Well, so TiVo is a great invention, however, it has no answer to the rain. I missed all of the show except for Chris' performance.

I hope I didn't miss much, but I'm gonna say that Phil, Chris, and Lakisha end up bottom 3, and that Lakisha goes home.

This is I believe, the first episode of Idol I've missed since I've started watching, and hope someone has a recap to follow.

See ya next week!

We got a ton of footage of Ryan, Simon and Randy in scary looking places with people in need. Didn't remember seeing much of Paula on those trips. Hmmm.

Chris: "If I Could Change The World" by Eric Clapton - The judges all loved this but personally it sucked balls. He had on this stupid jacket that had what looked like part of a tie coming out of the side. Ricockulus. Didn't hit his notes right, and tried yet again to dance despite not once this season displaying any sense of rhythm.

Melinda: “There Will Come A Day” by Faith Hill - Not a song I'm familiar with. Judges again loved it. She was pretty good, but she always is so to me it was a little been there done that-ish.

Blake Lewis "Imagine" by John Lennon - Another dude with a butt ugly jacket. Randy said it was kinda boring, Paula half agreed but said he sang it with emotion or sincerity or something, Simon repeated Paula. I thought this would be horrible but it wasn't bad. Very simple, but not bad at all.

Lakisha - "I Believe" by Fantasia - Ok this bitch just has zero clue. Seriously, what the fuck? Is she really this stupid and/or arrogant? So yeah this sucked as you might expect. She started yelling again and can't pronounce words fully. Randy said it wasn't her best, Paula said she should never have tried a Fantasia song(likening it to Mariah and Whitney...wtf?), and Simon got cut off telling her she was screaming again.

Phil: "The Change" by Garth Brooks - Judges all liked it, but Simon told him to go for more country sounding songs if he sticks around. I wasn't too into this. Being a big Garth guy, I thought his mix of the song was done incredibly poorly. I realize he doesnt' have much time but it could have been arranged much better. His singing is what it is. Ok, but not great.

Jordin: "You'll Never Walk Alone" from the musical "Carousel" - Damn girl. Randy called it maybe the best vocal from any person on any season of AI. Paula loved it and Simon told her she could have a hit record with it. Yeah, it really was that good.

Let's go with Chris, Lakisha and Phil on the bottom with Lakisha going home, though I'm interested to see if having double the call in time and two numbers for each person alters things at all.

I understand the need for showing what the charity project is about but it made me uncomfortable watching those scenes. Perhaps that was the point. Anyways, I was planning to vote whether or not they showed me those awful scenes.

Chris - I am obviously incompetent when it comes to judging singing talent. I thought he puked all over this song but the judges loved it. The praise for this kid continues to amaze me.

Melinda - Again, a fantastic vocal and performance. Despite that, she may not have the look to keep Jordin from winning this thing.

Blake - I love this guy, but he keeps picking the wrong songs, in my opinion. Lennon's distinctive voice is what makes "Imagine" such a great song to me and Blake just doesn't have that. Well sung, just made the song seem not as special.

Lakisha - She seems to want to make it more performance than vocal and it was difficult to listen to.

Phil - I don't know Garth, but I though Phil did well for the second week in a row.

Jordin - I thought it was pitchy, but the person i was watching it with said "It's supposed to be pitchy." ??? Whatever.

I think the bottom three are Blake, Lakisha and Phil. Phil won't seem to die, so I'll pick Lakisha as this week's victim.

I missed Chris, but from the clip I was not very impressed with his performance. I suspect this week he goes bottom 3.

Melinda is Melinda. At this point the only real risk is that she's so good people get tired of her being good and begin to look for something else just because they've grown so used to her.

Blake gives an extremely boring performance of "Imagine." Now, I know that's not an easy song to do much with, as John Lennon's voice was unique sounding and the song tailored to that, but still. I just didn't see the sincerity the judges were feeling. To me it felt like someone picking the easiest choice for an "inspirational song" and just coasting through it.

Lakisha has a lisp. I knew something was bothering me this whole time about her, and it finally hit me. When I heard the line "Cauth anything ith pothible" is when I knew why I just wasn't feeling it. Well that and the shouting in place of projecting. She's bottom 3, probably bottom 2, and might be going home.

I like Phil. I love Garth Brooks. I hated the first half of this. If you listen to the original, even though Garth is understated and quiet, the voice is still full. Phil was thin sounding in the first half. Once the song picked up he seemed to do much better. Likely Bottom 3 because that seems to be his spiritual home. If was going to do a Garth song, he might have been better off doing a different choice. "We Shall Be Free", "The Dance", or possibly even "Standing Outside the Fire" would have been better for his voice and been able to fit the theme of the show.

Jordin is making things interesting. I still suspect one of the boy band guys will be in the final two against Melinda, but Jordin is going to make it difficult to vote her out.

I think the most interesting thing at this point is that to even attempt to project an order for the final six of when they might go home is impossible. Hell, it's impossible to even guess a Last Longer for any two people except Melinda. My personal guess at this point for order of elimination:
Lakisha
Phil
Chris
Jordin
Blake
Melinda (winner)

I think Jordin is going to win this thing. Yup.


If you believe dialidol, she's the only safe one tonight. All the others are within shouting distance of each other.


I think Chris might be the one going home, as his whiny ass vocals are getting on my nerves.

Another point mentioned a couple of other times and mentioned by numerous people in my office - who picks the wardrobes for these people? Do they not have mirrors in the dressing rooms? Damn.

I agree. Jordin is gaining on Melinda fast as far as singing performance and in my opinion is miles ahead of Melinda in personality.

The "we're not voting anyone off" was pretty evident from the start, I thought. At least the votes carry over to next week.

Sanjaya got more face time than any of the Idols still on the show. It's as if he never left.

Kudos for the good that will come out of this... but the whole event was a real gong show. No real flow, but given the purpose, I suppose there doesn't HAVE to be any semblance of organization for one week.

Yeah it was really strange to see the "Elvis" and Celine performance because Sanjaya was out there in all white with the rest. My guess is they taped it before his elimination happened, but I fast forwarded through a lot so maybe they explained it somewhere.
