Hello American Idol fanatics! Â After I came to my senses fromÂ last night's blogÂ who lost on American Idol this week was not much of a surprise. Â What WAS a surprise however was who was accompanying him in the bottom 3! Â Ladies and gentlemen, you know him as the guy with the crazy hats. Â Say goodbye to the final Judge'sÂ wildcardÂ entry and also their saved contestant:Â
Eliminated:Â Matt Giraud
As I stated, I may have overrated Matt's performance just a bit. Â It wasn't awful, but I think I remembered the big note at the end and forgot the rest of the performance. Â He was never going to win and his votes from last week were probably inflated due to the Judges' Save the week before. Â So, good job everyone that called out Matt! Â Â But I think you all owe me a pat on the back for my defense of Allison! Â Top 2 this week eh? Â Not too bad. Â I mean, she really was awesome last night. Â I still stand by that! Â Â
But okay, let's get to the big news. Â ADAM LAMBERT - BOTTOM 3. Â Â Woa, wait a sec. Â ADAM LAMBERT - BOTTOM 2!!! Â Â Can you Â believe it?Â I guess people aren't big fans of Cows Mooing! Â Sure, this will all but solidify Adam into the top 3 with a HUGE rally next week. Â But what does this mean? Â Is Mr Jazz Hands vulnerable? Â Can he be defeated!? Â Well, I'm guessing the folks at American Idol would like us to think so. Â Considering we did not see the votes, there is no telling that Adam was REALLY in the bottom 2. Â We were just told that Kris was safe! Â For a brief second, I was pondering the thought of a finale with Allison and Kris and how good and unexpected that could actually be! Â Of course, still improbable. Â Danny still has hisÂ Gokey'itesout there and the Jazz Hand Fan Club will definitely be showing their support in the coming weeks.Â Â Â
Â Just crazy. Â Â And with the Rock WEEK coming up next, can Allison really be stopped from getting to that top 3 as well? Â I sure hope not!Â
- Ford Video - Actually pretty nifty this week, just like Matt Giraud's hats!Â
- Taylor Hicks - I give the guy a lot of crap for his lack of MAINSTREAM success, but I can't help but still like the guy, even if his new song "7 Minute Breakdown" won't be lighting up the charts. Â He's still an entertaining guy and a great musician!
- TheÂ BdayÂ Food Fight - Well, it was probably an arranged fight by the Idol Producers, but who doesn't enjoy seeing cake thrown at other people?! Â
- Adam Lambert in the bottom 2! Â Gives everyone else hope!Â
- Natalie Cole - Â most unenthusiastic appearance on Idol I've ever seen.Â
- JamieÂ FoxxÂ - most self-absorbed man I've ever seen. Â So glad he got to plug that movie instead of showing any amount of interest in giving feedback on the contestants. Â And that performance?! Oh dear. Â Gotta love the voice modulation on a show about good singing voices!Â
- Oh right, the Idol Group song. Â Well, that was PEPPY wasn't it?! Â It had pretty much everything you could possibly want except a constant sense ofÂ rhthym, melody and interest from the people singing it!Â
