Yep. It was just off and kind of boring. Not to mention not a very good song to begin with, imo.

I''m glad I was wrong.

Aaron was less popular than I realized.

I really can't see Mike in the F2, he keeps being in the bottom group. My money is on Lee and Crystal now.

I'm voting for Mike next week because I think Lee and Crystal are safe and the cute but incredibly dull Casey should go next. Plus, "This Woman's Work" was one of the best things I've ever heard on AI so I am happy to throw some votes his way. And, I just like the guy.

heads up - the season finale of Idol is going to be 7 minutes long, because they are just soooo important and can fuck with everyone's DVR settings as much as they please.

Also, Idol wants to know why nobody cares anymore. Take a survey!

Damn. Crystal and Lee's duet was easily the best performance on Idol all season. Really great stuff. Fun to watch.

Here's a rundown & recap of the whole evening

 
The Top 4 take on the songs of the cinema, with the help of mentor, Jamie Foxx. In addition to performing solo, the kids will be pairing up for duets: Crystal Bowersox will perform with Lee DeWyze and Casey James will croon with Michael Lynche.

After introducing the judges and the Top 4, Ryan Seacrest runs the Video package, featuring Jamie Foxx, tonight’s mentor. He’s a movie star AND a multi-platinum R&B artist. He’s the perfect mentor! Music is a the soundtrack of our lives, says, Jamie. Lets figure out what we have now, and elevate it.

Jamie is sitting in the audience. He brought the kids t-shirts. Oooh. Are you a contestant or an artist? After they are done singing, he’s going to present them with a t-shirt that will either say “contestant” or “Artist” depending how they do…

Lee DeWyze – “Kiss From A Rose” by Seal – After his mentoring session Jamie gives Lee an artist’s shirt. Lee is playing his acoustic guitar tonight. This is a really hard song to sing. Really easy to lose pitch. Hm. Bandzilla is drowning him out. Don’t think I would have picked this song for Lee. This performance is really underwhelming. It’s time to step it up, contestants! Randy says, “For me, you did nothing with that song, pitchy in spots–choose a rock kind of song, be who you are.” Ellen says, “There could have been more done with the song, but you’re so good, I loved it.” Ellen says, “You had a great week last week, it’s one of the most difficult songs to sing, having the arrangement, you got lost a little lost, but you are still great.” Simon says, “I’m with Randy. There are so many brilliant songs, and so many opportunities to make it your own. That was karaoke, you tried too hard to make it sound like the original. I would give you the contestant shirt.” Lee felt really good about his performance. 1-866-436-5701 – 1-866-436-5705

Michael Lynche – “Will You Be There” by Michael Jackson – He’s sitting with Ryan at the Top. He talks about the pressure of getting into the Top 3. And how, a year ago the Top 3 was his goal. He’s trying to bring it home to his city. Oh. Jamie is giving him the contestant shirt! Cause he didn’t know his words. Michael is on the stairs to begin. He’s got a six-singer choir behind him. Choir is descending the steps. I should be bowled over by this, but for some reason I am not. I think the song is a little too big for Michael. I’m not feeling it. Randy says, “I didn’t love this for you either, I wish you had chosen some R&B song. It didn’t take off.” Ellen makes a “Free Willy joke, and then, “Your goal should be to win. It was a little bit predictable”. Kara namechecks Mike’s memorable performances like “Womans’ Work” and says, “Those were songs where I had goosebumps. I didn’t feel that from you. You played it safe. I know you have more. I want you to go back to those moments.” Simon doesn’t know what Free Willy is. “I think that you could have chosen…at least you gave it 100 percent, and I kind of felt that you meant it….” That was ridiculous. They spent half the time arguing about how the song lyrics have nothing to do with whales. 1-866-436-5702 – 1-866-436-5706

Crystal Bowersox and Lee DeWyze – “Falling Slowly” – Yes. They went there. They’re both playing guitar, facing each other. If you forget Kris Allen and his beautiful rendtion last year, and just take this on it’s own merits. It’s really quite lovely. They’re performance is more energized than Kris’s. Different, not better. I like their interaction–great decision to face each other. They’re voices blend well, dig the counterpoint. Randy says, “What a difference a couple moments. Unbelievable. Amazing. That’s what I’m talking about.” Ellen says, “You’re the new Captain and Tennile! That was great” Kara says, “One of my favorite moments of the entire season, I loved the chemistry the support, you brought out the best in both of you.” Simon says, “I don’t know if I’d call that a good song…I’d call it a fantastic song.” Crystal and Lee says the interaction was a little awkward at first. Crystal told Lee at the Chicago auditions that he was her musical crush.

Casey James – Mrs. Robinson by Simon and Garfunkle – Jamie tells Casey to “seduce him”. Casey says it was an intense moment. Casey gets an artist shirt. He’s playing the mandolin. He totally re-arranged it and it’s AWESOME!!! Wow. Casey pulled it out when he needed it. That was terrific. Randy wants to know why he picked the song. Oh No. Here we go again. MORE KARA JOKES. CRITIQUE HIS VOCALS PLEASE. Randy, not that impressed, finally says, “I thought that you sounded cool on it” Ellen says, “I wish they would have given you a big boy guitar. I liked that you came back and did something different with the song. I liked it.” Kara says, “This is you fighting to stay in the competition. This is difficult for you. It was a good choice.” Oh my god. They aren’t talking about his performance. This is ridiculous. Simon says, “I didn’t think the song or the performance had the substance required for this important night. It was lazy. You could have made more of an impact. I think there have been some really strange song choices, and that was one of them.” It’s official. They are busing Casey. 1-866-436-5703 – 1-866-436-5707

Crystal Bowersox – “I’m Alright” by Kenny Loggins from Caddyshack – Jamie gives Crystal the artist shirt after he tells her to look straight at the audience with her pretty green eyes. Crystal is doing a bluesed up version of a pretty crappy song. She’s improving it, but not sure why she picked it. Oh yeah, most of the songs on the list SUCKED! Vocally she’s pretty awesome. She’s making the song her own, as they say. Lots of bluesy wailing. She’s really letting loose. Randy says, “You are an artist, I loved that you tried to switch it up. Nice job.” Ellen says, “The song just got Crystalized. You took that song, and made it better” Kara says, “You made it better…I agree with Randy–Artist!” Simon says, “After that performance, You are back in the game.” Ha. Crystal’s boyfriend Tony was dancing in the audience. 1-866-436-5704 – 1-866-436-5708
