First, before the show even starts, I just have to get that whole "judges save" debacle from last week off my chest. The way I see it, the judges knew they only had two weeks to use that save (last week and this week) and they figured if they didn't use it last week they would HAVE to use it this week and there wouldn't be an ounce of suspense in it because everyone would know in advance they were going to use it. Cheesy, if you ask me. Alrighty, on with the show! Oh wait, one more thing, TubaDad isn't here watching with me because he's out buying milk. Normally that wouldn't even merit a mention, except that he's buying NORMAL milk. That's right, our little girls have finally outgrown their hideous digestive issues and can now drink plain old milk, straight from a regular cow, with lactose and everything. Those of you who know what we've gone through with the insane toddler diarrhea, the endless rounds of GI testing, the goat's milk that was more expensive than liquid gold, and then the lactose-free milk that we could only get in certain stores, will understand why we are cheering like mad over here. Whoooohoooooo! Ok, now on with the show, for real this time. Lil: She seemed really old tonight. Did anyone else think that? Didn't really love anything about the song and haven't really loved anything she sang for 3 or 4 weeks now, and I was a huge Lil fan in the beginning. I think she's going home tomorrow... Kris: The guy really is quite personable and I like to watch him. He does choose interesting, uh, stage configurations. Not sure that's the right word — I'm talking about how he sang that one song a couple of weeks ago with all the girls crowded around him on stage and then this time he was front and center but the musicians were really prominent and right next to him. He doesn't blow my socks off (like Chris did last year), but I don't think he's going home tomorrow. Danny: Started off kind of singsongy or something, but around that "pop, pop, pop" part he kind of picked up energy and looked like he was having a fun time. He really is a nice guy, isn't he? That comes through when he sings. I don't think he'll make it to the finals, but I hope good things happen for him after this show. Oh hey, I just realized that all four judges are talking after each contestant again. Good! It pissed me off last week when they only had two judges talk each time. I wonder if other folks hated it too and they got negative feedback about it? Allison: Wow, that's really a hot outfit she's got on. Have the stylists toned down the Raggedy Ann red hair color a little bit or does it just look different with the curls? Hm, the song seems a little forced or something. Don't get me wrong, it's good, but she's not knocking me over. Dang, I want her to smoke it every week. I don't care, though, her voice is incredible and I'm still voting for her. I want the final to be an Allison-Adam showdown! Adam: Oh goodie, Adam's on! I can't wait to see what he does every week. Oh wow. Seriously wow. Good heavens that boy can sing. Give him a record deal right this second and send him out on tour, I guarantee he will sell out. Hey you know what would be really fun? Have an American Idol favorites singoff — put Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Chris Daughtry, and Adam Lambert in a playoff and see who wins. Oh man I would pay some serious money to see that!!! Matt: Didn't like him last week and still don't like him. Sorry to all the Matt fans out there. He's just not my cuppa tea. He can sing, but I think the American Idol winner needs to have something more that just makes me people stop in their tracks. I think he's going home this week along with Lil. Anoop: Whoa — what's with the mustache?! Eww. Like the suit and pink sweater though, it's a fun look. Ok, to be fair, I think Matt sang better than Anoop. Sigh... But he has a really nice voice. I'm rooting for him because I just plain like him. Ok, here's my ranking, I struggled a little with numbers 5 and 6. I think Lil and Matt are going home tomorrow (although it wouldn't surprise me if it was Lil and Anoop): 1. Adam 2. Allison 3. Kris 4. Danny 5. Anoop 6. Matt 7. Lil How do you guys think they should be ranked?
