American Idol 11: 4/26/12 Results

American Idol dumped one more hopeful last night. Here's the good/bad/ugly of it all...

The Good
  • While I may have only guessed 1 of the Bottom 3, I got the one that mattered the most—Elise, who I correctly predicted would finally be sent packing after many false alarms.
  • Some of Jimmy Iovine's comments were fantastic, like when he said that the disembodied Jessica Sanch-heads scared him. He's not alone. I also loved when he said, "When the judges agree all the time, I fall asleep." Again, he's not alone. And I was glad to see that he hadn't been drinking the Phillip Kool-Aid. I guess he didn't have enough room after guzzling down all of Joshua's blend.
  • Although I'm not sure Katy Perry's pre-taped performance could be considered "good," she looks like the evil Zooey Deschanel so I always enjoy watching her.
The Bad
  • Season 10's Stefano (I guess he dropped the Langone) returned to the Idol stage to perform his new single, "I'm on a Roll." Yeah, he's on a roll with extra cheese. Is he even on a real label? Everything about this screamed Ark Music Factory.
  • Ford commercial, natch.
The Ugly
  • I can't believe the show opened with a Queen tribute band fronted by a chubby Freddie Mercury semi-lookalike, which was actually endorsed by Brian May and Roger Taylor. Tribute bands are one of the worst things, period. If I had to rank terrible things, tribute bands would go somewhere between pickles and Nazis clubbing baby seals.

Yeah, but that Stefano song would be kickass on the treadmill. Cheese and all.

What the Fudgesicle is it with the pickle haters?

And I think Phillip should start planning his exit strategy. Hollie goes next week, and everyone connected with the show desperately wants a Joshua/Jessica final. And I think even Philip is smart enough to know that winning is the worst thing for him.

I like pickles, I like cover bands, and as for Nazis clubbing baby seals, yeah I can't get on board for that last one.

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.
