Anthony, Bo, Carrie and Vonzell brought it tonight.

Scott and Connie anything but. They just lacked in anything compared to the other 4.

Connie really, really sucked. He's lucky Scott sucked worse. I could easily see the bottom three being Carrie, Scott, and Connie this week, but it'll probably be Carrie, Scott, and Anthony.

What song was that that Bo sang? He rocked tonight.

That was one of Carrie's weakest performances so far - a song she should have hit out of the park, she dribbled for an infield single.

Bo looked ridiculous in his shades and dashiki but he did bring it

Connie's brother was scarier looking than Connie's singing last night - that was just a dreadful attempt at being a "rocker" - good thing for Connie that teenage girls love to run up their text message bills

Scott's parents almost made me throw up in my mouth. He delivered the clunker that should send him home.

My Bottom 3 - Carrie, Connie & Scott

America's Bottom 3 - Carrie, Anthony & Scott - with hopefully Scott going home - finally

I don't think that Carrie's performance was anything outstanding, but I don't think there is any reason to panic (yet).

The beginning of Vonzell's and Scott's performances made me glad that I taped it last night.

I was highly unipmressed with Anthony last night as well.

Constantine should be given credit for tring to sing "How You Remind Me" but his voice is not near gravely enough to make it sound anything close to right.

My bottomg 3- Scott, Vonzell, and Constantine

America's bottom 3- Scott, Vonzell, and Anthony, and again praying that Scott finally gets sent out.

The mix seemed really messed up, too. The fiddle and the guitar seemed really loud and her voice seemed really flat. Not so good.

My wife said the same thing. His brother was really, really creepy. And his mother seemed really, really old.

That is my bottom three as well. As much as I don't care for Anthony and really don't care for Celine Dion, I thought he did well with that song. Vonzell was good. Bo was good. They should be safe.

I got some sleep last night instead of watching AmIdol, so I did a quick FUHFUHWID through the show (Thank you TiVo!). BO~! was awesome again. Loved the song choice, it was a perfect match with his lead-in story. Carrie's performance didn't seem horrible, but again, I only watched the first 15 seconds of it to see what she was singing. Vonzell's performance was technically sound, but to me just seemed devoid of any feeling at all . . . like a robot singing. However, with this current look she didn't look very Horsefaced at all. Which leads me to the Bottom 3:

Constantine -- Week after week I praise Connie for his song choices to Mrs. Hogie. This week? Ugh. His voice seemed off-key for the song the entire time. Just a horrible performance -- enough to get him into the bottom 3.

Anthony -- I dunno. I guess the performance was okay (again, what little I heard of it), but his time has come. But not this week, because the man going home is . . .

Killa -- Man. I just don't think his voice could hold out for a full tour -- he sounded really really bad last night. The song choice wasn't great, but hey, I'm not gonna hold it against him if he's trying to sing a song about his parents. However, we can all hope that tonight Simon berates him just a little too much, and Killa's finally goan SNAP! GO OFF ON SUM FOLKS! CUT EM KILLA! CUT EM!

HERE I AM!

I liked how they introduced the "Millennium"-theme by asking Sergei what he was doing then: "I was a freshman in high school", followed by asking Bo, whose answer of "I was in Nashville playing a gig with my band" couldn't have made Sergei more uncomfortable. I thought this would be an easy week for them to pick songs, but I think it actually did the opposite because they were overloaded with choices.

Carrie startes us off, singing "When God Fearin' Women Get the Blues". Thanks to PizzaMan for getting my hopes up on the hotness, but she just looked like pretty much every other week. I didn't think this was good at all, but Mrs. JJD said she liked it, and since she's the huge Martina-fan I'll defer to her. Randy says she seemed a note below where the song was supposed to be, and I say "A-HA!", as that's what I was thinking but unable to articulate properly. It was very weird, and I think Carrie is the one out of the final six who gets hurt by the REALLY LOUD BAND.

Bo's up next with "I Don't Wanna Be", which is constantly played by the XM stations in the 20s and has kind of grown on me as a song. As mentioned, he looked kind of silly, but I thought he sounded great.

Vonzell follows Bo with a nice rendition of "I Turn to You". Plus, she broke boards in the intro video, which was COOL. I thought this was a nice change from how the singers normally show off, as usually they go for the big notes, and Vonzell showed off hitting soft, higher notes tonight. I honestly think she could've beaten Ruben and Fantasia (though I REALLY hated Fantasia, so that's probably just the bias talking), but she probably won't win this year. She's really good, though.

Heading into the break, Ryan says with enthusiasm "coming up next, Anthony Fedorov takes on Celine Dion!", and I immediately bust out laughing and Mrs. JJD starts swearing at the TV. "I'd rather you just keep it on the Sonics game than watch that." *snicker*

Coming back from the break, Heather Locklear's daughter embarrasses her Mom with a lack of timing and inability to rise to the moment of Ryan's interview. High comedy. Sergei actually does a pretty good job with the song "I Surrender", which must be one (the only one?) of Celine's hits that didn't get massive overplay on the radio, as I'm sure I've never heard it before. Even Mrs. JJD says it's not horrible, and I think the fact that I wouldn't have known it was a Celine-song if Ryan hadn't told me beforehand speaks well to Sergei's performance. He's probably the only one left with the skills to attempt a Celine-song, even if he doesn't always uses them well enough. Negative points to the "Idol"-producers for not pulling the trigger on the Clay Aiken-heel turn, here, as I'm sure a good chairshot to Sergei's skull has in order.

Constantine...you were doing so WELL, man! I'd even gotten over the early suckage and put into the sure final four. You sure took me back about six weeks or so, because that performance of "How You Remind Me" SUCKED, to the point where EVEN Paula had to say it sucked while giving you a blow job for your "performing". Dude, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING? This was SERIOUSLY offensive, although I give him props for going back and jamming with the backup singers, if only because it hadn't been done yet this year. Kicking at the camera, though? Really? Also, since "American Idol" is Izzy Jo's favorite show, she gets to stay up and watch it, and she was particularly energetic after this song, which led to this exchange in our living room:

MOMMY: Did you like that song?
IZZY JO: Yeah.
MOMMY: Do you like that guy?
DADDY [interjecting]: NO!
IZZY JO: I like that guy.
DADDY: No, you don't.
IZZY JO: Yes, I like him.
DADDY [thinking ahead twelve or thirteen years to when we're supposed to be having this kind of argument]: NO, you DON'T.
IZZY JO: Yes, I do-hoo.

DADDY turns pale and a little dizzy, and flips it to the Sonics-game.

(Aaaaaaand, CUT!)

It took me about a verse into Scott's performance to pick up on the fact that he was trying a Luther Vandross-song. Why didn't anyone tell him he should not, under ANY circumstances, be doing that? And I'm TIRED of all the references to how tough his life was, and his choice of "Dance with My Father" is like he's falling back on that, AGAIN. Ugh.

I'd have to say my bottom three would be Carrie, Constantine, and Scott. I'd actually like to see Carrie be down there, as I think it would do her some good, and I'm POSITIVE Scott's going home, but I would he a VERY HAPPY "Idol"-watcher if a certain Greek boy went home this week. Oh, yes, I would be SO happy.

Arg...who keeps voting for that fat f%*#?! I guess karma is getting me back for voting for Jasmine for so long last season...

I tuned in tonight JUST to see that guy get booted off the show. GAH! I can't believe that man is safe.

But at least America got some sense knocked into them and voted off the singer who did the worst last night.

But I STILL think fatass woman-beater should have been sent home. But hearing his last perfomance, yeah...Constantine needed to go home. Next week though, America, Scott Savol NEEDS to go.


Just in case any other west coasters haven't seen the show yet...

Scott's your heel of the show, methinks, which is why he sticks around.

FWIW, Fox has decided to try and stop ABC from airing their expose in May.

Holy shit. When they said "Tonight's bottom vote getter has gotten over 35 million votes over the course of the season", we had a weird feeling. And man oh man. Connie was just completely shocked.

However, if Killa wasn't in the bottom 3 this week, and after seeing sites like http://www.votefortheworst.com . . . Killa's winning the whole thing. Scott "Killa" Savol: YOUR next American Idol!

Awww.... America made Paula cry.

I feel like buying America a beer.

Actually, I feel like buying America a 40 of Fin Du Monde and then laughing as America tries to chug it and ends up on its ass going "HOLY SHIT! That's FUCKING STRONG!!!"

And Umm Scott is freaking bulletproof. What does it take to get rid of him? The fact that he got more votes than Vonzell and Constantine is just odd. Is there some kind of trailer park trash collective phone calling going on? Good thing for Scott that American Idol doesn't run during the hurricane season.

And hasn't the White Russian been in the bottom group for like weeks? It seems like every week, he's the guy who just squeaked by to the next week.

Here is why Scott was not in the Bottom 3:

The combination of his video package (poor workig class parents, disenfranchised childhood) and his song choice (Luther Vandross--"Dance With My Father") kept him alive. That package and song played *very* emotionally. Combine that with the way he wears his emotions (read: nerves) in his sleeve, and it really got people to vote for him.

Constantine trying to be NickelBack was REALLY bad--like Nadia, he sealed his own doom with a poor song choice at the worst time.


Bo all the way, baby!!
