This Space For 5/19/10 American Idol Results

It's a Lee/Crystal Finale, as we all knew it would be. Maybe I'll come up with some words tomorrow to sum up tonight's bore-fest. I just don't have it in me right now. I don't know if I'm coming down with something or if I'm just super tired. Does anyone know what the symptoms of Bieber Fever are? I sure hope I don't have it.

EDIT: Well, it's Thursday morning and I'm still not really in the mood to recap last night's show. It was a real snoozer. Even the announcement of the Final 2 was anticlimactic, and not just because everyone already knew who it was going to be. No, it was because Seacrest, who normally loves to drag that nonsense out, made a big deal about ol' Dead Eyes being the first person going to the Finale but then just kind of casually mumbled something like, "And theotheroneisCrystalBowersox." Even Dreadsox was confused. She was like, "Am I safe?"

Ah well. In Ryan's defense, he was suffering from Bieber Fever. He was also in a rush to get Crystal off the stage so that he could console Casey.

Just so everyone knows, I was totally joking about possibly having Bieber Fever myself. I'm pretty sure I'm immune to it, thank God. Actually, last night was the first time I'd ever heard one of that kid's songs and, as I suspected I would feel, I didn't see what the big fuss was about. The songs were catchy enough, but the whole display was so very Brady.

I will say that I did enjoy the other musical guest, Travis Garland, despite the stupid dance routine and the fact that he was "discovered" by Perez Hilton. (Did you all know that he used to be in a boy band with Glee's Kevin McHale? If not, now you do and now you can sleep.) I thought his song, "Believe," was totally catchy and found him rather entertaining. I can't really explain why. Sometimes I really am just a 12-year-old.

My favorite part of last night's show? Why, Lee's triumphant return to the paint store, of course. It was so inspiring to see a young man break out of the drudgery of the retail world and make a better life for himself. I can't even imagine the horrors of his old life behind that paint store counter. I'm eagerly awaiting the Lifetime movie, Paint Yourself a Perfect Moment: The Lee DeWyze Story, starring Ivan Sergei.

I'm not bothering with it anymore. I've pulled the plug!

Scope said...

I'm no doctor, but I play one on the internets, and I think "Bieber Feber" may have an echo of "MMMBop" to it.

Should I cheer for Lee since we both have lived in Mt. Prospect or Crystal (Meth) Bowersexy to see the trainwreck of the producers trying to make her a pop-princess.

Ouch. Heff screwed the pooch this time.

The most entertaining part of the night for me was trying to count Crystal's dads teeth!

That was quite the family reunion, eh?

I'm still laughing at the Ivan Sergei comment. Awesome.

He might be a tough long in the tooth to play Lee though, by now. But he IS better looking...

Heather said...

To tell you how bad this season is - 47 million votes last night. The year before - 88 million. I think Ford is overpaying for those ads. :)

Yeah, no big surprise. I am a sucker for those going home videos though. I love to get all choked up with them. Though Crystal's video evoked no emotion from me--I don't know why.

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.
