I hope you people realize that I am not going to start watching the Idol results shows until they're on Wednesday nights. (And maybe then I'll only be watching with one eye and ear open.) FOX has unbelievable balls to think it can compete with NBC's Thursday night lineup. I mean, just tonight I was treated to Joel McHale playing pool in the nude, Amy Poehler being awesome as usual and Pam Beasley popping out a baby. (And I'm sure had 30 Rock been on, it would have been amazing as well.) So what, I'm supposed to bag that just to watch The Very Brady Super Terrific Elimination Hour? I think not. Even if I can watch the NBC shows later on demand, they're not worth putting off for this nonsense.
I did manage to catch the beginning of the "I Got A Feeling" group sing, which pretty much solidified my decision to not watch the show. Also aiding in my decision was the announcement that Danny "Smuggie" Gokey was to be the special musical guest. I really didn't need to see that. Let me guess: he wore stupid glasses, smirked a lot, sang an overwrought, cheesy song and nearly ran out of breath after every verse? Yeah. Been there, seen/heard that. Pass.
I flipped on the show a few times during the commercials just to check on who was being eliminated. I was feeling pretty good about myself when both of my male picks, John and Jermaine, were sent packing. The feeling didn't last too long though, since I was wrong on both counts when it came to the girls. Lacey and Didi live to bore me another day, while Michelle and Haeley fade off into obscurity. (Another of Idol's ethnic cleanses, it seems.) As much as it bums me out when my predictions are off, I'm glad to see Haeley go. Not only because she was terrible, but also because spelling her name correctly has been a constant struggle.
