Let's get right to it.
I wonder if Paula gets irritated watching Simon and Kara buddy up to each other like that.
I think they should have made Randy don a bikini for the picture.
The only thing worse than watching them ruin some song I love during their group numbers is watching them ruin a song I've never heard before. Let's hear it for autotune.
The Rolling Stones. That will be interesting, although I'm not sure in a good way or a bad way.
Didi's up first. That has to be a good sign for her. I don't think they've ever sent anyone home as the first person up. Plus when you are the first person in you get to have just unbridled joy because you haven't caused anyone to go home.
It's all fine and good to tell Siobhan to keep doing what she's doing, until she's in the bottom three a couple of times. Then what?
Wow. I did not expect that. I like Paige better than Katelyn Epperly, but I didn't think America would see it that way.
She probably should have done that song without the keyboard Tuesday night. Especially since it looked like she wasn't playing it anyway.
Tim, Todrick, Lee, Casey. Just drag em all down there. They aren't even playing with these guys. All of you, get out. We're going to take our chances with just the girls this year. Oh, maybe that was just my wishful thinking.
So my favorite guy and my favorite girl were both the first ones through. I can relax now. And eye candy, I mean Tim, gets through.
How do they think there's tension when you get Lee and Todrick standing next to each other. I thought Todrick was going to say that people came up and said they voted for him, but obviously they were lying.
I stand by my assessment of his vocal. Not good.
So that means that Andrew is going to skate by into the top 12 and either Aaron or Alex will be leaving (I think).
Yeah, because this song makes way more sense as a duet than Baby Grand, which was done as a duet originally (and has .0001% of the cheese factor). And I'm sorry, I still think he can see and he's just been faking it. Of course, he's still pretending he can hit all the notes in the songs he sings.
If Scott has an album out and Matt has a number one single, why did they do a cover?
Has anyone ever looked as somber as Crystal after being told they made it to the top 12?
Well, if it's just between Katie and Lily, Katie has to be the one going home.
And if it's just between Andrew and Alex, maybe I'm going to get my wish after all.
They both look absolutely certain that they will be the one going home. YES! So, I was wrong about who I thought WOULD go home, but exactly right about who I thought SHOULD go home.
Crystal looks like she had no idea what was supposed to be happening here tonight. People are going home girl. If you can't take it now, you're going to be a disaster in about three weeks.
OMG, he's a mess. Nobody wants to be seen like that on TV.
WHATTTTTT?!! Wow. That's the very first surprise of the season. How on earth is Lily the one going home? I'm shocked. Apparently I wasn't the only one that thought this song was bigger than her. But, even considering that, I would still have put her through over Katie.
So, even though I chose both guys wrong, I am not surprised even mildly by those results. In fact, I think they were the right choices.
The women, however, are a different story. I never liked Katelyn, but I'm not sure that Katie and Paige have done any better than her. And I know that Lily didn't deserve to be going home tonight. That was just crazy.
So, here's your top 12 (in something resembling the order I see them -- not exactly, but roughly):
- Crystal Bowersox
- Didi Benami
- Siobhan Magnus
- Casey James
- Lee Dewyze
- Michael Lynche
- Katelyn Epperly
- Andrew Garcia
- Tim Urban
- Paige Miles
- Aaron Kelly
- Katie Stevens
What's your take on tonight's eliminations?
