AIS9: Top Eight Nine...

When Idol started last night, Ryan Seacrest said that there were some surprising results in store for us... And holy moley was he right!

I cannot believe that Big Mike got the lowest number of votes. I mean... I'm stunned. His take on Eleanor Rigby was memorable.... if not perfect. I was (once again) two for three on my prediction of the bottom three. (Tim landed in the top three guys!) And with the judges' save being activated on Big Mike, my prediction of Andrew going home is still going to count as wrong. That puts me at 2 for 4 for the season. Blech... 50%. Terrible.

On to the thoughts...

  • I’m not sure if it was the song (it wasn't) or if it was Aaron (it was), but I was bored out of my mind before he got to the second chorus...

  • Why are all contestants now saying, “If I’m here next week, I’ve got something big planned.” No you don’t. If you’re boring every week, you’ll be boring next week...

  • During the judges' remarks on Katie, Kara sang... LOUDLY. Just when I thought I could like her, she reminds me of why I don't...

  • Like, for instance, how she said something was "classic Andrew". Nothing is "classic Andrew". No one knew who this guy was five weeks ago. And no one will in another five...

  • During the judges' comments on Big Mike's performance, Randy said that Big Mike had earned so much cred, he has artistic license to do anything he wants. And then he was received the lowest number of votes. I take this as a sign that Randy is an idiot... Which I already knew...

  • Chrystal is the only reason that I'm still watching this season. Her use of a digereedoo on Come Together is proof of why... Todd Cooper and Leigh Sarti would be so proud...

  • After Tim's version of "All My Lovin'", Randy said, from now on, he won't compare Tim to the other contestants. Offering instead, that it was a good “Tim” performance. The judges have no idea why this guy is popular. Hey judges, here's a clue: Girls like good looking, talented guys. It's a law of the universe called "duh"...

  • After Randy said that about Tim, Simon said he won’t judge on it being a “Tim” performance. Instead, he said it was a very good performance. Very current. Then he said that he’s proud of Tim for how he’s handled himself so far on the show. This is why everyone cares what Simon thinks, and no one listens to the other three...

  • Umm... Emily Deschanel was there. I love her...

  • Casey James is seriously good on guitar. His performance of Lennon's "Jealous Guy" with only a cello for accompaniment was incredible. Very John mayer-esque. I will be purchasing it as soon as it's available on itunes...

  • I called that Siobhan would pick "Across the Universe" before she even came out. I mean... of course...

  • I have several comments on Lee's version of "Hey Jude". Here we go... It was a perfect example of how these songs are so great, they can elevate anyone. He wasn't on pitch for a lot of it, he looked scared to death, and he brought out a bagpipe, but once the "na na's" hit, everyone was on board. Lee also didn't go for any of the high notes. That plus how he always cuts his final notes short makes me think he's scared to try to hold out a note. It's as if he knows that I think he's not as good as the judges think he is...

  • Wednesday night had one of the worst group numbers I've seen in the shows history. I mean, the lip synching was so terrible, I thought I was watching an old Godzilla movie...

  • No. I don't bother watching the Ford music videos. I fast forward right through that trash...

  • Jason Derulo is a giant joke. First off, if you sing your name at the beginning of your song, you come off as either forgetful or desperate. Second, give Glambert back his jacket. Third, for the correct way to use auto-tune, please refer to T-Pain. You sound terrible. Fourth, Really? Did you just try to end on a Michael Jackson tip toe but couldn’t stick it so you toe walked back three steps? Ugh… You’re the worst...
