Idol chatter

Oh, Megan, Megan, Megan. It was fun while it lasted.

But your performance last night was awful ... Tonight, you were just downright annoying. And what were you thinking, disrespecting Simon!? You never disrespect Simon.

Aside from the usual drawn-out eliminations … Did anyone else notice the flipped image of Megan in the opening montage? Her tattoos were totally on the opposite arm and I caught that one IMmediately … Also, good to see Alexis Grace sitting in the audience. But sitting next to Jason Castro? … Nice of Paula to give the contestants the be-confident-in-who-you-are-and-go-after-it speech. Too bad the judges smash the contestants for actually being themselves. Ahem, Matt Giraud … Loved the group performance of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing.” Scott MacIntyre at the keyboard and hello, Megan -- where was that stellar vocal for your individual performances!?

After watching Tuesday night’s “American Idol” performances, Kates and I are agreeing …

Adam Lambert is beginning to run away with this thing … We didn’t like him at first, and he’s probably not the type of artist we’d listen to on a regular basis. But each week, he’s managed to come out with stuff that’s far more original and fresh than anything else on the stage. And Simon said as much in his critique.

And you can mark down Kris Allen as the runner-up with the way he’s going. His take on “Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone” was a charmer.

As for the rest of them …

They all can go and let's just do the finale next week with Adam and Kris.

Ok, we can throw Danny Gokey in there, too, for good measure. Ok, and Allison, too.

I thought the headline on the EW recap said it all about Tuesday's night show:

“This...is ‘Bizarro Idol’! A night of ‘Top Downloads’ brings us ancient ditties, ridiculous judges’ comments, and a longing for the good ole’ days of season 7”

Really? Lambert was the best? I thought the last kid (Kris Allen?) was by far the best.
Adam Lambert...I don't know about him.
