I am running out of contestants to make fun of. At least we've still got Carrie and Anthony!

I like Carrie. I think she's talented. Bo is my favorite.

So glad Scott is gone. Hope Anthony's next.

Did anyone else think Scott looked he was about to loose it when they were showing his 'journey' video. Scary, dude.

Glad Scott is gone. Connie is going to be fine, much as it would have been cool to see someone I KNOW win this thing, but he isn't the best singer. However he got ALOT of airtime on daytime shows, don't know that the rest of those booted got the same?

I hope it comes down to Bo and Carrie, A needs to go next and I don't love Vonzell. Bo needs to win this thing!

We may not have it all together, but together we have it all

Now I wish I had watched SNL!

Paula trades troubles for laughs on 'SNL'

Quote:
"Corey, that was beautiful," said Poehler's Abdul in critiquing his singing. "You really blew me away. It's like I rolled over and said to you this morning, 'You have real star quality.' I'll see you at home."

...

Abdul's advice on getting her impression just right: "You need to perfect the clap a little more and be a lot more sexier so contestants will be willing to sleep with you."

Sooooooooo sorry for the delay! I haven't been home most of today! Here's what's on for tonight:

Warning :: Spoiler Ahead! Highlight to read message!
This week the categories are Nashville and then "The Philadelphia Song," meaning songs written by the super writing team of KENNY GAMBLE and LEON HUFF.

"The first round of songs will be Nashville," Paula adds. "For Carrie and Bo, it will be very pleasing. Even for Vonzell. She can nail pretty much anything. It will be interesting to see Anthony."




spoilers from Entertainment Tonight.

What can I say about tonight’s show? Scott wasn’t there. All is right with the world.

Another weird t-shirt for Ryan. What did it say? King something? Ryan, dude, no one is talking about Scott Savol. Except his parole officer.

Hey, Seacrest, thank you for telling us that you are holding the map of the USA. Some viewers weren’t sure and thought it was your ego you were carrying in. Yeah, poke out her eye with the state of Maine. Please.

Carrie singing Sin Wagon? I don’t think so, girl. Too prancy. That pink-haired girl a couple of seasons ago did this song so much better. Amy Adams? Oh lordy, Carrie, two words for you: Don’t. Dance. Yikes, she is really jazzed about that sin wagon. Her mom and dad may never speak to her again after this one. She gets a tongue bath from the judges. : We saw personality? I saw desperation.

Holy Hollywood! Holy sellout! Was that Bo getting his unruly eyebrows tamed in the makeup trailer?

Jazz, Mikalah and Latoya in da house.

OK, can I just say that Bo’s mom is hot?! Song intro please? I lurve Bo even though I don’t know the song. He looks like he’s had another VO5 hot oil treatment. No more frizzy, flyaway hair. OMG, so cute! Love his smile! Did I mention I lurve him???? Simon, shut the up. Bo’s grandma is sooo gonna whoop Simon after the show. Simon freaking out, totally looking around for his bodyguards.

Vonzell, you know I love you girl, but that was a bit pitchy at the beginning. I love that song but it was a little out of tyune, as Simon would say. I fear for my baby Vee. The power was missing. She just didn’t bring it, except at the end. Well, a little yelly. She didn’t have her best night. What’s up with Vee? I seriously got weepy when she said she loves her daddy. She is sweet and I like her and that means she is going home tomorrow.

Anthony, anyone who starts the song sitting on the stage just sucks, OK? What the song is that? He is definitely getting a job with Carnivale cruise lines when this is over. I mean they’ve probably already called him. Ryan is too busy adding product to his hair to intro the songs. : Randy, dude, you are so deaf. Even Simon liked him. :Puke And yet he added that funny comment about gooey & syrupy. Simon, I almost liked you for a millisecond there.

Could there BE any more commercials???

Carrie cries cuz she misses her sisters. Oops, sorry. She actually did a good job on that song. Oh god, she might just win this thing. BUT WAIT. Randy didn’t like it… wow. Paula didn’t like it… wow. Simon didn’t like it… eek. But why oh why couldn’t Simon have given her the pack-your-suitcase kiss of death?

Bo, you are such a good son. I lurve his beard. OMG the outfit! Hot hottie hot! The sandals! The shades! Did I mention the chest hair? Paula doing the dancy and the jumpy. She’s back on the meds. But seriously, I Bo. I don’t know if I mentioned that. Is it hot in here? Oh, yeah, and he sings good, too.

Vee, sweet things you said about your parents. She was really good. She has more charisma and personality in her little finger than Carrie has in her whole body including that big blond hairdo. Simon, eat and die.

OMG, freaky red head teen boy from last year in da house. :

OK, round 2 for Anthony. Let’s just say that song was your audition for Carnival Cruise lines and dude, they liked what they saw. Can you be in Miami tomorrow?

Gamble and Huff wrote some mighty fine songs, I have to say that.

Did I say I Bo?

OK, that’s all I got. Except, Bo I luuuuuuuuuuuuurve you!

none of this is spoilers, really.

i just don't understand what is the big deal about carrie. I know she's talented. yes, she is, but so were hundreds of AI contestants. Is she just getting all the country vote? Cranberry, I agree about the dance moves. There are just a few and prancy is the word.

bo and vonzell are just a gazillion times better than the other two. But I fear for vonzell, too.

Carrie: I didn't really know what you meant by prancy...now I do. I think I was more wowed by the fiddler guy. And what exactly is a "sin wagon"?

Bo: I like the low key song and outfit tonight.

Vonzell: Oooh, bad start. Yipes! And she messed up the lyrics. Cool dress though.

Anthony: For some reason, that song creeped me out with him singing it. But he did do better than Vonzell...

: I think Paula did say Clive Davis is going to be there next week. The constestants will do 3 songs each: one they select themselves, one selected by the judges and one selected by Clive. Last year he selected some interesting songs for the kids. Can't remember what they were. I'll have to look that up. I just remember Jazzy sang and he didn't like it? And that week she finally got cut.

I read somewhere that Vonzell was upset last night because her dog died. Seriously. Don't know if it's true. ETA: I feel sad for my baby Vee.

Also, Corey Clark is now claiming he has proof of his relationship with Paula... hmm, videotape anyone? Polaroids? DNA, perhaps?

Clive Davis is a record producer.

Okay, last night...I actually thought Anthony did pretty good. Not my style, but he didn't mess anything up and the ballads suit him.

Carrie sucked, even in "her" genre. I usually like Vonzelle, but I think she's gone and we'll have another week of "He's so a-MAZ-ing" Anthony.

Bo was pretty good...unga-bunga.

Someone throw some water on me...Bo is so yummy. You are right: the sandals, the shades, the chest, his voice.
Vonzell: I really liked the second song.
Anthony: Didn't suck as bad as he usually does.
Carrie: Loved the first song. Amy did it really well, too in a previous season...probably a little better. But I do like Carrie because she seems so down-to-Earth. She doesn't try to sell herself..she is like "whatever". I think that is funny.

Probably good-bye Vonzell.

I miss sexy Constantine. It would have been cool to see what he came up with in the finals.

I thougt everyone did a good job last night, including Anthony. In fact, I was a little amazed by him. Vonzell did really mess up the lyrics, I think she started singing the wrong verse. I wish it were Anthony leaving, but it may be Vonzell. However, those tears may win her some sympathy votes, it was really sad. Then again, we may be surprised and see Carrie or Bo leave.

I am such a loser. :

I need to get a life. :

I am desperately waiting for idolmedia.tv to post last night's songs so I can watch Bo sing that Money song again (and again and again).

If he gets voted off, I will not watch the rest of the season. Seriously.

Well then this will not be so well received..... : But I don't like Bo! EEK!!!
I find him very unattractive and he rocks out to every song....even when you shouldn't be rockin to them. He definitely likes to yell through every song..."money" suited him well and I thought her did a good job of it....though it involved allot of borderline screaming...which is his style.
I am disappointed that he seems to have picked up that terribly annoying habit of Constatines and carries the mike stand all over the stage with him!

As for Anthony....is that his accent coming through in his singing that makes it so...unenjoyable? I find that he seems like he is talking through some parts of the songs...and is he in pain or trying to feel the emotion of the song. My personal opinion is that he should go tonight....sorry Anthony!

And Carrie...I think she is cute....she reminds me of a cousin of mine that dies when she was 20 so it doesn't really matter how she sings to me. I like her anyway. However she definitely has her element and that is country music...and I think she is one of the better for "preforming" and acting like she is having fun at least. I also didn't think she did as bad of job as Simon thought she did with "If you don't know me by now".

And Vonzell...I think she is super. I really do...I totally enoyed the second song she sang even though I didn't know it well. Simon called her manic and that he was nervous or stressed for her...I thought she looked like she was having fun. I like her voice....I think she has lots of potential. They probably thought she was weak though losing it during the first song.....

I guess we'll see....however my fingers are crossed that Anthony sings his last song tonight and that the girls are the final two contestants....although I wouldn't really be surprised if one of them gets voted off tonight.

I think that is exactly his problem. It seems so unnatural when he sings, like he is reading the words or something.

bo's sandals made me laugh :LOL and then i wanted to run my fingers through his yummy hair over and over and over and... did i just say that on the public web?

and vonzell: really, her pooch died? *sniff sniff* i was just remembering last night that you've come a long way, baby vee, from your early performances. reminded me of kimberly locke.

anthony: you did okay, but are you on steroids or something? your face looks chubbier now than in the beginning...

carrie: you are so sweet, but natalie maines shows more personality in two phrases of that song than you have in the entire season thus far. i want to like you, really, i do, and i respect your "whatever" attitude because that's a healthy way to be most of the time, but i won't be buying your album.

now bo's album, on the other hand, can't wait to see what ends up on that...

and did you hear that bo's girlfriend is about 3 months pregnant?

and bo's mom does not look old enough to be his mom. she looks guh-ood. hope i look like that when my son is 29. ha ha...
