Hate To Say I Told You So....Uh, No, Actually I Love When I'm Right

Sing it with me, y'all: Nobody does it Vedder....makes me feel sad for the Head.

Justice has been served. Sundance Head is gone. Note to the Top 12 American Idol finalists: there are certain artists you should never cover. Chief among them are Bruce Springsteen, Led Zeppelin, Stevie Nicks and Pearl Jam (obviously). You'll just sound like a very pale imitation unless you are a future classic-in-waiting, capable of infusing those artists' songs with some true originality, which I doubt any of you are.

The other 3 contestants getting the boot tonight were Jared Cotter, Sabrina Sloan and Antonella Barba. No shock where Antonella is concerned. Naked pictures can only hold the public's interest for so long. Her supporters must have finally realized that she couldn't sing.

I was a bit surprised that Jared and Sabrina didn't make it. Jared has been consistently bland, but in a sea of amazingly underwhelming guys he certainly wasn't the worst. Obviously, two Suns should've gone down tonight...Sundance and Sunjaya.

As for Sabrina, last night's performance wasn't her best but at least she didn't just scream off-key, which is what Stephanie Edwards did. I don't quite understand the judges' love for her. Then there is Haley Scarnato, who bores everyone, possibly even herself, to tears. Either one of them should've been waving bye-bye to AI tonight - not Sabrina.

Next week, the real competition starts, and my Top 12 assessment and predictions will follow shortly thereafter.

I agree in most cases - although I think Stephanie has a compelling stage presence.

Right now, they are all chasing Melinda and LaKisha.

Oh, oh, oh, I wish you hadn't said "never cover Stevie Nicks". See, now you're on my "Things to do Before I Die" list: Go to New York, find Beck, find a karaoke bar, force her to listen to "Dreams" sung drunkenly. Over and over.

But, all the rest I agree with.

You're 'nobody does it Vedder...' lyrics were most excellent. I'm singing it right now.

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
