Last night we were Ushered through two hours of Soul/R&B on American Idol Season 9. The results were better than the week before but more mediocre than I expected. We are now in the push to win and nobody took the reins of the American Idol Season 9. Three guys won the night. The top girls delivered their weakest performances of the season and Tim Urban, Katie Stevens and Aaron Kelly made their pitches for the bottom 3.
Michael Lynche, Casey James and Lee Dewyze stole the night. Michael Lynche went sensitive with a neo-soul ballad while Casey James and Lee Dewyze updated two old school soul raves and rocked the stage. Top girl Crystal Bowersox struggled through a bland performance and Siobhan Magnus fell apart after the judges criticized her bad performance. Didi Benami sang well but was destroyed by the judges and the judges fawned all over the Andy Garcia’s comeback to mediocrity.
We will see Usher sing a tune from his new release tonight. I think Tim Urban, Katie Stevens and Andy Garcia are in the bottom 3 and I think this is the week that Tim Urban goes back to Texas to wait for the tour. But hey, Kate Goslin survived last night on Dancing With The Stars and Tim Urban is better than Kate. Let’s see what America thinks.
Is the Cracken going to be on American Idol tonight or they just teasing us with a Clash of The Titans trailer? I guess Simon really does really look like the Cracken. Siobhan Magnus looks pretty miserable. Rueben Studdard starts the show with some smooth R&B. Remember this guy? He was on American Idol Season 2. Yeah he won and went into the American Idol winner protection program. Rueben Studdard is good form, but this song sounds like a medley. Why isn’t this guy more popular? Michael Lynche is loving this guy.
So let’s start to slowly build the American Idol Season 9 Top 10 bottom 3. But first a Ford commercial and nothing to say about that. Michael Lynche has attached a pink ponytail to his bald head. Mama Garcia just told Andrew to be himself, even thought judges are calling him boring. Lee Dewyze, who had his best night of the year last night, and even though he is talking way too much he is safe. Casey James also had a terrific night last night and he is safe as well. Aaron Kelly underperformed “Ain’t No Sunshine” last night but he is safe. It is down to Siobhan Magnus and Katie Stevens and Katie Stevens is in the bottom 3. Why is Siobhan Magnus is crying and why are they so focused on her? She is safe.
Next week the American Idol Season 9 Top 9 will perform from the Lennon/McCartney songbook. But now we see Usher using an auto-tuner and I hate that device. The auto tuner and the offensive lyrics cause me to change the channel. No Usher for me.
I am back for the commercial break. Will Didi Benami or Andy Garcia join Katie Stevens and perennial Bottom 3 resident Tim Urban in tonight’s bottom 3? Didi Benami, the judges’ favorite punching bag, is up first and she is in the Bottom 3. The judges might use their save on her. Michael Lynche is on the hot spot now and Ellen is talking about his subtlety and sensitivity. After Mike lifts Ryan over his head, Ryan may rethink his misdirection shenanigans. Crystal Bowersox is safe. Tim Urban and Andy Garcia are the last two left to join to Bottom 3. Nobody can understand why Tim Urban smiles all of the time. He explains it is because he is so grateful for being on the stage. Of course, Tim Urban is in the bottom 3 again. Katie Stevens is sent to safety so we will lose another Christian performer tonight.
That Nationwide Insurance dude with the blue phone makes me laugh.
Diddy Dirty Money, who is that? I thought dude was too busy selling jeans to record songs. I didn’t like that very much.
Money time. After America has voted Didi Benami has been voted off. Oh no! She needs to sing for her American Idol Season 9 life. She sings “Rhianon”. This is a captivating performance but I don’t know if it is enough to keep her on American Idol Season 9. The judges do not save her. I am disappointed we have lost Didi Benami.
Join us next week as American Idol Season 9, the season of the girls, continues with six guys and three girls.
