I nodded off twice during this snooze fest and we had 10 people over for dinner. So I tried to watch it over and I kept zoning out. All three did one good version of a song but the thought of actually voting never crossed my mind. The other 2 song picks I could have cared less about. I found that tonight that FF on the remote is truly one of Man’s best friends.

Luckily on the second go around I had several episodes of RedEye stored up so I did the split screen thing and let The Notorious Rapper P.A.B. (Patti Ann Brown for those in Rio Linda) hypnotize me to my happy place with her leg swinging back and forth while occupying the coveted Leg Chair. Or was it her breasts either way I went to my happy place and that AI show was never thought of again.

Same here I am hoping the X-Factor rocks this time around.

I am with you as far as tonight show went on AI they could not have put on a bigger snooze fest leading up to the final two. I watched it twice even thou on the second go around I was ever so slightly distracted by Patti Ann Brown I still can't remember a performance that stood out. It was just one long monotoned song for me.

Who ever was picking out these tunes must have been on the pay-role of ASCAP and really needed the royaltie checks. This is supposed to be the night they all bring it and really kick it up a notch but instead of Emeril Lagasse hyped up on energy drinks we got Martha Stewart overdosing on Zolof while eating a whole deep fried turkey.

PP may be similar to something like the soul patrol

Yeah maybe PP can hook up with Ta-Ta and both do a lounge act together in Vegas. The one tune he did he nailed it but who cares like the rest of them tonight all boring.

I would like to see the beginning show ratings Vs. the end of the show ratings. I would say if Ledet gets through he should win it. If there are any viewers still awake next week to vote for him that is.

LOL I caught that too. I think Steven needs to stay out of the GAP and Deb Store for awhile and hook up with Adam Coroalla and build a Man-Cave or something.

Well, whether anybody here at all cares for Adam Lambert or the other guest tonight - Lisa Marie Presley who just moved to the UK (probably to get away from scientology HQ imo, it will be more eventful. Maybe the top 3 will learn something from Glambert tonight; like how to bring it whatever it is. Even Lisa Marie has more stage presence. She could sing the tv guide and it would be haunting.

All the votes in the world won't sustain a big time music career for the three if the foundation's not there. Then, throw in some really dated material and it's a snoozefest. 1. gospel guy 2. chick who has it all but please, not all at once and 3. cute guy whose start will burn out in a year. What a selection to get confettied. It's turned into a confetti party.

Anyway, Mary K Blige is on a lot cuz she's one of Jimmy Iodine's (better name for him) peeps.

The question is: who will get the confetti and the balloons cuz after the tour, that will be the highlight of their night next Wednesday nite.

Is Greg Gutfield really that short? They make short jokes all the time. I noticed him standing once while everybody else was sitting and they were his height sitting. Any idea GG’s height? I’m just wondering if you know.

I luv Celebrity Apprentice. Both teams are in a fix this time between Adam’s faux videographers and Debbie Gibson’s Shake Your Love and her relative stalling on the mural. If Arsenio gets Magic to appear in person, they’ll win. Debbie Gibson is not as good a singer as these top 3. She didn’t improve her voice with age. Her bad.

A friend of mine is related to Clay Aiken due to the surrogacy of David Foster’s sister to present a baby to Clay. This isn’t a secret but it isn’t well publicized.

Drive thrus like Tyler in Burger King ad next stop for singers who lack intensity. Tyler’s good in the commercial. What a coincidence that Mary K Blige did a Burger King commercial but it was pulled bec people thought it was racially insensitive. Jimmy Iodine knows Tyler and Blige. I wonder what Iodine did to get Tyler and Blige hooked up with BK. Iodine’s the guy to watch. He’s a wheeler and a dealer imo.

A cover story in People Magazine seems pretty well-publicised to me. Guess YMMV.

That reminds me of Haley Reinhart's return home last year. "Is that my limo!? BLEEP! Really?? BLEEEEEEEEEEEEP!"

They play one of her videos at the gym. OMG That song will not END! It seems like the video is 18 minutes long. It is just like her AI performance this season- her trying to be some kind of sex kitten. It's so totally forced and just doesn't work with her bluesy voice.

Rofl! Your intro pictures are hilarious! But you quoted the judges too closely, not hyperbolic enough! Should have written “Best singer we’ve heard in 100 years!”. :)

Just going to read the thread now.

Miscellaneous disconnectedthoughts and ramblings:

...I read somewheres recently that the median age of the AI viewer this season is 53. The first season, it was 31.....that's a SCARY trend.

This may be the worst semifinal I've ever seen.

Joshua Ledet has a tough road to hoe....can't decide if he wants to be compared to Obama OR to Fantasia.

P2 wins this going away..all the teeners, tweeners, and their mommas, will vote like made for him. Jessica would win if they open up voting in the Phillipine Islands..remember a while back, when Jasmine Trias stayed WAAAY beyond her expiration date..because they extended the voting hours for the Hawaian Islands, and they all voted for her en mass?

Randy is really, REALLY annoying me this season..

Judges really pimping for Jessica and/or Joshua...they will look stupid when P2 wins. Sort of like DWTS, where his week the couple who got the BEST score from the judges was sent home. That really sucks.

If, Jessica wins, it's sort of like the wild card team winning the World Series...

If not for this thread..I'd never watch the show again.

Call me crazy, but I am NOT fond of teenagers singing these torch songs of wanting “one more night with you”...Guess Im old fashioned.


I was wondering about you guys reacting to this. A 16 year old girl singing two songs about having sex. Is this really ok for a family show? If this is ok for american society that 16 year old girls are not just having sex but sleeping the whole night with a man, why can’t it be her teacher? He probably has a lot of patience. /s

Makes me kinda sick that this seems to be ok for American idol.

Reminds me of the Weird Al Yankovic video for "Fat" (parody of Michael Jackson's "Bad") where the one guy says to Weird Al, "Yo, Ding Dong, man, Ding Dong, Ding Dong, yo."
