Without Golightly's recaps, and the hilarity that ensued, it took us a lot longer to reach part 2 of our AI thread. I miss her. Where did she go?

I sent her a PM back in January, and this is the gist of what she said:

I've decided to put the AI recaps on the back burner this year. I have several other projects I'm working on

I told her she would be missed. And I really wonder what she's up to & what she thinks of the competition this year, especially with Danny Gokey being from Wisconsin. Her "location" was stated as Milwaukee, WI.

Just finished watching the show a little while ago. Kris looked stunned. Congrats to both Kris & Adam. Hard to believe the top two were only separated by one million votes. I wish they would release the voting numbers/breakdowns. I still can't believe there were 88 million votes last night

I found a blog entry by GolightlyGirl (sp?) and this is what she said back in mid-April

What else? Oh, yes, television. I'm still watching American Idol despite no longer writing my recaps. Some are probably wondering if I'm supporting Danny Gokey because he's from Milwaukee. The answer is no. I'm not enthralled with his singing or performing skills, and he gives me serious douchebag vibes. Plus, how many glasses does this guy own? It's not like he's Bono. But there are a few contestants I do like. I like Adam Lambert, the over-the-top, theatrical rocker with the dyed black hair and eye liner. At the other end of the spectrum, I like the low-key Kris Allen, who is consistently good week after week. Allison Iraheta's talent belies her tender years, and she kind of reminds me of Kelly Clarkson. Anoop Desai is cute but lacking in charisma. And I can't be arsed to care about Lil Rounds or Matt Giraud.

I had to watch Lost-but I caught a bit of that Katy Perry thing and it sure was painful

Interesting, but there's no way 19/Dark Lord Clive Davis will let Adam slip through their fingers. Also, I really doubt that's something Adam would want to do anyway. He has said he's a big Queen fan; he even sang "Bohemian Rhapsody" beautifully in his first audition. However, I think he's the type of person who wants to be his own artist and create his own music, rather than being a glorified Freddie Mercury impersonator.

↑ agreed

I know most of you weren't Danny fans, but there are some video clips here from after the show with the judges talking to Danny, as well as Danny's interview on American Idol Extra.

Danny Gokey - American Idol Extra - VIDEO | mjsbigblog

-Idol bootee Danny Gokey sits down with American Idol Extra’s Jillian Reynolds and Ace Young, and finally, with the threat of elimination no longer looming, he’s free to be himself.

Having kept all his impulses bottled up for weeks, Danny literally lets loose a torrent of words on all those subjects that became taboo during the competition–his wife, his desire to inspire people, the kids foundation he started in his late wife’s Sophia’s name.

It’s obvious he’s been reading about himself online.

In part one, Paula is practically hysterical as she’s hugging on the Idol stage after his singout. And Danny joins Jillian part-way through her interview with Idol producer, Ken Warwick.

You can even see Jillian get choked up after the show when she does a brief onstage interview with Danny
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`


Another interview stated that Simon Cowell thought that “Heartless” was the best performance of the entire season.

‘American Idol’: On the scene for the Top 3 results

Can I just tell you that after last night’s results show was over; after Ryan told Kris Allen he had become the first Idol cannon fodder to have a real shot at winning the whole shebang (as opposed to, you know, Diana DeGarmo); after Danny Gokey learned his fairy tale story — i.e. going from true tragedy to the fleeting “triumph” of becoming a judges’ favorite on a reality singing competition show — had ended in third place; and after Simon caused viewers everywhere to make a bumble-fuzzed “wuzzah?” face when he called next week’s finale a “big ding-dong,” I witnessed one of the sweetest things I’ve ever seen in my three years of covering this infuriating, invigorating national obsession. The moment the show was off the air, Kris Allen’s mother raced over to Adam Lambert’s mother and the two women gave each other pretty much the biggest Proud-Mamas hug ever. I could’ve sworn my snark demon Smirkelstiltskin had a tear in his eye, although that probably was just because he’d no longer have the pleasure of watching Danny Gokey “meditate” by placing a single finger upon his stubbly chin.
