So has the board officially added Adele to the "DO NOT SING" list? If not, I make a motion to adde Adele to the "DO NOT SING" list.

It seems like they go out of their way to sing whoever we put on that list. Maybe some reverse psychology will work.

Please sing more Adele songs! And Stevie Wonder! And plenty of Mariah Carey!

Lady Gaga is NOT a lady, nor is she a singer...what she is...is an attention whore.

Uh-oh ...

You must now apologize to Lady Gaga or I'll pull all my advertising ;)

Tivo is lying to you ;) We'll get an all new 2 hour show this Wednesday.

LOL, the ol' fake broken hand gag.

For some reason, Mad Men never puts any bloopers or outtakes on their DVDs. Maybe they'll release them one day after the show is over.

The Top 13

.

Idol has dispensed with the usual biography/questionnaire that the finalists fill out (which is just as well—there’s only so many answers to questions like “When did you want to be a singer?” “What’s your favorite color?” “What kind of tree would you be?” etc.)

Now each singer has their own official fan page on Facebook where they’re free (more or less) to express themselves. And the comments they post there are more revealing about who they are than anything written in a fill-in-the-blank survey.

So I’ve included a recent Facebook comment from each singer under their photos, along with a link to their fan page. Just click the accompanying Facebook icon.

It's really too bad that there are so many people in this world with such tainted views of reality. I have nothing but positive light in my universe right now. I'm trying to make a better life for me, and for my family. I'm living my dream. I pity you for having nothing better to do with your lives than to tear people down. Dear haters: I love you. You are fuel for my fire.

As he said my name I said to myself that I would praise Him if I won, and Id praise Him if I lost. So thankful for you guys. Thanks for voting! New goal is top 10 so I can see all your beautiful faces on tour! Side note, I will truly miss every single one of those who got sent home. I love you all and you will have a special place in my heart. good night guys=)

It's interesting to see how many "likes" each page has received so far (I think the pages have only been available since Thursday night or Friday morning). Most of the singers have between 6000 and 9000 likes. But Colton Dixon is way ahead with over 20,000 likes. The Gentle Giant has the least with less than 2700.

Regarding your Proverbs tag-line: Vin Scully, who is 84 years old and is returning again this year for his 63rd (!) season as the Dodgers’ announcer, often offers this on-air paraphrase of that verse:

“If you want to make God laugh, just tell Him your plans.”

Jonny, thanks for the ping! I’ve watched Idol very little this year, but it’s interesting to see the top 13. (My Wed. night screenwriting class is still getting in the way!) I’m glad that Jeremy (Jeremiah? whatever — the black guy with the operatic voice) is in! But I predict his attitude will get him voted off the island sooner rather than later. Too bad; he does have quite a voice!

I had to double-check yesterday morning to make sure it wasn't on last night, lol. I'm glad they shortened the semi-final round to just one week instead of dragging it out for three.

See you tonight!

Hi all!

It looks to me, like they have removed a lot of the goofiness from the earlier seasons. I think they are trying to be more serious.

Dramatic twist ... sorta.

Guys vs. Girls this week.

Tomorrow night, Seacrest will cull the lowest ranking Girl and Guy from the herd. Then the judges will decide which one goes home.

He's first with Stevie Wonder's "I Wish". This guy doesn't get a lot of attention, but he's pretty good. Energetic performance.

Randy: You just blew it out at the top of the show! If you feel the beat like that you can do anything. Flawless!

J-Lo: I felt your performance! You made us feel it. (rambles)

Steven: Not too excited huh, J-lo? (to Joshua) You nailed it. Nice going!
