The show dumped a slew of mediocrity on us again, with the exception of Drew, the Justin Beiber fan who took his “Baby” song and made it a jazz fest. That 14-year-old showed a lot of promise. We also enjoyed J. Mark Inman’s “Creep.” He’s horrible, but that was so awkward it was cool. Josh Krajcik’s “At Last” reminded us of American Idol’s Casey, only with a better voice. It was a little too raspy for one of us, because it reminded that blogger of “butt rock.” What’s butt rock? Creed. Creed is butt rock. But his performance was good, overall. Phillip needs to learn that we already had a Frank Sinatra.
The “For Sure” group needs to ditch the two members who keep going flat. We were astounded that the judges were so enamored with them. Finally, we loved watching Simon fight for the girl with the fabulous lips. When he sees something in someone, he’s sure and he’s rabid about it. We love him so much. Does anyone else think that Cheryl Cole was a stronger judge than Nicole? Or are we just bewitched by the accent? She was fired by Simon for “looking bewildered.” We disagree with that choice, but Nicole is a fine second. No one dropped their pants and made Paula throw up, so it’s already better than last week.

America’s Next Top Model
Kristin Cavallari guest judged this episode. This blogger never watched Laguna Beach or The Hills but is willing to bet good money that the other blogger did (other blogger's note: duh I watched both Laguna Beach and The Hills. That's the easiest bet ever). From a first impression, Kristin seemed nice, smart, and articulate. Whatever she was in high school, she seems like a professional producer now. Mario Lopez interviewed the girls with “tough question,” and we didn’t think any of them were particularly tough. Alison got best photo (yay!) and Isis was eliminated. Her photo wasn’t good, but we aren’t sure if it was too soon for Isis to leave.
Isis looks better than most real women, and we admire her for putting herself out there. But off she goes. This is really mean of us to say, but we wonder who she is going to end up with? Like, who would marry her? Straight guys would likely balk and gay guys want a guy, not a woman. Maybe an open-minded lesbian? We hope it’s in the news, so we can see what happens with her. Man, WE should have been the ones to ask the tough questions.
