American Idol-Top Five Results

For the past three months we’ve seen the faces of David C, Brooke, Syesha, David A and Jason. But for some reason it seems like it’s been three years. After 45 million votes, one of the final five is leaving us. Yes, it’s results night on American Idol.

After the judges are introduced, the contestants do the group sing. Or as Ryan calls it, a tribute to Neil Diamond. Okay, Ryan, if that’s what you want to call it that. This is when I get a drink. Hello, bottle of Chardonnay. Come to mama!

Hey, remember Gina and Constantine from previous AI seasons? Right now they are hosting AI Extra, a chockfull of American Idol goodness. Gina is definitely earning her paycheck if she’s working with slimy Constantine. It doesn’t take much coaching from Ryan to get Constantine to give one of his patented eye shags to the camera. Oh great. Now my TV has genital warts.

Performance night was a bit odd for the judges. Well, it was a bit odd for Paula, but that’s every performance night. Despite her major snafu, she’s still a member of the AI (dysfunctional) family. I saw Paula on one of the cheesy entertainment shows and she said she was just following directions from the producers. If you ask me, she was following directions from Jim Beam.

Now it’s time for some results...

Jason is summoned. Despite some rather dull performances, he is safe. I guess being cute will take you far.

Now it’s time for David A. I swear my four-year-old nephew could take this kid in a fight. Well, no matter what. David A is also safe.

No, I will not be writing recaps for “So You Think You Can Dance.” I need a well-deserved break. Is it just me or does Nigel Lythgoe look like a Muppet?

After Randy shows off his modeling skills, we get back to the results. David C joins Ryan. He thinks Paula just gave him the kiss of death by saying he’s the next American Idol. Oh, that David is such a card! He’s also safe.

Not surprisingly, Syesha and Brooke are in the bottom two. Syesha claims song choice is difficult for her. Brooke tells us she’s finally in a happy place but it might be too late. However, it’s good she found the right meds. Ryan tells them to join their pals on the Sofa of Safety.

Natasha Bedingfield sings a song and I don’t bother to learn its name. Her eyeliner is quite heavy, isn’t it? Why is she shouting the chorus? Aww, David A just got his first kiss from a girl and in front of all of America.

Oh no, not again, the dreaded viewer calls. What did we learn this week, class? Well, Paula gives contestants a break because somebody has to. She’ll also do another video with Randy when he becomes an animated cat or dawg or squirrel. Squirrel? And we learn Simon had his first kiss with Tara when he was only nine. That is more than I need to know, Simon.

Time for the pimpmercial. The Idol-ettes sing “Catch the Wind.” This week’s message is “Keep it Clean. Keep in Green.”

Now it’s time for this week’s mentor, Neil Diamond, to push his latest CD. Yea, like anyone would go on this show out the goodness of their heart. He sings “Pretty Amazing Grace” and Kristy Lee, who’s in the audience, is like, “Hey, that’s my song. Oh wait, it’s not.” The kids in the mosh pit are probably saying to themselves, “My grandma loves this guy.”

Okay, finally we’re up to the announcement of this week’s bootee. Syehsa and Brooke join Ryan once again. Not surprisingly, Brooke is broken and has been voted off. I’ve liked Brooke from the beginning but she just wasn’t long for this competition. I hope some producer helps her access her inner Carole King and she makes a great CD.

Now do I dare ask what next week’s theme is?

I'm actually surprised that more of the contestants who are eliminated don't get that emotional. Is it professional to get all torn up like that? No...but come on, that's gotta be really hard.

It doesn't bother me, I actually think it's sort of cute...but it just seems like we've had more of that this year. Either the contestants are nicer so the folk staying actually empathize with those going...or they're a bunch of jellyfish.

Brooke was already in tears before Ryan made the announcement. Maybe she sensed it

I was noticing... in previous years, it seems the contestants have a connection or bond to each other or to at least one other contestant. This year, they all seem disjointed/not together. Age difference/background? Last night Syesha was the only one to shed a tear, either out of friendship or relief of being safe

And GG - the theme next week is Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame (scroll back a page or two, I posted info).

I agree. Even if I don't care for the contestants, I get a little sad for them, especially the farther along they are in the competition.

I have to agree with this. I thought she was charming for a while, but the last few weeks have just been pathetic. It really drove me nuts when she kept doing that thing with her bottom lip.

Brooke should star in a porn movie called "Pouty Butt".

Thanks Lila64. I totally had a brain fart and forgot you had mentioned this.

BROOKIE!

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh......

Pour out a little liquor for Brooke White. The Brookie monster. The girl with the 18 karat gold heart. The pouty face that stole the show. I will never let you go.

America's sweetheart version 2.0.

Simultaneously the cutest and least stable contestant in the history of this proud reality television competition.

Brooke, you have made your way into my memories and my mind, and from the depths of my God-graced soul you will never, ever leave.

I pray that the sun shines on you each day of your life, and that all your wildest dreams come true.

Sleep.

Sleep tonight.

And may your dreams be realized.

And if the thundercloud passes rain.

Let it rain.

America is still building and burning down love.

But when I go there....

I go there with you, Brooke.

It's all I can do.

I'll see you where the streets have no name, where the streets are lined with blonde-haired, pouty-faced angels.

Yes, the city's a flood.

And our love has turn to rust.

But when I go there....

I go there with you.

It's all I can do.

You will be missed.

Brooke needs to get into pilates or yoga or something and learn how to stop clenching that jaw and breathe. Otherwise she's going to have some serious back problems one day.

In all 7 seasons, i've never heard anybody do a U2 song. For some reason, i thought that the band wouldn't give the rights to the show. Oh well, it's probably a good thing that we haven't had to endure anybody butchering our beloved songs.
Elliott Yamin sang One with Mary J. Blige in the finale of season 5. Well, not so much "with." I think he got three words in.

Totally.

The Norwegian Idol dude sang Beautiful Day when they had that "World Idol" show, way back when.

I can't imagine they'd give one country's Idol the rights but not another's.
