You're gonna get worked up about something the loony judge says? Back down, Zoots!

^Not to mention we just spent two weeks being bludgeoned over the head with the Beatles. Thank goodness earlier in the night we had songs from those classic American artists, Queen, Bonnie Tyler, and the Police. Whatever, Paula.

And my problem isn't so much that David Cook is singing covers-of-covers -- it's that Ryan is flat-out telling us that he's doing Chris Cornell's version as he introduces it and the judges still call him "original" and "brave" for doing so. Not so much, guys. If they want to praise him for being clever in picking the Cornell version of Billie Jean, fine. If they want to praise him for his singing being spot-on (which it was), fine. But all of them acted as if David came up with that arrangement himself. THAT's what bugs.

Also, has anyone noticed how much Carly looks like Boy George? It's kinda freaky.

And, yes, Simon's theme-park analogies are usually spot on and last night was no different.

I rewatched the performance today with my daughter, and Ryan did say it was Cornell's version while he was in the crowd of girls in the audience. I missed him saying it last night. So when I first saw it, I liked it but knew it was Cornell's version, which is probably widely unknown/unheard.

I think I understand why the judges said "brave" or whatever - David could have just done Billie Jean in the plain old, expected way, and maybe some people might have said "Ugh, that's not the Billie Jean I know, this sucks!"

(But I hear what you're saying, Allanah.)

I just assume most people watching figure the singers aren't doing their own arrangements anyway. I could be wrong.

I wonder how much control over the arrangement they would have - Chris Sligh did his thing, but the band really pushed back on li'l Josiah's plans during Hollywood week. (Although maybe Ricky and the rest of the band really felt strongly that it was a bad arrangement.)

Honestly, it's the only way I can tolerate American Idol - not getting my grundies in a bundle about it. I used to get all wound up about every other thing on the show, but a healthy dose of cynicism helps.

Yeah really, Paula is a complete loony toon. Nothing she says ever makes sense

It is hilarious that Kristy Lee is still in this competition. And now she's avoiding the bottom 3 altogether? Wow. Seriously, I'm getting a big kick out of watching this girl survive when she really has no right to. I thought she'd be gone a month ago.

Every week she creeps one step closer to having a shitty song on Country Music Television in a year's time. Good for her.

i had a feeling that this person was gonna go (one of the two people I was thinking of). Again, it was the wrong song choice that did this person in.. Great singer tho...

um.. you might want to put "spoiler" in your post.. there are people on the west coast who haven't seen the show yet...

just saying we shouldn't give away the results before the west coast sees it...

I didn't agree with tonights outcome.

Happy that Michael Johns is still in it, Peter Cook has all the stuff but there is just something about him that is not catching me.

If they don't want to be spoiled why look at this thread during the show?


Anyway, there were at least 2 other people who had worse performances (read: vocals) last night. Kristy, Ramiele and sometimes Brooke have trouble staying on key when singing with the full band.
