AIS9: Touring Ten...

Why, Idol? Why? Why must you occupy two nights a week of my time with only thirty minutes of solid entertainment?

Last night, the terribleness that is Season 9 gave us performances by guest "mentor", Miley Cyrus, as well as newly public couple Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas. In other words, it was "let's get as many tweens and teens to watch as possible" night.

I was, once again 2 for 3 on my guess on the bottom three. But with the elimination of Paige Miles, my record of correctly predicting the weekly elimination goes to 1 for 2.

Slezak's got his more detailed recap here, but I know you came for my thoughts. So, without further delay...

  • I can't understand why the judges are so high on Lee Dewyze. He's not great. He's not terrible. He just... is. But one thing's for sure, he looks terrified when he performs...

  • I think Paige's high profile terrible performance of "Against All Odds" contained some of my favorite criticism ever on Idol. The judges slaughtered her (rightfully so) for such a poor performance this late in the show. Also, it just reaffirmed my belief that Ellen is completely useless...

  • For someone that has been in the bottom three for two weeks, Tim Urban gets a lot of cheering...

  • I called that Aaron would pick "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" before he even came on screen. This either means I'm psychic or he's predictable. It's probably a little of both...

  • Chrystal picked a Janis Joplin song. This is probably the best pick by any contestant ever. She also had Miley sign her guitar because she is a "strong, powerful woman". My respect for Chrystal just went down by at least 50%...

  • She also said that her carpet made the stage feel "homey". She should have said it "tied the room together"...

  • I'm officially changing my pick for the winner to her...

  • Andrew Garcia is officially terrible. Not "Paige Miles" terrible. But terrible. Weak voice and weird over enunciating of his words. And, of course, another mention of his performance of "Straight Up". Seriously, just get rid of this guy...

  • Here's exactly what i typed out for Siobhan: "Wow, she speaks so strangely. Why is she dressed like Molly Ringwald going to a prom in a John Hughes movie? Wow, she's good. Oh! Nope. Her ending was terrible. I stinking hate that scream". There's a chance that it could be her and Chrystal in the final, but I'm wondering if her stoner personality will rub viewers the wrong way...

    I did what I could to ease my own private pain with my tweens - picture in picture rocks, and Mythbusters was on...
