AIS9: Top Five Prediction Guess...

First, let me go ahead and acknowledge the panda in the room. No, I didn't write up a recap of last week's episodes. Why? I don't know. Just didn't feel like it, I guess. I'm a little bit surprised that I've stuck with writing about this season for this long. After all, it's a widely known and universally accepted fact that it's been the worst season of Idol yet. And, to be Frank, I just couldn't bring myself to write another word about it.

I mean, seriously? Shania Twain week?

Ugh...

But anyway, I'm back again with a renewed (yeah, right) zest for writing making snarky comments about the "singers". Slezak's rankings helped.

Last year, "Sinatra" (or maybe it was called "Big Band" night then) night was one of my faves. Danny Gokey's song that night was incredible. I even bought it (if by "bought it", you understand that I mean "downloaded it for free"). But I wasn't that excited to hear they were repeating the theme this year. Of course, that changed when they announced Harry Connick Jr as the mentor/composer for the week. (PS, how sweet would it be if he toured with a band called "The Hendersons"? It'd be "Harry and The Hendersons"!) For me, he made what should have been an unwatchable mess wonderful. I'd love to see him in concert one day...

To catch up with last week, my prediction of the departure of High School Student Aaron Kelly was wrong. (Which I'm not that disappointed in. I mean, I'm very happy to see Siobhan go. Just for the sake of trying to spell her name...) That brings my record to 4 for 8. (Ugh...) That's back to batting .500. Not good.

This week, I can see the bottom three being Aaron, Casey James, and (shocker!) Chrystal. Going home will be Casey, I think. Which stinks, as I really liked his "Jealous Guy" and "Don't". That and, my friend Amanda really likes his face...
