I have a few things to say.

1. Melinda is amazing. Incredible. Wow. She SHOULD be the winner this season. However, I don't see that happening. Her personality is sweet but thin and will not get her far. Regardless, she's great.

2. Antonella can't sing worth a damn, but yes, she is hot. That really is the only reason she is here right now, and (this is bold, but...) that is the reason she will be here next week.

3. Haley needs to go. Now.

Oh, also, Jeremy was pretty painful.

Antonella will be in Maxim, Stuff, FHM, Playboy and whatever other T&A magazines within 5 minutes of being voted off the show.

And rightly so. Girlfriend doesn't deserve to be in the top 24, but girlfriend is mighty beautiful.

If there's any justice, Haley and Antonella will be gone tomorrow, along with Sanjaya and Sundance.

But this is American Idol, which means they'll make it into the top 12, and I will resort to meditation to stop myself from banging my head against the wall.

Was it just me or was that painful to listen to?

Girl put your clothes on. I bet we could come up with all new lyrics for that photo in which she is doing something..

I think Gina and Haley will be voted off this week, and Antonella will stay If by some bizarre stretch of the imagination she wins, that show needs to go off the air immediately.

AI Recaps March 7th
Top 8 Girls

Tuesday night was probably one of the worst nights in Idol history. That may sound overblown but the buzz among my fellow Idol watchers was they felt bored, cheated, and annoyed by this crop of guy competitors. Where are the stars in the making? Have we been spoiled by past seasons’ standouts like Ruben, Clay, Bo, Taylor, Chris, and Elliott? Do we have to lower our expectations?

But fortunately, on Wednesday nights, we can raise our expectations. It’s ladies’ night and for the past few weeks there have been several contestants and performances that have far surpassed the guys. Can the girls keep bringing it?

Jordin (Heartbreaker)-Jordin is a huge football fan, right down to painting her face her favorite team’s colors. Jordin starts the show with a notable Pat Benatar song. Now it’s hard to live up to a 90 pound vocal powerhouse like Pat Benatar, but Jordin really does an awesome job. I thought her voice sounded great and I really liked the rock edge to her performance. She really surprised me and caught my attention. Plus, I always giggle when she stoops down to Ryan’s height. Aww, Ryan, you’re such a cute little munchkin.

Sabrina (Don’t Let Go-Love)-Back in high school, Sabrina wanted to be another Katie Couric, but singing won out over the news. Looking gorgeous in a bronze colored dress, Sabrina doesn’t quite live up to past weeks’ performances, but she sounded very strong. She does need to inject some more personality into her performances but based on her vocals alone she does deserve to make it to the top 12.

Antonella (Put Your Records On)-Antonella played violin as a child and still gives lessons. She sings a song by recent Grammy-nominee Corrine Bailey Rae. Why does she sing renowned songs that are completely above her? Antonella has a very weak lower register, though she can hit some higher notes. But she’s just so soulless and colorless. It isn’t that she has a different style than the other girls; she’s just not nearly as good. But she’ll probably get sympathy votes...or votes because of something else...

Haley (If My Heart Had Wings)-Haley reveals to us that she used to be a gymnast, but an injury made her tumble (get it? ::crickets chirping:. Now she’s singing a song that is a bit too sweet for my tastes, but seems to reflect her style. She’s so sugary that she’s probably going to give me a cavity. She just doesn’t have the uniqueness that I like, but I’m sure other people find her appealing. She can sing. I thought Simon was an absolute jerk to her. Maybe she isn’t memorable because she doesn’t have a tragic back story, a sleazy and salacious side to her persona, or wasn’t promoted during her audition and Hollywood week.

Stephanie (Sweet Thing)-Stephanie has been singing since she was three years old, but was too shy to sing in front of anyone other than her parents. Well, she isn’t shy now. I’m so impressed over Stephanie’s stage presence. She’s a stylish performer with great showmanship. However, she does need to put her own personality into the songs instead of being a facsimile of the originals. But I think she’s a lock for the top 12.

LaKisha (I Have Nothing)-LaKisha is terrified of animals. Well, she certainly isn’t terrified of the stage. Whitney who? LaKisha may sing that she has nothing, but let’s face it. This girl has talent, passion, and a good connection with the lyrics. She also has a great cheering section: her mom and auntie. LaKisha deserves to be in the top 12. And on a shallow note, I really loved her shoes.

Gina (Call Me When You’re Sober)-Gina’s secret? She has a couple of lucky charms, and not the kind you eat for breakfast. Gina is finally in her element singing a rock song that shows off her strong rocker chick vocals. Though Gina over sings a bit, she really got into her performance and it was exciting. I hope she stays. We need a change from the R & B divas, who I love, but I really want a rocker chick in this competition.

Melinda (I’m a WOMAN)-Melinda claims to have quirky habits, but they are all about equality. Melinda connects with the lyrics and has command of the stage. Her voice was top notch. She belted where she needed to belt, and showed subtlety where it was needed. She just loves to perform, and is obviously thrilled to finally have her chance in the spotlight. Melinda’s performance was a wonderful way to end the show. Plus she’s likable. I want this girl to go very far. The judges do, too.

Once again, after another week of Idol, the girls rule and the boys drool (yes, I’m twelve). Thursday night we’ll get our top twelve. Some choices will make us cheer, and some choices will make us throw heavy objects at our televisions. Things are going to get interesting. And is it just me, or has Paula been lucid for the past couple of episodes? She’s actually giving good, constructive criticism instead of her usual “puppies and rainbows” ramblings. Is she taking the Simon pills?

I think Gina will make it through, but one of the better singers like Jordin, Stephanie or Sabrina will be gone, because let's face it- there's a handful of good singers, and they're going to eventually cancel each other out. Or split the vote, however you want to call it.

"Girls put your clothes on" seriously funny, Mrs.Springsteen.

Antonella is a mixture of lack of talent and a huge sense of entitlement. This is a huge turn off to me, but I'm afraid she's going to survive over far more talented contestants. And if she does win, the show will have seriously jumped over a huge shark.

I hope Gina makes it to the top 12. She may not have as strong a voice as some of the girls but she's different and I really like her.
Based on performances alone, I think Antonella and Hayley should be going home. Obviously people are basing their votes on other things though, so who knows.

Antonella sure does seem bratty when listening to the judges' comments. I wish that would hurt her cause, but I don't think anything will at this point.

She's the Teflon Idol.

I am so dissappointed in Sanjaya's performances thus far. His audition was so unique and outstanding but his performances have been terrible. He doesn't put soul into his singing and he doesn't put that extra UMPH to maje a song shine. It's like he's shy about singing.

I hope he makes it through because I know he can do better.

"IDOL GIVES BACK" TWO-NIGHT SPECIAL

TO BENEFIT CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE IN NEED

IN AMERICA AND AFRICA

TUESDAY, APRIL 24, AND WEDNESDAY, APRIL 25, ON FOX


Gwen Stefani, Josh Groban, Pink, Michael Bublé, Annie Lennox, Il Divo

And Borat Sagdiyev Among Many World-Renowned Artists to Appear


Ford Motor Company Leads Corporate Sponsors


During tonight's live broadcast of AMERICAN IDOL, it will be announced that FOX, AMERICAN IDOL and the Charity Projects Entertainment Fund (CPEF) have partnered on an historic television event - IDOL GIVES BACK - a two-night special raising awareness and funds for organizations that provide relief programs to help children and young people in extreme poverty in America and Africa.

The AMERICAN IDOL performance show airs Tuesday, April 24 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) and the expanded results show airs Wednesday, April 25 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.

On Tuesday, April 24 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), the Top 6 finalists will sing songs that can be considered "Life Anthems." In keeping with the IDOL GIVES BACK theme, all the songs performed will be about compassion and hope. After the performance show, viewers will vote for their favorite contestants via toll-free numbers and text messages, as usual. On this special night, however, viewers will also help change the lives of the truly needy. For every vote cast, AMERICAN IDOL sponsors Coca-Cola and AT&T, along with a range of additional partners, will donate money to the charity.

The Ford Motor Company will also contribute to the cause in connection with its weekly music video, details of which will be announced soon.

The special two-hour results show on Wednesday, April 25 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) will be a star-studded evening featuring world-renowned artists and celebrities, including Gwen Stefani, Josh Groban, Pink, Michael Bublé, Annie Lennox, Il Divo and popular Kazakhstan journalist Borat Sagdiyev (Sacha Baron Cohen) among many others who will take the AMERICAN IDOL stage.

During the Wednesday event, adding to the corporate contributions, viewers will be able to make their own donations via toll-free lines and the Internet.

The money raised by the two shows will equally benefit the U.S. and Africa. In the U.S., the money will be distributed via CPEF to Save the Children and other U.S. organizations working to deliver programs to children living in extreme conditions in some of the most disadvantaged areas of the country. To find out more about poverty here in America, please visit www.savethechildren.org.

In Africa, the money will be dedicated to delivering health and education programs and will be distributed via CPEF to a number of organizations, including U.S. Fund for UNICEF, The Global Fund, Save the Children, Nothing but Nets and Malaria No More. For viewers interested in learning more about how to get involved in efforts to fight AIDS and extreme poverty around the world, IDOL GIVES BACK is also providing a link on its website (www.americanidol.com/idolgivesback) to ONE: The Campaign to Make Poverty History (www.one.org).

"Richard Curtis is a remarkable man and the Red Nose Day charity on BBC TV is an amazing humanitarian effort. Richard approached me a couple of years ago and asked how we could work together to launch a major new televised charity initiative in the U.S. following on from the $820 million that he has raised in the UK with Red Nose Day," stated Simon Fuller, creator and executive producer of AMERICAN IDOL. "After lengthy discussions it occurred to me that we should use AMERICAN IDOL as an existing platform to premiere this idea. Thanks to the huge support of FOX and the enthusiasm and energy of Nigel Lythgoe, Ken Warwick, Cecile Frot-Coutaz and Simon, Ryan, Paula and Randy, it has finally become a reality. Red Nose Day is an extraordinary institution and I am hoping that IDOL GIVES BACK is an enormous success, raising awareness and huge amounts of money for all these wonderfully deserving causes, and allowing us to continue to make these important, world-changing shows for many years to come."

"When we were approached by Richard Curtis, Simon Fuller, Simon Cowell and CPEF about this project, we felt it was a natural fit," said Peter Chernin, president and chief operating officer, News Corporation. "For the past five seasons, viewers have fulfilled the dreams of the contestants. Now they have the chance to help us change the lives of children and young people in need and at risk, here in the U.S. as well as in Africa."

"We are thrilled to have this unique opportunity to work with AMERICAN IDOL to bring the issue of extreme poverty in Africa and in America into the hearts, minds and homes of millions of Americans," said Richard Curtis, co-founder of the UK's Red Nose Day charity and renowned writer/director of such films as "Love Actually," "Notting Hill" and "Four Weddings and a Funeral." Curtis was a founding member of the Make Poverty History coalition and worked throughout 2004 and 2005 on the campaign and "Live 8" with Bono and Bob Geldof.

U2's Bono, co-founder of the One Campaign to Make Poverty History, said, "We'll see worlds collide when Africa appears on America's most-watched TV show. This is a big deal, a little bit of pop history ... I wouldn't underestimate the reach of this show or the impact its audience can have."

"The IDOL GIVES BACK premiere provides an excellent opportunity for AMERICAN IDOL viewers to engage with the issues of poverty and health in Africa. People all across Africa are fighting back against AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, and there is optimism and hope everywhere. AMERICAN IDOL viewers will be able to learn more about these successes and contribute directly to them. It is a wonderfully exciting opportunity, and I thank Richard Curtis, Simon Fuller, Peter Chernin and the many others who are launching IDOL GIVES BACK," said Sir Richard Feachem, executive director of the Global Fund.

"Using the power of the world's most popular television event, AMERICAN IDOL, to benefit millions of needy children around the globe, is a remarkable and extraordinary achievement. On behalf of 25 million children in Save the Children's programs worldwide, we are all deeply excited and appreciative," said Bill Haber, board trustee of Save the Children.

"AMERICAN IDOL has given so much to this network and we don't take that for granted," said Peter Liguori, president of entertainment for Fox Broadcasting Company. "To quote a famous superhero, 'with the gift of power comes great responsibility,' which is why we feel so fortunate to partner in this special television event, giving back."

Executive Producers Nigel Lythgoe, Ken Warwick and Cecile Frot-Coutaz added: "This is going to be a television event unlike any other. We are planning two nights of amazing, star-studded entertainment, and we're using the power of AMERICAN IDOL to raise needed awareness and funds. Our fans can give directly if they want, but they can also impact the lives of people in this country and in Africa just by voting as they do every week. It's that easy and it's that important."

Simon Cowell and Ryan Seacrest traveled to Africa and personally witnessed the poverty and disease there, as well as the extensive programs that are underway to fight them.

"Having witnessed some of the appalling conditions in Africa firsthand, I'm especially proud that our show is offering Americans the chance to help those most in need," said Cowell. "Ensuring that American charities will equally benefit from these efforts was one of my priorities, and I'd like to thank our sponsors for their support and generosity in making this possible."

Seacrest added: "I thought I was prepared for what I would see in Africa, but the level of poverty was beyond anything I could have imagined. You see it, you smell it, you taste it. However, despite the extreme conditions, you feel an incredible sense of hope from the people ... especially the children."

Additionally, Cowell and Seacrest will be joined by Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson, visiting areas such as Kentucky and parts of Mississippi and Louisiana devastated by Hurricane Katrina. Although it has been over a year since the hurricane hit, many people's lives are still in turmoil despite the efforts being made.

"Children and children's charities have always played such an important part of my life and career," said Abdul. "I am extremely excited to be a part of this new project, which I believe can truly make a difference. Visiting the sites of these tragedies will certainly bring a renewed awareness to these children's plight and I look forward to meeting so many of them in the coming weeks."

Jackson added: "I'm so happy and proud that we are part of trying to get all of America back on its feet and tend to the problems here at home, in addition to those abroad. I grew up in the proud state of Louisiana and it breaks my heart every time I think about the devastation to both Mississippi and Louisiana. I'm looking forward to taking part in making a difference and helping to create awareness for the devastated areas."

These trips will be highlighted in the specials, demonstrating what can be achieved by communities working together and how even small donations can make a life-changing difference.

A website for teachers and students created by Scholastic, the global children's publishing, education and media company, will be available at www.scholastic.com/idolgivesback. It was designed to inspire students about the importance of global citizenship. The tools provided will help young people understand how they can take action in small and big ways to help make the world a better place for everyone.

Twenty-two-time Emmy-nominated AMERICAN IDOL is created and executive-produced by Simon Fuller, founder of 19 Entertainment; and executive-produced by Cecile Frot-Coutaz, CEO, FremantleMedia North America, Inc.; Nigel Lythgoe, President, 19 Television; and Ken Warwick, Executive Producer, FremantleMedia North America, Inc.

Charity Projects Entertainment Fund (CPEF) www.cpefund.com

CPEF is a new charitable organization established to raise money and awareness to help combat extreme poverty in the U.S. and throughout the world, particularly in Africa. CPEF's mission is to use the power of entertainment to drive positive change to achieve its vision of creating a just world free from poverty. CPEF is inspired and supported by the UK charity that invented Red Nose Day.


U.S. Fund for UNICEF www.unicefusa.org

For more than 60 years, UNICEF has been the world's leading children's organization, saving more young lives than any other humanitarian organization. Working in over 150 countries and territories, UNICEF knows how to save the lives of children with low-cost, high-impact programs. From child health and nutrition, water and sanitation, education and protection, UNICEF's experience, resources, global presence and perspective are unsurpassed in helping save children's lives.


The Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria www.jointheglobalfund.org

The Global Fund is the world's leading funder of programs to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, which taken together kill over 6 million people per year. Created in 2002, the Global Fund has approved 450 grants worth $7 billion to programs in 136 countries. Of this, $2.3 billion has been committed to AIDS programs in Africa. As of December 2006, Global Fund-financed programs had put 770,000 people on antiretroviral (ARV) treatment; distributed 18 million insecticide-treated bed nets to combat malaria; and detected and treated more than 2 million TB cases - which are rising sharply due to co-infection with HIV. All Global Fund-financed programs support 2 million orphans around the world.


Save the Children www.savethechildren.org

Save the Children is the leading independent organization creating real and lasting change for children in need in the United States and around the world. The agency is a member of the International Save the Children Alliance, which is a worldwide network of 28 independent Save the Children organizations working in more than 110 countries to ensure the well-being of children everywhere.


Nothing But Nets www.NothingButNets.net

Nothing But Nets is a global, grassroots campaign to save lives by preventing malaria, a leading killer of children in Africa. Inspired by Sports Illustrated columnist Rick Reilly, thousands of people have joined the campaign that was created by the United Nations Foundation. Founding campaign partners include the National Basketball Association's NBA Cares, The People of the United Methodist Church and Sports Illustrated. Other partners include VH-1, The Mark J. Gordon Foundation, AOL Black Voices and Rotarians' Action Group on Malaria. It only costs $10 to provide an insecticide-treated bed net that can prevent this deadly disease. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation matches donations dollar for dollar.

Malaria No More www.malarianomore.org

Malaria No More's mission is simple: to end deaths due to malaria. The world has known how to beat this disease for more than a century, yet it remains the number-one killer of children under five in sub-Saharan Africa, claiming more than 1 million lives a year. Malaria No More engages individuals, organizations and corporations in the private sector to provide life-saving bed nets and other critical interventions to families in need. Together, these investments will significantly reduce malaria infections and make malaria-related deaths a thing of the past.


Founded in 2006 by leading non-governmental institutions, Malaria No More works in partnership with the President's Malaria Initiative, UNICEF, American Red Cross, The Global Fund to Fight HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, Millennium Promise, United Way of America, United Nations Foundation, Global Business Coalition on HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, and others.
