the show. -2

Jason Castro: Singing "If I Fell" because it'd be totally cliche to sing "Yesterday." You'll never guess, but Jason is a college student who flunked out of his best class. Duuude. His voice is too thin and reedy for this stage of the competition. He's probably going to survive another week or two, but there's a limit to what songs he can actually do. Simon's dead on when he says that Jason sound like a dude with his guitar at a house party, trying to pick up chicks. Well, Simon didn't say *that* exactly, but he meant it. Paula totally feels a connection with Jason because he's the only one on the show as medicated as she is. -1

Check out Danny Noriega in the crowd! Bring the zazz!

Carly Smithson: Singing "Come Together." Carly gives her grocery list, and then throws potatos in at the end because she's JUST NOT IRISH ENOUGH! In her previous life she tends bar. We already know that, darling, pick something else. Some dude with Warrior hair is sitting with her mom, which is pretty sweet. She's totally jazzed it up, and it works. Her best "competition" performance to date. This is where her "professional background" comes into play, because she's totally comfortable playing up the band and the crowd, which she couldn't really do on the Top 24 stage. +3

David Cook: Singing "Elenor Rigby." David's previous life was spent mostly working on perfecting his emo haircut. This starts out really, really awful, as he's trying to turn the song into, like, a hard rock song, which totally throws it off the rails. But then he gets to the chorus (the "All the lonely people...") and it works. Again, not terrible, but it didn't work well enough to really "work." He seems excited about it though. Simon loves it too, so I guess...I don't get it. +/- 0

Antonella Barba is sitting with Kim Kardasian, which is very zen in how much sucking is all localized in one area.

Brooke White: Singing "Let It Be." She was a nanny, in case you forgot after the trillion times this has been mentioned. She's playing the piano, and...look, it sounds exactly the same as every other song she's done on this show to this point. But what's not working for Jason Castro, is working fantastically for her. It's a weak voice, but she can do the Sarah McLaughlan cover of just about anything, and it'll come out sound pretty good, not great, but pleasant. She'll never win the competition, but of everybody here I think she's got the best potential for career longevity. And now she's crying. I love this girl. +3

David Hernandez: Singing "I Saw Her Standing There." His previous life? He worked at a pizza place and took Music Appreciation 106: The Beatles in college. Nothing else. Seriously. He wasn't a gay stripper. Another thing he's not is a good performer. Be basically runs throught he crowd, pops some mid-90s NSync dance moves, and smiles with all his teeth. Really, really, really awful. See? Don't pick too hard on Ramiele, Simon! -3

Amanda Overmyer: Singing "You Can't Do That." She's a nurse that rides a Harley. You know what would be hillarious? If somebody dubbed her the Biker Nurse. She's never heard a Beatles song, so this should be fun. I realized what it is that bothers me, with the blonde streaks in her hair, she looks like Anna Paquin's ugly cousin. I finally placed that tonight. She's not used to glamour photoshoots! NO WAY! Now, allow me to transcribe Amanda's performance: "WaahaMamannna! Weghuxphliotuuu!" The judges, of course, go nuts for her. Because they hate me. -3

Michael Johns: Singing "Across the Universe." The only thing you need to know about his "Previous Life" segment is that in his childhood photo, he's wearing a "Vegemite T-Shirt." Join us next week when we find out that he runs a Koala Farm and is a great shot with a boomerang. This song got him through some tough times, I guess. Do you suppose he saw the movie? He's hitting all the notes, but it's like there's nothing there. He needs to go back to his pseudo-Bush stuff. The caption says some woman in the audience is his wife, but she looks kind of...old for him. +/- 0

Kristy Lee Cook: Singing "8 Days a Week." She skips over the MMA and horse stuff, which is nice, to tell us that she can't make a decision on her own. Her mom told her to sing this song, and the judges told her to sing a country song, so let's smash them together. It's pretty awful. It's the kind of thing you'd see from, like, the 30th place contestant at the Miss Teen South Carolina talent show. She and Chikezie should totally start a jug band though. That's a show I'd pay to go see. I love that Ryan coerces Paula to say that Kristy's boobs will keep guys voting for her. She's this year's Haley! Her shirt is shining so brightly, you can see it on her face. -3

David Archuletta: Singing "We Can Work it Out." His story is boring, but what's interesting is that he basically cops to knowing nothing about Lennon or McCartney, and just picking "We Can Work It Out" because of the Stevie Wonder cover. The problems with his performance are two-fold, however:

1. The song moves way too fast for his one vocal cord, and he blew up about thirty seconds in

2. He never bothered to learn the words to the song.

So the end result is him gasping through a smily mumbly performance. Paula and Randy are ready to let it be, but Simon isn't so forgiving. The worst performance of the night, and if there were any justice, he'd be Brandon'd, but he'll probably get a slap on the wrist and be on his way to the finals. -4

Predicted Bottom 3

David Hernandez
Ramiele Malubay
Kristy Lee Cook

Out: Kristy Lee Cook.

No, they didn't say they were the lowest vote getters, but they want you to infer that. Since they didn't say it, I would assume that they were NOT the lowest vote getters.

And why would you watch this when you have the premier AI recapper living in your house??

Yeah, see when I first saw Ramiele (without hearing her performance), I planned to vote for her because she was Filipina. Then her Top 24 performance was awesome and it made me feel better for voting for her. But she has not been able to follow it up at all since then (She seems really scared for some reason.) and now I'm not so sure about throwing my votes to her. I think she really wants to take a chance, but (a) she was smacked down by the judges the first time she did (Top 20) and (b) she doesn't want to take a chance like Kristy "took a chance" last night.

I was only going to keep watching for as long as she was on, but I think I'll stick around for as long as Brooke and Chikezie are on, too. They're the only other ones that seem genuinely happy to be there.

Syesha, Kristy, and David H. in the bottom 3, with David H. being eliminated. I agree with Simon, the voters got it spot on. Only David A.'s performance was as bad as these three and at least he has a good past couple of weeks to fall back on. I personally would had rather gotten rid of Syesha (who just bores me now) or Kristy (who was just awful). But while David H. wasn't that bad, IMO, I don't think he was ever that good a candidate for American Idol and I won't be too sad to see him gone.

As long as Brooke is on, she is my absolute pick to win it all. She's beautiful, a friendly personality, and she has proven to be able to make a variety of songs from different genres her own. I'm just worried that she'll end up like Melinda, where despite having the best vocals by far, couldn't make it to the end and dissappeared from the face of the earth shortly afterwards. But hopefully, she'll be in the final two, at least.

I am thinking you were mesmerized by her dark, dead eyes. Snap out of it, man, she was awful. So awful they made her sing it again last night again just for verification!

I think it might have been the greatest practical joke ever played on a contestant, perpetrated by the people who put together the arrangements.

That's what *I* thought, too. I can't believe nobody stood up last week and said "hey, this is NOT working." I didn't think SHE was bad, but there was NO saving that thing.

You know, watching Kristy's performance on Youtube... I didn't think it was all that bad either. The problem was that she needed to slow it down some.

I'd bet that if she was a guy and sang it as a country song, people would be loving it.

Now for the dipshit who doesn't know theBeatles music and didn't even bother to learn one damn song... good riddance. Let him go back to stripping in a gay club.

In my own defense, I am completely and entirely unfamiliar with almost everything the Beatles have ever done, and have no attachments to the originals. I mean, granted, if it was really that awful, it's not really an excuse, but I still didn't think it was that bad.

A Thursday catch up for we saps in the UK what follow AI, but why must we put it up against BOTH my soccer teams playing in Europe? The schedulers hate me, but this is why we have recording devices I guess.

I liked Chikezie a lot, but his attire had a 'Carlton from the Fresh Prince' vibe that was disarming. Ramiele remains cute, but bores me now. And that Danny kid she was basically dedicating her performance to annoyed me when he was in so she loses points for that.

Carly was impressive, but she's probably a bit too polished for her own good so may miss out on votes because of it. David H was cringeworthy, but in my partially inebriated state quite funny. Not sure that's what he was going for.

David C was iffy. I like what he tries to do with the songs (a rocky version of Lionel Ritchie last week) but the execution ain't great.

David A and the Kristy were all sorts of sucky.

Jason edged the weekly battle for title of Most Medicated, with Paula unusually intelligible (though it's all relative).

So yeah, Chikezie would be me new favourite in spite of the dodgy pullover. I retain a soft spot for Ramiele, but good lord does she need to lighten up and stop pining for Danny. He sucked, he's gone, GETOVERIT!
