American Idol - 2/23

Ern is really bummed that Ashley went home. That girl is entertaining, and she definitely has a voice. She is a real life, female Gollum! But whatever. Ern should NOT pick anyone she likes, because, historically, everyone Ern likes is sent home. This could be because Ern has crazy taste in American Idol contestants (Siobhan Magnus anyone?), but it could also be that Ern is jinxed.

We are both less bummed that Chris Medina was sent home. That guy was likeable, but he didn’t have a voice. And he sang “Fix You” by Coldplay. YUCK and cliché. The producers probably put him up to it. No wonder J-Lo cried: The show strung him along so that it could take advantage of his sob story. We would have cried to be a part of that too. We like that Jennifer Lopez cried. We don’t think it was manipulative or acting. We think that this is a person who really knows what it’s like to come from nothing and have a dream. She could really connect with all of these people in a way that Simon Cowell could not. This may lead to emotion. She’s human. And she learned a lesson: Idol will exploit everyone’s weaknesses for entertainment, even those of a famous judge.

We get that some of the contestants are only 15, but the fact that they don’t think they’ve ever heard a Beatles song (they have and just didn’t know it) should bar them from any respectable stage. But some of the people we haven’t seen much of before started to stand out. There ARE some good people on this show this year, they just didn’t have interesting enough stories to get coverage earlier. Singers everywhere: If a close family member gets cancer, your first thought needs to be, “Great, I’m trying out for Idol this year.” Scotty, Robbie Rosen, and Lauren Alaina made it through. We disagree with letting Scotty through. He’s shown himself to be supremely lame during Hollywood week. And if he sings that one song he likes again, we are going to smash our TVs. Molly the White House intern is gone, and we think they should have kept her instead of Scotty. Leeard will be happy, because she hated Molly’s personality. Sadly, they got rid of Hollie Cavanaugh too, even though she certainly held her own during this week. The judges told her to come back in a few years, and we think she should. Then they won’t be able to say she’s too young.

We are so ready for the rest of the top 24 and to get this show and voting started.
